Disney is always finding new and exciting experiences to bring to the guests who visit the Disney Parks. One of the more well known updates has been a major face lift to the Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. This update includes a 15-Story Tower bringing an additional 1800+ rooms with it, new walk ways over the scenic Lago Dorado, and a beautiful new water front dining location aptly named “Villa del Lago”. Here at Chip and Co. we have been monitoring the resorts progress and recently visited Coronado Springs Resort to get some updated photos of the construction progression.
Last we showed the framework was mostly complete and now we can see that the skeleton of the building is being covered by siding and weather barrier. In the photo below we can see they have finished the bottom portion of the walkway and are in the process of putting the protective fencing and stanchions up along the walkway edges. These walkways will allow guests to travel across the resort with ease and comfort all while taking in the never before seen views from Lago Dorado point of view. The walkways are clearly still blocked from guest usage at the moment until construction is complete.
Villa Del Lago is located on an island constructed in the middle of Lago Dorado and will have easy access walkways from both ends of the resort. Diners will have a gorgeous view of the Resort and Waterfront at this table service dining location.
There is still plenty of work to be done at Coronado Springs Resort and we will be there to keep you updated until the grand reopening commences. Check back at Chip and Co. for more updates to Coronado Springs and other updates to the Disney Parks and Resorts.
