CONFIRMED: Expansions of Caribbean Beach and Coronado Springs Resort Hotels

From the Disney Parks Blog:

Whenever it’s time to share exciting news about a new expansion project, I remember one of my favorite Walt Disney quotes. “We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Today, we are thrilled to share with you that changes are on the horizon at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort over the next two years and let me tell you, there is a lot to be excited about!

The expansion at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will include a new 15-story tower that will add 500 rooms, featuring suites and concierge level services. The resort will also refurbish its current resort rooms and transform its landscape with floating gardens and an island oasis that connects the resort through a series of bridges.

The new tower overlooking Lago Dorado, the resort’s centerpiece lake, will allow guests to experience something truly unique, rooftop dining with panoramic views of popular nighttime fireworks from nearby Disney theme parks.

Also during this exciting time, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will be reimagined with new additions to the resort’s current marketplace, Centertown, including new waterfront dining and retail shopping areas. This centralized location will offer the resort’s guests more convenient access to services, amenities and dining.

At Walt Disney World Resort, many of our guest’s magical memories start at one of our 27-themed resorts each and every day, which is why we will always continue to “move forward” and “create new experiences” that are integral to the overall resort experience!

    So expansion, but not DVC expansion. What are the chances these will just be regular moderate hotels when all is said and done because to me it’s pounds like there making them more in line with a deluxe resort. With the add on of new dining and restarting offerings?
    Or could this be a start to a new classification of resort sorta like a mid deluxe range hotel, where they can charge a little bit more than moderate but not quite deluxe then move up art of animation into a next level between value and moderate????
    Still seems like a lot of unanswered questions.
