PHOTOS, VIDEO: Cabanas Building Erased from Existence as Expansion of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Continues

Just a few months ago, Disney finally announced their massive expansion plans for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, including a 15-story tower. We decided to head back to Coronado again last week to see the latest progress on the work (last time we visited, the work had just begun in earnest).

Here is our second video update on the project showing the demolition progress on the former Cabanas building:

From the check-in parking lot, plenty of walls/fences are within the view of guests.

The bridge is now covered with fencing as well. This fence was going up while we filmed the previous update.

A look into the site from the nearest hotel building. As you can see, Cabanas 9B is history.

One small wall is all that remains of the former guest lodging.

We will continue to visit Coronado Springs as work continues on this massive expansion project, so stay tuned for more in the coming weeks and months.
