We stopped by Coronado Springs this week to see how construction and refurbishment has been going at the moderate resort. Disney’s Coronado Springs Expansion continues and you can check out how far things have progressed since our last construction report.

Repainting and Refurbishment

We’ve been watching the resort turn a darker shade, but this image gives you a really good idea about the new color scheme compared to the old. This is the last remaining part that’s not painted on the right, it’s just in the construction zone and can’t be painted until walls are moved.


Pathways in the lake

Construction continues on the bar and grill going in the middle of the lake.

Foundation is currently being set and we should see the structure go vertical soon. This will be awesome to visit once completed.


The Fifteen Story Tower

You can see the lower levels are starting to be enclosed with weatherproofing materials. The building has yet to be topped off, and there’s still plenty of work to be done within the next 12 months.

From the parking lot, entering El Centro.

You can see a circular structure on the far right side of the building. This is about halfway up the tower, perhaps it’s a convention space or outdoor relaxation area.

We did a lap around the lake to see different vantage points of the new tower. It’s angled perfectly to not look horrendous from anywhere inside of the resort. Genius, really.

Pretty, right?


We also captured some images from the front of the tower, looming over the construction zone.

It’s going to be VERY impressive once completed.

The massive parking lot expansion in front of the main lobby is also nearing completion. We should see this area paved and being used within the coming weeks.
