BREAKING: New Coronado Springs Addition Named Gran Destino Tower
At the IAAPA GM and Owners’ Breakfast, Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek revealed more information about the new additions coming to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, including the name of the new tower coming to the resort, the Gran Destino Tower.
The tower, set to open in July 2019, will be the new main entrance point for visiting guests, adding a total of 545 new guest rooms (including 50 suites) to the resort, as well as being home to a gorgeous two-story lobby. A themed table-service restaurant is also coming to the top of Gran Destino Tower, which will provide incredible views of the Walt Disney World Resort.
Located on the shore of Lago Dorado, the re-imagined Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort celebrates the daring spirit of the great Spanish explorers, artists, writers and architects. Throughout the resort, guests will find a blend of classic Spanish influences, creative Disney touches and modern luxuries both inside and out. The resort’s more than 1,800 existing rooms have also been refurbished with new fixtures, furnishings and lighting. A second new restaurant, Villa del Lago, is planned to open on an island in the middle of the resort’s 14-acre lake, Lago Dorado. New walkways will stretch across the water, making it convenient to visit no matter where guests stay at the resort. A fresh color palette ties the entire resort experience together, blending the new and refurbished elements of this re-imagined resort.
