Lots of changes are in the works over at Coronado Springs Resort. The addition of a tower and a new restaurant in the middle of the lagoon are in the works, and making good progress. Let’s see what’s changed since our last update.

There’s some steel framing up around the entrance. Probably bus shelters or something similar.

They’re finishing up these themed steel decorations. Not sure what they’re supposed to look like, but they certainly make a statement!

Once it’s finished, there should be a gleaming golden dome on the middle tier here. The base can be seen there, but the dome itself has yet to go up.

At ground level, they have a long way to go. They have the frame for a walkway awning up, but not much else. Lots of landscaping left to do.

Villa del Lago

The new restaurant on the lagoon is coming along nicely as well.
