LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.

Walt Disney World Resort began work on a new 15-story tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort that will bring an additional 500 rooms with suites and concierge level services. The new tower overlooks Lago Dorado and will offer rooftop dining with views of nighttime fireworks at nearby theme parks.

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort will also reimagine its current resort rooms and transform its landscape with floating gardens and an island oasis connected by a series of bridges to other areas of the resort. The transformation will stay true to the resort theme, reflecting the spirit of adventure.

Additionally, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort will feature a new waterfront dining area and a retail shopping area, creating a new landscape from the resort's current marketplace, Centertown. The new centralized location will offer the resort's guests more convenient access to amenities and dining.

The addition of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort tower will bring the number Walt Disney World Resort rooms to nearly 30,000 within its 27 resort hotels. And more event areas are coming online, as a result.

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort features 220,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space.
