On a whim, Stitchy and I made the trek to Florida to ring in the Coolest Summer Ever with Magic Kingdom’s 2015 24-hour event. We thought it would be a great opportunity to check out some resorts we haven’t called home yet. We really enjoyed our stay at Coronado Springs! A fantastic staff, amazing pool area and gorgeous grounds make this a repeater for sure!

Coronado Springs’ table service offering features American and Mexican dishes with a Tex-Mex twist in a gorgeous setting.
Pepper Market offers a variety of options for almost every taste. This is a great place to use those quick service dining credits!
On the run? Stop in at Cafe Rix just off the main lobby for grab and go goodies including the best cinnamon rolls on property! Yes, even better than Gaston’s!
A draw for the convention crowd, Rix Lounge is a nice place to stop in after the parks for a light snack and a wind down in somewhat dramatic surroundings.
Coronado Springs also offers table service dining at the intimate Las Ventanas near Rix Lounge. In addition, Laguna Bar is located just outside El Centro for waterside drinks. The Dig Site recreation and pool area features Siestas Cantina for quick service and drinks while you sunbathe.
The Dig Site
The Dig Site is home to a handful of recreation options at Coronado Springs from a great pool to volleyball to play areas to a nightly Movie Under the Stars.
Each area also boasts its own “quiet pool.” This one is in the Cabanas.
