- Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, which is themed to resemble Mexico and the American Southwest, is one of Disney’s moderate resorts. The resort complex has 1,967 rooms divided into three regions; The Casitas, with their colorful plazas and fountains; The Ranchos, highlighted by an arroyo, a rocky stream bed; and The Cabanas, evoking theÂ spectacular Mexican coastal regions. The entire resort is set around a 15 acre lake known as “Lago Dorado” (or “Golden Lake”). The 0.9 mile long Esplanade which circles the lake is the perfect path for leisurely strolls or bike rides, while paddle boat and kayak rentals are available on the lagoon.
