Opening on August 1, 1997, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort ushered in a new age for Walt Disney World Resort properties. Often nicknamed “the Convention Resort”, Coronado Springs Resort was Disney’s first attempt at a moderately priced convention-centered property. At a staggering 25-plus acres, Coronado Springs is full of amenities to welcome the weary tourist, whether he be business person or park guest. Walking and biking trails, a large serene lake, multiple restaurants (quick service and sit-down), full gym and beauty salon are just a few of the resort’s impressive features.

However, the true beauty of this resort can be seen when a keen eye takes a closer look at all the carefully chosen decorative details.  Color, architecture, landscape and ingeniously placed props work together to tell the backstory of this American-Southwest/Mexican themed resort. Hopefully, after completing this week’s quiz, you will gain a deeper appreciation for this often over looked resort.

Erin Stough has always loved Disney, but the magic of the parks truly captured her imagination during a mother-daughter trip in 2001.  The fire was ignited and Erin hasn’t looked back! When she isn’t devouring Disney related books, Erin spends time with her wonderful (and patient) husband and super pup Milo.

    The pool at CSR is AMAZING!! The pool was what influenced me to book to stay there years ago. It is something and even more spectacular at night. The best part is that the hot tubs face that incredible temple so you can enjoy the scenery while bubbling away.
