Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (moderate resort) Now Has Queen Beds
All of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (moderate) buildings now have queen beds except the rooms that have one king bed option. There are still a few rooms throughout CSR that have 2 double beds – these are being converted to King bedded rooms.
This change to queen beds is to keep Disney competitive with other Orlando area convention hotels. At this point, I’m told that there are no plans to convert the other moderate resorts to queen beds. The rooms at CSR were built a little larger than the other moderate level resorts and Walt Disney World is concerned that going to queen beds in the other moderate resorts might make the rooms too cramped.
Building 9B is being converted to “Business Class” Club level with personalized front desk & Guest services, turndown services, a lounge with continental breakfast and snacks. (See the resort map)
At this point, buildings 8A & 8B are my top building request for family travelers. These buildings offer a good combination of access to the “Dig Site” feature pool, bus stop, and a reasonable walk to the food court / lobby. Disney cannot guarantee building requests but they do try to honor them where possible and only a very small percentage of guests make any building requests at all.
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is my top recommendation for Disney moderate resorts because of the beds and amenities. This resort has a fitness center; the other moderate resorts don’t. This has the best food court of any of the Disney resorts – although it does get busy. This is the most “deluxe” feeling and looking of the Disney moderate resorts.
My second choice is Port Orleans Riverside because the boat transportation to Downtown Disney expands the guests’ restaurant options. The boogy-woogy sing-along in the River Roost Lounge and the seasonal campfire storytimes at this resort are also nice extras.
