Two major expansions are coming to the popular on-property resorts at Walt Disney World.
According to an announcement in the Disney Parks Blog, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is adding a new tower with 500 rooms, and will also refurbish its existing rooms and “transform its landscape with floating gardens and an island oasis that connects the resort through a series of bridges.”
In addition, the new fifteen-story tower– overlooking the centerpiece lake Lago Dorado– will offer rooftop dining and panoramic views of fireworks from the Disney theme parks.
At the same time, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will be expanding with new waterfront dining and retail shopping areas in its Centertown marketplace.
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort opened in 1988 in the Epcot Resort area of Walt Disney World, while Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort opened almost a decade later in 1997 near Disney’s Animal Kingdom park.
