To welcome fall travelers, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will open with its new 15-story Gran Destino tower (check out my exclusive offer in August), adding 500-plus guestrooms – including suites and concierge-level services – and crowned by a rooftop restaurant.

New waterfront dining and a retail shopping area have come to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, while a mid-December opening is planned for Disney’s Riviera Resort, a Disney Vacation Club property inspired by the enchantment of the European Riviera.

Disney's Newest Hotel Lacks Imagination

Disney’s Gran Destino Tower resembles the now defunct, Aladdin Hotel and Casino is Las Vegas.

Disney’s Gran Destino Tower resembles the now defunct, Aladdin Hotel and Casino is Las Vegas.

Disney has recently announced that bookings for the new Gran Destino Tower will become available on November 27, 2019. The resort officially opens in July 2019, but no work yet on an exact date.

I’ve been writing about Disney for over a decade and have always been impressed with Disney’s projects. But I can’t help but think this hotel lacks true Disney imagination. Is it just me or does Gran Destino Tower look like the defunct Aladdin Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas? At the very least, it looks like a Holiday Inn. Is this the best Disney Imagineers could do?

I think Disney is known for building amazing and unique hotels. Think about Wilderness Lodge, Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Polynesian refurbishment, and even Art of Animation. These resorts represent the Disney Difference, truly unique hotels with over-the-top attention to detail, especially in regards to time and place.

Big news for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort this week! All 1,800 rooms have now been fully updated with new fixtures, furnishings and lighting.

If you’ve ever stayed at Coronado Springs you know it’s a long walk from many of the rooms to the main lobby. Disney announced that new walkways will stretch across the lake will help shorten the trip. Plus a new restaurant is in the works and will be situated on an island in the middle of the lake!

The new tower, to be completed sometime in July 2019, will serve as the new main entrance at Disney’s Coronado Springs resort, and will add 545 Guest rooms and 50 suites, as well as feature a two-story lobby.

A second themed table-service restaurant is also planned for Coronado, this one at the top of Gran Destino Tower, which will offer views of the Walt Disney World Resort.

Finally the Disney Skyliner will be operational sometime in the Fall of 2019.

You’ll be able to book the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort soon, according to Disney. Stay tuned.
