Coronado Springs Resort: A Hidden Treasure

My family and I really enjoy visiting the various Walt Disney World resorts and spending a little time walking around and taking in the ambiance.  We go through phases where a particular resort becomes a favorite.  For the longest time that resort was Disney's Art of Animation.  Lately our allegiance has shifted to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. 

I know that it may come as a surprise to some that we would enjoy this resort as it consistently gets a bad name as a "business" resort because of its onsite conference center.  I say that this is all the better reason to visit Coronado Springs and would make a great choice when planning a vacation.  Every time I visit Coronado Springs it is a very quiet and relaxing experience.  The beautiful scenery and southwest motif is right up my alley.

This moderate resort boasts a quick service restaurant (The Pepper Market) as well as a table service restaurant (The Maya Grill).  Both look to have amazing menus staying true to the southwestern theme of the resort.  My wife and I hope to report back after our anniversary dinner at Maya Grill in a few weeks.  Besides the fact that Coronado Springs has two amazing restaurants, it also an amazing pool (The Dig Site) that is, in my opinion, one of the nicer pools at all of Walt Disney World.  The giant pyramid and water slide make it aesthetically pleasing as well as fun!

The next time you have a little time to kill while at Walt Disney World and you are the type of person who truly enjoys the effort that Walt Disney World puts into theming, I suggest you head on over to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.  I truly believe that it is a hidden treasure.  Just to give you a little taste of what you will find I have put together a slideshow of some of the sights from my last walk through the resort.

As you go through the video keep your eye out early for my favorite Hidden Mickey on Walt Disney World property. (hint: Lobby/Lights/High on Wall)
