After we suffered through sleeping on double beds at the Pop Century resort the last time we were at Disney World, we decided we had no choice but to upgrade to a moderate resort just to have the option of sleeping on Queen beds. After going through all the options, we finally decided on Coronado Springs. This is a sprawling moderate resort built around a beautiful lake in a southwestern theme.
I was a little disappointed this time that we were staying in a resort that was themed more for the adults than the kids - it was a sharp contrast to the value resorts. But don't get me wrong, this resort was extremely nice and clean! When we first arrived there was the towel in the shape of a Mickey Head on the bed, and lots of pool options - so my kids were happy (it doesn't take much, really!)
The food court had lots of yummy things for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They had lots to offer in the Tex-Mex flavor to go along with the theme of the resort.
The Pool area was the best part of this resort!! There was a huge ancient pyramid that water
flowed down and an awesome water slide into the big pool! The staff played games everyday with the kids in the pool (I am pretty sure they do this at all the Disney Resorts)
The only main complaint we had about the Coronado Springs resort was that the resort was SO SPREAD OUT! You practically had to get in your car and drive to other places in the resort like the pool or the food court or the bus pick up. That was a major bummer, because after walking all day long at the Disney Parks, the last thing you want to do is half to walk a country mile to go somewhere around the resort.
