New Details Released for Gran Destino Tower Coming to Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort

We previously shared that an expansion is coming to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, including a 15 story tower at the resort.  Bob Chapek, Chairman for Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products just announced new details about the resort, including the name of the tower, the Gran Destino Tower.  The tower is expected to be completed sometime in July 2019.  It will serve at the new main entrance for guests coming to the resort.  The new tower will also add 545 guest rooms and feature the two story lobby.  50 of the rooms will be suites.  Guests will also be excited for the new table service restaurant that will reside on the top of the tower, offering amazing views of Walt Disney World.

The tower is influenced by design elements and finishings that match classic Spanish styles.    All of the other resort rooms at the entire property for Disney’s Coronado Springs resorts have been updated with new fixtures, furnishings and lighting.  This means that 1,800+ rooms have been completely updated.  There have been new walkways added that stretch across the water so that guests can get from place to place easier around the resort.

Reservations for the new tower are expected to open soon, with stays beginning in July 2019.  We will keep you posted as we learn more!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
