“For many of our guests, magical memories begin at one of our 27-themed resorts each and every day,” said Josh D’Amaro, senior vice president of Walt Disney World Resort Operations. “At Walt Disney World Resort, we continue to expand our portfolio and invest in new resort developments that allow even more guests to be immersed in all that a Disney resort has to offer.”
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will also reimagine its current resort rooms and transform its landscape with floating gardens and an island oasis connected by a series of bridges to other areas of the resort. The transformation will stay true to the resort theme, reflecting the vibrant spirit of adventure that lived within the Spanish explorers of North America.

Coming to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will feature a new waterfront dining area and a retail shopping area, creating a new landscape from the resort’s current marketplace, Centertown. The new centralized location will offer the resort’s Guests more convenient access to services, amenities and dining.
This is great news for the convention visitor, now the CEO's and other convention Big wigs can now stay in a more high end room. Disney has in the past lost some conventions to other resorts because of the lack of high quality rooms. When conventions were at the resort the CEO's would stay off sight at hotels such as The Waldorf Astoria or The Four Seasons. Disney now has a chance to keep more money on property with the addition of this new high rise tower.
