Accessible Room at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

We’ve only stayed in a wheelchair accessible room at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort once but we really enjoyed our stay. As far a themeing goes, it’s not the most “Disney” resort you can stay in but it’s beautiful and the room was nice. Here is an overview of the wheelchair accessible room with roll in shower that we stayed in.

The room size was great. The way the door was at an angle so there was plenty of space to get in and out of the room. There is a large space next to the entertainment center/dresser that can be used for storage.

I get a lot of questions asking about the height of the bed so I thought I would give you a visual. It was just a little lower than my wheelchair so it was easy to get into and out of. There was also enough space between the bed and the wall so you can choose which side of the bed you want to use.

Another feature that I liked was that the sink was separate from the rest of the bathroom. It makes getting ready in the mornings so much easier. The sink was easy to roll under and I could use the mirror. The closet is also located here. There was enough space for me to store my suitcase and use the lowered shelf.

The shower was also easy to use. There is lots of space in the bathroom and as usual the only thing I needed Drew to do was lower the shower head for me. This isn’t my favorite roll in shower, it resembles the ones at some of the value resorts but the drainage was better.

The only thing that was a little awkward was trying to use the refrigerator. The door opened in one direction and then the refrigerator opened the other way. Luckily the door opened wide enough for me to open it, move, and then open the refrigerator. But it would have been nice if I didn’t have to do the refrigerator dance every time I wanted something to drink. 🙂

We loved the accessible room at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. There was lots of space, everything was easy to use, and the decor was cool. If you have any questions just leave a comment below.

    We have stayed at Boardwalk, Port Orleans, Old Key West, Carribean Beach, and our home resort is Saratoga Springs. They are all nice and spacious. Old Key West is the most spacious. The only big complaint I have is that the beds are all too high. I have called Saratoga Springs and they assured me they would have a lower bed before my arrival and to my disappointment, they did not!! I’m getting older and it’s really hard for me to transfer. It would be impossible to even use a transfer board. We have this same issue every time we travel. Hampton Inn is one of the only places that seems to have lower beds!!

      Thanks for the insight! I haven’t stayed at a few of those resorts. I wish the bed heights were more uniform in the accessible rooms. I’ve had good luck at some Disney resorts and others not so much. I’m going to try and remember to include them in my reviews. 🙂

      I think there are accessible rooms with the roll in showers in each area of the resort. We had a preferred room and were in the Casitas section.

    I love that you include so many photos and even use yourself as a prop so we can get a real idea of the amenities. Makes it uber useful!

    Excellent post regarding the accessible rooms, Melissa. I just adore the theming at this resort – I think it’s stunning! Maybe someday we’ll get to stay here.

    FQ has lamp posts on the sidewalks, making it a bit tricky to get around. It was built before ADA went into effect. Just thought you should know. I had a little trouble getting around using my ROLLATOR. Their rooms are nice, though. Pretty roomy.

    We stayed at the Port Orleans French Quarter wheelchair room about 2 weeks ago and loved it there too! I did like that they had a closet armoire outside the bathroom with a good amount of hanging space with a tall side and also a shorter more accessible side. It’s my daughter who is in the wheelchair so it’s hard to judge if it would work for an adult trying to get around by themselves but it was great for us. We did 2 queen size beds so there was a bit less room than if it was a king room but her chair did fit from the door by the beds to the bathroom with no issues.

      That is good to know! We haven’t stayed at French Quarter yet but I really want to. 🙂
