We just had our second stay in a wheelchair accessible room at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This time in one of the newly updated rooms. As far a themeing goes, it’s not the most “Disney” resort you can stay in but it’s beautiful. And I thought the room was really nice. Here is an overview of the room we stayed in.
Here are a few photos of what the rooms looked like during our first stay. This room had a king bed and a roll in shower. The bathroom wasn’t my favorite so I was glad there was an update.
Now on to the updated room! There is still some construction happening at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. They are building a new tower near the lobby. They are also updated the Pepper Market which is the quick service location. Most (if not all) of the rooms have been updated. We didn’t notice any extra noise from the construction so it had a minimal impact on our trip. We did get some really cool pins because of the ongoing updates. If you want an overview of what is happening at the resort, head over to Disney Tourist Blog.
I know a lot of people aren’t fans of the updated rooms but I really liked them. It has a modern feel with a few Disney touches. The carpet has been replaced by a vinyl flooring that looks like hardwood. This made rolling around the room so much easier. I have read that people have found these rooms to be noisier but we didn’t have any issues.
Our room had two queen beds. There are some with just one king. Both beds were nice and low. I could also easily roll between the two of them. The room felt really spacious as well. There was lots of room near the door and space to put my suitcase near the bathroom.
Part of the reason the room felt so spacious was because the furniture was streamlined. The desk, dresser, refrigerator, and closet are all one piece of furniture. There were only three drawers but it wasn’t a big deal for us. I never really unpack everything. But there are lots of USB and regular outlets.
The closet was nice and accessible. I could reach both bars and there was plenty of space for the two of us. You’ll also find the iron, ironing board, hairdryer, and an extra blanket and pillow inside.
The best part of the room, in my opinion, was the bathroom. I was not a fan of the old roll in shower rooms here. The tile wasn’t my favorite, the shower let water run into the rest of the bathroom, and the bench inside the shower wasn’t very nice. But the updates changed all of that.
The bathroom is no longer split. There are two doors to close, which can be a little awkward, but there were easy to slide. The toilet is a good height and there are grab bars along the wall. The roll under sink was really nice. There isn’t a lot of counter space but there is a cubby with towels that you can remove and use.
And I could use the mirror! Which seems like a minor thing to be excited about but it’s not the case in every bathroom. Even the accessible rooms. There is also a make up mirror that you can use.
The shower is really nice. There is now as little rubber bumper that keeps the water from getting out into the rest of the bathroom. You’ll need to roll over it but it wasn’t hard. There is enough space in the shower to roll into it and then transfer to the bench. You can then either just leave your chair there or roll it back outside a bit.
The new shower benches are really nice and were at a good height. If the shower head is too high you’ll just need someone to lower it for you. There is also a low shelf for you to place your shower products. Coronado Springs has also moved to larger containers in the shower with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. No more small samples.
We loved the updated 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.
