This blog will be the first in a series of Best Disney Secrets. Now, they might not be secrets in the traditional sense, but they’re experiences and places that many Disney guests don’t know exist. Are you ready to be “in the know?”
Coronado Springs, one of Disney World’s moderate resorts, has a class of rooms not found anywhere else on property- Business Class. These rooms come with a lot of perks and might be the perfect choice for your next stay!
Location, Location, Location! Coronado Springs is a beautiful resort, but it is also very spread out. Business class rooms are located in Casitas 9B, a premium location. This building is the closest to the main building that has most of the dining options and the main bus stop. But that’s not even the best perk!
The best perk of the Business Class rooms is the Coconino Lounge. It is open for continental breakfast in the morning from 7:00-10:00 AM. Then, it reopens for snacks, sodas, beer, wine, and sangria from 5:00-10:00 PM. Access to the lounge is limited to only Business Class guests who can use their Magic Band to enter, and there is no charge for the food or refreshments inside.
The lounge has different seating options for relaxing, watching television, and/or eating. The staff is fantastic and gets to know your likes and interests.
Breakfasts consists of juice, milk, cereal, coffee, a cappuccino machine, yogurt, granola, several types of cut fresh fruit, whole fruit, bagels, and a rotating assortment of pastries. If your a soda person like me, they are available on request at breakfast.
When the lounge reopens in the evening, various savory snacks are available such as: meats, cheeses, chips, salsa, hummus, veggies and more. Later in the night, giant cookies are served as a special treat. Kids will especially love those!
Evenings also bring an assortment of complementary beverages such as soda, a selection of beer and wine, and sangria.
I’ve probably given you enough reasons to see why Business Class rooms are special, but they also have extra perks inside the actual rooms. Bathrooms have more storage and include bathrobes. The mattresses are upgraded, and families will love in inclusion on a DVD player. Like standard rooms at Coronado Springs Resort, you have option of 2 queen beds or 1 king bed.
So is staying Business Class the right choice for your stay? They tend to run about $80 more than standard rooms and about $20 more than preferred rooms. If you will take advantage of the food offerings and/or having a few adult beverages at night, you will likely be very happy that you treated yourself. The experience is similar to the club level of deluxe resorts, but does not carry the same price tag. I think they perfect for those looking for an exclusive feel but are also budget minded.
