We just returned home from Disney over the weekend. One day we were riding the bus (we were the only ones on there) and I commented about all of the construction they were doing. Our driver said that they were going to be tearing down the Coronado, too. I’ve never stayed there before, but always thought it was a beautiful resort. Has anyone else heard this, or have an idea of why they might be tearing it down?
"g" just becuase a menu is getting upgrades does not mean it will never shut down. Ooh, so they are substituting a hot dog with a hot dog and cheese… ok, so I guess that means it’s set in stone that CSR will never close. In addition to that, the restaurants at CSR are owned by an outside company, which is why they offer differnt foods and prices on items at that resort. And as for the cast member staying there in the spring… big deal. The driver said they were GOING TO BE tearing it down not that that theyARE ALREADY tearing it down.
This is the first I’m hearing about this. I get info on Walt Disney World from many reliable sources every day, but this is a new one. I’m not saying it’s not true though. You heard it from a Cast Member, and I am no longer a Cast Member, so he’d have more inside info than I would.
It’s unfortunate if it’s true, though it isn’t my favorite WDW resort at all. I have stayed there more than once. While I enjoyed my time there, the resort never was able to give me that "Disney Feel" if you know what I mean.
CSR is also Disney’s only moderately priced convention hotel, (The Contemporary is a more expensive convention hotel) and thousands of conventioneers use it all the time. If this rumor is true, Disney must have another option to accommodate this type of traveler.
