Are you planning a trip to Disney World and need to stick to a budget? Coronado Springs Resort is a great choice. 

If so you are probably looking into the “moderate” hotels that Disney has to offer and wondering which Disney hotel would best suit your family without blowing your budget. Currently, our favorite moderate hotel at Disney World is the Coronado Springs resort. Granted it’s the only moderate hotel Disney has that I’ve ever stayed at so…….keep that in mind.

The Coronado Springs Resort is a sprawling property near the Animal Kingdom. My family and I stayed here recently while I attend a conference. The resort is quite beautiful and kept up nicely considering the age of the hotel. We stayed in a standard room, which I think resembles most of the rooms on the property. The room had two queen beds, a bathroom with a bathtub, tv, dresser, and desk. The room was not oversized, but still comfortable. Coronado Springs Room

In my opinion, the rooms would not necessarily be the reason you decided to stay here. It would be the fact that you still get to stay on Walt Disney World property with all the perks that entail for a lower cost. Some of the best perks are:

  • The Magical Express takes you to and from the airport for free.
  • The Disney buses will take you to anywhere you would like to be on Walt Disney World property.
  • Lifeguards on duty at the main pool.
  • Onsite playground
  • Onsite arcade
  • Multiple restaurants and bars including Maya Grill and Rix Lounge, both of which have killer margaritas!
  • Beautiful views everywhere you look.
  • Lakeside hammocks
  • Multiple pools at this resort other than the main pool.

Disney World is getting ready to remodel this resort, so I will come back and update this after they do!

Get Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, there are a lot of things that can go wrong on any trip. Be prepared for the worst with travel insurance. We use Travelex or Safety Wing (often cheaper).

Book Flights

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner!

Book a Place to Stay

I recommend using or for most hotel bookings. I prefer to book directly with Marriott when I stay there because of their excellent military discount.

If you prefer staying in a vacation rental instead, I recommend VRBO.

Rent Clothes

Rent clothes for your trip with Travel Style Expert for only $50 a month! The first 30 days are free!

Choose Activities and Tours

To find great activities in any area I use Get Your Guide and Viator. If we are visiting a city with lots of popular attractions I always check CityPass and GoCard to see if they have discount cards available. Groupon also tends to have a lot of local travel deals.

When I want to book a full-on multi-day tour I use TourRadar. They’ve got fantastic weekly deals. If I am going somewhere in Mexico or the Caribbean I use Apple Vacations.

Rent a Car or Take a Lyft

More often than not Lyft is cheaper than Uber. Use my Lyft link for an $18 credit! For a car rental in any country, I recommend Hertz or Discover Cars.

Save Money on Gas

Upside, a free app gets you cash back on gas! Use promo code RV2Q2 to get an extra 15¢/gal bonus on your first purchase.

Get a Visa

I use iVisa to get all of my Visas.
