Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is a large, beautiful property. The only convention hotel in the moderate category, it offers many great amenities. Today, I am focusing on the feature pool which is really a deluxe pool at a moderate price.
The entire resort pool area is called the “Dig Site.” It is a large area with a number of offerings. The main pool is the Lost City of Cibola pool and is themed after Mayan ruins. The centerpiece of the pool is a giant Mayan pyramid with a waterfall coming down the front. The pool also features a 123-ft waterslide. You can spend hours sitting and watching the kids have fun in this pool.
The pool is surrounded by many lounge chairs and a few umbrellas. There are lifeguards on duty. For extra protection for the little ones, there are also life jackets available to borrow. The life vests and towels are available right next to the pool and are complimentary.
Next to the Lost City of Cibola pool is a kiddie pool for younger children. The Dig Site also boasts the largest hot tub at Walt Disney World.
For guests who might not be looking to take the plunge that day, there are several non-water activities available at the Dig Site. These include a beach volleyball court as well as Iguana Arcade for the kids. Children ages 2-12 can also play at the Explorer’s Playground which is themed as an archaeological dig.
In the evenings, the Dig Site hosts a campfire to roast marshmallows as well as presenting Movies Under the Stars, where families can watch a favorite Disney film on the big screen from lounge chairs or even from within the pool.
If you get hungry or thirsty, there’s no need to leave the Dig Site, as there is a large open-air restaurant, Siestas Pool Bar & Grill onsite. You’ll find usual poolside dining fare: nachos, burgers, chicken fingers and more. There is also ping pong with paddles provided complimentary for short-term use.
Like the other Disney resort pools, this pool is heated.
The pool hours are 9:00 AM – 10:00 PM.
Here is a short video of the Dig Site.
