Today, we say happy 18th birthday to Coronado Springs Resort. It opened on August 1, 1997. This is one of my favorite Disney resorts for many reasons. First off, it is a great place to go for a walk. There is a pathway that takes you all the way around the lake at the center of the property. Secondly, it has one of the better food courts, especially if you like Mexican. Finally, there are great spots to relax. This photo, taken earlier this year, shows one of my favorite places to take a break.
