Not only do Business Class Guests at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort enjoy upgraded amenities in their rooms, they also enjoy exclusive access to Coconino Cove!
Located on the ground floor of Cabana Building 9B, Coconino Cove provides Business Class Guests with complimentary access to food and drink between the hours of 7AM-10AM and 5PM-10PM. Guests must use their MagicBand to access the lounge.
DIStracted Tip: For Guests planning to stay in a standard room, upgrading to Business Class may not be worth the additional $90 per night. On the other hand, Guests planning to stay in a Water View or Preferred room may find the additional $47 and $17 nightly increase more affordable. (All additional costs are averages and just approximate).
The lounge itself is decorated in earth tones and accented with southwestern-style fabrics and decor. In addition to four small table and chair sets, there are a few sofas and chairs available. Guests also have access to a restroom.
Coconino Lounge features two large wall-mounted TVs. This isn’t a problem in and of itself, but the content varied from local news (which, let’s be honest is ALWAYS a downer), to Disney cartoons, to the movie Twister. Personal aside: I prefer to limit my exposure to the “real world” when I’m in the Disney bubble, so I found this feature annoying; business travelers may feel differently. I imagine if a Guest found the content upsetting or inappropriate, one of the two Cast Members on duty would change the channel.
Guests can expect the following options for breakfast:
- Hot tea
- Fruit–including berries, melons, apples, oranges and bananas
- Muffins, bagels, donuts and/or danishes
- Jams and/or jellies
- Peanut butter
Guests can expect the following selection of appetizers between 5PM-7PM:
- Antipasto meats
- Grilled veggies
Guests stopping by between 7PM-10PM will enjoy a selection of snacks including:
- Tortilla chips
- Potato chips
- Veggie chips
Wine, beer, soft drinks and sangria are complimentary throughout the evening service.
DIStracted Tip: If you don’t have time to hang out at Coconino Cove but want a quick drink, ask the Cast Members and they’ll give you a can of soda, or even a cup of beer, to go!
Coconino Cove gives Guests the ability to grab a quick bite without the hassle of navigating a crowded food court, plus it’s all rolled into the cost of the Business Class room! What do you think? Is it worth the extra cost to take advantage of this perk?
Stay tuned – I’ll have a review of a Business Level room next week!
