Coronado Springs Resort Facts and Fun

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort was named for Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, a 16th-century Spanish explorer. In 1540, he set sail for the New World in search of the Seven Cities of Cibola and their fabled riches of gold. He never found the legendary riches, but members of his group became the first Europeans to reach the Grand Canyon.

Increase your Spanish vocabulary! La Fuente de las Palomas translates to "Fountain of the Doves"; Lago Dorado means "Lake of Gold"; el sol is the sun; a casita is a little house; a tienda is a store; and an arroyo is a stream.

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort opened on August 1, 1997.
