Disney has today named the new 15 story tower under construction at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort - Gran Destino Tower.

The tower, which will be completed in July 2019, will serve as the new main entrance point for guests visiting the resort, and will add a total of 545 new guest rooms (including 50 suites) to the resort, as well as feature a two-story lobby. A themed table-service restaurant is also planned for the top of Gran Destino Tower, offering views of the Walt Disney World Resort.

Reservations will begin soon.

Burger at brown derby? Did you do “cover the eyes and stab” on that order? 😂

Holy hell they're incredible. I need to think a bit, but probably the best burger I've had at Walt Disney World. Beats Brown Derby for sure. I really like the New England burger at Ale & Compass too.

Holy hell it's good or Holy hell it's really bad?

Holy hell the burger and churros at Three Bridges...

We thought Toledo was pretty good; love the small plates concept. The service was just okay, but it had recently opened when we visited.

How come you’re stalking the mods, dude?? …membership is magical 😎

I'll take "predictable and decent" over "aggressively horrible."

Three Bridges needs some walls and air conditioning. Open air is an absurd design choice for this climate.

Here, just in case anyone is as happy about this as I am. Reopens for evening/night hours starting Thursday!

…they’re on my list. Don’t find myself around Coronado too much but I’ll get there…as I have covered springs now (I think?)

You’re missing the point. Likely intentionally. And like I said, clearly you have not dined at either Toledo or Three Bridges.

SirwalterraleighSep 05, 2021

Key word “prefer” is this the part where we try to build the case that they didn’t intentionally gut their dining quality with that stupid dining plan? …if so…gonna need more coffee ☕️ now If the concept is they need a new vendor…that’s totally valid. Just don’t think Disney is straight out of the Sorbonne these days.

Clearly you’ve never dined at Three Bridges or Toledo. Not saying there aren’t better run restaurants and kitchens out there, but what Disney offers is generally far and away above what is offered by Palmas Services. and unless you dine exclusively at chef run individually owned and operated establishments it’s hard to avoid “bulk ordering of ingredients over taste.”

Wait…I know Coronado has always had sketchy food… but Disney is being called on as a “savior” here?!? I’d prefer my food not be supplied by those placing bulk ordering of ingredients over taste…but that’s just a general rule…
