NEW Disney World Restaurant Details — Villa Del Lago!

Lots and LOTS of changes are taking place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort! Though the current construction of a tower — which will bring 500 additional guest rooms and rooftop dining to the Resort — will deliver the biggest transformation, there are other subtle and not-so-subtle changes taking place, too.

One of those not-so-subtle changes is the addition of an on-the-water lounge, which guests will be able to visit by way of a series of bridges from various areas of the Resort. And now, this upcoming bar and grill has a name: Villa del Lago! [Read more…]

Review: Rix Sports Bar & Grill in Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Welcome to the “new” Rix Sports Bar & Grill in Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort!

So, why is the “new” in quotes, you may ask? Well, that’s because for a long time, this particular space in Coronado Springs operated as Rix Lounge, providing guests and convention attendees at the Resort a place to drink and… well, lounge. The name changed to Rix Sports Bar & Grill a few months ago. However, it’s only recently that the location has transitioned to a full Table Service Restaurant serving both lunch and dinner, as well as serving up a place to catch a game or two.

And it makes sense. You see, Coronado Springs Resort is in the midst of a pretty major transition which — among other changes — will ultimately add 500 rooms to the Resort by way of a brand new tower (which will also feature rooftop dining). And with room for MANY more guests on the way, more dining options will be required, too.

So we’re here to check out the changes while trying out lunch at Rix Sports Bar & Grill!

Atmosphere

If you’ve ever visited Rix Lounge, you’ll recognize the unique entrance, which remains the same tall structure, but with a change.

It now says Rix Sports Bar & Grill, of course!

LOTS of changes are in store (and some are already in progress) at Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort. If you tuned into the DFB last week, you may have seen the in-progress pics of the construction of the tower that will add 500 rooms to the already expansive Resort.

We know that the addition of the tower will also deliver a rooftop dining experience to the Resort, complete with fireworks viewing!

And we’re also intrigued by the waterfront (or perhaps better said as on-the-water) dining option on the way, though less is known about it.

It’s hot in central Florida, and it isn’t cooling off any time soon. So you’ll want to keep your cool by sipping on a Strawberry Lemonade with an optional shot of Bacardi Dragon Berry Rum. We found this at the popcorn cart to the left of the Chinese Theater.

Changes Coming to Rix Sports Bar & Grill at Coronado Springs Resort!

There are all sorts of changes in store for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This Moderate Resort is currently undergoing a massive renovation which will ultimately result in a new fifteen-story tower featuring rooftop dining complete with fireworks viewing,  500 new resort rooms, refurbishments to current rooms, and a new Concierge Club-Level Lounge.

Now, most of these changes will not be complete until 2019. But one of the changes to this Resort is coming much sooner!

Rix Lounge has long been a spot for guests at Coronado Springs to grab a drink and relax after a day of vacation fun (or attending a conference, in the case of convention visitors), though more recently the name changed to Rix Sports Bar & Grill.
