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!

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

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.
