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.
Like pretty much all Disney World lounges, it’s never required an Advance Dining Reservation, and Rix typically opened at 5:00 pm for evening guests. (Note that this is not to be confused with Cafe Rix, which is a grab-and-go and coffee location at the Resort.)
But coming this June, it appears that Rix will see some big changes! Rix Sports Bar & Grill will not only be open daily for lunch as well as dinner, but it will also accept Advance Dining Reservations, as seen on the Disney World website!
Options to make a reservation for Rix Sports Bar & Grill (as well as an 11:00 AM opening for lunch time) present themselves on the Disney World website for dates starting June 2, 2018.
However, it seems the system is not entirely loaded, as we’ve been unable to make an actual reservation (as of press time) without receiving an error message.
Still, changes are clearly in store, and we’ll be keeping you updated on this story as it unfolds!
