About Coronado Springs Resort
ICIP 2012 will be held at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort, located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, a suburb of Orlando. Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is a Southwest-themed Disney resort hotel encircling Lago Dorado—a glimmering 22-acre lake—that evokes the spirit and romance of Spanish-colonial Mexico.
Follow in the footsteps of explorer Don Francisco de Coronado, a 16th century Spanish explorer, who set sail for the New World in 1540. He was 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.
From the welcoming spring-fed Fountain of the Doves to the hidden treasures of the Mayan-ruin themed Dig Site pool, escape to a tranquil lakeside vacation destination where relaxation is your reward. A serene atmosphere infuses the guest rooms, conference facilities, shops, restaurants and cantinas, inspired by faraway places where time goes by just a little bit slower than usual.
As you explore the resort you'll discover a variety of dining options, including quick snacks, and La Tienda (the shop) where you can pick up essentials.
Maya Grill: (Price Range $15 to $36 per person). Decorated with Mayan motifs, this warm and inviting restaurant pairs American fare with exciting Latin flavors.
Café Rix: (Price Range $15 and under). Grab a quick bite; select from fresh salads, panini sandwiches and freshly baked goods.
Pepper Market: (Price Range $15 and under). Find rotisserie chicken, pasta, salads, burgers, Mexican and other ethnic selections in this food court designed as a charming open-air market.
Laguna Bar: (Price Range $15 and under). This breezy, outdoor lakeside lounge is perfect for unwinding, imbibing your favorite drinks or sampling new ones.
After lunch or dinner, indulge yourself at the full-service salon or get energized by kayaking on the lake or playing a game of sand volleyball.
Want to unwind after a busy day of conference sessions? The 22-person hot tub is one of the largest at any Walt Disney World resort hotel. Between dips you can stroll down the nature trail or grab a poolside drink at Siestas Cantina.
