As part of the re-imagining of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, three new pedestrian bridges now extend across Lago Dorado, which allows for easy access to all parts of the resorts. In the middle of the lake at the nexus of these new pathways is Villa del Lago (“Lake Villa”), which is home to a new outdoor restaurant, Three Bridges Bar & Grill.
