When Walt Disney World announced they were opening Toledo, a tapas style restaurant at Gran Destino Tower in Coronado Springs, we were beyond excited to try it. Who doesn’t love tiny foods, right?! So during our stay there we decided it was the perfect time to try this new restaurant. Toledo is located on the top floor of Gran Destino Tower and boasts a 1930’s Spanish flair.
Initially we were pretty apprehensive about Coronado Springs putting up a new high rise tower on Coronado Springs property but we have to admit, we ended up loving the actual tower itself and love all that it brings to the table when it comes to food, design and atmosphere. When we stayed at Gran Destino Tower, we fell in love with this resort and are hoping to make it back soon.
The food that we’ve tried so far has all exceeded our expectations, and Toledo is no exception. The menu at Toledo consists of tapas style plates as well as a full drink menu, full sized entrees and desserts. You can make this meal as large or as small as you’d like and we love it for a variety of occasions. It is located right across from Dahlia Lounge, so feel free to pop over while you’re waiting to grab a drink or just take in the views from their balcony.
Atmosphere at Toledo at Walt Disney World
The atmosphere at Toledo is elegant yet casual. The restaurant has some beautiful views since it is located on the top floor. While it doesn’t scream kid friendly, we definitely saw plenty of families enjoying themselves while we were there.
It’s clean and modern, but not lacking character. Overall, we love this for families, girls trips, date nights, or just a casual meal out with friends.
Food at Toledo
The menu at Toledo is pretty extensive and ranges from seafood to steak to charcuterie boards, desserts and salads. We were really impressed with the variety available at Toldeo, and felt there was pretty much something for everyone. Even the kids menu has a pretty good variety of items to choose from and we were surprised to see the kids menu stray a bit from what we are used to seeing at Walt Disney World restaurants.
For starters, we got the Olive Oil-poached Tuna with lemon and the Spanish Potato Omelet. Both were flavorful and delicious. These were the tapas style items, so portions were tiny, but we could have eaten more of each.
Because we were intrigued, we got the Savory Churros, which were, well, interesting. They weren’t necessarily bad, but maybe just not necessary? They kind of reminded me of flavorless breadsticks, with a slightly different texture. But they had a lovely sauce, which really helped lift them up a bit. On their own, they were just a bit boring.
Because we are Italian and we do love our bread, we also had to try the Pan Con Tomate, which we are happy to report was much better than savory churros. Almost like a bruschetta, this bread was flavorful and delicious and definitely shareable.
The marinated Hanger steak was what I had ordered for my entrée, and it was one of the best steaks I’ve had on property to date. Perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked, this did not disappoint.
For our desserts we chose The Tapas Bar and “Café Con Leche” Choux both of which are delicious and would highly recommend getting, especially if you’re a chocolate lover. I was told there’s no bad desserts at this restaurant, so maybe we will have to go back at some point and try the rest. I mean, we have to research of course.
Prices at Toledo at Walt Disney World
The prices at Toledo vary all over the price depending on what you order. Feeling like you just want to feast on tapas? They will run you about $3-4 a plate and are small and basically serve one. Appetizers are $10-$12, all sides are $8, and entrees will run you from $28-$34. Desserts are $12 and under. And they do honor DVC and annual passholder discounts here too.
So basically, you can choose how much you want to spend based on what kind of meal you are looking for. We actually kind of love that, because sometimes we have found that we have a bit smaller of an appetite and like the option of being able to just order smaller plates on those occasions.
Is it worth making the trip to Coronado Springs for Toledo?
We absolutely think this is worth the trip to Coronado Springs. Gran Destino Tower itself is beautifully designed, and we think anyone who has the time should try to make it out there if they can. If you have a reason like a dining reservation, that makes it even easier to justify. Toldeo isn’t really like any other restaurant on Walt Disney World property at this point, both in theming and in food quality, so we think this should definitely make the list and feel its well worth the trip.
You can take the buses from any Park to Coronado Springs, or you can always hire a Minnie Van or Uber to get you there a well.
Is Toledo at Walt Disney World Budget Friendly?
Again, this is something that you can completely control and we love that. If you want a more budget friendly meal, feel free to grab a few tapas, appetizers or sides. You could easily create a small meal with all of the options provided without breaking the bank.
Does Toledo take the dining plan?
Yes! Toldeo takes the Disney Dining Plan and the Deluxe Disney Dining Plan and currently requires just 1 dining credit. We think this a great use of a dining credit, especially if you decide to get one of the pricier entrees and an alcoholic beverage. For more information on the Disney Dining Plan, see our post here.
Overall, we love this new restaurant and we will be adding it to our own must do lists. Between the atmosphere, the delicious food, outstanding service and variety of choices, we really don’t think you can go wrong here!
