Looking to book a club level room at Disney’s Coronado Springs Gran Destino Tower and wondering what the Chronos Club vegan options are? We’ve got you covered.
For those not familiar with club level (aka concierge level) accommodations at Walt Disney World, let us explain.
Club level rooms can be purchased at a premium and carry with them certain perks. Perks include assistance in booking tickets, dining reservations, transportation, fastpasses, recreational activities, child care, and itinerary planning.
The biggest perk is access to the club level lounges. These lounges are staffed by Disney cast members and offer multiple food and beverage services throughout the day.
So much food is offered. Any time we’ve stayed in a club level room we’ve not had to book any additional dining as all of our needs have been met strictly in the lounge.
Almost all club level accommodations can be found at the Disney Deluxe Resorts. However, when Disney’s Coronado Springs (a moderate resort) opened its new Gran Destino Tower, we saw the very first concierge lounge at a non-Deluxe resort.
Chronos Club Vegan Options at Disney’s Coronado Springs Gran Destino Tower
The Chronos Club can be found on the 15th floor of the tower.
Upon arrival at the resort a cast member located in the tower lobby will verify your club level status and then lead you up to the lounge for private check in and complementary mimosas.
The views from the top of the tower are spectacular. Our room assignment was on the west side of the tower overlooking the lake. Off in the distance is the Magic Kingdom. We could actually see the fireworks over Cinderella Castle at night.
The Chronos Lounge faces the east and will offer you views of Epcot and the fireworks over Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The Chronos Club is well appointed with ample seating options throughout.
Food options can be found at three different stations, one of which is a hot station.
Beverages have their own station. Here you’ll find coffee and tea (with the cutest Mickey sugar cubes). There is also a refrigerator stocked with soda, juice, iced tea and bottled water.
Later in the day you’ll find the beverage area stocked with bottled beer. There is also pour-your-own wine available after the breakfast service and cordials offered during dessert service.
There were always six varieties of Spanish wine to choose from as well as one sparkling wine.

Chronos Club Vegan Options
Breakfast offerings are slim. Fresh Fruit is the only option on the buffet. However, the in house chef whipped me up a plate of vegan JUST scrambled egg every morning. They brought me out some special vegan bread which I toasted and then made myself eggs on toast with ketchup and of course…coffee.
The vegan light snacks consisted of crudités, hummus, olives, house made chips, bulgar wheat salad and KIND bars. There were also sun butter and banana crostini with agave drizzle.
Our stay at Gran Destino encompassed two nights. On the first night, the vegan options included Pan con Tomate. The same Pan con Tomate served upstairs in the Toledo Tapas and Steakhouse restaurant. Also from the restaurant we found the couscous salad (served with the vegan seafood platter) topped with Marcona almonds.
But the real stand out for me were the jackfruit quesadillas. I ate so many of them, I lost count.
During the second evening the option on the hot bar was a vegan crab cake. This crab cake is (you guessed it) from the vegan seafood platter served at Toledo on the 16th floor.
Also available were grilled vegetables, toast with olive oil and hummus.
After dinner, head into your room with an adult beverage to take in the sunset.
The Chronos Lounge offers board games for guests to use. My husband and I enjoyed a round of Scrabble in the lounge while waiting for the dessert service to start.
And while there weren’t any vegan as-is options on the lounge’s dessert spread, a cast member did offer me a vegan Chocolate Avocado Pudding nightly. This is is the same pudding that can be found at the resort’s Three Bridges Bar & Grill at Villa Del Lago restaurant.
Club benefits start the morning of your check in day and extend through the end of the day you check out. To take full advantage of what you’re paying for, arrive at the resort early and take advantage of the breakfast service.
On departure day, resort check out is at 11:00 am, however you have access to the Chronos Lounge all day and can return any time until the lounge officially closes at 10:00 pm.
Our most recent stay was two nights. So, basically we had three full days of complementary food and beverage utilizing this method.
If you’re wondering if the services available at Chronos Club warrants the price tag, we would say yes. Treat yo’ self!
