The Maya Grill is Coronado Spring's upscale table service restaurant that brings Mexican and Central American style accents to more accessible American cuisine.
The divided, (but large) dining area blends some old world Mayan motifs such as fire, sun, and water, with more modern design element in the lighting, table and seating designs. The restaurant looks a little different depending on where you sit, and there are not too many "bad" seats. While dinner does begin at 5pm, we like the look that the Maya Grill takes on after dark, which in the summer can be somewhat later than most guest like to eat.
The crowd patterns here are also a little different that at other Disney resort restaurants. Coronado Springs often plays host to business and convention guests, and they have "planned" events to go to in the evening. If you're getting the feeling that other restaurants in the parks are packed solid, you might want to check out Maya Grill. More times than not, they have available tables and time slots, and can even occasionally accept walk-ups.
While the cuisine is American-Mayan, (as opposed to actual, pure Mayan), it strikes a good balance for a majority of guests. In fact, thinking of it as refined Tex-Mex, is probably a closer description.
