The new resort will include more than 900 hotel rooms.
The project joins three other resorts that are already underway at Walt Disney World, bringing more than 1,700 new rooms over the next four years. There will be proposed Disney Vacation Club villas spread across a variety of unique accommodation types.
“Walt Disney World is in the midst of our most significant expansion in the last two decades and the combined 1,700 new hotel rooms and proposed Disney Vacation Club villas we are building at four different resorts will create thousands of new construction and permanent jobs and will drive economic opportunity and incremental revenue for Central Florida,” said George A. Kalogridis, president of Walt Disney World Resort. “We continue to add new attractions, new lands – and these beautiful accommodations will be right in the heart of all that magic.”
The resort, which has not yet been named, is going to be the 16th Disney Vacation Club property.
