Disney has announced a new nature-inspired resort project to join 3 other projects that are already underway at Walt Disney Resort. With this, the total number of new hotel rooms and vacation club villas that will become active in the next 4 years has increased to 1700. The mixed-se resort is set to open in 2022, between Disney's wilderness lodge and the Fort wilderness resort and campground. The not-yet-named project, which is Disney’s 16th vacation club property, will include over 900 hotel rooms and Disney vacation club villas of a unique variety of 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."
"This resort experience will be a celebration of Walt Disney's lifelong love and respect for nature, with some fun and even surprising accommodation types that families will find irresistible," said Terri Schultz, senior vice president, and general manager of Disney Vacation Club. "It will give our members and guests yet another opportunity to stay in close proximity to all the newest attractions and experiences in our theme parks, and with the flexibility, value and world-class service families expect from Disney."
