New Disney Resort & Much More

inline imageA new nature-inspired, mixed-use Disney resort will welcome families in 2022 along the picturesque shoreline of Bay Lake. Located between Disneys Wilderness Lodge and Disneys Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, this resort project joins three others underway at Walt Disney World Resort, bringing a total of more than 1,700 new hotel rooms and proposed Disney Vacation Club villas online over the next four years.

The deluxe resort, which will be themed to complement its natural surroundings, will include more than 900 hotel rooms and 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 soon-to-be named resort is slated to be Disneys 16th Disney Vacation Club property and it will continue to build on the value and flexibility of a Disney Vacation Club membership.

"This resort experience will be a celebration of Walt Disneys 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."

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort will debut completely reimagined in 2019, featuring a new 15-story tower overlooking Lago Dorado, the resorts centerpiece lake. Offering an additional 545 new guest rooms and suites, the tower also includes a two-level entrance lobby, concierge lounge, new meeting spaces and more. Guests will also be able to enjoy rooftop dining at a specialty table-service restaurant with panoramic views. The existing 1,800 guest rooms have all been fully updated with new fixtures, furnishings and a color palette that ties the entire resort together.

Also currently under construction near Epcot and anticipated to open in 2019 is Disneys Riviera Resort, the 15th Disney Vacation Club property. With plans for approximately 300 units across a variety of accommodation types, this much-anticipated property will connect to Disneys Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot via the Disney Skyliner. This new resort will be the first all-Disney Vacation Club property at Walt Disney World since Disneys Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa opened in 2004.

Seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, an immersive Star Wars-inspired destination will also be built at Walt Disney World Resort. This first-of-its-kind resort will be a completely immersive experience into an authentic Star Wars story as guests depart together for a multiday adventure aboard their starship. Guests will interact with characters as they become active citizens of the galaxy, dressed in proper attire as stories unfold all around them.

These resort projects join a flurry of expansion at Walt Disney World Resort, including the highly successful Pandora The World of Avatar at Disneys Animal Kingdom and the recent debut of Toy Story Land at Disneys Hollywood Studios. In early 2019, Walt Disney World will unveil a collection of shows, parties, Disney character interactions and more that will allow guests to cherish time with family and friends. And later in the year, guests will be able to travel to Star Wars: Galaxys Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where they can live out their own adventures in a galaxy far, far away. Guests will realize now more than ever is the perfect time to experience all of the fun and magic of a Walt Disney World vacation.

Wow, another hotel. Disney is expecting increased visitor numbers in the future then.

Although I hear the rumoured hotel at Epcots entrance has been shelved. I wonder why?

I wonder how the % of on-site vs. off-site guests has changed in the past few years. Certainly there's precious little room for more people physically inside some of their parks...

i wonder how many guests can fit in all the onsite hotels now.

I always used to think extra magic hours was great perk but nowadays the onsite guests have increased so much that it is not so much of a perk now.

Most busy day guides will not suggest a park if it has extra magic hours as its going to be so busy.


More resorts = more people = more standing in line and less enjoyment but hey ho lets pack em in and not worry too much about their enjoyment as its their dollars we want.


As a DVC member i am starting to consider whether its all worth it for the cost and decreasing enjoyment these days

Wonder when the construction work will start? We are staying at Wilderness Lodge next May and the proposed site looks as though it will be quite near.

if the site is on the old river country then it will be across the lake from the wilderness lodge which should not really affect it

Its an exciting time for wdw at the moment, no doubt.

As someone who is going to CSR next year, you have to ask yourselk what makes a delux hotel? My only conclusion is the only thing that may affect the rating is position. CSR looks like a delux, post completion, in all respects other than where it is.

The future looks good
