Disney have announced plans for a brand new nature-inspired resort, that is set to open in 2022. The new resort will be located along the shoreline of Bay Lake, in between Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.
The deluxe resort will be ideal for families, with more than 900 rooms and Disney Vacation Club villas available. There will be a wide range of accommodation types, to suit all guests and the theming will be inspired by nature, with the design complementing the resorts natural surroundings.
Terri Schultz (senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club) revealed that this exciting new resort 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”. While they haven’t revealed details of what the accommodation types will be, we’re expecting something pretty special!
The resort will put guests right in the middle of the theme park fun, offering the chance to be close to the parks and Disney’s newest attractions and experiences. Terri also promised that guests will see “the world-class service families expect from Disney”.
This new nature-themed resort will join three other resort projects that are already underway. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is currently undergoing a huge transformation and will be unveiled in 2019, with more rooms, a 15-storey tower overlooking Lago Dorado and a rooftop restaurant.
Construction has already begun on Disney’s Riviera Resort which is also set to open in 2019. One of the most exciting things about this hotel, is that it will connect guests to Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park and the International Gateway at Epcot, via the new Disney Skyliner cable car service!
The third hotel is probably the most highly anticipated of all and while it still doesn’t have an official name, it’s going to be entirely themed on Star Wars! The resort will be fully immersive offering a totally one-of-a-kind experience that will be seamlessly connected to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park. You’ll be able to interact with your favourite characters, dress in Star Wars attire and get an amazing view of space from the window in your room! There’s no official opening date yet, but we’re hoping it’s not too long after the exciting new Star Wars Land opens next year.
