Major Expansions Planned at Disney World

1 Mar

Hot off the presses, from Reuters.com:

Walt Disney Co. on Thursday said it was planning two major expansions to its Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, including a 900-acre luxury resort and a commercial district outside the gateway entrance.

The new commercial district doesn’t come as any surprise; rumors has it that this will be a discount shopping district, to compete with all those Orlando outlet malls. But I for one hadn’t heard about the new resort, which reportedly will be anchored by a Four Seasons Hotel. More details are available from Earthtimes and Florida Today.

In related news, Hotel and Motel Management Week in Review has info about a new luxury condo at Celebration, which broke ground last year and is scheduled to open this September:

The 240-unit Mona Lisa at Celebration is located on 12 tropically landscaped acres, just five miles south of Walt Disney World at the intersection of Interstate 4 and U.S. Highway 192. When complete, the four-star, luxury condo hotel will feature 93 one- and 147 two-bedroom units ranging in size from 704 to 1,267 square feet. The suites will be fully furnished and feature 9-foot ceilings; stainless steel appliances and solid-surface counter tops in the full-size kitchens; solid surface vanities and ceramic tile in the bathrooms; bedrooms with luxury linens and king-size beds; queen-size sleeper sofas and LCD flat screen TVs in the living rooms; and furnished balconies on every suite.
