The Walt Disney World Resort recently announced their plans for a new hotel in the Bay Lake resort area. The hotel will be located between Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. The resort will be nature-inspired to fit in with the surroundings and other resorts on Bay Lake.

The new resort will be added to the lineup of Disney Vacation Club resorts with 900 hotel rooms and DVC villas. This resort is one of many announced projects coming soon to the Walt Disney World Resort. In total, these projects will add about 1,700 hotel rooms and villas to Walt Disney World. See here for updates on the on-going projects at the Swan and Dolphin Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The President of the Walt Disney World Resort, George A. Kalogridis, stated “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.”
The Senior VP and General Manager of DVC, Terri Schultz, stated “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. 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.”
We are still waiting on further details concerning the exact location, pricing and the name of the resort.
