It can feel like there are countless options when choosing your overnight accommodations for your Disney World vacation. You can stay on Disney World property at one of their dozens of resort hotels, or you can stay off property at a hotel or a vacation rental! Orlando is, after all, one of the top vacation destinations in the country, catering to all sorts of tourists with different budgets and preferences!
If you really want to live it up on your next Disney World vacation, then you may want to know about new luxury accommodations that are currently in the works!
Orlando Business Journal has reported that Orlando-based company Darton US Holdings Inc. has filed with the county to build a seven-story, 526-room luxury resort, as well as a conference center, parking garage, and 12 villas. If approved, the resort will be situated on 30 acres of land located close to Disney World on the opposite side of Interstate 4.
More details of this proposed project include approximately 12,000 square feet of office space, a nearly 2,800-square-foot retail space, and two restaurants. The hotel itself would include “a family pool and adult pool, a steakhouse restaurant, a spa, a fitness room, a children’s center, a greenhouse and more.”
While the resort’s cost was not included in this proposal, industry data estimates that the total project could cost approximately $1 billion, with around 40% of that amount dedicated to the hotel alone. The project’s timeline also was not given, but it was noted that this resort would be built in one phase.
We’ll keep an eye on any developments related to this new luxury resort and we will let you know if we learn about any new information! In the meantime, be sure to follow along for the latest Disney World new and updates.
