“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 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.”
This will be the 16th upcoming Disney Vacation Club property that is yet-to-be-named resort in bringing more flexibility towards the DVC Membership.
