Disney is on a construction fever lately! They are currently in the process of adding a major new tower to Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, building the brand new Disney Riviera Resort and now they just announced another Deluxe Villa DVC resort! Check out more details about the new resort after the jump.
The new resort will have a “nature inspired” theme and be built along Bay Lake between Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campgrounds & Cabins. This area is the home to the old River Country water park. The resort will feature over 900 rooms/Disney Vacation Club Villas. Disney has not announced the name for this new resort.
While I’m excited to see another resort coming to Walt Disney World, the concept art released of these new resorts has a very plain feeling. There isn’t anything uniquely Disney about them. Simply saying that there is a “nature” theme doesn’t cut it when the Wilderness Lodge is right next door. I understand that Disney is trying to attract more guests with these Deluxe resorts but there’s no reason why they can’t have a superior theme as well. The other Magic Kingdom Deluxe resorts do an amazing job of themeing. Hopefully the real product will be much better than these renderings!
