Multiple online sources are sharing news that a new hotel may be coming to Walt Disney World!
Rumors of a Main Gate hotel for Epcot have fans excited – especially the most prominent rumors of another monorail hotel, this time on the Epcot loop! The most popular location for this resort has it placed so that it would be able to use the current Epcot monorail station, providing transportation for resort guests to Magic Kingdom.
Disney has already announced a huge re-imagining of Epcot, including the Main Gate area and a large portion of Future World. So it certainly doesn’t seem out of the question that a resort addition could be coming.
There is even talk of this resort having an entrance to the park for guests and/or serving as an entryway for everyone entering the park – similar to how guests entering Disneyland Park pass under the Disneyland Hotel in Paris.
Another rumor has the new resort off to the side of the entrance – with a western location (near The Seas aquarium) the more popular side. That location would, most likely give guests a fantastic view of World Showcase Lagoon and any nighttime entertainment that happens there.
At this point theming rumors are slim, with very little detail on the actual resort being tossed around. It is assumed that any resort built would also have a Disney Vacation Club wing or section.
I don’t know about you, but I would LOVE to see a Main Gate Epcot resort and really hope this become a reality! I love being able to walk from the deluxe resorts in the Epcot area to the park, but think it would be awesome to enter through the Main Gate with the iconic view of Spaceship Earth!
