Walt Disney World may one day add a fifth theme park. But it wonâ€™t happen in the next five years.
At least, thatâ€™s according to projections by planners at the Reedy Creek Improvement District, the semi-autonomous government that oversees Disney World.
Reedy Creek is in the midst of updating its 10-year growth plan for state regulators, which includes â€œprojected maximumsâ€ in various categories. Reedy Creekâ€™s new projections show no major theme park being added between 2009 and 2013.
On the other hand, Reedy Creekâ€™s new maximums do allow for one major new theme park to be added during the following five years, through 2018. But Reedy Creek officials stress the projections are essentially long-term guess work and not based on Disneyâ€™s internal development plans. (Itâ€™s also worth noting that Reedy Creekâ€™s previous 10-year forecast, submitted in 1998, also allowed for a fifth theme park to be built; obviously, none ever was.)
The updated projections offer a few other interesting glimpses at how Disney World has grown over the last 10 years and how it might grow over the next 10.
