We previously reported that there were rumors of a new Marriott resort coming to the Disney World area. Well, looks like that rumor might be coming true with word of plans filed for the a new JW Marriott on the corner of Epcot Center Drive and I-4 on Monday. Kimley Horn, a planning and engineering firm, filed the application on behalf of DCS Investments who purchased the land in 2012.
Plans call for a 16-story hotel with 516 rooms. The plans also state that there will be 50,000 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop bar, and signature restaurant.
This will be the second JW Marriott in the Orlando area. Their other hotel, JW Marriott Grande Lakes offers around 1,000 hotel rooms making it one of the largest hotels in the area.
Once official announcement is made by Marriott and more details are released, we will let you know.
