Is a New Resort Coming to Walt Disney World?


It is I, Anonymouse, back with some interesting resort gossip coming out of Walt Disney World. Orlando Theme Park News is reporting that a new resort MAY be coming to the Swan and Dolphin area at Walt Disney World.

While the Swan and Dolphin are not Disney-owned properties, they are located in a prime location on Disney World property. Marriott is the owner of both resorts and it appears they will also be the owner of the new rumored resort.

Back in January, height balloons were spotted in the area around the tennis courts of the Swan and Dolphin hotels. This is the rumored location of where this new resort will be built. Due to the size of this area, only a smaller or “boutique” hotel would be built. Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course is right across the street from this location we would expect that minor modifications would have to be made to it.

Here is an aerial shot of the location of where the new resort would be located (from Google Maps):


As always, nothing is official until it is confirmed by Disney. This is certainly one to keep an eye on though.

As we previously reported, there is also a rumor circulating for Disney to be building a new Star Wars-themed Resort!
