There’s a new rumor circulating about the status of a future Disney Vacation Club property. The current concern is that Disney may have quietly canceled the construction of Reflections — A Disney Lakeside Lodge.
The rumor began when some local Disney fans noticed grass seed arriving to the site. They also claim to have seen concrete and rebar being removed from the work site. Grass is typically added at the end of the construction and not during the middle of a construction project. It is also rather unusual if concrete and rebar are indeed removed. The DVC Lodge was currently in mid-construction earlier this year, so there’s question if the plans changed due to COVID-19. It would be surprising if the economic effects of the pandemic resulted in the cancellation of a DVC property. For now it’s just a rumor though.
For those looking to learn more about the plans for Reflections— A Disney Lakeside Lodge, the deluxe resort will house more than 900 rooms including DVC villas. It is currently being constructed on the former site of Disney’s River Country. Disney’s River Country was the very first waterpark at Walt Disney World. River Country opened in 1976 and closed permanently in 2005.
This hotel will be in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area which leads us to believe you will be able to utilize boat transportation to and from the Magic Kingdom when staying at this resort. It was originally stated that the anticipated completion date for the resort is 2022.
The new resort will be nature-inspired and nestled in between the Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. Terri Schultz, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Disney Vacation Club, stated, “ This resort experience will be a celebration of Walt Disney’s lifelong love and respect for nature, with some fun and even surprising accommodation types that families will find irresistible.”
