Back in March Disney announced its intention to create a value-oriented retail / lodging complex near the new Western Way access road from State Route 429. Recently additional details about this project have been revealed...including its name: Flamingo Crossings.
A few weeks ago we reported on changes to the waitlist process for DVC reservations. Effective immediately all waitlist requests are automatically booked when the accommodation becomes available. Additionally, any other pending waitlist requests will be cancelled. (Previously members could opt to have a DVC representative contact them via telephone to confirm or decline the new accommodation, and all other waitlist requests would remain in force.)
This past Thursday Hilton executives were in Central Florida to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for their new 1500 room facility which will operate under both the Waldorf-Astoria and Hilton names. The facility is being constructed adjacent to Fairfield’s Bonnet Creek timeshare, just south of Walt Disney World.
This week Disney announced two new projects for Walt Disney World, one of which would seem to put to rest any possibility of reviving the Eagle Pines DVC resort project. In partnership with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Disney will reconfigure the land which is currently home to the Eagle Pines and Osprey Ridge golf courses into a “luxury resort and golf community.” The two golf courses will be combined into a single 18-hole championship course, while additional land will be used to construct a luxury hotel plus what is described as “single- and multi-family vacation homes and fractional ownership vacation homes.”
