Coming in 2022 Walt Disney World will be welcoming families to an all new resort located along the shoreline of Bay Lake between Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. The great thing about this all new resort is it will actually be a deluxe resort that will welcome not only the Disney Vacation Club members, but will include more than 900 hotel rooms for guests. The Disney Vacation Club villas spread will be spread across a variety of unique accommodation types.
Although this resort has yet to be named, this resort is being built in effort to complement the natural surroundings.
