This week Disney has announced a potential new resort named “Disney’s Discovery Lodge”. This hotel is expected to be built on the former River Country site between Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.
This new resort is expected to be open by 2022 and will feature 900 rooms and Disney Vacation Club villas.
Terri Schultz, senior vice president and general manager of Disney Vacation Club, released a statement: “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. It will give our members and guests yet another opportunity to stay in close proximity to all the newest attractions and experiences in our theme parks, and with the flexibility, value and world-class service families expect from Disney.”
