New Disney World hotel to open this year

by | 18 Jan 2022 | Hotel Projects, Projects

An Official Walt Disney World Hotel in the Sunshine State, which is currently under construction, has started accepting reservations from October 2022 onwards.

An ambitious hospitality scheme at one of Florida’s most famous tourist attractions is nearing completion.

A milestone opening

As building work progresses at pace, Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Disney Springs area has announced that it’s now accepting reservations from 27 October 2022 onwards. On opening, this property will become Drury Hotels’ first Official Walt Disney World Hotel and largest hotel to date.

Drawing on seven years in the hotel and hospitality industry, Tom Drury will serve as general manager, with John Branciforte as director of sales. On opening, the hotel will employ 150 full- and part-time staff members.

“We look forward to welcoming guests and providing them with a magical experience,” said Chuck Drury, CEO of Drury Hotels. “Our designation as an Official Walt Disney World Hotel means we have been entrusted to adhere to exceptional service standards. Given our track record of providing award-winning guest service, I know our team’s efforts will delight and impress our guests and visitors.”

The Walt Disney World experience

While the entire project – housing 604 rooms and more than 17,000 sq ft of event space – is expected to complete by spring 2023, only the first 264 rooms will be available in autumn 2022. Amenities being promised at this new hotel include a resort-style pool with splash pad and Lakeside Bar & Grill for poolside dining, a grab-and-go marketplace, a cosy dining venue, and 24-hour business and fitness centres.

The hotel, which can be booked as part of a Walt Disney World Resort package, will provide easy access to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks.
