Nature-themed resort will be built at Walt Disney World
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Walt Disney World says it's going to build a new nature-themed resort.
The Florida-based theme park resort said Thursday that the as-yet-unnamed resort will open in 2022 where the former River Country water park was once located. It will have 900 hotel rooms as well as villas for Disney's timeshare program.
The new project joins three other resort construction projects underway at Disney World. The 27,000-acre tourist destination already has 36 resorts on its property, as well as four theme parks.
