The expansion will add 545 guests rooms, including 50 suites to the resort. The new tower will be the centerpiece of the resort and will include a new two-story lobby that guests will see as they first enter the resort, plus a restaurant on the top floor that is sure to have spectacular views of Walt Disney World.
In addition to the 545 new rooms, the existing 1,800 rooms are getting a refresh as well, with new fixtures, furnishings, and lighting.
A new restaurant is also coming to an island the middle of Lago Dorado, the resort’s 14-acre lake. New walkways will allow guests to cross that lake, making getting around the resort easier, plus a new color palette will unify the new and the existing areas.
An exact opening date for the new tower and eateries has not been announced.
