“Western Way” Road To Be Extended Beyond Flamingo Crossings

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Walt Disney World, through its governing body, the Reedy Creek Improvement District (RCID), has recently filed plans with the South Florida Water Management District to extend Western Way an additional 1.6 miles westward beyond SR 429 and the Flamingo Crossings development, to connect to Avalon Road, also known as SR 545.

This Google Maps image shows the current western terminus of Western Way at Flagler Avenue and the two completed hotels.

Only two hotel projects are completed at Flamingo Crossings at this time, a SpringHill Suites and a TownePlace Suites.  Western Way would be extended to connect with SR 545, thus making a significant chunk of land ripe for development west of Flamingo Crossings.

The Western Way extension project would cut through 1.6 miles of mostly wetlands.
In this aerial image, the entire length of Western Way, from SR 429 to Buena Vista Drive, is visible.

In case you’re not familiar with the Western Way entrance to WDW property, the roadway connects to Buena Vista Drive just south of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
