BREAKING: New Magic Kingdom Area Resort to be Named “Reflections: A Disney Lakeside Resort”

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

Bob Chapek unveiled details about a new resort,  “Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge” at Destination D today.

This will be a new deluxe, nature-inspired resort coming to Walt Disney World that will feature more than 900 hotel rooms and proposed Disney Vacation Club villas. This resort will be built on the site of the former River Country water park on the shore of Bay Lake adjacent to Fort Wilderness.

In October, we heard news of a survey coming out for “Disney Disovery Lodge” when the idea was still in the works.

Terri Schultz, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Vacation Club, said in 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.”

any of my now all too frequent comments about the destruction of creativity and wow factor going on at WDW. It’s a shame. These places are like going on vacation in suburban Raliegh.

I know they already have the perfect “wilderness” hotel theme with Wilderness Lodge, but come on! This is a hotel that could be in any city in the world. Lazy!

What an awful name, it sounds like a bad retirement community. And most important of all it lacks theming, like most of Disney’s new resort buildings and room refurbs.

We’ve gone from the amazing concept and theming of Buffalo Junction to a generic Springhill Suites vibe. Lame!

I stay at Fort Wilderness campground when vacationing at WDW. We try to stay in the 700 loop which has nothing but woods at the back of many sites for half of the loop. It has been a very peaceful place to escape to after a very busy day at the parks. I’m worried that the natural area I am talking about will be replaced with another parking lot. Disney claims that this will be a nature inspired resort but can see that a lot of nature will be removed in order to construct this resort.
