Construction Imminent on New Hotel Tower Adjacent to Swan and Dolphin

We first brought you the rumors of a new hotel coming to the Swan and Dolphin complex in June 2017, and the rumors were confirmed a bit more than a year ago. Today a site work permit was filed, which indicates that construction could start very soon on this new hotel, set to open by 2020.

The new permit reveals some more detail about the construction phase. There will be two entrances from Epcot Resorts Blvd. A service entrance will lead around the back of the hotel, while the main entrance will take guests directly to the lobby and parking lot. The main entrance will have a dedicated left turn lane from Epcot Resorts Blvd. as well as a traffic light. This entrance will also be the way golfers will access the Fantasia Gardens course.

As we previously reported, the 349-room hotel code-named “C2” will be built adjacent to the Fantasia Gardens Mini Golf course, on the site of the tennis courts. The 14-story structure will feature a rooftop restaurant and lounge, and will be managed by Tishman Hotel Corporation, which also manages the Swan and Dolphin.

Stay tuned to WDWNT as the hotel takes shape and we bring you construction reports in the coming months.

Hey look a rendering of a hotel over by the mall in Marietta, Georgia. Oh wait…. That’s going to be at WDW. Ugh.

Where the heck are Fantasia Gardens visitors supposed to park? Everything in that area is paid parking. There really isn’t any room for this and they are forcing it in. I’m no understanding the expansion of hotel rooms and road construction everywhere. Meanwhile, although new stuff is being built in the parks the capacity of the parks is not increasing. Sounds like a perfect storm in the making.

Well this looks extremely blah! How about something with a little character and theme.
