Five Guys, Ben & Jerry’s, Dunkin’ and More Announced for Disney’s Flamingo Crossings Town Center

If you’re looking for even more shopping, dining, and lodging options near Walt Disney World, look no further than Flamingo Crossings, a mixed-use center owned by the resort itself. Right on the western edge of property, Flamingo Crossings has been the latest construction site for new hotels and retail offerings, including the new Target store (complete with Disney Store in Target) opening in 2021. Now, Disney has revealed even more tenants and plans for the space, including five new eateries.

According to the Orlando Business Journal, the 250,000-square-foot retail hub, which will feature over 50 “offerings” and 1,700 parking spaces, will also have a PDQ, Bento Asian Kitchen + Sushi, Five Guys, Ben & Jerry’s, and Dunkin’.

We previously touched upon the upcoming Walgreens in the last round of permits that were issued for the space.

Also released were further details on hotel development plans, which will total 1,750 rooms. Currently, the new SpringHill Suites by Marriott and TownePlace Suites by Marriott are open and operating. Residence Inn by Marriott, Fairfield by Marriott, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton are all under construction and slated to open by the end of 2020, with a Hampton by Hilton hotel scheduled for completion in 2021.

Disney also touched upon the new campus housing announced for students enrolled in the Disney College Program, with the first phase of campus housing set to open in 2020:

“American Campus Communities is currently constructing a new campus housing within walking distance of Flamingo Crossings Town Center. The campus housing will be home to approximately 10,400 students participating in Disney Internships and College Programs. The first phase of the campus housing is scheduled to open in 2020, and the remainder is expected to be completed by mid-2023.”

Flamingo Crossings is already a busy section of Central Florida, but with all this recent development, it’s sure to increase traffic revenue flow, and jobs for the city. Local residents are excited about the new shopping and dining locations while theme park guests will appreciate having some “real world” stores located just a short drive or rideshare trip away. What do you think of all the new additions for the shopping complex?

  1. Traffic is already crazy at Western and flamingo, Avalon can’t support the traffic it already receives and they’re building apartments and 55+ living at hartzog. My commute will easily double and I’m not happy about any of it.

  2. The Springhill Suites and Towneplace Suites have been the best kept secret for “off property” lodging that’s basically on property. Looks like the cat’s out of the bag. SR-429 is going to be a LOT busier now…

  3. Five Guys the greasiest food on the planet, Ben & Jerry’s the police haters, and Dunkin who ships their donuts frozen to the stores for gullible customers to buy. 👎

  4. As a former College Program cast member, I’m most excited about future CPs having easier access to grocery shopping (at Target). Seems better than having to ride a bus to the Walmart on 192(?). If you were able to hitch a ride to the nearer by Publix, great, but on CP salary….

    • That bus ride was hell. My ice cream always melted before I got home. It was faster for me to WALK back to the apartments from Publix than to wait for the bus.

  5. Florida and Lake County need to get a major new road from Avalon Road and Western Way to US 27. And not the toll road they were talking about this summer. Avalon and 192 become a parking lot every evening. I have measured over mile of cars lined up to get on 192.

  6. I don’t think local are that happy like they said…. that means more tragic that the one we already have…. I wish they will add more roads too…
