PHOTOS: Construction on “The Cove” Hotel at Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Continues Throughout Extended Parks Closure
While most construction projects around Walt Disney World have come to a stop during the COVID-19 pandemic, work on The Cove continues. The new hotel adjacent to the Swan & Dolphin Resorts continues to be a hive of activity. Nestled in the corner of land in the parking lot for Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf, workers continue to move the project forward.
From all around the nearby area at Walt Disney World, the large white and red construction cranes at the site dominate the skyline.
Approaching the site, workers are plainly visible around the site as various parts of the building continue to make their vertical journey towards completion.
Corridors and support beams are starting to form as each floor is added to the hotel.
Work on the east side of the hotel continues to move along as well, with rebar supports jutting out of the top-most layers to the future hotel.
The large cranes were working too, hoisting large batches of construction materials into place at the site.
The Cove will be an additional tower at the Swan and Dolphin and will include 349 rooms. When it’s complete, Marriott will have 2,600 rooms between the Swan, Dolphin, and Cove hotels. Are you looking forward to The Cove’s completion? Let us know in the comments below.
