The Walt Disney World Resort is about to get its own hotel next to the theme park.
The Walt D. and Catherine J. Evans Walt Disney Springs Hotel will be built on the former site of the Disney Castle and will be open to the public for up to three years, according to a release from the Walt Disney Company.
The hotel will open in 2021, the release states.
Guests who stay at the hotel for three months or more will receive a special, exclusive offer.
Guests can also take a complimentary, Disney-branded day pass for three days or an all-day pass for four days.
Guests will have access to a large dining room and an outdoor terrace area with a view of the Magic Kingdom.
The new hotel will be the second Disney-owned property to be built in Florida.
The original Walt Disney Studios and Contemporary Resort opened in Orlando in 2010.
The two properties were both located just west of Disney Springs, and were the first to open.
The parks’ largest property opened in 2015, the first time a Disney resort in Florida opened before a new one opened nearby.
The development will also include the former Disney World Lodge, which closed in 2016.
The park’s second building, the new Magic Kingdom, opened in 2019.
The resort is owned by Walt Disney Family Entertainment.
It includes a resort hotel, restaurants, shops, entertainment and more.
Disney Vacation Club is the resort’s most popular membership option, with more than 7 million members.
The Disney resort is also the only Disney property to offer dining reservations and Disney Springs Lodge.
Disney World’s two largest hotel chains, Hilton and Hilton Hotels, have also joined the Disney hotel project.
Disney also is working on a project in Canada that would expand its theme parks to a total of six theme parks.
