This morning, Walt Disney World Resort filed a new permit that is potentially related to the delayed Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge project.
The permit is specific to:
Furnish and install pole mounted fixtures for temporary cast parking area
The address listed on the Disney World construction permit is 4400 Big Pine Road, the location of Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
The neighboring address, 4500 Big Pine Road, is the proposed site of Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge. While Disney has not officially announced that the new Disney Vacation Club resort project has been cancelled amid COVID-19, details about the hotel were removed from a Disney Parks Blog post about upcoming construction.
Today’s permit indicates that work could be continuing on Reflections, which is set to be a nature-inspired resort featuring an airy, modern architecture that pays homage to a variety of natural elements.
The temporary Disney World Cast Member parking area could indicate that Disney is making space for workers who will be at the Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge site on a daily basis.
The fact that work is possibly continuing on this new DVC Disney World resort indicates that hope may not be lost for the proposed Princess and the Frog restaurant either. This dining establishment is likely to feature elements from the animated film’s Tiana’s Palace and could, perhaps, look similar to the Tiana’s Place restaurant onboard Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wonder ship.
It is important to remember that The Walt Disney Company has not yet made any official announcements regarding the current status of Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge on Bay Lake. Stay tuned to Inside the Magic for further updates about this Disney Vacation Club project.
