Reflections — A Disney Lakeside Lodge, which had already begun construction prior to the pandemic, has had no updates or has even been mentioned by Disney in quite some time.

What Is Reflections — A Disney Lakeside Lodge?

The previously announced Disney Resort was planned to be built on the same land as the old River Country water park and was even set to have a The Princess and the Frog-themed restaurant. Since the Lakeside Lodge is set to be inspired by the wonders of nature and artistry of Walt Disney, it’s only fitting for it to be the new location of a Princess and the Frog-themed restaurant, as the 2009 film features incredible animation showcasing the natural beauty of the bayou.

Additionally, in the artist renderings (below) of the property, we can clearly see that the lobby was set to feature a Pocahontas statue.

What Is the Status of Reflections?

Before the pandemic hit, work on Reflections already began, however, in more recent months, rumors began circulating that Disney pulled the plug on the project. In case you missed it, Reflections — A Disney Lakeside Lodge was removed from Disney’s press releases despite the company not having made a formal announcement that there may have been a change in plans. Though, again, nothing has been confirmed at this time.

Now, thanks to bioreconstruct, we have an aerial view of the site of Reflections — A Disney Lakeside Lodge. Per bioreconstruct:

It looks like there hasn’t been any movement on the project since prior to the pandemic, indicating the rumors could be true. However, please keep in mind that at the time of publication, Disney has not made an official announcement regarding Reflections — A Disney Lakeside Lodge.

Inside the Magic will keep you updated as we get information regarding this project.
