Disney World plans resorts, theme park

ORLANDO, Fla.–Walt Disney World plans to build three resorts with more than 4,500 rooms and a third water theme park during the 1990s.

Walt Disney Attractions chairman Dick Nunis and president Judson Green gave few details about the water theme park at Disney’s annual “State of Our World” address Tuesday in Orlando. But it is expected to be a themed water park much like River Country and Typhoon Lagoon.

The themed resorts at the home of the Magic Kingdom and Epcot Center will be the All-Star Sports Resort, All-Star Music Resort and Wilderness Lodge.

The 1,920-room sports resort will have an entryway shaped like a huge whistle and a stairway shaped like a football.

The music resort will have 1,920 rooms and will feature a guitar-shaped swimming pool and a pair of cowboy boots three stories tall.

The Wilderness Lodge, with 725 rooms, will be designed like a turn-of-the-century national park lodge with exposed beams and quarried stone fixtures.

Disney says it is seriously considering Branson, Mo., for new development but offered no details.
