Disney files plans for expansion to ESPN Wide World of Sports complex

Jan 27, 2016 in "ESPN Wide World of Sports"

Disney has filed permits with the South Florida Water Management district for an expansion to the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.

The plans call for a new multi-story building located behind the Josten's Center, adding 286,000 sq ft of space, using a 179,000 sq ft footprint. This is a significant addition, with the existing Josten's Center being 70,000 sq ft.

Also part of the plans is a new parking lot, located on the right hand side of the complex behind Jostens Center.

Disney has plans to make more use of the complex, having already announced that ESPN Wide World of Sports will be host to Night of Joy from 2016 onwards, and will also host the 2016 Invictus Games for the first time this year.

Thanks to danlb_2000 on the WDWMAGIC Forums for spotting the permit.
