Target store at Flamingo Crossings
Posted: Wednesday November 10, 2021 9:33am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Target has opened its doors today at the Disney master-planned Flamingo Crossings just outside the Walt Disney World gateway on Western Way.

The store is a mini-version of the Super Target style store, and it covers all of the main shopping needs, including fresh produce, frozen foods, grocery items, CVS pharmacy, clothing, household goods, and a dedicated beer, wine and spirits area. Think of it is offering the best sellers from a full sized Super Target store.

The new Target at Flamingo Crossings is a very convenient addition for anyone staying in the new hotels in the area, and for the recently opened College Program housing.

For guests staying on Walt Disney World property, this new Target is likely to be the closest grocery store. It is on the western side of property, closest to Disney's Coronado Springs, which is about a 5 minute drive away.

Being so close to Disney and part of the Disney planned Flamingo Crossings, there is a section in the store dedicated to Disney. You'll find Disney plush, clothing and accessories.

Alcohol offerings include a range of wine, beer and spirits in a dedicated space with its own entrance off the lobby.

The store also features Target's drive up curbside ordering with 6 spaces.

Target is the second store to open in Flamingo Crossing after Walgreens. Upcoming openings include Five Guys and Five Below.

Joining the line-up later will be PDQ, Ben & Jerry's, Dunkin', Wendy's, Domino's, Ellie Lou's Brews & BBQ, Firehouse Subs, Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co., Pieology Pizzeria, Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ and a UPS Store.

Hartzog south of Western Way is being completely rerouted and the existing “Hartzog Rd” south of the new CP housing already has a new name. They just finished some initial paving on the new Hartzog Rd and where the new turn lanes are a little north of the original Hartzog intersection with Avalon is where it will come out when completed.

It was also very common for CRPs to buy cars and sell them to another CRP at the end of their program, along with a lot of Canadians driving down for their program.

Ah. That makes sense.

Parking lot size is set by zoning codes based on building type. They have to have at least 1 spot per unit, with that increasing based on the number of bedrooms in a unit plus visitor parking.

They have a very very large parking lot for individuals not having cars.

I believe that is where the Toll Brothers community is going to be. We were interested in it for a frw seconds until we saw the pricing structure and is why we are building in north Claremont.

They are building a housing community back there along Hartzhog, but they have to do all the infrustructure first.

Thanks for the report. I drive by here all the time but never think to take photos. Do you know why/what/where Hartzhog is under construction? I like to take that shortcut from Avalon but the "road closed" signs have been up for months now.

Photo update as of Wednesday, January 5, 2022. Some additional photos from Flamingo Crossing Retail Center. The vehicle barricades have been removed from the four approaches to the retail center of Flamingo Crossing. You are able to drive through the complex. The buildings are closed but completed on the outside. Some buildings have fences around the entrances, but you can still walk the sidewalks. The Starbucks below is on the north side of Western Way, facing south. Firehouse Subs (not open yet) is a block south of Western Way and facing north. The bushes in the median of Western Way are in the foreground. The elevated pedestrian walkway (orange) over Hartzog Road can be seen on the left of the below photo. The elevated pedestrian walkway is of the same construction as those at Disney Springs, just a different color. This view is over Hartzog Road northbound. This walkway is between Western Way and Disney's cast member apartments. These two towers for another elevated walkway are over Western Way, as viewed from the Starbucks parking lot. The towers contain stairways and an elevator.

It is pretty much the wild west here in Florida. The house next to mine is a corporately owned rental and they raise the rent $200-$300 a month every year. My house is the same size on a lakefront lot and my mortgage including insurance and property taxes is about $500/month less than what they are currently charging for rent.

Damn! In NJ there are laws to protect renters. Increases must be reasonable, and I can assure you that would not be considered reasonable unless someone was renting something that was in the range of $10k/month or more.
