Flamingo Crossings Hotel construction - April 13 2020
Posted: Monday April 13, 2020 11:36am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Despite the COVID-19 construction shutdown in the theme parks, work is still continuing in Flamingo Crossings on building new hotels.

The location in Flamingo Crossings is just outside the Western Way entrance to Walt Disney World (closest to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort), putting travel time to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom at around 5 minutes.

A Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn, Homewood Suites and Home 2 Suites will join the existing TownPlace Suites and SpringHill Suites.

The new hotels are expected to open in 2020, although timelines are of course very fluid due to current events.

It caused a minor panic as I was driving in to stay at the Townplace with small kids in the car who were not going to be visiting Disney this trip. It was late. I was tired. I was convinced I was about to pop out at the MK resorts for a second lol.

That sounds great. I won't be travelling until the end of the year. (I'm making reservations early because I'm expecting a flood of travel and increased costs as Covid rates go down.) By then... who knows about fastpass!

When are you coming down? If it's soon, then I doubt fastpass will be available. With saying that Homewood suites was Homewood was modern, clean and the line of hotels there I think have a nice cohesive design to them. The pool is nice, and the breakfast was decent. The area isn't very busy, but the hotels are. However you will at times here your upstairs neighbors a bit, not their voice but sometimes footsteps and the chairs screeching across the floor. I've never stayed at the Doubletree. I will say if your coming down soon, I doubt fastpass will be here

That is your preference, which is fine. But its still true that the other one is closer to most actual residential areas.

But you've got another one right up the road at Fowler Grove right?

True, and for the most part it’s pretty hidden

Probably will look just like Carribean Beach, which has the exact same issue with the backside of Bonnet Creek resort

Yeah those sight-lines are going to get ruined

Curious to see what they’ll do, hopefully more than nothing like the backside of rat

Afford it? Sure. But they make the people staying at Caribbean Beach look at the Riviera so I don’t think they care about sight lines from the hotels.
