It looks as though Marriott are wasting no time beginning construction after filing construction permits for two new hotels in Flamingo Crossings.

This past week has seen early site preparation take place on the site of what is expected to be a 'TownePlace Suites by Marriott,' and 'SpringHill Suites by Marriott.' You can read more about the plans here.

Neither Disney or Marriott has announced the project, so at this point it should still be treated as speculation.

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.

Sounds like a good plan. I hope you have a great time :)

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

castlecake2.0May 26, 2021

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.
