Posted: Monday December 21, 2020 4:11pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Sales are now underway at Walt Disney World's massive Cast Members housing project at Flamingo Crossings.

Featuring 2 and 4 bedrooms apartments located just minutes from the theme parks, the Flamingo Crossings Village was originally intended to house members of Disney's College Program, which has remained suspended since the COVID-19 shutdown in March 2020. It now appears that Disney will instead offer the apartments exclusively to its existing Cast Members and Operating participants. Immediate move-ins are available, along with short-term leases.

You can find out more about the new housing at the Flamingo Crossings Village website.

Flamingo Crossings Village provides Cast Members and Operating Participants with spacious 2 and 4 bedroom apartments at a range of rates conducive for various budgets. All apartments feature hardwood-style flooring, stainless steel appliances, a washer and dryer, a flat panel TV and a free furniture package.

Enjoy the expansive Community Center, including a 12,500 sq ft state-of-the-art fitness center, multipurpose lounges, and indoor recreation with ping pong, billiards, arcade games and more! Take a step outside to explore the resort-style swimming pools, basketball and sand volleyball courts, and The Great Lawn courtyard space. Flamingo Crossings Village is how you want to live.

Won't be long before someone sees a great opportunity to build some 'affordable housing'. !

Or, more importantly, what diseases?

Doesn't that depend on who's in them?

They are “on hold”...they’re still waiting for the test results after the “incident” at Vista Way 1998

But are there hot tubs?

The set up is awesome

Wow, this actually looks like a great place to live in. The future DCP castmembers are so lucky they have this plus a commercial center and a Target right beside it.

I imagine that many....very BIGLY many...of that sea of apartments is in arrears on rent under the federal covid umbrellas... That’s gonna get ugly sooner or later.

Well, I wish them good luck with their "1 month free!" promos that literally every single complex's website I've looked at has going on. The unit next to me sat vacant for about 3 months, which is the longest any unit in my corner has been vacant for the time I've been in this complex. It seems the big real estate/development companies are content to eat extended vacancies instead of dropping actual rates.

Those local prices are based on the 2015-2019 “we’re all gonna be rich!” Climate in Orlando. ...that world isn’t there now

I will say that it is likely American Campus Communities setting these prices with relatively little guidance from Disney as to price, or at least that would be my guess. They both probably just want this filled enough to not be a complete loss and just sitting entirely vacant until the Programs start up again. The prices do seem a little high IMO (especially for the 2 bedroom), but given the rent for other new complexes around here, I can't say I'm entirely surprised, since they are trying to rent to more "regular" people at the moment.

The current Disney management believes that there is unlimited amounts of money and they can set their prices Before some wisealvin says “wasn’t it always that way??” ...no

CommunicoraDec 22, 2020

Yeah, that is an absurdly high price.

I think I see where you’re coming from... Do you work for Disney?
