Where Will the Next Disney Timeshare Be?
Wednesday, December 23, 2009
If you keep track of the timeshares under development at Disney, you already know that the next Disney timeshare resort to open will be in Oahu, Hawaii, at the Kolina Resort Disney Vacation Club. The Disney timeshare resort in Oahu will offer 350 hotel rooms and 480 timeshare villas located on approximately 21 acres of oceanfront property.
But Mouse-watchers know that Disney seems to have more plans in store for the Disney Vacation Club. Last summer, Disney announced the purchase of fifteen acres overlooking the Potomac River in Maryland. The site, at the National Harbor development, was acquired for $11 million and is said to be the future home of a 500-room Disney resort.
Last week, Mouse Planet (one of our favorite blogs to follow) reported that in Disney’s 10K annual report filing with the Security and Exchange Commission, there was no mention of the property at the National Harbor. Here’s what Mouse Planet had to say, “…in the section of the 10K describing the Disney Vacation Club’s business, it lists all properties open or under construction, including the land that was purchased on the island of Oahu, Hawaii that will be the home of the Ko Olina Resort. However, it’s interesting that no mention was made of the land purchase at National Harbor in Maryland. While neither details nor a construction start date has been announced, it was presented as a location for a new Disney resort. Perhaps it is not necessary to report the holding until construction has actually begun.“
Everything about the National Harbor is exciting. As The Timeshare Authority has already reported, Wyndham timeshare and Wyndham timeshare resales are already available at the 300-acre harbor side community development and a Disney timeshare would be an excellent addition to project. Jay Rasulo, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, explains, “National Harbor offers an array of entertaining activities for regional visitors, but it is also a family-friendly base camp, from which visitors around the world can explore the stirring sights and inspirational stories of our nation’s capital. We bbelieve National Harbor has the unique opportunity to offer a new level of family-friendly hospitality.”
