Disney World’s annual resort and resort-like structure in Orlando, Florida, has a history dating back to its creation in 1955.
Now, the company is exploring the idea of making it an actual theme park in the coming years.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Walt Disney Imagineering President of Development and Design Rob Schieffer revealed that Disney is actively exploring the concept of a theme park for the park.
Schieffer also said that Disney recently made a deal with local developer and theme park architect, LAC Capital Partners to make the resort a part of its upcoming theme park development.
“We are working on it,” Schieffersaid.
“We are really interested in it.
We are in the early stages of doing it.”
In an exclusive interview with THR, Schieeffersaid that the development of the resort is being led by Disney Imagineers in a partnership with LAC, a group of developers and designers, who are all working on a theme-park project for DisneyWorld.
The Imagineering team is working on the development, he said, and will be sharing that information with Lac as soon as they have a clear idea of what the park should look like.
“We don’t want to put anything on the table, just get it right, and we are getting ready to get started,” Smechieffer said.
“I would say we have a great idea of how to do it.
It’s a long way to go, but we’re working very hard on it.”
The Disney Imagineer, a Disney-owned company that manages and designs Walt Disney World theme parks, has been in talks with local developers and architects since 2009 to develop a theme resort for the theme park.
Schiefer said that the team is excited about the development project.
“The Disney team is looking at all options, from land, to development, to theme park, to an entire resort,” Sieffer told THR.
“There are many different approaches that have been explored and I think we’re all very excited to be involved in this.”
The theme park concept has been under development for a long time.
In 2012, Disney purchased the Orlando Convention Center for $4.5 billion, and is currently working to construct the $50 billion, $100 billion and $150 billion theme park projects at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The park’s development could also benefit the company’s other parks in California, where Disney plans to open its first theme parks.
Disney plans on opening a park in Anaheim, California in 2020 and a park called Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2019.
In addition, Disney is currently developing a Disney Parks in Brazil as well.
Disney is also developing an indoor theme park at the theme parks of its Florida resorts.
