Default Disney World Buys 235 Acres

Disney World just bought 235 acres on its West side for an unpublished reason. Could they be developing a buffer against intrusion by The Villages?

Great. I had my first house to the west, except the deveoper didn't build any of the 695 homes he took deposits on.. so he is now in jail for fraud :-)

Looks like they have just bought my house... but I like the idea of a TV Golf cart park.

Nope! Disney welcomes those who can afford their ticket prices.

Perhaps seeking to unite with the Villages rather than divide from! Unification - a unique idea - no? Will hopefully have charging stations for electric carts as well a gas pumps for others and a monorail/tram to the main campus!

Default Disney Expansion Rumor

OK, so according to my landscaper's Sister who heard it from her hairdresser while shopping at the Meat market on 301, it’s for the monorail connecting to Brownwood.

The Villages is 60 miles or more from Orlando. What interest would TV have 60+ miles away

It will be interesting to see what they eventually do...with the extra land.

The post reads, " Disney" bought property on the west side of "Disney"! That is 50 miles east of the Villages. I don't understand how everyone is making comments about the Villages in relation to this. I wouldn't think it has anything to do with "The Villages". Unless someone can offer facts that directly connect the two properties somehow!

I think most of the comments are just a tad tongue in cheek
