Guests pay a premium to stay at one of the monorail resorts in the Magic Kingdom area in order to get quick access to the Magic Kingdom. It looks like Disney may be looking for an opportunity to replicate this over at Epcot, providing guests with main gate access to the theme park. Currently there is a rumor circulating around various sources that there could be a new resort for Epcot in the works. The rumors are that there could be a resort planned on the Epcot monorail track so that guests can utilize the Epcot monorail to get to the park, similarly to how the Magic Kingdom monorail resorts operate. There is also a rumor that the resort would be built close to the main gate of the park or to a location where a guest entrance could be created into to park right from the resort. This would definitely be extremely exciting for guests who love frequenting Epcot to play or dine during their stay.
Disney hasn’t built a full brand new resort in a few years. There have been numerous expansions and renovations to existing resorts, but it has been a while for a completely new resort with a new theme. We would love to see a new resort added to the area to enjoy. If this resort were to become a reality, we can expect that it would likely be a Deluxe resort given the location to the theme park.
There has been nothing confirmed by Disney at this time, so we will keep you posted if we hear anything else on this.
What would you think of a new resort with main gate access added in the Epcot area?
