This week, Disney announced it will proceed with building a second retail shopping district near Walt Disney World. The new Flamingo Crossings shopping complex will bring 29 more retail and restaurant spaces to the area (approx 237,000 sq ft of space). It is aimed at being a more cost-effective, budget-friendly shopping and dining alternative to the swanky Disney Springs complex.

Two hotels- SpringHill Suites by Marriot and TownePlace Suites by Marriott already occupy space at Flamingo Crossings and up to 5 more hotels will also occupy the space over time. The first of the five hotels will be an already-announced Hampton Inn & Suites.

The Flamingo Crossings complex, which was originally announced in 2007, will occupy roughly 45 acres between Flagler Ave and Flamingo Crossings Blvd. It is planned for development in three phases with construction of the first phase beginning in 2018.

There will be much more revealed about Flamingo Crossings as the project begins, so be sure to check back here soon for more info.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
