Orlando, Florida — Disney is officially taking the wraps off the next big step in its ambitious plans to build the world’s largest cruise ship park.
On Wednesday, the company unveiled its plans for Westgate, a $3.5 billion resort that will be home to over 1.4 million guests.
The resort will be built on a 3.5 million-acre site in Westgate Florida, the second-largest park in the world behind Dubai’s Al Maktoum and is expected to open in 2019.
The park will offer a 360-degree view of the Florida Keys and will also have its own hotel, restaurants, shops and a movie theater.
According to Disney, Westgate will include 1,400 hotels, two casinos, two theme parks, four restaurants and six theme-park-themed hotels.
Disney will also build a large lake, a casino, and a shopping mall, among other features.
It will also include three theme-fairs, an amphitheater, an aquatic center, two roller coasters, two water parks and a water park-themed hotel.
Westgate will also feature its own indoor and outdoor shopping and entertainment complex and its own spa.
At its peak, Westgates capacity will be 1.3 million guests per day, and it will feature the most expansive ocean-front theme park in Orlando.
Westgate is expected come in at a whopping $5.5bn and has already been delayed by several years, with the park set to open later this year and be the biggest project in the Disney World Resort’s history.
A Disney spokesperson said the company’s plans were in line with its goal to open a fully operational cruise ship terminal at the end of 2019.
Last year, Disney opened a 1.6-billion-dollar park in Walt Disney World, and Disney Cruise Lines is expected with the opening of Westgate.
