A new Disney theme park in the Florida Keys is set to open next year.
The resort will be called The Walt Disney World Resort and will feature six new courses and three golf courses, the company announced Thursday.
The resort will feature seven themed areas, and Disney will also have its own theme park, the parks said in a news release.
The new resort will open in 2019, and will be located on the site of a former resort called the Walt Disney Springs Resort.
Disney said the resort will have more than 400,000 square feet of space for guests and will also include restaurants, entertainment and a museum.
It will be one of two new Disney resorts in the United States.
