Land West of Animal Kingdom being prepped for new development

Animal Kingdom

A recent report released by Growth Spotter indicates that a real estate developer is planning a future project west of Walt Disney World Resort. A Chicago-area company led by real estate developer and advisor Kimm Dodaro is under contract to purchase land west of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Kimm Dodaro leads a company called the Walter Joseph Group, which specializes in helping charities accept gifts of real estate.

You can see the area of consideration in the above image. Their specific Land Use Plan application states that Dodaro is hoping to develop 260 short-term rental units and a nine-story hotel with up to 240 suites. The tentative real estate project would be done through a company she manages called Walter Blake Inc. The land area they are seeking is approximately 119 acres in size. It’s located north of U.S. 192 and west of Avalon Road.

The area would permit a mix of real estate services for future use. Specifically, it will present short-term rental and time-share opportunities for visitors. The real estate developer’s plans would present fun new options for where to stay while visiting Central Florida’s theme parks! We will provide updates when new information becomes available for the development of this land area west of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
