Walt Disney World has filed permits for a large expansion project at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
According to the filed permits there will be an addition of seven new buildings that will include one large multi-level building, which appears to be home to a large number of guest rooms.
The plans show that the new large building will occupy land that is part of the existing Barbados village of the resort, which will apparently be demolished for the expansion.
Along with new construction, there are also changes planned for the roadways and retention ponds.
According to the permits work will begin in 2017 with an estimated completion sometime in 2019. Disney has not made any official announcement regarding this project. It isn’t clear yet whether Disney Vacation Club villas, that have been rumored for the resort, will be part of the development.
Height test balloons were spotted over the resort in September of 2016, which has lead to heightened speculation that a new development was imminent.
