Disney has no short-term plans to build a fifth theme park at Disney World, although it does have the space to do so. Instead, it has focused on improving its existing parks. This site is not affiliated with, endorsed by, or otherwise associated with The Walt Disney Company. Disney needs to want to correctly size its workforce and optimize efficiency in normal times.
How will Disney handle the transportation of guests from its hotels to this park (more buses, more bus drivers, etc.) With the immediate success of his first park, Walt Disney was soon asked when and if a second Disneyland would open, with many people suggesting (or asking for) a park on the East Coast. It would be more than likely that I would go to Disney World more often if there were another park to distribute the crowds. The sheer amount of things to do inside and outside the Parks is staggering and can sometimes even be stressful for Disney veterans, but the discussion of adding more has never ceased within the Disney community. Disney World could also use this fifth park to incorporate more of its movies, shows and other IPs into the parks.
Honestly, fl needs a fifth gate, and ca needs a little attention in certain areas, a third park is not a real concern for Disney right now, they are in their entirety trying to get money out of people mode, trying to recover covid losses. When he's at Disney World, Luke will likely be found eating with his favorite animatronic, Sonny Eclipse at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe. Plus, going to a park per day is EXHAUSTING, so even if you try to fit everything into a week, it's a really exhausting “vacation”, especially for people who have saved and saved for years to do Disney and only have a limited amount of time to explore. So maybe this big gap proves that Disney World just isn't planning or willing to open a fifth theme park in Orlando right now, and maybe it won't for long.
The cost would be considerably lower, as Disney would continue its trend of becoming an owner and collecting rents and a percentage of the proceeds. A second shopping and dining area similar to Disney Springs could be a more viable alternative as it becomes more and more crowded. Now, the fifth park could encourage enough visitors to return, new visitors to come, or returning visitors to extend their stays, mitigating any fears about declining park attendance.
