Disney Gets A New Neighbor as Homewood Suites Opens on Feb. 18 at Flamingo Crossings

We previously shared the news that Walt Disney World announced a new retail and dining front in the works called “Flamingo Crossings Town Center”. Disney has revealed several tenants lined up for the 200,000-square-foot retail hub. The newest addition includes the Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando which is accepting reservations beginning February 18.


Homewood Suites website shared this new hotel offers “Serene suites near Disney World. Just off SR-429, our hotel is only 10 minutes from the Walt Disney World west entrance. There are many restaurants and golf courses within a few minutes. Orlando International Airport and downtown attractions are about 27 miles away. Unwind after a busy day at our outdoor pool, or relax in your comfy, spacious suite with free WiFi.”

Other tenants coming soon to Flamingo Crossings includes Target, PDQ, Five Guys, Ben & Jerry’s, Dunkin’, Walgreens, Wendy’s, Five Below, Domino’s, Ellie Lou’s Brews & BBQ, Firehouse Sub, Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co., Pieology Pizzeria, Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, UPS store, and more!


With Walt Disney World Resort benefits slowly dwindling (no more complimentary MagicBands, Extra Magic Hours, removal of Magical Express in 2022, and fees for parking), it seems like more and more people are looking at offsite resort alternatives. This new Homewood Suites may be one to check out!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
