According to county records, Disney has purchased an additional 26 acres of land west of Magic Kingdom.
This land purchase is adjacent to a 235 acre purchase made late last year. Records show that Disney purchased the 26 acres for just over $1 million.
The land, according to the Orange County Property Appraiser, sits on Reedy Lake and is northwest of the Walt Disney World Magnolia golf course, and under 2 miles from Disney’s flagship theme park – Magic Kingdom.
Of course, when looking at a map, a theme park or resort expansion could be the last thing on Disney’s mind with this purchase. The property sits adjacent to Disney’s already sprawling solar farm along State Road 429. It’s possible that Disney is either purchasing this land to expand their solar farm, or perhaps to simply ensure that nobody else builds nearby.
