Ghost resort in Disney World

Matt sez, "Along the lines of the 'ghost' hotels in Egypt sitting incomplete, Disney World has had the Legendary Years section of Pop Century sitting incomplete for several years as well. " Link to YouTube video, Link to photo gallery (Thanks, Matt!)


  1. that’s nothing…I know a certain United States Air Force Base that has a fully equipped Shuttle Launch pad that has NEVER been used. It was created in the 1980s and is absolutely massive, yet nobody really ever mentions it.

  2. Interesting. In the photo group it says that the place was apparently expected to be finished and ready to be moved into by vacationers in ‘late 2007 or early 2008’…

  3. Wow! It’s hard to believe that any building located that close to the Epcot sphere could be so desolate!

    Thanks for the link, Yorgle!

  4. #4: The one on the California coast, meant for launching military missions on polar-crossing orbits?

  5. I don’t know about anybody else, but my favorite part of the video was when the tiny bug walked across the lens of the camera at 1:01. That really completed my experience of the environment. :)

  6. I believe this was a casualty of 9/11, when the tourism dropped so did the need for all those rooms.

  7. It makes me sad that we have so many homeless that could live there comfortably, and yet there it sits behind razorwire. It’s not like Disney will EVER finish this project…

  8. Why does abandoned stuff seem more interesting than stuff thats being used?

    It’s the lack of people. People ruin everything.

  9. I know this post was from quite a while ago, but while down in Disney World over Christmas I asked about that hotel, and it is scheduled to open in 2011. They ran out of money to finish it, but are working on it again.

  10. Just for everyone’s information, this “ghost resort” will be open for business in 2011, after a change in theming. The “new” resort will be “The Art of Disney Animation Resort” and will feature themed rooms… themes being Finding Nemo, Little Mermaid, Cars and one other.
