The Orlando Sentinel has a few more details including a map.

Wooooowww!

Seriously, I think if someone had a cool 1.8 million lying around this would be a great way to make some money. Once the economy picks back up these will probably be worth some biiiiiggg bucks one day!

It's not quiet my dream of living a-top Alhoa Isle and having a Dole Whip any time I please..but..it's pretty close.

What do I think? I think I need to win the lotto! Yes they will be in that area north west of the cabins...google Fort Wilderness on google maps and you can see the area at the edge of Bay Lake...

What's scary is that's 1.5 - 8 million ... for the LOT! You still have to build a house on it!

I love Disney as much as the next grownup, but no thanks. I can think of much better ways to spend that kind of money.

I'm not sure it wouldn't lose it's magic after a while. I think I'd like visiting more than living there.

I agree..I thought about working there once but decided against it. I would hate it to become "just work" or harbor any other feelings than sheer joy towards it.

It's an awfully big commitment too. Way bigger than DVC!

Do you know how many DVC points you could buy for that!?

Enough to stay in a 2 bedroom at AKL villas for the entire year confused laugh
Seriously, I did not crunch the numbers but I imagine it would be more than plausible. BUT I think DVC has regulations in place to prohibit such a large scale purchase from people who simply could.

I also bet there are maintenance fees and lots of taxes as well. I bet with or without DVC points you could get a lot of great vacations without the commitment. Although it would be fun to answer "Where do you live?" with "Disney World."
