Some signs of life are occurring throughout Flamingo Crossings, the large-scale complex planned along Disney’s western border that sits within the boundaries of Horizon West. Depending on which map is referenced, Flamingo Crossings either is or isn’t directly listed in the boundary for Village I, but is usually included in the boundary for Horizon West. Either way, with the eventual expansion of Western Way connecting to Avalon Road, this complex will be a significant part of Horizon West and the name will bleed over into surrounding areas.
Two hotels are open in Flamingo Crossings, Springhill Suites and Townplace Suites. These hotels offer quick access into the backdoor of Disney along Western Way, and are probably also the closest non-Disney hotels for Horizon West friends and family to stay at if coming for a visit. Additional hotels are planned for this complex along with additional apartments for Disney workers. These apartments will allow college students to participate in their “College Program” to work at the resort for a semester.
The construction site shown at the end before the Waterleigh and Storey Grove entrance photos is land prep for a new D.R. Horton development at the corner of Avalon and Flamingo Crossings Blvd.
