Soon there will be more than just a Margaritaville restaurant in Orlando. A lot more. A “Margaritavillage,” consisting of a hotel, vacation homes, retail space, water park, and a lot more will be built on 300 acres near Disney’s Animal Kingdom:

A new resort called Margaritavillage, which will include a hotel, more than 1,000 vacation homes and condos, retail and a beach area, will open in Osceola County in 2017, its developers said Wednesday.

The Margaritavillage hotel is expected to have 175 to 300 rooms and would include a lake with a dedicated beach area and a regional water park. A “lagoon-sized” pool is also planned, said Bagley.

The development plans also include a “FinCity” arcade, a St. Somewhere Spa, a planetarium, a Son of a Sailor fishing school, paddle boarding and kayaking.

Additionally, 170,000 square feet of retail space will be built. No brands have been announced, but Bagley said there’s been strong demand for leasing information.

Encore will develop and own food-and-beverage options, which have not been detailed, at the resort. Plans do not include building a Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant, said Bagley. There’s a Margaritaville restaurant at Universal Orlando CityWalk, near the entrance of the Island of Adventure theme park.

Site preparation is underway, and developers expect to begin vertical construction in the third quarter of 2016. All phases of the project will be under construction at the same time.
