A realtor mentioned that they thought construction had halted at the Disney Resort in Ko Olina. Well as I have observed with my own eyes, (see below photo) and the news article, I don't believe that this is the case.
As reported by NBC WPTV channel 5 today:
Preliminary site work is underway at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts first family destination resort in Hawaii. The company says they were establishing where the foundations will be placed and laying the underground utilities at Ko Olina.
The twenty-one acre oceanfront resort is scheduled to open in 2011.
The Disney resort is to include 350 traditional hotel rooms. It will also feature 480 timeshare vacation villas. Plans call for a pool and water play area, an 18,000 square-foot spa, a wedding lawn, an 8,000 square-foot convention center and a children's club
So it's nice to see that our Beach Villa's neighbor is continuing to move forward with their "family destination", welcome to the neighborhood.
