[QUOTE=Soundgod;1081991]No! It is not on Disney grounds!
Bonnet Creek represents the one section of the property that Walt wanted to buy but was unable to because the owner didn’t want to sell.
When the original owner passed away, his heirs expressed their desire to sell the land to Disney, but Disney decided they no longer wanted or needed that extra land.
Hilton eventually bought the land. Unfortunately for Disney, this parcel is considered an “island” because it is surrounded by Disney’s private property on three sides and bordered by I-4 on the 4th side. As the State of Florida has no desire to build a special access exit from I-4 into the property, Disney is compelled to allow Bonnet Creek visitors and employees access to their property from Walt Disney World, in this case, the entrance on Buena Vista Drive.
(We had a similar problem with an island parcel inside our condo community that was never owned by our condo. The original developer retained the land with the intention of building three more buildings, but went out of business and sold the land to another developer. The new developer wanted to build a new condominium inside of our boundaries and not be part of our condo. When we tried to stop the development, we were informed that we could not stop them and even worse, we had to allow the new condo to have complete access to our roadways and gates)
So, Disney has no connection to Hilton’s Bonnet Creek Resort and Disney Transport does not serve Bonnet Creek.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, what I said. Just with more historical background I didn’t want to include.:laugh:
