The Timberline Resort and Spa in Oregon, where the Walt Disney World Resort currently is located, has been described by its owner as “the Disneyland of the west.”
That’s not exactly true, though, with its iconic wooden lodge and its expansive grounds.
The resort, located in the town of Timberline, Oregon, has long been home to many of the world’s most celebrated Disney Theme Parks.
In fact, the resort has earned the nickname of the Disneyland of Yosemite, and it is known as the “Disney Disneyland of Oregon” due to its expansive location in the Willamette Valley.
The Walt Disney Company has always maintained a special interest in Timberline’s theme park reputation, and the resort recently received an additional $10 million in state funding to expand the resort to accommodate guests from 2019 onward.
What does that mean for you?
The new state funding, called the Oregon State Economic Development Investment Plan (OSEDIP), provides additional funding for hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, and recreational facilities at the resort.
This funding will be available to hotels and other property owners in the resort area for new or existing projects that will create employment for residents and visitors.
There are many ways that this funding could be used.
In addition to expanding the hotel, it could also be used to pay for the construction of new dining, entertainment, and retail spaces at the Resort, which will add to the resort’s already impressive offerings.
It is a welcome change from the resort in recent years, as the resort had previously been run by the resort board, which had been plagued by problems with finances.
Now that the state funding has arrived, the board will have a clearer picture of how to manage the economic impact of the $10.6 million in funding and the construction plans.
