Construction Starts on State-of-the-Art Laundry Facility at Walt Disney World
The facility is being built to support the expansion of resort hotel rooms and to accommodate the adjustments in the kind of lines being used at the hotels.
The new facility is located near Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and will create 400 new jobs at Walt Disney World. These jobs include 200 construction-related jobs and 200 cast member positions including linen handlers, maintenance, and managers.
“The new facility will showcase some of the textile industry’s most cutting-edge features including conveyors and air suction tubes that quickly move linens and machines that automatically sort, separate and fold,” said J.R. Garcia, director of textile services at Walt Disney World Resort.
Disney’s newest laundry facility will be one of the most technologically advanced facilities in the country.
The laundry facility is scheduled to open in 2015.
