Back in December, we reported on Disney’s monumental, 965-acre land purchase through the acquisition of BK Ranch, just southeast of Celebration, for $23 million.
Now it turns out that Disney has purchased even more land adjacent to the plot: a whopping 1,500+ acres to the east of BK Ranch.
Per GrowthSpotter, the land was owned by the descendants of legendary cattle rancher Oren Brown, who refused to sell Disney his land during the park’s initial construction. Oren brown died in 1993. Most of the remaining ranch property was sold on January 3rd, 2019 for 11 million dollars.
