I'm surprised they are going ahead with this before seeing how Hawaii does in terms of demand and such.

The most likely scenario is that Disney was able to purchase the land at a greatly reduced price due to the economic downturn and could still wait to see how Hawaii does before the decide to move forward with the DC project or sell the land for more than they paid.

It's in Maryland and there is no public transportation to DC frmo there. I imagine Disney would provide something like shuttle buses though.

We went and spent a week in Hilton Head (will do trip report for points, LOL) at the DVC resort there... and on the way back spent 2 days in DC at a Westin. I would have enjoyed a Disney-level resort to stay and tour DC!
