The company has unveiled plans to build the world’s largest indoor arena in the Texas Panhandle, a development that will feature a water park, a casino, an amusement park, and more.
The $10 billion project will be known as the Disney-Opelika Amphitheater.
The project is one of several planned for the Panhandle area in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, with several others on the drawing board.
The Disney-Odessa project will include an indoor arena, which will include a waterpark, a hotel, a convention center, and an amusement-park.
It will also include a convention space, which the company said will have a convention hall, restaurant, and a gaming area.
Construction is expected to start in 2019.
The park, which is expected be open in 2024, will be built on the former site of the current Opelika Stadium.
It’s expected to be the largest indoor sports venue in the country, the Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement.
The construction of the arena is part of a $40 billion plan to modernize the Panhandas facilities in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
That plan includes a $10 million gift from the city of Opelikas, which owns the stadium.
The deal was announced Monday by the mayor of Opalika, David Kuehl, in an interview with ABC News.
He said the city is committed to building a world-class indoor arena.
