New Facilities at Disney, Club Med

Both Club Med and the Walt Disney Co. are opening new ventures for travelers. Club Med says it is building its first casino at Club Med-Columbus Isle on San Salvador island in the Bahamas. Opening is scheduled for January, 1996.

Disney opened its first resort outside of a theme-park setting last weekend in Vero Beach, Fla., a two-hour drive southeast of Orlando. The Beach Resort is the first expansion of the Disney Vacation Club, Disney's version of time-share resorts, which was launched in 1991 at Walt Disney World. The resort is opening with a 115-room inn and 60 villas, all of which can be rented like standard hotel rooms. The resort is expected, eventually, to have 436 units.
