    Rumor Brazil (and maybe others) Pavilion Coming to Epcot [not about Brazilian people nor a country wish list]

    It'd be interesting to know what project "Brazil" could be if it's not the World Showcase pavilion.

    Rumor Brazil (and maybe others) Pavilion Coming to Epcot [not about Brazilian people nor a country wish list]

    I recently stumbled across the resume of a concept designer who's worked on several WDI projects, one of them called "Brazil" from 2016:

    New Seven Seas Lagoon Resort

    To briefly touch on the Mediterranean Resort again - Here's several maps from the 1991 proposal- this one made it pretty far through the permitting process and included a monorail station: Images are from the documents in this SFWMD Filing...

    Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom Walkway

    One more noteworthy tidbit... The e-mail correspondence from the permit application mentioned an "RCID Address Finder" - I'd never heard of that before and it sounded interesting so I went digging to see if I could find it, and sure enough, it's a really snazzy little tool. It already has the...

    Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom Walkway

    It's kinda irrelevant now, as Disney has already confirmed the existence of this walkway, but the application documents for this permit were finally uploaded into the system this morning. There's a brief bit of email correspondence that confirms the walkway and bridge, and the documents also...

    Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom Walkway

    One last thing I just realized about this permit... The address listed is an address associated with the Grand Floridian, 3291 Floridian Way. So that, in addition to the permit being titled "Grand Floridian to ..." definitely makes me think this is a walkway that will start at the Grand Floridian.

    Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom Walkway

    When the permit application gets added to the system in a few days (hopefully by mid next week) we should have a better picture of the scope of this project. That document will contain the exact amount of acreage being disturbed. All we know at this point is that it's more than 5 acres because...

    Grand Floridian to Magic Kingdom Walkway

    I thought of that too, and it definitely could be just for that path to nowhere. However, the permit is for Large construction, indicating it will affect more than 5 acres of land. Even doing a very generous measurement around the path I was only able to get to about 4.5 acres. And yes, it's...

    AMC Theater Remodel

    A Notice of Commencement was filed today for "Theater Remodel and related improvements" for the Disney Springs AMC. Hopefully this is an extensive remodel, as the theater very much needs an update, in my opinion. The contractor attached to the project is Whiting-Turner, who generally do very...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    Some new permits were filed with the SFWMD for a "Project H" today. The permits are only for borings/soil testing and site clearing, so there's no definitive proof that this is for the hotel yet, but the location is right on the outside of Hollywood Studios/Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, so it's more...

    LA TIMES: Walt Disney World plans to deploy driverless shuttles

    Yeah, like Bolt said, these definitely sound like they're going to be parking lot trams, which don't carry ECVs anyway. And like the article says, the state of current driverless technology works best in well mapped areas on simple paths and at lower speeds. We're still many years away from...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner -

    My apologies if this has already been posted, but the last several pages have been kind of a mess. New NOC documents were added to several SFWMD permits earlier this week that give us a pretty clear picture of this project's timeline... First, the permit for the station at Disney's Art of...
