A permit was filed today for demolition at 14 different locations along Sea Breeze Dr and Cayman way. That is exactly the number of structures in the Barbados and Martinique sections, 12 guest buildings, and two pools and associated buildings.
Yay, that was sooner than thought. Great spotting that!

I am on hold with Disney as I type this. They are trying to say the $75 GC per night stay only applies to previous bookings, but it does not state that in the refurb notice on the website that mentions the $75 offer.

Wait, is the plan to demolish all of Martinique? Even buildings 25 and 26 right next to Old Port?

I recall someone saying a permit was filed for the demo of 14 buildings, which would be 6 Barbados and 6 Martinique, plus the laundry facility at each quiet pool.

Hmmm.
 
Sorry for the delay. I forgot about posting this. After speaking with several people(and being on hold for what seemed like an eternity), I was told the $75 GC offer(for each night of stay) applies to all existing reservations, along with any made prior to 3/20/17. GC handed out at time of check in.
So they specifically said if you book after 3/20 they will not offer the $75 GC?

Good question, looking back at the permit it doesn't show those two buildings being removed. Here is everything the permit shows being removed.

Two Questions:
1. It seems like the Gondola is going to have to go over some existing room buildings. Wouldn't that be obnoxiously high and break the theming of the resort (assuming it stays Caribbean themed).
2. Has anyone seen any concept art for this? I wonder if the new hotel building will now include a bigger water feature pool a la Aulani? After all, most of the new hotels in that area include multiple pool/slide/mini-golf type options.

Just curious.
