Based on the final election results, the Gavel was passed to Mayor Sidhu tonight.

The DTD Hotel is cancelled. Disney is not currently planning anything except some minor changes to the West end of DTD (Shops/Restaurants).

Eastern Gateway - good possibility of Disney submitting plans to the city in Mid-2019 based on comments from government, business and Disney sources, so On Hold is a good description.

I hope Eastern Gateway gets green light as soon as possible... the delay is such a bummer for parking and for the expansion of DCA. To think where they could be with DCA coming on the heals of Galaxy's Edge... now it will be several more years.
