Photo update as of Tuesday, March 1. The Flame Tree Barbeque dining pavilions closest to the main Discovery Island pathway are being refurbished. The restaurant is still open, but the construction walls installed right up to the window queues give an initial appearance it is closed.

Photo update as of Wednesday, Nov. 9. Decorative animal carvings are being added to the gazebo. Only about half way around the perimeter so far.

Saw this in person a few days ago, and I don't think the pictures capture the size of this gazebo...it's huge! I agree it's taken a while, but even looking just over the walls, I'd say this is going to provide quite the dramatic change when the walls finally come down.

Is it not amazing that the park which is run like WDW USED to be can get things open in the timeframes WDW used to operate on, Yet the 'Financial Engineering' park can't build a gazebo in less than two years...

It's true, the Gazebo is very tall and it is lovely, but in my town they broke ground on an apartment building about the same time they started building this gazebo... The 8 story, 96 unit building is almost complete......much like this dining gazebo ... it does make it kind of funny....

Well like I pointed out a few pages back. The chocolate Factory restaurant at universal was announced, constructed and has been open for 2 months now in the time it's taken to build the gazebo.
