I agree about the new Yacht Club quick service, but I thought Geyser Point was really well done.Recent restaurant additions (Geyser Point, Market Ale and Compass) along with the concept art lead me to believe it'll be charmless, unthemed, and weirdly reminiscent of an airport bar and grill. I know they are well-intentioned and that the place could use a fixer upper, but these renovations are generic beyond belief. I feel like the recent initiative to update the resorts loses sight of what makes them friendly and unique. We'll see I guess.
Lol...that's not really VW is it? It's been 17 years but I hope I'm not really getting that old!So now Pop Century is Vista Waaayyyyyyy?
5 sentences of an article...a couple of frames of concept art.....and some geniuses have already come to the conclusion that it's terrible.
Brilliant! Glad I'm not taking advice from any of you seriously for my vacation plans.
Updating a resort from "South Pacific resort as imagined in 1971" to "South Pacific resort as imagined in 2014" is a step forward in my opinion. There's no reason the deluxe resorts should provide anything less than modern accommodations, no matter what the theme. "Muh theming" is just an excuse to cling to old, ugly, outdated decor in the name of nostalgia.
It sounds like the Yacht Club just might not be your aesthetic. Yacht, Beach, Contemporary, Boardwalk, and even the Grand Floridian are resort hotels that are themed as... resort hotels. The "real" theming is at DAK Lodge, Wilderness Lodge, Polynesian, Fort Wilderness, and even most of the moderate resorts.It is incredibly boring and very pedestrian...I have said this before about whoever their interior design staff are nowadays, every space looks straight out of the Marriott school of hospitality playbook...
It is not the Disney Difference we were all raised on... The De-furbishment of The FLying Fish into a VERY plain restaurant interior has shown me they really don't understand thematic design at all.
