There are no skycrapers in Orlando. So.. Spiderman would be faceplanting more than usual...
Cant wait to see him spread the costs of a new carrier during war times into multiple years for "cost efficiency and wall street". Or cost cutting bridge and infrastructure building to bare minimums..
A permit was filed today for a new "overlook" off of the bridge over hourglass lake at Art of Animation. Note that the structure doesn't come out at a right angle from the bridge, it is angled a bit which would aim it towards the southern gondola station at CBR. It appears that this is the AOA/Pop gondola station.
So in the permit, was the entire structure called an "overlook", or just a certain part of it?
Nice find Dan! So as many had guessed, the station will be at the bridge not the upper parking lot.
That's the perfect spot for it... very accessible from everywhere in both resorts, and it makes the people in the preferred rooms feel like they're getting their money's worth.
And the lake is kind of a built-in right of way, so the vertical climb can be fairly gentle until it reaches a necessary clearance height for Century Drive to the north.
I am a little surprised that they are going over water, but I like it!!
Not sure if this has been asked yet but do you think there will be a CM on each gondola just "in case" anything happens like the gondola suddenly stopping somewhere?
Haha..."Overlook"...now they're just insulting our intelligence.
I think this could still be a monorail expansion. This is no proof it has to be gondolas
well I hear some of the ESPN folks may be looking for gigs so....
The entire structure.
If they want to serve the entirety of both resorts, and are only going to build one station, this is the most logical place to build it.
There's probably going to be between 70-90 cabins on each line so I don't think that's going to possible....
I highly doubt it. That would require a lot of CMs, and they did find that necessary for the skyway.
Here is an updated map with the AOA/Pop structure.
Using the CBR permit, the yellow does right down the center of where they are building the access road and hits hourglass lake exactly where the line I projected from the AOA/Pop station did, so everything lines up.
Awesome work! Kudos to you sir!
