BLD2018-05611Cleo Parking Structure - Magic Way Bridge and Ramp - New Commercial Construction: Pedestrian bridge 1,751 sq.ft and ramp 3,381 sq.ft
Have to love the fact that the ramp is twice as long as the bridge due to ADA laws.

Will be fun to use with all the strollers on it.
 
Will pedestrians be able to cross between Mickey & Friends and Cleo directly? Hoping access to the sky bridge is easy for everyone. I’m looking forward to a quicker, more pleasant, walk to the resort.

I think it’s silly Disney doesn’t just get rid of the trams and connect the structures directly with DTD via a series of elevated moving sidewalks. It works beautifully for USO.

As I understand it, yes there will be a walkway designed for the second level to connect the two structures and connect directly to the skybridge over Magic Way.

Disney wants as many people to walk instead of using trams, and is trying to make it as easy as possible.

No, Disney is NOT "trying to make it as easy as possible". If they were, they would use moving sidewalks like Universal Orlando.

And at least the second level has a dedicated pedestrian lane on the connecting bridge at the front (plaza side) of the structures. I assume this is true of every level.

Remember, twice the amount of cars, same amount of trams. Your choice. Wait in line or walk... Think more folks will be getting more exercise.
Exactly. This might work in the morning, as people arrive and want to get to the parks quickly. And that ramp from the bridge is downhill.

But at night after the fireworks, people will be less likely to walk all the way back to the structure and push their stroller up that ramp to the third floor. The trams will be a real mess regardless of time of day, but I expect them to be the worst at night after the fireworks/World of Color/Paint The Night/Fantasmic! all end.
 
well now with all the new offerings in tropical hideaway a good long walk might be good to help some people loose some pounds. nice healthy option besides sitting in a packed tram

There’s a disconnect. There’s no escalators to get from the upper levels to the second level. This means the pedestrians must return to the first level and then take escalators to the second level. When they return, the process is in reverse. Imagine doing this with strollers.

Hmmmm.

BLD2019-00018 Disney - Critter Country / Splash Mountain - Tenant Improvement: Create new door opening to lead to ride, securite gate, guards at selected locations, 100 sq.ft rock work (plaster).
 
"Securite" gate? Guards?

Is this for the entrance to Galaxy's Edge?
I would say no, it looks like backstage access from behind Splash to me. Permits for GE are labeled as "SW - DL Frontierland Expansion".

Also as of now there is no separate entrance for SW:GE. You have to go through the main gate like everyone else. ;)
