Wow that ll be weird to just be able to access the Hungry Bear restrooms right off of a path. Definitely drastically changes the ambiance of what was formerly the lower level of the restaurant. That was one of my favorite spots to eat as a kid.

While the cut out for the restroom wasn't expected, but I think it was expected this path would change the ambiance to Hungry Bear. At least for me it was expected. :)

Oh it was absolutely expected. When they first announced SWL, believe it or not this was one of the first things I thought of.

There isn't that much to do.. finish rock work, paint, fill the river in the back. I can't imagine it wouldn't be done by mid June. That's 2.5 months.
I think it's highly unlikely that the river and island will be open to guests before Fan!! opens and multiple sources are telling me that they are fighting to get Fan!! up in JULY. Maybe you have sources that are reporting other information.

Not as we knew it. There's no more quiet waterside dining. There's now this broad ramp that now leads to the cutout to the restrooms between the dining area and the river. Even the upper level will be impacted by the ramp, especially at the Southern end.
Oh really? I was assuming there was no more dining on the lower level. How much of the river did they carve out for the path if there is room for the new path and the dining on the lower level?

How will the upper level be effected?

Just admit that you don't have any sources telling you anything because you are actually Bob Iger (in disguise) on this forum looking for people criticizing you and your colleagues. :p

Wow. If you think I'm defending Iger or Disney management, boy do you have that wrong. It would take volumes to contain my criticism of Disney management.

But I do have good sources. And I generally don't claim to know more than I do, and if I'm proven wrong (which I have been, on occasion) I freely admit it.

Here are two things that I'm sure of. DLRR will not start testing until Sept. and Fan!! is fighting to open in July. This information is based on first-hand accounts. There is a lot of work to be done on the riverfront before it reopens to guest traffic. If you have better information, please feel free to share it with us.

I haven't actually looked at the lower level since they opened the new ramp (although I hope to this week). But from the photograph upthread it appears that there are still tables. And if there isn't anymore dining on the lower level, is it just vacant space? The new path is clearly outside the existing boundaries of the lower level.

Your guess is better than mine. I have a hard time making sense of the construction pics.
