Photo update as of Monday, August 29. Sometime ago, these tiles were added to the four insets on the second level escalator platform at the Lime Garage, as well as above the two elevator doors.

thanks for the photos @WDWtraveler, question. How good is the illumination at night?

Origins and Luxury of Time recently opened in the Town Center. Not sure of exact dates but both were walled off last week.

I doubt it would be anything todo with fire protection, or they would not have been allowed to open.
I do not work in this area or have any knowledge way a full certificate of occupancy was not issues on this job. I can tell you that I have had project given a conditional certificate of occupancy for fire protection if the owner agreed to provide a 24/7 fire watch. A local security company was hire to have someone walking the halls of the building until the final system came on line, So it can happen for short periods of time if the government issuing the certificate of occupancy wants it to for some reason.

Wasn't it known as 365 Days of Christmas? The lack of 365 (though it would be 366 this year, I suppose) seems weird.
Maybe thats the issue. They wanted to remove the days so it could count on leap and other type of years ;)

I don't recall it being 365 Days of Christmas. The sign and area had little pull-off calendar pages around it but I don't ever remember seeing a "365" on the sign.

You may be right about that, perhaps I just always gave it that name just due to the pull off calendar?

Photo update as of Thursday, March 1, 2018. Construction walls have reappeared on both sides of the former Pleasure Island bridge. From the scaffolding on the left side of the photo (and other scaffolding positioned under the bridge), and the fact that the stringed light bulbs have been removed from the bridge arches, it appears the bridge will be repainted soon.

Photo update as of Friday, March 16, 2018. Here is the new color scheme for the old Pleasure Island bridge. The above grade structure is a dark gray, with a blue/green hue (the color is much darker and grayer than in the photo). The beam at the base of the bridge is painted black, with all the understructure black also. This is the only section that is painted. The remaining parts of the bridge still have scaffolding and are covered with beige construction cloth to hide the ongoing work.

Is there any hope of the cheesecake factory coming to Disney Springs? I do love that restaurant and seeing it in Disney Town in Shanghai gave me some hope!
