I wasn't around here for DCA....was Disney pretty vocal in regards to construction for that?I just wish Disney would do all these things in congress, like they did for DCA. I want that sort of buzz for the park- transparent talk about the updates they are making, the progress that's coming, and just more information on the project at hand.
Keeping this quiet is a disservice to the park.
Discovery Island definitely is due for a makeover.The Facebook post title cut off after "Disney's". My hopes got all up thinking it was going to be a destination dining location on Discovery Island in Bay Lake. Way to show my age, right?
Doing ANYTHING on that Island would take a ton of work as right now, nature has taken over. All sorts of wildlife have made their home there and it would be a lengthy process to try and remove all of it. I highly doubt they will ever do anything there again. They have too many other land choices that will be a lot cheaper.Discovery Island definitely is due for a makeover.
how big is it? could it be turned into a restaurant, spa, maybe an adults only pool.
if discovery island isn't big enough, maybe river country could be made over into the spa, pool complex,
then use discovery island for something else, like you said a destination restaurant, or ideally something more interesting like what was there previously. as there are only so many ways to make a restaurant unique
kind of like the adults only areas they have on the cruise ships
also access is an issue in using Discovery Island for anything that they would want to be a commercial venture,Doing ANYTHING on that Island would take a ton of work as right now, nature has taken over.

They had a big announcement about the general concept of rebuilding much of the park including some major goals of the project (Mickey's Fun Wheel, The Little Mermaid, Cars Land, Buena Vista Street) in 2007 as work was about to begin. This was the sort of very forward looking presentation with big promises not seen since the Disney Decade announcements. Pressure from the City of Anaheim was a sizable factor as some council members were supportive of some proposed zoning changes to allow residences within the Anaheim Resort District. There was displeasure with Disney, who concocted the resort district idea, over the failure of Disney's California Adventure and lack of serious interest in fixing the park, and thus deliver on promised tax revenues. Due to the housing bust the project probably never would have happened, and without that pressure from the City I do not think they would have announced and gone through with as much as they did. Addressing the issues at Disney's Animal Kingdom seem to stem more from keeping Cameron around and therefore there is no incentive to publicly commit to anything.I wasn't around here for DCA....was Disney pretty vocal in regards to construction for that?
