Oooh everytime this thread pops up, I'm hoping it's news about what will replace Stitch's Great Escape...

The pond looks finished but I hope the landscaping isn't. The grass should look like golf course grass on approach to the MK. IMO.

Maybe some topiary gardens that hint at what will be in the park.
I concur--I think Disney topiary work can be really nice, like the trees in Disneyland Paris

They didn't backfill or paint the retaining walls?! I'm sorry, but that looks like @ss. 🙄
Would filling them in defeat the purpose of them retaining water, or, at least, prevent a wash out from a flow down the banks?

Actually, that alone would probably cause them to fill in over time.

You can bury them and they'd still function as intended, but sure - dirt would dislocate. It's not like they're holding back the surf though.

I was also expecting those walls to not be as visble in the finished product

Some small hedges in front would've helped

For its first 2–3 decades, WDW had animal-shaped topiaries dotted throughout the entire property. I’d love to see those return.
there is an out of print table book called Gardens of Walt Disney World that showcased a lot of that. The place use to be beautiful with things like this! It actually sickens me to look at that book anymore as they have just massacred everything that was once nice and incredible.

Hopefully those walls will be covered with simulated stone or something more decorative than concrete. Are they painted?

They are painted grey currently. Maybe they will change out some of the landscaping? Up near the tracks they still have some work to do. Though the track work still going on is holding that up.

Yes would be nice to see some topiaries. Like in the old days, or like the more modern color versions they use at Epcot.
