  • Hub Construction

    I heard that last night they started major construction in the hub. They're widening the walkways by several feet by making the planters smaller and moving large trees. My friend said the project will last a few days but no longer than a week.

    Removing the trees in the hub would greatly help the line of site for the R...DCT for much of Main Street. If this (construction rumour) is true, It would probably have everything to do with viewing and capacity issues.

      They are going to ruin the Hub trying to suit that show. I swear DL never learns from it's mistakes.

        No, it sounded like they're not removing the trees, just shifting them a bit in the outside planters circling the hub to make room for larger sidewalks.

          Trees are very easy to replace. These particular trees have not been there that long.

            I'm just talking about changing things around to suit a show. I wasn't a big fan of when they changed the trees for better fireworks viewing the first time and now they are doing it again. But I can't stop change so...

              We were there yesterday and I saw no evidence of any construction around the hub.

                Perhaps one's confusing the Grotto construction? I dunno

                  Yes they compeltely ruined the Rivers of America by adding tiered seating levels for Fantasmic, oh wait... that was a very good thing Sorry, I disagree, it's not like the trees in the hub are historic, monumental, or provide very much shade anyway.

                    When did they add tiered seating levels for Fantasmic? That is so lame!!! I hate how they change the look of the park for shows!! I love the atmosphere far more than any show, even Fantasmic!

                      Any trimming or replacing of trees in the hub also have to do with the view of the castle. When they get too big, they trim them back so you can see the castle from Main St.

                        Things change. Disneyland will never be truly finished, anyway. If more people will be able to enjoy the fireworks, I say rip those trees out! They can always plant more later.

                          The fact that you havent even noticed that they made this improvement testifies that it was done discretly and with care as to not make NOS look like an ampitheater. Pay extra care next time, to notice the mult-leveled walkways in front of the Rivers of America and youll see that the integrity of the New Orleans architecture & its asthetics have been preserved while providing additional viewing space.
                          The only reason we know about or notice these other changes is because of this message board. Otherwise the improvements would prceed without 80% of us knowing about it or even noticing it the next time we visit the park.

                            No longer than 1 week? I've not known any "major construction" project to be over and done with in a week. Sounds more like pruning to me.

                            Oh wait, maybe they used a different construction company than they did for Space Mtn?

                              Are you talking about the walkway in the middle of the RoA walkway that is about two feet higher than the rest? Because that's been there forever. I thought you where talking about actual tier benches or seating.
