  • [Question] What is being constructed along Ball road?

    The other day I noticed that they were doing some earth-moving Northwest of M&F parking structure.
    Does anybody here know what they are building? Is this now Disney Property?

    Interesting. What does that white sign on the near contruction fence say?

    It's next to the ball cast parking so it could be an extentions of Disney property. But with the work there and not opening up the area between the existing parking I'd guess not.

      Hmm, it's too small to be a staff lot extension. I'd bet on it being another restaurant or maybe a gas station.

        That was the site of the old Cattleman's Wharf restaurant. The restaurant closed years ago and was for sale for awhile, but was condemned and fenced off several years ago. It sat there in deepening neglect. But back in the 1970's and 80's it was a "fancy restaurant" with a big party room and was the site of many famous and infamous Cast Member banquets and dinner dances. Maybe it's being turned into more parking? The BCML parking has overflowed several times this holiday season, sending CM's to park in the neighborhoods nearby instead.

          I'm pretty sure that is a location for a New Motel cause I remember walking passed that fence off area last year when exiting M&F. I saw a sign that said something about a motel coming soon.

            Thanks SoCalbma for the 411. It makes sense too since right now there's a huge accommodations boom brought on by Cars Land.

                Thanks.
                Yeah, I remember the Cattleman's Wharf.
                Too bad they are not building a new restaurant there, but I guess Motels are more lucrative?

                  It a large property, enough to add a couple hundred spots to the BCML. Bigger than most of the lots that the hotels on Harbor are on. Still unless they were pulling out the trees and fence I wouldn't guess it be more parking.

                  Sounds plausible, although after a year plans could of changed. A restaurant would be possible. A gas station is unlikely since unless built in front of a grocery store, they are usually built on corner lots.

                  It looks like the old sign is still along Ball. I think that sign directs people to the Holiday Inn on Walnut, north of the Mickey and Friends Garage. It would be kind of wierd to build say a Best Western with a Holiday Inn sign in front.
