      And there with the report of Casey 's Corner getting more seating, it and the Crystal Palace are getting expanded outdoor seating as part of the Plaza expansion.

      I wonder if these expanding seating areas are because of losing bench seating in the Plaza, or for preferred FP+ seating or for something like a replacement for the desert parties on the Tomorrowland Terrace.

        So I take it with the new hub design the Swan boats aren't coming back from their long referb.

          I don't see the tracks for the horse drawn carriage in the video. Is it possible they are getting rid of the carriages to save money?

            You can see them in the video. Still on the asphalt. But they are white, like ghosted into the drawing.

              Is there a time frame for the hub completion?

              I know it's a big project and WDW has had a track record of taking construction slow. But since they have already started on the expansion, I was wondering how long something like this would take?

                I read that it would not be complete until sometime in 2015.

                    Thanks Barbaraann!

                    Do we know if the moat will be drained for that entire period? Through the summer?

                      I suspect the whole moat is drained now because they are going work on the east/south and north west sides. Painting the castle and removing the Swan Boat dock. They can section of the moat to have water on one side or the other, but right now that wouldn't work out. They won't be doing both of those projects for ever and I suspect by summer at least part of the moat will be flowing again if not the whole thing.
