  • BW, CR, AKV, Toy Story Mania update pics (by Denise

    I have photos here:

    http://www.mousesteps.com/index.php?...d=34&Itemid=65

    My photos actually start (on the website) with photos of the soft opening of the Velcro show at Innoventions. Then I went onto the Boardwalk (which is still having work done), Toy Story Mania, the Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas, and the Contemporary. The last photo here is of the area at the CR that is slated to become a coffeehouse (or so I'm told). There doesn't seem to be an exact date on that.

    Great pics!

    I loved the interior of the Contemporary when I was there over the holidays. I'm torn about the new addition though. It's going to change the hierarchy of that resort forever and the A-frame is so iconic. I'm all for progress and expansion, but I'm not so sure a tower addition was the best idea. Maybe I'll be wrong and it will look amazing. I'm still holding out hope.

      I don't really like the sitting area decor in the lobby, but I'm glad they did update it (and the outfits of those working there). It looks classier.

      I don't really like the idea of a huge tower either - but I can't judge something until it's done. I remember being concerned about the WLV, and that project turned out nicely.

        I'm sure everyone has seen this image of the addition, right? That's why it concerns me.

          Yup, that has been out for a while. I'd rather have them build something smaller, but we'll see how it looks when done.

            Another awesome update. It will be interesting to see how the new extension turns out.

              Good morning, son
              In twenty years from now
              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                I think they are going to make a walkway.

                Glad you liked the lobby photos!

                  Ya know, it makes sense now. When I was checking out the new gift shop on the concourse level, I wondered why they left so much space between it and the clothing shop next to it. I wondered this because the new shop was quite narrow and the space outside was quite wide.

                  But, with the new DVC connection, there will be a LOT of people flowing into the concourse right there to get to the monorail, restaurants and shops. So, that width is going to be necessary.

                    If they'd have really been worried about space, I think they'd have left the concourse free of a big shop! I thought the space was nicer as a "canyon". I actually find the area on each side too narrow if hundreds more people will be flowing through it.

                      Don't forget the single-width escalator up to the monorail that never seems to queue properly.

                      They appear to be more interested in building shops than anything these days. While the new shop is fun, it doesn't really sell anything unique. I miss the days when most of the shops had unique items. It you wanted something specific, you had to go to a certain shop. For me, it seems like every store having the same merchandise hurts them. People think, "oh I'll just get it later since every shop has it", and then they might forget or change their mind. If they see something, want it, and know no one else has it, they'd be more likely to buy it on the spot. At least that's my thinking. he he!

                        Thanks for the update and the great pics! I'm sure the new Contemporary Tower will be dwarfing the old one very soon.

                          If I want unique shops now, I go to Epcot.

                          Mike - definitely, the building is going to be HUGE! How can you even call the main building the "tower" anymore?
