    Post Greatest decade resort....

    Ok I got to find out if this has be discussed before.

    I stayed at the pop century resort and across a foot bridge which was obviously closed, (although it was a beautiful bridge!!!!!!,) there was a resort which the main area was constructed.
    I did not risk being WDW-Banned for life by going into a restricted area but I was curious. Now i have seen that there is some video on the web of it. I have heard they train transportation drivers there int the parking lot.

    Just curious and want to see whom has any links to media about it.

    When I went to Disney for the first time there was a Magic I felt. I could do anything or be anything. No feeling would ever top this......

    Then I took my daughter.

    It was originally planned as Pop Century's "Legendary Years" Resort (1900-1940), but developement was, supposedly, halted after the tourism fall-off of post 9/11.
    The developement has now been reinitiated as Disney's Art of Animation Resort, scheduled to open summer of 2012.
    There's already another thread on here about it somewhere.

    Oh...
    And I think the bridge was originally called "Generation Gap Bridge", or somethin' like that...not sure what they'll call it now.
    They should have a bridge renaming contest...I have a few ideas...!

    How about "the bridge of concept abandonment."

    The bridge is still called Generation Gap Bridge. Its a great place just to relax after a long day at the parks. I have pictures from the room I had at Pop when we stayed in June and from the bridge. I will post them once I find them.
