^^^^ So the Jim Hill article is full, 100% fact? Disney is actually going to go forward with it this time?
I'll believe it when I see it.
And a couple of years later we are still waiting. :no:
Wonder if all the tractor pads that were cancelled for WDW were going to be for the Suites. And could Legendary have been cancelled twice in the same decade do to economic stress. So Sad.

Nothing else, Lange is sure an excellent photographer.
They really need to find a way to get that puppy back in gear.
How much fun are those years gonna' be to prop-out and everything?! :yes: :D
i just dont get why you would build something like this and not maintenance it so you dont have to rework everything!! and now there going to start work again.. this is all nuts to me.. someone dropped the ball on this big time.. and i understnad work stalled after 9/11.. but that was in 2001.. what they havent seen time or found time to pick up the ball again
New update about Legacy Years. It is being replaced by a new Resort.
Here's the post tread:
Im a little sad that they arent continuing the original project though...
This announcement reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Lisa makes a doll to compete with Malibu Stacy. At the end of the show the Malibu Stacy doll is "updated" and this "new" Malibu Stacy outsells Lisa's very creative idea. The kicker is that what makes Malibu Stacy new is the updated doll now comes with a hat. This substitute for the Legendary years sounds just as uncreative. Way to abandon a plan, Disney. A resort themed from 4 movies...that idea sounds vaguely familiar....
Yeah its kinda like All Star Movies.....
Jim Hill reported on this long ago. The Classic years down the road in theory should be re-themed also since Pop doesn't draw as well as
All Star hotels.
Jim Hill : Monday Mouse Watch: Will Pop Century be rebranded as Disney's Animation Inn and Suites?
It's great to actually see signs of building again and great to see they are going to finish off 'Pop century' as a new resort.
it will be good to see things being completed... it bothers me when things are left unfinished... or completely abandoned... alla River Country...
... Ah! River Country!!... Wouldn't it be good to have something like that again?!...
