    New Hub Less Moat

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: New Hub Less Moat

    Are they filling in part of the moat? Or are they going to build over it and let it flow the same way?

    The million dollar question. I have not heard it if they released any more info.

    Swan Boat Dock gone! Wedding Planners are going to miss that spot.

    More construction walls up. Some of these are pretty tacky ones. Similar to those for road construction, cheap plastic fabric set in ground with timber type stakes.

    Re: New Hub Less Moat

    Taking out the meandering path through the rose garden... a favorite area of my wife's.

    Once complete, this might open up the hub, which is a nightmare during the evening when people are already lining up HOURS before the parade and fireworks (why people, WHY???). I can recall showing up for the Christmas party and people are already plopped down on the sidewalk, meanwhile they're trying to move people without wristbands out of the park, and those with bands are trying to get in. Bottleneck starts right at the ice cream parlor and is nearly impassable.

    Wondering about the timetable on this project. It'll be a mess and an eyesore during construction, even in phases. But if it's taking them over three years to install one stupid mine car ride, how long for a major overhaul like this?

    Re: New Hub Less Moat

    Here is a link to some of the iciness. I can't remember off hand where I saw worse ones. This week they added those cheap plastic cloth stapled to wooden sticks to the normal construction walls that were already up.
    The 3 cranes as of today are still working on the castle repairs. That they seem to be making progess on and they do lower the cranes for the evening shows. The moat construction work is now also going on during the daytime hours and is heard through the parade. Joy Joy

    I have not seen a completion date projection for hub/moat reconstruction.
