    Is it safe to assume that the old American Adventure restrooms have closed, now that the new ones are open? Or will the old ones remain as well?

    “I really like the detail going into this building, but I do worry about the closing off of this pavilion. Having the lagoon right there but not being able to see it anymore is kind of a shame.”

    That was my first reaction as well, but I think if we look at all the accolades given to the placemaking at Harry Potter at IOA, and of course various places in Disneyland, what we come away with is that having big open vistas is not necessarily a good thing. Being completely enclosed by a theme tends to elicit greater feelings of immersion and “charm” in the guest.

  • I’m so excited for Food and Wine Festival, always a highlight of my year. I’ll be at the MiceChat event on the 18th. Can’t wait!

    Thanks for a wonderful intro into the food and wine festival Cory, I always look forward to your updates from any park, as I’ve not yet been to WDW myself, it gives me my weekly fill until I finally get there one day!
    Some incredible photos this week, the Empty Epcot one of the bridge is wonderful, but the mirrored ‘leg’ of SSE shot is just breathtaking. Something really special about that shot, well done!
    That small, tiny nod to Communicore is cool, it is just so pointless that Disney does not reintroduce those icons back into Epcot (and make similar new ones for TT etc). They are so visually perfect, easily recognisable, and easily followed on maps and signs. I hope one day to see that Epcot reintroduces those symbols and signage, and in FW makes the fonts the same again.
    Thanks again, until next week, have a wonderful week! -Q

    I’m at Food and Wine now. Scotland has some of the best food. Both of their dishes are strong.
    Vegetarian haggis and salmon are delicious. But the real winner is the chocolate whiskey tart with shortbread and sweet cream. Delicious! Looking forward to the Go Gos tomorrow.
