I don't think the fountain area is going to open until '12 with BVS. The Imagineers explicitly said they wanna reveal it all at once. I mean look at the pump house, it's essentially done and finished with landscaping done by it yet it still remains behind walls. I think BVS is something they don't wanna offer a little peek at, they wanna wait for a big reveal. I mean they're taking the worse entrance to a Disney park (honestly Sunshine Plaza sucked; Americana, The Grove, Fashion Island, Irvine Spectrum, etc...all have better theming and appeal than Sunshine Plaza did) and turning it into a hyper-themed, extensively researched, new generation, and totally unique entrance. That deserves a big reveal.
And TreoFred I'm a bit confused by your post. So was it really all blueprint and approved for El Camino Real?
