My sister is a CM at the Bengal BBQ. She told me last week that it's not closing. But, her husband at the River Belle Terrace, said that what's going on there wasn't so clear. Anyway, I hope this clears some things up!
I was at the park this morning. Construction walls went up outside the Riverbelle Terrace on the side facing ROA. I went around the Adventureland Side to take a look and very pleasantly noted that nothing on that side of it, including the Bengal Barbeque has been walled off. Now I don't know if this means that this will happen in a phase at some point in the future, but as of this moment they are doing nothing with it -- at least in relation to the facade.
i posted this in the last "OMG Bengal is Closing" Thread.....

Bengal will not be closing with this rehab. The second floor rehab was first discussed almost 2 years ago, but still has yet to be approve fiscally. Don't worry.....Bengal's closure will be announced...or at least there will be bragging about the second floor dining for Riverbelle and the new possibilities with Fantasmic...but without the money approved for it, nothing will be happening anytime too soon.
So don't fret weary adventurer's! There will still be an outpost to refresh and recharge during your jungle treks! well....for the time being anyway.
