    T-Rex, CBR, BW, GF Update pics (by Denise)

    The day I took the Animal Kingdom/Polynesian/GF pics, (http://micechat.com/forums/showthrea..._ak-89211.html)

    I also did some update photos. They include the T-Rex restaurant - which is going up very quickly now, work at the Boardwalk, CBR, POFQ. Those are here:

    Some of them larger:























    Also, I wanted to mention that OFTEric has invited me (as well as some other sites) for the Pirates Adventure Dinner AND a tour of Universal this weekend. I'm really looking forward to it! I was asked this past week about Universal, and I hope to have many photos up on Sunday. (not photo walks of the resorts, but I will keep that in mind for this year). I also plan to get another update done (Disney) and work on the AK photo walk on Friday.

    Very nice as usual Denise!

    You may want to take some pictures of the Tree Houses since they will be going bye-bye soon I think.

    Thanks! The DI tree houses are going away? I hadn't heard that. From what I understood, Disney couldn't do anything else with that area if the tree houses were torn down.

    I'm not sure how close I could get to them now, I did get some pics from the walkway between OKW and DD last year. I miss the DI Villas!

    That's what I and a few other have been able to gather from a permit request. "Rehab and replacement."

    Awwww...I haven't seen that. I hope they rehab without replacing - it's nice having a small part of the old DI Villas still standing.

    As great as they may have been, those things are really run down. Surprising since people actually live in them!

    I agree that their location is prime. Also, if they decide to replace them, their replacement will have restrictions as the property is a protected wet land.

    That is what I had heard (about the wetland). I wasn't sure if it was true or rumor.

    The Fairway Villas weren't in perfect shape the last time I stayed, but I loved the rustic, quiet nature of the area. And they were great for anyone going golfing, the units were set up very nicely. The whole DI was like that - the fitness center too, very tranquil (not anymore). The DI used to be one of my favorite (top 3) places to stay on property.

    I would guess I'd get stopped by security if I walked on SS property past them. It'd be interesting to see the inside - I think I'd be happy living in them, even run down. It's still a great area on property.

    Thanks Dusty!!!

    I may try the boat ride too. Though I just stumbled upon the plans for the treehouses (I wasn't even looking) on another site, and it appears that they'll be similar to what was there before. Maybe a little smaller, but the shape looks the same. I don't get too upset over many things Disney does, but the DI was really special to me, and I hope they are rebuilding something similar.

    The proposals do seem very similar.

    I am surprised that the florida EPA will let them replace the treehouses. Especially since our new governor is so "environmental" these days. Updateing them and bringing them up to new building codes is one thing, but totally replacing them is another. I actually stayed in one in the early 80's it was nice then but I am sure they need lots of work now.

    It looks like the proposal is to build something a little smaller, maybe that is within regulations. If they are in very sorry shape, it's possible there is no way to rehab them.

    I think that they use them for the college program these days. Can you imagine putting guests in those things with today's ADA requirements?

    Also, getting back to your report. I can't believe how fast T-Rex is going up. I was just out there at the end of October and that whole area was just a clearing.

    I've heard that the tree houses are used for Internationals, but it's possible that they are used for a variety of onsite temp housing. If used for guests again, at least some would have to be redesigned. Like, the Fort Wilderness Cabins - not all are handicap accessible, but some are. I would guess that a percentage would need to be accessible, but not all.

    As far as T-Rex - I couldn't believe it. I was there in December, and it was dirt. I was not expecting to see a building there.
