It would be interesting draw to DTD if they did a show in the Lagoon behind DTD, you would have views from SSR and DTD....

As mentioned, it would bring in large numbers of people from on site and off site, but transportation could be a nightmare. There is limited parking as it is and you would need extra busses running. Where would they take everyone to for views of it, etc. Plus, would the ferries/rental boats from POR, OKW and SSR be impacted by the elements of the show being in the water....I presume that they have to be somewhat near the surface? Maybe a watered down (hehe) version could be cool that happened every hour or something?

Sources say that there will be 5 impressive water fountains installed along the PI/West Side shoreline of Village Lake. But it's not possible to do the things they're doing at Disney California Adventure because Village Lake is a live lake with plant and animal life. And the DCA show is a ticketed event; they're not going to give that away for free at Hyperion Wharf!

The demolition of Motion is about 50% complete and the demolition of Rock'n'Roll Beach Club has begun but is moving at a slower pace. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the outdoor, waterfront seating area is supposed to be open by this summer. The paper questions who is going to be using it though, since a similar area on the West Side stays largely empty.

With both Rock'n'Roll Beach Club and Motion both demolished and the debris mostly removed, work now is concentrating on site preparation for the outdoor amphitheater and rumored fast-food kiosk. Latest pics at:

Any chance of a Disney themed Chili's??? That would be sooo cool. If not maybe a Taco Bell? Either with with the 3 Calebellero's! Maybe an Aladdin themed gyros restaurant ...

OK, good idea, the Taco Bell and the Gyro restaurant, don't care much for Chilis, though. Maybe it's because the one here by us sucks.....in many ways.

The only restaurant semi-announced so far is the Mahogany Bay Classic Old Boats and Great Food restaurant. That was in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Whether it comes to fruition remains to be seen.

Taco Bell....no way. Del Taco.....now you're talking!

Hey Bob, is Del Taco that much better? Don't have one in our area. I'll have to try it next time we are in Orlando, as much I do not care to leave Disney property, other than to go back home that is......

Let's get some original restaurants instead of these stupid chains! Most of us have a Chili's and Taco Bell at home. We want something very different and unique when on vacation!

Margaritaville is already at Citiwalk...for all we know there is a clause in the contract preventing them...

Just to clear anything up, there's a whole lot of sarcasm going on. NO ONE wants to see another chain restaurant in Disney. Kungaloosh!
