Something new happening? Or routine maintenance...
 
Happened to look across the lake last week as the monorail was pulling into the Magic kingdom station, and noticed what appeared to be site work occuring on that spit of land between the water bridge and the TTC. Maybe they were just clearing brush, I couldn't tell. Maybe it's part of a new walkway to the TTC? LOL!
Talking about this area:

There've been a lot of rumors about a new resort in the area and but nothing recently. Rumors were the ground with too soft to build anything but I'm sure there's a solution if enough money is when available.

I'm sure they will explore that idea :cool1:

We noticed that they were doing similar work clearing brush in that area about a year ago. We asked one of the boat CMs and he said he thought it was to allow better line of sight for boats. Seemed logical at the time.......

That would be a perfect location for a new MK resort! Especially to view wishes! :)

We'll see...

Who thinks that the area may be future addition of a Polynesian DVC property!? :rotfl:

I think that will be to the left of the Poly. The area in question is too large and too far away. As far as too soft--- nothing is too soft to jet in pylings.

Wasn't that the proposed site for the Venice themed resort back in the 70's?
Maybe that old idea has finally resurfaced!

Extra deep and extra wide. :)

Seriously, they were able to overcome similar issues (with watershed, with water table, and with "soft" acreage) with the BLT building. They've got some experience, now, with doing this type of thing. It may have been more of a problem 20 years ago...but with new construction techniques...it's not really as much of an issue, now.

Roughly.

I think it's too early to say whether it's that idea, another, or any idea at all. It's physically possible....but theme/purpose/etc is anyone's guess at this point

Every time we ride the bus into MK I wonder why they don't do something with the open space to the left of the bus area. (between Contemporary and the lake) It seems to have lovely white sand beach... Perhaps this space would be utilized with development in the area indicated on the map?

They've been thinning the undergrowth around Seven Seas Lagoon for a while now. In October they were working on the island near GF removing trees and scrub. Really made it look very nice. A couple of months earlier they did the same on the central island. This is just maintenance not a build.

They were flying sight balloons for a couple months.
I forget if it was last year or earlier this year.

The height of the ones we saw, would be for at least a 5 story building.

I head from the bus driver it is going to be the dock for the DVC cruise ship.
