This is going to make the hub so more enjoyable. You will actually be able to navigate without being elbow to elbow with other people.

I like the little castle themed additions.

However, I don't like that the table seating near the water appears to be going away.

Rose Garden path is not in that, guess it's going away?

I think it's a great idea!

From following the hub expansion on another board; the expansion of the hub will either change the slope down to the water making meeting ADA requirements nearly impossible, or it isn't ADA compliant presently and Disney will lose that area being ADA grandfathered, so the water front stuff will be remove altogether.

Interesting that Disney's release doesn't really show the two new paths opposite the castle and what of the moat that they will cover.

Here is a mockup someone else has done based on the leaked plans. Disney's shows less green space kept.

The picture the OP posted is just a screenshot from the video. As the video continues, they zoom out and you can see those paths.

that picture is a mockup based on the info given prior to the official announcement I would use disneys picture instead of the mockup much more accurate.

should definitely improve traffic flow and provide better/increased viewing for Wishes (as well as the castle shows throughout the day). it just makes a lot of sense - and things that that make a lot sense rarely happens.

Are you talking about the water around the tomorrowland and castle area?

Paging Tom Morrow 02-28-2014 11:32 AM

Thought I'd provide some perspective.

How are they going to actually be working on this? Is it something they're doing at night or will the Hub just be closed down or will it just be done in small sections?
