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.

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.

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

There is no grandfathered ADA thing going on when they do this much. ALL of it will have to meet ADA requirements now.

Where is the Partner's statue in the new plan? Have they moved it or is it just the way they have rendered the image?

Man this construction really upsets the wife and I. I just can't believe that the spot where I proposed to her in the rose garden is going to be gone forever. I just figured it would safely be there for good since it's so central to the park. I understand the reasoning for it but doesn't take some of the pain and disappointment out. Glad we at least got to show our kids on our last trip where it happened.
