I also hope new restaurants would mean a wider variety of cuisine, AKA, different ethnic cuisines that haven't been featured at DTD yet. Of course, YMMV.

They are supposed to have some new trenD stuff in the new marketplace co op. Also in there they will have a create your own cell phone case type thing.

I'm staying at SSR 5/09 and I requested Congress Park so I could easily walk over to Downtown Disney (which I have never done, even though DH and I go to DD constantly on our trips). Given the construction, do you think I'll be dealing with a lot of noise? Or is the whole project too early stages for that to be an issue?

they have started the work on the bridge between Saratoga and DTD I'm not sure how much noise you will be experiencing tho I would maybe check the resort boards for more info on that.

There are some video updates on YouTube. The bridge abutments are under way and the piles appear to be driven. The pile driving would be the noisy part but from what I cans see, this will be done by May 9th. I used to build bridges for a living so I have some background to make that assessment. We love DD as well which is why we bought our DVC at SSR. We are head down on 5/10 and I'm hoping things are starting to take shape when we visit.

While it will be good to see some new things, I have to say that I'm extremely depressed about losing one of my family's favorite places - the Margarita Bar along the waterfront by Captain Jack's. Our routine every trip was to check in at Old Key West and take the boat over and start the vacation with some of the best (read strongest!) drinks around. One of my favorite times there happened last June on a rainy afternoon when a couple of us sat there for hours, sipping rum runners and listening to the live music. We will REALLY miss this :-(

This might old news but the margarita bar is closing? That is a shame.
