Wow!

Great footage. I had no idea they'd sit there that long unattended. Is there an official story on the legendary years buildings?

Thanks for posting the link to the video. It is kind of sad how it looks. I wonder if anyone reading this is in construction and whether or not they think that they could just pick up where they left off if they decided that they needed the additional rooms.

That was an awesome video. I felt like I was a spy while watching it, going to forbidden territory.

Thank you.

We love Pop, and we hope they finish it soon.

Yeah.. it's too bad really...

All that's done so far are the main hall and two three building wings. As you saw in the video.. most of those rooms are completely unfinished ...

that video is so cool!!!!!

especially inside the room itself, and walking behind the decades

creepy, too - like seeing the bombed-out ruins of an old, long-ago, deserted ghost town of a resort (not a resort that hasn't been built yet)

thanks so much for sharing!

Interesting. I especially liked the extra touch of the bug walking across the screen in the room.

It is a shame that it is just sitting there and not being completed. By the time they work out all of the legal issues and start building again, the condition of some of the completed construction will be somewhat deteriorated and will have to be torn down and restarted.

You noticed that too? Hahahaha.. At first I was like "Is that a giant bug on the wall?"

What legal issues are you referring to? I'm not aware of any legal issues that are a hold up with the construction.

Sad and depressing. Not all all "Disney-like".

The MiceAge column by Kevin Yee this week talks ALL about everything BUT the Legendary Years.. He covers River Country and all kinds of other 'abandoned' Disney.

Spooky.

Did anyone else notice that the putside floors seem uneven? I'm pretty sure it wasn't the railings that were uneven. It looked like the levels actually were warped towards the middle.

It looked like there was mold on the walls, too. The whole place is in poor shape and is depressing. I wish WDW would either commit to rebuilding it (starting from scratch, if necessary), or tear it all down. It's an eyesore.

If the second half of Pop Century is ever built, I think that it would be a fun resort.

Actually no that's the railings. The railings are just pieces of 2x2 wood nailed together and some of the nails have fallen out. Those are NOT the metal railings that exist on the 'finished' versions of the buildings.

The interior of the buildings is just concrete. No wallboard, no carpet etc. A good sandblasting and chemical treatment would prepare what stands today for further construction -- assuming the structural integrity of the buildings remains solid.
