Generation Gap Bridge-Will The Wall Come Tumblin' Down?

I am at Pop Century and have spoken with several CMs and the general consensus is that there is nothing official,but that there is a good possibility the "wall" will come down Thursday.

However,I did speak with one CM(and only one) who was positive the "wall" will not come down until The Little Mermaid section is complete.

At any rate,it is so exciting to be here to FINALLY see the original project "completed" and I will be eating at Landscape of Flavors Thursday!

I think that after almost nine years of the "Wall",Disney needs to go ahead and bring it down Thursday!

Smile I agree as long it is safe to do!

If there is any serious construction going on it needs to be fenced off to prevent accidents. If that is the case, then the wall can come down between the resorts. Last year when we were at POP we would walk over to see the construction at the bridge. It'll be great to connect the 2 resorts!

I'm checking in at Pop one week from today and I am hoping hoping hoping the bridge goes across!! I'm going with my neighbors, whose two year old I babysit, and I know he will adore the theming of AoA. I want to walk him over there so badly! I will keep you posted as to the bridge situation next week.

the AoA pools are fenced in and require a KTTW card to get in specifically to keep the "popp'n" folk out

AoA's main pool (the only one opening right now, I think) is fenced, and you will need a room key to get in.

So the "sister resort" thing isn't going to apply to these two, I guess?

I just figured it would be coming down when the AoA opens in a few days

I've been wondering and wondering about this and am really hoping it happens sooner rather than later. It would be so great to stroll over to AoA for other dining options. I'm also a runner and would love to run all around the lake.

I hope that the CMs who say Thursday are correct. I was afraid it might not happen until after LM opens which will be after we're there in August!

Keep us posted, please!

Nope. They are two separate resorts with separate pools and separate busses. No sharing allowed other than the food courts which are open to everyone.

Im pretty psyched to check out AoA's FC while we're at Pop, as well as the resort itself

I spoke with another CM this AM who had just been touring over at AoA recently and they were POSITIVE the Wall was coming down Thursday,but,again only Thursday will tell.

I would think all construction will have to be over before they open up the entire Hourglass Lake "loop walkway",but,I agree,that is going to be an amazing running route-one of the best on property.

All of the POP Cast and Guests are commenting on how it is going to "feel" like one huge Resort(even though the Pools are resort restricted).

I wil be checking on how the buses situation is handled Thursday.

Good times here at WDW!

Help me out ... I don't know of this wall you speak of ...

So, were the old abandoned POP buildings use to create AoA? I thought AoA was a new build

Sounds like it will be like the relationship between "Beach/Yacht" and "Boardwalk" - adjacent to one another, easily accessible, happy to have you stop by and patronize their offerings, but not sisters.

Some are new and some are the old Pop buildings.

They are talking about opening up the bridge between Pop and AOA so that guests can walk between the two resorts.
