I don't know what this may entail.

Despite the brial portraits, I think the moat is very pretty to look at and makes the castle more magical when you are in the park.
I'm willing to put up a stupid amount of money on the other side of this bet if anybody's interested.

This is standard "paint the moat and fix the cracks" refurbishment, folks. Don't get your panties in a wad. Happens about every 4-5 years.

You are correct according to wdwmagic.com it is a standard moat refurbishment staring this week. There is no timetable for how long it is.

In this discussion of this on the WDW Magic boards some reliable sources have indicated that there will be modifications to the moat but they won't be eliminated completely. Sounds like this might be part of the large hub refresh project and not just regular maintenance.

I could NOT ever see that moat being drained permanently. Standard refurbishing, with maybe some slight modifications at most to the general layout.

Wilson Flyer - you dont have to be such a jerk about it and a sexist pig.

The reason I posted this was because an employee of Disney who works for Disney Photography said the moat was to be drained PERMANENTLY TO MAKE ROOM FOR MORE GUESTS. I would not have posted anything if they said it was a standard refurb project.

I'm not exactly sure WDWmagic.com may have some stuff on it but not positive. There has been a lot of concrete work on main street especially. They are eliminating a lot of planters and pouring a lot of new concrete making areas wider to hold more people. Several areas throughout main street have already been completed and some are going on as we speak. It's main purpose to eliminate bottlenecks and create more room for fireworks, and peak crowds.

if you want more info on the moat go check this thread out on WDWmagic.com it really has a lot of info on it. It looks like they will be expanding walkways around the hub and give the area more ease of access. Disney is really doing a lot of walkway, and viewing area work.

Please let this just be a refurb. Sounds like they are just trying to stuff as many people in as possible... Please say it isn't so!

I don't see anything in Wilson Flyer's post that would label him a "jerk" or "sexist pig". Relax, your stressing over a ditch full (or not full) of water. lol
