EXCELLENT POST SCURVY!!

FWIW, yes, it will have a "shark/sealife"-themed bar, with a giant octopus on the ceiling. Sounds vaguely cool (if also highly derivative of a similar bar at Sea World), but not sure you'd want to spend a whole night, let alone several nights in a row, there.
Will the octopus sing, dance, or tell jokes?
That ain't gonna happen! Disney would have to spend money to make that happen. They want somebody else to spend the money and hand the profits over to Disney.
I got the impression they're going for a more "realistic" vibe, so probably not. Then again, they have a "Build-a-cuddly-T Rexx" area, too, so maybe not that realistic.
Oh please! Couldn't it sing a couple of songs about fishing?
"Fishing, fishing, that's the life for me! I get high on ichthyology. . ."
That would be too entertaining. They don't want to give people a reason to linger - you have to keep turning over those tables (or barstools) if you want to make a profit, after all.
Speak for yourself on that one I am looking forward to going to T-Rex, they have a Rainforest cafe in London but nothing like that near me and it looks cool, even if I don't have kids. Watch out I'll be there next september.
While I do not live in London, I agree.
If it's anything like Rainforest Cafe I bet you won't stay long! My wife and I thought that it would be neat for us but our opinion changed rapidly. Yes, it's decorated neat and neat to look at. Other than that, it's very noisy, the food is only OK but expensive for what it is and the servers are rude. Add to this the unsupervised kids running around and it's not a pleasant dining experience. Maybe T-Rex will be different but I'm not going to hold my breath.
PI bartenders have been given their list of available bartender and server positions around Disney World. They have to submit their selections by this coming Tuesday. Unfortunately there are not a lot of prime bartender positions on the list; in many cases a restaurant server position may be more lucrative than continuing to bartend. The good news is that they can stay employed with Disney and keep their seniority.
Wow. Good to know that they're treating the bar staff better than the performers.
The amazingly talented casts of the Adventurers Club and Comedy Warehouse were given . . . the chance to audition for something else. No guarantees of work. No preferential casting consideration. Nada. And many of them have been with Disney for decades. Many of them are still looking for work.
I will say I like the RFC bar outside AK as a nice place to cool off during the day. But otherwise, RFC is nothing special. The animatronics are sub-Disney standards--don't know if they have "Chuck E. Cheeses" in your neck of the world, but they're common here in the States, and about the same quality. The food is the same as Chillis/Bennigans, only overpriced. And overall the experience is rushed and loud--they pack in too many kids into too small a place.
Trust me, as an adult you'd have a much better dining experience at House of Blues or Raglan Road.
I forgot to mention that the positions will be assigned in seniority order. Those near the top will get to select the better positions from a list that doesn't have many better positions.
I guess with bartending positions there are specific openings around the World that need to be filled or anticipated to be needed whereas the need for comedians is far more limited.
I started this thread to see if anyone knew anything about what is coming to the new "taken up a notch" PI. Appears that no one knows anything. This truly must be Disney's Best Kept Secret.
They're building a DVC kiosk there?!?!?!?!?
what are they building in the parking lot to west side?
To me it looks like a docking area for water taxis,but its in the middle of the carpark noware near to anything
It would be great if they made it into a Theater District especially because they have three huge productions they could show: The Lion King, Mary Poppins and The Little Mermaid.
I would love a Newsies play too!!
Considering there are refurb buildings which have sat empty for at least 1.5 years, I am not holding my breathe anything will be replacing anything soon. It will be a dead zone. Nothing more than a pass through for a long while is my guess.
My guess is that some shops will go right away into that building that was refurbished and has sat empty for around 2 years; it's ready and they've got to have some tenants lined up by now. And while there has been a lot of speculation, I'm thinking the South American restaurant/night club is also going into the same building but back behind on the lake. It too is ready for occupancy. RRBC would take a year to renovate.
Paulh....not sure where you're talking about.
