Unfortunately there is no way that the Gondolas will not affect the "serenity" of CBR to some degree.I must say- seeing these photos made my heart sink. I REALLY hope Disney adds some "pixie dust" to these poles in the way of greenery or decor that make them less of an eye sore.
CBR has been my family's go-to resort for the 29 years I've been alive. Countless trips here. My parents daily still use the old-school CBR multicolored refillable coffee mugs. My husband and I took our engagement photos here because of my love for the place. Usually at minimum 1 stay per year now that I'm an adult.
I am so hesitant about these changes. I keep trying to be positive because I know Disney always ultimately has a good end-product in mind. Plus, the idea of the gondolas is pretty cool. But these pictures seriously got me down- I hope CBR doesn't change too much in overall experience (even though I know we'll end up paying more $$ to stay there once the gondola is operating!) ughhh

The Gondolas will be a cool,fun and quick way to get to DHS and Epcot.
We will just have to wait and see if the "trade off" is worth it.
