    Disney can put serious hustle into a project when they want to. Since you’re not until May I wouldn’t lose hope at this point. There is little reason for Disney to get the pool bar up & running over winter imho.

    I just saw pictures somewhere, maybe FB, today showing that it’s open! Excited to see the renovation and try the new menu (but I wasn’t a fan of the nachos:crazy2:).

    I'm glad WWS is open, but the menu changes? I wouldn't call that family friendly, or poolside food. Looks like they are down to one burger now (no chicken or carnitas), in favor of gourmet sandwiches instead.

    And the "Artisan" pizzas survived (may have been tweaked a bit). Our kids just want pizza, not funky/blended cheeses. Bummer for us. Curious to see how it goes.

    Were people complaining about the old menu? I never read any.

    They got rid of the Mickey Waffles. :sad: The biscuit french toast sounds interesting though. And the fried brisket and waffles. But I'll have to be a lot more careful due to food allergies . :(

    Not impressed at all with the 'fancy-schmancy' new menu. But what caught my attention is that the prices sure have been jacked up! I haven't eaten at WW in a few years, but I remember that the prices were MUCH more reasonable. Now it looks as though they're the same as Storytellers!

    (PS, it's nice to see that Disney included the allergy friendly offerings on their menu page!!)

    My two cents...this is another example of Disney Parks continuing to position itself as a luxury brand. Menu looks good to me and appropriate for a hotel at this price point.

    Thanks for the update! I'm excited that this has reopened and I now have a 6:00 am breakfast option without leaving the hotel and dealing with security. Some of the DTD options don't open until 8:00 which doesn't jive with my early morning park strategy.

    Agreed, they jacked up my burrito! Dang it. Used to be a good deal to go there! Now, not so much. I liked it being a good, quick, decent sized meal where everyone could find something they like. Bummer!

    Loving the new menu at White Water snacks. We ended up eating here twice on our September trip (the day before it closed the second time) and absolutely nothing appealed to me on the menu at that time. This all sounds delicious!

    I've search this thread and found a layout map in terms of room numbers, but is there a map anywhere that would allow me to know which rooms were Standard, Premium View, Woods View...etc.? Thank for any help as I try to surprise my husband with his "Dream" hotel.

    Unofficial map posted earlier in this thread
    Disney has never released an official map, or even floor by floor map

    PERFECT! Thank you so much. I understand it's 'unofficial', but at least gives me a starting point. Much appreciated!!

    Anyone have an update on the front entrance of the hotel? Are people still rerouted with walls?
