Disney News #7

News gathered from various sources across the web…

  1. Demolition has begun on the long dormant Tommorowland Skyway Station. Although details of the project are still sketchy, it has been internally announced that the renovations are planned to be complete November 2009 and will included refurbished Guest restrooms. While there has been no confirmation of a connection, it is being speculated these renovations will somehow be tied to the current major refurbishment of the adjacent Space Mountain attraction.
  2. The Grand Floridian Resort has begun a refurbishment project in the Lobby section of the Main Building. According to Resort Cast, a new marble flooring is being installed that will feature an artistic design that incorporates such Disney Characters as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto and Cinderella. So far, this project has not been reported to significantly impact Guests’ stay. A completion date for this project has yet to be reported.
  3. The KidCOT concept has migrated from Epcot to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Kid Spot has recently opened near the KRNR The Rock Station snack kiosk. This new activity station offers children the ability to decorate large paper CD’s at no cost. It is currently not known if this is the only Kid Spot location planned for the Studios or if others will be added around the park as well.
