Slide towers are going vertical and slide supports are going up rapidly now that foundations are in place.

The first two pictures are for the racing slides and drop capsule slides.

I know you speculated about this months ago but the supports here definitely look like WhiteWater. Specifically that curved one looks like a Boomerango.

This is not far from where I work and live, so it'll be cool to see this resort continue to grow from the ground up!

So they have started slide instillation. Things should get a lot more interesting moving forward.

This property is really interesting to me, I know it was reported that they will allow non resort guest to purchase daily tickets to the water park so I'm anxious to see what kind of pricing structure those tickets have compared to other water parks in the area. I mean the Margaritaville waterpark certainly won't be on the level of Blizzard Beach but for what it is it looks pretty good and depending on how it's priced it could be a really nice option.

I agree with pricing. I think it will be themed better than some think. I see this park as a more themed version of a Wet N Wild. I know they will have a huge parking lot for the waterpark. So they are banking on a lot of day visitors.

Haha I was thinking the same thing. I stay on that end of town fairly often and actually like that area but the traffic can be a pain. I would guess that when this resort opens From your room to the Magic Kingdom Parking Lot will be a solid 20-30 minutes if nto more depending on traffic.


I live in the area and if you just take the back road behind Chick Fil A you only have to go through one stoplight and can be to Animal Kingdom in 5 minutes. But, you are correct if you are traveling during rush hour or early in the morning when the parks are opening it will take longer.


Just curious since you know the area, how much of a walk would that be?

It not the distance as much as there is no sidewalk most of the way and once you enter Disney property (by Animal Kingdom) their is no pedestrian connection to the park entrance. I have seen people walking it but I wouldn't want to do it.
