My pleasure, sir! I think Disney is firmly connected to what a world-class resort entails, so I expect, and look forward, to a huge across-the-board upgrade here. As stated elsewhere, there will be some downsides in the form of less access to currently open areas like the beaches and the pools, but that's fair to those paying resort guests who expect some privacy and control in a high-end resort. And with higher average occupancy due to Disney Vacation Club offerings, the resort will need to work hard to avoid congestion and maintain a peaceful and relaxed ambiance.

There really are many nice textures, patterns, and architectural features in the current incarnation of the resort. I tried to capture some of that in my photos, and I may post more images later.

One thing resort guests will have a hard time dealing with is the new and more congested look of the Seven Seas Lagoon waterfront. The bungalows over the water, especially, intrude into what was once, to me, a much more open and aesthetically pleasing vista. I went to the Grand Floridian to take pictures across the lagoon and it was amazing to note how much more busy the Polynesian waterfront will look when they are finished. There was a certain elegance in the simplicity of the old waterfront which I will miss.
