Not moving......If anything, they would be eliminated.

They do have the boat storage over on Bay Lake. You'd think they could carve out something there for the EWP.

As for the River boat? What do they do at DL? There's no big lake to take it out to there. Does it have to be able to be removed that way?

This ^^^^^^

As much as I dearly want it to be true, what if this is nothing more than shoring up the bank of the lagoon? It just seems to be that “GF to MK walking path” could be a description of the location.

Before I get too excited I want to see a permit for an actual bridge.

And they're going to install weatherproof moving walkways like at the airport!

I always wondered why there was a walk there but no one could use it. This would be a great idea (although I never have stayed at GF and never plan to).

It's quite possible that path is for access to the monorail beams that pass over it.

My vote would be to move the EWP to the Ferry Boat landing, and get the Ferry Boat as far away from the Polynesian as possible! Curse that horn and the crowds that come with it!

Maybe. But if you look at the MK from Google Earth, there is a path that goes down near the water that looks like it was built for guests. I used to wonder if it would be a good place to watch fireworks on the 4th or NYE, but then I realized it was much lower and would be blocked by the monorail and train station.
