Default Finally a Magic Kingdom walkway from GF and Poly

https://www.wdwmagic.com/resorts/dis...-a-reality.htm

I wonder how they'll do it so that the big boat can get out. Would it be a steep drawbridge, or a staircase with big ramp? Will they have elevators for Wheelchairs? I'm just glad there will be another option

It would have to be a drawbridge, similar to the one used at Epcot for the Earth float to pass.

A continuous promenade all around the Seven Seas Lagoon with corresponding development - I'm envisioning a super sized Crescent Lake.

And now that they have removed the Walk Around the World bricks, the next announcement will be the sale of Walk Around the Lagoon bricks.

The permit only states "dewatering", it makes no mention of construction of an actual bridge.

Haven't had a chance to read articles but "dewatering" makes me think that we will lose another beloved entertainment icon...isn't that channel used to store the water parade floats? Who's betting money those will go away next?
