Candace Dadswell:

Thank you so much for all the wonderful update information and photos. Our family will be vacationing at Disney in Nov/Dec and I look forward to your blogs and being able to see the progress that is being made. It is exciting to watch as the park expands and grows and knowing that I will be there to experience it all in just a few short months! Keep up the good work and thank you all at AllEars for bringing us our daily dose of Disney!

Gary Bracknell:

I'm sad to see the Skyway station torn down. It was a part of Magic Kingdom history. At least now I won't be as shocked when I go to park the stroller in that area this Sunday!

Tiffany:

I hear that they are replacing the skyway building with restrooms. Do you think they will be starting that soon? We will be coming down at the end of Aug.

Nicole Stack:

So glad to see Blackbeard instead of Davy Jones on Pirates... I wasn't going to bring my daughter on it for that reason- Davy Jones is just plain scary! Now she can experience it with us in October!!

Rachael Riley:

Sad to see Pirates lost Davy Jones. He's a lot creepier to "go through" than Blackbeard. Thanks for the update!

Ashley Carnes:

Wonderful photos! I live vicariously through these blogs since it'll be awhile before I get back to the World. :)
Though I believe that I read that the Blackbeard effect is only temporary and Davy Jones will be restored at some point. Can anyone verify?
