Currently at the Fort.  Want to give some updates.

 

Bus between the Fort and Wilderness lodge is running on the access road.  Walking trail is still closed and is torn up in a couple of places.

 

Liberty Belle is back in the Rivers of America and operating.  There is an article in the Orlando Sentinel about its trip last night getting back.  I can’t read it because I’ve visited their site too many times.

2000 loop at the Fort was pretty deserted yesterday Thursday 2/4.  Filling up today.  Not sure if they are reading their faxes.  I asked for 2025, then 2027.  Checked in and they gave us 2045, but 2027 was open. 
 

That’s it for now.

But it’s my granddaughter Olivia’s 12 birthday if anyone wants to wish her a Happy Birthday!

Thank you for the walking trail update.  I can't understand why it takes so long to finish it.  From the Wilderness Lodge end of it, this past December, it looked like they were smoothing that part out.  I hope they can get it open again this year.

It was closed due to the Reflections construction.  There was a truck crossing the path not sure where it was heading.  Until they figure out that mess I doubt it’ll reopen

When did they move the Fort and Lodge boat landings at MK?  Now they are near the monorail and share the entrance to the new GF walkway.

Last time we took a boat, the launch was closer to the ferry dock.

The dock reassignment coincided with the closure of the Polynesian Resort monorail station in November. I’m guessing they needed a bigger covered waiting area for the Polynesian guests, and with only the DVC rooms open at Wilderness Lodge it made sense to give the Polynesian the bigger dock.

I agree. If the exercise trail was going to reopen, it wasn’t going to be until after the Reflections construction was completed. Now, I doubt there’s a plan or any money budgeted to reopen it.  It will probably remain closed until someday long in the future when a new DVC resort is built.

Trail is totally torn up and looks wider.

What’s really troubling is the paved part ends a little past the new barn.  At that point the old trail is totally gone, been all leveled out, and it’s all grass for quite a ways until the torn up part starts.
