3.0 Proposed Project
This project proposes additional impervious surface. Stormwater treatment will be provided by the construction of two new dry detention ponds that outlet to the RCID EPCOT Master Drainage System.
The new attraction is rumoured to be a much smaller footprint than the full project area as much of the "impervious surface" appears to be undeveloped with structures.

Our boys are 18 and 14 year old twins, so having anyone sleep in the fold out bed at Port Orleans will be squishy. (It'll probably end up being me...) They LOVE Port Orleans, beignets, and the boat ride to Disney Springs.
BUT, having the extra space at the All Star would be really nice... two bathrooms specifically.

Animal Kingdom has extra magic hours are now 10:00pm - 12:00am for majority of the summer.
During these extra hours does it include Everest and Dinosaur (all of animal kingdom) or is that only or the Pandora land?
ANAHEIM (June 22, 2017)–Huntington Beach resident Jeff Reitz, who has visited the parks of the Disneyland Resort every day since January 1, 2012, marked his 2,000th consecutive visit on Thursday, June 22.
When Reitz, a Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder, began his daily sojourns to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in 2012, the resort was preparing to welcome the exciting new Cars Land, which opened that summer.
This month he’s visiting the parks during Summer of Heroes, a celebration highlighted by Super Hero encounters and the new Guardians of the Galaxy–Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction in Disney California Adventure, which Reitz already has experienced more than a dozen times. He says he looks forward to seeing the popular nighttime spectacular “Fantasmic!” when it returns in an enhanced version on July 17 along the Rivers of America in Disneyland.
Reitz, an Air Force veteran, credits the parks with giving him something to look forward to each day, noting that he enjoys hearing the music as he enters, interacting with the friendly park cast members, and watching the park guests having a good time. He also enjoys the shows and attractions, including one of his favorites, the Matterhorn Bobsleds adventure. Reitz says he plans to continue treating himself to daily park visits for as long as he can.

Now they opened the party dining and I snagged one for 6:30 which is more about the time we usually eat. Should I keep the 4:30 since we can get in at 4 or take the 6:30. Someone mentioned it took awhile to eat so wondering if we do the 6:30 we will miss anything of the party? It can't take longer than an hour to eat right?
My thoughts are if we do the 6:30 I can do a fast pass or 2 from 4 to 6. I'm sure we will be too full to do any big rides after eating so trying to figure out the best way. Wasn't sure when the parades and all were.
