2.0 Project Site Description

The 5.70 acre project in Epcot consists of adding impervious surface. Stormwater from the site discharges through existing conveyance pipe to the RCID Epcot Master Drainage System.

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.

A "Ratatouille: L'Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy "clone from Walt Disney Studios park in Paris is the front runner in the Rumour Race for this new spot. Attached Images

2 Value Rooms or One Moderate

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-06-22 23:35
We are going down over New Years this year, and the cost difference between two All Star rooms and a room at Port Orleans is only about $100.

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.

What would you do?

Halloween Party Question

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-06-22 12:44
We are going to the Halloween party ( first time) and using that as our day at the park. I had already booked BOG at 4:30 because that was the only time I could get.

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.

Any thoughts?
