    I doubt that this will happen. The gondolas will not be able to operate in high winds or when there's any kind of electrical storm activity around. The buses can and do operate in all conditions. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Man I didn’t know we can see fireworks from CBR! We probably won’t stay in the parks late enough to see the fireworks with 4 small kids. Where can we go to watch them?

    I'm sure there will be busses if the gondolas can't run for one reason or the other.

    But, when they are running, it's not certain whether or not there will be any bus service to HS or EP.

    Just like for monorail resorts and Epcot resorts, they have bus service when the friendship boat can not run, but no bus service when the boat is running.

    Since you have 5 guests in your party that are at least 3 yrs old, you will get a room with the Murphy Bed. So I would call and request first floor.

    Outside Banana Cabana is a good spot. You can see Epcot reasonably well and MK in the distance.

    Am I missing something? As far as I know, there have always been 2 hot tubs at the main pool. One with a view of the pool and one behind the stairs to the larger slide (don’t know what to call it). The hidden one is our favorite. I’m hoping it’s still there and it was just hidden well from you. I don’t recall hearing that they took one out.

    The one closest to the main building went during construction.

    Thanks for asking the question - I had no idea the first hot tub was gone, my husband also liked the hidden one.

    Sorry I went missing in action guys and gals. My husband is having some medical issues and you know all the crap that goes along with that...insurance....waiting....etc. Look like they are testing the skyliner.
