A look at the side near Adventureland:
Behind the walls:
The side closest to the entrance to Tomorrowland:
The water will continue to flow all around the moat (360-degree flow) even after this expansion:
What is that structure that they are constructing at the bottom of the former moat? It looks like stairs going down from both sides.
@Andy It's cheaper for Disney to not have crews on a project 24/7. They stopped caring for the guest experience a long time ago because the guests keep coming anyway.
Well said Anonymous 2! Universal seem to be giving guests exactly what they want as quick as possible. With their plans of adding further hotels and a theme park in the future, they are strong competitors to Disney.
Its very different building King Kong on the edge of a park outside of the guest areas versus a much needed expansion smack dab in the middle of the busiest theme park in the world. There's some work that just cannot be done with of thousands of people walking 2 feet away from the project site, its a major liability no business would risk. The outskirts of New Fantasy Land went much faster than the Mine Train for that exact same reason. I wish it would be done faster too, but not at the expense of guest safety (especially since I'm a regular guest)!
I don't think most guests want to listen to heavy machinery and jack hammers while they visit. That's one of the many reasons Disney tends to limit in-park major construction to non-guest hours or times where traffic is lower.
