I'm afraid these photo's are illegal. Due to the new rules at Disney photo's can only be taken for private use and with the adds on this site you are making money from it so it's commercial use.
We are traveling to Orlando in April 2015 is any of this construction work going to be finished by then, also what about the work at the Animal Kingdom will this be finished by April, I'm afraid we are going to arrive from England and be greeted by walls every where.
I really don't think Disney is going to go after a fan site. Sure they might be making money from the ads, but it is great, free marketing for Disney.
That rule is in place for people making movies and stuff on property. Over a year ago, an indie film maker secretly made a feature length film at Disney that didn't show Disney in the best light. This rule was put into place so they can halt production and/or create a lawsuit.
Sure you could argue that these construction pictures don't show Disney in the best light either, but Disney knows not to shut down long running fan sites. There are only a handful of sites that post construction pictures and videos and most of these sites are only visited by die hard fans, which are the types of guests Disney doesn't want to anger.
I think after all this time, Disney would have said something. There are You Tube videos out there, and sometimes ads are included. I don't think Disney is going after them either. Besides, Universal is much more touchy about photos, and I don't think they are complaining. So, sit back and enjoy a great site.
The rules aren't new, not even close. Only the display of them at the park IS new. Disney has never shown to be disapproving of fansites and there are hundreds of them posting self-taken pictures, probably at this very second. It's really just free advertising for Disney. Get off your high horse.
Any word of aerial shots? I remember there were a ton floating around during the New Fantasyland Expansion...it would be cool to compare old aerials of the hub to new ones to see the expansion of the space.
The quest continues to turn the hub into a parking lot.
