New deluxe resort

I'm sure it will be a stunning resort with a price tag to match, but I really wish they would build a value resort without all the giant icons. Why do "all" the values have to look like that? Can't they have at least 1 where as an adult, traveling with no kids, doesn't have to feel like you're in the middle of a playground?

I agree, although I can live with the icons, still... It doesn't apply to me as we are empty nesters, but I still believe they need more accommodations for families that are in the budget range.

I hear you. The giant icons at the value resorts do nothing for us.

I just wish the found another place for it. The artist renderings I saw have it out of place with themes of both WL and Ft W that is right on top of Ft W is something I am not too fond of either

There are always the DS resorts and some of them on the lower end in the value price range and you get many of the same amenities, but not all of them as staying at a WDW resort. You get more now than in previous years. There are 7 resorts, but only 2-3 are in the value price range. Bus transportation is easy to the parks and every 90 minutes.

I'm with Mike, the description of the resort and the artist renderings seem to be in direct conflict with each other. I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised when it is built.
