[QUOTE=llama;1087132]I’ve never stayed at Pop Century and I’ve never even heard of the Animations Resort - but gotta say - I love the name “Generation Gap” bridge.
I can’t imagine myself in the year 2875 - who of us can!!! But I like the themeing at Pop. I love the “kitsch”. Isn’t that what it’s suppose to be all about?[/QUOTE]
Talk about a bridge to nowhere (at least from 2002-2011).
I think I might have referred to it as “The Bridge to Tomorrow” but “tomorrow” seemed to always be a day away, and never any closer. And that fence at the far end that kept you out of “The Forgotten Years” was the perfect illustration of what a bridge to nowhere really is:whistling
The resort is officially Disney’s Art of Animation and was previously referred to by posters as “Pop Century: The Forgotten Years” for obvious reasons.
If you look at bird’s eye aerial pictures on Bing Maps, you can see that the main building has the numbers “00, 10, 20, 30, 40” just like Pop’s main building has the numbers of the decades of the second half of the 20th or the “Pop” Century.
They’ll be gone soon, if they aren’t already, but the picture is at least 18 months old.
This is a still a value resort, so it will have all the same type of oversized icons that the current 4 values have. It will just be themed to Disney (and I guess Pixar) animation projects. The real difference is that there will be a large number of family value suites. The resort was originally planned to have 3000 rooms, like the current Pop, but instead there will be something like 1200 suites and 900 singles (don’t quote me on these numbers).
I think the other poster slipped and meant to type 2075.
I don’t think WDW will exist in 2875.
IF man doesn’t get his act together, nothing will exist in 2875.
What will it be like in 2075?
Who can say. Look at Cedar Point today as compared to 100 years ago.
