    Skip to 13:27 in and it shows the construction site. It looks pretty much like Riviera for the most part.

    Blue Tower Cranes.

    That's all I was curious about.

    Goodness that thing is going to be a monster of a structure at a hotel like this where most of the buildings are fairly low to the ground.

    This thing is a behemoth looming over this resort. Still 4 more floors to go too. You can sort of make out where the restaurant out in the middle of the lake will be now.

    A ground-level pic of the tower, almost fully topped out. In the forefront is the new dock that is being built to cross the lagoon and pilings for the new restaurant being built out on the water.

    I don't get the title of the video. What does he even mean by taking the "Disney" out of Coronado Springs?
