    The food looks good at the new restaurant there.

    I really love how this turned out, but it’s so odd having such a high end hotel next to a bunch of rooms that look like and are on the level of a Southwest-themed apartment complex. I won't be surprised at all though if down the line, more of the original Coronado buildings are demolished for another tower and DVC taking up residence at the Resort. Or DVC just retrofitting rooms at the existing tower down the line.

    One way or another I have a feeling DVC will end up here.

    Was surprised to learn that the name of this new tower and many of the elements within it are from this animated short by Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. Work began on the short in 1945, but it is unique in that it wasn't completed until 2003, however.
