    Correct me if I’m wrong but Beuna Vista Construction is a Disney company. They are located at Vista and N. Dopey Dr. on Disney Property. Not sure if that means anything or helps but I don’t think they are a large outfit.

    I know this rumor may have been (potentially) shot down on other forums, but let's at least play this out a little for the sake of discussion.

    We're talking about this general area, right?

    I think they act as a GC on many of the projects and run subs so they don't have to have all the overhead required of a big construction company.

    Yes.

    And since multiple people have let me know that the permit in question is in fact for Club 33, the question then remains, is the codename for DAK's Club 33 "Project Lion," or is that a separate project?

    Let's hope the latter.

    But even in that case, is there still enough room for both a Club 33 location and some other attraction? Without pushing out into the parking lot, that is.

    Probably not. A Club 33 could fit in the space probably, but a ride would need to travel over the road and into that lot most likely.

    They could push it out into this parking lot without many complaints

    I feel like Project Lion is too on-the-nose for it to be for an LK attraction though. Disney almost never makes their codenames so obvious.

    That is true and look at Alcatraz being the code name for RotR over in SW:GE as a comparison

    Yup. Sounds like my sources may have gotten their lions crossed on this one.

    I'm with you on this one but I say that at the risk of Alicia's wrath and withholding of pictures/updates/news.

    Oh, well.

    This was a pleasant fantasy while it lasted.

    Kinda surprised that Disney hasn’t made a Jungke Book and Lion King attraction in this park.

    A Jungle Book attraction, based on the live action version, would fit the part extremely well.

    Or even better, one based on the vastly superior animated version ;)

    I'm not saying the live-action one is better, but the style fits DAKs vibe more, imo. The realism is mostly what i'm talking about.

    I think that all goes out the window when we have CGI cat people ruling the roost
