    Default DTD Marketplace dock to close

    As part of ongoing construction efforts in the Downtown Disney area, the Marketplace boat dock will soon close for an extended period.

    Now I understand why they rerouted the DVC resort boats to the Westside Dock (but I still don't understand why they switched months ago).

    Is there an artist's rendition of this causeway?

    Is this the causeway between the two Marketplace areas? I found this photo on the internet.

    What a neat model -- great image! Sure looks like it could be the causeway to me. Interesting, looks like one area to dock then and you walk toward Pleasure Island or MarketPlace.

    Yup..that's it.

    They've actually begun work in the water. There are some photos at the link below. Apparently they've been able to maintain the watercraft traffic for a little while but that will end Friday.

    Unhappy Hmmmm...

    With the always limited parking near Marketplace, it's getting harder and harder to get there if you're with anyone who has limited walking ability. We used to park behind HoB and take the boat over to Marketplace. Looks like we'll need to bring the wheelchair for my husband next time.

    I was wondering about that. I've been thinking I might go to DTD unless I'm staying at OKW or SSR until the remodel is complete.
