A WDWtraveler post without pics? Gasp!

Update as of Thursday, July 16. Overnight, the palm tree branches were trimmed back so the boat and the building stand out more. The boat "straps" are gone now, with permanent supports in place. A drain system was installed to remove rainwater that might collect inside the boat.

they will need to move these palms a bit to the sides. so it doesnt block the text, or the boat.

Boat is a nice touch.

Photo update as of Wednesday, July 15. Finally, last night the "hanging boat" was installed at the front entrance to The Boathouse. The boat is mostly hidden by the large palm trees, but the iron beams on the second story exterior were designed for this feature. The temporary straps holding the boat should be replaced with something more nautical in the future.

That is great news! They didn't make sense, so really glad to see that being done. :)

Many of the outside Boathouse auxiliary signs (Dockside Bar, Amphicar Launch and Landing, etc.) will be replaced soon with signs in the "Disney Springs" format and style. Unsure what they will look like, but the existing signs (and their color scheme) will be replaced. Source: Management.

Yea, I asked the same thing. I'm curious to see how the sides will work

wdwmagicMay 18, 2015

Yes it is 4 for a serves 2 dish.

Well, there goes the restaurant. I'm still wondering if they will charge 2 credits each for the entrees that are advertised as for 2. If they charge 4 dining credits for one steak, people might be a bit hesitant, even though the restaurant is probably barely breaking even. And yes, what does that do for the sides that are extra?

It does say it when you book the reservation, when you get the confirmation email.

Yep its a done deal.
