On the ground, the concrete is complete, and work is wrapping on the landscaping.

Men of Bob's vintage and station don't wear jeans. They wear dungarees.

Like so many of the guests, especially, men. Never understood that. Especially since the white T-shirt is a quintessential part of a man's wardrobe. And yet... black. Or very dark blue. With jeans, which are oh, so light and airy.

I wonder if he missed the beautiful new fountain and the Wishing Tree... I wonder if he liked the dry and odd female anatomy planter as the centerpiece of the area....

Sorry, I thought that you meant that Iger took one look and ran for his jet back to Burbank. Not that he got confused as to which one was a terminal and which Communicore Hall.

Indeed he does fly in one of the company's jets, but that wouldn't work for the joke that Communicore Hall looks like an airport terminal.

With a private or corporate jet (no way he flew first class), I'm not sure that he has to worry about a gate like us. Typically, the car takes him right to the jet or very close.

Probably started looking for his gate for his flight back to Burbank.

Could be why the banners got put back up a couple weeks ago. I'm glad he got to walk it during the daylight, since that makes up the majority of the operating day. He was probably reminded that there is no festival right now multiple times. Still, the heat is on, even if it's not peak heat, so I'm glad he got to feel it, at least. I bet they tried to get him to come for the fireworks.

probably praised it all because his teams did, he doesn't know any different, Eisner was more on it that way,

Probably unaware that what he wanted was worse for most people in the park.

Looks like Bob Iger also made it to EPCOT today:

Will be interesting to see if this comes to be, it looks like a charming attraction that would fit in well in WS despite more ip cramming. But if they nuke it and cut it all down to a lesser cheapo even shorter version, I'd say don't bother.
