The current Space plot now takes up more square footage than Horizons did, but by volume I think Horizons would still win out. Hoping that since the restaurant is so isolated from the rest of the pavilion it keeps the door open for future expansion.

Horizons didnt really use that side block expansion space next to it, it was more elongated. of course there was a little more of it once it was gone and MS smaller footprint built.

And the total footprint still doesn't appear to fill in all of the Horizons footprint.

I'm sorry, but I didn't read any sarcasm, irony, or tongue in cheek in your post. You don't need to backpedal, however! Simply note that Merriam-Webster, as a liberally descriptivist enterprise, is simply reporting common usage and that this common usage is just terribly misinformed.

kind of interesting that the restaurant is almost as big as the pavilion itself...

Yes, that's a walk-in.

According to a reply to that tweet, that “mural” is actually the kitchen’s walk-in freezer. That’s pretty funny if that’s actually the case.

Same here, spent the last few months before the trip checking every day to see if there was a ADR update lol. Between that and the daily Rise boarding group practice I had nice daily WDW farming grind going on for a couple months haha.

good luck! I remember when we (wife and I with APs last year) were hoping for a 2019 open. Next came the guessing for an opening date in 2020 with February a popular choice. Now... ??? Maybe it will be open when we come back in 5 years?
