'The Cake Bake Shop' has issued an update on its Facebook page with a revised timeline for its opening at Disney's Boardwalk in Walt Disney World.


As we previously reported, construction has been moving at a leisurely pace, and it was clear that the new restaurant and bakery would not meet its planned 2023 opening.

The latest timeline from 'The Cake Bake Shop' is an early 2024 opening.

Here is the full update

All of us at The Cake Bake Shop are eager to unveil the beautiful details and charm that are coming to Disney's BoardWalk! As the excitement is building and our hearts are brimming with anticipation, we expect to open our doors early next year to welcome you to an unforgettable dining experience. Stay connected with us for more details leading up to our opening.

We know Imagineering was responsible for the renovation of BWI's pool area from scary clown vomiting sliders to Mickey and friends and their "kiesters."

If true, why are they taking theming out of every hotel and making them more generic?

Imagineering or DDC before 1996 oversaw their design and construction. But most of the actual architecture, engineering, and interior/exterior design was handled by outside vendors and design firms. Imagineering is still involved in a similar capacity.

Wasn't Imagineering overseeing them at design time? I believe Disney Legend Wing Chao was deeply involved in these hotels. Is Imagineering still involved during refurbs?

That’s how most of the resorts came to be. Including Boardwalk originally.

Maybe they are paying "plenty" to third party vendors who are outsourcing the design work.....

Then where is the money going? It sure isn't being used to purchase one of a kind items that give the Hotel it's theme. Has the cost of the items in the Hotel decorating catalogs that Marriott uses gone up that much? Maybe its time to up the budget then....

The Boardwalk is really loosing a lot of its charm. It’s very disappointing, I can’t believe this is what it’s come to.

Disney pays plenty for their projects.

Thank you for providing the photos. I agree. It is simply not practical.

So you're saying that they thoroughly inspected the meeting room

I can assure you that a huge amount of budget is wasted (used) on copious amounts of onsite inspections and meetings.
