Anyone else think a "lengthy" refurb means Summer 2023 is impossible? Either "lengthy" or "Summer 2023" is likely a big lie.

I feel like "lengthy" is the only kind of refurbishment WDW knows how to do anymore. ;)

Already? And right before the busiest time?

"Enjoy Japanese fusion cuisine inspired by the ficticious city of San Fransokyo as featured in the Disney's Big Hero 6." coming soon¿?

That seems rather abrupt. I didn't see any notice of this earlier?
