    How is this going to look from inside the parks?

    I say that realizing they don't seem to care about this anymore.

    The Dolphin and Swan look very dated, like something out of Miami Vice. Hopefully this will sprice up the area, but I do agree with Tekneek on the LOV from the parks.

    Because that's exactly what WDW needs right now, another resort to help fill the parks even more...
