    Rain is not an issue; lightning is up for debate. High winds are the most likely to trigger a shutdown.

    I have heard 2019 but I'm not sure that Disney has officially given a date.

    Do you think the construction would impact a stay there next August?

    i don't believe anyone can answer that. Disney will do their best to reduce impacts but they are building a gondola system that touches 2 parks and 4 resorts so there will be impacts. When and to what extreme is anyone's guess.

    I've been to Disney 30+ times and over the last number of years every single trip has been impacted by construction. I just choose not to see it as a negative thing and rather look forward to the new ride, theatre, restaurant or other that Disney is preparing for my future visits. It's really how we choose to look at things that determines how big an 'impact' something has.

    Here are pics I took yesterday morning of the construction between Pop and AoA. I know they're not the best but they'll at least give you a feel for where it currently stands.

    I'm guessing things were stopped during Irma but just wondering if progress appears to have started again?
