Just a quick correction regarding the Polynesian. The pool has had zero entry for many years and the hot tub was not moved, they actually added it. Previously to this renovation the resort did not have a hot tub at all.

Hello Bob,

Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. I apologize for providing any false information. When I go to the parks/resorts to take the pictures I always stop by guest services or the front desk to inquire and confirm information. I did speak to two Cast Members that day about what was “new”, at the lava pool. I am surprised that I was given incorrect info from what should be the best source. Again, I am sorry and in all future editions of Photo Finds I will do a better job making sure the sources provide more accurate facts. Thanks again and I hope you continue to enjoy Photo Finds.

Captain EO is closed? Long may that rema so. It was dire. It seems that Innovations continues to struggle, what a shame it has so much potential

thanks for the info,.a LONG time WDW guest, there is no love lost for me if EO does not return. They brought it back for MJ, but the film itself is a bit lame and the quality is rough to watch. This pavilion is in dire need of overhaul and has such WONDERFUL potential. I am shocked Disney has not been on this instead of adding more theaters to Soaring. More interesting pavilions would have taken care of the over crowding in soaring.

The outside however i truly hope never changes, its one of the most beautiful cool spots in all 4 parks!

I think innovations has lacked for years. It use to be fun way back when. Definatly needs a big overhaul into something fun, hands on, that both kids and adult would like. New inventions to try out could be one.
