Mike of TimeStream Software (the people responsible for the Disney Notescasts for the iPod and iPhone) sent me these pictures a few weeks ago. I thought you would enjoy taking a look. This first picture (above) was taken around sunset, and you get to see some of the construction happening. The picture below shows the east side of the resort.
It will have 359 hotel rooms, 481 time-share units, restaurants, a convention center, a 15,000 square-foot spa and a massive water play area overlooking the lagoon, which will feature a volcano tube slide and snorkel lagoon. It’s located on 21 acres on Oahu’s Leeward coast in the Ko Olina development, located about 1/2 hour from Honolulu. It’s currently scheduled to open August 29, 2010, with hotel reservations to begin next month.
Mike also notes that time share sales started three weeks ago (I got the email on July 29, so I guess that means sales started six weeks ago). He also mentioned that he saw Disney reps on the beach side of the construction site answering questions for any curious passerby.
Thanks to Mike from TimeStream Software for the pictures!
