    Needless to say, we're eagerly awaiting the opening of the JW Marriott. As things stand, the artist renderings for the rooms are limited so it's impossible to properly gauge the differences between the categories, and there are still no announcements about the various restaurant concepts (they're described simply as Market Cafe, Lobby Bar, JW Casual, JW Signature and JW Rooftop).

    We're intrigued by Space 220 and genuinely excited for Harmonious, although I doubt we'll get to see that this trip.

    As of today, JW Marriott's website has been updated to 'Opening March 2020'. From everything I follow, it's clearly getting very close to completion, but given the lack of detailed information, it doesn't surprise me at all.

    Not sure how I missed this when it was first posted, but I have been having internet issues (a down load speed of 0.2 mbps!!).

    There certainly are some great things to look forward to. Top of my list would be the new Cirque show, we loved La Nouba and saw it three times, so seeing the new show should be a thrill. And the new coasters look to be a great addition.

    But sadly this will have to wait until 2021 as for the first time since 2005 we won't be making a trip!

    Oh dear TF, no trip? Unfortunately it is unlikely we will be returning until 2022...unless my lottery numbers come up (and I'm still hoping!)

    Florida will definitely miss you this year, TF, and so will we. We'll have to make 2021 extra special ;)

    Thanks. 2021 will mark 30 years since we first went on "our holiday of a lifetime".

    We shall certainly miss meeting up with you.

    It sounds as if they are trying a bit too hard to be 'creative' with their language, rather than their cuisine! 'Playful beverages', 'a nourishing note,' and 'invigorate the senses' all smack of pure marketing speak rather than something more meaningful. I'm sure the reality will be pretty positive, but I do worry when I see such patent nonsense!
