Great job. My only criticism is there are numerous spelling mistakes. Your site is very professional & fixing those mistakes would improve it even more.

They're building the biggest coaster in the world at 500ft tall, 140mph, 15,000ft long, 12 inversions including a 450ft Vertical Loop & a 300ft Floater Hill (6 secs of weightlessness.) To be completed in 2010.

Seriously, what are those cranes building? Looks like estates or shopping malls.

Theres so much constrcution going on in that city I couldn't tell you what those cranes were for. It's facing soemthing on International Drive or near it south of the park near Disney. Maybe a new Hotel?

Well, they're not in the direction of Disney, or Universal. I'm guessing either a mall or new interestate overpasses. But it's not theme park expansions, those look like long-term installation cranes.

I just got back myself from a convention in Orlando. Those cranes are working on the Convention Center *Addition*. Judging by the Model, it is going to be huge.

Great Pictures!

I know across the street from the convention center they are building a HUGE hotel, something like 2,000+ rooms. but I didn't think that was in the direction of the convention center. Maybe it is .. when I'm in Orlando I'm always backwards.

HurricaneGeaga is right, a sign outside of it states that a Grand Ole Opry is coming to Orlando.
