    I honestly love coming here and seeing the old pictures of years past. The parks all need more shade and places to sit. They need to start rethinking that. I'm a redhead. I walk outside and burn.

    hang on, but the mickey ride is supposed to open at the cost of GMR.. thus there is a net gain of 0.

    As of 2015, there were 6 rides. In 2019, there will be 9. That's a net gain of three rides, regardless of if the overall attraction count increased.

    Not really. They closed Backlot, Jack Sparrow and Lights Motors Action. We're getting Alien Swirling Saucers, Slinky Dog Dash, and the two Star Wars attractions, plus the overlay of Great Movie Ride. We're gaining one attraction. But if you look at attraction as "ride" (meaning you physically move) then I guess we're gaining. But they've really just replaced some rides for others, albeit better, but that's not the point.

    Well it was. I said the rides will be better than what they replaced but they're still replacements.

    While I didn't think it was that great either, I don't understand why they closed it so early. At least it would give people something to do until the building needs demolished.

    While on the subject, what is Jack Sparrow gonna be replaced by? Are they gonna just keep it empty for ages, or do they have plans already?

    Nothing being there is probably better than Narnia and Jack Sparrow combined

    Narnia > Jack Sparrow > Empty guest chill zone > Sorcerer Mickey M&G > emptied awaiting demolition for the TSL entrance

    Sorcerer Mickey moved to old Sounds Dangerous and got paired with Minnie for Red Carpet Mickey & Minnie.

    Note in that timeline that an empty chill space was deemed a worthy replacement to Jack Sparrow. And I concur.

    3 of which will be tied to the new lands.. still the net gain is too low for the amount of people expected to flock to see star wars land.

    A choice between jack sparrow and having a random person slap my freshly purchased drink out of my hand and I would be gladly sacrificing that drink to not have to do jack sparrow
