    Apparently it's Jeff Goldblum? I must have really not been paying attention.

    I just sort of glanced at it and saw:

    Was my post so weak that you thought I was really asking, or are you just continuing the charade?

    Not to dredge up an old thread, but this little blurb from Joe Rohde seemed interesting on his instagram

    He was talking initially about a picture of Eisner, but still...

    That comports with what @articos says, which I enshrined here: http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/...attraction-confirmed-for-epcot.929265/page-86

    The idea that Joe Rohde is making videos for a new ride while choking on his own bile because he hates it and is forced to do it because of his evil corporate overlords and is blinking a Morse code message for help is a fanciful narrative. Very fancy.

    Oh, and Joe is still working for Disney? Well, so much for that last year's rumor.

    Wishful thinking. People assume/hope that others in power share their opinion, thus validating them. If it's someone who you respect for past works, then of course they will agree with you.

    It's only been three months and GOTG:MB is not the breakout attendance driving hit TDA was hoping for. In fact, it's a blip. I like the ride and what they did with it, so I don't have an axe to grind here, but after about two weeks, this thing died way down.

    I predict it will feel very dated in just a few years.

    It already feels dated. Cosmo doesn't work anymore, the CMs aren't a part of it, we never received the chaos promised in the gift shop nor the burnt pavement around it, and the pain job and tacked on lighting comes across as really low quality. The ride is thrilling, but people aren't even paying attention to the sequences. They just come for the music and thrill ride and scream over the rest.

    Some of us here - including yours truly - predicted that.

    Dear Disney Suits: Duh.

    Pretty much. Good thing just about everything can be easily swapped out for the next cheap and rushed overlay.

    To be fair lower APs have been blocked out for all but the first week or so of its opening. And that first week or so the wait times were high for most of the day. Once the APs were blocked wait times went down.

    Summer crowd levels have been lower than expected from what I understand. So its not surprising that GotG attendance has also been lower. Once all APs are unblocked next week I fully expect attendance levels to rise back up again. And thus wait times for GotG to skyrocket again.

    In other words...the upper level pass holders are more discerning in the type of attraction they want to go on ;)

    Or there are less of them compared to the lower level pass holders.

    This is the issue though - GOTG:MB/Summer of Heroes was meant to pull in non-APs and boost attendance. It didn't. I'm sure there will be a spike when APs come back into play, but it will fade quickly too.

    TDA didn't even try to market Fantasmic's return, which surprised me. They put all their summer eggs in the Marvel basket, and it didn't pay off.

    TDA folks if you're reading this - Pixar Fest isn't gonna cut it either.

    I still believe high ticket prices are a big factor, especially for locals who aren't APs. If DLR management thought a reboot of ToT with GoTG was enough to overcome the perception/fact that single day park tickets are overpriced then they really are dumb. Disney itself has blamed lagging NA theme park attendance partially on increased ticket prices.

    Wouldn't be surprised if there are fewer of them given how much Premier costs now. For $1,439 (plus tax) per year you get:

    365 Days admission to:
    • Disneyland Park
    • Disney California Adventure Park
    Note that at WDW for the same price you get:

    365 days admission to:
    • Magic Kingdom park
    • Epcot
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park
    • Disney's Blizzard Beach water park
    • Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park
    • ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex – Valid only on event days; some events require an additional admission charge.
    • Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course – Greens fee only; tee time reservations are required and are subject to availability.

    To be honest I haven't seen much marketing for any DLR offerings this summer as I have in years past. Here in the Bay Area I've seen a total of one billboard for Summer of Heros, and very few commercials. So I don't really think they tried to market it except initially through social media.

    As for attendance levels when APs come back. I have a feeling it'll be back to the normal crowded levels we've seen in years past. I fully expect wait times for the first couple of weeks to be like during opening week. Then by that time the Halloween crowds will kick in and we'll have a new crop of crowding
