    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    Once they decided to build a 14-story gravity building, painting it "go-away-blue" was the best option. There's just no way to theme a building that big without totally overshadowing Spaceship Earth. The decision to build a 14-story gravity building may have been a bad one. But once that...

    Labor cost cutting measures begin at Walt Disney World as the company enters Q1

    I'm confused. I thought Disney was trying and struggling to hire additional, necessary workers to staff the parks and resorts? And now they're cutting?

    News Primeval Whirl, Stitch's Great Escape and Rivers of Light permanently closed

    I hope Disney doesn't build this type of coaster. Disney attractions should aim to be enjoyable for the whole family, from relatively young children to grandparents.

    Creations Shop opening this summer

    Always impressive when the idea and the execution are equally terrible!

    News Pontoon Boat rentals returning to some Walt Disney World Resort hotels

    I hope the Mouse Boats / Sprite Boats return next.

    Lobby redesign coming to Disney's All Star Movies Resort

    Great news. Currently one of the worst lobbies in WDW, even by value resort standards.

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    From Disney's perspective, this meant that Fastpass+ was working as intended, distributing guests more evenly throughout the park. Disney doesn't want some rides to have 2 hr waits while others are walk-ons. If FastPass+ convinces someone to head over to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh...

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    My ✨visionary plan✨ to solve the crushing capacity problem: Build more attractions! Restart shuttered shows. Open closed restaurants. I don't want to hear about Disney's capacity management nightmare at Hollywood Studios while Fantasmic, Indiana Jones, and Beauty and the Beast sit empty. I...

    News Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours coming for resort guests

    Sure, but for the extra $$$ you're also getting a larger and nicer room and better location, dining, pools, theming, etc. By themselves, the evening hours might not convince someone to splurge on a deluxe resort, but combined with all of the other benefits, they will certainly push more people...

    Citricos at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort to undergo refurbishments

    Looks beautiful! Very subtle and tasteful integration of Mary Poppins, judging from those pictures.

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    I was responding to these complaints about the coaster ride system: I think the ride system sounds promising. It's new to WDW and, even if it's not 100% original, it is rare. And as the only park without a coaster, I think EPCOT is a good place for the ride system. That doesn't mean that the...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    Yes. That's why I said "fairly unique" rather than "totally one-of-a-kind never been done before." The point is that it's not just a normal rollercoaster. Again, I think there are totally valid concerns about location, budget, sight lines, etc. But I don't understand complaints about the ride...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    From what we know, this will be a fairly unique ride system, with controlled rotation of trains to orient them towards show scenes. By all indications, the ride itself should blow RNRC out of the water. You can complain about the huge gravity building or the bloated budget, but it's just silly...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    In contrast to the terrible room makeover, I am really excited to see the new lobby and Steakhouse '71. The current lobby is a mess— worse than any other deluxe or moderate resort on property.

    Rumor Spaceship Earth Redo Shelved Indefinitely

    I believe it was initially planned to be a 2 or 3-year closure.
