    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

    By their nature, any spinner ride is going to be slow, as it can only cycle riders once per ride cycle and is low onboard capacity. I would guess the carousel or Magic Carpets/Astro Orbiter.

    I see a themed microwave oven at the kitchen section of the stores...

    But how can we complain if we just take it for what it is?

    Rumor Brazil (and maybe others) Pavilion Coming to Epcot [not about Brazilian people nor a country wish list]

    That placement for Brazil is much more convenient for the German leadership than the real Brazil was after WW2...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    Which is hilarious as well, when considering the Monorail...It completely doesn't fit with the themes of the Poly and GF. Its just so strange that people selectively pick on theming of transport at certain locations and ignore how their horse of choice isn't really much better.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    I genuinely don't get the hate for these resorts...they aren't going to be Polynesian level of themes and they are designed to be value hotels. I guess they could have gone with "generic hotel" for the theme, but they knew the majority of the people staying in them would be families with small...

    Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster to be Re-Themed?

    And lets not even start on how inferior the DCA version of Tower was...No forward motion, single lift/drop shaft and generally "cheap" in comparison. It was a headliner that got hamstrung by pure cheapness. It was like the opposite of PotC...The DL version is just superior and I don't think...

    O Canada and China

    they just slap another layer of plaster on Shorts face and call it a "refurb".

    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    That can either be a good thing or a bad thing... Modular and upgradable for future updates as tech and IP changes=good. Temporary = cheap is bad. I like the plan as of what I have heard, but now Im worried "temporary" means the "cheap" kind...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    I don't understand why we are so invested in this part of the story... Its entirely possible that something changed between when the word came down and now...I am a project manager and we have tons of stuff that moves to yellow/red in the Gant charts and resources get poured into other areas...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    There is a delicate balance on these systems between station speed and line speed. If you accelerate the line speed, you need to have an increased load/unload speed. If you do not balance these two, you end up with a backup that would necessitate a stop or slowdown on the haul rope to prevent...

    News Disney and Fox come to terms -- announcement soon; huge IP acquisition

    They got him in a trade for Al Michaels...Which is, in itself, a pretty funny thing.

    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

    Cant it be both? It seems like one of WDW and DL greatest strengths is that they have one foot in the past as they build futuristic rides. Honestly, the contrast between Tiki Birds and something like the incoming Tron is what I love about WDW that you just cant get anyplace else.

    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

    Ehhhhhh… This argument could also be used to replace Jungle Cruise, which actually fits your concerns better than GMR. The boat system is very outdated, the story is laughable 1960s cornball dad jokes, it has a huge plot of very valuable land in the most popular park and its completely reliant...
