    Is Epcot's theme/mission changing?

    Original EPCOT fans: what would you have Disney do? I'm sorry but this wasn't the case of Disney building the perfect theme park and poor management tearing it apart to its own detriment. This was a case of Disney building a park with x y characteristics, to find out guests didn't like x y...

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    And what a shame that is. With the rights to Looney Tunes, Universal could finally have its own mascot, in the form of Bugs Bunny to Disney's Mickey Mouse. And with DC, Universal could not only create some stellar attractions and themed lands with potentially an even bigger draw than Potter, but...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    ??? Because both can be true? Something can be criticized but still have merit. Personally I think the changes to DHS are for the best, but some who are attached to the original concept have voices their objections. I'm not really sure what your point is though? Is it that you think Frozen does...

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    In my humble opinion, Marvel is just not a good option. You can't even mention any of Marvel's most popular characters. That really defeats the purpose of a Marvel land, imo. Disney has plenty of other IPs, I'm sure they'll find something else to milk dry.

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    Doctor Strange, the Eternals, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Shang Chi, basically characters that have weak ties to the ones used in IoA. But none of Marvel's best characters, like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, etc can be used. Just really really deep cuts that Universal would have...

    Beastly Kingdom vs Pandora

    I mean, Beastly Kingdom is blue sky concept art from before DAK was even built. We don't know what that looks like, and most people who built it up in their heads to be whatever they want it to be. Pandora on the other hand is a realized place, subject to budget cuts, etc. So it's not a fair...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    1. There have been objections to Toy Story & Star Wars in DHS 2. DHS is in an identity crisis right now, and currently it's just viewed as a "ride the movies park," so Star Wars and Toy Story fit just fine, as would Frozen. 3. EPCOT has a strong identity, like it or leave it, and so a thematic...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    And to this day it still has a vastly more consistent theme than DCA. Another thing to note is that while EPCOT is beloved by Disney fans, DCA was never liked (at least by most). Therefore the reaction to something in EPCOT is going to always be much stronger than whatever is added to DCA...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    I think that's just because most people have lost hope for DCA, if they ever had it in the first place. Nevermind the problems with a California theme in the first place, DCA is so thematically incoherent that, at this point, who cares if they add another random attraction? Clearly there is no...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    I think Frozen could have fit in Norway. If the ride focused on the IP's roots to Norse mythology/folklore, and/or Scandinavia. That's not to say I think it'd be the best fit, or even a really good fit for the pavilion, but that I think it would be thematically appropriate. The fact that...

    Pandora World of Avatar Phase Two

    I think that expanding NRJ would be the best option, but I doubt that Disney would ever do it as there's really no incentive. That said, I firmly believe that if NRJ was spending its budget on one, extremely complex AA -- then it shouldn't have been a Na'Vi, it should have been an animal. The...

    July Reservations at the MK?

    Thanks a lot both of you for your responses :) so I've only checked the online calender. How does one just go ahead and try to book the dates? Should I buy the tickets first, and just refund them if we can't get a date? Thanks again 👍

    July Reservations at the MK?

    Hello, So right now I'm planning a trip for 4 people to the parks during the third week of July - last day being the 20th, flying home the 21st - but the reservations for the Magic Kingdom are all booked up until the 22nd. I'm just wondering, is there any possibility reservations could open...

    So what's the verdict? How good is it? On par with RSR or no?

    Why the hate for Little Mermaid ride?

    how though..? It doesn't even do a good job at summarizing the film.
