    News PHOTOS - Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom to receive enhancements this summer

    It was not claustrophobic at all ...it was wide open...that just happens to be a photo angle that made it look more dense than it was.... The trees pushed the castle visually farther back... it was magnificent. Made Main Street look longer than it is... Made Fantasyland look more distant and...

    News Refurbishment coming soon to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort - Moana details to be included

    You know I always cringe when they start talking about refurbishing the Poly...I feel protective because it is one of my favorite places. The recent refurbishments have not made me feel like we can expect wonderful things, but more like de-furbishments...like the Enchanted Rose or whatever it is...

    Morocco Pavilion facing financial troubles

    So if they ever did go belly-up, the worst thing that would happen is Disney would take over the restaurant and retail operations until they find another company to come in... Or maybe the failure of the restaurant at the back of the Pavilion would make way for a new attraction?

    Having the restored entrance plaza with working fountain is enough to make me happy... Now what happens beyond the sphere is more of a concern...lol

    News Tomorrowland love

    When it is not universally loved the way the original colors were, it is not lateral... It is a step backwards. If we knew for example that it was just temporary for the Anniversary, then I think a lot of people would relax but it has been stated on these forums that it is remaining... and it...

    Problem is, once they put that store in, it will never return to attraction space... But in the meantime, Overhaul Star Traders with that concept...Yes Please... But don't replace an attraction with a store...ever.

    It is hard to believe they ever did that to Disneyland... The Paris Disneyland Space Mountain works because it was designed to be that steampunk aesthetic...with the cannon and all... But to just apply the paint and expect the same sort of look... nope. Perhaps if the budget was not hobbled...

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    I agree...So excited to see this in person and lit like the old pylons were... Cant wait to see the plaza fully reopened and the fountain running... I wish the plan included the super tall palms...They added some much needed scale to the Sphere...Accentuated it's height and worked as a beautiful...

    While I will agree it is a beautiful store, and the right look for Tomorrowland, I would rather this replace Mickey's Star Traders and SGE feature an original new attraction that has something to do with the theme of the land... They have several IPs they could use...

    News Refurbishment coming soon to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort - Moana details to be included

    I did say unless they were adding something more... And I think removing the top beams even in this art diminishes the bold skyline of the building. One small piece of concept art does not tell the tale... I like the patterned screens on the monorail station and the new facade gable...but those...

    If it only looks good from certain angles, with certain lighting, at a certain time of day, or better with enhancements that have not arrived yet, I would say it is pretty much a failure of design. In it's original colors it ALWAYS looked good... If this is a permanent change, I would say...

    If they removed those beams they would be left with a square block of a building... the roof beam detail is the only real architectural flourish for the building and is visible from a great distance. I doubt they would touch these...unless there is a plan for something else added to the...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    While I love the spirit of this, Walk-through attractions are always kind of lame. The ride systems were developed to move people through so that there are not backups...In this age of "Selfie Fever", a walk through attraction would take forever to get through... There are plenty of ride systems...
