    POLL: Which do you prefer? Upsells or layoffs

    The entire premise of this poll is mistaken as it proceeds from a series of false assumptions. First, and by your own admission (above), Disney is not seeing the decline in attendance which Sea World has experienced. There is no call for layoffs; This isn't an either/or proposition. The...

    A Terror-rific Spirited 13th (ToT fans have lots to fear)...

    While I do not necessarily disagree with your larger point, you are still painting with much too broad a brush here. It doesn't matter what you or I or anyone else wants Walt Disney World to be, rather what is important is Disney continuing to uphold its own established standards; Innovating...

    Puck style MagicBand 2 is official

    Actually, this should help stem complaints from those of us who never wanted to wear colored plastic bracelets around on our wrists. The puck should fit in my pocket better, or can be carried by other means; Maybe I won't have to request an RFID card at check-in next year.

    A Terror-rific Spirited 13th (ToT fans have lots to fear)...

    I will agree the goalposts should not be moved. That said, the standards for what constitutes an "E" ticket level for new attractions have advanced over the decades; Technology and other innovations create far more (truly) immersive and epic-scale rides than could have been imagined thirty or...

    Will Indiana Jones ever be at WDW?

    More often, money drives just the opposite approach. Design an attraction for one park, and clone it in as many places as practical to keep the costs down. Unique rides are expensive, and Disney tends toward the cheapest possible investment.

    Pop Century Room Rehab

    I haven't followed this as closely as I might have, so if I may ask, has it ever been confirmed if all Pop Century rooms (King beds aside) are getting this hideously awful murphy bed arrangement, or will there still be conventional rooms with two double or queen beds? I know that unrefubished...

    Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Energy Pavilion at Epcot

    So, you're saying that Avatar likely will not stand the test of time, since it was reactionary. You realize that, right?

    Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Energy Pavilion at Epcot

    Yet we have posters here who continue to argue Epcot Center was unsustainable and unpopular, that the park "had to change direction" to give the people what they wanted. Don't you just love revisionist history. :banghead:

    Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Energy Pavilion at Epcot

    We also have easy access to all of the movies and other intellectual property which Disney apparently thinks all its attractions must be based upon. Most guests will have seen Frozen or Star Wars or Guardians of the Galaxy long before they arrive in the parks, but that certainly doesn't in any...

    Ask the original California Adventure.

    Paint the night is not moving to Disney World. Stop bumping this.

    I'm fairly certain I could articulate an objective argument why Marni is right.

    A Terror-rific Spirited 13th (ToT fans have lots to fear)...

    No. Rather, we need to learn from prior mistakes, not only so they won't recur, but take practical and reasonable steps to address what has been lost (special order Horizons shirts isn't it, incidentally). Succinctly, the "learn from the past or be doomed to repeat it" argument. Disney's...

    A Terror-rific Spirited 13th (ToT fans have lots to fear)...

    When a park already suffers from an anemic attraction roster, the shuttering of two high capacity attractions represents a rather significant loss. That "Backlot Tour should've been shut down years ago anyway" is merely an opinion (though arguably a correct move), but even though the ride was...

    Paint the night is not moving to Disney World. Stop bumping this.

    So, do you also not like watching the Electrical Parade or Spectromagic? You realize what you call stupid is beloved by millions (hence the crowds...). . Regardless, if you're at the end of Main Street, you have obvious ways around the congestion.

    Disney springs not doing so well.....

    Indeed. Someone should definitely start a thread to discuss Disney Springs and how well it is performing. :confused:
