    Corona Attendance.

    Probably not with the kids (we have four kids between 2 and 9 years and while the older two would be okay, it would be tough to do a full day with the younger kids). If finances strike right, the wife and I might...

    Tokyo's Beauty & the Beast... Better than Ratatouille?

    Jim Hill called this a ride through show (or something along those lines)... I wonder if that is how Disney is going to market this as well... Either way, there were parts that were done well, but in general, just wasn't my cup of tea...

    News Bob Jackson aka Yehaa Bob ends after 23 years at Walt Disney World

    The cutting of entertainment isn't unexpected... It's low hanging fruit given the minimal attendance, closed venues, and current restrictions on crowd sizes. The question really is if it will (eventually) be replaced. While we all may consider groups like Voices of Liberty as sacred, there are...

    Tokyo's Beauty & the Beast... Better than Ratatouille?

    Yup, replace the Lord Henry Mystic character with Dreamfinder. For the finale as things start to get crazy/bad, instead of Albert closing the box, you have Dreamfinder calling through the darkness telling Figment to wake up, lights come on to see Figment waking up and Dreamfinder commenting that...

    Tokyo's Beauty & the Beast... Better than Ratatouille?

    Based on videos alone, I would rank the trackless attractions as follows: 1. Rise 2. Mystic Manor 3. Runaway Railway 4. Pooh 5. Rat 6. BatB Rat is the better fit for Epcot, BatB would have been a better fit than Mermaid, a modified version of the Mystic Manor story/attraction as a replacement...

    Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular plane

    Indy gets hit by the propeller (wrong place at the wrong time): Bad guy gets hit by propeller (failure of the trap door opening):

    Beauty and the Beast Tokyo ride through

    That dancing Beast and Belle animatronic at the end is pretty spectacular! It appears that both of Beasts feet actually lift and move... I assume both figures are anchored together through a common anchor point under Belle. Really cool tech there!

    Beauty and the Beast Tokyo ride through

    I guess I'm in the minority here, but I was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, there are a ton of neat effects and it looks really good, but it all feels a bit haphazard. It doesn't help that BatB is my favorite of the Disney animated movies so maybe my expectations were set too high to...

    On layoffs, very bad attendance, and Iger's legacy being one of disgrace

    It's quite a mix... Cedar Point has several on property hotels, but just off the peninsula you can find just a wider range range of chain hotels and motels ranging from absolute dumps to respectably nice hotels. (No Marriott's or Hilton's, but Cedar Point's Hotel Breakers is quite nice)

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

    For what it's worth, in the last couple days, Rhode has posted some drawings he recently made of Dinosaurs on his Instagram feed... Not sure if that has any connection to the closing of Primeval Whirl (and more importantly what might replace that area) or if it's just coincidence...

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

    Not sure what would be worse... A SBNO PW for several years, or if they just remove PW and put a few temporary planters and a M&G there for a few years... As much as everyone complains about how the area as a whole looks, that ride is the centerpiece of the area and for it to be either SBNO or...

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    To add to that list, Disneyland's Dumbo and Astro Orbiters have both moved within Disneyland (from their original locations) and Flik's Flyers was moved (and rethemed) within DCA.
