    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    I'm guessing with supply chain issues they prioritized merchandise like the 50th stuff. It's possible they can pump out more 50th merch by reducing other merchandise offerings. A lot of this stuff probably comes from handful of big producers. I expect a slow uptick in Splash merchandise...

    News A look at the refurbished Monorail Coral on the Walt Disney World Monorail System

    I'm not a fan of the black deltas, not sure why. I think it just sort of looks dated, I guess.

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    We just got back from our trip. Pretty interesting comparing last November to this November at Disney. Last year they were hardcore about enforcement, literally following people around to ensure they kept it on (saw this twice when they had to tell someone to put it over their nose). This...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    You both are wrong. They have been hurt financial in a hugely significant way. Numbers don't lie, this is not my opinion. If you say they haven't been bleeding money, well, I don't know what to tell you except that you're lying to yourself: Revenue at Disney's parks, experiences and products...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    Some people think it's needed, many more don't. Like I said, nobody but the top brass at Disney knows if this is actually going to happen in WDW. Considering that they've been bleeding money, I highly doubt it. The ride is still incredibly popular and the vast majority of guests have no idea...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    We'll see. Huge expense, not needed, would shut down a headliner attraction for at least 2 years. Not a lot going for it actually happening in WDW, but we'll see. I lump this in with all the other cancelled / greatly reduced projects over the past 5-10 years.

    I wonder why they didn't mention the retheme during D23??? Hmmm. Oh yeah that's right, because it likely isn't happening in WDW. This solidifies my opinion on that.

    Destination D23 2021

    I've actually stayed at the Hotel Martinez in the French Riviera. Styling was pretty similar. Now sure there are resorts over there that are absolutely incredible looking. Disney can't afford to build stuff like that. They could fake it I suppose, and the resort could have been better, I...

    Destination D23 2021

    You've obviously never been there. The rooms are very nice and the resort and it's grounds are as well.

    Harry Potter music on park buses...

    This is all pretty interesting. I had no idea! And this is something like our 9th or 10th trip in the past decade. Guess we never noticed it.

    Harry Potter music on park buses...

    On my way to Hollywood Studios right now and the bus is playing the Harry Potter theme song. Probably for the 20th movie anniversary but thought it was pretty interesting. Anyone ever heard of them doing something like this before?

    Anyone with inside knowledge here any updates on this lately?

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    That rise is what would be called statistically insignificant. Data rarely moves in perpetually one direction. WDW will drop the mask mandate indoors eventually. No need to be worried they'll keep it forever.

    And in other "people are stupid" news...

    Look I've never been a great driver or good with directions, so I'd appreciate it if you all stop making fun of me for where I parked. It provided a great view of the pool.
