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

    There is no target audience, that's the point. They just want the ride gone and replaced with something else, doesn't matter what replaces it as far as they are concerned.

    Well, they also aren't replacing all of Splash Mountain. I would expect it to take 2 years.

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    This 1000x. We should welcome improvements every chance we get, regardless of if you agree or disagree with the reasons. For example, no one seems to have any issues with the explosion updates proposed for Big Thunder Mountain. But, if the reason for said updates was cultural, there would be a...

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

    I think we are looking at at least 2 years before Splash closure. Financially speaking, while it is still very much a priority to the company, it has almost certainly been delayed to some degreedue to COVID. Funds are already eaten up (hence the pause of Tron and the slow pace that EPCOT is...

    Still no Moonlight Magic for 2021?

    What's going on with this? Seems a little confusing that they aren't planning any events considering the DVC attendance to MM is definitely < 35% and members pay for it. What's the problem that I am missing?

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

    Thanks for sharing that. My novice understanding of the argument promoting the fables is that they were fables told by African Americans so they should be preserved. That sounds plausible to me. But that doesn't mean they aren't rooted in minstrelsy. And yes, maybe banishing the film and...

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

    Personally, I wish they would've remade the film. Used it as a spring board to educate and right the wrongs in the original film. Imagine how lovely a James Baskett audio animatronic would've been at the end of the attraction sitting with Brer rabbit. That's the thing that stings the most about...

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

    The truth is, Iger will be long gone before the first thorn is removed from Splash Mountain. A lot can change by then. Like I said earlier, sooner or later, something will happen with the attraction. But that doesn't mean it can't be shelved for 5, 7 or even 10 years. I also am still trying to...

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

    I mean that's the other thing. Are they going to put a Rise of the Resistance type effort into this re-theme? Almost certainly not. Which is why I don't understand how any one could support this without at least some hesitation. We're almost certainly getting a worse attraction. And not just...

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

    For sure, though I still see some people having hope that they'll let it quietly fade away and never return. The re-theme can be really great. I don't necessarily agree with the reasons but just because they are redoing a classic doesn't mean it is going to be bad. It can be bad, for sure, but...

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

    Kinda ironic considering the long time WDW fan, to whom Splash Mountain is beloved, hates Chapek. But Chapek is also a no-nonsense, everything must have financial upside type of guy. So, this re-theme is the exact opposite of what Chapek would do if given sole ownership over these decisions.

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

    Diverting funds for Splash Mountain would be a good thing; even for those who don't want this to happen. Let's be clear: This re-theme is going to happen. If it's not this year, it will happen in five years or ten years. Point is, it will absolutely happen. If they are going to do it now, I'd...

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

    The truth is, they could easily re-theme the attraction at DLR and then claim that they are 'evaluating a timeline' for the WDW attraction due to pandemic related financial constraints and everyone would forget about it. I think they bit off more than they can chew by announcing it for both...

    News Disneyland cancels Annual Pass program

    Right. Florida has a lot more going for it in regards to the AP program: more parks (2 vs 4) larger parks (85,000 capacity vs ~350,000) more flexible capacity limits (all self imposed) far less local APs

    News Disneyland cancels Annual Pass program

    I think a lot of you are forgetting that there are over a million DLR passholders; the vast majority who are local. What happens when DLR opens with the ability to only allow 15,000 guests in at once (including day guests)? You'd be effectively giving every single AP roughly 1-3 days to access...
