    "Aladdin" live action prequel

    Nice recovery, Disney - clearly this is the best piece of marketing yet. Also, Will Smith got some much-needed damage control and the songs seemingly hit the mark. That said, Disney used some of the same tricks with Beauty and the Beast, particularly an epic orchestral arrangement to conclude...

    Announcement New dedicated section for 'Evolving Epcot'

    An exciting milestone and one I’ve been eagerly waiting for - thank you!

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    On the bright side, once Galaxy’s Edge and Runaway Railway have opened up, you will be able to get Slinky Dog. 🙌 #blessed

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    I would’ve thought the same, but they’re confident the demand will exist for both soon enough.

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    This is both brazenly confident (in all the crowds that will materialize post-Galaxy’s Edge) and dismissive of those who’ve been loyal to the increasingly overpriced Disney resorts. And frankly, I think Disney knows what they’re doing here; people might be annoyed but they’re still going to...

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    This is kind of hilarious, considering Disney’s relationship with Bonnet Creek in the first place. I guess everyone’s friends now! [Colors of the Wind intensifies]

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    It's technically not a tower, but the Villas at GF deserve a shoutout here too. The original resort was inspired by the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego; the new wing was inspired by the boxy starkness of Walmart, which they also have in San Diego. Observe the subtle but complementary...

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    I like where you're head's at! Alternatively, maybe they can go ahead and finally build that California Coast-inspired DVC adjacent to AKL. After all, parts of the California Coast share a similar climate with Southern Africa's Western Cape, and there are a few African-inspired restaurants in...

    EPCOT Poll

    I think this is a great point. Given the piecemeal nature of these updates (and Epcot's overall philosophy of distinct pavilions compared to fully immersive lands), all of the changes feel incremental and not necessarily complementing the same vision. Test Track 2.0, CGI Soarin', and Frozen were...

    EPCOT Poll

    Indifferent to the announced France changes, having found Rat to be meh in Paris (and disappointed its addition comes at the expense of a pavilion plot that would’ve been perfect for Spain). Guardians feels wrong for the park but I’m sure it will be fun. Reluctantly positive about it. Play...

    Captain Marvel

    So pointless, yet we saw how that worked out with Black Panther. ;) If the movie is good, I have a feeling its box office numbers will reflect that eventually.

    Captain Marvel

    Got my ticket for Friday, March 8th - a matinee showing in Brooklyn at the Alamo Drafthouse. Excited to see Brie Larson suit up, as well as the 90s references and further setup for Endgame. Can’t wait!

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Space needs a new track whenever it next has an extended refurbishment. It’s already rough enough that I choose not to ride it anymore, and next to Tron it feels like garbage.

    "Aladdin" live action prequel

    I moderately enjoyed it in theaters. Parts of it were meh (the entire “Belle” number was a highlight of BatB ‘91 but forgettable in live action; the town looked more like a set than a lived-in place; Emma Watson isn’t a singer and relied on too much auto-tune; the enchanted characters looked...

    Toy Story 4

    Yes, that's a very real possibility. We saw the same strategy employed with Tangled, Frozen, and Zootopia, then the reviews came out and audiences were won over. The first teaser featuring Key and Peele had that exact feel; I'm sure it's not in the movie but still didn't like it. Same with the...
