    Bob Chapek Confirms Disney Will Overhaul Epcot

    I think that you make a very good point. I don't know that predicting the future is futile, so much, because some of the things that, in the past, were in the realm of Science Fiction that have become commonplace, like handheld computers; being able to talk in real time, including video, with...

    Bob Chapek Confirms Disney Will Overhaul Epcot

    That point, I completely agree with.

    Bob Chapek Confirms Disney Will Overhaul Epcot

    I disagree. By 1983, the first video stores were opening and, odds are, you knew at least someone with a VCR in your circle of friends. It just ballooned after that. Heck, I grew up in West Virginia and still had access to a ton of information through home video, television, and my public...

    Bob Chapek Confirms Disney Will Overhaul Epcot

    You can pull out your phone and learn about lots of things. When EPCOT Center was built, we could watch television shows or videotapes to learn lots of things. Learning about things on a ride with sets and robots is a totally different experience than looking at the same information on a tiny...

    Canada Martin Short 360: worst film on property

    Enjoy your lifetime journey on the planet Earth! CANADA...MY CANADA.... (I also have had that song stuck in my brain for decades.)

    Bob Chapek Confirms Disney Will Overhaul Epcot

    Well, they were still going on the idea that, if you want to go overboard with spending, corporate sponsors can help fund that. Disneyland had to get corporate sponsors to be built and the MK had corporate sponsorship as well. You have to remember that EPCOT Center was, like Disneyland before...

    A Spirited 15 Rounds ...

    Yeah, you can see a definite evolution from Mermaid to Frozen to BatB. Mermaid really showed a leap in realistic body movement with Ursula. Frozen improved body movement even further and the projections worked great for things like the Trolls and the reindeer's eyes. The brief video we have of...

    A Spirited 15 Rounds ...

    While I completely agree, the Frozen AA figures are still pretty great. Now, if they were able to switch them out with fully-articulated faces, they'd be unbelievably awesome.

    STOLPort Expansion

    It will be a Ready Player One-themed resort with VR rigs in each room. ;)

    A Spirited 15 Rounds ...

    Sadly, for older items from the parks, setting an eBay alert for when one goes up for auction is about your only option.

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    He and Disney don't exactly have a good history. ;)

    Trip Report A Nostalgic Nerd and a Newbie experience WDW over Thanksgiving and, somehow, remain married.

    This trip was definitely filled with a lot of ghosts of family members who have passed on. Some attractions are inextricably linked with a person because of their love for it or memories of exciting times. My Dad, especially, loved WDW and would go on and on about the Carousel of Progress and...

    Trip Report A Nostalgic Nerd and a Newbie experience WDW over Thanksgiving and, somehow, remain married.

    Yeah, they were way off on that one, I suspect because that day coincided with Mickey's 90th Birthday and there had been a Destination D event that had taken place at the Contemporary over that weekend, resulting in much higher crowd levels than could be predicted by a model based upon...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    I did not. While I'm sure it was a different experience, it can hardly be considered a "special enhancement," in that it wasn't something that added to the original theme or related to Halloween in any way.

    Minor missing show effect that bugs you

    The portraits that changed with the "lightning" in the Mansion weren't working when I was there a couple of weeks ago. It really bugged me.
