    Disney to mandate full vaccinations to employees

    This seems like important information for some in this thread... https://vaers.hhs.gov/eSubDownload/index.jsp?fn=2021VAERSData.csv Bolding is my own.

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    I'm not asking anyone to prove anything. As a matter of fact, I said the opposite. That we won't ever have definitive proof. Best states can do is weigh what we do know (all things being equal, proper mask usage reduces spread) and weigh that as a risk/reward calculation as to whether mask...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    And that is great news for the people of Florida. But it doesn't provide a basis to say that other states would have done better with no mask mandate, nor that Florida might have had an even better record if they had had strict mandates in place. It is a single variable among many. It's just...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    This is misleading. You can't compare seasonality across regions and expect to draw conclusive results. Even taking out the factors of prevalence of different variants or demographics in different regions, just the simple fact that winter in the North East (a time forcing people indoors...

    Iger and Chapek Livid With Lucasfilm

    McCallum gets a bit of a bad wrap. I'm not sure there are many producers who would have stood in George's way in 1999. He was still the god of SW. Hindsight being 20/20, it's easy to say someone should have kept him in check and pushed back on some of the decisions being made. And I'm sure...

    Iger and Chapek Livid With Lucasfilm

    There's a scene in BTS documentary for The Phantom Menace that I think somewhat explains the actor output. There's a scene on the queen's ship where Obi-Wan is in a conversation in the cockpit. George likes the take but dislikes that Ewan was not looking in the direction he needed. So he took...

    Iger and Chapek Livid With Lucasfilm

    WHile the only part of the ST I personally thought was "brutal" was the dumpster fire that was TRoS, I do agree that most of their problems can be traced back to indecisiveness. Whether that's from Disney or LF, they clearly have had trouble staying any course they select. Occasionally that...

    Iger and Chapek Livid With Lucasfilm

    I don't agree that it's as bad as possible. It could definitely be worse. I mean it could be Sony circa 2015. But I do agree it probably could be better managed than it is currently even if I am more favorable on the overall output of the Disney era than you.

    Iger and Chapek Livid With Lucasfilm

    This goes both ways. Not everyone who hates the Disney Era is a wingnut and not everyone who loves it is a shill or deluded fanboy. There are haters and lovers of the new films who each have valid viewpoints. The internet doesn't generally allow for nuance, but the truth of these matters fall...

    Star Wars Poll : The Prequels vs The Sequels

    Mine is heavily weighted by my extreme love of The Last Jedi (I know, I know...that's controversial). I was lukewarm on TFA and didn't like TRoS all that much. But none of the prequels crack the top half of the list for me.

    Star Wars Poll : The Prequels vs The Sequels

    Probably vastly overthought my answer here. But ranking each of the saga films in order of preference and assigning a numerical value based in inverse to their standing (ESB my number 1 gets 9 points. AotC my least favorite gets 1) I chose Sequel trilogy which comes in with 14 points vs...

    Wilderness lodge bus song

    Possible it was this one? I believe they still play this on the WL bus. One of the only times I was ever in WDW and heard a song from my own personal collection. Very strange to be on a bus listening to BGM and suddenly feel like someone plugged in your ipod.

    Best Extinct WDW Foods

    Seconding the Fettuccine Alfredo from the old Italy restaurant. Also, digging deep, back in the early 90's they had this drink at the Grand Floridian called a Purple Penguin. I was probably 11-12 when I got it. I have no idea what was in it except it was bright purple, sickeningly sweet and...

    Animal Kingdom Lodge or Coronado Springs Tower Room

    This is anecdotal obviously, but I've stayed at AKL 10 times over the last 10 years. (Never in November, but Jan, Feb, May, Aug, and Sep) I've never once noticed a mosquito problem. Not any worse than any place on property anyway. I would guess that the review you mention might have been an...
