    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Historical Construction/Impressions

    I'm trying to confirm; but, best I can tell - the news from yesterday isn't really a delay as much as it is an acceleration for part of the plan. Granted, my sources are primarily in the Lucasfilm side of the project and at this point the project is mostly in the Parks side of the house. If...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Repurposing a meme I once read... Any T-shirt is sleeveless if you are brave enough.

    Universal Studios Florida vs Islands of Adventure

    I don't know... it's close. "Yer the most reliable form of transportation these days Harry... er, Joe. " For all of those that keep wanting Potter-swatters at WDW... be careful of what you wish for. You don't want to swat Joe when he's just trying to get you back to the TTC late at night...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Analogy time: frog hopper>Alcatraz>>>ToT>Intamin giant drop>Larson drop towers For those that haven't been on a frog hopper, think of this kind of like FoP's "drop" mechanism. Just enough to catch your tummy; but, not enough to get you or the RV out of control. Here it is just used for the...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I would love for the original Tomorrowland Disneyland pitch artwork to surface... just to be able to read all of the fan community backlash. Toontown would be neat to see as well. It would've had a much more undercover and wouldn't have been as majestic as what we're ending up with.

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    It's almost like it wasn't designed with DHS in mind... or re-re-engineered to fit on LMA's plot of land. One of the guiding inspirations for Scott's team was New Orleans Square; but, set in the SW universe. People per square inch is going to be a real problem for both coasts. Crowd flow...

    News Santa Falls On Parade Float

    Egg nog doesn't melt steel sleigh runners. Wake up sheeple! This was clearly an inside job. Nightmare inducing real world Bing Bong's revenge is a dish best served with milk and cookies.

    News Disney After Hours Events expands to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom

    While this is 100% true... Disney isn't the problem. We are. We are the ones letting them do this. They have literally been playing a game of monetary chicken with their customers for more than a decade. They keep trying to find the point where we all wise up and say enough; but, the thing...

    D23 Disneyland/DCA Predictions!

    Beastly transport was axed because Orlando was too cheap to want to pay the long term operational costs and by that point of the development cycle - both coasts were destined to be a joint venture. This decision did have a positive impact though. It was the death knell for One Disney. After...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    The RV system was way ahead of its time and could've easily been repurposed and pressed into service for a Guardians attraction (via square peg meet round hole mentality) if it had to. It would've been very, very easy to make a 45 minute long trip into the cosmos that could've had allowed for...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    It's not even the most ambitious ride system ever created on the particular plot of land it's on and building it gutted. A Vekoma launched coaster on a microwave oven's rotisserie turntable doesn't begin to hold a candle to true innovation like the ride it replaced unfortunately.

    News Another Little Thing from the Neighbor Lady - Star Wars Preview Center

    I had someone recently PM me asking if I still had a pulse... Thanks for sharing this as it give me an out. I was asked in August to keep quiet about some things because we are on the cusp of having a bunch more official news being released. The Blue Sky Cellar is one of those things...

    Baby Groot's House of Fun! (Formerly - Haunted Mansion needs to go)

    As Uncle Ben (from Bob's acquisition and not the box of rice) said: "With great power comes great responsibility" … I present Bing Bong's Nightmare's triumphant return. It was really better suited to the Haunted Mansion the whole time. Placement is everything in the theme park business...
