    Fantasyland wood effect?

    There is a specific term for it, I'm pretty sure it's mentioned in Younger's Theme Park Design but I don't have a copy near me right now. Most "wood" you see in the parks is essentially plaster sculpted to look like wood - as real wood isn't generally durable enough to stand up to tens of...

    Flight of Passage vs Millenium Falcon ride: Which is better?

    They're really at opposite ends of the spectrum on what a theme park ride should be. Flight of Passage is akin to a high-art Oscar contender where's Millenium Falcon is more like a really good popcorn movie. They're both fun and serve a purpose. I think if I'm by myself I'd pick FOP but if I was...

    Predictions! Secret WDC Project — August 22 @ D23

    I'd have to guess it has nothing to do with the parks and is something the overall company is doing - a new web service - maybe a social network, some sort of entertainment product, a new business akin to cruise ships, maybe something regarding all their IP, I'd kill for them to be creating a...

    Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere but does anyone know what the purpose of this building is in Galaxy's edge between droid depot and savi's? I'd assumed it was back of house, but it seems very large and it looks like it's been built with specifically high ceilings and such. Does savi's...
