    News New Club Cool opens Summer 2021 at EPCOT

    Very much smaller in terms of drink stations. Square footage is probably close. But just 6 drink stations. Ridiculous.

    Hoop Dee Doo?

    Also -- the animation team on Lilo 100% modeled Nani & David's work on Luau Cove. I believe they used some of the fire dancers for live-action reference for David's act.

    News Expose reveals WDC control in online fan community

    That’s mostly true, but when the A-E tickets were in place admission topped out at $8 (1980 just before 1-day passports replaced A-E) That would be about $25 in today’s dollars. The Most popular ticket book would be another $35 including the transportation ticket you mentioned. So $60/day In...

    You’re coming across really cold and hard-lined on multiple fronts. Not sure if that’s your intent. A few points: Central Florida is largely a tourism-based economy. There has been some diversification in the past decade or so, but not as much as some would have you believe. Tens of thousands...

    Living With the Land Boats

    Human nature. Some people’s accounts were exaggerated into horror movie territory (the truth was awful enough). Others want to deny anything that bad can happen at Disney, some just like to sow doubts on anything “official.” I favor keeping a healthy bit of skepticism, as sometimes it leads to...

    I assure you. It was quite real. We covered the story extensively. I was called In to help that night. In addition to witness reports, and where the child was found, I’ve read the autopsy report. Not to be graphic, but there was Definite evidence of gator attack. To get back on topic, the...

    Living With the Land Boats

    I’ve never seen them back since Lane Graves died. I‘m local and ride Living nearly every trip to Epcot (which seems to the only park with reservations open last minute)

    Living With the Land Boats

    I'm a huge fan of live-spieling where it adds something, Kilimanjaro Safaris is the best example, Jungle Cruise the longest-running, and I'll pour one out for Great Movie Ride. But Living With the Land is a much better experience with the recorded narration. I didn't think it would be when I...
