    The Red Button Option

    Poseidon Adventure dark ride when?? (Seriously, I’d be ALL for it.)

    Man, that gif is hypnotic as heck. I can’t look away.

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    I’d argue that the entirety of Splash Mountain is (mostly) a book report of the animated sections of Song of the South, just plussed and expanded upon. I wouldn’t mind this sort of treatment for Princess and the Frog, rather than the dumbed down version we got with Little Mermaid. My main...

    Country Bear Jamboree Updates?

    Same here! I had no idea. I vote for a name change instead of removal, as he’s easily my favorite. Lester McGrowl? Like Lester’s Possum Park? We can workshop this.

    Heck, that was fast. Thank you, sir.

    Country Bear Jamboree Updates?

    I could of course be wrong, but I noticed this on my last trip in March, and interpreted it as them whispering to each other during the show. Maybe @marni1971 knows for sure?

    Country Bear Jamboree Updates?

    They’re better than they used to be-before Disney+, the only way to see the unedited Pecos Bill sequence in Melody Time in America, you had to import a DVD from Europe. They didn’t cut the painted desert verse, but did cut any references to smoking, going as far as to (inconsistently) digitally...

    Country Bear Jamboree Updates?

    Oof. Yeah, you’re not wrong. There’s also the line about how Pecos “Rolled a smoke and lit it.” It’s pretty catchy-they could retool it, I suppose. But I didn’t even consider the lyrics.

    Interminable ear worm that it is, Dig a Little Deeper would make for a great theme/thesis for the whole attraction.

    And I absolutely agree with that complaint. At the same time though...I feel like not including Tiana and Naveen as frogs at all ignores the “and the Frog” portion of the IP. Maybe the queue will retell the original story and utilize the area occupied by Brer Frog’s cabin. And if not, I have...

    I forgot about Ray’s...inability to be in the ride if it’s to take place after the film. They really need to rethink this.

    And that’s precisely what I’m afraid of. I really really don’t want a literal “Tiana’s Greatest Hits” experience.

    I do hope you’re right, and that the retheme is as plot-driven as Splash Mountain.

    I agree, I just wonder how they’ll justify his existence if they’re dead-set on it taking place after the film. That entire scene is just stunningly created, with gorgeous colors that pop from the screen. It practically warrants a dark ride by itself.

    Since they’re going through with this wise and not at all misguided plan... I’ll just say that I think setting the story after the film ends is limiting them creatively. This means no Tiana and Naveen as frogs, and perhaps most criminally, no way to include Dr. Facilier and the amazing Friends...
