    Rumor Higher Speed Rail from MCO to Disney World

    The other point is that the majority of the DME busses have ongoing ads for Disney experiences - whether at the parks or Disney Springs on the way in, and for Adventures by Disney, Cruises and DVC on the way out. Sure, it seems like entertainment which the kids likes but I'm sure that Disney is...

    Does anyone else find Rise of the Resistance and Runaway Railway underwhelming?

    Hard to make a comparison but while we were not super-impressed with Runaway the first time or two, we really enjoyed it in our most recent vacation. While I would not have expected it to do so, it's grown on me. Similarly, my expectations for Rise were through the roof, so the first time...

    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad vs Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

    I definitely agree that BTM wins due to its length and - at least at WDW - it is an iconic pillar of the park (whereas at DL is seems just squeezed into the middle). That being said, while 7DMT loses out on its brevity (which was a blessing for our young one who didn't want something too...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    Exactly what I was thinking - that lighting will make a world of difference with this. That and actual tabletops. While it's nice of him to show a photo, it's definitely not a great look at what's to come

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

    In theory this explanation could take place in the queue of the ride - we certainly have enough time standing around waiting to ride. But that would only work for those who are at WDW intending to ride, and might not appease the cancel culture. I have not seen SotS and have to assume that it...

    Universal in 1 day?

    Is Horror Makeup available during the summer? I don’t follow universal at all!

    Universal in 1 day?

    Same question but different circumstance: we're going to Florida this next summer (life permitting) and thinking to break up a WDW trip with a night at Universal with their express pass/early entry that comes with the hotel stay. My question is whether to take the day before (should come with...

    Monorail beam cleaning?

    I was surprised by how dirty it looked when we were there in August. My guess would have been that it would not have been bad since no one had been using it...but is the dirtiness from the environment or from usage?

    News Holidays 2020 at Walt Disney World

    The projections on Cinderella's castle seem reasonable as well - though I probably prefer the decoration it had previously (the dream lights?) But I agree - there should be a reasonable theme. Just because the new decorations are easy doesn't make them good. Arendelle on HTH? Really?

    News Holidays 2020 at Walt Disney World

    So we're rarely (only been once about a decade ago) able to visit WDW over Christmas. For those who go - do the HTH projections work? The up close photos don't look great and it doesn't feel right to have TOT looking festive. But from Sunset Blvd at a distance, it looks like maybe it's okay?

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    We've been twice since the reopening (from Texas); and it's obvious that they're trying to look like they're providing the usual entertainment but it's certainly not the same. I'm not happy about the changes either, but their entertainers are intended to draw crowds which is counterproductive...

    Politics 28000 Layoffs coming to Disney's domestic theme parks - statement from Josh D'Amaro

    But it's where we are for now. The commentary suggests that they are fully invested in replacing their entertainment and hopefully it's not just lip service. WDW is certainly a stripped down version of what we love, but if that can keep things going, then I'm all for it If you don't want to...
