    News Sleeping Beauty's Castle to be refurbished

    Sure... but when they completely gloss over what she's actually done since most of it really isn't worth mentioning, that's where there's issues. Especially when she's being declared "the person most responsible with preserving the look and feel of Disneyland" as she actively bastardizes the...

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Impressions/Specifics

    It'd actually be great to get a complete copy of this thread + all the photos and videos linked, since I'd imagine this is the most comprehensive record of the land's construction done by fans, since it pulls from excellent bloggers, vloggers, and members of the community. Plus I'm pretty sure...

    News Sleeping Beauty's Castle to be refurbished

    After decades in Imagineering, Kim is introduced not by her resume, but instead by her lineage. "Her parents were WED designers blah blah" Let's compare this to Tony Baxter, who is instead introduced by his long list of incredibly done lands and attractions.

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Impressions/Specifics

    What I'm curious about is if any of the attractions will cause an emotional connection like Splash Mountain or the Haunted Mansion does for me. Something about those rides makes them seem far more meaningful than simple theme park attractions. Heck, even the Fantasyland dark rides elicit some...

    Disneyland New "Flex" Annual Pass

    I've never once advocated for that. Plus, this isn't disney blocking AP's, it's Disney selling more AP's while keeping each previous tier available. All this is gonna do is make the park more crowded.

    News Paradise Pier Becoming Pixar Pier

    Haven't been to Knott's since I was in elementary school... and I think I've only been once. My attitude has always been "If I'm driving this far down the 5, I'm going to Disneyland" But since I'll be living in Anaheim this fall, it may make sense to get a Knott's pass since it looks to be new...

    News Paradise Pier Becoming Pixar Pier

    Florida does have harsher weather... so that's a very real possibility. That said, I've become increasingly unimpressed with the attraction maintenance across the Disneyland Resort. Disney can't be bothered to make the attractions they have look as good as possible, and now they're adding two...

    Disneyland New "Flex" Annual Pass

    I think this is actually highlighting a huge potential issue with Flex Pass- that Disney can arbitrarily decide how many reservations to allow per day, and mark days as "full" before even offering them for reservations. It's basically Disney giving the illusion of a cheaper pass with fewer...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    I remember critics complaints of the Starcade... "Why go to Disneyland just to play a video game!" It even had some Star Wars games- Disney's response? Turn the Starcade into a shop and built a nicer Star Wars video game on the other side of the park :p It also means, Smuggler's Run...

    News Paradise Pier Becoming Pixar Pier

    Wait... they can't even design a water fountain without it needing to be revised a few months later due to rust? Good grief. Honestly makes me wonder what design changes Galaxy's Edge is gonna need over the next year to fix flaws in the design.

    News New Digital Signboard

    Hopefully they adjust the brightness throughout the day to match whether it's day or night, and put a shade structure over it... digital screens like that never do well outside in the sunlight. Other than that, I think this is actually way better aesthetically than the old one.

    The Miscellaneous Thought Thread

    I assume each park is on a different counter, and the first time you go through the turnstile for each park that day counts as a visit. I also believe the TEA numbers are estimates and not Disney's actual numbers.

    The Miscellaneous Thought Thread

    Interesting that being open daily only boosted Magic Mountain's attendance 2%... I'd be curious to know if the park actually had a meaningful increase in revenue to offset the additional costs. Also, it's always amusing to see the huge discrepancy between DCA and Disneyland's attendance...

    News Sleeping Beauty's Castle to be refurbished

    Thanks for sharing that photo... looks more accurate than the oversaturated photos everyone's been sharing online. Definitely see what everyone's saying about the roofs looking fake.

    Farley the Fiddler: Disneyland’s roping, joking, fiddling cowboy hangs up his spurs and heads for the sunset

    Imagine the stories this guy has... 40 years working at Disneyland. Insane.
