    That time we almost lost ToT

    I, too, remember reading about concerns over the name. Just a sensitivity issue. The combination of tower + terror would create strong association with 9-11, not a happy thought you want to have in a Disney park. I have no memory if this ever was (presented as) more than just online fan...

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    That's an interesting thought experiment, to distribute IP chronologically. But, Disney never wants its parks to feel historical, but contemporary. Somewhat understandably, but also regrettably. Each park is at its best when it feels like a product of its time. That creates a unison between...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    "It is no longer grounded in entertainment, either" A slight difference in meaning. But kudos to Baxter, even allowing for some professional jealousy.

    Savi's & Oga's Question

    I was in and out in 30 minutes in Ogas. I wasn't pressed for time, it just was enough for my drink and to feast my eyes on the surroundings. Cool place.

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    This is why I publicly deny being a WDW fan. I can't be associated with this.

    Polynesian Resort.....The final nail in the coffin ?

    All SSL hotels were designed as a contemporary tower with thematic style elements, surrounded by lower level wings. Over time, the Poly tower got decreased and the Contemporary wings all but removed, and the Asian etc never built. Now thought of as opposites, the Poly and Contemporary were...

    Will Shang-Chi come to Walt Disney World?

    Shang-Chi is ABC more than Chinese. As such it would have been great for a Disney's America park. Or for a studio park, as an entry to showcase the huge Chinese/Asian presence in animation. As a strictly Marvel IP, separated from its representational aspects, in modern WDW anything goes, eh...

    What is Disney doing to its customer life cycle?

    If you can write an OP this composed and intelligent, including '5-stage customer life cycle', 'retention and advocacy', then TWDC has already moved on from you. Towards different demographies. WDW is no longer developed and operated with you in mind.

    You sound fun. Can we hang out sometime?

    EPCOT: 1982 vs. 2022

    Soarin' is one of the very few successful replacements in EPCOT. Even then, the Land of Symbiosis, Kitchen Kabaret and Listen to the Land was superior to any Land with Soarin'. More cohesive, better theme. And certainly more beautiful. Covered bottom to top in murals, carpets, electric...

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    It's entirely fitting FEA should get discussed in another WS ride thread where it doesn't belong whatsoever... 🤫

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    I loved Tron, that's the problem! ;) It's a really good first half of a ride. Rat is good and will be a success. 🐀 FEA sucks. A ride that's just a protracted M&G with Elsa singing Let It Go, because that's what the princess wants to see on her holiday and not Phoenicians or dinosaurs or...

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    That sums up my Tron experience. Wow, great start! Wow, neat screen effects! Whooo, let's see what will happen next, I'm now so ready for a great ride and...wait, wut, unload!?

    Disneyland: art masterpiece or corporate monstrosity?

    The blog is the BBC, the world's oldest and largest broadcasting corporation. But yes, 'DL: between art and kitsch' is an endlessly fascinating subject.

    Rumor Main Street Electrical Parade and A Christmas Fantasy Parade to return?

    As for MSEP, I don't care what anybody says, if they bring it out again I'm on a plane! 😍
