    News Festival of the Lion King returning to Disney's Animal Kingdom summer 2021

    With the rumors over the death of Nemo, I was really fretting FotLK being at risk - so this news is really welcomed. When the Disney Parks Christmas special didn't mention that Titus was in the show and just said he started out as a "cast member" it had me really worried. This is really good...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Are they getting ready to open 2022 bookings? Because that usually happens in summer, right? Or are they trying to let the anger over this subside BEFORE they open bookings in a few months?

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Definitely knocks the odds of air for us to WDW downward quite a few pegs. We're pretty certainly doing the autotrain to Sanford our next trip.

    News Early Theme Park Entry coming for resort guests

    One of my best memories was walking out of Haunted Mansion at the end of EMH just after midnight and them flipping on the worklights just as I exited the crypt hallway. The CMs had been knowingly nodding at me for the past hour or two as I'd ridden 13 times straight. :) Late night EMH were pure...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    My parents were always car renters, so my first MDE experience was our honeymoon in 2014 and we fell in love with the idea of being "safe" in Disney's hands from MCO to MCO. What did Mears' service look like pre MDE? Luckily, my wife and I have pretty much decided to do auto-train for our next...

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    This feels like a surrender to Universal and maybe a huge peek into the financials at the moment - ANY visitors on property are now preferable to CAPTIVE visitors on property. Also, I'm sure Mears is so pleased with staring down the barrel of that loss of revenue. Will they institute a...

    News Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom closing Jan 24th 2021

    That display has remained even through the use of the space for Sorcerers - we noted a patch from our town’s fire department last trip waiting to start up our Sorcerers game.

    News Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom closing Jan 24th 2021

    Same exact boat here. My wife is obsessed with the game and she kinda dragged me into that obsession. We'd spend a couple hours in the Kingdom playing each trip. And she'd usually devote half her solo day of a visit to playing the game and snacking around the park. I was so proud of her when she...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    Wasn’t the globe for Illuminations stored outdoors backstage and exposed to the elements? So protection-wise that seems on par with anchored in the middle of the lagoon. Will repair be tougher? Likely. Impossible? Not really. This all seems like sour grapes around Illuminations being retired...

    Micro Disneyland Dioramas

    I've designed a Mr. Toad ride vehicle and tried printing it at HO scale - but at this scale they're just insanely tiny. But printed at O scale they look nice... just gotta figure out the right diorama for it. Also, I don't own an inkjet printer, so I'll need to jump that hurdle. I know... irony...

    Micro Disneyland Dioramas

    So, I've been playing with the idea of starting an Adventureland themed HO scale model railroad (see this thread over at Burnsland). But that has me thinking more and more in HO scale. Plus, with the pandemic, my 3D printer which used to live in my office at work now lives on a table in the...

    Disney Bits and bobs!

    Nice! Make any progress on your Cindy castle?

    A sequel? Nah, not this one

    I mean - tourism demand isn’t there at the moment and opening a new E-ticket isn’t going up that demand with the pressures of the virus and economy. Better to mothball it in a park that doesn’t “need” any added attraction capacity (because there are no visitors to soak up) and play the grand...

    Tower of Terror Basement Elevator recreation at my home

    I’ll test it at a smaller scale on my bed first, then if and when I’m feeling the mood I’ll chop the model into pieces and print them bit by bit. I have an Ender 3 Pro.
