    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    After watching the CNBC interview, my very unqualified reading between the lines: At the quarterly earnings meeting... Iger: I need to see the Q1 numbers for closing 2 parks and gutting EPCOT. Chapek: We're down about a $1 Billion. Maybe $1.5B. Iger: Guess who's in charge now? At...

    News Improvements coming to the entrances of all four Walt Disney World theme parks

    And if you have someone "trapped behind security", they're less likely to see the ticket prices and run away.

    Rumor Swan and Dolphin Tower Expansion - The Cove

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    This thread is growing faster than the original gondola thread. There's no way I'm keeping up with this one... btw - They totally need a fireman's pole to attach to the gondola's so people can just slide down to get out.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    The astro-turf is a bad call. They missed a great opportunity to "plus" the Skyliner with some cool landscaping or grass art.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Watch the incoming cars, and if yours is wrapped, let a party go in front of you. Seems easy enough to line this up a few cars in advance without much help from a CM.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Seemed taller than it needed to be in that section though... For evacs, it would seem that closer to the ground would be better.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    @Lift Blog I think I've read this entire thread, and I don't recall this being brought up before. Are there specific height specs (beyond the obvious height for street crossings etc.) for the tow line, or are they simply aesthetics driven? For instance, on the way to DHS, there's a place...

    2BR Waitlist for Columbus Day Weekend

    Looks like I might be the only yes vote... Not surprising actually. I just couldn't vote against myself. :) I've had DVC since 2009, and this is the first time I've had to waitlist. I'm usually a better planner, but this year I've been slacking.

    Rumor Light Rail / Tram Link for Disney Springs to TTC?

    I thought I read light rail in the article, but High Speed Rail is the terminology they used. http://www.fox13news.com/news/florida-news/construction-starts-on-high-speed-train-route-from-orlando-to-south-florida .

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    I'm impressed with the number of different themed cabins there are. I figured there would be a half dozen or so, repeated over and over again. This almost looks like Disney had an in-house competition to design the coolest gondola cabin, and they printed all the entries.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Could someone please annotate where the gondola pole is? They have camouflaged it so well that I can't find it. Maybe a @bioreconstruct style big yellow arrow would help.
