    'Lightyear' Coming Summer 2022

    Ooooh, good point! I'm still confused how Buzz Lightyear is a real astronaut from the future who got turned into a plastic toy that was in Andy's room back in 1995. I'm sure it's explained in the movie, but why even bother?

    'Lightyear' Coming Summer 2022

    You know what's funny about that? It also practically set itself up wirelessly for me; connected to WiFi, downloaded my Prime subscription, set up the right audio calibrations and backlight levels for the room, etc. all with just a few buttons on the remote and within minutes of the guys from...

    'Lightyear' Coming Summer 2022

    I bought a big new TV last month. The damn thing practically begs me to sign up for Disney+ every time I go to pull up YouTube or Amazon Prime. 🤣

    'Lightyear' Coming Summer 2022

    It seems to me that all of these streaming services will need to go the Cable TV route; require at least a year's contract, don't allow cancellations via the website, and make it as hard as possible to get connected to an operator if you ever want to cancel your contract. And then when you do...

    Or just start cancelling/restarting throughout the year as content of interest waxes and wanes. Like people now do with Netflix. With a recession now underway and soaring inflation, the middle-class family entertainment budget is one of the first things to get squeezed. As for Lightyear...

    'Lightyear' Coming Summer 2022

    Great, let's pretend that they double the price to $16 immediately to help cover costs. What prevents any family from cancelling, restarting, cancelling Disney+ every month or two as big new movies get released onto the service? They'd save a huge wad of cash by not paying $64 for four movie...

    Is Disneyland heading for a major tragedy?

    So, not just you. I've also had this same thought that @Phroobar had the guts to broach here. The CM turnover is reportedly very high. The old guard at all levels is long gone. TDA's senior leaders are clueless about theme park operations. Burbank execs seem more concerned about a few thousand...

    California’s Great America Closing…In Eleven Years

    This is sad. The last time I was there it was the 1980's and I think it was still called Marriott's Great America. I also vividly remember marveling at the young, um, ladies (giving the poor dears the benefit of the doubt) who were hanging out there in the 80's. All about 16 years old, but with...

    Magic Key Renewals?

    There's a winning sales pitch if I ever heard one. :D "If you've got low expectations and spread your payments out over a year, it's worth it!"

    Magic Key Renewals?

    Gawd, you make it sound like Calcutta on a bad day. 🤣 But I don't blame you. I also don't miss not having an AP. I also am confident I made the right decision by selling my OC home and moving out of state. 🧐

    How Does Somebody Get an EV Parking Space at Disney World?

    Nevermind charging up tourist's electricity-hog cars while they are staying at the Poly... There's a big push to rezone barely-inland San Diego county not far from me from commercial to housing. They want 6,000 "housing units" (AKA market-rate upscale apartments) within the next decade where...

    Yes, but we have to remember it's a small minority of folks. I have known married gay couples for decades before it was legal, and I only know of two couples who have children; An older Lesbian couple with one wife who is a reformed Mormon who was married to a man decades ago and had several...

    Yeah. But at least that alien guy has been working out. 🧐

    Wait, they've got Lesbian astronauts kissing now, but they have to screen the old stuff in the vault to make sure Kurt Russell doesn't wink at a pretty secretary in a miniskirt? The mind boggles at how this makes sense to a company who is marketing films to children. 🤣

    Well, then God love ya'. I couldn't keep them from wandering out to the lobby to play video games if there wasn't a messy paint explosion or a fart joke every 10 minutes. They both went on to Stanford. One just passed the bar and is now a corporate lawyer, and the other is an architectural...
