    Is it worth at $700 savings to stay at Pop Century?

    If I'm spending time at a resort, I'll always choose a moderate over a value. POFQ is a nice resort to just walk around. You can also walk to Riverside and use their pool, I believe. That's two nice pools to use during your non-park days. Taking a boat to Disney Springs is one of those "only...

    BREAKING: Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios

    My understanding is Marvel gave up their 5% share when they made this deal, unless Spidey movies cross a certain threshold. This imbalance goes both ways in either case. Disney wants more of the Spider-Man pie, but are they going to give Sony a share of any Avengers movies featuring Spider-Man...

    BREAKING: Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios

    True, and I should clarify there's little reason for Sony not to walk away from such new demands from Disney. Yeah, being a part of the MCU has benefited them, but their own Spider-Man movies did fine on their own.

    BREAKING: Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios

    Why would Disney turn around and expect Sony to share 50% of Spider-Man film grosses with them? This always struck me as a win-win deal. Sony gets the bonus of being a part of the MCU, and Disney/Marvel gets to include their best known character in movies like Avengers. Who wins by walking...

    Trip Report The Tuvalu Chronicles ~ Chapter 25 *PART TU*

    I searched to try and figure out if there's a magic shot here and the Disney Photopass guide indicates there is not - Disney PhotoPass® Guide

    News Al Lutz Returns - Update: Page 18 Drama

    Before MiceAge he was a regular writer on MousePlanet. He was active on internet bulletin boards before that as well I believe. He was really one of the first to bring public light to Disneyland starting to lose it's way back in the day. Not just the DCA debacle, but a general lack of upkeep...

    Avengers Endgame Spoiler Discussion

    The movie does have a commentary at least, which is a substantial extra. Aside from a few too many "this actor is so amazing!" comments, it's pretty informative. At the end of the day, this movie will sell like crazy no matter what, so there's no incentive for Disney to spend money on extras...

    Disney Officially Confirms Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Underperformed

    I'd rather they do this and keep crowds *somewhat* under control, compared to the AP program.

    What would you do? - Value verses Moderate Resorts

    I would go for the longer stay, if these were my personal options. I love the moderate resorts, but only if I have some time to actually spend at the hotel. With five days, I would be hard pressed to justify 20% of my trip being a resort day. I'd prefer the longer stay, especially if it meant...

    News Al Lutz Returns - Update: Page 18 Drama

    Great to see, I really miss Al Lutz. He always had great inside information - not just rumors, actual information from real sources. He was critical of Disney when deserved, something that is in rare supply among "fan sites" these days. There's a reason he wasn't part of Disney media events.

    Disney Officially Confirms Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Underperformed

    If attendance is down, but spending is up, maybe Disney will start to provide a better experience for non-local visitors. Is word starting to spread that if you drop hundreds or thousands on a DL visit, that you'll packed in like sardines with locals paying a nominal monthly fee? Discounts for...

    When is Launch Bay going Bye Bye?

    WDW parks are so short on capacity that I expect so-so attractions like this to continue to stick around well past their best by date. Not unlike how Sounds Dangerous kept operating to the point it was embarrassing.

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    In fairness, I think it was The Force Awakens that painted the films into a corner, if anything. The so-called mystery of Rey's parentage? Many people wanted a big reveal like she was a Solo or a Skywalker, but that doesn't really fit with what TFA showed us, unless everyone involved was not...
