    Rain forest Cafe :'(

    Partially true. Employees were furloughed but there is no mention of permanently closing any restaurants and there is no reason to think they would unless this situation persists for an extended period of time. Here is a quick breakdown of what is going on... 1. Employees were furloughed and...

    Possible Frontierland expansion

    I have very fond memories of that place. My grandparents would take me to Silver Springs every few months in the mid 70's (we always stayed in the Howard Johnsons right across the st) and Six Gun Territory was a frequent addition.

    Getting to and from cocoa beach and Disney resort

    Renting a car will be your most economical option. It is around 70 miles one way to Cocoa and even Uber will cost you around $160-$180 round trip.

    Possible Frontierland expansion

    This^^^ Just because you don't like it, does not make it bad. Playgrounds, splash zones, and even the speedway have their place.

    Possible Frontierland expansion

    Correct. I have not been keeping tabs on Poppins, but if that comes to fruition then that would be considered expansion as well.

    Possible Frontierland expansion

    You know I have long had an issue with this. Most of the "expansion" is nothing more than replacement. Sure, the new stuff will be more popular and will draw more guests, but the capacity of the park tends to remain the same or just slightly better. About the only real true expansion we have...

    Possible Frontierland expansion

    I never thought I would say this in my life but JT is at least partly correct. MK is going through a situation you commonly see with highways in civil engineering called induced demand. This, in a nutshell, is a state where any expansion increases demand equal to or past the capacity of the...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind attraction confirmed for Epcot

    I have a feeling you would like what used to be my office.

    Hollywood Studios / Indiana Jones

    I would love to see it, but I doubt anything will change until we start seeing 1/2 full theatres on a regular basis (eg Tarzan Rocks!)

    Hollywood Studios / Indiana Jones

    Or ever. Has the show ever received anything that could be considered a serious update since it opened?

    "The Last of Us" - HBO

    Looks interesting. I never played the game as I am an Xbox guy and I don't really care for third person format, but I watched the playthrough that Nolan North and Troy Baker did and there is no arguing that it was an incredible game with a great story. We can only hope that a being series will...

    News Haunted Mansion To Remain Closed For Unknown Reasons

    It could be something, could be nothing. I see our shop go months without a single mechanical hiccup and then they will get 4 before lunch on an odd Tuesday.

    News Haunted Mansion To Remain Closed For Unknown Reasons

    I would agree, but without knowing why it is designed like that is no different than saying the HM should have been fixed by now without knowing what the actual problem is. As an engineer myself, I don't design something to be deliberately hard to do. It is often the way things end up due to a...

    News Haunted Mansion To Remain Closed For Unknown Reasons

    Again, without knowing what is wrong it is hard to assign a time frame. 27 hours sounds like a really, really long time to do an oil change, but that is legitimately how long it takes to do on a Bugatti Veyron.

    News Haunted Mansion To Remain Closed For Unknown Reasons

    True. The current management does seem to be penny wise and dollar foolish, but a good central shop is something that can show it's worth on a spreadsheet so it might get a pass. Without knowing exactly what is wrong it is hard to say how long it should take to fix. Since it has been a few...

    News Haunted Mansion To Remain Closed For Unknown Reasons

    Given the size of WDW and the number of unique parts they would need at any given time, having onsite fabrication abilities would probably be more cost-effective then subbing it out. My experience might be unique, but most fabrication shops have had had to deal with are not in a hurry to do...

    Jungle Cruise boat sinks!

    Quite correct. The things are basically sealed floating tanks. I would wager that once you were in one of those things, the chance of you getting injured from physically rolling around and being impacted by loose items would far outweigh your chance of drowning.
