    Unpopular Disney World Opinions

    1 Living with the Land would be better with IP (Mickey digging, Minnie planting flowers, etc) 2 Jungle Cruise needs a lot of plussing (animatronics suck compared to todays technology) 3 Disneyland is far, far superior to Magic Kingdom 4 Nothing wrong with Disney's park admission pricing and...

    Could Disney face another hostile takeover attempt?

    A couple thoughts from this thread: Today, February 12, one of NPR's news stories was 'China says no new Covid19 cases reported in the last day'. Hopefully meaning China is getting a handle on this. On Disney's conference call, they mentioned Shanghai and HK parks down for two months and the...

    The Integration of Fox into the Disney Corporate Family: Parks, Movies, IPs, Studios

    Thank you for the education, I'll keep that formula in mind looking at box office numbers going forward.

    The Integration of Fox into the Disney Corporate Family: Parks, Movies, IPs, Studios

    Mr Penguin, is this right? Example, Ford vs Ferrari had around a 100 million budget if what I read online is correct. Box Office Mojo shows it grossing around 220 million worldwide. What source does your info come from?

    The Next Non-IP Attraction.. Will It Happen?

    Has anyone paid attention to the box office the last few years? What do the masses go see? Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, DC Comics.... There are some Indie film makers and Studio divisions like Fox Searchlight that put out great films but do they make any money in comparison to the Marvel's? Maybe...

    RotR: Disney is still not at Universal's level

    Sir Walter, I'm in complete agreement with you on those rides. Your revelation to me is that I had no idea that much was spent on the last two you mentioned, does seem excessive. Be well, thanks for the banter!

    RotR: Disney is still not at Universal's level

    Sir Walter, first, Merry Christmas! I'm asking this out of curiosity to understand your preferences: what ride systems in the last 25 years or so have you liked? I won't get to ride RotR until March, but the ride thru videos have gotten my excitement up. You? And speaking of Joe, I thought...

    RotR: Disney is still not at Universal's level

    Retroeric, I ask this with all due respect: are you in your teens or twenties? If older, all good. I ask because when I was in that stage of life, thrills were at the top of my list of what I wanted from a theme park attraction. I'm in my 50's now and for at least the last twenty years, theming...

    DisneySea at Walt Disney World?!?

    I would very much like DisneySea to be the 5th park. The US should represent the best of what Imagineers come up with. And even though it is opinion based, my observation makes me think most think DisneySea is the best of what Imagineers have come up with. The probability of this happening in...

    Next CEO

    Something I don't know much about: how soon are predecessors announced before the current CEO steps down? If Iger's last day will it be the end of the 4th quarter in 2021 (guess), how soon would we be told before that date? Wouldn't that be sufficient time for Meyer to step away from the day...

    Next CEO

    Wasn't Iger also pulling for Tom Staggs? If I remember correctly some on the Disney Board were not fans of Staggs and his name went away quickly and they he resigned. I think the board will have a lot of input and not just blindly except Iger's pick. I definitely believe Chapek has a shot but...

    Columbus Day Weekend = Huge Crowds!

    Omg, these crowds are ridiculous! Disney really needs to do something like open a new land or something to stem this. Unacceptable! Raise the prices!

    Will Disney ever build a resort in America’s second largest state Texas?

    I think in the 80's and 90's it might have been a thought. I remember rumors of Disney possibly buying land in Texas (San Anotnio - Austin area, if my memory serves me well). Airfare was ridiculously expensive compared to what it is today. My wife and I paid about 275 each round trip from...

    Walt, Bob, IP

    I must confess - I saw LotL at a 20 minute wait the other day on the app. I checked a few minutes later and it was lower, but still, a first for me: over ten minutes.

    Walt, Bob, IP

    Read the thread, I have been called out on this before. But lets check, here at 8pm on Wednesday, September 25, not the biggest crowds of course, but currently 35 minute wait for Test Track and Frozen, 10 minutes for Soarin, 0 minutes for LwtL.
