    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    They haven't announced dates because they don't know when they can go back to doing construction work ...but I think the idea of a princess ride, that's also a thrill ride, with a 40 inches height requirement... is an idea that may need to be reworked a bit

    What will be the next change in an attraction?

    Well my point is that when Disneyland first opened, their Frontierland area hosted actual Native American tribes preforming and teaching the park guest about their culture... similarly you see this in Epcot's World Showcase, with performers and musician from the different host counties today...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    Yeah I know what it's "driven by", but people like yourself simply accepting that... is the real problem I think they could use this as an oppertiuty to 1 Celebrate the history of the Walt Disney Company and Walt Disney Animation, and at the the same time introducing the public the actual...

    Have you seen Song of the south in its entirety

    It used to air on TV when I was a kid in the early 80's... it's kind of a heavy movie, but it's difficult on purpose... anyone ever seen "Old Yeller"? "Song of the South" was made before there was television in a time when people got their information at the movie theater. Watching a news reel...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    I joined this site few years ago because I heard that Fantasyland was getting several new attractions themed to Tinker Bell's Pixie Hollow, and Cinderella's Chateau was going to be added just outside the new castle walls (like it is in the movie) and that Sleeping Beauty's cottage would also be...

    What will be the next change in an attraction?

    I voted "other" because I think it's really weird, and somewhat insulting that Pocahontas "Meets & Greets" in the park for animals... instead of Frontierland

    Maid Marian in Parks?

    That sounds about right, it's been a while since I can remember seeing her. Although they were doing "surprise meetings" of older characters in the mornings in Town Square a few years ago... I remember the Robin Hood characters were the "surprise characters of the day" once during the promotion...

    The Splash Mountain Appreciation Thread

    I asked my 9 year old niece what she thought of this tonight, and she said that Splash Mountain was her favorite ride and she didn't want it going away, she liked the "big drop" but also "the bunny" ...that's how children see it

    Shouldn’t the Haunted Mansion’s Hanging Body Scene be removed?

    If "scary stuff" offends you, then don't go in The Haunted Mansions I'm offended that the stupid "Gravitron with a video game in it" called Mission Space replaced the awe-inspiring Horizons attraction, so I've never stepped foot inside Mission Space, because I'm offend by "stupid stuff". I'm...

    Maid Marian in Parks?

    When I was a kid, in the late 70's and 80's, you would see her and the rest of the Robin Hood characters a lot. That movie was brand new when WDW opened and they didn't have a lot of big hit movies until Roger Rabbit and The Little Mermaid came along in '88 and '89

    POLL: Are you in favor of the Splash Mountain Re-theme?

    So where is appropriate to talk about what the intention of "Song of the South" is actually about?

    Downfall of the American Adventure pavilion

    Princess and the Frog isn't a movie about Cattle Ranches... is it?

    Anyone else had enough of film IP attractions?

    Don't mean to be mean, but you totally missed the point... When Frank Wells died things went off the rails with Eisner is the point, "the team" fell apart and Eisner did all kinds of crazy stuff on his own... he split up the Animation team so they could do an animated movie a year and the...

    Downfall of the American Adventure pavilion

    At the risk of going even further off topic here... I don't have a problem with Splash Mountain, but clearly people do. My issue is that putting Tiana in the Disneyland version of Splash Mountain makes sense there, and clearly that artwork was designed for Disneyland, because it's on the edge of...

    Anyone else had enough of film IP attractions?

    I'm getting sick of IP attractions too, but the way they run the company now, and the way the priorities of the company have changed drastically since Bob Iger took over, makes it tough to do anything else in the parks. The simple explanation is that Walt Disney could afford to create original...

    Downfall of the American Adventure pavilion

    If people weren't so in love with that riverboat they could add a lot of things in that area of the park. Honestly Magic Kingdom should have a ride about the Princess and the Frog in Frontierland, it should probably have an attraction about Pocahontas and all the great music from that film...

    Fantasyland Expansion Phase III: Escape From Tomorrow(land Speedway)

    I think they should re-theme The Diamond Horseshoe to Tiana's Palace. The interior already looks very similar to the movie, and it would fit well between Liberty Square and Frontierland, plus if they ever permanently park the river boat they should bring back the Tiana show that was on the...

    Will ANYTHING ever happen to Discovery Island?

    Will ANYTHING ever happen to Discovery Island?

    Discovery Island was a "half day" experience at best, and is roughly the same size as one of the lands in the Magic Kingdom, you could maybe fit Adventureland on Discovery Island but that's about it. It was also very low tech, it had a few bathrooms on it but not a lot in terms of utilities like...
