    Did Disney put too much stock into Star Wars?

    Is Star Wars really going to be as popular as Disney thinks? I know it will be popular, and I know Rise of the Resistance is not open yet, but initial reports for Star Wars California is weak. I know it is not just Star Wars Disney is preparing for, but they have focused on increased prices...

    Gunn Returns

    It is being reported that James Gunn has been rehired by Disney for "Guardians of the Galaxy 3" This has to be the most disgusting disspointing decision Disney has ever made, and outweighs any price increases, quality control, and reduction of benefits ever. Does this mean Roseanne and John...

    Apple Watch as Magic Band.

    Does anybody have any information regarding the use of an Apple watch as a magic band? I remember reading this was part of the original implementation, and did a quick elementary search looking for people who may be experience using it, but have not found much. I am looking for details on...

    Trip Report WDW lost magic? Go to Disneyland.

    For those of you who are losing faith in WDW, there is good news, go to Disneyland. I recently took the family (myself, wife, and a 3 and 6 year old) to Disneyland to experience Disneyland/California Adventure while WDW looks less attractive to us with all the construction currently, and my...

    Moat around Cinderella's castle ever clear?

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody, and one of the things we were doing this morning was watching some old footage of Disney World when I was a child in the early 80's. One particular part of the video caught my attention and started a small debate. The footage seems to show clear/treated water in...

    Why is Doc McStuffins at HS 7 feet tall?

    Why are all the characters that meet at Hollywood Studios from Disney Jr. in a costume suit? I just got back from a week at Disney World, and I cannot get the image of Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and Jake from the Neverland Pirates out of my head. These characters that meet at Hollywood...

    Halloween alternatives to MNSSHP

    Does anybody have any advice on how to spend Halloween if you are not planning on attending the Not So Scary Party? Are there any other places blocked off and safe for trick or treating such as Downtown Disney (Springs) or Celebration? Do the resorts offer any anything on Halloween? Any...

    Change in Reservations no longer allowed?

    I have a trip booked further than 30 days out. Due to some changed in my schedule, I need to change our dates. I called Disney, and they claim the reservation cannot be changed. We now have to wait for guest services to 'approve' our request for change. I was finally on-board with the...

    Trip Report Trip report from ... Canada's Wonderland?

    After spending some time at another theme park other than Uni/SeaWorld/Gardens, I thought it would be interesting to share some observations from another giant - Canada's Wonderland. What stood out the most were the grounds. Walt Disney World is still a gorgeous, well designed destination, and...

    Name one thing Disney has done right.

    As a member of this forum for a short time, I find it humorous what people discuss to complain about. In fact, it seems like even the most positive news has something negative attached to it. Some valid, others not so much. So the challenge is - name one thing that Disney has done right...

    Banshee Ride Rumor

    This is my first time starting a thread on this forum, and it will be several years before any credibility to this post is confirmed or denied, but here it goes. The Banshee ride rumor is that it will be utilizing an LED display. No IMAX projection, no screen. The LED video wall will be in...
