    News Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge (Project 89 - Development near Fort Wilderness)

    If nothing else, it's good that at least River Country is finally gone and out of its abandoned misery. It is disappointing if it's true that nothing will be happening there though.

    News Target coming to Walt Disney World and Disney Store shop-in-shop coming to Target stores

    I am usually disappointed when I look around in the couple of mall Disney Stores around here. 95% of the merchandise seems to be for toddlers/young kids. I understand it's a huge part of their business, but there are many adult Disney fans out there. I don't understand why adults are basically...

    News Future World confirmed to be split into 3 neighborhoods

    Is anyone else as refreshed as I am that at least two of the things -- the Space restaurant and the Planet film -- don't seem to be IP based? It's only two things, but it's been so long since Disney's opened anything non IP based, so I'm kind of excited.

    Magic Bands off property?

    If you are staying off property, it sounds like you do not get a Magic Band by default, which makes sense. I've read that you can still buy one, but is there really any point/advantage? I was hoping to link a CC to a Magic Band just for paying for merchandise around the parks, but it sounds like...

    Why doesn't WDW put extinct rides in Disney Springs or Boardwalk?

    Nostalgia is a powerful thing. While I would love to see something like this happen, the fact is that ridership at attractions like Horizons, Mr Toad, etc was obviously down and this is part of the reason they closed. While initially, if reopened/re-imagined, they would draw big crowds due to...

    What exactly is the situation? I agree, he was a great poster

    WDWRR closing, Thoughts?

    It seems the Railroad is closed far more often than it is open, but I guess it is inevitable sometimes.

    Something isn't right about what happened to Buzzy. (NOT NEWS/RUMOR)

    As much as I understand it is ultimately just a machine, I get where you're coming from. It would be nice to just have a concrete answer. Will we ever get it? Who knows. A small part of me hopes Buzzy will make some type of appearance in the new pavilion, even though I really doubt it. Outside...

    Animal Kingdom Needs Attention

    I think we are going to have to wait awhile before anything substantial happens at AK. Not that Disney doesn't have the money to pour into all the parks at once, but with everything else going on, I'm sure they are not allocating large rehab budgets to the AK at this time.

    Small World Disneyland vs. Small World WDW

    Disneyland's to me is more elaborate and nicer, at least with the facade and appearance, especially around the holidays. WDW's is bland in comparison.

    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    I'm kind of torn on this. Glad to see the space kind of being used, although it still isn't really a full blown "use" of the space in my mind. The more confusing aspect to me is why don't they just use the almost completely wasted Innoventions buildings for this purpose and put a real...

    deleted

    Yes, unfortunately, as much as I like the classic Epcot, the fact is that Future World as it stands is embarrassing. It probably should just be all torn out and started over (except Spaceship Earth). There is no cohesive theme, no backstory, and no purpose. But as stated earlier in the thread...

    Rumor Wonders of Life getting an attraction soon?

    Inside Out seems like a natural fit for the Wonders of Life pavilion, but my question is does Disney even view it that way anymore? Or is it just a blank slate building they can use for anything? Inside Out may seem natural for the prior theme of the building, but who says they will continue...

    News Buzzy’s been stolen?

    I find it pretty hard to believe he was stolen. Not impossible, since obviously someone took his clothing, but it seems like an entirely different matter to steal the entire animatronic without being noticed. I think he was purposely removed for archives. That's just what seems to make the...

    WDWRR closing, Thoughts?

    Between Disneyland and WDW it seems the Railroads are both closed more than they are open. While I understand the construction reasoning it seems Disney could come up with ways around it (run backwards, block views of construction, etc). It's better than having a signature attraction constantly...

    What if this thing fails?

    I do think they are slowly pricing people out, and people are spreading the vacations out further and further. I don't see WDW failing, per se, but I do see it changing and not all for the better. People also do have other options for vacations, and Disney need to keep that in mind. Some of...

    News Disney removing plastic straws and more by mid-2019

    I don't know, I'm kind of on the fence. Working retail I see that in general people definitely tend to waste plastic bags. You don't need a bag for a pack of gum. Or two bags for two small items. etc. So, I get the point of cutting down on it. You can accumulate too many reusable bags because...

    World of Disney Refurbishment

    Meh, it's okay. It looks nice and all, but it also looks relatively generic. Doesn't have the old school Disney charm and whimsy. Kind of reminds me of how I prefer the older style mall Disney Stores vs the newer. The old one is more charming, comfortable, character filled. The new one more...

    Transportation opinions from All star

    The bus to the Magic Kingdom from All Stars felt like a long ride to me. The monorail may not be quicker by the time you wait in line though. It really depends. Sorry, not the most helpful response 🤣
