    Poll: It's a Small World load area?

    I think the original facade was “cute” when it was there, but I do not thing it would have held up well into 2020 or even past 2005. I much prefer the nod to DL’s facade. DL’s IASW facade is clearly superior, while the inside/show room portion is superior in WDW. Even though that has nothing to...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    I actually hated DLP’s Space when i first rode it because it was horrendously rough! But after they “updated” it to the star wars version and changed the restraints to give your head more space to move without banging against the restraint, it was a much more comfortable experience. The Indy...

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Um no. While Tianna, her family, and her people definitely lived in the poorer part of town, she fulfilled her dream of opening a restaurant. She was a hard worker, a dreamer, but believed that hard work was what would pay off, and it did. So she won and fulfilled the “American Dream.”

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Lol well I clearly have my facts mixed up. I didn’t know for sure what time period the movie is supposed to take place whether it was during slavery or after and I can kind of see how that might make a difference. But yes there are problems with the film and because the ride is ”loosely” based...

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Nothing if it wasn’t based from the stories of Brer Rabbit. Now that I think about it, there is a lot of things that can be racists about the attraction. The rabbit trap is a noose, the fact that Brer Rabbit is trying to “escape” the Briar Patch just to realize it’s “where he belongs,” as in...

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    Ok, seems there is a debate about whether he was enslaved or not. I should probably removed the “enslaved” part from my original post. However, it is a story being told by a black man during slavery. And there are a lot of real life examples that creep into the animated stories. Just look at the...

    Splash Mountain re-theme announced

    The only thing is that while it is essentially a ride about a rabbit, a bear, and a fox, it was told by an enslaved Black man which if you really look at it, is extremely controversial.

    Operational issues at the People Mover - no longer walk on and one mess of a queue

    Here’s my take on everything as someone who use to go to WDW yearly in the 90s through maybe 2012 ish. After that, trips for me become more scattered. I ‘blame” this whole thing on fastpass+. The maintenance and upkeep definitely contribute as well. As far as why the lines for this and other...

    Is Disneyland Paris better than the parks at WDW?

    Disneyland Paris is a very beautiful park. Without a doubt I would say it is the most beautiful castle park out of all of them. The attraction count is limited compared to the original Disneyland and even the Magic Kingdom but I will say if you can go you should definitely not pass up the...

    Rumor Cinderella Castle turning rose gold for the 50th

    I personally wouldn’t mind a temporary redecoration of the castle for the 50th. Just as long as it holds no resemblance to the abomination that was the 25th pepto bismal birthday hallucination. If they can decorate it for Disneyland’s 50th and make it look nice then I feel they can do the same...

    Hong Kong Disneyland E ticket??

    This will be my first trip to Hong Kong and HKDL. I'm still a little unsure about the E tickets. It looks as if you can just use your phone to scan it and when you get to the park they will print out a ticket for you, is this correct? Disneyland Paris I had to physically print out the ticket and...

    News Talking Mickey to leave Magic Kingdom

    How disappointing. I've never met talking Mickey, or even mute Mickey since I was a little kid. But if he continued to talk and really talk to you and not those pre-programmed phrases, I would have seen him one day.

    Rumor Tower of Terror to gain new theme?

    While Tower in TDS is amazing and possibly the best themed ToT out there, I would not want to see the store make it's way over to mgm. There is so much rich detail on and in Tokyo's tower that I don't think would be brought over, and I enjoy the Twilight Zone theme. This isn't the first time...

    How strict are the CMs in TDL and TDS about filming

    I noticed they were very strict with taking videos or pictures, but also to take your backpacks off before you get to the loading gate. They have a lot of extra CMs around the park in general, more than I've seen at any other Disney parks. The type of extra CMs you see in WDW that are there for...

    Excavator Coaster Coming to Dinoland U.S.A.?

    I didn't get to ride it in Paris because it was close, but the raging spirits at Tokyo Disney Sea is essentially the same thing from my understanding and I had heard how rough these type of coasters were but it wasn't rough at all. I think if they were to bring this to the area it would be an...

    [RUMOR] Imagination's potential replacement?

    For me, what I missed the most is being able to spend so much time there. I miss the whole pavilion concept, where you could ride a ride then go explore other things in the same building pertaining to that ride's theme. Personally I don't think the original imagination was as amazing as people...

    A War on Audio-Animatronics?

    I agree but disagree. If it's about being fully immersed, then ya a screen can do that. If it is done properly. However, there is nothing more amazing then riding through a scene that is chock full of amazing AAs such as Pirates, SSE, Mansion. What I've discovered is after the novelty wears off...

    I haven't uploaded a Youtube video in the longest, sorry it's not working for you. There used to be a way to simply click the link but now it adds the video directly to the post. What does it say when you try to watch it?
