    News Crossroads Plaza Faces Demoliton

    Can't say I will really miss anything over there (except maybe the Taco Bell), but it seems like this would be better solved by some flyovers that bypass the signal all together for people going to Disney. The Shopping center could left more or less as it is that way. This solution may end up...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    I think its a neat concept, but the experience in the hotel would have to be absolutely immersive and amazing for me to want to stay there. It seems more inconvenient to stay there as a guest than anything else.

    Am I the only one that thought it was weird the first barge had Mexico painted of the door? It makes sense now haha.

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Maybe Brightline will have bag service, but I can also see Disney having luggage service when you get off the train. I think at the very least they will have luggage storage if you want to do some shopping before you head to the resort. There are a lot of questions unanswered but Disney has...

    News Early Theme Park Entry coming for resort guests

    I'm not sure I want that system at WDW, but I was excited to try it on the trip we had planned. We were going to stay at Saratoga Springs, but were going to book a Universal hotel and possibly not even stay there just because it included Express Pass for everyone and would work out to be...

    News Early Theme Park Entry coming for resort guests

    When they bring Fastpass back, I would be OK with it being like what they do at Tokyo Disneyland or Maxpass. I'm all for going back to a model of not having to plan every single day of your trip months in advance. This extra time at every park seems like a step in that direction.

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    Agreed. Most of the time we stay off property. We were going to stay on property for the trip we had planned in April mostly for using EMH to get a Rise boarding pass. When you stay off property EMH is a sign of which park to avoid.

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    I understand the convenience but my family never used it, we always get a rental car. As for charging for parking at the resorts its also a non issue because we always drove to the park, because rental car. Paying for resort parking covers any paid parking areas at WDW for the day. Also I...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    People are inventing things to complain about. I mean, the globe had screens on it too.. how many times over the years did those not work? It also spun and opened. I'm sure there are times when that didn't go as planned but acting like for some reason these screens are going to fail 99% of...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    There is no reason they couldn't turn the screens on during the day, just to a blue color or some other daytime program to make them look a bit better. These type of screens are used as billboards along highways that are on 24/7, there should be no issue running these either.

    I'm not sure what you mean. The only issue I can see are the islands that were there before.

    Yes if the show is good people will ignore it, just like they seem to have done for the previous show.

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    Wow you are all very negative. You guys think the globe sitting out in the water or the previous barges looked any better? I'm sure they are just testing something or getting it out of the way while they work on the other ones. It may not even be finished yet, I'm sure there will be some sort...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    I continue to be surprised how people are reacting to this. Disney prepared for this well beyond any other similar system I have seen. I've never seen callboxes, emergency kits, special made rescue boats (not used in this case), access roads etc. The fact is, with this type of system...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    After looking at some more photos etc. I wonder if the incident was actually related to the track switch for the spur rail where the cabin was eventually moved to. It could also be that the launch was disabled, but the launch is controlled by a couple tires and it does seem that the cabin was...

    Disney Skyliner shutdown and evacuation - October 6 2019

    At the gondola I operated, the only similar incident I recall is that on one of the cabins, the door mechanism lever got jammed preventing the cabin from moving forwards. I was on the other side and pressed an e-stop because I could hear the screeching tires. The cabins didn't get jammed up...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    It's not nessesarily any harder to reset than a normal stop and generally anyone can do it as long as it's a 'normal' E-stop and not one caused by a fault. For any kind of stop, it has to be logged. Slowing is much better as slow is effectly stopped when it comes to the speed in the stations...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    All guesses here but I doubt it's a major issue. They are possibly already starting to implement changes to maybe the timing of the accessible cabins or the audio etc. Better that they are taking the time to do something now while the Doppelmeyr people are on site and on the least used line.

    Unfortunately things will get more complicated once the Riviera station is actually active and they need to leave space for people getting on there.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    I think there are signs, they just aren't super obvious. I know for a fact the Epcot line has sign for wheelchair line above the entrance. I would have expected them to put out temporary stanchions at CBR to extend and mark entranced of lines as necessary. Maybe they will start doing this...
