    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    Wow I really tried to stay out of it but I cannot help myself. I cannot look away. I sort of agree with you in that their primary concern is avoiding bad PR because it is good for business. I have good reason to believe that these changes weren't initiated internally and that a group who was...

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    I think they will be trying to match the same technology that the ride has now as much as they can. No need for anything fancy when the remaining figures aren't changing.

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    Thanks for the history lesson? I'm not sure why you posted this in reply to what I said? Also, if you meant to reply to someone else's post, I don't think anyone is debating the truth of what you said, merely saying the Trader Sam (or Chief Namee) is a Marc Davis cartoony characterization of a...

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    I agree they could definitely do that but would that be better? I think keeping the figure just for the sake of his name is pointless, the whole joke of the scene is cannibalism/head shrinking. So replacing the entire scene just seems to make more sense than reworking the existing one for the...

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    Yeah, thanks! I think they are going to replace Trader Sam with a different scene, but avoided announcing that part so people didn't get too upset (see above upset people^) lol

    I think the skipper will be on the totem pole? It looks like they're going to completely reskin the AAs.

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    I definitely agree that it seems strange, but my thought is that they are trying to spread out the money to do as many projects as possible, even if it means some of the bigger ones get major alterations. Is it a good plan? We will see I guess!

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    I don't think they're anywhere close to starting the Splash overlay. I think the initial announcement was early compared to when they announce most projects.

    I think he fits under the description of "negative native depictions" so I'm going to guess that yes, he's leaving.

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    I'm going to guess standard pneumatic figures so they don't have to do major updating to the very aged infrastructure. They're not going to want to throw tons of money at this small of a project.

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    That would be really cute, but I'm sure they want to avoid adding any more railroad/train adjacent attractions to avoid confusion. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Walt Disney World Railroad, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train all get jumbled in the minds of most guests unfamiliar with the park.

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    They're all still furloughed. Better question is where the operations cast members will come from.

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid is done, won't reopen with the parks.

    The show has been rumored to be closing for years. Everyone who works/ed there wouldn't have been surprised if the show was finally closed. And I can't blame people for finding those rumors credible because Disney hasn't put any significant investment into the attraction in such a long time...

    News Buzzy’s been stolen?

    They absolutely palm scan cast members during onboarding. And you are correct, however the Epcot cast parking lot is also considered backstage. But there is definitely a security gate if you want to go further backstage than that parking lot, and unless you have business being past that gate...

    Innoventions into Big Hero 6

    https://disneyauditions.com/audition-calendar/ Noticed an audition call for "scientific interns" in a laboratory environment for a new comedic improvisational show! Wondering if this maybe has something to do with this rumor?

    Pet Peeve: Mis-using the term "ride"

    This was difficult when I was a CM because for some guests, especially some foreign guests who didn't speak fluent English, the word "attraction" means nothing to them. Some called them games, or rides, or shows. And those words mean different things to different people. Once someone came up to...

    The Yankee Trader closing for refurbishment - is a dedicated Haunted Mansion gift shop coming?

    The wagon hasn't been there for quite some time, and will probably not return. It used to be right where Kingdom Crossing is now, so it would definitely be in the way of the walkway.

    The Yankee Trader closing for refurbishment - is a dedicated Haunted Mansion gift shop coming?

    Hi everyone! Speaking as a former maid, the Yankee Trader is definitely becoming a HM gift shop, just in case there was still a question about that being true. As for the on ride photo/video thing I have heard about a video during the Hitchhiking ghosts scene from a friend who worked in...

    The Yankee Trader closing for refurbishment - is a dedicated Haunted Mansion gift shop coming?

    Hi, former maid here!! I can't speak for the old canoe dock, but the keelboat building is used to store inventory for the Yankee Trader, and the queue is sometimes used at the mansion if the line gets insanely long. They wouldn't be a good fit as a gift shop because they are on the entrance...

    Haunted Mansion update

    Sooo I work there, and I hadn't noticed that Mr. Toad was back from vacation or heard about it, but I don't really look up there that often. I will make sure to check today! And about the ring...the ghosts are polishing it...hopefully it will be back soon. PM me for details!
