    Disney Looks to Relocate Its Theme-Park Magic Makers to Florida

    Company wants to send many of its famed Imagineers to a campus in Orlando, where about $570 million in tax incentives await https://www.wsj.com/articles/disney-looks-to-relocate-its-theme-park-magic-makers-to-florida-11627048801

    What Ride Would You Want to See Put in the Old Snow White's Scary Adventures Building?

    Yeah I've thought about how a ride could be put in the Philharmagic building. I feel like it really makes sense to have the classic Fantasyland dark rides right behind the castle and near the carousel (like Disneyland).

    What Ride Would You Want to See Put in the Old Snow White's Scary Adventures Building?

    Yeah, I think Sleeping beauty really needs a dark ride. #1 pick for me for this space.

    I'd definitely take that over what's there now.

    News Disneyland to give Snow White’s Scary Adventures dark ride a major facelift in 2020

    I thought that poster had been around much longer (or at least a version almost the same). I can't remember where I found this image (it might have been off the Vintage WDW Facebook group), but apparently WDW had one for Mr. Toad that was almost exact (unless this was a fan made poster someone...

    BAD experience at Smokehouse in EPCOT

    Yep, I went within about 45min of closing and it was pretty dead in there (was this past summer when things were still very quiet after covid). Seemed as if some the food been sitting out either at the end of or past it's holding time under the heat lamp. My brisket sandwich was sort of ok but...

    BAD experience at Smokehouse in EPCOT

    I really like the menu options at the Regal Eagle Smokehouse at the American Adventure. When I went though, the food I got seemed like it had been sitting out for a long time/not as fresh...

    Wait times

    Yes, exactly as I touched on in my previous comment (not the one you quoted). It is indeed faster with FP on an individual basis, but the current setup widens one's options for rides the whole day rather than a few rides with FP and a much longer wait for ones on standby you can't get FP for...

    Wait times

    Yes if standby with no FP is outrageously longer there comes a point where it doesn't matter if the line is moving. But for a ride like Peter Pan's flight, waiting 25-30min. with a continually moving line vs. waiting 10min. (or even slightly longer as I experienced on super crowded days) with FP...

    Wait times

    I've been loving no FP. Even if the wait is longer, having the line consistently move makes the world of difference for me. I love how the line for rides like Haunted Mansion and Peter Pan's Flight move blissfully quick as they are designed to. I was even surprised at how fast the Space Mountain...

    News Disneyland to give Snow White’s Scary Adventures dark ride a major facelift in 2020

    Yes, I hate the fact that WDW opted to expunge 2 out of 3 of their classic dark rides and then leave Fantasyland so lackluster without these classics which IMO substantially helps define Fantasyland as a whole. I really hope WDW gets at least a couple more in the near future but I'm not holding...

    My Disney Experience system status and outages watch

    Anyone getting a blank screen when clicking on the blue "Make a Theme Park Reservation" button? It's been doing this for the last 2 hours and the site is otherwise working fine. "

    News Walt Disney World theme parks increase capacity but see longer waits and less physical distancing

    Went to Animal Kingdom today and it was as crowded or less than when I went in early August. Flight of passage and Everest 15-20 min waits! Was able to do everything. Except for one sour-head at the Kilimanjaro Safari- most all the other employees were upbeat and cheery. Like I mentioned in...

    Jurassic Park Rollercoaster Coming To Universals Islands Of Adventure?

    I hate that they ruined the backside of the Discovery center with this new roller coaster. While the coaster looks like it will be really great- I think it is way too jammed into the whole area.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I've found that to be more true for MK and HS. Besides Frozen and Test Track, I've found Epcot to be quite sparse, even Soarin' having very low waits at times. AK not too bad too- I even heard Flight of Passage in the past week having less than 30 min wait at times . I think the latter two parks...

    News Disneyland to give Snow White’s Scary Adventures dark ride a major facelift in 2020

    Tokyo Disneyland SWA's I think is the best one. Retains all the classic, scary parts while still having the dwarves singing in the cottage- which I think is fine as it is a classic scene from the film and really makes sense for them to be in there vs. MK's 1971's dark nightmare cottage.

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    IMO, the New Fantasyland looks nice, but it lacks in quality and quantity. A short family mine train roller coaster, removal of a classic Fantasyland dark ride for a meet and greet, huge amounts of space taken up just for a restaurant (Be Our Guest) and a walkthrough show (Enchanted Tales) that...

    Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary Plans

    This... They really need to go back to their roots and get a couple more classic Fantasyland Dark rides. I think it would have been brilliant to bring back a reimagined Mr. Toad's Wild Ride for the 50th.
