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

    Imagine if it was used to make Space the pavilion it should have been... If after your journey to Mars in the simulator craft, you boarded an omnimover much like the sea cabs in the Living Seas which would take from the transportation hub across the Martian landscape and deposit you in Base...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    I know it is... But there are/were a lot of other locations that had a more evocative feel for a turn of the century resort in Saratoga Springs... And they honestly didn't really use this example either anyway...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    that looks like a college campus... certainly not evoking a Victorian Gilded age New York retreat... Too plain...too usual... to much like everything in anytown USA... The old Garde imagineering team would have found something unique to recreate...Something that would be recognizable to a wide...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    open sided? not sure what that means... outdoor with a roof overhead? that theme is as intangible as Saratoga Springs Resort Style... no one really knows what they are trying to do... The original pavilions in Central park with their late Victorian design and Eastlake aesthetic would be a good...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    The theming for this resort has always been half-baked...It neither evokes a resort of the 1800s or a Victorian Spa. It looks like a 1990s condo project that someone added a little extra detail to. If "Saratoga Springs" is all about the beautiful parks, where are they? Yes there is a lot of lawn...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    Seems like TDO has outsourced all interior and hotel projects to the Marriott company. Charmless generic modern any hotel usa... Such a shame... Let's hope they don't get to any more in the near future...or until they have some new management that will realize that people are spending the crazy...

    The World's Most Magical Celebration - Walt Disney World's 50th anniversary

    So you can sit with a statue of Walt and see the asymmetrical disaster that the core of Future World has become? Somehow that seems unsettling considering what a mess the central focal point of this park has become... Perhaps if Dreamers Point were in front of Spaceship Earth it might makes...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    I have seen remodeled homes in Key West...We own one, and while this remodel is not the worst offender, it is too modern and lacks the warmth and charm of Key West... When you theme a resort to an actual place, and then decorate like it is an anywhere USA location with an added fish over the...

    Epcot's 40th Anniversary

    Expect nothing but a marketing campaign, then you won't be disappointed when there is no real celebration of substance... GOTG will open and they will switch gears and say it is for the 40th... Maybe they will have the central courtyard completed by then, but at this point I am not even...

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

    That is a bold idea...and a good one. I was always thinking that they should have an Imagineering pavilion in EPCOT and tie the park to Walt's Worlds Fair park and include the Carousel Of Progress as the Pavilion Finale... Re-create the tower of the winds in the forecourt... add one other...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    But IPCOT also requires them to spend money to bring in attractions that are sorely lacking... Seems more like it is about reducing the footprint, less to maintain, modest investment is the future... Sadly for the guests...

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

    So much could be done with that pavilion without having to tear it down...And something meaningful too. ..not a placeholder Wii showroom and selfie spot. It needs to be the headliner pavilion with a major attraction that it once was.

    News Primeval Whirl, Stitch's Great Escape and Rivers of Light permanently closed

    Problem is there should have been a replacement in the works before it was shut down...certainly before it was demolished. And we all know the smallest and simplest of attractions is going to have a 3+ year build time...so nothing new possible until 2024-2025 if they start now... And in that...

    World Showcase Messes

    Unfortunately there are no more things to really open except Guardians Of The Galaxy...any other additions to the World showcase were cancelled or never developed...Which is the biggest shame of all. It is an immense park that is desperately in need of more attractions. The Lakeside Restaurants...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    We have seen Steve Davison do amazing work. He is a talented and gifted artist and designer. He is following instructions... Would I prefer another show? Yes... If given no direction and allowed to create what he wanted, do I believe the show would have been astronomically better? Absolutely.

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

    I would be happy if they just cancelled Play! and put the money into Mary Poppins or a Coco Overlay for Mexico...Until a more creative team can be assembled to put something amazing (not place-holding) for that beautiful building. It is hard to fathom that after 40 years EPCOT would have fewer...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I would be OK with them going back to "We Go ON" or something earlier...Needs to be an original song that inspired the way all the original park music did...Tomorrow's Child. Horizons, One Little Spark... They were all beautifully done and park specific... I don't want to go to EPCOT to listen...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    It would be nice if some part of Harmonious was actually tied to the park...This show, while beautiful , did not feel like EPCOT, but just a random cartoon character show.

    News 'Disney Enchantment' coming to Magic Kingdom October 1 2021

    I can't believe they did not add the fountains that Paris and the other castle parks now have...that would have added a fresh new element rather than more and more projectors.
