    Labor cost cutting measures begin at Walt Disney World as the company enters Q1

    He must be incredibly persuasive in meetings behind closed doors because he’s a total oaf in public.

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    I think the form may now be working against the “theme” or whatever we are calling it. An atrium of this cavernous size was awe-inspiring in 1971. Arguably, the first modern hotel with an multi story atrium was the Peachtree Center in Atlanta by John Portman in 1967. Then malls began having more...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    I don’t think you can go back to the og TL theming as it’s all space racey unless you went retro-80’s ala Stranger Things or Space Station 76. I wouldn’t be a huge fan of a retrofuturism theme as I described, but it’d at least be a cohesive theme instead of City Center Business Convention Hotel...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    Was in the lobby last week. It’s perfectly cromulent. Would not look out of place in any city center hotel on earth. I suppose retrofuturism is the “theme” of the Contemporary, unless it’s not. Which apparently was the case since it opened? And the answer to that “theme-less” void is an...

    Disney Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane Frequently Asked Questions for Walt Disney World

    LL is either testing or in use. They all have CMs at the guard and return times listed. Just wanted to share and see if anyone else noticed or has info. Edit: I suppose I could have read the post above mine more thoroughly. Carry on.

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance to begin Standby September 23rd

    I simply will never understand the “queueing for 6 hours” level of fandom for anything. ETA: ok so apparently 6 hours is not unheard of. My feet hurt just thinking about it.

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance to begin Standby September 23rd

    Yep, feeling like we may have lucked out with our 9/24-9/30 dates. Last chance to do wdw without Genie, standby for RotR so we could do that first day and get it out of the way. Hopefully get out of there before 50th crowds ramp up. Feeling pretty, pretty good (read that in Larry David’s voice)...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    I seem to be very much in the minority when it comes to giving themed environments and experiences a thorough and rigorous contemplation within the overall historical context of art, design and architecture, but that’s ok. I enjoy placing theme parks and such in a greater framework and viewing...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    I said as much in the next post. And so it went from being “contemporary” then to being “retro-futuristic-modern” today. That’s fine. I have no dog in the fight of what it should be. I guess I’m just now realizing I didn’t have the same reading of the theme/building that most do and perhaps...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    I find it to be at the intersection of modern and postmodern architecture. While a brutalist concrete structure, it’s also a comically oversized A-frame, lending itself to reading as a historical reference. Bit of a different discussion. You’re probably right. That very well may be the...

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    I didn’t think I needed to be that specific when I mentioned the Eames chair, as they are arguably the most well known icon of mid-century modernism. I personally don’t think it fits the theme of a “contemporary” resort, but perhaps I’m being pedantic or quibbling. I will just disregard the...

    I had to Google West Elm as I’ve never heard of it. Is the fact a rustic-retro-modern style furniture store misinterpreted the difference between modern art/design and contemporary art/design excuse Disney from also doing so? If Disney followed the trends the CR wouldn’t even exist.

    News Contemporary Refurbishment--April to Sept 2021

    Senior level interior design student quality boards. I can only presume the final product will reflect the concept art. ETA: Will someone tell them “contemporary” doesn’t mean “modern”? Someone involved in the decision making must really like Eames furniture and googie architecture.

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    I replied to the earlier comment, of which the second portion was implying the company didn’t think Rat was meant to be a headliner, by stating that DIS is treating Rat as though they believe it is a headliner. I said they are treating it as a headliner. I didn’t opine on whether they should or...

    Seems to be a close approximation. Looking forward to see it in a couple weeks. It was a tangent about if they were going to clone a ride from WDSP I may have chosen Crush. I genuinely didn’t know there was an actual internal debate about cloning Rat vs BatB. Looks like I learned something new...
