    Marvel's The Eternals

    After seeing it I totally understand. I really enjoyed it, however, it was at least 30 minutes too long and certainly not to everyone's tastes. My son and friend both liked it too. I would place it in the middle of the pack of Marvel films (right where you say it fell with audiences). In...

    Marvel's The Eternals

    Look, a family outing for a film is at least 70 or 80 bucks for me. Do critic reviews help me decide which films to support? They absolutely do, and if I am going to 1 film a month I am going to read reviews first. Period. I may still go to the Eternals, but prior to the RT stuff it was on...

    Fantasmic Reopening Watch

    They both have their highs and lows. I have seen them within a few months of each other and like them both. I do like the dragon effect at WDW but really like the full sized ships at DL. Both among my top things to do whenever I visit either one. I probably won't visit until the show is...

    Any Bets on What Comes After Galaxy's Edge?

    Not trolling I promise. I have a co-worker whose brother works at a company that manufactures décor for Disney parks. They have done extensive work over the years and he has always known about expansion projects long before they are announced, including Galaxy's Edge. He has maintained for...

    Dwayne Johnson in Jungle Cruise Film?

    Just saw it! A fun ride. It was like The Mummy meets Romancing The Stone with a little Pirates of the Caribbean thrown in. I really enjoyed it! The action scene direction was terrible and distracting but Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson had incredible fun chemistry together and made up for it...

    News Disney mask policy at Walt Disney World theme parks

    As the person who manages COVID for my company, this news gives me chills but is completely understandable. I won't go back to Disney (Annual or semi-annual trips for the past 25 years) until all of this is in the rear view mirror. I don't want to vacation in a mask and I don't want to pay...

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    You know, I really like all of the changes. It freshened up the ride without taking away the humor. Did I like Trader Sam? Sure. Will I miss him terribly? Nope. It still felt like the jungle cruise and solved some of the issues that turned people off. Extremely well done at DL. Will the...

    Star Trek land at Universal?

    Star Trek has been expanding rapidly again. New shows, including a popular animated one. I am just not sure about the "timeless" quality of the thing though. Except for the OS, the characters seem to fade from memory quickly. And I am saying that as a huge Star Trek fan. I don't think it...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    It feels like this is an example where Disney is putting the money in the appropriate place. Focus on the Show and not spending money on stuff that doesn't matter. Maybe we are all over sensitive because we are suffering from Taco Fever or Big A... Buildings that disrupt the show? It this...

    Raya and the Last Dragon

    This was a great movie! The most fun at a new flick that I had all year! And the short...........Incredible. I'm really sad that there were only about 10 people in the theater. I think Disney flubbed the marketing too. My sons wanted to see it but I had really heard very little abotu it...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - attraction discussion only

    I feel like there is a lot of pressure to get the retheme right. Splash is continually among the highest rated attractions in the parks, AND this is a pretty high profile project, no matter what the motivations are. If Disney botches it, there will be a STUNNING amount of bad publicity. If...

    Is DisneyParks now using COVID to make changes they always wanted to do and use COVID to justify them?

    I am just fascinated by this discussion. I have never used ME in all of my trips because I stay offsite mostly, and have rented a car even when we have stayed on property. The resort parking fees had me planning a trip this fall to stay on property BUT use ME. I cancelled the trip because of...

    All things Knotts Berry Farm

    My son's and I are planning on the Haunt happening. Fingers crossed. My oldest wants to fly from the midwest and has been planning a fall vacation. Come ON Cedar Fair!

    Pin Trading Suspended at Disney?

    My wife, who cannot physically do many attractions, spends her time pin-trading while we are whooshing down splash mountain. This change makes perfect sense but it's another reason for us not to go back until this is all over. Sigh.

    Would you visit Walt Disney World with these health-based operational restrictions in place?

    I cannot imagine going back to Disney until all of this has passed and I can get the experience that I love. That means no masks. I think it may be years before that's back and I can wait. We have a tentative family trip planned for October 2021 and we are fairly certain that we will NOT be...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    My company is planning on the recovery taking until October and (honestly) that is wishful thinking. Cash flow projections, expense control, salary reductions, benefits reduced. And we are all happy to still be working. It's a restaurant company and we are all pitching in and doing our best...

    News Layoffs, permanent closures, and more at WDW third-party establishments

    I am a long time stockholder and customer and I’m worried. They are fissuring cash at an unheard of rate. Nobody knows where this will end. Disney may look very different in 2021. Unlikely to fail? Sure. Too big to fail......nope. 3/4 of their revenue streams are dark. They never...

    Disney Stock

    Disney is vulnerable. I’m a fan, a stockholder, and consumer. The company of today will be forced to fundamentally change. People argued that the parks wouldn’t close. They did. I agree with multiple parts of this thread. They will have to sell assets. They are vulnerable to a takeover...
