    MSEP coming to Orlando?

    I love the MSEP, and have made trips specifically to see it. However, I have long wondered why TDO / WDW can't bring us a DreamLights style MSEP to MK. The technology that exists for such a thing could blow away anything prior, but still keep "Baroque Hoedown" as the theme - which is exactly...

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

    The delusional self-importance of the people in the "revealing details" video is astounding. "Tiana's powerful story." "We want to honor her heritage." "Princess week!" blah blah blah. People....it's a cartoon princess and a cartoon frog. Get over yourselves. That being said, when is this...

    News The Hall of Presidents opens in August with President Joe Biden

    Alright!! Fun fact: I live 7 minutes from Biden's Delaware home. Been caught in a local "Joe jam" in traffic many times. "Funner" fact: I can't wait to see him up there! Even more fun fact: I was also super stoked to see the Trump, Obama, and Bush versions when they debuted! (Especially BHO and...

    News Disney will begin reducing physical distancing to 3ft over the next few weeks at Walt Disney World

    YEAH! keep it coming...we will be back to normal in no time at this rate. Holding out hope for the 50th to be a proper, normal celebration! I'm sure this is somewhere else, but can anyone report if they have resumed proper preshows for the likes of Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and...

    Tower of Terror effects status watch

    Agreed. I really wish it would get the TLC it deserves. And in that clip above, the lack of sound combined with the fact that they skip the pre-show takes it from "must do" to "must skip" right now for me.

    Rumor Disney may be about to expand the use of virtual queue boarding groups at Walt Disney World

    When they reopened, WDW said they would not be using FP+ so that they could use the dedicated FP queues to space people out. However, after two trips during the pandemic, I did not see a single dedicated FP queue area being used. This could EASILY fix the overflow problems on many attractions...

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    Perhaps I misspoke (mistyped?). All should be accommodated. I'm 100% in agreement. But when "politicos" use that term, it usually means any thing BUT inclusion. When used by such folks, if you're just an average run-of-the-mill-person, you will be made to feel bad for being so.

    News Disney updates its legendary Four Keys model to include a fifth key

    Because "inclusion" is quite frequently code for "exclusion - marginalizing a 'normal' person, and catering to the extreme vocal minority." Hopefully it means "INCLUSION" and nothing more.

    Perrey and Kingsley are going be getting some fresh royalty checks next year..

    I don't speak for others, but I can tell you why I can't stand "Paint The Night." It's the music, mostly. It's the same generic, four-to-the-floor-style pop music that has dominated the FM airwaves for the better part of the 2010s. There's nothing unique or "Disney" about it. It feels super...

    Perrey and Kingsley are going be getting some fresh royalty checks next year..

    Excellent thread title!! If MSEP is to return, it should do so bigger and badder than ever. Dream Lights style. Not the taped-together original ‘72 version with the 2001 soundtrack, pretending to be something it’s not. Either that, or bring back the ORIGINAL music with those old floats...much...

    Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

    I rode this for the first time this week. I was very confused by the lack of pre-show and how the movie screen got a big hole in it, so after we didn't watch it, I pulled out my phone and watched it on YouTube in the next room. It really doesn't make sense that they have guests stand in that...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Haha! See to me, the immersion is just as good, if not better, than the ride itself. It all builds to the ride, especially for the first timers. The reveal of getting off the rebel ship into the First Order's hangar is a real jaw-dropping moment. To casually walk through a cast member entrance...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    No preshow message from Rey, Poe, etc, no boarding the resistance ship and getting overtaken by the first order, no starfield behind the storm troopers. From the queue, we walked straight through the preshow, didn’t even get a chance to look at Poe’s X-Wing, turned the corner and walked into a...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Wow. So I had not read anything about the changes to the attraction with the whole covid situation...how awful. Completely pathetic. Seriously. The absolute lack of immersion is a disgrace. If they can’t find a way to include all of the elements, they shouldn’t run the attraction. The folks...

    News Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Standby Line and Boarding Groups at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    The entire queue was evacuated just now after the fire alarm went off. No word if it’s related to anything from the past few days. I’m being told it’s a queue building emergency, not a ride emergency

    WDW Resorts Reopening Thread

    I have been trying all morning to get something the week of the 50th. Nothing available yet. I bet they're waiting to see how the COVID situation plays out. You're probably right.

    News MuppetVision 3D closing for refurbishment later this month

    Glad to see Muppets getting some TLC, even if it's only minor. It's such a moving show...yeah, I wish they'd move it to PITTSBURGH! ;)
