    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    It's more the aesthetics. This isn't even a tunnel through anything. It's just a tunnel through open air. There are also more elegant solutions. If you look at Marc Davis's Thunder Mesa, the WDWRR would've gone "through the mountain".

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    They're really just gonna put a big tunnel for the train huh...I feel like the 1955 DLRR had better theming, lol

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

    I have also seen it; it's not the massively evil thing some people seem to think it is, but it is racist.

    Shouldn't Storybook Circus be its own land and not part of Fantasyland?

    I would've liked one akin to Paris's, but I think that for the theming of a small rural town (which is what SC is) it works well.

    I think Rizzo is too "Steve" for anyone else to do. Look at how Kermit's been...Much love to Matt Vogel but I mean

    Shouldn't Storybook Circus be its own land and not part of Fantasyland?

    Fair, fair. Part of me likes that DL has different rides than MK though.

    Shouldn't Storybook Circus be its own land and not part of Fantasyland?

    Worthwhile is relative. It's got a splash pad for kids, Dumbo, and a junior coaster. If they replaced the tents with a CarToon Spin type of ride it'd have something for everyone.

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

    As time goes on I just think...there's a steamboat going by. WDW's Frontierland was never really cohesive anyways. It's cool, it'll be fine. People will not for one second be drawn out of the experience. It'll be fun. The ride will probably not be that great but that's an indictment of what TWDC...

    Where in The World?

    You betcha, that's why I said "rooms"! It's great for crowd flow, keeps the line a little shorter.

    Where in The World?

    The facade space holds the stretching rooms, same as in DL :) In this case the ceiling rises into the space in the top of the facade, as opposed to the elevator going under the facade.

    Where in The World?

    That feature's just too noticeable. It's funny cause it actually is in other places in Liberty Square if memory serves correctly. On another note, I'm trying to figure out if my brain is just trained to see forced perspective or if the facade doesn't quite look the right size.

    I don't think anything's wrong with him either, but it's fair to say that being a white guy I'm not going to always get what's offensive to others.

    Jungle Cruise Re-Imagining

    I think it's just a matter of lack of creativity. They've done the same thing with other SEA-adjacent characters. Ya just see a lot of pictures of them plastered all over the place. Doesn't really replace theming and experiential stories.

    In fact I want the Remus Br'er tales to be given their due; they (ostensibly) are one of the few records of stories told by enslaved Africans in America. They're an important cultural artifact.

    Yeah the playground (really???) That's where I am though. Like it's obvious this was only ever really meant for DL.

    Also I do think there's always a possibility they just keep slow-rolling the WDW project until it goes away. They already let the Main Street Theater go bye-bye. The media has a short attention span. I imagine a year or so after DL's opens they'll say "It's been a year since Disneyland fixed...

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

    Oh it's all euro-centric. And in DL the New Orleans theming is obviously not in Fantasyland. That's why Tiana fits PERFECTLY there. PhilharMagic and IASW are both non-themed and Storybook Circus is themed to a small turn-of-the-century American town. I actually agree that Europe is the main...
