    Rose parade

    Disney used to be a staple, but again this year will be absent. Is this just the result of budget cuts again? Or is there nothing new to promote, so they are just sitting it out? I know it has been more of a disneyland thing.. but wouldnt you think disneyworlds 50th would have prompted one.

    Halloween Costumes

    I know some of you are probably super talented, maybe cosplayers. Anyone working on a halloween costume that is Disney related? I thought it might be cool to get the halloween talking started, and show off your hard work. If this needs to be moved I apologize.

    Is remy replacing Figment?

    Looking over the festival merchandise for wine and dine, and the soon to be RAT ride opening soon, I am starting to get worried. Heck beauty and the beast has more merch than figment. Hear me out. They have a character with a brand new ride that they are trying to push. Remy is honestly...

    What if.... Gm is on its way out.....

    No inside info, just at thought. What if Gm (who we think contract ends next year) is leaving. They signed their last agreement 2012 for 10 years. Could that explain siemens and space ship earth. Maybe we are getting another official car company for Disney. Gm doesnt just support test track they...

    Could Jungle cruise be a harbinger for minor refurbs going forward?

    I think the way they are handling jungle cruise (regardless of opinions on the changes), is brilliant. Instead of closing the ride keep the ride going as you change small bits. Of course jungle cruise has a live skipper so they can change the script on the fly and there is enough going on they...

    What wouldnt be built today?

    Thought with the parks closed I would do one of these what ifs. So what has been built by Disney that would never be built today. Im excluding non ip vs ip discussion because we know that would tangent. But I was just thinking about space ship earth. I cannot imagine them ever building...

    What if? We had another delayed opening like haunted mansion.

    So some back history on the haunted mansion. In 1961 handbills were handed out announcing the opening of the ride in 1963. The mansion was completed (outside façade) in 1963. The fence was up and there was a sign saying the ride was coming. In 1965 it was even previewed on wonderful world of...

    Is Disney really that expensive?

Theming is static mannequins if there is theming on a ride, the roller coasters are short. Its like...

    Rose parade, what happened to Disney?

    Disney used to be a big supporter of the parade. Walt, mickey, kermit (not sure if this was before or after Disney), all were grand marshals. They had floats even recently. And its down the street. Did they have an issue with the people in charge, feel it cost too much, just wasnt worth it. I...

    Ralph Breaks the internet... thoughts.. (spoilers may be inside)

    So I saw it last night and was honestly disappointed. I loved the first one!! Between it and Wall-e they are my two favorite Disney/Pixar movies. I feel the trailer pretty much told the story, the relationship between vanelope and ralph (outside of the first part of the movie), wasn't as...

    What if? Disney still used tickets

    Until around 1982 WDW still used tickets for every ride (year before my first time). I wonder how the parks might be different if they still used this strategy. Personally I feel it is more upscale and less state fair the way it is, and don't want to see it return to tickets, but would we get...
