    Pirates of the Caribbean vs Splash Mountain

    Oh agreed, sorry. Splash at WDW is better than Splash at DL. I just meant that Splash at DL is still the best ride at DLR, better than either Pirates or Indie, or HM, RSR, etc.

    Pirates of the Caribbean vs Splash Mountain

    As is the case with most polls. The individuals who take the time to comment are mostly the ones who feel their opinion isn't represented by the poll's results.

    Pirates of the Caribbean vs Splash Mountain

    MK Splash Mountain is above DL Pirates of the Carribean. I'd argue Splash is the best ride at DL too.

    No big upcoming attractions after TRON?

    Jurassic Park does NOT own a patent on dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were real animals and it's ridiculous to suggest a corporation like Comcast could 'own them' to the point where we can't even acknowledge or celebrate them unless it's under Universal's oversight. Especially since Jurassic World is such...

    What will Disney announce for Disney World at the 2022 D23 expo?

    I rode VelociCoaster and Steel Vengeance at CP both for the first time about a month apart in 2021. I thought VelociCoaster was better. As did 2/3 of the people with me. For what it's worth.

    What will Disney announce for Disney World at the 2022 D23 expo?

    Thank you. Anyone who says Hulk is fooling themselves. It's okay to be a coaster person but understand you're being biased and weighing coasters as a ride system with unfair weight compared to other attractions. Hulk is fun but that's about where it stops, with two better launch coasters in...

    What will Disney announce for Disney World at the 2022 D23 expo?

    Lol 💀 Well first of all, wide margin is excessive. I've ridden hagrid's in the last two weeks twice and it's not even the best ride at Islands of Adventure by a 'wide margin.' And I definitely think IoA is the best park in Orlando albeit again not by a 'wide margin,' that's midly emotionally...

    Rank the Disney/Universal Orlando parks

    I'm sorry but can someone here explain to me why the answer would be Magic Kingdom? Just feels like bias to me. Islands of Adventure is just too stacked with E tickets. Hogsmeade is also better themed than any area of the MK. So I really see no way around giving IoA the crown. Animal Kingdom...

    Is Epcot's theme/mission changing?

    Original EPCOT fans: what would you have Disney do? I'm sorry but this wasn't the case of Disney building the perfect theme park and poor management tearing it apart to its own detriment. This was a case of Disney building a park with x y characteristics, to find out guests didn't like x y...

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    And what a shame that is. With the rights to Looney Tunes, Universal could finally have its own mascot, in the form of Bugs Bunny to Disney's Mickey Mouse. And with DC, Universal could not only create some stellar attractions and themed lands with potentially an even bigger draw than Potter, but...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    ??? Because both can be true? Something can be criticized but still have merit. Personally I think the changes to DHS are for the best, but some who are attached to the original concept have voices their objections. I'm not really sure what your point is though? Is it that you think Frozen does...

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    In my humble opinion, Marvel is just not a good option. You can't even mention any of Marvel's most popular characters. That really defeats the purpose of a Marvel land, imo. Disney has plenty of other IPs, I'm sure they'll find something else to milk dry.

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    Doctor Strange, the Eternals, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Shang Chi, basically characters that have weak ties to the ones used in IoA. But none of Marvel's best characters, like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, etc can be used. Just really really deep cuts that Universal would have...

    Beastly Kingdom vs Pandora

    I mean, Beastly Kingdom is blue sky concept art from before DAK was even built. We don't know what that looks like, and most people who built it up in their heads to be whatever they want it to be. Pandora on the other hand is a realized place, subject to budget cuts, etc. So it's not a fair...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    1. There have been objections to Toy Story & Star Wars in DHS 2. DHS is in an identity crisis right now, and currently it's just viewed as a "ride the movies park," so Star Wars and Toy Story fit just fine, as would Frozen. 3. EPCOT has a strong identity, like it or leave it, and so a thematic...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    And to this day it still has a vastly more consistent theme than DCA. Another thing to note is that while EPCOT is beloved by Disney fans, DCA was never liked (at least by most). Therefore the reaction to something in EPCOT is going to always be much stronger than whatever is added to DCA...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    I think that's just because most people have lost hope for DCA, if they ever had it in the first place. Nevermind the problems with a California theme in the first place, DCA is so thematically incoherent that, at this point, who cares if they add another random attraction? Clearly there is no...

    Frozen in Norway: Am I the only one who doesn't mind?

    I think Frozen could have fit in Norway. If the ride focused on the IP's roots to Norse mythology/folklore, and/or Scandinavia. That's not to say I think it'd be the best fit, or even a really good fit for the pavilion, but that I think it would be thematically appropriate. The fact that...

    Pandora World of Avatar Phase Two

    I think that expanding NRJ would be the best option, but I doubt that Disney would ever do it as there's really no incentive. That said, I firmly believe that if NRJ was spending its budget on one, extremely complex AA -- then it shouldn't have been a Na'Vi, it should have been an animal. The...

    July Reservations at the MK?

    Thanks a lot both of you for your responses :) so I've only checked the online calender. How does one just go ahead and try to book the dates? Should I buy the tickets first, and just refund them if we can't get a date? Thanks again 👍
