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

    I heard they were going to be replaced by floating beignets!

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    Boy, do I feel this in every part of my soul. I'm also mid-30s and my family also went to WDW every year at least once a year. So I too grew up with those classic 90s Disney movies with the iconic songs, but also with Disney parks that FELT Disney without cramming Disney products down your...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    You know, I keep thinking what would have happened if Disney had partnered with Cirque du Soleil for this show...or at least some of the people that have helped produce Cirque shows. I'm not talking acrobatics or live performers, of course. This would obviously be a much different show from what...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I feel like my husband and I were the only ones who really enjoyed the PatF cover. It was probably our favorite part of the show, especially my husband's as he kept talking about it afterward. And I don't even like PatF. I did feel it stretched on WAY too long and really didn't fit in Epcot at...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I actually agree with you. I like the twinkling aspects. But overall it's oversaturated and busy. I'm hoping it's better in person. I will say I'm glad they didn't go with projections. I'm likely in the minority but I feel like Disney does not do projections well at all. I thought I just hated...

    News New lobby layouts coming to Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort

    I wish they would redo the layout of Saratoga's quick service and especially their shop. Maybe the layout is deceiving, but it felt way smaller than most of the other deluxe resorts. Even moderates and values have larger shops than Saratoga. Honestly it makes sense to have less check-in desks...

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

    I wouldn't call it prominent on my list... just happened to be the first one that came to mind. And even though Pecos Bill does have a restaurant dedicated to his name already in Frontierland, I'd be surprised if many young people today have seen the cartoon or know anything about his story...

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

    My thought is, instead of slapping a different skin on Splash Mountain with little regard to surrounding theming, make the redesign fit the surrounding theming (what a novel idea!). I do wish they would do as you said - place PatF somewhere else (the old SWSA spot perhaps). Retheme SM into...

    Creations Shop opening this summer

    I think the general aesthetic of MG worked (at least for a while) because it fit in with the rest of the spine. As gaudy as it all was (different times and all that). The difference now is that Figment has only grown in popularity since MG was first created. He has proven to have staying power...

    New Horizons would have been a great name! Or maybe Universe of Synergy.

    Creations Shop opening this summer

    Certainly more clever than Creations Shop.

    Creations Shop opening this summer

    That doesn't matter. I have a BA in graphic design and worked in the field for years. Didn't stop those that hired me to do a job and who had zero design experience from hovering over my shoulder telling me where to place things, what font to use, what colors to use. Some people think they can...

    Creations Shop opening this summer

    At least the new Universal store has a slight hint of uniqueness to it. To me it looks like something in a modern theme park. Not just a bland store you could find anywhere else in the country. Yeah I loved the reference to "the rich variety of items"...you mean like the ones we can find in...

    Rumor The EPCOT Hotel

    For a resort that is blessed with lots of space and acreage, they sure seem fixated all of a sudden on putting things on top of each other. Riviera being plopped pretty much on top of Caribbean Beach. An Epcot hotel being plopped at the entrance or inside the park. I know this supposed Epcot...

    News Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2021

    Shopdisney has two MagicBands that weren't even at the park when we were there. But that's it. That's a good idea about FB pages though! I never think about that.

    News Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2021

    That's all pretty much what I figured too. It was definitely a major bummer. This was the first time my husband had experienced FotA and he was really wanting the baseball cap. I just never dreamed there would be hardly anything left when we went. Of course some of the items I can find on...

    News Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2021

    Does anyone know why pretty much all the merch was sold out several weeks before the festival is over? We went the 2nd week of February, and the only merch was a very small section in World Showplace. There were a couple of shirts, phone cases, magnets, key chains, and the art palette plate. And...

    Keister Coaster waterslide at Disney's BoardWalk Inn closing for refurbishment in October

    Honestly I can't tell if you're being facetious or not. But I do not see that throwing some cartoon graphics on a pool slide is going to make any more guests cough up the kind of cash required for that resort. If people truly aren't staying at deluxe resorts the problem isn't lack of cartoons...

    Keister Coaster waterslide at Disney's BoardWalk Inn closing for refurbishment in October

    Welp, chalk another one up for a mediocre redesign by Disney. I agree it should have been something cool and 3D and there were a ton of options. But my biggest issue is the use of the modern Mickey and friends. Just...why? It doesn't fit with anything else at the resort. It just feels clunky and...

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    I didn't know Harmonius: The Musical was already on Disney+! I'm already not getting a good first impression of this show. Any guesses on how long this monstrosity will be around before Disney decides to do something different? I'm guessing it will long overstay its welcome since they've dumped...
