    Worst mistake in Epcot history

    Horizons. The other 2 could be undone relatively easily if they ever wanted to.

    The average first-timer's research for a visit?

    I didn't research IoA when I was there a couple years ago to see the Potter stuff for the first time since I had already been there years ago. Unlike those people, I was aware Diagon Alley existed, but my wife and I practically stumbled upon the entrance itself purely by accident. Also, unlike...

    Rumor Wreck-It-Ralph Attraction Likely to Replace Stitch’s Great Escape

    Yep. That is what I have read here too. To be clear, I don't necessarily want Cars. Just surprised this group hasn't done it. Something needs to be done with Speedway. The only value it really has is providing a little green space in Tomorrowland but that could easily be accomplished throughout...

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    Yep, thats why it feels so hopeless.

    Disney Hollywood Studios getting renamed/rethemed?

    It is a park featuring IPs from the various studios owned by Disney. Seems pretty apt to me. The only other acceptable alternative name to me was Disney Hollywood Adventure but the cost of implementing a name change like that (signs, websites, brochures, marketing, re-recording material, etc)...

    Construction between Contemporary and TTC

    With this leadership, can we even assume that the campground is safe? Its a huge piece of real estate. It could easily fit a 5th gate if they ever actually wanted one and/or multiple resorts.

    Construction between Contemporary and TTC

    Need to add more deluxe rooms for all those people that are going to want to take advantage of all the deluxe resort exclusive perks that are now a thing.

    Rumor Wreck-It-Ralph Attraction Likely to Replace Stitch’s Great Escape

    A WIR attraction would have fit well where Buzz is. A blaster ride is ideal for a video game themed IP. But I can understand how WIR simulator or VR attraction also lends itself to an area with fairly limited space. I hope this one happens.

    Rumor Wreck-It-Ralph Attraction Likely to Replace Stitch’s Great Escape

    The fact they haven't just slapped a uber cheap Cars overlay onto the Speedway is borderline amazing given current management. I mean all they have to do is replace the ride vehicles and add some characters on the signs.

    Rumor Wreck-It-Ralph Attraction Likely to Replace Stitch’s Great Escape

    It's a better fit than Monsters Inc. at least. I don't have a problem with Tomorrowland becoming more sci-fi and less about the literal future or strictly outer space. Provides for a lot more flexibility and would seemingly be more sustainable.

    And charges to use their Wi-Fi which will evolve into a tiered price system, demand pricing, and/or a Disney version of throttling.

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    Virtual queue in and of itself is not a bad concept in some ways but the latter portion of your point definitely makes it seem almost useless.

    You mentioned timeshare earlier. You thinking there will be windows when standby is just not offered and possibly vice versa or am I off the mark?

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    The crazy thing is, I think they could successfully monetize FP. A cheap, reasonable fee is still money in their pockets. Heck, even small annual increases would go unnoticed by most for several years but they wont be able to resist the temptation to gouge us right away.

    And it also cost over $100 just for the opportunity to...spend more money.

    So you don't think WDW gets the exact Paris model?

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    This absurdity is so on brand for current management. I got some flack in another thread about my gripe with the Deluxe Resort access perk but if this comes to WDW, it is even more proof that Disney does not want middle class income families to be regular park guests anymore. I know they have...

    Construction between Contemporary and TTC

    Every land in Magic Kingdom has (purposeful or not) an associated deluxe resort in the area except for Fantasyland. If a new resort is being considered, assuming the trend holds, my personal preference would be an Alpine or Bavarian theme (Snow White, Pinocchio, Tangled). But since this 21st...
