    Florida Legislators Want To Remove The Reedy Creek Improvement District

    RCID, the social media law banning takedowns or people seeking/holding office, multiple special tax districts, etc... Disney, specifically, had a rule enacted that exempted "companies owning or operating a theme park in the state of Florida" from many rules and laws. Its really a bit crazy...

    Florida Legislators Want To Remove The Reedy Creek Improvement District

    Then they also shouldnt get favors, correct? When your penalty is erasing the loopholes that you bought, then is it really a penalty? Its not like they are being put at a disadvantage or having a basic liberty taken away, they are losing a corporate welfare grant that they had no business...

    Florida Legislators Want To Remove The Reedy Creek Improvement District

    The advantage being taken away was also a benefit that was special to just that company. The only reason they have RCID and the Twitter carve out is because they paid off a lot of politicians to get them.

    Florida Legislators Want To Remove The Reedy Creek Improvement District

    Being political is fine and legal, but that doesnt exist in a vacuum and actions have consequences. Not to praise Iger, but he had a way of just letting Disney be Disney, but it feels like Chapek has a complete inability to read a room. Their best play was when they just said they werent...

    Florida Legislators Want To Remove The Reedy Creek Improvement District

    What a weird comment...Americans, overwhelmingly, dont support corporations buying influence in governments and Disney and Twitter were fine as neutral entities. The moment either threw in on a political stance is when it opened itself for consequences from the government elected by the...

    News Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser coming to Walt Disney World 2021

    It looks...awful...Honestly, if that commercial is the "best" marketing look into the thing, then I would cancel too. It just looks like generic space ship. The "pop star" feels so out of place, the lightsaber training looks like it was made for three year olds and the bridge looks like...

    News Monorail Orange refurbishment completed

    Why would you open a that beam for less than half the hotels in the circuit? Until the Poly opens and Contemporary is finished, we likely wont see Epcot beam running again. The number of guest rooms in the MK area just dont support it. On topic, I hope these refurbs include a complete tear...

    The Wave closing for refurbishment this summer at Disney's Contemporary Resort

    Its literally fantastic, because its an escape from IP...It looks like a nice restaurant. I love the characters, but we also need a break from them, as well.

    Spaceship in Spaceship Earth

    This thread is younger than my twins by less than three months...They just finished their drivers education courses. It actually outlasted my first marriage by five years.

    Chiquita no longer sponsoring Living with the Land?

    And the bulldozed the best restrooms in the whole place with Innoventions West...Right by the free Coke products...They looked straight out of the 80s and were almost always vacant.

    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    Also, I would guess they are putting way more effort and current funds into attractions that have a possibility of being used in the next year. Even with lowering COVID rates and increases in vaccinations, Im guessing it will be a solid year before we get away from social distance rules in the...

    Monorail Red Updated

    I literally said diesel powered steam in diesel powers the steam.

    Monorail Red Updated

    Not really a comparison... The trains on the railroad were completely stripped down to the frames and rebuilt as diesel powered steam trains. They have also been sent away, in recent years, for a complete tear down and rebuild, with new tanks, wheels, engines, everything...right down to the...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    Its not a "breather" when they cancel announced projects...SE needs work, a lot of work, and they just shelved it indefinitely. The central Spine, love it or hate it, got a major focal point canceled. They also are eliminating Magical Express, shelved almost all live entertainment, eliminated...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    I just get the feeling that WDW is making the same mis-steps they made in 2001-2010...During a time when they could use their period of lower attendance, they decide to grip down harder on prices and cut back on what few services remain. When everything is open, what makes them think I would...

    Thants not dust and partially disassembled past sets...thats Pixie dust and echoes of the past future.

    News Disney's Magical Express to end after 2021

    We already pay for it...Whether they line item it out on your bill or not, this was never a "free" service. What you are getting now is a straight up "we keep the money, you get less service."
