    That would be an absolute disaster. I can't imagine they'd think that was a good idea.

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    Right, but so are consumers -- Disney could make changes to fix things and still have a 5-10 year period before it shifts back around. If people had a bad experience, don't want to go back, and tell others not to go, it's not easy to get them back and word of mouth can spread quickly. They might...

    Expedition Everest effects status watch

    It's a significant loss for the attraction -- obviously not quite at the level of the yeti, but it had a major effect on the overall ride experience.

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    By the way, the fact that he was given a 3 year extension doesn't really mean anything beyond believing he's the best option at this exact moment. They could still show him the door in two months if they wanted. I'm not suggesting that's going to happen, nor do I think it will, but it's not...

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    I don't understand how they're connected, at least in the way you're insinuating. Indications are that Chapek fired Rice because he thought he was a potential threat either as a replacement for him or for his personal choice as successor. The board viewed Chapek as the best option right now...

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    Disney is also propped up by being the American family thing to do. Everyone is supposed to take their kids to Disney World (not that everyone actually does, obviously). But that's built upon decades of goodwill -- and a healthy IP library, of course -- that is potentially in danger with the...

    Bob Iger Stepping Down, Bob Chapek New CEO

    Yes, Peter Rice is so far left that he's close to Rupert Murdoch. I don't think you understand what far left is. Most of what you've mentioned is closer to being a centrist or just moderately left than anything remotely near the far left. Regardless, Rice was fired because Chapek felt...

    Reservation expansion

    If it limited hopping to only one park a day, that would be a restriction. If they decided to cap the number of hops per day regardless of park capacity, or force you to make a selection beforehand and not day of, that would be a restriction -- and that's really the only reason it would even...

    Reservation expansion

    The last couple of times I went we were hopping well before 2 PM on at least 3 days. We went for a week both trips, which would generally mean one full day in each park and then the other 3 days were spent hopping, except that DHS is only a half-day park so we were usually hopping from there by...

    The Jurassic series hit its peak in 1993. Both of the original sequels and all three Jurassic World films are varying stages of terrible.

    Reservation expansion

    What if someone wanted to then hop to a third park? Would that not be allowed with a two parks per day maximum? The 2 PM hopping limit is already one of the major reasons I don't have any current plans to go back -- anything that potentially restricts it further is just throwing gas on a fire.

    WDW Answer to Hagrid's/VelociCoaster

    Atlanta's city limits are pretty small (and potentially shrinking). Metro area is the much better indicator (and growing pretty rapidly for Atlanta), although even it can sometimes have arbitrary lines -- Greensboro and Winston-Salem in North Carolina were split into two separate metro areas...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    A VQ only park could work if it was designed that way from the ground up, but I have a hard time imagining how it would be economically feasible. It would require so much additional dining, shopping, etc. capacity that operating costs would skyrocket compared to a normal park (would probably...

    It's down to 3, I think -- pretty sure the San Diego Zoo no longer has them.

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    They built it to be a VQ only park for all attractions, but that apparently didn't work. You have to have massive amounts of space and a tremendous number of other activities to keep people busy when no one is ever waiting in any lines.

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I don't think that's really a legitimate concern anymore. The parks are busy all the time. Building new attractions doesn't create a massive influx of new guests -- Galaxy's Edge didn't overwhelm DHS and Guardians hasn't created any issues whatsoever at EPCOT (helped by the fact Guardians is a...

    WDW Answer to Hagrid's/VelociCoaster

    I used to wonder why the Atlanta Zoo had giant pandas, considering it's a relatively small zoo and there are much larger/nicer zoos in the US that don't have them. But I'm pretty sure having giant pandas is simply about paying money to China and most zoos aren't willing to pony up. China...

    Rumor Higher Speed Rail from MCO to Disney World

    This would have never worked as a DME replacement without Disney investing money in additional transfers, which I doubt they would have done. Even if they did, though, it would have likely been the least appealing option for the majority of guests. But having a station would still provide a...

    Disney Genie, Genie+ officially introduced along with confirmed details of how it will work

    I don't know -- saying it's the death of the parks would be a bit melodramatic, but it's clearly a gigantic disaster for Disney that they're attempting to fix. I don't think there's any argument that the average guest prefers FP+ to Genie+ (and I wasn't a big fan of FP+), based on guest...

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind SPOILER Thread

    Right, that's what I mean -- that it's supposed to be a Marvel/Guardians ride and they feel mostly superfluous to the experience. It could have been a simple space themed ride (remove Eson etc. from the projections/screens and just make it planets, nebulas, etc.) and probably been even better...
