    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    Never forget: The Desecration of the 1982 EPCOT spine (CommuniCore central plaza design) is Disney’s repudiation of the genius of Bernini

    Absolutely, Cinderella found her way into the castle, for the benefit of her and her descendants thereafter. But she would still be just a consort, not regnant, so original point still stands. Point being: romanticization of castles could be seen by some as an attempt to perpetuate rigidly...

    Feudalism existed until 2008 in Europe. More to the point, a little boy or girl born today in the UK will never have a chance to rise to become their nation's Head of State. Imagine that! Imagine telling a precocious, intelligent, curious little boy or girl that they can do anything they want...

    The slippery about-face the studios pulled on that one was abhorrent and yes, inexcusable.

    TWDC missed an opportunity to collaborate with Mr. Julius Lester, who retold the original folk stories in a new and modern voice in the 1980s but sadly passed away a couple years ago. In his retelling, Lester provided additional context to the folk stories and placed them firmly into an oral...

    I was called unhinged, because I tried to point out that actions like this could be emboldening some truly unhinged people feeling as though their very identities are under attack. I think the user who made that statement somehow thought I was among them for merely pointing this out. As if...

    They did make a movie/reboot about Splash Mountain. It starred Jim Varney. And yes I'm being facetious.

    Facebook is not an anonymous platform. If someone were to react with an angry face... well... you know what that would mean about them as a person.

    If you're looking for maturity on WDW message boards, I don't think you'll find very much of it. Just like social media at large. This is just a microcosm, social media with a laser focus. But yes. I think most people of good will see the ruse, charade, and hypocrisy that's evident in posts...

    I would hope around 5%! :D I will tell you, in public elementary schools, and not too long along, we were taught the full name, we were taught the shameful part of our history, but also the good part. Do you use your middle name? Do you have a middle name? You probably don't use your...

    My birth certificate may not have the same words on it if I request a new copy next year. Do you want to know why? My state may change its very name. It's been in the news recently, I'm sure you've seen a story. When the name of the place you were born decides to change its name, because its...

    You've conflated quotes there - I said nothing about statues. What I said was, identities were at stake here. This isn't about tearing down statues. This isn't about tearing down animatronic bears and rabbits. This isn't about tearing down offensive dialect reminiscent of the worst...

    I have a feeling that the Cultural Erasure being perpetrated now on a level nearly unprecedented in US history will foment a Counter-Erasure that will end up plunging society into ever deeper discord. Newton's Third Law. To erase, deny, or imply that aspects of American culture people can...

    This. Politics is perception. The absolute only way for any reversal of this, is to somehow make an argument that TPATF is more egregious of a film than SOTS, more culturally insensitive (perhaps by finding some scene or another and taking it out of context, blasting it across Twitter), and...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Has it ever been officially acknowledged that the original SSE/Communicore spine design was directly influenced by Bernini's design of the St. Peter's Basilica/Square complex at the Vatican? Or is that just taken for granted?
