    What yahoo is handling Disney's social media?

    Disney's attempts at social media interaction have always been cringeworthy. I still remember all of the times they tried and failed to create a viral video for the parks.

    Superdry suing Disney over eviction from Disney Springs

    This is standard practice for many (if not all) high-tier shopping centers, like the nearby Mall at Millenia. In the case of Superdry, they made a bad bet on expansion right as their cultural moment was coming to a close, and have been having difficulties for the better part of a decade.

    Superdry suing Disney over eviction from Disney Springs

    I am resurrecting this thread with news today out of Superdry's latest earnings call - the company confirmed it would be exiting US operations this year, meaning the space at Disney Springs will likely be opening up very soon...

    News Splash Mountain retheme to Princess and the Frog - Tiana's Bayou Adventure

    When it comes down to it, this bizarre assertion that Tiana is not popular enough to have an attraction is easily debunked by the fact that they are building one RIGHT NOW, as we speak. Nothing is done to the parks on a whim, there is a demand for a return on investment and a safe investment at...

    News Tiana's Bayou Adventure - latest details and construction progress

    Many folks, including former Imagineers, have chimed in and said the company is mandating the use of specific IPs in attractions. I do remember Tom Morris pointing out in a podcast that things like Mission Breakout were "top-down" decisions where executives told them to make it happen and WDI...

    Vineyard Vines coming to Disney Springs

    It is possible the store was pushed back to fit the needs of either Disney or Vineyard Vines, or supply chain issues could have been a problem as well.

    The Downtown Disney Thread

    Earl's will be a ground-up new building. I assume Tortilla Jo's will be demolished for a multi-tenant option.

    The Downtown Disney Thread

    The new Earl of Sandwich will be a two-level, 10,000 square-foot building. They're going to have more than enough space once the new location is up. Tortilla Jo's building certainly has a lot of potential, and the latest new additions give me hope they could so something good with the space...

    New Cirque du Soleil 'Drawn to Life' show in development to replace La Nouba

    Cirque du Soleil did go bankrupt during the pandemic. I don't know the specifics of their building (i'm assuming it's a ground lease situation) but Disney is known to have especially favorable lease agreements that more or less lock tenants into Disney's terms until their lease ends or Disney...

    News Tiana's Bayou Adventure - latest details and construction progress

    We're at least six months out from opening, likely longer. Why would the completed animatronics be situated within an active construction site?

    News Walt Disney World and other major Disney accounts stop posting on social media platform X

    It's so funny to see a certain sect of people here living in an alternative universe where Twitter is as vital and vibrant as it ever was. To the average person, it is noticeably slower, angrier, and less engaging. The age of the social media "town square" is over and people are splintering off...

    News Disney Jollywood Nights - Disney's Hollywood Studios Holiday Season ticketed event

    Eh, at WDW I think that's very optimistic. Devoted locals could and likely did dress up, but tourists are not packing finery (unless they somehow got a Victoria and Albert's reservation)

    The Jim Henson Hour* but yes, he made an appearance there first.

    The people who are there are certainly speaking their peace, and the word is not good.

    News Disney Jollywood Nights - Disney's Hollywood Studios Holiday Season ticketed event

    Disney is apparently claiming the gingerbread man mascot for the event is the "first original character created for WDW since Figment" lol, lmao

    News Disney Jollywood Nights - Disney's Hollywood Studios Holiday Season ticketed event

    It's so astonishing to me how they keep setting themselves up for failure like this. They should know an accurate number of people who will be coming, and should be staffing accordingly. Just insane.

    News Disney Jollywood Nights - Disney's Hollywood Studios Holiday Season ticketed event

    My first thought was an overabundance of blogger types inundating the place and messing with crowd flow. However, a friend of mine pointed out similarities to the mess that was Villains Unleashed. That begs the question of why they didn't learn from previous mistakes.

    The Downtown Disney Thread

    Stumbled across some interesting contracting documents filed recently for an Earl of Sandwich. Here's the project description: I'm very curious about where it could go if it's a new building entirely.
