    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    I visited the attraction a few days ago, and I didn't have the heart to photograph or record, but the AAs have seen better days. Sound lab Figment looked like he broke his neck and was staring down at the floor as he bobbed up and down. Closed labs Figment has improved a bit and has gone back to...

    No love for Lilo?

    I can't speak for the rest of the US, but I've been told that the people of Hawaii are generally not fond of Lilo due to her behavior in the film. Lilo is a child processing trauma and acting out, which isn't unnatural, but was off-putting to some viewers of the film...which ultimately led to...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    The Muppets aren't going to take over the Imagination Pavilion. At this point, the Dreamfinder has a far better chance at returning when the overhaul happens. Disney isn't investing millions towards a film about Figment and the Muppets. Seth Rogen heard fans loud and clear on the day of the...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    When theme park creators come up with new tech, they like to implement it in more than one place. I wouldn't give up just yet. Imageworks, to my understanding, was moved downstairs because post-closure a significant portion of upstairs was not compliant with updated OSHA standards. With funding...

    Starcruiser Performer Shake Up

    I don't know how much the actors leaving were being paid, but I remember looking at two job postings for female performers for the Starcruiser and Disney was only going to be paying $19/hr. For what these performers have to do and for how many hours the experience runs, that's way too low...

    Rumor Stitch's Great Escape Replacement— Don’t Hold Your Breath

    WIR is past its relevancy and the sequel didn't get the box office numbers Disney wanted. They need a new concept that isn't based on a flavor of the week. Call me crazy, but I'd love to see an updated use of Circlevision technology, where the floor and the ceiling change, too. You could...

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

    If only the deal with MetLife hadn't fallen through because of employee healthcare plans. Not anyone that ultimately gets to decide whether a project gets funding or not. For now, plan B is keeping it closed. 9. Turnover/changes in leadership and staff 10. Wait, how much is this costing? 11...

    News Morocco Pavilion redevelopment

    Imagineering didn't design Swolphin and it's unlikely that they were ever asked how they felt about how it would affect sightlines. Eisner was excited to hire a special designer outside of the company, while Disney had a separate project team figuring out how to build a bunch of new hotels on...

    Rumor Spaceship Earth Redo Shelved Indefinitely

    I go fairly regularly and I always hear it clunking, so much so that it doesn't worry me as much anymore - when I hear a much louder clunk, my husband and I will look at each other like :oops:

    When would Disney submit something like that as a pre-cursor to Jingle Cruise?

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    I don't know for certain, but I've seen these walls come down intermittently depending on what festival is going on for the past few seems like they're only down if the festival booth back there is used. I understand not wanting to confuse guests with an unused building, but then...

    Journey of Water featuring Moana coming to Epcot

    I'm going to have to assume that you have no idea what sorts of materials theme parks use to build things like this...the construction is significantly more complicated an still requires things such as steel structures. Plumbing. Artistically shaping concrete, painting it to last outdoors in the...

    Journey of Water featuring Moana coming to Epcot

    I wish things were progressing faster myself, but something that I don't see get mentioned enough on these boards is the fact that prices on materials have skyrocketed higher since they were pre-COVID (let alone their availability.) There's a reason why so many homes are under construction now...

    EPCOT Forever to return?

    Based simply off of how expensive the barges were, I wouldn't expect them to disappear.

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    I love Billy Barty's voice, but I think they're going to want to find an actor that's alive that can do press and media for a while to promote the film and any franchising that will come from it. Technology only gets better as time progresses, and I'm sure Disney has some ideas for what they'd...

    News Disney’s DuckTales World Showcase Adventure Announced for Play Disney Parks Mobile App at Epcot

    I’m not saying it’s impossible that some higher-ups wanted similar types to what Gravity Falls had (all sorts of precedents are pushed in the writing room from the people writing their checks), but IMHO that’s not inherently a bad thing. And again, I’ll take more Mabels and Webbys over the...
