    All Things Streaming (VOD, OTT)

    I find the first article amusing only because the typical person that likes a sports package very often is the type of person that doesn’t take surveys (always exceptions to rules) so it is easy to guess who is really pushing a survey like this…

    News 'Encanto' and 'Indiana Jones'-themed experiences at Animal Kingdom

    Losing the boneyard imo is a huge loss. It is a great place to take younger kids when they can't do a ride that others want to ride (or when a couple adults from a group want to ride a ride with out kid(s), they can take the kids to the boneyard). My kids absolutely love the boneyard. We...

    News Disney plans to accelerate Parks investment to $60 billion over 10 years

    These kind of statements really confuse me sometimes. Over the last 10 years, it would be easy to argue that disney has invested more in their parks than Universal has. Disney is now promising another great stint and many have all these doubts. It also makes a lot of sense to many that...

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    this logic may seem to flow right to some, but it is not actually true. The repetitive getting in lines over and over is what can't be done by many. So spacing out the time an individual is in line will help them handle whatever that individual may be dealing with. Now I agree that there is...

    News Walt Disney World Adds Water Park Perk for 2025 Resort Guests

    I can only speak from personal experience, but my wife just texted me saying "i think we need to plan a trip in 2025 now because of this". Our plan was to skip this year and next to do Aulani in 2025. And just for reference, my wife doesn't bite on every thing that comes up... My point of...

    News New Polynesian Resort DVC villas building to open 2024

    Fairly certain that when DVC rooms are available and are sold for cash, disney isn't really making money off of them. If a room is available that means a dvc member used their points outside of the dvc rooms (like a disney cruise or through the timeshare system), so the money for that room is...

    Permits 2024

    These were in every science lab in our county's high schools AND freshman year each student had to use it as practice, almost like a fire drill. I figured every student in the country knew what these were, but maybe it was just something common in certain areas.

    Disney's Streaming Services: Disney+ (and Hulu, ESPN+, Star, & hotstar)

    I see this trend might be seeing a slight change with next generation but too early to tell. More and more school systems are giving kids iPods and similar items. The kids and schools are relying on these to do their work and I see a definite shift happening there that could see a difference as...

    Universal Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex) - Opens 2025

    ONe of the videos in this thread explains it, but basically it comes down to area available. They have more in florida available to create the waterfall

    News Reedy Creek Improvement District and the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District

    To piggyback on his, I completely agree (I also know quite a few paid and volunteer fire fighters/paramedics). I lived in an area that utilized volunteer services, and when a truck ran a red light and hit me as I crossed the road as a pedestrian at 50 mph (the truck, not me), it took the...

    Hollywood Strikes Are Over! - SAG-AFTRA agrees to a deal

    Not to argue the point, but I do know that rotten tomatoes always pointed out that Hollywood was known for taking most of December off. Here is an exert from one of their december articles talking about it briefly: "Few industries enjoy taking really, really long extended holiday vacations...

    Captain Marvel 2: "The Marvels" -- Nov 10, 2023 Theatrical Release

    I think it's worth noting, since you are using this article to compare, that boxofficepro even says just 4-5 days ago Five nights at Freddy's was looking at a 40-50 million dollar opening, which is below where The Marvels stands now (so comparing apples to apples, you would need to compare them...

    Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

    Certainly right to have your opinion, but I certainly would disagree. I very much enjoyed WDSP when we were there as much as California Adventure, and they have only improved WDSP since we were there.

    News PhotoPass Memory Maker price increase October 2023

    I would venture to guess most parents with young kids will not hesitate to still buy even after the increase. Plus with the ability to share/split the cost with others in your group (we always have 2 to 3 groups with us splitting the cost) it is still worth it for many. Disappointed the price...

    Ahsoka D+ Show (Spoiler Thread)

    I wife has never watched any of the animated series (she hates animated) but has really enjoyed this so far. Sure, I think she would enjoy it more had she watched the animated series, and I keep trying to get her to watch one, but she says she just doesn't like animated (let me also point out...

    Later in the same interview Jim Morris talked about the very fact that they include produer's salaries in the production budgets while other studios do not.

    News Disney plans to accelerate Parks investment to $60 billion over 10 years

    Pixar's president Jim Morris back in August when asked if Elemental will be profitable. "We have a lot of different revenue streams, but at the box office we’re looking at now, it should do better than break even theatrically. And then we have revenue from streaming, theme parks and consumer...

    News Disney plans to accelerate Parks investment to $60 billion over 10 years

    Just a reminder that disney includes producer's salaries in their production budgets which other studios do not. They already confirmed that Elemental has made a profit, but those that try to use these hard formulas to determine if a movie made a profit don't understand why. The two biggest...

    Elemental (Pixar - June 2023)

    We turned it on, really didn't expect my oldest to watch (he has only saw through 3 star wars movies and super mario brothers so far, all in the last 2 months), but about 1/4 of the way through he got entranced by it. He has now asked to watch it 2 more times in the last 3-4 days. I think it...

    Ahsoka D+ Show (Spoiler Thread)

    Speaking of....introduced my son for the first time last week to A New Hope (he has only seen Rebels for the most part so far, but did already love Darth Vader). Should I worry that he cheered like our team won the super bowl when Darth Vader defeated Obi-Wan. Now granted, I think he was...
