    News 'Beyond Big Thunder Mountain' Blue Sky concept revealed for Magic Kingdom

    Which has nothing at all to do with the park‘s Hollywood theme other than another IP movie, got it.

    The Route 66 in Cars is nowhere near Hollywood. Why’s that better suited for DHS, just because the road connected Chicago and LA?

    News 'Beyond Big Thunder Mountain' Blue Sky concept revealed for Magic Kingdom

    As I asked several days ago. Proven franchise, successful E-ticket, desert setting, can be modified to fit area.

    Neither was Splash Mtn, 1.0 or 2.0. Larger point, Frontierland is all about 1950s nostalgia. Think about when/where it originated.

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

    Disney imitating what was a massive success for Universal seems like the definition of game-changer but uh yeah sure they’re all game-changers, man

    in this essay I will redefine “game-changer” to be anything I want it to be regardless of chronology, context, and objective reality

    News 'Beyond Big Thunder Mountain' Blue Sky concept revealed for Magic Kingdom

    A Pixar riff on Knott’s log flume made too much sense. Wonder why a modified Carsland or at least the ride wasn’t considered for the Frontierland expansion. Because of the Lassiter associations? Seems like an obvious fit otherwise.

    WRE remixed with Toy Story woulda been a killer addition around 2010 or so.

    Maybe the most surprising decision at MK over the past two decades is the fact that Toy Story or Woody never got a permanent chunk of Frontierland. Is he also on a list now? Okay for future sequels but not park additions?

    News 'Beyond Big Thunder Mountain' Blue Sky concept revealed for Magic Kingdom

    I mean, talk about problematic. It’ll take the peanut gallery about five minutes to realize the Disney characters of color are being associated with Frontierland and Adventureland. Which makes Fantasyland a de facto white Eurocentric land. Modern Disney’s okay with that but not the connotations...

    News 'Beyond Big Thunder Mountain' Blue Sky concept revealed for Magic Kingdom

    That makes it sound even more like a narrative ploy than aiming for the fences. New stuff is welcome but this is the same company that’s specialized in chronically short and overhyped rides *with a few noticeable exceptions* over the past decade. Curious if anything reported would rival ROTR in...

    If the blog brigade was brought in for the song and dance, WDI must really be sErIoUs this time. Did Lou Mongello’s invite get lost in the mail?

    Soarin over Coco is definitely a (very modern-WDI) choice.

    Disney (and others) at the Box Office - Current State of Affairs

    Saw it was posted in other individual threads but for those keeping track generally: SW Mandalorian movie in May 2026 Toy Story 5 in June 2026 Live-action Moana in July 2026 The stacking of those three summer releases in 2026 seems curious. Is that to increase the odds that one or two hit big...

    Just have to get the algorithms to account for the portion of the customer base that won’t bother to visit because of perceived inconvenience, paying twice, etc.

    That’s also because marketing never allows them to level with guests. The Dwarves Mine Train got sold as the “new mountain” alongside Splash, Space, etc.

    News The Walt Disney Company Board of Directors Extends Robert A. Iger’s Contract as CEO Through 2026

    He says in the interview they started working on succession plans the day he got back. Ok, then the two year extension was just a cherry on top? He had no answer to when or how long a transition period would last. Probably because he’s not thinking about it since he has *two and a half* more...
