    News Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to permanently close this fall

    The last 15-20 minutes of her video basically summarize a lot of the points constantly mentioned here about Disney removing included perks and putting things behind an additional cost. Her thought is the Galactic Starcruiser is just the first public rejection against the aggressive pricing and...

    Really, really interested to see how the Polynesian's amenities handle the influx of guests. That Monorail station is going to be busy.

    Disney, VR/AR, and Apple's WWDC 2023

    Those quickly dismissing this are forgetting how everyone laughed at the iPad or other somewhat recent technical achievements that went on to become huge once they found their footing.

    Disney’s Q1 FY24 Earnings Results Webcast

    Exactly. Never said it was groundbreaking. But, partnering with someone who already does it (and does it pretty well) makes a lot more sense than building out something new from scratch. Fortnite's new games, like LEGO, prove that Disney could build out full games with EPIC within Fortnite. It's...

    News Disney partners with Epic Games to launch gaming and entertainment universe tied to Fortnite

    This is a smart move. The old "metaverse" plan under Chapek never made much sense, but EPIC's game hub within Fortnite (such as the LEGO game) allows for a lot of possibilities.

    Disney’s Q1 FY24 Earnings Results Webcast

    The EPIC partnership is a much, much smarter move compared to Disney's old plan (that Chapek had discussed) to build their own "metaverse" type experience.

    Unsure who to vote for regarding the Walt Disney Co. Board

    Peltz and his track record show exactly how he would run Disney if allowed. Slash costs for shareholder value. I'm not sure why anyone would expect him to have a sudden reversal in strategy with Disney and not just do what he has always done when involved in a company. His deals never "work out...

    Rumors. Musings. Casual.

    Following along here and I'm not seeing anything yet that's even remotely new information to anyone who has been following Disney the past few years. It's national news (routinely) that Disney is hurting in many areas. And, we all know they have to bite the bullet and make some tough decisions...

    To be clear, ITM is parroting talking points from CNBC and other reputable outlets while likely not attributing their sources.

    Hate to burst the bubble, but that's not EPCOT and that account is a joke/parody account.

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

    News EPCOT's Harmonious to be replaced with new nighttime spectacular Luminous

    Definitely. The first version of EPCOT Forever, while not perfect by any means, did have some big 'wow' moments with the pyro kites. They didn't work often, but when they did they got the crowd buzzing. Harmonious just didn't do it for us, though we understand why some liked it.

    News EPCOT's Harmonious to be replaced with new nighttime spectacular Luminous

    Initially I feel like it's a better fit in EPCOT than Harmonious. I tend to agree there's a bit too much narration. I see why it's there, but if you have to narrate constantly for guests to understand why a certain song is there ... well, maybe your story isn't very strong. That said, I'll...
