    Is Genie+ worth it at Epcot with test track closed?

    It would be nice if they moved Cosmic Rewind to Stand-By + Genie+ when Test Track closes... though I have no evidence that they would do that (or even consider it). FWIW, we found that EVERYONE went straight to Ratatouille at the start of the Extended Evening hours, so hitting that some other...

    5th gate anyone.......?

    Just spit balling... DHS was built as a half day park... Typhoon Lagoon was also built as a half day park (both parks opened in 1989 within a month of each other). Caribbean Beach had opened the year prior and they opened five addtional hotels in the immediate area in the three years after DHS...

    What should they do with Animation Courtyard?

    I mean, if you're going to create a path that links a new Toontown Area back where Animation Courtyard is behind VotLM to Toy Story Land Behind, can't you just cut access behind the Chinese Theater facade, connect the MMRR building to the Walt Disney Presents building, create an entrance out the...

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

    So, is TBA back open for previews today? Or have the animatronics started eating the tourists?

    Rumor Moana E-Ticket Ride to Adventureland

    Thanks anyways. When I originally heard the concept for Fire Mountain, my assumption was some sort of method where the car itself had two sets of wheel boogies (one on the bottom and one on the top) and somewhere along the ride, it would transition between a track below you and a track above you...

    Rumor Moana E-Ticket Ride to Adventureland

    Sorry to take this thread off course, but I've always wanted to know... Was the original intent to use the Vekoma Flying Dutchman model (Stealth [formerly], Batwing [Six Flags America], Nighthawk [Carowinds]) for Fire Mountain? Was this model possibly specifically developed (in collaboration...

    Rumor D23 2024 WDW Rumors, Predictions & Discussion

    Turning Red and Luca have characters that I'd love to see around the park (they are already at Disneyland for Pixar Fest and, IMHO, I think they are really well done), but I struggle to see how you do anything more with those films than little Easter Eggs or Meet and Greets). Elemental has a...

    News Morocco Pavilion redevelopment

    My theory is that they degrade the quality slowly... one thing at a time... so when they announce the total retheme of the area to Agrabah, everyone says "oh wow! This is so nice! What an improvement!"

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

    The carnotaurus model is also the same as is used in the movie (though not sure which came first, or if they were developed simultaneously)

    5th gate anyone.......?

    The real goal is keeping as much money on property as possible. From the time they touch down at MCO to the time they board the plane to leave. This was why I was so shocked that Disney dropped Magical Express. Magical Express did such a great job of ensuring your Disney trip started the moment...

    5th gate anyone.......?

    How long is the typical person's trip to Orlando? 5-7 days? Would adding a 5th gate at WDW get people to stay at least 25% longer (an extra 2 days?) I would argue it would not (5-7 days is the standard vacation time that most American's are locked into and it would be tough to change the...

    Rumor Spaceship Earth Redo Shelved Indefinitely

    Shame, I figured the best way to put new life into the ride would be to replace the ride system altogether...

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

    Apparently, in the new ride, Indiana Jones and Marian own a thrift shop and Indiana Jones is looking for some new members to join his fantasy football team! (No boulders or Nazis, or snakes... sorry!)

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

    Really makes you appreciate how perfectly set-up the drop was in the original ride... the fun and frivolous laughing place transitioning into the warning (using the same song in a minor tone), then the ominous vultures, the "don't throw me into the briar patch" reverse psychology, then the...

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

    I mean, that would make sense... by being first (and first by so much) it also ensures that when you search for TBA POV on YouTube, the official one is always at the top (as opposed to some bloggers video which might have some comments that Disney is not as fond of)

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

    Curious that they would release a full ride POV so early (I mean, this is before media previews, before DVC... pretty sure the only ones who have ridden this so far are Imagineers and TBA cast members). Just seems odd... I can't think of another ride that they released a full ride POV so...
