    News Country Bear Jamboree is getting new songs and acts

    They probably still have one somewhere.... Now that Dole Whip has moved into the Sunshine Tree Terrace which was Orange Bird's home, Orange bird has been moved down to the tiny Refreshmentr Isle window...so..basically no more orange Bird....and the shops that were by Sunshine Tree Terrace...

    Rumor Frontierland Shootin' arcade to close and replaced with DVC Member lounge

    There was, back in the day, a lounge for the Florida Citrus Growesr association at the Enchanted Tiki Room, And RCA Lounge, and I think something for Monsanto...Not sure if there was ever an Eastern Airlines lounge....

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    how could you possibly give it any more than a lukewarm review? There is nothing here to get excited about...or even interested in.... they should have left the original half building if all they wanted was an open hallway. it at least would have been a glass walled structure and should have...

    What should they do with Animation Courtyard?

    Why stop there.... If the purple shaded area were all demolished it would be a huge space to creat an all new multi-attraction land...

    Paddy’s Bar at Ragland Road

    6-8 seats? The wait for Gideons is usually a half hour, the restaurants all seem to be operating at capacity for reservations and they put in a 6 seat bar? That just seems ridiculous... Maybe they are doing craft cocktails and want a smaller crowd? but that is like building a 30 seat Trader...

    Rumor Frontierland Shootin' arcade to close and replaced with DVC Member lounge

    a new DVC resort? Or regular resort? I don't think there is enough demand for another completely new resort...From what I gather from the remarks here, there are tons of vacancies all the time....enough for them to convert portions of theGrand Floridian and Polynesian over to DVC units... and...

    News Country Bear Jamboree is getting new songs and acts

    When Anita Bryant was making her political remarks and her crusade, WDW, Enchanted Tiki Room, Orange Bird et-al were already in existence... No one knew at the time that these projects were designed and implemented that Anita Bryant would go off one her own personal religious thing against the...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Why did we need a "Flex Space" to begin with? For the festivals? Ok, I will buy that, but it doesn't seem purpose set up for festivals...It just seems like a big empty charmless room. Since it was purpose built for the Festivals could it not have been designed to reflect that? This is supposed...

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

    That's what they were hoping for...because that is all it is... just a box with a canopy....

    Rumor Frontierland Shootin' arcade to close and replaced with DVC Member lounge

    It's not right... We were there and wanted to go to the lounge but they had a private group in there that comes every week? That seemed odd too.THe Villain's Lair overlay is absolutely terrible. It doesn't fit the property and is only a ridiculous poorly done name change with some pictures on...

    News Country Bear Jamboree is getting new songs and acts

    That's a good question...it is an IP... and a park specific IP that is really loved in Asia for some reason.... The frozen orange drink is now sold at the small window where they used to sell Dole Whip...which is immensely popular. When they brought Orange bird back out of mothballs 10 years...

    News Country Bear Jamboree is getting new songs and acts

    It was beautiful back in the day....and when the Florida Citrus Growers were the sponsor, and theDole Whip stand next door was the Sunshine Tree Terrace...they had a frozen orange juice think, much like Dole Whip, and the counter area was all underneath a gigantic orange tree with translucent...

    News Country Bear Jamboree is getting new songs and acts

    Setting aside the Tiki purist that I am, the first time I went into Under New Management had been a few years since my last visit...where people were getting up and walking out through the entire show until there were only about 10 people in the audience by the end... (That was the original...

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

    Actually Tron is the one thing in Tomorrowland that is at odds with the rest, and Architecturally uninteresting. The only thing that makes it interesting is the outdoor canopy...remove that and it is a box. The original building designs of Tomorrowland have some architectural interest... Space...

    Rumor Frontierland Shootin' arcade to close and replaced with DVC Member lounge

    Replace the word "Hate" with the words "Don't Understand"... I don't believe anyone in charge hates Disney or the theme parks....they just don't seem to quite understand what makes a lot of things more than the sum of their parts... Perhaps too focused on other things, too under the thumb of the...

    News Revamped Dining Room Unveiled at EPCOT's San Angel Inn Restaurante

    I am hoping it is just the camera brightening things up more than they appear in person... THe original lighting for the pavilion did not have that LED Blue intense wash on the backdrop...It was softer and more natural looking... But again, it could be the camera making thisa look more intense...

    What would make anyone think that Asha should have been dropped in 1900 Park Fare? She fits into the Grand Floridian about as well as Pandora fits Main Street... I know the whole Mandate thing...but that is not a great excuse for putting just anything, anywhere...
