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

    Wasn’t there tonight, but I did watch Luminous from in front of Walt the week it debuted and there was 0 interaction with the show by the lights that were online at that time (and they don’t play the music, either) I don’t believe that has changed in the past 6 months, both from personal...

    Universal Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex) - Opens 2025

    Yep, Waterworld. Suppose I should have specified across all the Universal parks, not just Orlando (although they really should put it here, too).

    Universal Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex) - Opens 2025

    Which, fingers crossed, will hopefully end up like another Universal mainstay popular attraction from an awful movie.

    HHN 2024

    I would expect the end of the month/early July, or when/shortly after the final house is announced for the multi-night passes to be available, if I had to guess.

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

    As long as they're widening all the way from BVD to Avalon (mainly to match lane alignments since the Sawgrass/Flemings connection is finally being fast tracked) and working with CFX to finally signalize the 429 interchange, anything less than that is like putting a normal size bandaid on a...

    HHN 2024

    That’s my interpretation of the house announcements being all original houses so far. They must have seen enough early movement on hotel reservations and single night ticket sales to feel they don’t need to lead with the casual stuff to get early mindshare. Of course that also makes me think...

    Miscellaneous Tokyo Thoughts

    If it weren't for Fantasy Springs, I wouldn't even be considering a vacation package for a November trip, but international travel is definitely a once in a lifetime thing for us at this point still, so I'm willing to eat the cost of a 3 day package to guarantee a full day of easy access to that...

    [Rumor] Rip Ride Rockit Possibly Closing

    This is pretty much it for me. It got too rough too fast, along with some other issues, for me personally (and I’m one that is generally very tolerant of rough rides). It wasn’t all that great of a ride to start with anyway, so along with other issues…meh, good riddance.

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

    Likely just the tracks that are currently unavailable for streaming. This isn't at all uncommon with albums with multiple artists, actually. Getting the streaming rights lined up with multiple artists/writers/etc. can be a real pain. Since all tracks are available for purchase, it's almost...

    Scentsy and Walt Disney World are bringing a new guest experience within Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom

    If it weren't a partnership with an MLM I wouldn't care about it and would probably even think it's cute. However, the partnership with an MLM makes this a hard no for me.

    News Disney World Earmarks 80 Acres for Affordable Housing

    I was there, a group of about 3 to my back and a little further forward in the middle section with one being noticeably louder than the others kept constantly interrupting whoever was speaking. They managed to get them to answer if there was a plan for buses, and they said no. Those people and...

    News Disney World Earmarks 80 Acres for Affordable Housing

    Which the residents at the community meeting said they don’t want in their area (because mass transit = poors and crime, that’s always the reason), and then turned around at the BCC meeting chiming in like that was something the developers should be considering to get their approval.

    News Disney World Earmarks 80 Acres for Affordable Housing

    It’s literally already 4 lanes under the first 429 overpass heading north and they’re currently widening it to 4 lanes at the 2nd overpass… If you mean the Turnpike, that has a published plan already as well on the county website (I’ll maybe find it later when I actually post this after work)...

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

    Which was spearheaded by Roy E. Disney, which as I said, isn't happening again. There are two options as I see it, Iger or Peltz. There is no realistic 3rd option (supporting neither and ousting Iger without some opposite stabilizing power) that doesn't result in a faster, more violent version...

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

    Please tell me what the 3rd option is that isn't just a new mask on Iger/Peltz version X.X You think that Peltz or anyone else that has the money and power to pull off something like this is doing it for essentially altruistic purposes and will truly hand over their control to someone else...

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

    Sure, but that's not the option presented at the moment and not realistic, so any discussion in that direction is not productive or very reasonable. It's more akin to a Blue Sky discussion, which this is not.

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

    And you (the royal you for all those that seem to be in favor of Peltz & Co.) believe that investment will actually happen in a way that is positive for the parks and us as fans once they have control/a sizable say? I think it's pretty obvious the answer would be no given everything we know...

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

    I'm just blown away that after years of bemoaning the "sharp pencil boys" and the current corporate/Wall St. mindset that there are people in here advocating for the even more "sharp pencil boy" corporate raider type and listening to the same kind of Wall St. analyst mindset that pushes the...

    News Disney World Earmarks 80 Acres for Affordable Housing

    I know Nicole is, but that doesn’t matter unless you’re taking the stance that absolutely no additional housing of any type should be built at all, luxury, middle, or affordable. As for the water pressure, are you purposely ignoring the ongoing work on the water main/line(s) that they broke...

    News Disney World Earmarks 80 Acres for Affordable Housing

    I wish I could say I'm surprised at some of the things I overheard at the meeting tonight being said to various officials. It's likely going to get approved because there's very little that major developers want that gets successfully pushed back against and I expect there to be a max of 2 "No"...
