    Lighthouse Point to welcome guests in Summer 2024

    Do we know what kind of flies they are. Also are there birds on the island that could eat the flies? I didn't see any birds in any of the videos I watched.

    Lighthouse Point to welcome guests in Summer 2024

    It seems that this may be an example of Disney not listening to guests but rather wanting to show them an "authentic Bahamian" experience especially with Joe Rhode leading this. Unfortunately I think Disney really missed the mark with this. From the video's I've seen it does not look inspired or...

    When did Disney start overpromising and under delivering?

    I’ve been a Disney fan for close to 50 years, especially the theme parks, but over the past five years or more, in addition to the decline of service and quality, Disney seems to say they’re going to do one thing and then do something much less ambitious. Galaxy’s Edge may be the most egregious...

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

    I bought a Vision Pro about 2 weeks after launch to try to incorporate it into my workflow when I see patients at home. It's a neat product but there are some major thing limiting its use in my option. It's big and heavy, the MacBook screen mirroring is limited to one screen and frankly having a...

    Lighthouse Point to welcome guests in Summer 2024

    Last photo looks like giant bugs or crustaceans crawling towards the beach. Freaks me out.

    Main feature pool at Disney's Caribbean Beah Resort to close for lengthy refurbishment in early 2024

    I heard there was water in it yesterday. Any truth to that?

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

    I haven’t read through all the pages of this thread that I started but could there be a concern from Iger that given this hyper-political world he’s concerned that there are enough right wing leaning shareholders who may vote against Iger just out of spite?

    News Sunglass Hut opens in EPCOT's World Celebration Gardens

    I actually like having Sunglass Huts at WDW because I can use my AP to get a discount there.

    Can we talk about the elephant in the room?

    For some extra fun use a black light and see what happens. I believe this was the original inspiration for the H2Glow nights at Typhoon Lagoon.

    Does Rivers of America have a strong current?

    The site that shall not be named posted a story about a guest who fell overboard from a Tom Sawyer Island raft and said he was scared of drowning because the current is 3x stronger than that of Castaway Creek. I’m not disputing what the guest said but the rivers of America look like they don’t...

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

    If you have a majority of the board and the CEO who is diametrically opposed to him perhaps the majority of the board would then come to its senses and start trying to improve things rather than bow to his pressure.

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

    I don't want to see Disney burn, I don't have a grudge against Iger. But the Disney company today, and specifically the parks are not what they were 10, 15, 20, years ago. Disney has lost much or most of it's magic and I don't see anyone on the current board who is willing to try to bring it...

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

    Yeah, I guess I am leaning that way. I guess I'm willing to take a chance on something either positive or negative rather than go forward with what I know has been negative due to current leadership. What are the opinions of the two board members that he and Rasulo would be replacing?

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

    If you're signed up through compushare on line I think they're distributed that way. Honestly this is the first time I ever paid attention to the board elections.

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

    I'm curious if any news outlets have asked our resident Disney expert @lentesta about any of this. I'd be curious to hear his and Jim's opinions.

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

    Well 9 pages into this thread I started and I still don't have an idea of how to vote (not that it matters). My thoughts are this: If Iger and the board came out with a mea culpa and said something to the effect of "we know we've placed priorities in the wrong place and we're trying to change it...

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

    This is what I'm concerned about. I don't want the company destroyed. I just want it improved, back to focus on quality, guest experience, entertaining movies. My only thought is that having Peltz and Rasulo on the board might be enough of a wake up call to get the rest of the board and Iger to...

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

    I've followed very slightly the whole Nelson Peltz, etc, board fight going on but am conflicted regarding who to vote for. I love Disney World, have been disappointed by what I see as a decline in innovation and the feeling of them resting on their laurels in the theme park space and confused by...
