    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    Exactly. And either staffing/operational costs would skyrocket because of all the additional dining and shopping capacity, or the lines would move from attractions to food/merchandise (at least to an extent) because people wouldn't have anything else to do. Instead of waiting 30-45 minutes to...

    News Morocco Pavilion redevelopment

    When I said very minor, I meant relatively minor. It would be a drop in the bucket from a Disney budget standpoint.

    News Morocco Pavilion redevelopment

    Oh it was definitely finalized a while ago, but fixing the tiles would be a very minor expense and an easy change.

    I'm almost impressed that they're pushing forward with these insulting tiles despite the backlash.

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    The first time I rode Forbidden Journey I was fine, but the second time (on a different day) it made me horribly sick. I think it was the combination of the simulator and the Kuka arm movement (which really tosses you around in places; it's not a very pleasant ride). I don't think I'd ride...

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    In your subjective opinion, which is the defining point here. I disagree that there are 10 that are pretty high quality for "quick service" type of food, especially since essentially every single QS option at Disney Springs is better than similar QS offerings in the parks. The Disney Springs QS...

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    I repeated literally the exact same thing I said in the post you quoted -- that most (not all) of Disney QS in the parks is mediocre to poor. I'm not sure you understand what moving the goal posts is.

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    I said most, not all. There are a few exceptions, and you've mentioned some of them. Definitely disagree on Regal Eagle, though -- it's not terrible, but it's mediocre BBQ. Polite Pig is a much better option on property if you want BBQ. I also don't think I'd call any of those clearly superior...

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    I think the QS at Disney Springs is really good but most (not all) of what's available in the parks is mediocre at best.

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    The cost itself isn't really an issue at WDW -- I expect a small upcharge for being at a theme park, but other than that it's not significantly more expensive than the food I eat at home (albeit with some exceptions). The quality is the problem rather than the price itself. I'd have no issues...

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    No. The VQ has significant capacity taken up by locals and repeat visitors, some of whom wouldn't even go to the park if they didn't get a spot. They certainly wouldn't be there waiting in a 90 minute line to ride, because there's no reason to. They can just come back and ride it another time...

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    That's not how it works -- because entering the VQ requires no commitment whatsoever, people try for a spot just because. People here have even talked about doing it -- they'd try for a VQ spot just to see if they get one, and they'll stop by EPCOT (or DHS when it was Rise) if they do but won't...

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    This is the exact opposite of what the VQ is doing. It ensures more capacity goes to repeat riders and locals over first time riders. That's probably the biggest problem with the system.

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    I don't like waiting in line either (FP+ was perfect for me, even though I understand that it was an operational nightmare), but I understand that it's the only way to make a theme park work -- unless you build one that's 5x larger than any existing park (and with staffing levels so high they'd...

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    The VQ does more harm than good here, though. It's better for locals and repeat visitors who have already been on CR at the expense of people who are visiting for the first time, or only visit rarely. There are locals/AP holders who have been on it 25 times and are still taking VQ spots that...

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    It pretty clearly isn't, though. There have been long stretches where the 1 PM VQ drop was available for over an hour (and sometimes multiple hours). There are still days where the demand is higher, but it hasn't been an overwhelming rush (which is the only reason the VQ isn't functioning as a...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    The Nemo attraction is awful and doesn't draw any guests, though. The interior also looks pretty dated, especially with the loss of the undersea base theme. Even the main aquarium tank looks relatively barren/empty compared to the past. I'm not saying Seas should go before Imagination (it...

    Nemo is pretty close, but that space was never really intended to function as a standalone attraction anyways.

    If this is not a blantant money grab, I don't know what is.....

    There's almost no way Cosmic Rewind would get anything remotely close to a 4 hour standby wait. It potentially could for a few days when it first goes to standby (although I think even that is unlikely), but it would be short lived. The people that really want to ride it (and thus would create...

    I assume they'd put it in the Germany pavilion if they were going to bring it over.
