    News Test Track to be reimagined

    Guess I’m in the minority, but I still enjoyed it more than most switchbacks and preshows. Nice distraction, and any excuse for some little family competitions is welcome. Now if it only reliably transferred over to the ride experience…

    News New Pirates of the Caribbean-themed lounge

    Which blows. And worse by the fact that the far superior original is still pictured for Sunshine Tree Terrace on MDE. Such a tease.

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

    I intended to avoid POV videos, but couldn’t help myself after seeing all the comments. Wish I had a unique take, but alas, I very much agree with most of the negative comments. I didn’t think this would be better than Splash. Genuinely thought it would be close. It’s not. This would be a...

    Rumor Big Thunder Mountain to receive full retrack

    For my money, BTM has aged better than almost any other attraction (not just coaster). It’s as fun for me now as it was in the 80s. Bench seating with single lap bar = awesome SM should be first. And RRC And Buzz And Imagination….

    Rank the 9 roller coasters at Walt Disney World

    Guardians (maybe most fun coaster ever) BTMR (aged well. bench seats = awesome) Everest (impressive but not as fun as BTMR) RRC (dated but still good) Tron (great launch, then meh) Space (could be #2 with new track) 7DMT (great theming. way too short) Slinky (solid family coaster. garbage...

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

    The more I hear about these numbers, the less excited I become. Wake me up when there is a real project getting underway.

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

    So good at hyping up the possibility of maybe announcing the potential of adding something at some park(s) at some point in the (probably distant) future. Only Disney…

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

    Great show in parts, especially the open and close. Visually stunning throughout. Some real wow moments mixed in. But… music nowhere near Illuminations level. So for me, they only got some of it right.

    News Hatbox Ghost coming to Walt Disney World's Haunted Mansion

    Ok Fine. But it is still a single animatronic announced 14 months ago. Silly that it takes TWDC this long for such a small add. They’d be better served waiting on announcement until it is further along. Or better yet, having more substantial news to announce at D23.

    News Hatbox Ghost coming to Walt Disney World's Haunted Mansion

    This discussion sums up the sad state of affairs at WDW. That it takes OVER A YEAR to install an overhyped, overrated cloned animatronic, is simply ridiculous. Would have more impact if they would make these additions without such fanfare. But they had so little to announce last year…

    News Destination D23 2023

    It’s sad commentary that the bar is now set so low that this presentation seems better than D23. I am happy with a few of the announcements, but it is nowhere near enough to reverse the downward trend.

    Journey of Water featuring Moana coming to Epcot

    Yep. One under-hypes and over-delivers. The other... seems to go the other way.

    News Hatbox Ghost coming to Walt Disney World's Haunted Mansion

    Putting aside the misplacement, it’s a ridiculous amount of hype and time to add 1 cloned animatronic. Imagine the social media frenzy if something like this was added on one of these 2-3 day refurbs WITHOUT announcing ahead of time. I think would be far more impactful.

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    Amen to this. MK/EPCOT attraction capacity is essentially neutral over the last 25 years. Almost everything “new” has replaced something else. One could argue that the only true additions are a carpet spinner, an extra dumbo spinner, and a mediocre ratatouille ride. DHS/AK have had some...

    Disney Visa card

    Agree with the majority above. I’ve had the premier card for over a decade. It was decent at first but is now a terrible card for everyday use. But… ok to have in the bag for select occasions. Solid promotions pop up from time to time, like 10% at gas stations and 5% at grocery stores and...

    News Haunted Mansion closing for short refurbishment in August 2023

    I’d like to answer “yes, it does seem like a long time.” But this is what we have come to expect.

    Is attendance really down at WDW this or…

    WDW has built up a base of repeat visitors over the decades due to the stellar reputation for the QUALITY of the experience. The price increases are a deterrent, yes. But I think the declining quality of the parks during the Bobs era is the bigger issue. Speaking of eras, T. Swift can show...

    News Another Fight at Magic Kingdom

    No fights this past week, but I gotta say…in 40 years of coming here I have never seen as much “place holding/line jumping” as I’ve seen this week. In virtually every significant queue we had one or multiple people jump ahead to meet up with their “party.” When just a short distance it’s...
