    News Country Bear Jamboree is getting new songs and acts

    Might as well have removed the show altogether if they felt the original setlist wasn't enough to anchor it.

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    Let's not forget everyone's favorite excuse for shoddy park-related decision-making.

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    Don't forget IncrediCoaster to Screamin' and Mission Breakout to Tower, both objective downgrades, both received positively by middle-of-the-road fans. I think it's such an important distinction you've made. They've blurred the line between both the parks division and every other division of...

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

    Aside from the obvious points about removing any semblance of conflict by omitting Dr. Facilier, I still believe 'Dig a Little Deeper' should've been used in the attraction's finale. It's no Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah, by any means, but it at least feels like a more satisfying number to end with than what...

    A Brief and Incomplete History of Splash Mountain

    I assure you no one walked off that ride disappointed on opening day. It's a travesty it barely made it to 30 years while equally-great attractions like Pirates and Mansion are pushing 60.

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

    This is such a silly oversimplification of why the attraction was successful. The Timber Mountain Log Ride at Knott's has both of the things you just listed: a drop and air conditioning. Is it a better ride than Splash Mountain? Not even close. Most people will obviously enjoy the core log flume...

    Which set scenes are sacred at Storybook Land? What would you like to see?

    I don't think replacing Alice in Wonderland, Toad, or Peter Pan, who doesn't take up much in the way of room, would be ideal. I think the Three Little Pigs might be the most expendable, given the space it takes up. I don't think Moana fits the aesthetic of the attraction well. I think what makes...

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    Makes me sad thinking of how much Splash could've been plussed with the current tech available. Can't wait to hear the rhetoric about how much "better" Bayou is because of its shiny new toys.

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    Doesn't remotely resemble the bayou from the film. Color me unsurprisingly unimpressed.

    A hundred percent. They had the perfect skeleton in place for a land that could rival Tokyo DisneySea in terms of theming. All they had to do was give Screamin' a proper queue, re-skin Triton's Carousel , add a Mystic Manor-style dark ride in place of the Maliboomer, give the Fun Wheel a proper...

    News Avatar Experience coming to Disneyland

    That name makes the most sense, so naturally, it didn't make the final cut. Pretty sure it was just Disney wanting to disassociate from anything remotely pertaining to the term 'Splash.'

    News Avatar Experience coming to Disneyland

    I think it wins the award for ugliest exterior for an attraction by a country mile.

    News Avatar Experience coming to Disneyland

    Don't remind me. The damage, much of it irreversible, current leadership has done in the last decade is staggering.

    Which time period represents "peak" Disneyland to you?

    I would second this, specifically the period between March and August, or after Indy opened and before the People Mover closed. You could say the arrangement of old and unspoiled classics like Pirates, Haunted Mansion, and the original Submarine Voyage, along with new classics like Star Tours...

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    Would anyone be surprised if they re-used the face mold for Belle to save money? You can't deny that aside from the nose and mouth, the shape of the heads, down to the round cheeks, are eerily similar. You can't say for certain, but there's a bit of a Hall of Presidents precedent for this kind...

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    I'm still holding out hope that the change can be reversed in the event new leadership takes over, but that might be a pipe dream at this point. One can dream.

    Tiana's Bayou Adventure: Disneyland Watch & Discussion

    I think comparisons between both attractions are inevitable, not to mention permanent. I foresee a great deal of backlash if Bayou isn't up to par. I also wouldn't be surprised if, in the event the attraction were poorly-received, they altered some elements after opening to address backlash a la...

    News Disneyland to give Tarzan’s Treehouse a new theme

    It's sad when things get to a point where you're surprised they do something right. The ostrich is a great touch.
