    News Driving Force Behind Disney's Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser Leaves WDI for Gensler, Joining Former Chief Bob Weis

    I know we're all going on at naseaum about something that's going to close but I was just in Vegas and if these random hotels can have pretty good themes, why in the world couldn't Disney have built a full sized star wars resort with all the bells and whistles, and then just add a small offshoot...

    News Disneyland to Electrify Autopia: Are Tomorrowland Speedway's gas cars next?

    Fair enough. I'm referring to the WDW version. Didn't even like it as a kid.

    News Disneyland to Electrify Autopia: Are Tomorrowland Speedway's gas cars next?

    Don't throw tomatoes at me but I've always thought this ride was silly and takes up too much space. Oh and doesn't fit Tomorrowland's theme. I'd be happy to see it go.

    “Something major” coming to DHS???

    Respectfully that couldn't be further from the truth. People would go nuts. Aerosmith and the cultural impact they had not only historically but at the time the ride was made doesn't even light a candle to Taylor Swifts impact.

    “Something major” coming to DHS???

    In all seriousness if they did do that, the demand would be huge. Taylor Swift's own ride? With exclusive merch at the end of it? It'd be pandemonium.

    News Walt Disney World Annual Pass price increases October 2023

    To me it speaks to the grand canyon sized gulf between the teams who worry about revenue vs. the teams worried about customer experience. It's as if the two groups never come together and even discuss whether these bean counting moves are going to help or hurt from a customer engagement...

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

    Given how much your average attraction costs, and the fact that they have parks all over the world, I assume this investment will just cover some of the blue sky concepts announced recently for WDW. Good I guess?

    News Soarin' Over California returning to EPCOT for a limited time

    I wish I could take a trip just to Epcot for this! My families' favorite ride back in the day.

    News Destination D23 2023

    Same with me. I'd run to Tokyo before even considering dropping serious money on a WDW vacation. and my husband loved Universal when we went last year so we are eagerly awaiting the new park.

    News Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to permanently close this fall

    Too expensive for guests? I guess we'll never know but that's my two cents. I'm surprised they didn't try to lower the cost first.

    News Disney CFO Christine McCarthy says Disney will continue to focus on existing intellectual property for new park investments

    I also agree with this. I think I've summarized my opinion enough but basically my reaction to this is "Shrug. Makes sense from a business perspective. Now show me what you've got". Many things people are wringing their hands over in this thread are long gone anyway. So make your future IP rides...

    News Disney CFO Christine McCarthy says Disney will continue to focus on existing intellectual property for new park investments

    It's a business decision though. I honestly can't understand opinions like yours, even if I loved the non-IP attractions Disney has had and still has. They have the IP, so it's going in their parks.

    News Disney CFO Christine McCarthy says Disney will continue to focus on existing intellectual property for new park investments

    It's inevitable given the amount of IP Disney now owns, especially after the introduction of Disney+. Now I've never been a CEO, but it makes little business sense to me to *not* use your own IP within your parks. It's also a business driving move in their eyes - you like a particular IP? Oh...

    Living With The Land tomato tree?

    Agreed. Really enjoyed doing that tour years ago. Didn't it used to be free? I was quite disappointed to see the Living with the Land ride wasn't open when were there in November.

    Disney World Planning is far too complicated (CNBC article)

    My point is Disney is way too complicated for them, not that they are completely advserse to planning a vacation. The input isn't worth the output (cost is also a factor).

    Disney World Planning is far too complicated (CNBC article)

    I've gotten about one sentence into talking about planning a Disney vacation and all my friends' eyes glaze over. None of them are interested enough to do that much work as you have outlined here.

    Disney Genie and Genie+ at Walt Disney World

    That's the rub for me, I feel like Universal's gives me value for that price (or higher). And the funny thing is when were there last we didn't even need it. at all. (We didn't buy it) as opposed to our one day at Disney where we also didn't buy Genie + but I could see how people would feel...

    Agreed I told my husband the next Orlando trip in 3-4 years we will definitely be staying here.

    News Walt Disney World to resume complimentary parking at its resort hotels

    I'm as skeptical as they come in terms of Disney. But this is a move in the right direction, undoubtedly caused by negative guest feedback, social media, and press. Just like many of us said would/should happen. Where's all the "too many people are going to Disney, they don't care about...
