    New Dark Ride

    I'm not sure you can make the ride and then decide where to place it. You need to find the location, and then decide what attraction could fit there. e.g. Tomorrowland in MK, or Launch Bay in DHS....

    Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

    It looks to me that the tram tour re-route is a temporary bodge whilst they work on getting something new built to allow it to go. Its a relatively cheap job to lay new tarmac, and move the queue line . Hopefully they will manage to line the new route with some new features.... Endor with ewoks...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    There is some space to expand the Boardwalk between IG and BW if Disney wanted to make it into Springs Jnr around there. I suspect the returns are better from continuing to add restaurants inside Epcot though. Japan and WS Space restaurant won't be the last additions: even if it needs a new...

    The Case of the Missing Dolphin Light

    Alan Lapidus did write about the lights for the Swan, but not how the Dolphin was approached. Lapidus, Alan, (2007), Everything By Design: My Life as an Architect, New York, NY: St. Martin’s Press

    The Case of the Missing Dolphin Light

    I suspect the resort gets away with the light on a technicality. Whilst the triangle reaches to 257ft, most of the section above the main roofline is all fake building. The actual building structure is likely below 200ft; and somehow they got away with using that as the height.

    With Disneyland Paris announcing the closure date and re-theme of Rock N Roller Coaster, is WDW next?

    Isn"t part of the restriction around the use of the "Marvel" trademark? One for the lawyers to argue about... but it doesn't sound like the type of legal argument it would be wise to initiate.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    You cannot swap the stations without reversing the direction, as otherwise you have a full Monorail carriage arriving at the load station, so there isn't space for anybody to board. Swapping Epcot around means doing the same at the other end of the line too... It wouldn't work.

    DHS Parking lot remodel and expansion

    Presumably most of that mud will become paved entrance plaza, tripling the area after bag checks in front of the gates? That looks like a good improvement easing guest flow in and out. Any chance they will move the gates forward to give the parks opening plaza a little more elbow room? It is...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    No they don't. The gondolas do not need to be evenly spaced. If an ECV load at the mid station needs the gondola to stay in the station a little longer, there will be a wider than normal gap in front betwen the slow gondola. Other gondola cars will stack up behind it, and also take longer to...

    Rumor Is the End of Innoventions Near?

    I am fairly sure that crown is currently on the shoulders of the Studio park in Paris. It is in the early stages of a DCA scale rebuild though, so its future looks much better than its history.

    Hollywood Studios

    I always liked the original idea of the Studios; opening up Disney's production facilities to the masses. It was a great idea... but the company didn't pull it off, at least not over the long term. There is no realistic path back to that from where Disney is these days, so they are finally...

    Disney revoking AP's if you resell merch

    Disney are just making a point that commercial operators should be dealing with the company on commercial arrangements. Getting a discount potentially allows ebay traders to undercut Disney and their partners: and it harms the image of Disney. How long would Disney let somebody stand by a quick...

    News Tomorrowland Speedway and Walt Disney World Railroad to be impacted by TRON construction at the Magic Kingdom

    Is there no option to run the trains in reverse, back and forth around the unaffected track? Maybe the driver view is impractical, or probably the signalling only supports clockwise operation?

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    The Riviera work only affects the Epcot line. Surely they will still have an option to open the DHS route in isolation. The majority of the CBR to DHS studios traffic would be there, Echo lake would only have 50% of the traffic without Epcot... but that is still a decent amount of traffic with...

    The Christmas events will be on at the moment. Mickeys Big Band gets great reports in the Studios, as does the parade in the Magic Kingdom. You can see an entertainment schedule here: http://www.dlpguide.com/calendar/daily-park-schedules/ Space Mountain and Big Thunder mountain are both...

    Random observations from an evening at DLP

    AC/DC is presumably the key to it. Meet Tony Star at his HQ, Iron Man is needed to fix something, off you go with Back in Black etc. blasting out

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    You can't associate gondolas and Fall... it has to bounce in for Spring. I am taking that announcement with a pinch of salt. You don't invest that sort of capital, mothball it and then open it days before the busiest period of utilisation. If it has initial teething issues, 6 months gives...
