    < paraphrased> E's not dead, E's just resting. E's a Norwegian Blue. E's probably pinin' for the fjords. "'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be!

    Rise of the Resistance Thread

    Totally makes sense from what we've seen in the framing of the building. I remember the angled corridor on the second floor. Wow! Best Easter present I got by a long shot. Thank you!!! EDIT: Wait--why did you change them? They were so much easier to read when you first posted them.

    Rumor New Parade: Magic Happens

    I haven't followed the Trader Joe's issue. I only learned a few years ago that back in the '60s our local convenience store in Garden Grove, Pronto Market at Chapman and West St., was actually the forerunner of Trader Joe's. It was larger than a typical 7/11, had a small meat counter, some...

    News Guardians of the Galaxy attraction confirmed for Epcot

    That's a much more expensive proposition in FL than CA. With the high water table, they typically don't dig below ground level, except for specific purposes. That's why much of Magic Kingdom, including Main St. and Fantasyland is actually the second story with their full basements being the...

    Rumor New Parade: Magic Happens

    Yeah, and it was a petty way for me to respond. But I have deep roots at Disneyland going back decades. Sometimes I get lazy and think that means I don't have to lay out my arguments and back them up just like everyone else. Plus I'm getting older and crankier by the day.

    Lincoln watch

    I would disagree about the effort to open up walkways and make them safer. If anything, I think they haven't gone far enough. I don't like losing any more landscape for hardscape. DL has become less of a suburban "park" and more of an urban space. But if they're going to cram more people...

    Rumor New Parade: Magic Happens

    Do you know people in the Entertainment Division in Hong Kong? At DL, Paint has had a lot of problems. Even when they tried to learn from Hong Kong's experience, there were problems. Setting up the costumes is very labor intensive, fitting the performers is a constant pain, and it's...

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Construction/Specifics

    We have input from various people who have more inside info than I do. I'm working on inference and intuition. What I can glean from comments of people "in the know" is that certain aspects of the Falcon's interior will be very familiar and perhaps even mind-blowing. But there will also be...

    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Construction/Specifics

    To expand on what I have said in the WDW Falcon thread, this is a tremendous piece of work by member 180*. I think it's upwards of 75% accurate in terms of how one Hondo room leads to two Falcon interiors, each feeding two turntables and one ADA cockpit. It could be up into the 90% range, but...

    I should have made that connection. Indeed, it's very huge.

    Lincoln watch

    Sorry, I didn't mean to be argumentative with you--just with the notion of shoehorning PhilharMagic into DCA on the cheap. I agree--it's unlikely they have gotten rid of Lincoln. There's no way Disney Studios will pay the costs for removal. Remember, the expense incurred by any movie...

    Mickey's PhilharMagic coming to DCA this April

    Side screens where? Are they putting a new ultra-wide screen in front of the existing proscenium and orchestra pit, wrapping around in front of the side boxes and removing rows of seats in the process)? WDW's screen has an aspect ratio of 5.35:1 (150'x28' according to Wikipedia). Measuring a...

    Lincoln watch

    Ummmm...that would be the PhilharMagic Lite show from DLP, not the ultra widescreen version seen in WDW and HKDL. But the bottom line for the Opera House is whether a film promo will get more butts in the seats than Lincoln. That's it.

    Almost the length? We saw this room framed in before the skin was applied to the exterior. This includes the portal for the screen and the angled side walls where the two TIE fighters are hanging on the wall. At most it was 35-40% of the length. EDIT: As Marc Davis fan pointed out below...

    "Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run - Ride and Queue Details SPOILERS!!!

    I can see how he has the overall layout from Hondo to cockpit, and the exit paths right. But with respect to the Falcon interior, I thought Marni said you wouldn't have to walk past one cockpit corridor to get to another. Believe me, he really laid out what I had been trying to visualize for...

    Is this close? Gold is your path to load Turntable A or C. Blue is my path to load B or D. Green are the new bulkheads in the curved corridor with hatches in them. Pink is a new door between the chess room and the curved corridor. Purple is possible routes to the ADA pod. This plan...

    You're more informed on this than I am. I shall pass this along as a friend (I mean Bothan) was distressed because they were saving comp tickets for visiting family this summer. This could be good news! Thanks. UPDATE 4/19: I'm hearing that CMs will be told later about block out dates for...
