    Has there ever been any legitimacy to the long-standing "rumor" of a Villains-themed park?

    If Disney ever get serious about a 5th gate, they should just make a 2nd Magic Kingdom park. The current one is full, but the most popular park. Make a copy over the TTC and put multi storey parking lots with monorail access in. They could close it in off season (if that ever happens), and...

    Animal Kingdom Lodge vs. Yacht Club

    AKL is a great hotel, has the Disney feel but is very relaxed being a little further away from the hustle and bustle of the parks. It is a completely different setup being at the Epcot resorts. You are able to walk, get a boat (or Gondola?) to the parks, have shops and restaurants on the...

    Dining Reservations not showing in plans

    Try looking on the web version as well. In my experience, the two don't always agree on the bookings you have.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    Nobody has to stay at any of the resorts. If you don"t like the look or the concept, choose one of the many other on site resorts to stay at. It does feel like Disney is just catching up with 1960s Butlins in the UK ;-)

    Long live the Eastern Gateway or how I learned to love the Anaheim City Council after the election.

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach in the UK has a road right through the middle. You don't notice it, although it does affect the layout significantly. https://maps.app.goo.gl/cPgAd5op3eLhy4Ex8

    Strollers aren't the problem!

    The Disney strollers are huge and hard.... easily worse than average. They seem to be primarily designed to be ugly and too large to steal. If they could find a more compact model, that would help.

    Strollers aren't the problem!

    And how are people on the meal plan going to exit? Every other city builds up as the population expands.... they need a mezzanine level along Main Street

    New Roundup Rodeo BBQ sit-down restaurant coming to TSL

    The strings of lights are one of the best indicators that we are supposed to feel toy sized in the Toy Story lands to my mind. A lot of the other stuff feels like they are giant objects, but the lights are really effective. I can't think of a better lighting solution that is practical and on theme.

    New Roundup Rodeo BBQ sit-down restaurant coming to TSL

    A lot of the structures in Pixar place don't look structural. I wonder if they could join enough bits there to build an Als Toy Barn frontage (at an angle across to Joffreys) and have a large merch store using the Pixar Place real estate? It would bring the entrance to the land forward quite a...

    News Improvements coming to the entrances of all four Walt Disney World theme parks

    It would be good if the new layout makes it feel like you have arrived at MK at that point, and you are now inside the magic from that point. Maybe a food outlet with soda, popcorn, cookies etc, a DVC booth ;-), fastpass terminals etc. ?

    What's the best quick service restaurant at Epcot?

    Sunshine Seasons has more variety than anywhere else, and more seating. Going to be the easiest reliable option during a busy season.

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner

    r.e. bus provision once this is open. Disney constantly messes with the bus offering, especially for the water parks. Even if the routes are retained initially, they will be under review once they can see guest demand and judge those feedback forms. Bus returns from Epcot will retain some...

    Disney Now Charging Handling Fees for in-room grocery deliveries.

    Why not make it completely fair, and start charging $6 for arrival and departure days, when those pesky guests want suitcases moving around if this is designed to cover labor costs? The current arrangement means I am paying that $6 in a hidden fee every day, even if I don't use Bell Services...

    Rumor Higher Speed Rail from MCO to Disney World

    The idea of getting a train direct to the Magic Kingdom, like in Paris or Hong Kong, appeals. Unfortunately, that isn't what this is offering. This is a train station near the ESPN World of Sports. The idea is not likely to take a significant segment of traffic onto property unless Disney...

    Transformative Multi-Year Expansion Announced for WDS Paris

    Pandora in Paris would need to be inside a bio-dome like the Eden Project in the UK to work. Star Wars, Marvel and Frozen all make more sense for attracting more paying customers to DLP.

    News Rafiki's Planet Watch is closing Oct. 21st will reopen in Summer 2019

    All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    News Rafiki's Planet Watch is closing Oct. 21st will reopen in Summer 2019

    My prediction is that the enhancements will be a tie in based around The Walking Dead with the skeletal pigs and goats in the Affection Section, which have gone feral after 6 months backstage left to their own devices.
