    What’s with these wait times?!

    When a park is overflowing with people, the average ride has a THRC of 2000 people per hour, and 1700 fast passes are distributed for each hour per ride.

    Artificial wooden railing

    I'm not sure which specific one you're talking about - but it's likely either a type of formed plastic, or a lot of stuff that Disney does is essentially a form of sculpted plaster.

    Easiest Transportation from Paris

    You can take the Paris metro to the rer (two different types of train. Basically like subway vs commuter rail in the states. They sell combo tickets at the metro stations. The Disneyland Paris train station is right outside the park so yes you can easily walk to the entrance. All the hotels...

    Rumor Country Bear Jamboree to be Replaced by Toy Story Show?

    I'd be fine seeing CBR retired but not sure Toy Story is the property I'd like to see replace it.

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    Painting the floor would help but since you see the floor in the animated segments ideally you'd want the floor you're on to move with it. Projection mapping could easily project around the cars.

    News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

    Finding a way to projection map onto the floor would be the biggest change I'd vote for.

    DLP Coasters

    I think Paris's version of space is more intense than RNC (though not the launch). The other coasters are probably comparable.

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

    Make it indoors! And I'm fairly certain there's a way to work around this. Star Wars land at Disneyland isn't gonna close early to my knowledge, and I'm guessing toontown won't either when they open runaway railway there. Either the launch site could be moved - or the land could be indoors -...

    What to study to become an Imagineering creative director? (any insider info?)

    OH. This is a little down the road for you but I've also heard several times now that in regards to Imagineering specifically - they won't look at anything in your portfolio that uses IP. Which is ironic as hell but there ya go. So keep that in mind in your college years.

    What to study to become an Imagineering creative director? (any insider info?)

    Welcome! I'd echo what @lazyboy97o said. It's nearly impossible to target imagineering specifically - especially early on in your career. With the way world works now the best way to move up is to hop scotch around different companies working your way up the ladder. It's a lot easier to become...

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

    Build bridges over the access roads to that huge plot of land between the tracks and the utilidors. Could allow for a properly spaced fantasyland station too. There's already precedents for this with some lovely themed bridges you don't known are bridges at Disney sea, a bugs land, and at world...

    Disneyland to customers: Visit us now! Ahora! That means NOW! Please?

    This is exactly like the opening of WDW in 1971. Like 4 months from now when everyone thinks it's finally safe there will probably be a major traffic jam too.

    A small theme park in Orlando?

    Something smaller, with roots to the area, that specifically caters to the local market with various events, incentivizes annual passes, is designed to be a place that's just fun to hang out in, prioritizes environment design, offers unique types of attractions, might have some very interesting...

    Epcot Monorail Station Design

    I could be making this up, but I think I remember hearing it was designed so that the other line would right next to the current one in the same direction (I'd assume with loading and unloading on the same side of the platform for each train).

    A small theme park in Orlando?

    And I'm talking about creating a community theme park, definitely not the amusement places like Fun Spot.

    A small theme park in Orlando?

    Cypress gardens was taken over by the wild adventure guys - turning it into a low budget amusement park, and then later turned into legoland. So it's it's not really around anymore - that's what I'm talking about. It didn't last long enough to see the growth of Orlando into what it's become...

    A small theme park in Orlando?

    There's absolutely a market for something that caters to locals as a place for them to hang out away from tourists and take things at a slower pace. (If cypress gardens had lasted long enough and was in a better location I think that's exactly the kind of thing)

    What will happen when the Skyliner breaks down?

    Pretty sure it's customary for there to be a diesel generator or engine at the wheelhouse in case of a power outage. Evacuation would probably only be if there was some kind of mechanical failure or other issue at the station.
