    News Major Hurricane Dorian impacts to Walt Disney World 2019

    Here we go again. I'm close to where Yert3 lives, also about 15 minutes from WDW. I evacuated to Tennessee during Irma, which ended up being a lot more dangerous than had I remained and ridden it out. The car decided to break down right as I was trying to leave and I had to delay and get a...

    Rumor Brazil (and maybe others) Pavilion Coming to Epcot [not about Brazilian people nor a country wish list]

    Where? If you mean the bodies of water further back into the art, that's just Caribbean Beach Resort (you can replicate this angle in Google Maps and see it's the same). If you're referring to what is more to the left of the pavilion, I believe there's a rather large storage building. Then...

    Journey of Water featuring Moana coming to Epcot

    It appears to be going in Future World close by to Imagination, in the space where they're demolishing Innoventions West.

    Epic Universe discussion

    Why do you have 4 "it's bad" options? Two of which are exactly the same... Content wise, the park looks like it has the potential to be really good and potentially amazing. The artwork itself is intentionally missing details because Universal thought they would be secretive about revealing...

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex)

    I think I see the blue trail you're referring to, but i'm not sure i'd jump to the assumption of it being a log flume track, i'm not even sure it's water at all. It's a very nondescript blue-ish line, and it's even less detailed than the other rides seen in the art. Even in spite of the artist...

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex)

    Where is a log flume in the art? Only boat ride I can see is the Mack Splash Battle flat ride.

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex)

    Green pipes as a form of transport have been in every Mario game since the original 1985 Super Mario Bros, they're in no way unique to Mario Galaxy. Also, the design of Peach's Castle used in Galaxy was first established in Super Mario 64, released in 1996. This design is seen in all Mario games...

    Universal's Epic Universe (South Expansion Complex)

    I am pleased with what i've seen. The concept art is hiding a lot of the finer details of the specific lands. Most of the detail we're being shown is in the hub and walkways. But I have some level of confidence that the final result will be high quality. We've already seen models of Super...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    I wasn't even the one who brought up cars as a comparison in the first place. Someone else complained about how hot a car is when it has been sitting parked for hours in the sun, which it is. I simply pointed out that after being turned on with the A/C circulating for a few seconds, this problem...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    LMAO, I live in Florida... :rolleyes: After about 10 seconds, my car at least starts to cool down considerably. More comfortable than an enclosed box without A/C will be (even with ventilation and forced exterior airflow). I did not make such a comparison, at least not with the same framing...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Getting into a hot car is extremely unpleasant too, everyone hates that sensation as well. But at the very least people generally have a working air conditioning unit in their car which will generally kick in within 10 seconds or so. In the Skyliner, you're going to be trapped for a minimum of 5...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    They're enclosed vehicles that don't have A/C. In Florida. You don't need to have ridden them to realize there's simply no way these things are going to be a comfortable temperature for at least 3 quarters of the year.

    Rumor New Monorails Coming Soon?

    I've ridden the monorail in recent months, the train cabins are still in the same poor condition they've been in for years now. They still have bad smelling A/C, the wall and ceiling panels are worn out etc. I would assume whatever rehabs they've undergone have mostly been mechanical in nature...

    PotC mist screen removed/turned off for good

    In a vacuum, the new Barbossa animatronic is a quality figure with a well executed (albeit very simple) skeleton effect. But it doesn't even fit in the scene they placed it in Paris, let alone if they put it in Florida. The cavern scenes had an ominous and quiet presence that the stationary...

    PotC mist screen removed/turned off for good

    The only similarity Florida and Paris have is they both take place in Adventureland and adopt a more tropical atmosphere, eschewing the New Orleans related theming. Other than that, they're very different. I've ridden the Florida and Paris versions in person, but even someone who has only seen...

    Voice Acting Legend Jim Cummings Accused Of Sexual Assault and Animal Abuse

    Christ... If true, this one is going to sting. He has done SO MANY voices from the 80s onward. If you weren't already familiar with him, you wouldn't believe how many. Pooh, Tigger and Pete are just some of his more well known ones. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Cummings

    New Harry Potter Coaster Confirmed for 2019 (Dragon's Challenge Closing Sept 4th)

    The design still looks the same to me besides the different facial features and bow and arrow. Both of which make sense plot-wise given that this is clearly a different character than the centaur from the first movie. That first movie's centaur was named Firenze, and he was noted (especially in...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Well the one thing i'll say is that Ian McDiarmid absolutely stole every scene he was in in the previous movies. He was captivating and hugely entertaining regardless of whether he was playing the politician OR the Sith lord. He really is a fantastic actor and made even the most over the top...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    I have always held the opinion that while technically "bad" movies, the prequels are still very entertaining movies. And they have a ton of great concepts and a very solid overall story foundation. The problem was that the execution was botched. Lucas has a lot of primal creative talent, and I...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Most of the more popular fan theories about her identity WERE objectively better, or at least had elements to them that were more consistent and logical (not to mention more interesting and entertaining) than the official version. So yes many of the "made up ideas" WERE preferable. This would...
