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

    To be clear, the current situation in the Amazon certainly isn't funny, and I don't think anyone's laughing at it. However, I'd say there's some absurd humor in the timing of D23's potential Brazil announcement (which eager Disney fans are tweeting about positively) juxtaposed against a very...

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

    Searched “Epcot Brazil” on Twitter in the hopes of finding something new from D23. Got more than I bargained for! (But yeah, this has been an interesting week for old tweets resurfacing)

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

    Interesting tweet (from before D23 even began) - we're so close! 🙏

    Live Action Mulan in the Works

    Finally saw TLK '19 today, and it pains me to say this (the original Lion King is my favorite Disney movie), but the highlight was probably seeing Mulan's trailer again. Seriously, this looks like a remake that has a reason to exist! I can totally live without Mushu and the songs, although...

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    These aren't live action remakes in a literal, beat-for-beat sense; they're adaptations. Otherwise, Belle wouldn't have had an English accent (or poor autotune), and her dad would've been a bumbling man-child instead of a pensive, articulate clockmaker. Aladdin wouldn't have altered the...

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    I don't really get the furor; we had a black Cinderella over 20 years ago. I also don’t know much about Halle, but that clip of her singing reminded me of Jodi Benson. The youthfulness, the tone—she has the voice. That’s probably Ariel’s most significant trait. Not to mention the fact that...

    Toy Story 4 SPOILER Discussion

    (Moving from the general thread just in case) Yes. We all knew the film was leading to a major parting of ways, but I didn't really feel for anyone as it happened. Woody seemed happy, Bo seemed happy, and the rest of the gang could've used more screen time to really drive home the moment's...

    Toy Story 4 SPOILER Discussion

    Had a feeling going into it that Woody would say goodbye to the group, as Tim Allen had said his final scene with Hanks was an emotional one. It also would've been pretty cynical and depressing for Woody to stick with Bonnie and fade into oblivion again - now that would've been dark. That said...

    Toy Story 4

    Just got out of my screening - liked it, didn't love it. Frankly I'm a little surprised after all the glowing reviews, and the talk of a hyper-emotional ending. It didn't hit me in that way. Totally pleasant experience with beautiful animation and a worthwhile story to tell, but I think TS3...

    Also, Polynesian and Grand Floridian used to feel distinctly spaced out, with a beautiful stretch of white sand beach separating them. The addition of GF’s DVC wing changed the look and feel significantly, and not for the better.

    Avengers 4!

    Got my ticket as well - 6pm in IMAX (not 3D though). April 25th can't get here soon enough!

    The DC Comics Film Thread

    Saw Shazam today at one of the early preview screenings - really enjoyed it! A lot of fun (but still plenty of heart), a solid villain, and some great laughs throughout. Definitely my favorite DC movie of the 3 I've seen, ahead of Aquaman and The Dark Knight. Not that TDK was bad, it just...

    Announcement New dedicated section for 'Evolving Epcot'

    An exciting milestone and one I’ve been eagerly waiting for - thank you!

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    On the bright side, once Galaxy’s Edge and Runaway Railway have opened up, you will be able to get Slinky Dog. 🙌 #blessed

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    I would’ve thought the same, but they’re confident the demand will exist for both soon enough.

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    This is both brazenly confident (in all the crowds that will materialize post-Galaxy’s Edge) and dismissive of those who’ve been loyal to the increasingly overpriced Disney resorts. And frankly, I think Disney knows what they’re doing here; people might be annoyed but they’re still going to...

    More offsite hotels to offer Extra Magic Hours and extended FastPass+ booking window

    This is kind of hilarious, considering Disney’s relationship with Bonnet Creek in the first place. I guess everyone’s friends now! [Colors of the Wind intensifies]

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    It's technically not a tower, but the Villas at GF deserve a shoutout here too. The original resort was inspired by the Hotel del Coronado in San Diego; the new wing was inspired by the boxy starkness of Walmart, which they also have in San Diego. Observe the subtle but complementary...

    News Disney Riviera Resort announced

    I like where you're head's at! Alternatively, maybe they can go ahead and finally build that California Coast-inspired DVC adjacent to AKL. After all, parts of the California Coast share a similar climate with Southern Africa's Western Cape, and there are a few African-inspired restaurants in...

    EPCOT Poll

    I think this is a great point. Given the piecemeal nature of these updates (and Epcot's overall philosophy of distinct pavilions compared to fully immersive lands), all of the changes feel incremental and not necessarily complementing the same vision. Test Track 2.0, CGI Soarin', and Frozen were...
