    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    I've been following the news on Hong Kong closely. It appears that it's going to get worse for the city of Hong Kong before it gets better. Perhaps much worse, like Tiananmen Square 1989 worse. :oops: Hong Kong Disneyland has already had huge impacts to its attendance and spending as tourism...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    I can top that, as I thought she was alive. @Mickeyboof was kind enough to break the news to me. She passed away early this year a few days short of her 98th birthday. I agree! I am excited for this Railway ride, and it will be tempting to fly out to Florida to ride it in 2020 or '21 if it's...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    My favorite part of that sad tale is how the day before Ms. Powell was fired, Bob Iger had a glowing puff piece written about him in the Sunday New York Times where he gushed that they were looking to promote women executives in all divisions of the company. And then the next morning they fired...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    Valid point on timing. Tourists, bless their little Birnbaum reading hearts, rush to the Falcon ride in the morning to "beat the crowds!", not realizing the wait time will be lower by early afternoon. At 2:15pm its now posted at 35 minutes. I'm not one who thinks Star Wars Land was a total...

    Thank you. The real star is the Disneyland App who is kind enough to offer all those wait times instantly and remotely. And I am still jealous of your avatar! Such a brilliant selection that is.

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    Bingo! That's the real story here. This isn't a thread dedicated to tourists worrying about wait times and dining plans and t-shirt sizes. It's devolved (rather charmingly) into an ongoing discussion of Star Wars Land's faults and successes, the implications of various creative and executive...

    News Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disneyland opening reports/reviews

    Yup! The public is not going crazy for Star Wars Land, on either coast. That is the shocking story of 2019. :oops: Another busy holiday weekend at Disneyland for Veteran's Day! Sunny and beautiful fall weather. The crowds are big, and yet Disneyland's first E Ticket in 25 years has a wait time...

    News Disneyland to give Snow White’s Scary Adventures dark ride a major facelift in 2020

    Okay, you're right again. Even though it's Saturday night, I just need to put down the Chardonnay and focus! :oops: Let's try this... 8 in Anaheim (Snow White, Pinocchio, Mr. Toad, Peter Pan, Alice, Roger Rabbit, Pooh, Monsters Inc.) 4 in Tokyo (Snow White, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Roger Rabbit)...

    Ooh, you're right. Viva la France! 🇫🇷 And with thanks to Tony Baxter. 8 in Anaheim (Snow White, Pinocchio, Mr. Toad, Peter Pan, Alice, Roger Rabbit, Pooh, Monsters Inc.) 4 in Tokyo (Snow White, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Monsters Inc.) 3 in Paris (Pinocchio, Snow White, Peter Pan) 2 in Orlando...

    News Disneyland to give Snow White’s Scary Adventures dark ride a major facelift in 2020

    No, we're not counting DCA's Little Mermaid. Nor are we counting the cloned version they built in Card Walker's Magic Kingdom Park out in the swamp. We're only counting Walt Disney era dark rides; two-to-six passenger vehicles travelling along a little bus-bar ride system in the dark. Usually...

    News Disneyland to give Snow White’s Scary Adventures dark ride a major facelift in 2020

    Thank you, I thought I was the only one who remembered that Disneyland had plans to rehab all the Fantasyland dark rides for the 60th. But Colglazier got cold feet and cut that budget and only did entertainment for the 60th instead. It's hysterical that this minor rehab became a news item in...

    What about "crazemazing?" Is that still en vogue? Here it is in a sentence, used with the appropriate (and mandatory) Millennial Vocal Fry accent;

    Disney donates $5 million to help fund housing for Orange County’s homeless - OCR/SCNG

    And yet, Disney is not the only employer in Anaheim. So why should they be expected to give 5 million here, a million there, another million there, etc. every year for eternity? We know the radical unions like UNITE HERE Local 11 won't donate a dime to anyone except the Union Bosses Hawaii...

    Space 220 Chef steps down weeks before opening

    Don't worry. There are dozens of Lifestyle Bloggers in Orlando who will rush to visit this place, gush over every course, and declare that the entire experience is "AMAZING!", because in 2019 anyone under the age of 35 has no other adjectives to use except the word "amazing". Their vocabulary is...

    Space 220 Chef steps down weeks before opening

    It's a restaurant in a theme park, serving up space-themed fare for tourists. It's not rocket science (pardon the pun). Space 220 will still sell and serve all the various mid-level steak and seafood and pasta dishes they had planned to sell at huge markups, with corn-syrup cocktails and wacky...

    Christmas Time at Disneyland

    I think Nordstrom is the only department store, or anything really, that still waits until the day after Thanksgiving to put up their Christmas decorations. The Nordstrom family has just refused to abandon that tradition, which is what all department stores used to do. It's just so much...
