    HKDL gets new castle, frozen land and marvel land?????

    This is my fav pic to date of the castle - because it takes the original out of equation. source: https://twitter.com/hkdl_of_fantasy Supermodel proportions.

    Tokyo Disneyland Resort Expansion

    Lots of notable pics on the TDL expansion from Japanese twitter today: https://twitter.com/minnie_level_X Here are a few: Overall State: Knew this was going to be an issue from the Model release long ago: B&B showbuilding gets the "Go-Away-Green" Treatment in Toontown: Painted flat(ish)...

    Tokyo Disneyland Resort Expansion

    ^ Agreed. I'm fine with the TDL Hotel, but it doesn't have the elegant proportions nor the restraint that the DLP hotel/Grand Floridian (original version) have and is somewhat clunky and overbearing in its (McMansionish) application of ornament. Disney's "Mictorian" Hotels are inspired by...

    Tokyo Disneyland Resort Expansion

    The execution of the themed hotel will be critical to this land (as will blocking out the midrise unthemed hotels which loom nearby). I don't have a ton of confidence that Iger's Disney has the ability/will to design & build a themed resort hotel that is architecturally worthy of being onstage...

    Tokyo Disneyland Resort Expansion

    Pics of Fantasy Springs expansion model have hit Twitter: It's early, basic foam, so it doesn't overly-impress, but interesting to learn how it will be laid out.

    Ideas for Star Wars shows on Disney+

    While there seems to be a movement towards smaller scale, more intimate series, I'll vote the other way: for an epic, big-budget military/war series. I'd like to see acknowledgement of a much wider war than what we've seen the famous characters involved in on screen to date. Trafalgar in...

    The Mandalorian

    ^I just finished watching Mandalorian, so I'm a bit excited... One of my quibbles with Solo and especially the cinema-style games Jedi: Fallen Order and Battlefront II, is when Aliens speak English, particularly with a Brooklyn accent. It makes it feel more like Star Trek or GotG. Star Wars'...

    The Mandalorian

    There were nameless Extras in Rogue One, with only a few seconds of screentime (such as the Rebel who desperately tried to get the disk through the door as Vader pursued) that I found much more compelling than the combined casts of characters in the Prequel and Abrams Trilogies. A very high...

    HKDL gets new castle, frozen land and marvel land?????

    ^ I'd like to hear your in-person thoughts on it and the change/effect it is having on the park feel and aesthetics? (Safe to assume you've been to HKDL when it had the old castle)

    In certain light it looks like a richer purple. Race/competition is on between the two new disney castles in Asia: https://twitter.com/kyon2purudona

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    Not to dwell too deeply on it, but what makes up Canon SW is fluid (to Lucasfilm) and can be just as fluid and subjective to the audience. I adore Rogue One for many reasons. At the same time I've enjoyed listening to the brilliant Radio Dramatizations produced in association with Lucasfilm...

    Star Wars Ep. 9 Thread

    A nicely cut trailer. I wasn't aware of the leaked Spoiler Outlines mentioned above, so I hope those plot details don't enter this thread. The only moment in the trailer I didn't care for was the C-3PO line, because it felt sappy and designed for marketing. Really liked the OT Star Destroyer...

    Updates to the Seas Pavilion

    The execution is awful, but the IP is poison, as well, IMO. Nemo IP killed Stormchaser at DisneySea in a similar way. The problem is the Nemo IP places the entire feel of the pavilion squarely in the "parents can come along, but this is really aimed at children" category. It would be like...

    The artwork above gives an idea of the Pan area flatride: vehicles moving around a short track. Reminds me of Universal Singapore's Egyptian Jeep ride in scale/type.

    HKDL gets new castle, frozen land and marvel land?????

    I can't help but like it. Its lean massing and proportions make it much more elegant than SDL's fat-bottomed castle, though SDL's surface/material detailing looks more realistic up close. Some of the pics show the four new low turrets and walls in front (black below). This will help with...

    Has Disney Pricing Increases/Atmosphere Cuts Altered YOUR FAMILIES WDW Attendance?

    We're in the "Used to go once a year (in the 80s & 90s)" to "every couple of years" (in the 2000s-2010s) to "do not plan to return". Probably one of the few in that demographic still on this site. The much higher pricing (more importantly: lower value for cost) and general/thorough...
