Looks cute and again, would be great if something based around this could displace the Nemo musical at Animal Kingdom, ideally along the lines of the Walking with Dinosaurs arena show.
Should we expect it to be almost fully silent? similar to Wall E?

Hurray! When they first briefly discussed the concept years ago this was the Pixar film I was most excited for. Then they actually discussed specifics and showed some art perhaps at D23 2 years ago and it was a big dissapointment in my opinion.

Looks like it really benefited from that major re-tooling if the trailer is any indication, consider me excited once again!

Is it weird that Disney is releasing movies this year closely tied towards some of the weakest areas in WDW? Tomorrowland, Inside Out (WoL/Imagination), now this with Dinoland.

Club 33 seems to be moving forward yet again for WDW. I have no further information at this time. But I have a nagging feeling that they won't be placing this at the MK at all.
Special addition to the Hollywood Brown Derby? or maybe a fully built version of the Carthy Theater?

The ratings from Touring Plans are based on wait times not on attendance. So that may be why it seems that way.

They explain which rides they base their numbers on every day.

So here's what doesnt make any sense to me. If the resort is pulling 25% Peak days on the Yeah, MK is pulling 33% peak crowd.... If the crowds are so batcrazy, WHY are they offering discounts?

I can't reconcile this as its been insane since Memorial Day weekend. Statistically abnormally busy up and over beyond Summer 2013 & 14.

Driving me nuts trying to make any sense of this.... and then the mouse offers those discounts. Ugh.


Are more people staying offsite?

Interesting that even though the dinosaurs are quite cartoony, the terrain features appear to be more realistic than any of their other films.
