So what will this do for the 50th? And can we get the old tomorrow land sign back ??"Powell’s sudden departure had many speculating that she was leaving the company after lackluster attendance at Disney’s new Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland and Disney World. Chapek called the reports “erroneous.”
“I will tell you that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has exceeded every expectation we’ve had,” Chapek said. “There is no there there to this being anything but a runaway success.”
OK Bob, if you say
True. I can think of other memories from DLR he could improve at WDW. Fantasmic being one of them.According to my logic, if Josh loves paint the night, he will feel home sick so then he will try to drag paint the night to Orlando... Basically.. Paint the night coming to WDW confirmed!!!
Follow the money...your talking about a 12-18 month launch point.Not necessarily.... he just led Disneyland through the project stardust. Could be they want to make WDW sparkle before the 50....

If Fantasmic! does finally get its long awaited refurb/reimagining, I hope it's not a plain cut copy of DL F! 2.0.Seriously, the Maleficent Dragon deserves a new look. I'm surprised she still looks like this for 21 years!
Not his call...like at all.D’Amaro has certainly had his fair share of exposure to the Florida operation. In addition to VP of AK, he led all resorts and ... WDW transportation.
He oversaw monorails, watercraft, buses and parking - and knows the system intimately.
So the serious lobbying for new monorails begins ... now.
Didn’t say it was. But thanks.Not his call...like at all.
This made me laugh. First time I've heard that comparison but it works -- Chappy definitely has the same look!Looking at all the movement of the soldiers that run the parks and resorts and Kojak's statement that SW is going well, and Powell being the sacrificial lamb to take the fall one must ponder... Telly Savalas's twin brother ....
I really wouldn't know specifics other than WDW's needs an upgrade.If Fantasmic! does finally get its long awaited refurb/reimagining, I hope it's not a plain cut copy of DL F! 2.0.
Make ours unique! Swap out Pocahontas for Moana, upgrade our dragon, add dancing WoC-style fountains, reducing the bubble sequence in general.
Upgrade the pyro (or keep as is), don't downgrade it. Don't reduce the number of characters in the boat/finale. Don't change the tempo of the music. Don't put in something weird like Pirates. All of these were things that I didn't really like with DL's reimagining.
I really hold Fantasmic dear to my heart as it was the first show in WDW that made me believe in Disney magic as a child. I just hope they carry it over to any refurb they do to it..
