    This is the company which made a big deal of the opening of a parking structure for crying out loud. At one time Disney was the leader in creating things you did not know you wanted till you saw them of course.

    Now Repainting something is front page news in the Orlando Sentinel, How the mighty have fallen under Igor and his band of Pressler disciples. I wonder whether they have leathers emblazoned with 'Sons of Pressler'

    Reminds me a lot of last year around this time, when Disney was running WDW adverts before theatrical showings of 'The Force Awkaens' out here in cinemas located in the Northeastern US.

    I had a good chuckle after seeing the ad, as it made Launch Bay seem like a whole new 'land' to explore and enjoy in 2016.

    Talk about slightly misleading....

    Am I the only one who forgets that Pandora is even being built?

    That's number 13 on the blog and that's not the issue, as you already know.

    Perhaps the blog's author should've changed the post to focus solely on Pandora/Avatarland and talked about 17 neat things to see in that land. Instead she tried to convince us that visiting a gift shop, restaurant, or attending a SWL announcement was a great reason to visit the parks.

    Just got an email. 17 intriguing players to watch in MLB this year. Garbage list. The commissioner really needs to put an end to this. There was barely 2-3 players that were really worth watching...

    Well, yes, but I was more alluding to the fact that it was only 17 this year because it's 2017 and the 2020 would undoubtedly see 20.

    I picture them all wearing matching denim jackets with "Mondays Suck" bedazzled on the back

    Hah no I'm included in that, too. Pandora was announced in 2011. 2011. As in 6 years ago, technically more like 5 and some months to be fair. I get that these things take time, but that's a long time. I tend to kind of tune out to the details of construction until it's close to opening. Too much to keep up with for too long. Plus we don't spend an exorbitant amount of time at AK so it's not always on my mind. Should be amazing when it does open though which is exciting.

    I think people misunderstand Iger. He is a quality not quantity guy. I would rather have a few good attractions open each year rather than crappy expansions wasting space. If they closed Cars Land y'all would be angry. I bet in a couple years when SWL does open you guys will completely change your minds. I love the way that the parks are heading more towards quality not quantity additions. The occasional cool addition like the muppet thing at MK was great. Frozen is a success and a badass ride way better than antique Nordstrum. This forum is so opposed to change its ridiculous. If DLR was so good why isn't it the number one tourist destination? WDW is unequivocally the best vacation spot. I am an AP and go every week because it's so fun. I can't stand how negative this forum is however. This is a f*cking Disney forum and all they do is take steamy one on everything Disney does... Lol

    If you don't like it, why do you come back then? The people who complain that the forums are too negative are more annoying than the people who are negative. Not to sound rude but it's a two way street. Since when does being cautious about praising Disney define negativity? It's not hard to see why people are so critical when you look at their track record the past decade. Like many others have said in the past, this is a forum of very passionate Disney fans. We only criticize, critique and analyze so harshly because we care so deeply. If you are looking for a place to gush about everything Disney does, sorry to say but this is not the place. Who would even want to visit a site like that? Can you imagine how boring that would be?

    Tim - "Have you SEEN those slick new cabanas?!?"
    Bob - "YEAH MAN they are TOTALLY sweet, I can't believe they only cost $700!!"
    Tim - "Right?!? Disney is so generous offering us so many options to enhance our visits!"
    Bob - "Precisely! I'm glad they hiked up the ticket prices, I think they deserve it for all of the creative options they gave us this year!!"
