Is it more the idea of attractions like ips being shoved in or is it more that the funding is getting cut. Between this and what seems like problems in tomorrowland it seems like they're cutting budgets again.
For the life of me, I do not understand how investing in the parks is something they are afraid to do. I don't see the reasoning behind significant cuts like those.

They could work on EoE and WOL pavilion without too much impact on guest experience. I'm surprised they haven't brought back to HISTA where Captain EO used to be played.
Hista and eo are examples of why using pop stars in theme parks is shortsighted

While I'm almost certain Toy Story Land won't live up to my expectations I'm sure it will still be enjoyable. I just wonder if fatigue, the old "this again" won't set in by the time the land opens. I haven't been following development, are any E's or D's planned for this land? Do we really need more Toy Story!? I did hear about scaling back... the value engineering. We can see what that did to Pandora. It's good but not great! But then again not all rides need to be mega super thrills.

Star Wars land is the more intriguing land and has a larger fanbase so I'm still hopeful this one will be a big hit with quality rides. It looks like it will be. The jab about a lack of benches: Boy oh boy do I agree with you there. What's up with that? Seems the only place to sit down anymore is in a restaurant.
Have you been to Pandora?

Do you know how easy it is to get a job these days? I understand the sentiment, I used to think that way too but time and experience has shown me how naïve that mindset is.
Um, it's not as hard as it used to be. But it's not like Peter's saying quit and wait around hoping someone else hires you, keep the job while looking for something else ... it's called going to school to better yourself or actually making an effort to find something else. It's not really a naive mindset. I live in a small town and there are a ton of job postings. Tons. Jobs are out there. And especially in the Orlando area. It's called making an effort to better yourself instead of complaining about the job and pay you have. People make themselves feel stuck. I used to feel stuck too.

Personally, if they cut the funding for new attractions but keep the funding for the Central spine, I would consider it a victory. New Attractions can wait for a new management team that understands and appreciates the park for what it is supposed to be.

What are you thinking about when you say it "Used to be". Most entry-level jobs these days are meaningless and you could have a machine do the same thing for a fraction of the price. The era of menial labor is ending. It's a shame American Industry hasn't figured that out yet.

Looks like we might have the first permit for this project. A permit was filed with the South Florida Water Management District today to re-route the canal behind Energy and create two new retention ponds (POND-20 and POND-21). The permit provides the reason for this work as:

"The applicant wishes to reconfigure the existing canal to provide a more-contiguous area for possible future changes to parking capacity and back of house areas. A spur of the existing canal is proposed to be filled so that a more developable area is provided."

It also says:


"The possible future impervious areas were estimated based on manual take-offs of the input received by the applicant. The area where the construction laydown is to be located is assumed to have paved roadways into the area, a number of construction trailers as impervious, and the remainder of area to be gravel."

@Magic Feather @WDW1974 - have you heard anything regarding this area?

I don't think you know what you're talking about. I know it's hard to understand, as I assume you are someone who pays thousands of dollars to meet a college intern in a mouse costume or to see robot pirates on a boat, but it's harder out there for people who don't make the money I assume you make. I don't think you have a grasp on the real world.
