I'm going to be skeptical on this, but man would I be excited if it's true.
No clue, we're six years out. Six *months* before Frozen came out, I'm sure the response would of been, "Eh, we'll probably have one or two people from Frozen at the Studios for like a month or so." And look what happened.Also have there been any rumors for new character meet and greets for the 50th Anniversary or in the future?
BTW.... If you would like to build your own drum like that, look up SuperNight 5050 LED waterproof RGB on amazon... Then build a round drum out of scrap wood... There are some other RGB LEDs you could use to make it an exact copy....but it's not to difficult... Also grab a bluetooth speaker and your ipod with your tune on it...Be glad PTN didn't have the show stop like Hong Kong did.
However I wished they used the soundtrack that was heard for it's behind the scenes video for the "Drum" float that can be heard at 0:40 - 0:59 and again at 1:15 in the video. Because that remix of the MSEP sounded better than the final version.
Between a half-assed refurbishment that did extend the lifespan of the tracks in 2009 and the addition of in-flight SFX in 2011, I doubt that will happen. Although if the ride enters emergency refurbishment (like Disneyland) I'm gonna be pretty ****ed at TDO for letting an attraction get so decrepit.Here's to hoping for a brand new track with some cool onboard audio for Space Mountain!
the confusion is always because the name of the movie is "Pete's Dragon".Pete is the kid. Elliot is the dragon.
They'll become relevant just in time to start fading out of existence again.the confusion is always because the name of the movie is "Pete's Dragon".
ALSO.. its my imagination or they are doing a film of them in 2016??
and with Karl Urban and Robert Redford?
I cant just imagine Karl Urban doing his badass impression of Judge Dredd when confronting Ellion (lol)
Interesting...hm.You can be at least a little excited.
While I agree with this, I'm willing to bet that WDW doesn't want to pay to maintain two sets of floats. Last time they had a pair of fleets onsite, Spectro got destroyed (although they weren't exactly trying to preserve it).I do think there is merit in rotating the parades, perhaps run MSEP a few nights a week and a different parade on others.
Splash and Thunder aren't going anywhere. Thunder should get better still.Interesting...hm.
Well besides the speculation of whether this could happen or not, the end result's quality will depend on the budget and which creatives are involved.
My biggest fear is what we could potentially lose in the process, depending on what they do to the lands. Disney has developed an unfortunate habit of closing quality classic rides and finding ways to screw them up. Instead of actually expanding onto new land. There's substantial unused space to expand both Frontierland and Tomorrowland without closing anything. It would not be a happy day if either Splash Mountain or Big Thunder were to close. But considering their massive popularity,one would think they'd probably safe (unless they're sick of paying to maintain a ride on the scale of Splash anymore). Hopefully whatever is planned is respectful to the land's integrity and doesn't replace anything good with inferior attractions.
Back in 2012 there WAS a thread about a potential expansion for Frontierland, whylightbulb made the thread and it was in regards to resurrecting ideas from Western River Expedition. It involved using a chunk of land above the Haunted Mansion and Small World show buildings, mildly altering the northern section of Tom Sawyer's Island apparently (though it possibly involved the permanent docking of the Riverboat). The project never seemed to have gotten anywhere and we all basically forgot it, but here's the discussion (don't know if it's still relevant given these new 50th anniversary rumors)-
Tomorrowland needs a lot of work, there's both a ton of expansion land to work with there AND existing crap that needs to go and wouldn't be missed by most (Stitch and Monsters). But i'd not wish to lose the Peoplemover or Carousel of Progress. WDW is the only place you can still experience either one of these attractions. Enhancements would be fantastic, necessary in fact in regards to CoP. But I don't want to see either removed. Space Mountain i'm sure is staying, it's an immensely popular ride and a classic that originated at WDW. Though a good rebuild and enhancements to bring it up to standards with other versions i'm guessing is something many creatives are still lobbying for.
Good to know. Splash really doesn't need anything either, just for maintenance crews to keep it in good condition and ensure it never descends into its prior poor condition again.Splash and Thunder aren't going anywhere. Thunder should get better still.
