then diagon alley came, and it was way far than a simple touch... more like a nutbuster hook punch...True story.
When I first went to Hogsmeade (on opening day ) I told a team member that I never thought anyone could touch Disney. And this at a time when I was still on the Pixie Dust and actually really hyped for New Fantasyland
Attending the opening of a park would be a wonderful experience with great stories to tell.Re: Shanghai Disneyland
Landscaping actually appears to finally be going in, temporary construction housing is disappearing.
I agree, it's not going to be finished, but at least I can visualize that it will be relatively presentable now at opening. Painting seems far more than 50% complete...
I'm now going for opening (which was pretty much exactly what I never intended to do), so perhaps I'm just trying to be optimistic. Realistically if 3/4 of Tron, Pirate, Roarin' Mountain and Voyage to the Crystal Grotto are running that's enough.
Even if it's a total disaster, should still be a fun time relaying the stories back here. The rest will just be amusing to exec watch and explore.
I just don't understand what the story for this could possibly be. While riding an old hotel elevator you go to another dimension where you meet the guardians? The ride time is relatively short, especially in DCA, so I don't understand how all of the guardians could possibly have time to shine in this attraction. GOTG should have it's own attraction, and more importantly, TOT deserves to stay how it is.
Nope. Welcome to The Guardians of the Galaxy Tower of Terror. Yes. Really. Yes, Disney wants to destroy (or make over depending on how you look at it) one of its high points of creative product in the last 25 years to tie it to a BRAND that it can't even use to advertise and promote, in Florida that is.
It was getting almost too positive. They had to find a way to upset us somehow.I understand the need to rationalize sometimes when things get bad. But if this re-theme goes through there's no silver lining. You can't say well this would be terrible, I don't support it, but ya know...if it happens it'll be done well so it will work out. If they do this it shows their lack of understanding. Therefore, we should not then trust their judgment on a rush-job re-theme.
It seemed like an enlightenment with a possibly incredible Star Wars land, well-enough TSL, and substantial Pandora. This would show those decisions are mere aberrations and the idiocy that paved the way for Frozenstrom is the true direction of "Parks and Resorts - Orlando Division" oh, sorry, Walt Disney World.
Hopefully logic prevails.
Maybe they'll try to replicate the prison escape sequence? That is the only scene I could imagine working. But they would need to renovate the entire building exterior to make it look like the space prison.Remember that scene in GoT where they all got in an elevator and it feel 13 stories... oh wait, that never happened.
I believe Spirit said that the tower would become the Collector's mansion. So much of the exterior and even a lot of the interior would remain the same. If this happened I feel one of the biggest things would be removing the Hollywood Tower Hotel sign which in that case they can go ahead and remove my heart as well.Maybe they'll try to replicate the prison escape sequence?

Look, I disagree with you most of the time anyways... in this and all other cases you're entitled to your opinion. But you have to recognize this has very little to do with the original source of the IP that the attraction is based on.
If the IP works then the IP works, end of story. In this case the non Disney IP worked better then many of Disney's own IPs ever have. The ride was a thematic masterpiece that had a build up and story that not only complemented the entire area of the park, but a buildup that started the moment you entered the parking lot. For whatever reason people cannot look past the end of their nose and see why this is bad. This is not simply about the IP taking over as the IP itself is not a bad one. (I enjoyed the movie). This is about Disney not understanding the very thing that made them great to begin with, storytelling. No matter how they turn it, Guardians will not fit on Sunset Blvd, and if they have to come up with some twisted lame-@@@ backstory to make it fit then that is the sign. You are damn right people are bent out of shape and any real fan who truly knows what makes Disney special would be as well.As usual, you use my posts as a springboard into a rant that had little to do with the statement I made.
It's simply humorous to note that folks are so bat-crap bent out of shape about a non-Disney IP possibly leaving when most of the same folks spend all their time complaining about outside IP invading WDW.
That is all.
Sprit said that the redo for California is pretty much a done deal. Orlando is a little different and it looks more 50/50 at this point....for now anyway.I think this was asked before, but I believe it wasn't answered. Is it possible that the redo could end up affecting DCA but not make it to DHS?
I think you're wrong. In 1956 Walt Disney presented an episode on his Disneyland TV show entitled "The Plausible Impossible". It's the job of the Disney story tellers to make any and all stories they tell seem to be completely plausible no matter how impossible it might be based upon our knowledge of reality.No matter how they turn it, Guardians will not fit on Sunset Blvd, and if they have to come up with some twisted lame-@@@ backstory to make it fit then that is the sign. Your damn right people are bent out of shape and any real fan who truly knows what makes Disney special would be as well.
