And then it opens here better than the DHS version, and then all the WDW fanbois will be crying because they have the inferior version yet again....Really looking forward to this...and great, we'll have 2 years of WDW fanbois telling us how bad it sucks before it opens here
There will long, intense arguments about how the slightly different queues make one version vastly superior over the other.And then it opens here better than the DHS version, and then all the WDW fanbois will be crying because they have the inferior version yet again....
I haven't honestly followed the specifics of the GotG coaster with regards to capacity. Maybe one of the WDW insiders can provide that info. But yeah I expect it'll be a clone of that ride system.
Parts of TT would have to close eventually I would assume, don't know if that'll happen before D23 or not. But I expect at least Gag Factory closes sometime this year. So that might be the reason for announcing it now instead of in August.
If their current trend of ctrl+C, ctrl+v when building the same attraction in multiple resorts is any indication, this ride's gonna have almost the exact same facade as Hollywood StudiosSo I wonder if they'll keep the movie theater angle or if they'll remove that aspect entirely and have the façade be a train depot or something similar.
Interesting indeed. I figured this for a D23 announcement.
Well for a 2022 opening that puts demo and construction starting here in the next couple months just like we thought.
My only thought here is that they need to start demo work ASAP, within the next month or two, and you'll be able to see that easily from the Harbor Blvd. sidewalk on the freeway overpass. There will be no way to hide what they are doing months before D23 Expo. So they had to just fess up to what we've all known for a year or so that the Runaway Railway ride from DHS is being cloned for Toontown.I’m surprised they didn’t wait til D23 for this announcement
I will probably jinx us and we'll get the Big One that will close Disneyland for a week, but...And be swallowed by an earthquake...
Pick your favorite Youtuber now, you'll start seeing videos going up this weekend.I took the helpful map @truecoat created and added an X where you'll be able to get a good view of this construction.
The X is the sidewalk on Harbor Blvd. that is part of the freeway overpass. From that elevated sidewalk you get a clear view down into "backstage" Disneyland from there. And I really think this is part of the reason why this non-surprising announcement couldn't wait until D23 Expo, because the demolition and construction was going to be too obvious well before August.

I fully expect bloggers to begin photographing the area from that public vantage point. Thank me later.
“Sunshine State”I will probably jinx us and we'll get the Big One that will close Disneyland for a week, but...
Disneyland has never closed because of an earthquake. Since 1955 there have been a half dozen local moderate quakes, rattling windows and closing some rides for a few hours for inspections. But the park has never closed and the earthquakes over the last 64 years have been confined to a handful of days with a few hours of inconvenience.
Meanwhile, Orlando has some of the most inhospitable weather for at least half the year. This was Magic Kingdom park earlier today.
While this video was taken at Disneyland about 35 minutes ago, at 2:45pm it was 74 degrees with a light sea breeze...
I'll take a moderate earthquake that rattles dishes and windows every 10 years, thank you.
