Is this the person he gave the account to, or the original owner? If it’s the latter, I’m not so sure I buy what he’s saying in that tweet.
It’s him. I’ve seen these blueprints first hand, he ain’t lying

It’s so funny becuase almost all these scenes sound like actual cartoons:

“Mickey and Minnie in Big City Snarl”
“Mickey and Minnie in Carnival Chaos”

Also...if attractions magazine shared them your probably not showing off classified stuff and the like.

Very excited for the attraction, cannot wait they really need to break the silence though...we need tangible something out of Disney’s mouth. That’s the only thing that worries me but we know they are confident in the attraction.

More questions: Waterfall is a show scene I hear is their any kind of controlled descent in the attraction? Like a semi drop? Based on what you have seen how long do you think this attraction would last?

Another question: Is the unload in a different place then the load? Can’t imagine you would see the finale as you are loading.

PS: Sorry for all the questions.
With 15-16 scenes, and assuming they are pretty short, like Spiderman, you are right in the expected 4 minute ride length.

Sorry I thought you were asking what was built in the last 20 years worth the money AND what was lost for it. I’d say losing camp Minnie Mickeys temporary aesthetic was worth pandora since it’s only attraction was moved elsewhere.
But was Pandora worth its price tag? A pretty lame boat ride, and a 4 minute movie you watch on a moving platform on a seat that spreads your legs apart a few times? Oh, and "floating rocks".

For, what, half a billion dollars?

If you describe attractions this way Pirates would be "boatride across sets with a drop" and Forbidden Journey would be "A robot arm swinging you in front of screens and sets". A lot of money goes into theming and it shows, Pandora is incredible themed and does a great work of hiding the showbuilding from within the land (unlike the wizarding world and the showbuilding from forbidden journey as example). Describing Flight of the Passage as a 4 minute movie on a moving platform is a huge understatement.

I mean we all know by now that WDI is incredible inefficient with budgets. But looking at consumer value, the pandora expansion was definitely worth it (especially taking into consideration what it replaced).

Pandora was well worth the cost. Look at the lines for the 2 rides. Look at the Satu'li Canteen and of couse the merchandise. Selling a 6 month supply of Banshees in days. This land was a fantastic investment. Too many people here only talk about the rides and ignore what makes WDW a themepark and not an amusement park. I don't go for the rides but the overall experience and quality.

Like many here, I’ve been assuming there would be some sort of “stepping into the screen” moment in the queue, but I’m beginning to suspect that once you enter the building you’re in the toon, which would make it much easier to clone the structure with minimal changes to parks like DL that lack the studio theme.

I don’t think this is the case. They have mentioned stepping though the screen multiple times. Why install preshow rooms if they aren’t going to actually make you step into the movie?
