    Guardians is top 3 in DCA, along with RSR and Soarin'. Soarin' and RSR do much better with young children than GotG, and Soarin' does better with seniors. I'd have to do the math to see which one comes out on top. But they all do well with grade schoolers, teens, young adults, and the "over 30" set.

    Is that much different than Tower of Terror's standings?

    Would you accept a magical bus lane of trees at Disney Springs?

    So here's some of the projections they're doing on DCA's Tower for Monsters After Dark. A good example of using projections to enhance the structure, not at a backdrop for something unrelated.
    They do similar things on the Tree of Life, but anywhere else in WDW?



    Once they have them installed, if they use the projectors in this vein for DHS's Tower, that could be a plus.

    The site that must not be named as an update on the construction of the equipment for this show. Have to say it doesn't look great so far.

    Also this billboard has gone up on Sunset Boulevard. Nice to see references to other parks but does seem slightly odd.

    It certainly looks like a projection platform, very similar to what we have seen on Hollywood Blvd.

    Updated photo from today.

    Christmas stars! I hear "Making Christmas" in my head.

    I know it's October, but I love Christmas! Ho ho ho

    That new projector isn't as distracting now, I don't think.

    Is there a chance it will be seasonal only? It wouldn't be that bad then.
    I don't mind having Boardwalk themed Pixar shops etc., but the whole Boardwalk devoted to Pixar baffles me.

    The park finally has name recognition. The park is actually great now. Why ruin it or get rid of all the iconic things now?

    because paradise pier is a meh land. Let all the carnival rides die and let real, disney quality rides enter. We don't need silly symphony swings, or anything that isn't the three flagships (screamin', fun wheel, and toy story mania) to stay.

    Shouldn't they have left the tinsel stars off the lamp posts until after Oct31?? The rest of the stuff you can't readily see or associate with the Holidays...

    They are up so they can be programmed and tested for use in the new show.

    They add kinetic energy and are no different than Dumbo. Paradise Pier needs some refreshing, but the land is awesome. Yes, the theming should have been higher quality, but that can be adressed as time goes on.

    In the meantime, it boasts a gorgeous outdoor goaster, an appropriately placed TSMM, and a unique land. It also has huge water feature, something lacking from HWS, which boosts its status.

    It isn't for everyone, but the land out of whole is now iconic and it has a great atmosphere for the park. It does need updates on theming quality, and perhaps one or two flat ride replacements, but it is still a great unique land.

    The catch of course is at Disney 'temporary' things become permanent sort of like WW II Quonset Huts that are more permanent than all the rest of the buildings on a US Military base.

    Disney examples being Wand and BAH

    It's ok - I share your unpopular opinion. The Osborne Lights were unnecessary sensory overload. For me seeing something that shouts "LOOK AT HOW MANY LIGHTS I CAN CRAM INTO A SQUARE INCH!!!!" doesn't say Christmas. It says tacky as hell.
