So on a side note out of Anaheim rumour mill. The re theme may be a little longer off than planned. As May not even start at either park untill 24. If that’s the case. There is time to stop it all together. The more time goes by. The more time common sense may enter the fools head that came up with the idea to begin with. This is like the re theme no one ask for or wants.

Delays aren't all that surprising, but there is no conceivable way for Disney to cancel the retheme at this stage. The optics of such a move would be beyond terrible for the company.

And the optics for removing it can be argued by some & many that its just as terrible… figured you were able to voice your opinion. I should be able to voice mine. But im not sure how either of our comments have anything to do with the actual ride beyond a delay?

Just out of curiosity where are you hearing this from? Not doubting you per se just seems like an odd choice to start with given the needed work to the surrounding area thematically.

Only reasons I can speculate of why they’d prioritize WDW over DL is: 1) TDO’s desire to dump/replace some of these AAs for more cost efficiency purposes which have less historical connection than the AS originals; 2) TDO feels the need to get a new attraction up soon by late summer/Fall 2024 coinciding with potential soft opening of EU.

The sad part is this would be right up Disney's alley. Only Disney would be dumb enough and arrogant enough to try and play this re-skin as something to compete with a whole new park. And at this point, it's a good possibility. Because at the pace that Disney does anything, the re-skin is about all they could have ready by the time Epic U opens.

I have an old military friend that works in Burbank. And has so since 1993….So that’s as far as I’ll go…..but make no mistake. There is major pushback to this re theme. It’s not just unpopular with Disney fans. But also white collar people with some power. Amd literally 99% of Disney parks employees. I guess I should have said Burbank. But some people don’t know that’s where Disney is headquartered. So i always say. Anaheim.

The retheme is happening. Accept it and move on.

Hopefully delays are to make it a worthwhile attraction. I could definitely see the original proposal maybe being weak or underwhelming and now with time and clarity they are doubling down to make it worth it. I hope they understand they can’t just “over lay” it.

we have been told countless times the original proposal was from years ago... how could that be underwhelming ;)

Lol. Not this again... someone always pops up eventually "there is still time to cancel".

Disney is not cancelling this. They've released an opening time frame, they will have more details at D23. Move on.

If there are delays, there are delays. But this is coming.
I'm hearing that the impending heat death of the universe might be a cause for them to skip the retheme.

Until that shovel hits the dirt, all of that means little.

MK Theater, Spaceship earth, Mary poppins, Festival pavilion, Avengers campus, etc
Had dates for those too and announcements at D23.

And for those that say the optics would be awful if they made that decision- has no one paid attention to disney optics the past 2 years? They make all sides mad constantly and can please no one. Their optics have been a dumpster fire. What’s another piece of wood in the pile?

Not saying the merry go round of “this is why it shouldn’t happen” should continue. That horse has been beaten to death.

Truthfully, this thread should just be locked until something new is announced because the round and round “it’s happening, move on” folk vs the “this is a bad decision” folk is getting beyond long in the tooth.
