They've released information about their Free Dining promotion for this year. Instead of doing it Oct-Dec like they usually do, they're doing it July-September. Apparently, they're expecting a crush of people for the Galaxy's Edge opening, which makes me think it'll be open in November. I wonder if they'll end up keeping the park open for 24 hour stretches like they did waaaaay back when Star Tours first premiered.
I gambled and booked a stay for the second week of December. Fingers crossed.

I think there's a gay couple that shows up every now and again with Josh and Taylor. I don't think they're vloggers, and they're not entirely forthcoming that they're a couple, but they have matching wedding rings.
I also randomly happened upon the vlog of a twinky stew whose channel is LifeByFrancesco. He's basic and kind of dim-witted, but likable and with a cute l'il lisp. Had a hot boyfriend as well.

There's also Adam Hatten, who is also British. He's actually in the UK, but goes to Orlando a few times a year. He travels with other Disney Gays, although many of them are not so cute. He is doing a series right now with another guy who may or may not be his boyfriend. He keeps buying the guy presents and there was a moment after they watched the new nighttime show at Universal, it looked like they were about to kiss.

R27 I know who you're talking about. They do show up occasionally as friends but they're clearly a couple. Nice but on the quiet side. The there's the young guy who has his own vlog who's always by himself but recently went to Aulani with a guy so even when he dedicated a show to questions about himself he kind of said he's not currently seeing anyone. Maybe his name is Michael Kay. I assume he is gay. Very few have personalities that I want to see repeatedly. I liked Tim Tracker but he ruined himself with tatts.
And Justin Scarred is completely bouncing off the walls bonkers. Also he might be gay. Though I'm not sure. As he's been married, has a kid, and is always with a young woman. Still he pings and seems to have deeply rooted emotional problems he's always so frantic and can't manage to calm down for a second..
Oyby I find very handsome with a great head of hair he's always putting his fingers through but he's straight and can be exhausting.

God, he's so stupid. I don't have a problem with the tatts, but watching his videos, it's fun to count how many things he gets wrong.
He did a video last year for the Epcot Festival of the Arts, and they have these big backdrops of famous paintings that you can pose in. He showed us "Venus de Milo" (it was "Birth of Venus"), "Washington Crossing the Potomac," and "The Screamer"

Live from Animal Kingdom. I got here an hour before the park opened to get a shot at Avatar without much of a wait. It was probably 20 minutes, and absolutely worth getting up early. Expedition Everest is done.

|by That ass... 🤣😝||reply 53||01/31/2019|
I kept missing Anakin. I saw Phasma about 12 times, tho.
And now I sit waiting at MCO to return to my humdrum life.
I managed all four parks in a three-night stay. I haven't been to Epcot and DHS in close to 30 years, to MK since about 1994, and I've never been to AK. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Test Track, Soarin', Frozen Ever After, Tower of Terror, all of Toy Story Land (and of course, all of AK) were new to me. I went to Epcot the first night after I checked in. Managed to do everything I wanted to do, including Drinking Around the World. Doing Test Track after two margaritas, a Vodka Rossini, and one of those Grand Marnier slushes really blew my wig back. Frozen Ever After is...something I experienced. I think I would have liked Soarin' more if I hadn't been quite so intoxicated. And I got Spaceship Earth and Listen to the Land, the last vestiges of the nerdy park I loved as a kid. IllumiNations was the only nightime show I lasted for, and since it's the first and last time I'll get to see it, I'm glad I did.
I thought I was crazy going to AK for rope drop, but it was worth it. Avatar was amazing. Honestly, AK may actually have eclipsed Epcot in my heart. When I did the safari, I'm fairly certain the driver was Honey Badger Russell under a pseudonym.
AK rope drop went so well, I did it again at MK for Mine Train. It was fine, but honestly wasn't worth the wait times it usually gets. It was cold, so I kept looking for inside things between FastPasses. I sat through the Tiki Room (so cheesy and I love it) and...ugh, Carousel of Progress (again, it was warm). I had wanted to stay for the fireworks, and I ended up peacing out early because I'd hit all the roller coasters, plus Pirates, plus Haunted Mansion. The only thing I missed was the Beauty and the Beast restaurant, because you either need to wait standby or make reservations, even for lunch when it's not sit-down. Too cold to wait outside for it.
My late flight gave me the final opportunity to rope drop at DHS. Again, Slinky Dog Dash is fine, REALLY not worth the waits it gets. I thought I would loathe Tower of Terror because I hate those drop-tower rides, but I loved it so much I ended up doing it two more times. Star Tours is much improved since it got its makeover. Although I'm sure it's on its way out because of Galaxy's Edge.

R54 Looks like you didn't get to Winnie the Pooh which is just as well as it is a tragedy they dumped Mr Toad for this piece of insipid crap.
No Expedition Everest? That certainly is a major ride in AK. Enormous fun. Looks like you didn't do Rivers of Light either. Nice but no big deal.
And no Impressions of France? One of my very favorites in all of WDW. Slightly cut now which I was expecting. No more close up of the guy in the speedo in the Riviera section. Fine for the 80s but now it would be obscene. In fact I think it lasted at least until 2010.
You missed the revamping of the Tiki Room which was so horrific everyone and I mean EVERYONE hated it. It was a real doozy. One of those you had to see it to disbelieve it. Even nuns were saying 'what the fuck?!!' So they went back to the original just cutting the Offenbach Barcarole.

Wasn't for lack of trying. I got a few cast members hitting me up on Scruff, but that was too weird. Mostly it was guys who were there with their hags or boyfriends.
[quote]No Expedition Everest? That certainly is a major ride in AK. Enormous fun. Looks like you didn't do Rivers of Light either. Nice but no big deal.
No, I did Everest twice, Disco Yeti and all. The Single Rider Line was my friend. I wanted to do Rivers of Light, but I was really spent by about 4:30, and ended up going to Disney Springs for dinner. I think if I'd been able to snag a last-minute FastPass for Avatar (which apparently happens sometimes with single riders) I would have stayed because I did really want to see Pandora at night.

D-Luxe Burger. I had the Quick Service plan, and they had a paleo-friendly option. Although at other places that wrap a burger in lettuce, it's usually a leaf or two. This was shoved between two halves on an entire head. Tasty, tho. I also walked around World of Disney. I kind swore that I wasn't going to buy any merchandise, but they had a baseball cap that was kind of tasteful. Although had I known how much I was going to love Tower of Terror, I'd have held off and bought something there.
[quote]And before Judi Dench it was Jeremy Irons. Walter was a very long time ago. And rumor has it that Spaceship Earth might be closing for two years which has people freaking out.
Oh I knew about the Irons age. I think they changed it around the time Lion King was released. I think they confirmed it's closing in 2020 and probably not reopening until the Epcot 40th in 2022. I just hope they're not going to change it into another IP-based ride. I mean, I don't mind those as much as the purists--I would fully support adding Inside Out to Journey into Imagination, because the current incarnation is an abomination--but I need them to keep some small part of the original concept.
Actually, a lot of the rides looked like they need some TLC. I could tell they've tweaked the Haunted Mansion, because the Bride and Madam Leota looked like digital projections and I loved the animated hitchhiking ghosts, but the rest of it seemed darker than I remembered, like they were trying to hide things.
|by That ass... 🤣😝||reply 63||02/01/2019|
Speaking of that, Space and Big Thunder Mountains REALLY need to be re-tracked. I hope they're not too focused on the Tron coaster to do that before the 50th, but I'm not sure how much time it would take.
In all honesty, the thing that impressed me the most was the theming for Africa and India. I loved all the street performers in Africa.

I visited all four parks over a decade ago. I'll visit Disneyland, however, when Star Wars opens, but not WDW until they open something new that's big (i.e. another park, even another water park, vs. the Fantasia Gardens & Miniature Golf).
They're due for both — new water park, new theme park. I think.
|by That ass... 🤣😝||reply 65||02/01/2019|
Any new parks in Orlando are a long, long way off. If they didn't do it for Star Wars, they probably won't do it for anything else. Maybe Marvel, if they ever buy out the Universal contract.
The only reason that DHS and AK exist is because Michael Eisner wanted to box in more tourists. A movie-themed park to compete with Universal Orlando, and an animal park to compete with Busch Gardens Tampa. Even DCA was a California-themed park to compete with California.

R66, surely another water park. The last one, Blizzard Beach, opened in 1995.
Volcano Bay at Universal (2017) looks very impressive, but of course it's missing Disney's magic theming. Blizzard Beach is brilliant.
I want Disney (and Universal) to be so compelling in Orlando that it destroys SeaWorld's operations there (in that no one will leave the resorts).

I was envying Shanghai Disneyland, given the scale of the park and its newer attractions, but then I learned how shitty it is on the ground (bad manners). DisneySea is tops for me among the parks (at least from what I've seen on YouTube). The new Frozen land, which they're building now, looks great.

I wish all the tourists, American and otherwise, at WDW were as polite as the Japanese ones are. I found a lot of people's line etiquette horrifying. And apparently, there's been an epidemic of people in scooters banging into people. I had my toes run over once or twice.

I remember was Space Mountain was smooth you felt like you were gliding and zipping all over the place and with the other rockets with their phosphorescent strip speeding by and over you it was such an exhilarating experience. Now you just get jostled and banged around in the dark. Getting rid of the lighting on the other rockets was truly as stupid as ruining the People mover in Disneyland. You can't even believe executives can be so incompetent like the revamped Tiki Room.
Closing Spaceship Earth the symbol that represents and introduces you to Epcot for two years is another idiocy that defies belief.

They dumped a bunch if info about Galaxy's Edge and did a press event where they showed some stuff off.
They're going to be using the same hyper-advanced animatronics that we saw on the Japanese Beauty and the Beast ride, and I believe also the Shaman on Na'Vi River Journey. Since this isn't cartoony like BatB or a complete alien like the Shaman, I would argue it's the most human-like of the ones we've seen.

It's partly that, but the stuff with Hong Kong Disneyland is hilarious. Nothing went right.

They're attempting to get the Skyliner operating in time for the Galaxy's Edge opening. In terms of the number of people it's going to carry, it's the equivalent of adding 30 buses per hour,
They seem to be focusing on getting all of Galaxy's Edge open as soon as possible. They just announced that they've pushed Runaway Railway back to 2020, I assume because they want to focus everything on Rise of the Resistance. And the staged opening probably also makes it less imperative that they have something else to help disperse the crowds.

We got free dining in July, so we’re thinking Disney noticed a lack of summer bookings and is trying to fill rooms. We got 7 days at Caribbean Beach so fingers crossed the resort construction is done and the parks aren’t crowded as folks wait for Star Wars. So excited!

Caribbean Beach is finished, and apparently looks great.
I was thinking about adding a day to our December stay, and everything Value and Moderate looks booked up. I'm trying to adjust expectations accordingly, and accepting that I'm going to end up paying out the ass for Early Morning Magic if I want some decent quiet time. I was going to do the Very Merry Christmas Party, but I'm not sure I want to pay for both.

The Star Wars attraction looks like it will be amazing. I saw part of the model in the park. Eventually Disney will have a Star Wars hotel in the park, allowing you the full immersive experience (like sleeping in a space ship) etc.
The place will be a madhouse soon

Hollywood Studios is the weakest of all the Disney Parks so it’s great that it will soon have Galaxy’s Edge. In fact, Disney is already emphasizing Star Wars throughout this park—to compete with the success of Universal’s Harry Potter

Rack rate for a standard room at Aulani is $500 a night. That's basically a room at one of the Deluxe Resorts. Even the Vero Beach and Hilton Head resorts, which offer a lot less, have a pretty hefty Disney Tax.
I would assume that, just like most influencers, Disney comped his stay.

Speaking of incredibly expensive Disney experiences, they've finally started to make headway on the Star Wars hotel. I get that it's basically going to be basically a cruise on land, they've got to at least be charging $3K for a two-three day experience, probably plus tickets and food.

Maybe the Wilderness Lodge is some where in the 400-500 range but I think the Poly and Floridian are a couple of hundred more.

For the value season at least, the Poly and the Grand Floridian are about $50 more, and most of the other ones are about $50 less. Boardwalk is pretty much exactly the same, though.
I don't know what the season for Hawaii is, so I'm not sure if this is apples to apples.

No fast passes in Disney World for GE. People are going to spend all day long on lines. They'll have to close it early in the day to avoid wall to wall people. Disney is warning people just because you have tickets to Hollywood Studios it in no way guarantees you entrance to GE. I was in DW early in the month. I think a lot of people will be going before it opens just to avoid all the extra crowds. If you have no interest in Star Wars it's worth it to visit before then. Just have tons of cash. Or credits cards with plenty of available credit.

He's awful. If the pitch of his voice gets any higher when he's queening, only dogs will hear it. He's discussed his mental difficulty with crowds, but I think he must have some kind of physical problem as well since he starts his day in a park late and is exhausted by the afternoon. I go from rope drop to park close non-stop with no issues and I'm 30 years older. I feel sorry for anyone he travels with, because he's obsessive and an insufferable control freak. He will whine and demand that those with him do what he wants to do, which are things he obsessively does over and over. And his friends lose park time since Adam has to go back to the room to chill because he's worn out after a few hours. I don't know if it's some of ADD, but he can't stay in one park ever for a full day, which I also find annoying.

Apparently, the fourth gate at Universal is going to be called Fantastic Worlds. If rumors are to be believed, each of the worlds are going to be self-contained, like Pandora, Galaxy's Edge, or Diagon Alley. They'll branch off a central hub that's more like CityWalk, and to enter the individual areas, you'll scan your ticket first. You apparently won't need a ticket to get into the hub.
The worlds they're using are likely another Harry Potter land (this one set at the Ministry of Magic during the Fantastic Beasts era), a Nintendo world, a Dark Universe world (finally, a GOOD idea for those properties), How to Train Your Dragon. They're additionally borrowing from Tokyo DisneySea's Hotel MiraCosta and putting a hotel inside the park.

Just got back. We stayed at the dolphin - on prop but not a Disney hotel. It was still over 2000 for just the hotel. The nice thing is we walked to Epcot and DHS. The Magic Kingdom? Get a Lyft. THey drop you off right at the park entrance. The TTA is under construction so you have to walk a mile even if you get a tram JUST to get to the monorail or boat. Parking is 25 a day at any park. The Lyft to the park was 9.24 and my driver was a smoking hot Latino who I flirted with the entire ride (and got his number lol). The parks are crowded in the summer. It was ungodly hot and rained, torrential rains for hours. We actually had a tornado warning one day. Since we booked a good neighbor hotel we could book our fast passes 60 days in advance so we got to ride everything we wanted even flights of passage. We stayed to see illuminations since it is going away and yeah, it should. Worst of the fireworks. One thing I noticed is there are really two Disneys now. One for the middle class and one for the rich. I saw a bunch of VIP tours of Disney with families (mostly foreign). Affordable food options are horrible and very expensive. The better dining in parks is insane in price. We ate at Tiffins in the Animal Kingdom. dinner for two was 200 plus tip. We ate at Coral Reef in Epcot, the food was awful. Even with the Prix Fix menu, we paid close to 200. Quick service was no better. A typical sanwich, fries, drink combo for two was close to 30-40 dollars. Sodas, bottled water in park was 5 a piece I think?

Damn. I'm much more of a Halloween person, so it's kind of a bummer that it's not great.
They still do the Extra Magic Hours for on-site guests, although I'm sure that's been pared back with the hard ticket stuff. And Early Morning Magic, which I guess is only for Fantasyland and Toy Story Land (although they'll offer it for Galaxy's Edge soon--starting at 6AM!). That at least includes breakfast.
We have the dining plan for our trip. It just made sense, because we're planning on several fancy dinners, and that has to come out cheaper. I mean, we'll likely only eat two meals a day, so the two-credit thing is fine.

It’s all about what you’re used to, but after years of Disneyland, I was a little disappointed by WDW. World Showcase and Pandora were great, but most of the rides found at both parks are better at DL. And DL is much warmer—it’s smaller and feels like a jewel. DW was very large and impersonal, and it felt corporate.
|by That ass... 🤣😝||reply 181||07/01/2019|
I can see the corporate bean counting more blatantly at WDW. But it's also their crown jewel (I mean, Disneyland is the more pure of heart, obviously), and Epcot was the best thing ever for a nerdy kid (I know, almost all of that is gone now, RIP Horizons).
Also, at present, DCA doesn't really appeal to me, particularly with their latest innovation just slapping a Pixar facade on the old Paradise Pier. I'll get there, but will probably wait for Avengers Land.

Before anyone makes the joke, this was not anything dedicated to Gaston being a powerbottom for Flynn Ryder. It is/was a YouTube channel of a former WDW employee who started doing urban exploration around the parks. Not content to break Disney rules, he decided to start breaking actual laws as well. Last year, someone stole clothes off of Buzzy, the animatronic from Cranium Command that was still intact behind a wall in the Wonders of Life. BackDoor guy ended up being arrested for it after some tweets lead to them serving him with a search warrant. While they were executing the warrant, they also found that he'd stolen things from Haunted Mansion as well. He was apparently also an asshole, which has lead to a bunch of schadenfreude among the Disney nuts.
The truly interesting part is that it came out that at some point, the ENTIRE Buzzy animatronic had been stolen as well. They haven't charged this dude with the crime, but I have no idea how you would pull that off.

I think it was bold and very cool, but it seems like more people want ease and familiarity.
Smuggler’s Run, though....what were they thinking? Four of the six positions involve staring at buttons and waiting for them to light up so you can press them. It’s almost shockingly misguided, even if the design is amazing.

Straight Disney vlogger JoJo, who is about to end his DCP, discusses his role as a custodian at WDW. He's cute so he has some gay followers who I believe want to make out with him or at least get into his pants. His multi-racial ethnic heritage is a good looking mix of French Canadian and St. Vincent islander. Subscribe.

"Pocahontas" had the bad luck to be the Disney film directly following "The Lion King" which was a massive, massive hit. So no matter what it pulled in at the box office, it was bound to be seen as a disappointing take.
"Mulan," on the other hand, seems to have grown in popularity since it was released.

Pocahontas did 346 million Box office, Little Mermaid - 233 million, Mulan - 304 million. There are numerous Little Mermaid rides and shows at Disney, not so much for Mulan and Pocahontas.

The Halloween pass and the after Noon tickets show that Disney has become desperate, although not desperate enough yet to roll back regular ticket prices. We finally have reached the upper limit of what regular people can pay. It also shows that the profit is in getting people into the park one way or another and buying overpriced food and merchandise there.

r233 not really - they are just trying to create timed entry into the park. First step was the 25% price hike on annual passes. Disney found out too many people were taking advantage of the perks and did a major price increase. Now they are offering mid day passes, after hours passes, annual passes to events only - Next thing you know they will have it all set up like Galaxy;s Edge in CA. You can come for 4 hours, then you have to leave.

The first kind-of announcement for WDW at D23 is a "water maze" with some Moana elements. That corner of Future World looks like it's going to be themed to the environment, with both the Land and the Seas, so it fits. Honestly, I think it's pretty cool.
They've also released a bunch of frankly AWESOME posters featuring past, present, and future attractions. I'd purchase the Horizons one.

Uhhhhhh, so I got an annual passport for Disneyland yesterday after having not been to the park in over five years. There were plenty of new things, but overall a familiar experience and I'm so glad I got the pass!
Tower of Terror was my favorite ride in California Adventure, and I've gotta say that the Mission: BREAKOUT reimagining thrilled me. I was relatively cynical going in, but I thought they put enough life and personality into the ride that it justified its existence. Also, the use of music and reprogrammed drop sequences really add to the experience.
I remember seeing previews of Mickey's PhilarMagic as a kid back in the early 00s and, as a Californian, feeling so envious for those who were able to see it. We never really had the money to vacation when I was young. I was surprised to find out that it's also at California Adventure now! I gotta say, I loved it. Completely lived up to all the expectations 12 year old me had.
Galaxy's Edge is cool. It's... cool. It seems relatively small now, but it has so much potential. I thought Smuggler's Run was a chaotic experience. I went on as a single rider and was given the role of engineer which had me frantically pressing buttons to my left as I tried to see what was happen on a pretty dimly lit and obstructive screen. That coupled with the simulation of it all had me wondering what the fuck was going on. We needed to steal some fuel with harpoons? I don't know. The overall idea of an interactive Star Tours is cool, but I thought the execution was lacking, though I hear it's a much more fulfilling experience if you're not the engineer, so I'll have to try another role next time I go.
I thought the blue milk was surprisingly delicious and the ships they've got parked across the land are fucking incredible. It's definitely early days for the experience, but I think they'll only improve.
It was really cool to go back to a place I've been familiar with my whole life, but after such a significant break. Can't wait to go back sometime in January. Hopefully when the holiday crowds die down.

Yup! Pointing out studio head corruption is ultimately a fruitless exercise. I mean, one can appreciate Disneyland while at the same time admitting the corporation's serious faults. Part of growing older, for me, has been realizing how many things you either love or depend on in some way are tainted either ethically or morally. It's like that with most things in life. Playing the comparison game seems disingenuous. Here, watch me be disingenuous:
D. W. Griffith, one of the founders of United Artists, was also responsible for putting the profoundly racist Birth of a Nation into the world, so Disney wasn't the only artist putting controversial, yet undoubtedly influential work out there.
But who cares? Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's a great film despite the other film its studio creator made. I think we can be more intellectually nuanced about these things. Or not. KNIVES OUT! FUCK YOU! I'M BETTER! YOU SUCK!
