    Toy Story 4

    Much better than it had any right to be. I was also very surprised by just how funny the film was. I think the humor, along with the new characters kept it from felling like too much of the same. But yeah. No Mas :whiteflag:

    She-Ra Meet & Greet Debuts in Lost Continent

    I ultimately think pulling the plug on LC is gonna reach Kidzone levels of kicking the can down the road, at least with FW coming down like a freight train pretty soon.

    Good QS/Snacks at Disneyland

    If you're not getting Mickey Shaped Beignets, I'm not really sure why you're bothering to go to DL.

    Grand Avenue/Grand Park (Muppets)

    How dare you bump this thread so close to D23 and scare the poop out of me?! :chainsaw: TBH I'd be more upset about losing MV3D than Country Bears.

    Universal Orlando Resort Expansion News (Part 2)

    That area is not close enough to Lost Continent to actually be utilized, has far too many other Back of House Stuff in between, and is directly connected to other Soundstages. It's also important for everyone to keep in mind, that UO is currently bursting at the seams backstage. So anything...

    General Discussion - Hagrid's Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure

    It's particularly disgusting after a nice Florida rain. It's one of the reasons I significantly question the opinion of any one who dares call the queue "amazing" . Other than the Pre show itself and final room, it's boring, loud, and often poorly cooled/ventilated.

    Tangentially, don't you find it a bit odd neither WWoHP land has nothing to do with the new Potter mobile game? Just seems like an odd choice by all parties. Could be some cool unique content. I know it could well happen at some point, but still.

    MIB: Alien Attack Revamp?

    It's safe to assume that things will move ... slowly while we wait for Fantastic Worlds. That's gonna suck up most of the money Comcast will be funneling to UO. But after that.... Also I know this the MIB thread, but rumors of the Mummy's demise have been greatly exaggerated :pew:

    This is a particularly bad example of what happens when different parts of these billion dollar resorts doing a very poor job of communicating and planing together. But when you have basically a different company build it than the ones that have to market it, maintain, and operate it bad things...

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Awesome, I was planning on seeing it again anyway. So this is a good added incentive.

    June 2019 AP Price Increase - WDW

    Yeah 15% or so is nothing to sneeze at. Especially with the crowds during the extra times in Gold, it's hard to say it's worth it.

    Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Disney's Hollywood Studios)

    I'd like to think the Gold Pass is nothing to sneeze at :lol: I mean I get it. There's a metric ton of Gold passes. But this a bit more substantial of a benefit than a festival magnet. Oh well.

    Are we sure they did here? That stuff is usually farmed out by Intamin. Not even close.

    Sometimes I think we forget that these parks are in fact a business. Yes, operationally thing could've gone a bit better the past 5 days. But you can't spend all the money they did and be in TM Previews or Softs for 6 months before you open, or put the whole thing inside a giant bubble.

    They don't HAVE to wait in line. It was made perfectly clear to everyone outside IOA this morning that it would be opening late. I would get it if they didn't announce it, but they did. Not much more they can do. Personally, I agree with what they did if the problem came from running so late...

    Quite bluntly and simply... this would be my response to anyone who looked at what happened yesterday, looked at the weather today, and dares to complain about their time in line today:

    You're skipping the remaining outdoor queue, a small inside line, the pre-show, a hatchery type area with several long switchbacks, and remnants of the caves left from Dragons. Whats left is the lab, a few short caves, and the stables. Some switchbacks in the lab, potentially a lot in the...

    Probably figure MSNBC can run footage from the TODAY/NBC crew and CNN might get different eyeballs?
