    Even now when I think of IOA, 'The world's most technologically advanced them park' still rings in my head.

    DisneySea was opened 2 years after IOA and I would agree.

    I hope they do something like this for the 3rd dry park. When I saw the construction walls around the Mummy queue, that’s where my mind immediately went.

    They probably have a model built by now, but they won't show it to us :ugh:

    Didn't Jim Hill stumble across the model by accident when visiting Richter's Burger?

    Honestly, with streaming video being so easy to produce online now, there's no reason to build a physical preview center anymore. More people from all over will see online previews of a park than would ever come through a preview center. Much more cost effective too...

    If memory serves me correctly, he was with an Imagineer at the time. His rumours are extremely hit or miss but his history is pretty much spot on.

    Your profile photo gives me a chuckle every time I see it. :lol:
