If the whole experience is as breathtaking as the AAs are then I 100% agree.
They've made AAs so good that I thought it was a screenz animation when I first saw it.
I've been saving and plotting my future vacations around this. If Spring is the target, assuming Fall/Halloween 2020 is safe enough to plan for?
Be careful with 2020, the Olympics are going to jack rates up for that year.
The only bad news is I’m going in June 2019. Guess I’ll need to book another trip in 2021.
I'm aiming for 2022, so that the Disney Sea expansion is complete and the new hotel is open.
Floored by how good this looks but then again.. I think this will be that park's first real new attraction in over 10 years when it opens so much needed/well deserved.
Yeah, I don't doubt that. My friend initially wanted to go during the Olympics but I'm trying to avoid the summer. I wouldn't say it's a once-in-a-lifetime trip (hopefully), but I've been saving for the worst.
That Belle figure holding the lantern and walking is something else! Good job WDI!
Swing and a miss.
(It’s Garner Holt)
Yeah...no. This trope that Garner Holt does all of Disney's animatronics now is flat-out not true. WDI has been spending big bucks on AA research and this is the product of that investment (as well as many more figures to come). WDI fabricates all of their advanced figures, while Garner usually handles less advanced AAs and animated props. The new A1000-series platform was specifically designed to allow WDI to create extremely advanced AAs for much less money.
Some of the recent animatronics by WDI: Wheezy (TSL), Pandora figures, Shanghai pirates figures (Jack Sparrow x 2, Hammerhead, Davy Jones), Frozen Ever After figures, 7DMT dwarfs, Ursula, Mater x 3 (from RSR), Mr. Potato Head, and that's just the ones off the top of my head.
Yeah I think now I found some place to go instead of Singapore for a few days. Just gonna stay in Tokyo and do TDL. I got to see this expansion, and the new attractions. Both Belle and the horse movements are amazing. I just hope i can deal with the spinning of the ride vehicle . But just seeing these has me excited, although could you imagine if the new (NOT YET announced HP coaster), would have these as AA's for the coaster or que). I would be Weak and melting like the Wicked Witch of the West. I'm Melting, Melting, Melting, oh what a wicked world, what a cruel cruel world. I am excited for their expansion. Why dont they bring this to DLR. Is it gonna be an exclusive to TDL for a few years until DLR or even WDW would be able to get it?
Once again, Tokyo money shows off, this time with Soarin'.
A truly stunning design from WDI.
Looking at that one scene of the saucers and the AA on it's own movement base reminds me of the SLOP video concept before they supposedly lessened the ride. That's pretty much the way the second scene in SLOP looked like in an earlier rendition. Such a shame Universal probably backed off the early version.
You’re right, sorry. I remember an article not too long ago that stated they’re outsourcing all AAs to Holt but I guess either that changed or I misread/misremembered the story.
This puts all other Soarin attractions to shame. Imagineering actually gave the ride some cool theming and not just being in an airport as well as a cool background! TDL always gets the best stuff.
To be fair, all the Soarin attractions except for Epcot have fit into their location's theme.
I mean, didn't Shanghai also have a uniquely themed queue that wasn't an airport?
This looks fantastic, and the recent construction photos are amazing.
