Re: Fastpass+ Rant

I know I am probably in the vast minority here, or probably the only person on the face of the planet that feels this way, but honestly, I would prefer FP to just go away completely. I miss the "good ol' days" of having to wait in line at each ride you wanted to go on. I realize the value of FP and ...

Re: Who else misses Horizons at EPCOT Center?

I miss EPCOT Center as a whole. I miss Wonders of Life Pavilion, Spaceship Earth with Jeremy Irons, Living Seas, for as silly as it sounds I also miss Living with the Land with the Cast Member on the boat, and more of the other rides from the 90s (what I consider to be my personal golden time at Epc...

Magic Kingdom - Tomorrowland - Area Music - Tomorrowland- Complete loop (1989-2003) 3. Magic Kingdom - Tomorrowland - Are...

Re: Web based experiment

I actually kinda like it. Thanks for doing this. I typically use the Windows Desktop application, but sometimes that acts weird for me, so having this is a fallback (and maybe even will take over as primary) method for connecting is fantastic!

Re: EPCOT Channel

This is a great idea! I would love the idea of an Epcot stream! I would host it if I knew how! I've got loads of time, but wouldn't know where to start!? :hatter_bounce: I think you just need a computer and storage space. You can always pop into chat and see if any of the powers that be are in ther...

Re: stream down? report it here.

Looks like the 48K Request stream is down now. Same seems to be true for 96k? I actually host the 48k stream and I can say with almost 100% certainty that the problem with the stream does not appear to be on my end. I think it is more of an "internal" thing which affects the now playing list and bo...

Re: Frequent and irritating buffering

Sorry, I know I'm really late to this party, but I've also noticed this and have had conversations with the admins. We've tried things to fix it and sometimes seems as if it had. I'm sure the root cause diagnosis is ongoing and I'm sure a solution will be found soon (if not already)!

Re: Story about Avatar Ride

Interesting article. I'm curious to see how Disney brings Avatar / Pandora to life. But, I don't think it will have the drawing power that Harry Potter or even Star Wars does.... Yeah I was kinda shocked when they announced "Avatar-land", especially since it was kinda after the Avatar madness. I kn...

Story about Avatar Ride

I found this mildly interesting and thought I'd share. There isn't a ton of new or groundbreaking information, but thought some might want to read:

Re: Ellen's Energy Adventure - WRONG!

I guess the only "defense" I can come up with is that at the time of the script being written, it was commonly thought that it was dinosaurs? Perhaps it wasn't figured out until after...? Or, it was simply just not consulting with experts :)

Re: Streams / Availability

Forgive me for jumping in as I may be wrong, but I don't think 5MB/s upstream would really offer any value. I have FiOS and donate my upload bandwidth which is currently 25 MB/s and that powers the 48k request stream.

Guess the most requested tracks!

This is just for fun, as we'll probably never know, unless the admins have a way of seeing how many times the tracks were played, but I just wanted to play a little game of guess which tracks are the most played! I would guess Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean (regardless of which park th...

Re: Raised ticket prices again?!?!?!

Why does the page say 2013 and have links (on the page itself) to broken pages? I can't imagine they would do a double jump in a single year, annual boosts are normal, but they always will shift it forward if a major attraction is about to open up so that they can catch more people with the new pri...
