Re: If you were allowed - what 'souvenir' would you take hom

Well since we're expanding beyond souvenirs we could actually carry, I thought I'd add this one to the mix: The Tiki Room. The whole thing, including Dole Whip stand, from DLR Adventureland. I think that would only add to my home's value, don't you think? Got me wondering: how the heck are you goin...

...you plan to skip the much-ballyhooed first Presidential debate of 2016 and watch "Frozen" for about the 27th time because you like every character in it waaaaay more than either candidate.

Re: Tower of Terror to be changed to Guardians of Galaxy the

As Guardians is part of Marvel, and USO holds the rights for Marvel at the themeparks, how can DHS use Guardians for ToT without infringing on Marvel's deal with USO?

Disney Blog LIVE Stream of PAINT THE NIGHT Electrical Parade

Did anyone watch the live streams of the new PAINT THE NIGHT electrical parade premiering tonight at Disneyland? What was your thoughts? Some great technology with the LEDs, but the parade seem very short - just under 20 minutes.

Re: Sorcerer's Hat being removed from HS?

The hat will be coming down, as well as the Great Movie Ride will be getting a "refresh". The ride will now be sponsored by TCM (Turner Classic Movies), and will have a new movie montage in the finale as well as have Robert Osbourne doing the pre-ride video and ride narration. The article is in the ...

I LOVE it when co-workers come to me with that "deer in the headlights" look and say, "I hear you are the guy to talk to about Disney." lol Like I am some sort of drug dealer... :lol: :D Given how some people are addicted to Disney theme parks, your drug dealer analogy is really quite apt... :wink:...

Re: New ride closure rumors

I'm not saying they will change it back, but the overlays allow them the option if they so choose some future day that they can change it back. It took a small fire in the Tiki Room to make the option to change it back because it was financially cheaper to change it back than to rebuild the damaged ...

Re: New ride closure rumors

Not a "no-brainer", actually it's a terrible idea because when you tie something to a franchise, your ride becomes stale within a few years of whatever the latest release is. "Soarin' 2" still has not had anything confirmed, so presumed to not be real until announced since a ride with an hour+ wait...

How "amazing" can those people be, NaCler? I hear they took him to lunch at Biergarten in Germany. You think he would get enough of German food at home... :wink:

Re: You know you're a WDW nut when...

...when your friends send you links to something that will remind you of Disney. For instance, if you go to Youtube, do a search on "Magical Starlight Parade". It's a parade from Universal Studios Osaka. Tell me what it reminds you of from the Disney themeparks... :wink: :lol: :mickey:
