yodiwan1, you saw a preview of the attraction or a trailer for the movie?

I know there have been trailers out there for a while. I saw one over a year ago.

I've often wondered if when the Ducks at Epcot go to Duck meetings, they don't paddle around going "What happened to the 8pm fireworks?" And the other ducks look at them like "What the hell are you talking about?" "you know the fireworks that go off at 8pm..."

I'm not too afraid of a tinkerbell land. This whole fairies thing has been a disaster from the get go. The movie is apparently so bad they didn't want to release it Direct to Video (it was originally scheduled for Oct 2007, i believe.) Rumors are that Disney ended up paying off some the companies th...

The metal trash cans shouldn't be an issue, assuming you wear gloves.

And the metal food carts, mostly seem have rubber/plastic coated wheels.

Both of which would prevent them from completing the circuit.

Not saying that isn't the rule. Just saying it shouldn't be a problem.

Bug's life is already in the parks. It's Tough To Be A Bug at AK. Also, out in DCA, there is a Bug's Life area with themed rides, and there (will be) a Cars area too (I believe). I'll agree that The Incredibles are under-represented, especially for the length of time it's been out. same with Monste...

I think the reason Pixar is so underrepresented in the parks is because until Dreamworks released Shrek, Pixar was Disney's red-headed stepchild. Then there was the whole Pixar severing itself from Disney and reconciling. Disney didn't want to invest a great deal of money on something, unless they ...

How long is the show itself? It seems that even with zero crowds, there's a baseline wait that can't be avoided. All hail the genius of the Omnimover. Preshow is about 3 minutes; show is about 5 minutes; handles ~100 people per show. un/load sequence takes about 3 minutes. But yes if the "feed" is ...

well I've got a photo of soarin queue saying 180 Minutes, and I've seen it higher. My question is do you think TSMM will have 3 hour wait times in 3 years? I don't I think they will be high but not that high.

I wouldn't count on it. When they do special cruises they normally announce them about 2 years in advanced, and start taking reservations a year or more in advance. Right now the website will let me book the Magic and Wonder for Caribbean cruises (for the summer of 2009 July/Aug/Sept.) Now I know ac...

yep I was going to point out it's going to be a lot like Rainforest Cafe. Since it's the same the same company, just different theming.

Captain Schnemo, it's called 'sniping' on ebay, and there are sites that do it for you now. In MMORPGs it's called 'farming'.

I've also been wondering how the wait times have changed since they introduced the red tags/HID cards. They USE to do it with queue length, it use to be very simple people pack in the queue at some value per foot, the attraction handles so many people per minute, multiply the two together and you ge...

You need a reservation code to make them 180+10 days. I don't remember how many days ahead locals can (I want to say 30 days.) Quickgold do you know?

Nimoy does the opening narration at the MOS-Boston Omnimax. :)

It's pretty cool. You really have to hear him say (not sing) "Who put the bop in the bop-she-bop-she-bop" :)

Yea I'm really afraid of how it's going to effect ADRs. DisBeamer, server hits shouldn't be an issue (even a commodity PC today could deal with it.) Assuming they make you put in a valid resort reservation. Because if they don't make you do that, then there really isn't any reason not to write a rob...
