I've watched it many times at the Studios. I have to agree with people. It's a great show for adults, and the kids are so funny.

I would LOVE to be able to do it. But at last it's only for wee ones.

The biggest fear I have is people gaming the system. Making reservations and then making ADRs and trying to e-bay them. Since I can "cancel" them 48 hours before arrival that is a resource that Disney is "giving" me at very little risk to me. So no one can get ADRs unless you pay a scalper err middl...

They had space, they did NOT have time. When you are building a park from a swamp there is a lot of work to do. Remember Walt died, and for about 2 years the Florida project was on hold (I've heard there was discussion of selling the land.) When, I believe Roy, pushed for the project to continue wit...

Yes, but it seems that it would be far more costly to transport entire rooms rather than bringing the materials needed to build on the spot. I don't know, but it just seems more efficient the way we're used to (but maybe it's just because that's what we're used to :D ) Well it depends on what you a...

The point is as I said, you can build them and store them till they are ready to put them into the building. You don't have to wait for the floors to be ready, and the walls done, and the electricians and plumbers are done. So you have 2 crews one is on the site building the Superstructure, and anot...

Settling or other, it is true that the modules cannot be removed, which somewhere in my many viewings of various things about Disney, was something that was supposed to be a reality early on. The ability to pull the modules out at anytime in the future was supposed to exist. This seems to be the an...

The setting issue is just urban legend, as far as I can tell. Originally, they thought about using it to "update" the rooms, but that idea was dropped before construction started. As that video showed it was a "rapid" construction technique. It's a win because you can start the finish/detail work wh...

Yeah, I remember having read that, now. It's really a shame. I liked the Christmas show. My wife agrees with you. She last year she was like "Oh we can't miss the country bears holiday show." She was disappointed after she asked the CM at the door which show was playing (because I told her I didn't...

Yep the attraction doesn't sustain high Gs compared to other "Thrill" rides. But it is very long, as rooders said, it's 2Gs for longer than any other ride. As for the deaths, at least the little boy, his defect (at least the way the corner described it) was such that he could have dropped over dead ...

BTW there is already one kingdom tower in Riyadh. Kingdom Tower is the center piece of Kingdom Centre (spelled to make acp happy.) As long as we have rumors going, there is also one floating that says Kingdom Tower was it's "production name" and since there is already the one in Riyadh, it will open...

You guys missed the Haunted Mansion. **************SPOILERS**************** At DLR the Haunted mansion is "outside" the park, like space mountain at MK (which is outside the train track/berm). But at DLR the stretching room is an elevator which takes you down to a passage to the attraction. At MK th...

When (and for how long) do they close it to switch to the Christmas show? Well for the last year (maybe two) they haven't do the christmas show. They just left it as normal. I bet Pooh is foreclosing on them. I mean the little cuddly bear is a money machine (he sells more merchandise than Mickey [s...

Both? The name is Kingdom TOWER. And all the pictures and schematics I've seen only show one.

I don't agree with jcodirewolf on some of his points. If I as a member do not pay my Dues, then DVC will forclose on my contract, take it and resell it. Any points that DVC has in unsold inventory they pay the Dues. Same with Condos here where I live in NY. I belonged to my condo board before we mo...
