Re: Norway Gets Frozen

what's frozen about anyway, the ice age?

It's a princess story that takes place in Norway. Disney cruise line even added a summer cruise to go to the land of "Frozen".

Example of Magic Band Implementation

We keep hearing about the extra costs and problems WDW is having with the Magic Band implementation but we haven't seen much of it in the news or on the boards.

Well I unfortunately have come across at least some evidence of their problems. [more]

Re: Norway Gets Frozen

Having no children, EPCOT was the only reason I was considering a trip to Florida, as it's original concept appealed to me. This thread tells me to not bother as it's degenerated to a kiddie land.

Re: Norway Gets Frozen

I suspect almost nobody flies down to Orlando and just buys a one-day ticket at EPCOT. I'd guess that almost all EPCOT visitors have a multi-day Disney World pass, and spend one or two days at some or all of the four parks there.

Re: Norway Gets Frozen

While there is a troll king in the movie, the odds that this "ride" will be about Norway seems slim. Too bad. Experimental prototype community of tomorrow is now exceptionally profitable commercialism of today.

Re: Norway Gets Frozen

A little late here but I agree with Fuskie. If you are going to have 4 parks and maybe even more in the future I think it is important that each has its own character and theme.

To me the magic of the early EPCOT is already gone as it is [more]

Re: Could ESPN Become the NetFlix of Sports?

I think the future for ESPN may be as more of a partner than a customer. We're starting to see that in college sports with the SEC Network (ESPN) and the Big 10 Network (FoxSports). In an a la carte world, I think ESPN could easily lose the NFL, [more]

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

For what it's worth, when I held Sprint in the late 90s, the annual report would have a long distance calling card good for 20 minutes printed in it. Sticks in my mind an oil company I had stock in sent me a prepaid gas card one year. [more]

Re: "Frozen" short film

I'm thinking it might be more likely to come in front of Tomorrowland which I think will be more of a child fantasy than Cinderella, which I think will be more in the flavor of Once Upon A Time and Maleficent.

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

I totally agree on Autopia. It was a cool ride in the late 50's, but today is just dated. And huge. Really huge. It's bigger than Fantasyland. I would love to see it yanked and and the land used for better attractions. Plus, the Boatopia loading [more]

Re: C'mon, its time for some magical discounts!

Given that there is not really an off-season anymore at Disneyland, I think the correct play is to raise the prices on the various annual passes until the number sold starts to drop a bit. There is obviously pricing power here that isn't being [more]
