Re: Planes sequel box office

I think Disney made the right move when they decided to use technology to link customers into their park vacation before they arrive.

W.D. some years ago I posted an idea on here that Disney put photo opportunity kiosks around the [more]

Re: Is Universal the New Leader?

Diagon Alley opening up and the frenzie is little more than good PR

Actually they increase total park capacity when they add an attraction.

That's one reason elaborate queues are so plentiful... they can jack up the [more]

Re: Pixar Wage Fixing

Fuskie are you referring to the Panda article? It seems like they wrote an article and now many other writers are writing about that article. The way some of it all is written, it makes it seem like it's possible that there is new developments and [more]

Re: Pixar Wage Fixing

Fuskie,

I'm not sure who you are referring to when you say "this guy" has an axe to grind?

It's a confusing thing to be sure. Best I can tell it's a literal conspiracy to keep talent from being able to leave based on low [more]

Re: Is Universal the New Leader?

Moe, thanks for the correction. I did not present my info as accurate, rather, just info that I "thought" may be how they do it.

Are you saying that if someone uses a park hopper pass, that if they go to say DCA and DL that it [more]

Re: Princess Too Many Sticky Buns

Speaking of low/hi tech effect, I was watching the original SW the other day and someone said they added several CG scenes to it for the DVD. After he said that I did notice what appeared to be strictly CG added aliens whereas wasn't the original all [more]

Re: Is Universal the New Leader?

Thanks for the footwork Mike. I wonder where they get their numbers from. I don't believe Disney releases attendance figures.

Also I do think even for their own count, Disney counts every click meaning if you stay on property and go to MK, [more]

Re: Is Universal the New Leader?

On the other hand, each one of Disney's Orlando theme parks has larger individual gate attendance than both Universal gates combined

Fuskie, I don't believe that's true.

Who thinks the reason Universal Studios is getting [more]

Re: Is Universal the New Leader?

Thanks for the link Moe.

Both parks synergize off one another. What makes both successful is the fact that they are in a tourist mega zone. I wouldn't be surprised that if Universal were to close, Disney's attendance would drop by 25%. They [more]

Man severs fingers on POC

A British man lost a couple of fingers Friday on the unique Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Walt Disney World in Florida when he failed to keep them inside the boat. His fingers are apparently forever lost to Davy Jones' locker; they were not [more]

Walt had 16th coolest signature of all time

According to this article, Walt Disney had the 16th coolest signature of all time.

I will say there seems to be a resemblance to his signature, and the Walt Disney Company's official font.

Re: Comp. only boots to Aptio

Ok Steven, very stupid thing on my part here but, I inspected the hard disc and discovered it wasn't completely plugged into its connector. Plugged it back in and it works now! That calls for a YAY!

Not that it's a big deal, but now I [more]

More creativity needed on deals

Just throwing this out there. Seems like Disney hasn't offered much variety in the way of deals on the parks. Free dining or a % off a resort. Besides being boring (unchanged for how many years now?), I don't completely trust the deals [more]

Re: Comp. only boots to Aptio

I'm ready to swear off windows forever. Their wording and complications on simple things is off the chart. They think they need 10,000 programmers to constantly change and complicate every nuance to the point that you can't really do much of anything [more]

Re: Comp. only boots to Aptio

Thanks Steve.

I messed around and changed a setting in the aptio screen and now it won't even boot to the aptio screen, only to a black screen that says Samsung on it.

Re: Comp. only boots to Aptio

Hi Steve,

I reckon it's possible. I did try putting a non system boot disc (from a different computer) in the dvd drive but it didn't boot to that either.

I messed around and clicked a couple settings in the utility, and now it [more]
