Hollywood Studios' Night Time Shows

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-03-16 13:02
Good morning all!! I've been doing my research on times and what FP to get for our upcoming Disney Trip...and saw that HS has two shows at night. Fantasmic at 8:30pm and Star Wars Epic Show at 9pm. Is there enough time to watch Fantasmic and then make it in time for the Star Wars show? B/C if I have to choose one over the other...it'll be SW ;-) But I'd rather not. Thanks!

Fastpass + Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-03-15 20:46
Do they take fastpass reservations during the party? If not, what about the people who get in at 4 with their party tickets? Do they make fastpass + reservations for the time between 4 and when the party starts?

Pandora: is it just me?

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-03-15 19:36
Or does anyone else "have a bad feeling" about this land?

I don't know why, but I feel like Disney knows this land is going to flop...hard.

Maybe it's because they chose poorly when they made this deal with James Cameron. Maybe they expected all these supposed sequels to have been released already and there would be a LOT of interest at this point when, in reality, there just isn't.

We have been inundated with promotional material for this land and it's like they are trying so hard to hype it up and convince everyone how "spectacular" it is. I don't know...it has been like, what, 7 years since they announced this and all I've seen are some rocks and plants. Hardly mind blowing stuff (when you compare it to something like Diagon Alley). It looks like the rest of AK. Waterfalls, plants (ooh...some are plastic and glow in the dark...big whoop), rocks. Yawn.

And honestly, who really has been "dying" to ride a banshee over the same landscape? Or ride a river boat through the same landscape again. It just seems so one dimensional.

I am usually super excited about new Disney parks stuff but there is literally nothing about this land that makes me care enough to even go see it. I might never bother, to be honest.

I feel like Disney knows this will be a hard sell and that is why they are doing SO much press for it. They are even airing commercials here in CA to visit WDW for Pandora this summer. That's crazy.

In contrast, at least they are building Star Wars lands too. Those will be a massive hit, no press needed. They will have to beat the hoards away with a stick...or resort to timed ticket entry, at the very least.

Rumors

intercot.com - Wed, 2017-03-15 15:19
Haven't had a good rumors thread in a while... Why not start one now???

Epcot rumors:

Center will be coming back... No, not the park, but the name... Rumored to be spelled out EPCOT Center....

GotG still coming to the Energy Pavilion, and will be a 3 minute (or less) coaster with a long, long, long queue... Basically the queue will take up more of the show building than the ride...

France - Look for the Rat to be coming.... Maybe??? 2019...

U.K. - An attraction coming to U.K..... no rumored themed, just a rumored attraction... Something small, nothing huge...

Any others??? Feel free to share and discuss!!!

The Dress Shop to open in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-03-14 23:54
Disney Springs has announced a new section for its Marketplace Co-Op retail space:

“The dress styles are classic in design and contain incredible little details,” continued Donna. “Yet all the styles have modern fits which make them wonderful outfits to wear when visiting Disney Parks.”

Outfits include nods to Disney attractions such as Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, “it’s a small world,” The Haunted Mansion, and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

...

Other dress designs were inspired by classic Disney characters and stories including Minnie Mouse, Snow White from Walt Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and Alice from Walt Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

Matching accessories, such as handbags resembling an apple, the White Rabbit, or a Hollywood Tower Hotel suitcase, will also be released.

Guests can view the entire collection when The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane opens inside the accessories boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs on March 31.

... Select items from this collection will also be released on March 31 at Vault 28 in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort. There will be a limited time offering of select items from the new collection beginning mid-April in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort.

This collection will not be available via the Shop Disney Parks app or Disney Parks online store at time of launch.


Although the pattern was only included in the publicity photos, it was also announced that there would be an Orange Bird dress included in the collection. Attached Images
