First off, take it or leave it to the things I will post when I have time. I can only post when away from California.

I will not debate anything. Take it or leave it.

That being said.

There are no plans for a Disney World version of Carsland. That is just fanboi fluff. There are no plans for anything at the Studios right now.

Universal hates Marvel. If Universal could dump the Marvel license to Disney and get rid of the rides in Orlando, they would. Disney sends people to IOA almost everyday to make sure the attractions are running in like new condition. Not to mention Disney is in Universals books.

Avatar will make California's Carsland look bad. Avatar will be what all future themed areas will be judged by. Everything from a design standpoint is complete. Everything is ahead of schedule.

Silly as it sounds, been hearing the Epcot Food and Wine festival might just turn into a year round thing instead of a couple months.

No Star Wars other than what is already built. Sorry fanbois.

Avatar is not the end of building at Animal Kingdom. I would guess you will see more tacked on there before you see demo at the Studios. There is design work done.

Downtown Disney has been declared unfixable. It will be nothing more than a outdoor mall, and never anything more than that. It did not start that way.

Star Wars weekends? What about Imagination Movers weekends? Hint Hint.

Assuming what you say is true, it all sounds good to me.

Okay, but who are you? Why can you post only when away from California?

It sounds like a great idea. I wish they would start doing that at WDW!

Hey guys... be happy that LP has finally attracted a higher class of troll. He won't say who he is, why he knows anything more about WDW than Donny does, and he refuses to take questions. But hey... he speaks in complete sentences. We should all be grateful. ;-)

Personally, I wouldn't bet a dime on anything he said.

ORDDU: Still it makes for an interesting read and the test of time will prove whether or not this poster is a troll or not. In the meantime, some of what was said sounds good--other parts of it not so much--particularly the part about Down Town Disney being unfixable in Disney's eyes. If true it's only because they don't want to spend the correct amoung of money to fix it.

I'll be back next week for more, let me leave you with this which I will say is 60% confirmed.

Imagine a simulator that once you enter, sit and buckle, you just might be placed into a whole 360 degree vision ride in 3d. What if this simulator was based on the Avengers, and featured the actors from the films.

Something like that could redefine the whole industry.

See you all next week, stay safe.

The idea of an eternal Food and Wine Festival is interesting, but I just don't think that they'd really go for it. The Festival requires a ton of extra staffing for all of the booths (and backstage kitchens), which I can't see Disney supporting long-term. It also causes traffic flow problems during a relatively quiet time of year; I can't imagine what it would be like during a season that's already busy.

It would also be tough to market it to the general public. Part of the draw of F&W is that it temporary (get it before it's gone!), and that it is a little different each year. If they keep it running, I doubt there would be as many updates. From a logistical standpoint, I think it would make a lot more sense to just make a new pavilion.

And I still don't have a lot of faith that the Avatar stuff will happen. I've heard nothing but perplexed responses from park-goers who've heard of the project, and Disney sure hasn't put a lot of effort into getting people excited for it.

The simulator sounds okay, but it's still just a simulator; why does everything these days need to be projections? And 3D? I can watch TV just fine at home; I want to see something 'real' when I'm at Disney. The 360 aspect sounds like StormRider at TDS, which is neat, but still not nearly as convincing as physical sets would be. Overall, the concept just doesn't excite me.

I can only post when I'm away from the liquor cabinet.

But I still don't think Avatarland sounds interesting enough to warrant an entire mega-land.

Downtown Disney is unfixable? It's a cheesy outdoor tourist mall with carbo-loaded chain restaurants, predictable chain stores, and a string of Disney owned shops selling piles of plastic junk all made in China by loving hands. What is to fix?

WDW is sending CM's to IOA to make sure the Marvel rides are in good cosmetic condition?!? That's hilariously funny, seeing as how so many WDW rides are in bad cosmetic condition.

If I were in charge of Universal, I would send a team of my own folks to ride Maelstrom and Dinosaur and Jungle Cruise each week and send a recap of all the things that are broken. And I'd send the broken down report to WDW each week on Marvel stationary.

Im guessing the op can only post when he's not letting people over his bridge.
