As long as we're being serious, the Florida Disney parks are wall-to-wall packed almost year round these days. I think they're doing just fine without pennies from the "coasterheads".


Yeah, "coasterheads" are (at best) very small part of Disney's audience.

Seriously, I'm planning a Florida to Ohio road trip, as many decent parks and coasters as I can ride, and Disney simply isn't on the agenda, because they only cater to families with small kids as far as I can see. What's stopping them finally taking that step and announcing a new thrill park filled with coasters themed to their industry-crushing Marvel property? Iron Man, a B&M flying coaster, Captain America, a Giga coaster, Black Widow, a Gerstlauer Infinity, I could go on and on...


As a coasterhead, I am very satisfied with Expedition Everest, Rock N Roller Coaster, and Space Mountain. They are intense in their own ways that B&M's simply can't compete with. It's incredible how crazy a backwards helix in complete darkness feels on Everest.

If you weren't a coaster person or familiar with the layout you'd swear that the indoor spiral is actually a vertical loop. It certainly feels like one.

Everest's backwards section is insane. All in the dark too.

Screamscape.com (thanks!) just posted an art concept that Disney has released, which finally reveals
what the eatery in Toy Story Land will/might be..... Woody's Lunch Box. Cool idea!

With outdoor seating, too! (o:

^I see in the concept art picture that it looks like they will be using the same style of fences as in Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris. Now for me I thought this fence style didn't really work. I understand the concept of what they were trying to achieve, but for me I thought it just looked terrible and had a very cheap look.

Example (not my picture)

Just my opinion of course, and not a major detail, but I hope they're able to make it look better at Hollywood Studios.

I have the feeling they will probably go the same way, with the fencing they did in Paris. Come to think of it,
I'm pretty sure Hong Kong Disneyland did the same thing for fencing, in their TSL. I'll go check here, somewhere....

Yes, it does look like the same fencing as in Paris, and what the Studios in getting for their TSL. Pic from the net.

Yea HKDL has it all over, but personally, I really liked the Knex look. I thought it was a clever way to fit the theme and the area is already so colorful I thought it worked better than a solid "lego" fence would have.

Having seen it and walked through it all at the Studios (2015), I can honestly say, it didn't matter that much to me, visually. Now there were crowds to be walking through too, so I normally didn't see as much of the fence, as I would if it was much less in numbers. I also noticed, that nobody tried to sit on these fences, being rounded and less width than some normal fencing. So that was possibly, also included with Disney's plans to fence the vegetation etc in. Making the fence..."un-sitable". :wink:
