  1. ^In Florida they are restricted as to what they can do with Marvel due to Universal's licencing agreement that's in place for IoA, it's not just Hulk & Spiderman that are off the cards, as I understand it, it's any character that is related to any characters that are used at IoA, so that would include all the Avengers, this is presumably why they have been able to use Guardians of the Galaxy at Epcot. Also a big coaster park is not Disney's style, they have been able to create some of the best thrill rides in the world without having to build any big skyscraping coasters
  2. I've voted for Facebook & Twitter. Facebook is the only platform I use socially though, I only use Twitter for following things I'm interested in, I never actually tweet.
  3. ^I think it's pretty much a given that the trains will feature more traditional lap bars, instead of the over the top style that Mack normally use. The photos of the train shows that there are not any restraints installed on the top of the seats, so they must be in front of the riders.
  4. It turns out it's a new series of Disney Fan Days, Not sure what they will entail, but apparently the first one is on Oct 1st.
  5. Great report, I can't wait to go to MNSSHP again on our 2020 (hopefully) trip. The trick or treating looks so much better than our last time there, I can remember we ended up eating hardly any of our haul, that was way back in 2008 though.
  6. Here's a few from LEGOLAND Windsor for Ninjago and the renamed Destiny's Bounty (Previously Longboat Invader), and Flight of the Giant Peach at Oakwood. Destiny's Bounty Ninjago Ninjago Ninjago Flight of the Giant Peach Flight of the Giant Peach
  7. I don't think they'll sell out before the day, especially in September, I would definitely see what the queues are like before buying any Fastrack.
  8. I imagine that the entire area won't be taken up by the ride, looking at the size of the space, you could pretty much fit both Forbidden Journey and Gringotts in it, so I think they will have the new ride plus an extension to the Hogsmeade area, to bring in more food & retail outlets into the area and alleviate the crowding in the area. I guess they could also add in things like the Shrieking Shack to add further landmarks to the area.
  9. Looking at those pictures it doesn't appear to be a fault in the construction of the ride, as you can see the section where the seats are bolted to the arm is still intact, so to me that would suggest that the seats either did hit something with enough force to rip it off the arm, or that it was metal fatigue and it broke on its own under the pressure of the downswing.
  10. They could potentially have it timed to happen a couple of minutes after you return to your room at the end of the day to ensure that everybody has a chance to actually see it, instead of just going off at set times. I'm sure that's something that could be implemented with MyMagic+. I'm wondering how it'll work at night time, will you have a switch to close shutters on your window, or will you permanently be able to see the screens throughout the night? I can imagine that even if there is very little happening on the screens, it's still going to illuminate the room a bit, which may not be to everyone's taste, I guess a mix of both options would be the best choice.
  11. Ratatouille is definitely a good ride, and will be a great compliment to the World Showcase. I've not done Mystic Manor or Pooh so I can't really make the comparisons between them, but if you take the ride on its own merit, it is a fun and impressive ride. Yes it's not particularly ground-breaking, but there are some clever features that do make it that bit special. Another point that while it does rely on screens for portions of the ride, I think at least these fit in fairly well and include sections that would be extremely difficult to replicate within physical sets, also the large scale of the screens help keep the illusion that you have been shrunk down to the size of a rat. Regardless, I'm more excited for Guardians as it is an original ride, so I'm sure it's going to be an impressive concept whatever it turns out to be, but unfortunately I think I'm going to miss it on our next planned trip in 2020 along with most of the other announced additions.
  12. My advice regarding the fastrack options is to wait until the day, while you can pretty much guarantee it will be busy when you visit, you never know what the weather is going to do, so if it is not the best the parks might not be too bad. As for options I wouldn't go for Platinum at Alton Towers, the jump in price is quite steep from their gold option, which will get you on most of the big rides once. If it's in your budget the one park I would spend more on is Thorpe Park, as the queues can really get bad there, and the Full Throttle pass only gets you on the main coasters and only after 1pm I believe, the Ultimate pass gives you unlimited entry to most of the rides plus once onto Derren Brown. Also Chessington does have fastrack, but the options for that really depends on what you are wanting to ride there.
  13. I don't think it has anything to do with the Dragons reaching the end of their life at all, but more likely how many more people they can attract with a new Harry Potter specific ride. Also if you consider the size of the land taken up by the Dragons, they can easily fit a couple of rides and more retail & food outlets in that space.
  14. The ride experience is fairly different between the two also, while I've not ridden Tron itself, I've been on other Vekoma Motorbike coasters, and the feeling is nothing like Space Mountain. The only downside to this is that they will be removing a 32in (0.8m) ride with a 48in (1.2m) ride, presuming that it will have the same restrictions as Shanghai. Yes there is already plenty to do for the younger ones in the park, but the Tomorrowland Speedway is a popular attraction with them. I like the idea of combing both the Lightcycles and a Speedway/Autopia, if they had a full on Tron theme with electric cars it would be a great revamp, and an interesting attraction with the lightcycles speeding along above.
  15. I've never thought to look at Centre Parcs in Europe as an option, I'll have to keep that in mind for future years, as I'd love to check out some of the European parks.
