  1. You have to hand it to the leaders of the area to aggressively switch their economy from oil to tourism but....

     

    No natural born Israelis are allowed in the city.

     

    Dubai: Pros: building a theme park entity 4 x the size of Disney World

    Cons: No Israelis allowed (Natally Portman noooooooo!!!!)

  2. I'm sorry, am I the only fan of the show that didn't hear about the show not airing on Friday? I kept looking it up on T.V guide for monday. Thank goodness

    a) I was watching t.v. at 8

    b) got bored and flipped channels at 8:11

    c) downloaded the first few minutes via bittorent.

     

    NOWHERE on the official website (which I frequented a lot to see when the new episodes were coming -- I had heard it was going to be in a 2 hour block) was it advertised.

     

    THEN -- putting it up against the olympics?

     

    I'm sorry, but the network heads at Fox are a$$wholes. They don't advertise the show's season finale and THEN position it against the olympics opening ceremony?

     

    Its like they want it to fail.

     

    Rastards.

     

    ANYWHO -- I thought the show did wrap up nicely (I knew Lindsay was adopted) and man, Anyong has changed!

     

    I just wish they found busters hand.

     

    I'm thinking the writers did close things off, but they kept it just as open as well -- now we can have a whole story arc with Mom in prison.

     

    Works for me!

     

    Prays that showtime picks it up for two seasons and its downloadable off of iTunes.

    EDIT: 600th post!

     

    Also -- the No scar...dot com -- had to watch my downloaded version to catch that --- sooo funny.

    Noticed conslutant too.

    Thought justine did a great job 'family ties' is the name of the episode lol.

     

    And bringing in the nurse to re-do their WWII scene was sweet.

  3. Huh, I would think Disneyland Gate would make it the most expensive and disney Sea gate one step down?

     

    (kind of like how the closer the hotel is to the most popular park, the more expensive ala Disney World, Disneyland Paris and Disneyland's GC?)

    EDIT: Yes, that Monster's Inc ride looks INSANE! 85 million? Oh my word. get me on that thing....keep on having to delay my planned global hoping Disney trip lol.

  4. Speaking of Paris -- it kinda reminds me of the Paris hotel in vegas -- at least in roof color --

     

    It doesn't really resemble any Disney hotel I know too terribly much.

     

    Kind of a bad drawing though -- I wouldn't have used dusk colors in the reflection on the windows...

     

    Anywho -- a high end Disney resort at Tokyo DR I think is needed -- man, I might have to delay the TOTs across the world trip.

  5. Tokyo Disneyland Hotel to Open in Fiscal Year 2008

     

    URAYASU, CHIBA - Oriental Land Co, Ltd. has announced that the new Disney hotel scheduled to open in Tokyo Disney Resort in Japanese fiscal year 2008 will be named "Tokyo Disneyland Hotel."

     

    The new hotel will be built in front of Tokyo Disneyland Park, with the Disney Resort Line's Tokyo Disneyland Station in between. The hotel will reflect the early 20th-century Victorian architectural style found in the Park’s World Bazaar themed land, the monorail station and the main entrance area. While grand and elegant, the hotel will generate a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for the Guests.

     

    Stepping through the main entrance on the third floor, Guests will find themselves in the most striking feature of the hotel: the spacious, brightly lit atrium lobby with its approximately 30- meter high ceiling. Descending to the first floor, guests will be able to move outside into a pleasant, spacious courtyard bordered by a restaurants and shops. Beyond this courtyard the monorail station and the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland will be waiting, promising fun things to come.

     

    The majority of the approximately 700 guest rooms in the hotel have been designed with families in mind, giving them a place where they can have a relaxing, comfortable stay. These themed room designs will no doubt afford guests a place to rest and talk over the many wonderful things they have experienced at the Resort.

     

    This third Disney hotel is another step in the development of Tokyo Disney Resort as a world-class vacation destination. Its construction will allow even more guests to enjoy the Disney brand of family entertainment and the Resort’s two theme parks, fine dining and tasteful shopping opportunities.

    January 30th, 2006

     

    URAYASU, CHIBA - A new attraction inspired by Disney’s presentation of Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. will open in "Tomorrowland" in "Tokyo Disneyland Park" in Japanese fiscal year 2009. Guests experiencing the attraction will be able to participate in a game of hide-and-seek at the Monsters, Inc. building with the little girl Boo, Mike, Sulley, and other characters featured in the movie. The attraction will capture the warmth and charm of Boo and the monsters, and is sure to be a hit with kids and grown-ups alike.

     

    Opening: Fiscal year 2009 (tentative)

    Attraction Name: To be determined

    Attraction Type: Ride-style

    Investment: Approximately ¥10 billion (US$85 million)

    Additional Facility: New merchandise shop

     

    On top of this 100 million spent on a new Cirque show (still can't get over spending 85 million on a dark ride)...

     

    WOW !! way to go Tokyo Disney!

  6. Shockwave: are you even old enough to have played with the original toy? el oh el I miss my Jetfire.

     

    The ride capacity is in the upper 1800's an hour. Technically they can run 5 trains -- but they use just 4, its easier to manage.

     

    JT3000 -- have you ridden the attraction?

     

    Its not a 3 second fly by btw, its 4-5.

     

    BTMR -- how many show scenes are there? Any big AA's? That goat is crazy! What about Space Mountain? Any AA's there? Is that ride crap? TOT -- how many show scenes - -- WAIT no AAs! - isn't it just a one trick pony with the elevator?

     

    There's all sorts of ways you can look at a ride -- if you want to be all negative -- as I've said elsewhere -- that attitude says more about you than the ride. If you deem the ride inadequate - well,

     

    To me the cool thing about the ride is they've attempted to get the track switch (normally reserved for access into train sheds) out in the public for constant use. That's a huge technical hurdle with major testing needed imo.

     

    Also, the break they use after the yeti scene is a tech. achievement. -- something like that isn't too common. Its a quasi block/slowdown segment.

     

    The yeti is amazing. Its large -- animated, they've got a great fur on it with a nice subtle wind effect. But I guess you could argue its crap too (what's with the cable back there?)

     

    Again, have you ridden the attraction?

     

    Because if you have, and you go 'meh' -- well -- what attraction would you say rocks or is amazing?

     

    Something tells me you don't know of one or can't say any ride today you've ridden is 'amazing'.
