Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Discussion Thread

P. 144: More entertainment coming back across WDW!

Recommended Posts

1. What are they going to do to thematically distinguish this from Test Track? (which has several graphics that are similar to the indoor Shanghai version, and overall styling)

To be honest, I don't think they really need to do anything. I mean, from a guest perspective, most guests don't even know the the names of each rides let alone the theming. I can't tell you how many times I've heard guests refer to Space Mountain as "the white one" or Big Thunder Mountain as "Big Foot Mountain" so really, I think it will be just fine the way it is! lol

 

2. Wasn't GOTG supposed to be a big indoor/outdoor rollercoaster? Meaning Disney is putting in Three family/thrill launching coasters at the same time? That would certainly be a new direction.

I feel like the rumor mill has been so crazy on the whole Tron/GotG/Ratatouille/Beauty & The Beast rides that at this point I'm only going to believe anything when we see an announcement. All I know is that the amount of new attractions going into the park from like 2010 onwards is CRAZY and I don't think we've seen this much development since the late 80s when Studios/Typhoon/PI all went in, and that's a GREAT thing!

- Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway (Replacing Great Movie Ride)

- Ratatouille is coming to the France pavilion at Epcot

- A new, seamless Circlevision film is coming to the Epcot China Pavilion

- Tron Lightcycle Power Run is coming to the Magic Kingdom

- Mission: Space will open with a new Green Mission film for families and a reanimated Orange Mission

- New table service restaurant at Mission: Space

- The Disney Skyliner gondola system will debut at Walt Disney World resorts

- A new theater attraction will open on Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom

- The "Minnie Van" uber-like driving service has been announced WDW Resort

Wow, all of this sounds super awesome! Looking forward to the report!

So Disney is packing 20 years of neglected development into 5 years, and treating their resort as if they have 6 different top ten most attended parks in the entire world on the same property, finally giving each park an appropriate number of new rides? Fine by me!

 

This is the basic equivalent of a fifth gate. I'm amazed they will actually be able to build all of this, and honestly this beats Nintendo land handily. I literally do not care what the price is of an annual pass in 2021, every single attraction and addition sounds like something I would want to ride.

I'm glad Universal seems to have given Disney the kick in the butt needed to get all of this in the works.

Disney does not care about, nor do they react to anything Universal does. I really wish people would stop thinking this way, because it is wrong.

If anything, I hope it gives UNI motive to spend more.

And if anyone is wondering where exactly Tron is going at Magic Kingdom, the yellow arrow points to the walking path that is in the concept art which currently exists in the park...

After just going to the park in May, I think the resort is right on target for which areas need attention and new attractions.

 

I know it's going to be a while before all of this gets finished, but all of these are amazing capital improvements to the Disney compound! I'm Obviously excited about having our own Tron coaster here in the US, and happy to see that Tomorrowland Speedway looks to be remaining in the park for now.

 

But I love Epcot, and am definitely excited about the improvements to future world. Mission Space is one my favorite rides there and I agree that it needed a better animated movie. With today's CGI, that experience could be improved greatly. Not sure what the guardian's attraction will be . . . but will probably be amazing and the renderings of the old Universe of Energy building look phenomenal. Hopefully Journey Into Imagination will receive some treatment at some point.

 

The Great Movie Ride was probably pretty good in the 90s, but it seemed kinda tired now. I'm happy with any kind of original Mickey & Minnie attraction. Seeing as you can go meet the characters nearby right after you ride that should help liven up this area of the park as well.

 

I've got the Disney fever, and after going to Six Flags this past week now I really want to go back. I suppose patience will be rewarded though. Oh and book me a room at the new Star Wars resort and a table at the Mission: Space Restaurant . . thank you!

I'm still not seeing it.

 

Does anyone have any idea about the restrictions between Disney and Uni regarding Marvel character rides? I thought Disney wasn't able to use the Marvel characters on the east coast but the Guardians at Epcot certainly throw that out the window. Really I'm just curious when something's going to happen that would force Uni to remake that whole island. I'm also way out of the loop on this so feel free to mock me.

Guardians isn't part of any of the groups of characters used by universal at IOA. The deal is still in perpetuity though.

So excited for Tron, but...that pathway back there was always our escape from the crowds on busy days. And, does that mean one less smoking section in the MK? NOOO...! A lot of announcements for all the Florida parks, we are very excited. Thanks for the quick recap!

Re: Smoking

 

Expect to see ALL of the sections eventually phased out.

While I would tend to agree as I don't feel there is any need to cater to smokers anymore, the problem is going to be that if there aren't any smoking areas, they will just be obnoxious and smoke wherever the hell they want to. Maybe they'll just keep that one little tiny area by Big Thunder Mountain, or... they can do what Tokyo Disney does and just shove them all in a box! lol
