Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Discussion Thread

P. 140: Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration details released!

Recommended Posts

I hope it turns out better than Santa Kong did for USH!

 

WDW sells itself as a vacation (especially during the holidays), so upping their seasonal offerings should only further help them bring more locals in.

After 21 years as a musician, I was also terminated via email.   Not sure how much a difference it will make, but if you miss LIVE entertainment, feel free to email WDW at   wdw.guest.comm

Might be an unpopular opinion with some of the don't change anything to old rides Disney fans but I think this is great that they are updating it. The last few times I went on it at both parks I thoug

It was very interesting after spending several days at Disney last week to visit Universal yesterday and see how much live entertainment they had! I wonder why Disney cut everyone while Universal seem

^ But I'm not sure that's what they're targeting? Their business seems much more set in the families that visit every decade from all over the earth (who I'm sure they make more money on per person/day) than the locals.

 

Personally I'd love to see seasonal stuff, but I'm not sure it serves the mail market that I think WDW is targeting.

I find it really interesting that they're doing this at one of the Florida resorts! Maybe a step in the direction of getting Haunted Mansion Holiday!?!?

Oh, I really hope so! I'm sure there will be a lot of eyes on this one to see if a seasonal make-over of an attraction will go over well. I totally understand why WDW doesn't do it, but I'd love to see Haunted Mansion Holiday here!

 

Why doesn't WDW do it? You have me curious now.

I think the majority of people who visit WDW have already planned their vacations regardless of what the holiday offerings are. It certainly enhances their experience and may help entice them to return next holiday season, but I doubt there are many people out there who are now planning trips to WDW because this was announced.

 

On the flip side, locals (or anyone in range to make it a day trip/mini vacation), might be enticed to go back to the park because it is something new for them.

I'm timing my next visit to coincide with the holiday season, even as an "occasional" visitor the seasonal offerings add a lot to the experience. But they probably don't give the same boost to attendance at WDW as DLR, where the APs will turn up in their thousands to experience a new sandwich!

No mention of the Carousel of Progress. Has Kristen outgrown the best ride ever?

It's usually not open for the private events. Trust me, we sort of purposely go "after hours" if you know what I mean!

For some reason, KidTums had never ridden Jasmine's Flying Carpets and found it HILARIOUS to get us wet from the camels! Thanks, dear!

 

I approve of this!

^And by the time she catches on, maybe she'll have outgrown her Carousel of Progress phase.

 

Never!!!! Of course she will never see it with the great ending it had in California. When at the end you got to go up the escalator and see the city of the future!

I was really torn about getting glow with the show ears. They seem really cool, but as someone that goes to the Disney parks infrequently, it didn't seem to be worth it to me. Especially because I am making everyone else's show better but not my own.

^Can't she see that on the Peoplemoover in Florida? Oh, the irony!

 

I forgot about that. The city goes by to fast when on the ride. I used to love to stand there and look at the model when I was a kid. Can we stop the Peoplemoover next time I'm there?

This IMO seems to be the biggest flaw with the Glow With The Show ears. Putting aside the fact that I think the ears actually make it distracting for whatever show you're trying to watch (especially the castle projection show, IMO), you are being asked to spend $25 on something that you can't actually see, and that enhances the show for everyone else BUT you.

 

And the only hope you have is that other people have also spent the $25 so that you'll be able to take part in whatever the ears do, because you'll have no idea as you can't see them.

 

I dunno, I have to be honest and say that it's just something that really doesn't appeal to me and I'm not sure where this whole thing will eventually go.

 

They ears are also heavy and they seem to fall off more because of the additional weight.
