I, for one, am overwhelmed with all these additions. I feel as a 35 year old single man with a 13 year old (God son) these new attractions are really gonna pull is back to Disney! Now to start saving for that star wars hotel . . .

All of these announcements sound incredible. Finally getting a Mickey Mouse ride, plus the Tron coaster has me absolutely giddy.

How long now until Universal announces the Harry Potter Hotel? ;)

^ I'll give them two to six months so they can at least scrounge together some underwhelming concept art. :lmao:

Has the ride system for Guardians been announced yet?

I also wonder what exactly will be done to Paradise Pier to make it into Pixar Pier.

Some new signs, a character or two. Background music will change. If we're lucky we may even get a new game.

Lol, I was thinking about that but then it struck me . . . Will J.K. Rowling even allow it? Besides I think a Star Wars hotel is more appealing, to me, than Potter . . . even though I have never seen one star wars movie.

First of all, thank you Adam, for all the excellent ongoing coverage at the D23 Expo!

Secondly..... :omg: then :shockr: then :airtime: :airtimer:

And I think I'm actually more excited about M&M's Runaway Railway, now.
I realize that it will be completely different, but it makes me think of the
Mickey's Mad House the Imagineers were working on, decades ago.

(Essentially, at that time, it was to be a mad mouse ride, enclosed, and
mostly all in black and white MM cartoon settings, if I remember.)

It all looks amazing. Time to plan for...2022? The year after WDW's 50th.

Awesome. :mickey:

Wow, everything here sounds very exciting. Lots of changes for these parks in the next couple of years. Can't wait to see the results--if that Star Wars land is anything at all like the pictures, it'll be awesome!

With so many lines and so much going on at once, D23 is a challenging event to cover. You really did a great job of capturing it Adam! Thanks for keeping us updated on everything throughout the weekend. It felt like I was right there watching it live - great work! :dude:

And what an awesome batch of announcements for Disney Parks! There's so much stuff to be excited for! :airtimer: :br :mickey: :lmao:
