How is it going to be?

A. This isn't, you know.

B. That is October, 2006

C. Disney is currently having the biggest Celebration ever right now, and will probably do little for the MK next year.

D. What do you want to know by "How's it going to be"?

E. Insert generic smartass comment here. *** Edited 11/4/2005 2:10:55 AM UTC by Peabody***

A. He's right

B: He's right again

C. That's likely wrong. All MK got was the, IMO, less than stellar 'Cinderellabration' for DL's 50th, so I'd *hope* that something a little "more better" would be in the offing for MK's 35th. (maybe a little snow for the snow globe parade so Mickey doesnt look like John Travolta in "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble"...)

D. I think it will have Disney's requisite hype, but in the end, it will still be the Disney that millions know and love.

E. No need for smartass remarks. Either answer honestly or just move on!....butt-nugget!

Probably a new show or something. Seems that all the new E-tickets for Florida have been going to the three other parks and I don't think that's about to change.

The other three parks NEED the E-tickets, though. I can't say I'm bothered.

What calls for the personal attack 2Hostyl?

Sawblade: I'm sorry, we are having a misunderstanding. I meant to criticize the "random assness" on the site in general Peabody's post in particular. Basically I'm railing agaisnt the somewhat 'uppity' attitude of those who choose to make smart aleck replies to a post that they deem 'unworthy'.

As for the "Chris K" bit, I first heard the term "random assness" from a guy named Chris Kearsing who at least used to frequent these boards. I was simply giving him credit for the term and I in no way intended to personally attack you.

Hope that clears things up

Random Assness... I like that. It definitely fits. There are way too many people that seem to lack the ability to respond to anything without a touch of smart-alicky sarcasm.

Granted, the other three Florida parks DO need E-tickets but it would be nice to see something get thrown into the Magic Kingdom eventually! How about a completely new concept like the Indiana Jones, Tower of Terror and Splash Mountain rides of the early 90's?

I wonder about the financials of building a new E-ticket in the MK though. If I am not mistaken it is still the most atteneded amusement park in the world and the numbers don't seem to slip. At the same time, there is a definite need at AK and Epcot.

While I'd like to see a new E-ticket as much as anyone I'm just not sure it is "needed".

Friday, November 4, 2005 4:19 PM
I would venture to say that the MK, and DL both "need" an E ticket. DL hasn't had one within it's gates in 10 years, and the MF in florida hasn't had one in what, 13 years? There's strong rumors of both parks getting one in the not too distant future, which would be great!

The last E-Ticket attraction built at MK, aside from Mickey's Philharmagic (which may or may not be considered one) was Splash Mountain. Unless you count the Pooh ride.

IIRC Splash Mtn. was built in 1992-ish. So, yeah. 13 or so years.

I know the Pooh rides don't count as E-tickets.

You're right- with the "original" Disney parks still so heavily attended, there is probably little to be gained by adding an E-ticket. Still, for those repeat customers looking for something new, there is often very little aside from a revised show or a new parade.

Magic Kingdom is fun fun fun!

But more importantly, the commercials with Walt giving his Disneyland opening day speech in front of WDW's castle are weird. He never lived to opening day at the Magic Kingdom. ;)

You should really read some of the posts DL fans are making on the boards about that commercial, it's like they called a Jihad on Disney Marketing. It's scarry. Anyway, don't expect much for the 35th of MK (rehabs and updates), now as for Epcot's 25th...... :)

THat's kind of what I was hinting at in my point #3. If something was going to happen for the MK in 2006, it would have likely started work by now. All rumors seem to point to 2-3 years at least down the road.
Friday, November 4, 2005 11:06 PM
My bet is that not much, except perhaps a new parade, will be added for the 35th. In fact, the 30th anniversary was pretty much ignored in 2001. They were more interested in celebrating Walt's 100th birthday then.

However, I suspect that we may see something more for Epcot's 25th anniversary in 2007. Possibly something in the old Wonders of Life pavilion, perhaps? Perhaps even a new Illuminations show? Who knows...we'll just have to wait and see... *** Edited 11/5/2005 4:07:31 AM UTC by Brother Dave***

There seems to be a lot of Epcot rumors swirling around. A Finding Nemo darkride, a retheme of Spaceship Earth, an update to Universe of Energy, a new pavilion to replace Wonders of Life... the list goes on. I'm interested to see what (if anything) eventually happens...

... not that Epcot really NEEDS anything. With Mission: Space, Test Track, Spaceship Earth and Soarin', Epcot is a nice blend of old and new Disney and, with the World Showcase, is more than anyone can completely absorb in the course of a day.

Personally, I'm happy with EPCOT (yes, caps. I'm old skewl) the way it is. Please, Disney, don't try to turn it into a thrill park.
Monday, November 7, 2005 4:11 PM
I agree. I was disappointed Mission Space replaced Horizons. I enjoyed it, as did people of all ages. Honestly, I don't think I have the stomache to do Mission Space again....and I'm sure a lot of Epcot guests won't do it at all, or at least not a second time.

Despite being a coaster Junkie (and despite SPaceship earth needing an overhaul) I'm glad they didn't turn it into a launched coaster (Time Racers proposal)

Soarin, on the other hand is a WONDERFUL addition to the park. People of all ages enjoy it
