I am sad that Primeval Whirl is in a state of uncertainty I like that rideSeptember 16, 2019 at 8:52 pm #115935
Mine is little more involved. But short version:
I really don’t like how Disney adds way more accommodations for people that they cannot fit into the parks.
Something like 1100+ rooms getting added and what, honestly has been added attraction wise (without just replacing old things)?September 23, 2019 at 6:13 pm #116072

I do too, but it is a back breaker. I cant ride it any longer.October 7, 2019 at 7:39 pm #116368
This may be unpopular but Lefou’s Brew is disgusting!December 24, 2019 at 11:13 am #122270
This one’s going to get me burnt at the stake!
I was disappointed with Smuggler’s Run I think Star Tours is just as goodJanuary 2, 2020 at 3:20 am #122465
I prefer Its a small world to Haunted Mansion! Its close, but small world edges it outJanuary 21, 2020 at 8:00 pm #123442
i don’t know if this is “unpopular” but i wish disney would stop with the computer animated movies and leave that to pixar. the programs they use to animate the movies are constantly evolving and progressing, which yeah is a good thing, but then when you watch a movie from a couple years ago it looks kinda bad. i noticed this watching tangled the other night, and not that tangled looked bad, but after seeing such detailed visuals in toy story 4 and frozen 2 it definitely took away from tangled a little bit. i don’t know if i’m making sense but yeah lolMarch 31, 2020 at 10:51 am #128129
I’m not a fan of Test Track 2.0, I think it’s kinda meh. Sure I’ll ride it, but the last version was a must-do for me, this one I can take it or leave it.March 31, 2020 at 12:55 pm #128154

Same here. The pre and post show shows are cool but the attraction itself is just meh.May 14, 2020 at 12:17 pm #133619
This one has just came to me while watching the ‘live action’ Lion King…. Something that annoys me even more than the remake movies…
When they change the songs from the standard one. who ever asked them to change the Circle of Life? It needs to be the origional artist, otherwise it really ruins my nostalgia for the movieMay 20, 2020 at 4:35 pm #133963
Here is a hot-take…
I am not in a rush to get back to Disney after the gates re-open…
This one makes me very sad, as the ‘magical years’ of my kids are quickly escaping, and can never be recovered. But, there are too many rumors regarding how Disney will operate once re-opened, and honestly none are magical. I really need to see how everything shakes down before investing the time and money into a WDW vacation.
I can’t digest the idea that my children won’t be able to hug their favorite character. I’m nauseated at the notion that every ride, attraction, activity, movement we make will require a Fastpass. I’m deflated at the notion of having to search out markers for where to walk, where to stand, instead of searching out Hidden Mickeys. And nothing says magical family photo like sunglasses and facemasks completely obstructing all facial expression…
And before the criticism comes down, I get why they would be doing what potentially could happen. Anyone here who has interacted with me to any measurable degree knows what my professions are, and know I’m neck deep in the situation. But, doesn’t mean I have to like it. Doesn’t mean I have to agree with it…
I want to just ride it out a bit. See how Disney plays the hand. Do they go over the top and use the situation as leverage to further control guest’s experiences? Does it become near impossible (by design, regardless of crowd levels) for a family to do everything they may want to, in a realistic 5-7 day vacation? What is the guest experience going to be like? What level of magic will remain?
Let the wrinkles iron-out a bit, and then I’ll re-evaluate… and hope that my kids don’t grow out of the magic in the meantime.May 20, 2020 at 4:44 pm #133964
@RIDisneyPinGuy I don’t think your opinion is unpopular. I feel the exact same way. In short, if it’s not going to be a magical escape from the real world, I’m not interested. Disney must be germy at the best of times yet we all survive. I feel like they’re under pressure to be seen as going above and beyond, but I think it would be better if they just stayed closed until we can have a real Disney experience. Until we take a castle photo without a face mask, until we can enjoy a character breakfast, until we can high five a Cast Member on Main Street. This is why we go, take that all away and it’s pointless for me. 2020 is out for me.
Do they go over the top and use the situation as leverage to further control guest’s experiences?
I hate to say it, but I wouldn’t be surprisedMay 20, 2020 at 5:11 pm #133965
I don’t think it’s unpopular at all. If we didn’t have races planned, if we didn’t kind of have to go to this Wine and Dine because it is off the end of the month when my wife can’t take a vacation, we’d be taking a break too. I hate the idea of the possibility of only one or two parks being open, of very low capacity and maybe not even being able to get into a park, of having to take a Castle pic with a mask on, of not being able to meet characters, of it not being my escape from reality. My fear is similar to yours but more for me, not for growing out of the magic but because I don’t know how many years I have left. I don’t know how many years I and my wife will be in good enough physical shape to do the races, or God forbid even go to the parks. Tomorrow is promised to no one, and what I hate most of all is that all of this may be robbing me of my last visits to WDW, ever.May 20, 2020 at 5:24 pm #133966
@starbee you hit the nail on the head… it is about the experience. It is about being immersed in their world and forgetting the world outside. With out that, it is just another amusement park.May 20, 2020 at 5:26 pm #133967

I hope and pray this is not the case… especially since we haven’t met up down there yet (totally selfish reason, here )!
