That's kind of exciting, if they think they will be doing something that will take a long time to construct. I can't wait to be there in just over a month!

    I was under impression construction would begin at the same time but would take longer on Mystic Point and Grizzly Gulch. Because these are far more advanced attractions than setting up a bunch of Toy Story themed Carnival rides. Looking at how quickly this thing is being built at the Studios in Paris I could certainly believe this to be the case too!

    This dinky little place has the potential to fall into the cracks between the wonder that is TDR and the upcoming(?)Shanghai park.

    I am sure some Disney stooge errrrr, I mean exec would justify it with the usual, that would give more people a chance to visit while continuing the mission statement of the core company capex KPI balance sheet price point quarterly stock market directive.


    You're right Witchiepoo. at this point there's only one word for all these cutbacks delivering inferior product(that means MASSIVE expenditure in six years time when the initial investment fails),


    Lame.

    LP isn't perfect, least of all the people running it but its format is clean and tidy and I like clean and tidy.
