    I could be wrong here, but I generally don't see postings by heads of Websites putting up Spoiler Warnings for something that isn't go to be there or Spoilers for on going construction, but I yield to your insight.

    On the bolded (I tried to italicize, but the whole thing already was) point...this isn't something that wasn't there. I am NOT claiming that it doesn't exist - it most certainly does, so I don't understand your statement. It's there, the reported on it. They didn't get into details.

    A Spoiler Alert is to prevent someone from reading something that might spoil a surprise for them. It doesn't matter whether it would be for something temporary or permanent. It is something that could still be a surprise to someone.

    All I'm pointing out is that AllEars stated that there was something different, and did not state that it was permanent, temporary, or otherwise, so hoping they are "wrong" doesn't make much sense. They could only be wrong if what they described didn't exist.

    All I was pointing out was I've never seen a well seasoned person put a Spoiler for something that was temporary, why would they worry about something that is about to change? That is all.

    I agree that nothing about the allears article implied it was permanent, they're just reporting whats there right now. Some people only get to go once every year or less, so even if it's temporary they may still appreciate not knowing the ending if that happens to be the exact time they're there (I for one had this ending last week and won't be back until august 2012 for example).

    Wow. I thought we had moved on but guess not. I wholeheartedly admit I did not parse apart the statement I posted. I previously admitted I have not seen spoilers for progress on a temporarily altered scene in an attraction.

    Once again this is how I made this grievous misinterpretation.

    but the only other changes I noticed so far have to do with the ending.

    I did not think through the "changes" above were being reported as temporary. You are indeed correct it did not imply Permanent and I did not read into the Alert or Changes as them being Temporary. I admit I missed that sentence as an indication of temporary.


    SPOILER ALERT: I admitted I never saw this prior for temporary. I still have yet to see this for a refurbishment in progress, but that is my experience, I just never saw a spoiler for a brief and non permanent alteration. Obviously others have experienced spoilers differently than I have.

    Stop reading now if you want to be surprised! I had never seen a warning for a change still in progress and only temp. Instead of the Hitchhiking Ghosts being projected in between you and your Doom Buggy partner, they are simply projected on a screen in front of you as you ride by. I missed true meaning that they are temporarily projecting on a screen. Another small addition: an arrow pointing to the left is projected onto the back of the Doom Buggy in front of yours as you exit, showing you which way to proceed. I mistakenly took the arrow also as a permanent change but I see again if I parse it, does not say permanent change or addition of an arrow permanently.


    What I've taken away from this...I need to parse updates for true meanings. I must read into what is being implied but not necessary stated. I should assume a reported change is temporary unless other wise stated as permanent. Lesson learned.

    Reading the same article, I would disagree. I don't see anything in there to suggest those awful screen projections that are currently there are permanant.

    Yeah, the article is about the tech they are still in the process of putting in, not the crappy digital projections on the tarps they are doing now - which they say is temporary right there in the article.

    Policy change (not stated as temporary or permanent):

    New wheelchair policy at Haunted Mansion begun yesterday - Now wheelchair guests can experience the stretching room - new corridor in place.

    This is a quote from the same article. Leads me to believe the animatronic ghosts at the end may be gone for good. This sounds more like adding the same style interaction the audience has with Crush or the Monsters at the Laugh Floor.

    “In one example, a dynamic image generated by display device 10 may comprise animated characters appearing in a combined image to interact with observer 14 or other individuals. In particular embodiments, such characters may be generated to appear as interacting with individuals by, for example, making eye contact with an individual, touching an individual, putting a hat on an individual and then taking the hat off, talking to the individual, just to name a few example. Again, such characters may be generated based, at least in part, on real-time information such as attributes of one or more individuals as identified above. In one embodiment, the type of character generated may be based, at least in part, on an apparent height, age and/or gender of one or more individuals co-located with observer 14 , for example.

    Just got back from WDW last night. The new ghost projections appear to be temporary. The screens they are projected onto are very poorly hung over the mirrors, which gives the impression that they won't be up for long.

    Love the nod to Ravenscroft. Classy touch I think!
