    Re: Bring Back Spectromagic

    Spectromagic is not coming back. Ever. It has been crushed this week and is in a half dozen or so dumpsters backstage after being demolished by forklifts. One float remains that is presently being cannibalized.

    RIP
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    For those who were a fan, a Spectro final fix.

    Haha. Disney sure has a way of making sure things don't come back from the dead, don't they?

    Indeed. One of my personal favorites was the bulldozers smooshing buildings in DTD making way for the long anticipated Wharf. They did spread some lovely grass seed in their wake.

    Which would explain this year's price increase.

    Who knew they were charging for DTD?

    Looks like the "Springs" project is underway, though.

    Do it twice and it is going to cost ya. All the imagineering into the Wharf and they got grass seed for it.
    Now round two imagineering, Springs. It does explain why admission prices are outpacing inflation. Don't forget Disney had to reimagineer FLE and dump Fairyland then DTD debacle, they have to make up expenses somewhere, it isn't going to be the shareholders, so it falls upon the guests. And who the heck knows how many times they have messed with the ever elusive Avatar.

    Read more today about how Spectro was stored on property. It explains why it is in the dumpster.

    FLE and Avatar are the big ones to me.

    Magic Kingdom is a difficult place to invest. You can't get a big attendance bump to pay for the investment because it's the #1 theme park in the world. If you want even a 5% bump in that park crowd levels are going to be insane.

    As for Avatar, how much money are they going to pour into planning and re-planning that land? They have to be millions upon millions deep in it and they still don't have anything to show! And now they have Star Wars that is just waiting like a baby bird holding its mouth open for them to start pouring money into it.
    I've never had any doubt that Avatar was coming, but I'm starting to wonder now...

    Not charging. Just covering costs
