Every week our writers get together and answer a Disney-related question. Here is this week’s question and answers, leave your answer in the comments!
Question of the Week: Of all the items announced at the D23 Expo (Star Wars Land, Toy Story Land, Extensive models of Pandora (Avatar), Jungle Cruise Restaurant, Star Wars Fireworks at DHS, Shanghai Disneyland items, new Soarin’ Movie…) what has you most excited? Was there anything that you were surprised to be excited by?
Melissa L. – I think I am most excited about a jungle cruise restaurant! As many have probably heard, this is my FAVORITE ride and I can’t wait to see what they do with the restaurant!
Cassie – Toy story land is definitely my cup o’ tea! Both Astro Blasters and Midway Mania are so much fun I’m sure additional Toy Story themed attractions will be a hit!
Andrew – I was very happy with and excited about the concept art for Star Wars Land. The ambition behind it seems to be aiming for the stars (pun intended). I was surprised at how much I cared and was excited about Pandora (The World of Avatar). The model that they showed looks absolutely incredible and versatile. Before I was interested in if they could make a land that would be superb despite the franchise it’s based off of. Now, I’m just excited.
Kelsee – I think I’m most excited about the Soarin’ update. That’s one of my favorite rides and I’d love something new to look forward to. I have mixed feelings about Star Wars and Avatar. I feel a sense of “selling out” when I think of them dedicating all of this space and money to something that wasn’t an original Disney movie or concept. I know it’s a good choice for them financially, but it’s not what I would’ve liked to see them put their effort into for the parks. It kind of takes the exclusive Disney Magic away for me. I see the good points to it though.
What announcement has you the most excited? Let us know in the comments. We’ll have a full recap of the announcements as well as some reaction to it tomorrow.
