This is great i just can't wait to see and ride the finished product. The rest of new fantasyland has looked amazing so far I can't expect this to be any less especially when they have taken this long on this particular thing.

Oh, very exciting! I only wish it would be done by December because I'm not sure when we're going to be back due to TTC after our December trip. Lol. I'm so selfish sometimes when it comes to Disney.

20 years ago when they talked about the "information age"...I'm not sure it was all encompassing.

But if they got the construction guys from universal, it might look like it is from universal.

its probably intentional...

whether that's true or not...i like to think that this idea is growing in public opinion.

It would be nice for management to know that the public is catching on:

these projects arent long due to "world class, one of a kind, storytelling and detail"...they are so because the longer it takes, the less gets built on the whole and they can suck $95 a person per day for 5+ years as they point to "look at all the money WE'RE SPENDING ON YOU!"

yeah...Candyland

I completely agree with you lockedoutlogic and think that part of the daft Avatarland announcements (where they actually announce nothing really tangible) is to give the IMPRESSION that theyre matching Universal for investments.

Like you said, the longer they string it out- the cheaper it works out for them. We all now that doing a job quickly costs more. Disney manages its PR really well buti think more and more people are cottoning on to their lack of new investment in their Florida parks.

beer-Dave - that's the strangest thing I've heard. it doesn't matter where the construction workers come from, it's the design and theming that says whether it's Disney or universal!

Well in my limited construction experience, the PM who rushes the Super to rush the subs who rush the general laborers turn out a lesser quality project.

Art takes time.

and

I once knew a man with wooden legs and real feet.

I didn't want to disappoint you and not post the strangest thing you have ever heard. Clearly (?) this is stranger than my other post.

I would like to think I have now raised the bar for strange things you have heard. In my next post I will have a hard time beating this one.
