Re: Tokyo Expansion? Third Park?

This weekend the Japanese D23 Expo is on in Tokyo and there is to be a big Parks and Resorts announcement from there on Sunday evening US time (some time Monday afternoon for us).  It'll be interesting to see and hear what this presentation is going to unveil.  The official Disney Parks Blog will be...

Re: Today's Disney News from the front page...

I found this article and thought it hilarious... http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-disneyland-social-clubs-20180209-story.html Who knew that Disney fans could be so gangsta! I've never seen this phenomena before but I note they only really kicked off in 2013, so I haven't been there much since t...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX

I think these Star Wars Stories movies are all one-offs - just like Rogue One.  It would have been nice to do a series on Han Solo though - there are plenty of stories there I'm sure. And welcome RenaldoH to our little part of the Disney universe... :)  If you are in Sydney - feel free to come to on...

That's a lot of steps Greg!

I'm guessing you didn't go on any of the rollercoasters... :)

Re: Greg's Hong Kong Jan 2018 trip

This has crept up quickly.

I haven't been since 2014 but it is one of my favourite cities too. Let us know what is happening around the castle-I have seen any photos since the construction commenced.

Re: DL plus Hawaii

Hi Anthony. Thanks for your updates from your trip - sounds like you had a great holiday - especially at Aulani.  And I'm glad you finally got to Carsland too! Disappointed to hear about Legoland - it has always been on my to-do list, but I'll probably not go there now. I have to admit that crowds a...

Keith - you must have a great Lego room by now.

You'd think that but I only have two items - the Castle and the Falcon...I'll keep on working on it though as long as Lego and Disney continue to release collectors sets.

Re: Today's Disney News from the front page...

I see on the Disney Parks Blog this morning they are going to begin upgrading the World of Disney Stores in Disneyland and WDW.  Can't wait to see what they do.  My only worry is that they turn them into an electronic store like they've done with some of the Disney Stores (ShopDisney) - where they o...

Re: Anyone else playing Kingdoms?

Wow - I'm impressed you got the Queen. I was also on holidays and playing constantly but just didn't get any drops - like I said, I didn't even get a single ear hat in five days of constant playing! I love the home feature too - I'm like you - just a few characters to level from the recent events.  ...
