  • I’d love if MK in WDW would replace the Tomorrowland speedway in similar fashion. There are way too many clouds of exhaust that hit you as you walk by.

  • I was wishing that you can add soarin will arrive at tokyo like tokyo disneysea since couple years ago, just like at epcot and disney california adventure that was original.

    Where will the big hero 6 located? I was hoping for now that the big hero 6 ride will be in both disneyland and Walt disney world too.

    • Oh trust me they’re smart. This is peanuts compared to Star Wars land. It is in essence pretty sad that they’re getting 5 new attractions 4 of them being very good, but Walt Disney World by 2020 based on what has been announced will get at least 7. Though Frozen is a d-ticket & Soarin’ is just an updated version of an already there attraction. Don’t be surprised though if one opens at Magic Kingdom by 2020 as well. Star Wars is the biggest franchise in the world, so by you not liking it you are in the increasingly narrowing minority. Even my grandmother is starting to give in to Star Wars although she has never even had interest.
