Tower of Terror: Does everyone realize the ride itself is going to remain the same! Cosmetically yes the entire set design will be changed, but the actual ride experience will be the same as TOT. Remember the attraction before Goofys Sky school? The scene design changed but the ride itself remained the same. Considering Disney spent millions on TOT, do you really think they will change it up?

I was sad they are taking the theme away, but I am over it. They will change what they want. But the magic will always be there. Just makes for a good TBT post now lol. - Chumash28  1567.0 #117 4:19AM
This is a really great way to look at it. I agree with you that the magic will always remain.   - AngiMouse  155.4 #2718 10:02PM
Yes I realize. I like the spookiness and theme of ToT and have been a long time fan of the twilight zone. Guardians was an ok movie, not my cup of tea in general. I get why Disney is doing it but I'm still bummed and will always kinda be bummed about it. But I always have YouTube 😊 and I guess WDW if I ever decide to go there  - FoolishMortal138  518.2 #438 8:15AM
Do you think CBS was asking too much $$$ to renew the license or not offering to renew? - snappy  451.5 #523 3:23PM
I honestly don't know. I just wish if it was between the 2 parks, to keep ours twilight zone and have WDW side change there's since there's a lot less "Disney" there...like Avatar land  - FoolishMortal138  518.2 #438 9:21PM
I totally agree with you FoolishMortal138 Some of us like the spooky stuffπŸ‘» - Witchie77  390.3 #615 11:03PM
Honestly, I feel that the CBS licensing thing is a lie.  If they were asking too much money....  Why on earth is the WDW version staying intact?  That means they would have to renew it either way. - JediDug  302.1 #966 8:07PM
Right JediDug ?! I totally feel the same way. I don't like the new guy running the show and I've even left a complaint now, somethings never thought I'd do. I'm all for change, but some things just don't need it - FoolishMortal138  518.2 #438 9:07PM
FoolishMortal138 So true.  I am heartbroken by this, and cried when I saw the news was confirmed.  I never thought I'd only have 12 years of this ride in Anaheim.  It was the one building you could see from the Freeway (besides the Matterhorn) and it always made me so happy...  I truly hope lots of people are sending complaints so WDI gets a clue.  I signed the petition on change.org, but I know it won't make a difference.  Disney cares about the money...  Even if they do upset a large part of their fan base in the process... - JediDug  302.1 #966 8:08AM
I'm always up for change when it's necessary, but in this case TOT is/was a awesome ride! The entire setup from the moment one steps in is just AWESOME! Floridas version is beyond awesome and I can see why they are leaving it alone! Not fair! Just like Mull madness, all they did was change the signs and renamed theAttraction!  - snappy  451.5 #523 11:16AM
My take: plenty of people are bummed about this (myself included), and quite a few are very vocal. Β However, you can bet that once the new ride opens, it will be wildly popular, and a huge draw for DCA. πŸ˜‚ Β The mob is fickle, as they say. Β The new Frozen show is a great example of this issue--people complained wildly when it was announced, but sure enough, on opening day, the fastpasses were quickly gone, and rave reviews came in. Β Same will happen with Star Wars land, and same thing happened with many other repurposed DCA Yesterland rides/areas. Β People will get used to the idea, they will be curious, and the bandwagon effect will move in the opposite direction--I guarantee the lounge (and MANY other social media sites) will be flooded with pics and enthusiasm on opening weekend. Β Tons of people will even visit and ride the GotG ride, and not even realize it's different than before...its just the way it is, and Disney has very carefully calculated that the risk of upsetting people about losing an old favorite in the beginning is worth the financial benefit of adding a "new" thrill ride--and if rumors are true, an E-ticket for a new section of DCA in the long term. Β I'm personally sad to lose the old Hollywood, creepy feel of ToT, and I thought the idea was ludicrous at first, but (and I say this with remorse) it's business--ultimately, the financial risk of losing money from a few die-hard ToT fans (and let's face it: there will be very few people who feel strongly enough about this change that they completely stop spending money at Disney), is worth the financial gain of what they have up their sleeves. Β  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  649.0 #332 1:25PM
Well said!! We are the exception to the Frozen rule, we've boycotted it. We told cast members of our stance when they asked if we'd seen it, they smiled and said they don't see it lasting as long as Aladdin. They think when the new wears off it won't be very popular.  - GoofyMom77  1020.9 #200 1:45PM
Thank you!  I don't think we will watch Frozen either, at least not in the near future, for various reasons - Spoonful_O_Sugar  649.0 #332 2:00PM

Need advice! Last Year my wife bought 6 Premium passes after Disney announced their new Annual pass structure. So far we've used 4 of them to renew and Disney has been great in extending them to the Signature Plus! We need to unload one since we do not need it. Pass needs to be activated by Dec 31, 2016. Any ideas how we can sell it? Thanks! I believe she paid $779.00

I would be careful about Craigslist and eBay. Craigslist you don't know who you are meeting and if they are legit. Ebay/Paypal has lots of fees so it's expensive. Hopefully someone on MW can benefit. I sold one of my extras last year to a MWer. Just be careful. Disney doesn't "allow" selling of anything on their property. Even for cost.  So if you meet someone on property, just be discrete...or sell just outside of property. Good luck. - DLKenCA  2941.4 #51 9:14AM
I may be interested in that pass DM me if still available - R2Me2  68.8 #4347 11:54PM

Wife put this together. Added the old So. cal Gas Company private party ticket stubs from our yearly visits, thanks to grandpa. Back in the day! Great memories! Can you guess the attraction we're waiting for?

My mom worked for Northrop so we went every year on Northrop night. They closed the park to everyone else and just let us all in & we all had the park to ourselves! Can you imagine them doing that now? Ah, the good old days! - debbiev  1474.4 #126 10:37PM

Happy or sad? Spent the day at Legoland Carlsbad, and while driving home we asked our kids (6 & 3) Disneyland or Legoland? Both screamed Legoland. A family of 4 annual passes would be far less than one of our 1 premium passes..

Mixed feelings. My son (age 11) is obsessed with LEGOS! (My husband also has quite a collection!) He's been to LEGOLAND  twice & while he had a blast, LEGOLAND  is nowhere nearly as organized (or clean) as Disneyland. It is way cheaper. (Loved their BOGO deals!) LEGOLAND doesn't have enough to keep everyone entertained and happy to justify APs for our family. Even my son agrees with this. Disneyland & Disney are just to special and nothing ever come close to them. - DisneyHeidi09  264.6 #1291 10:06AM

Can someone post a picture of the lineup of cars entering. Thank you

I don't have a pic but in Toy Story lot the drive in the lot was easy and quick but the line for the bus is pretty long. Took about 10 minutes to board. For as many people there were it wasn't too bad of wait. - ElectricMayhemMom  1716.6 #105 11:12AM

How early do you need to get to Mickey and friends parkade to get a spot? - quote  165.0 #0 7:53PM
There is not time per say, because they open and close it throughout the day to improve traffic flow around the parks.  - sawman911  3346.5 #48 8:02PM
So if we show up at park opening we should be able to get a spot? - quote  165.0 #0 8:09PM
What happens is they'll fill a floor or two then close the structure and divert you to toy story or simba. If you come back in about a half hour or so though they'll open the structure again once enough cars go to the other lots. It's called pulsing, they do it all day. It's just hit or miss during the holidays but not closed too many times early morning. Race days are different though, that's this weekend.  - secretagentangel  8060.1 #11 8:36PM
We're planning on hanging out at Downtown Disney after the park closes and hoping to park at Mickey and friends. Toy story would be a long walk.Β  - quote  165.0 #0 10:13PM

It's been crazy busy at the parks since Disney modified/increased the AP's? Anyone else notice this? I know several families who are not renewing and are visiting the parks every weekend possible.

I think it's mainly because of the Halloween party's during this month, it has been very popular. Last weekend was the most pack I've seen due to the chalk walk and MW birthday bash going on. On Sunday there were lines everywhere from getting to the parking structure, shuttles to downtown Disney, lines through the security, lines getting in the park, and then any rides at the time were about 60 min plus. On top of all that the heat was not helping much, hope it starts to cool down soon πŸ‘»πŸŽƒπŸ’€ - Brucele11  114.0 #3445 10:28PM

There's no point in reading this article in my opinion. Personally he deserves what he gets paid. When "you" can make, make or break, choices that directly affect the viability of a National Icon like Disneyland and one or two bad choices could cause a massive down turn for thousands of employees and shareholders and millions of fans. And you have to worry about that on a daily basis. Than 'you' could make that salary, frankly he can and whoever follows him can keep that job cause I wouldn't want to willingly take on that stress. πŸ˜‚ - Donaldfan_532  248.7 #1440 8:56AM

After this weekend of Annual Pass changes at Disneyland I was thinking how many of us will actually stop buying the passes no matter how much they cost, added block out dates, and other detourants the Disney Executives might impose? Does anyone have a threshold on their max in $$$ for a pass? I'm sure Disney monitors these sites to gain insight. Personally I don't see the number of AP'ers going d  More...

I bit the bullet and renewed. Monthly payment price is now 133 for 2, so for me it will be less Starbucks to account for the difference. - ThinkTink23  50.4 #4968 8:16AM

secretagentangel I wonder when it is time for me to renew(I have one premium) if they will give me an early renewal discount towards the price of one of the Signature passes? - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2300.3 #73 1:07AM
I read before yes you'll get your discount if you stick with signature. But in the past , if you down grade, then you lose the discount. Now I can't access the site. 😜 - secretagentangel  8060.1 #11 1:15AM
I don't get it either! Yes they need $$$ for expansion, yes the parks are filled with AP mostly Premium, so creating this new AP system will make things better? And I'm sure Disney wants us to think it's because of the new expansion, but I think the city of Anaheim is pulling rank!  - snappy  451.5 #523 1:21AM
Seems like a strange time to raise prices when many rides will be down for the new expansion. Paying more for less. At least they still have APs. Surprising they didn't do away with those entirely. - snowgrey  8.0 #13549 10:36AM
