Sometimes change is good! As it is in this instance as the Walt Disney World company filed permits for the new addition to Tomorrowland; the addition of the Tron Cycle Roller coaster!
Some Disney fans may have seen video of the Tron Coaster, if you’ve been following what has been happening at Shanghai Disneyland. And over the last few months, there have been many rumors swirling around the changes at the WDW resort from the changes in Pirates of the Caribbean, to Star Wars and Toy Story Lands, and now it seems this will be another change that will take place. We’re really excited about this one. Not excited? Take a look at the video below and see if you change your mind.
Now for those that have been to multiple Disney locations, you know that there are differences in the attractions, even though they are the same. For example, Pirates of the Caribbean is a longer ride in Disneyland than it is in the Magic Kingdom at WDW. So, even though WDW is rumored to get the Tron Coaster, there are likely going to be some differences.
Now, nothing has yet been confirmed officially. However, if you take a look at the blueprint below, you can see what the intention is:
Looking at the blueprint, you’ll also notice that there is another change that may be coming to Main Street USA. It appears to be some sort of a theater that will be added (where titled “MK1”).
We’ll keep an eye on this to see what else develops! Let us know what you think!

This is something that’s been in the rumor mill for a long time now. A lot of POTC fans have voiced during the last year whether they agree or disagree with this change. However, it sounds as if this change is going to happen whether fans want it or not. The sensitivity around the inclusion of a “wench auction” has some fans stating that this change could not come soon enough. The change that will be brought about will still contain the “redhead”, albeit a different capacity as you’ll see in the artist’s rendering below:
Disney fans, over the years, have been forced to accept change to attractions throughout the WDW resort. And what fans should realize is that change is inevitable. We’ve seen many things change over the years. However, Disney still has a way to take the current changes and tie them to previous attractions of yesterday. For instance, you can still hear the theme to If You Had Wings if you listen to the music in Tomorrowland and on the Peoplemover.
What do you think of the new changes to POTC?

HI everyone! Sorry it’s been so long since we’ve had an update. For those of you that don’t know, we also run the site http://www.tatumpictures.com and have just finished shooting a Star Wars fan film. We’ve been in post-production for quite some time. But we haven’t forgotten the great folks that read the blog and listen to the radio station!
So, we wanted to ask the question. Is it too early to start incorporating Christmas music into our rotation? We’re starting to feel a little festive and want to start placing some music here and there. Will you love it? Will it bother you? We want to be fair to everyone so let us know what you would like. We’re happy you love the station.
Additionally, we have been toying with the idea of adding ride-throughs from Disneyland. After all, it is Magic Kingdom Radio. And the magic doesn’t just stop at the Walt Disney World resort.
We would love to get your opinion. So please, let us know your thoughts. And we’ll do our best to keep the blog current.

To be perfectly honest, this doesn’t surprise me. The Tomorrowland Speedway has been somewhat of a staple on the Magic Kingdom. However, it’s a little dated. This is often a popular attraction if you have children, but the TRON style rollercoaster could have promise. Only time will tell.
Here’s another, albeit small, change that seems to be happening at the WDW Resort. Some may remember the scents that they put in the showers. The scent of blushing orange combined with the signature Florida sulfur scented water. One of the things that the folks at Disney are good at is using our sense of smell to invoke emotion or a fond memory. Even if it is something as inadvertently using the smell of their bath scents to do the same job (not sure if it was intentional but it certainly does the job).
How do you feel about this change? Let us know what you think.
Many guests get extremely excited for the Disney themed bath products found in the guest room when staying at a resort at Walt Disney World. Disney uses H20+ brand of products in the guests rooms and the type and design of the H20+ that are used.

Little by little, remnants of the old EPCOT (or EPCOT Center for those who remember) seem to be slowly fading away. Many will remember attractions such as the World of Motion, Universe of Energy (before Ellen), Kitchen Kabaret, and other older attractions no longer there (if these don’t spark your memory, listen to Throwback Thursday on the radio station. Maybe it will jog your memory). And while we can all accept that things must and do change, it’s sad to think that one of EPCOT’s icons may end up being lost amidst the change. Of course, this is only conjecture at this point. However, Disney Dining tends to hear correct. Take a look and let us know what you think.
Walt Disney World frequently conducts research surveys to receive feedback and help guide new experiences and offerings that will be planned for the parks. Based on recent surveys to Epcot guests, it looks like Disney is trying to determine Figment’s overall popularity.

We’re actually inclined to disagree, here. But click the link and read the article yourself. Most of the references are for the Disneyland attraction. However, the same falls true for the same attraction in the Magic Kingdom at WDW. Let us know what you think. Sound off, mates!
The Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The attraction has a timeless appeal, and its greatest strength was its lack of storyline. But then, Disney added Jack Sparrow to the ride in 2006. Sparrow’s inclusion, and the intrusive manner in which it was done, detracts from what made the ride special.
