Actually, I'm no longer sure what I was asking about! Probably a replacement for Stitch? I realize the likelihood of any work being done now is quite low but I was wondering whether there might be some plans for the space (way) down the line.

Clearly not what he meant, but I know you have to shill.

Even in the darkest of times, miracles do happen.

Seemed like you were agreeing with me...that can’t be right

DVCakaCarlFOct 05, 2020

Elaborate?

SirwalterraleighOct 05, 2020

Ok...I think?

DVCakaCarlFOct 05, 2020

Yes and no...this is a pandemic, not a financial collapse: a lot more social systems involved. Usually, some sort of industry is “winning.” I wouldn’t call them “phoney” as much as “intervened.” It had to happen...the social structure of our society is already at its ends.

Sorry, wrong hotel...my fault.

Are we talking about donuts in the shape of Pom poms?

MisterPenguinOct 05, 2020

You can eat those pom poms.

SirwalterraleighOct 05, 2020

I know it’s football Sunday and you got your Pom poms...but here goes: 1. Were we talking about the past? Or was it talking about future development? Important I think. 2. And ALLLLL that great stuff (some of it sucks...but whatever) was built after they did NOTHING for a decade and actually closed things without replacement. All those things are catch ups on stagnating parks...which you know. So what happens if they puts the breaks on hard for another decade? Not so simple as the snark. Sometimes things aren’t as awesome on the surface as you might want them to be. Like box office grosses.

And yet....I gave you the prime example of why the theory may not work anymore. I’d submit that whoever is coming...is coming...they just go wait for flight of passage.

WondersOfLifeOct 05, 2020

I mean. I disagree with you. The hype on social media for new attractions is unreal. Wait times for Flight of Passage were still quite long all the way up until the pandemic.

When you have bought most of the stuff and done a lot of the work you add more risk to pausing mid-construction. Pause for too long and your permits will expire, meaning you will have to redo design work to the latest codes to finish the work, and depending on the scope remaining that could include having to redo work. So there’s a point where finishing is cheaper than pausing. Pop Century, The Legendary Years was not as far along, mostly consisting of shells with rather traditional fit out that could more easily be adapted when the time came to finish them.
