Tickets never went on sale.

If Destination D does indeed get moved to 2021 like they had said. Does anyone know if tickets to that event were previously sold out? Although at this point I could see them turning it into a virtual event.

Finally some good news.

Just as well. Realistically under the circumstances they wouldn’t have been able to announce much. They need time to re-evaluate projects. The unfortunate part is many were hopeing for 50th Anniversary announcements.

Are they going to axe the expo? While they’re at it just shut the whole thing down

Sad to read the news, but not surprised. Glad the event is still planned for a future date.

@marni1971 confirmed recently (if I understood him) that there was a competition between DHS (Indiana Jones ride) and DAK/Epcot (Jungle Book ride) to get dibs on the Shanghai POTC tech and the winner was... no one, as it was deemed too costly. And we guests sadly get nothing. I really hope this isn't like LPS trackless where the domestic parks don't get a new tech for many years after it was developed.

You’re thinking of the Jungle Book ride at Animal Kingdom or EPCOT.

Wondering that to.

You are a man/woman of science and knowledge.

Wasn’t there discussion a while back that a ride using the Shanghai pirates system was being pitched for WDW? And then I seem to remember that getting shelved.
