Happy Hauntings

Well, folks, it's that very special time of year again: Halloween. And what better time to talk about one of the greatest attractions in Disney history, the Haunted Mansion.

This truly is a great feat of Imagineering. Almost no other ride in the world has had such a timeless quality to it. The blending of humor and terror is absolutely genius and cannot  be found anywhere else. Riding the Haunted Mansion is enjoyable for guests of any age and has become a Disney tradition. So hats off to the 999 happy haunts that reside in the mansion, and may I be the first to wish them and all of you a very happy and spooky Halloween.

Conquer the Skies

What little kid hasn't dreamed of flying? Everyone wants to be able to be free to roam the skies. While Soarin' does a good job of recreating this experience, it isn't exactly what little kids daydream about. That's why I think WDW could use a jet airplane simulator called Conquer the Skies.

I never really liked the idea of Innoventions, but I believe this attraction would fit there perfectly. People could learn about the latest is aerospace engineering while finding out how to pilot an airplane. After a short pre-show going over the basics of aerospace engineering,  small group of guests would be shown how to work the simulator.

The simulator would be the cockpit section of a jet. It could fit two people in each cockpit, but there could be several lined up in order to increase capacity. Controls could include joysticks, buttons, switches, and pedals. This would essentially be a combination of Soarin' and Misson:Space.

What do you guys think? Too boring? Already been done? Or can't wait to ride it?

A Blog Update

So it seems that I let college overtake my life. I enveloped myself in my work and unfortunately let this blog fall by the wayside. However, now that I beginning to become comfortable with my new way of life. I am going to try my best to get this blog back in shape.

Right now I'm going to be playing with the layout of the site. I'm going to add some new features that will hopefully make the site more enjoyable.

I'm also going to be rolling out some new content. It will be slow at first, but once I get the site looking the way I want it, the content will be longer and more frequent.

Finally, I have created a new email for the blog. The email is: Please use this to contact me with any general comments about the site. Do you like the changes? What would you like to see in the future? What don't you like? Also feel free to email me with any ideas of your own. If you submit quality work, I will be more than happy to post here on the website.

So thank you all for reading and hope you enjoy your time here!! =)

The Future is Born

This is a momentous day in Disney History. On this very day 28 years ago, EPCOT Center was opened to the public. Walt Disney World was then changed forever. While it wasn't anywhere close to the magnitude of Walt's original dream, it was a gamechanger years ahead of its time. This isn't a story with a happy ending, unfortunately. But, that doesn't mean that the fat lady has sung on this dream. It's not too late to return to the old Epcot. In two years, this grand vision will be turning 30. What better time to go back to the future?
