It is definitely not trackless. The boxes in the center are covering the bus bar for the ride.

Well, the vehicle itself may prove to be something, with it's own motion base, etc. Maybe?

Oooo the "Next Generation" of single, motion base vehicles! :airtime:

^Nice to see that Tangled is getting something more than just a toilet.

^Me too, I really liked that movie. Having the tavern in the park is a good idea.

^ & ^^ I think having more of Tangled and less of Frozen (gasp), is a nice change. :smile:

Ooo. Ooo. Could this be the Snugly Duckling Tavern? :)

(Although Frozen is getting an entire theatre and production of it's own...)

Stumbled across this piece when making the rounds today. Is there any validity to it? It reeks of the kind of rumor that you just pass by without reading, but it would be pretty unfortunate (in my opinion) if it were true.

Shanghai Disneyland is behind schedule and over budget, so Disney Parks will be looking to shave some money off their operational budget by cutting labor hours [and some entertainment options] at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.

Considering that the Dream Along With Mickey show at Magic Kingdom is being replaced instead of removed, I'm certainly skeptical, but I would definitely feel bad for the "little people" that work for the other parks if they were being directly affected by the Shanghai resort's apparent development troubles.

^Interesting that this comes up today after reading HKDL made a slight loss, hopefully Shanghai don't influence the other parks too negatively if it were true.

If you pay attention to the company, you will notice a string of cutbacks happening, most visibly from entertainment. Cutbacks happen when money is being drained. And Shanghai is coming into the home stretch, sucking money fast to finish the park.
