Well, I didn't expect it would be Tokyo Disneyland that would do it, and "decent" certainly seems to be an understatement based on what we can expect from that video! :lol: :lmao:


Agreed! It's nice to see an attraction that concentrates more on sets and animatronics, rather than projections (although Disney does these better than anyone else, too).

Um, yeah, I get it, Beauty and the Beast ride looks incredible, but we KNEW that was going to be amazing!

Why are we not talking about "The Happy Ride" with Baymax!!!!??? Is it wrong that I am so excited for this even though I know it's just like a standard family spinning type attraction!!?

Those AAs look incredible. At one point in the video, I thought I was looking at a CGI version of Belle before realizing it was an AA. With this, Star Wars: RotR, etc, it's nice to see Disney doubling down on AAs, practical effects, etc, while so many other parks (cough cough Universal) are so screen focused. And if these and other recent WDI AAs are any indication, I can't wait to see all the stormtroopers in RotR.
Favorite Parks: Carowinds (Home Park), BGW, Any Disney Park, IOA, Family Kingdom (Myrtle Beach Classic!)
Favorite Steel (no order): Apollo's Chariot, Fury 325, Hulk, Mind Bender (SFOG), Space Mt (DL), Afterburn (Carowinds), Volcano
Favorite Wood (no order): Georgia Cyclone, Thunder Road (Carowinds...RIP), Swamp Fox (Family Kingdom), Woodstock Express (Carowinds...no seriously it's awesome), Thunderhead

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That was my exact thought when I saw those vehicles. It's unbelievable that this ride will coexist in the same park as Pooh's Hunny Hunt.

I was already hyped for this ride, but after watching that video I'm completely overwhelmed. Those are by far the most fluid and expressive animatronics I've ever seen. The range of emotions Belle displays in those 5 second clips is astonishing. And the ride vehicle looks like it'll be right up there with the EMV and SCOOP!! I really hope this opens as planned in the spring before my contract ends here in Japan! I will absolutely be there opening weekend in that case!!

I'm super excited for this too!! I love Baymax and he's such a natural fit for Tomorrowland! I'm assuming it'll be a clone of the whip style alien ride in Hollywood Studios' Toy Story Land, but it'll be new for Tokyo!!
