  • Blog Post: Looking back at the 2011 D23 EXPO: expectations vs. reality

    And how was your weekend? Mine contrasted sharply with last weekend. Instead of being inside of the brightly-lit Anaheim Convention Center surrounded by thousands of Disney fans, I was sitting in the dark here at home with Nancy, Alice and the cats.

  • Blog Post: WDI's "Carousel of Projects" looks to put a new spin on the D23 EXPO's Parks & Resort pavilion

    So what was the very best part of the original D23 EXPO ? To be honest, that depended on what aspect of the Walt Disney Company most excites you.

    Do you hear that squealing noise coming out of Burbank? That's the sound of Mouse House management stomping on the brakes.

  • Blog Post: Why For were there so few stories on JHM this week?

    I got a lot of e-mail this week similar to this note from Leonard S. Which says: Jim, Only four articles last week. Now only two articles this week. That's not the Jim Hill I know. The guy who posts five articles every week, even over the holidays. You feeling alright, Jim? Trouble at home? If not, what...

    Still having trouble wrapping your head around the idea that the Walt Disney Company just awarded Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts the rights to build a luxury hotel & 18-hole golf course on WDW property? Well, think about how the folks who actually run the resorts side of things of Walt Disney...
  • Blog Post: What was supposed to be built at Disney World during the "Disney Decade"?

    So -- what with all the hoopla surrounding that "Coming Home" commercial -- I decided to go check out disneydestinations.com yesterday. And -- as I'm poking around the site -- I come across the "Happiest Memories on Earth Timeline" . This neat feature which allows you to explore...
  • Blog Post: Another WDW might-have-been: Fort Wilderness Junction

    As regular readers of JHM already know, the history of the Walt Disney World Resort is littered with great what-might-have-beens stories. Terrific sounding attractions that never quite made it off the drawing board. Entire resorts that were all planned & ready to go, only to suddenly fall out of...
