  • Blog Post: Why For wouldn't J.K. Rowling let Universal Studios build a Harry Potter stunt show?

    No doubt, you've heard this rumor before. It's the story that's been fascinating Disney and Harry Potter fans for the past few weeks. But it was H.C. who did the best job with this question when they wrote in to ask: Every once in a while, Universal Orlando President Bob Gault holds a "Lunch...
  • Blog Post: Never mind "Captain EO" -- what about "Captain Eeyore" ???

    You know, it's getting harder and harder to predict what's going to set you guys off. Take -- for example -- Last Friday. As part of my most recent "Why For" column , I answered a reader's question about "Captain EO." To be specific: A query about whether this 17-minute long 3D spectacular was ever going...
  • Blog Post: Much Ado about Pooh

    Even though Disneyland's new "Winnie the Pooh" ride has already opened for several months now, I'm STILL getting e-mails like this: Dear Jim: I just got back from Anaheim and wanted to write to let know you about how shocked & appalled I was with Disneyland's "Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh"...
  • Blog Post: "Holiday" coming? "Food" on its way out? Clones curtailed?

    There's good news for Tim Burton fans. Disneyland's much acclaimed seasonal show -- "Haunted Mansion Holiday" -- is reportedly heading to WDW's Magic Kingdom in 2004. According to reliable sources, "HMH" -- a Christmas-themed show which entirely changes the style and tone of Disney's venerable "Haunted...
  • Blog Post: "Space" sickness OR "Mission: Space" scrubbed. Repeatedly. With disinfectant.

    Maybe this really isn't a story that you should be reading first thing in the morning. Particularly if you're still eating breakfast. Still, there's some rather intriguing news coming out of Orlando these days. Word that WDW executives are going very concerned that "Mission: Space" -- Epcot's yet-to...
  • Blog Post: Can Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" avoid a grizzly fate at the box office?

    Ah, what a difference almost-a-year makes. Some of you may recall how in late July 2002, Disney's "The Country Bears" opened in theaters nationwide. This Walt Disney Pictures production got absolutely hammered by the critics. Grossing only $16.9 million during its entire domestic run, "Country...
  • Blog Post: Does the arrival of the "X Games Xperience" signal the start of DCA's turnaround?

    First, an apology / explanation. For the past couple of weeks, JimHillMedia.com has been kind of a Jim Hill free zone. Oh, sure, you guys have had plenty of great new stories from Jim Korkis, Chuck Oberleitner, Roger Colton and the rest of the crew. But as for me ... well, there'd be an occasional book...
  • Blog Post: Never mind Big Brother watching you. What about "My Pal Mickey?"

    Okay. By now, JimHillMedia.com readers are no doubt aware of "My Pal Mickey." (After all, this site actually broke the story on this hi-tech wonder back in December 2002.) That 10-and-a-half inch tall plush that -- thanks to its on-board sensors -- can tell WDW guests all sorts of interesting things...
  • Blog Post: I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you ...

    We got so much great mail from you folks last week that "Jimmy Neutron's NickToon Blast" article . People writing in just to tell us how refreshing it was to have a site that usually just reports about the Walt Disney Company saying such nice things about an attraction at a competing theme park. Well...
  • Blog Post: "Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast" is a blast for theme park fans

    I'll say this much for the folks at Universal. They obviously learn from Disney's mistakes. Don't believe me? Then take, for example, all the negative publicity that the Mouse generated due to the awkward way the Walt Disney corporation handled the closure of WDW's "20,000 Leagues" submarine attraction...
