    All I can say is this is an unfair and irresponsible statement. There are those that know the facts and those that don't and can only speculate.

    Re: Spoiler Alert! Mystic Manor POV ! Magnificent Special Effects!

    Looking at the pictures, it seems that the Adventurer's Club is the biggest disappointment. Not because it isn't the original from WDW, but because it looks like, in terms of layout, the Royal Banquet Hall in Fantasyland. Can anyone confirm if this is indeed the case?

    I'm more excited now at the prospects of plussing the attraction in the future, since they're using projections in some cases. A Haunted Mystic Manor perhaps in Halloween?

    Re: Spoiler Alert! Mystic Manor POV ! Magnificent Special Effects!

    I am also a bit disappointed at the Explorer's Club Restaurant! they went for a cheapie version instead of a grand classy restaurant! What a big let down. Some people suggest that it should be called backpackers' club restaurant! Wakakakakaka

    perhaps most of the budget went into mystic manor, the attraction....

    Roger -- I am not trying to be unfair and irresponsible. I have a lot more faith in the SARCOS animatronics than Garner Holt's, and my perception is based largely on the Fantasmic! Dragon debacle.

    Where can I go on the Internet to learn the "facts"?

    In general I wouldn't go anywhere on the internet to learn the "facts" on these types of situations.

    I've heard Garner Holt in person explain the situtation with the dragon the best he could in a public forum. It wasn't someone quoting or paraphrasing him.

    There are many examples of things Garner Holt has built that have been very successful. More than maybe you are aware of. The dragon was just one case where things did not go smoothly in the begining due to whatever reason. It shouldn't be used to condem the man and all of his work.

    Take a look at the company's website and judge for yourself how many of the projects you see represented there can be perceived as a blemish to the company and how many represent a feather in the company's hat.

    Re: Spoiler Alert! Mystic Manor POV ! Magnificent Special Effects!

    I'm really digging on this addition. I've never seen such top notch animatronics in a Disney park (well, with the exception of Journey to the Center of the Earth, Sindbad's Storybook Journey (or is it Voyage?), Ursula in the Mermaid rides, and some others. Nonetheless this is fantastic. And I really love all the references and tributes to other attractions not featured in Hong Kong Disneyland. Medusa's there, it seems as if right after Medusa the busts that follow guests' movement are there, and the singing tiki totem poles from the Tiki Room are there. Fantastic.

    Re: Spoiler Alert! Mystic Manor POV ! Magnificent Special Effects!

    ORWEN: I was just wondering if all of us, here on Mice Chat, might be able to plan a group trip over to Hong Kong Disneyland to see this new attraction together? I could help out with the flight plans 'cause I can conjur up as many broom sticks as we need. Would the rest of you be able to supply the cauldrons and Krispy Kreme donuts???

    This assortment is awesome!!! It's just a shame that there isn't any Shiriki Utundu merch. Hopefully this picture isn't the final assortment.
