    Iron man monorail wrap debuts at WDW

    “Iron Man 3″ monorail debuts at Walt Disney World, bringing Stark Industries technology to Orlando | Inside the Magic

    Thoughts? I could've sworn they got in trouble for this last time with Universal...

    From my understanding the loop hole Disney found for The Avengers monorail was that as long as they only ran it on the Magic Kingdom loop because that loop doesn't enter any of the parks, so it could be considered transportation rather than a theme park attraction on a technicality.

    looks pretty cool, but just another moving billboard, wish they would have wraps of something other than this stuff which basically just makes a moving billboard

    Again a movie-based wrap... Tron, Avengers, Iron Man... Is their theme park not good enough for a wrap? (Don't answer that)

    Dunno why it irks me =P Probably because of how lame Disney's theme park related billboards around Orlando always are.

    As you said, it doesn't fit at all. Also, I think it would have been better if they just painted it with a sleek, modern design with the Iron Man colors if they were going to do it at all. Maybe with "Stark Industries", but besides that, I think literally adding the Iron Man image as well as the date just looks tacky. Soon May is going to be come and gone and then what? I just hope they remove it once a certain time is passed and not over stay it's welcome.

    If they wanted a "billboard", or advertise Iron Man, they could have just themed a Monorail to look as if it was made by Stark Industries and keep it at that, or at least to me personally that would be better, if they have to do it at all.

    That looks pretty cool
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    There is no room for suptlies. Disney needs to make sure people known this is a "Disney" film because they wouldn't known that watching any of the trailers or seeing any of the posters, which have Paramount's logo.

    Wrapping these bad graphics on a monorail because Disney needs to get its name out on these films seems like a sad and desperate attempt. Even with the graphic, when I first saw it I said why on earth would Disney have this on there monorails, it has nothing to do with them. Then later did I learn about Disney buying them out or whatever happened, just because a friend told me, not because of the monorail. I was thinking did universal buy advertising space on Disney monorails haha?

    I saw this in person on my trip last week and it looks awesome. Very well done.

    It makes me count down the days until I can finally walk into Innoventions in CA and see something worthwhile.
