Welcome to the weekend, my friends! Where applicable, don’t forget to turn your clocks back tonight. Just your friendly reminder!
Hey! The fact that this particular attraction came up in our last conversation at the WDW Main Street Pub got me to thinking … just how old are all those bugs?
It’s Tough to Be a Bug! – which I mistakenly kept referring to on the show as ‘It’s a Bug’s Life’ – is based on the 1998 Disney-Pixar film “A Bug’s Life”. The WDW attraction, itself, opened seven months before the movie dropped – on April 22, 1998.
Wow. Almost twenty years old? Already? Hmmm. That piece of information got me to thinking further … should the show be near to the end of its run?
Let’s consider … the movie was pretty successful. Yet, at the same time, the characters aren’t exactly counted amongst Disney’s mainstream. The Tree of Life is a park icon. Shouldn’t it house an iconic attraction? Again, hmmm.
Hey, how about a Zootopia attraction? Just a thought. It was one of the highest grossing animated movies in history, after all.
So, referring back to the post’s title, what’s this “rehabilitation or elimination” thing all about? Well, if your new to All in WDW, folks, open up your imagination, because it goes something like this …
Welcome to the The Walt Disney Company, my friends! I hope you are enjoying your “career” in Disney’s design and development division – Walt Disney Imagineering!
As you know, WDI is responsible for the creation and construction of Disney theme parks worldwide, and we need your help!
Tap into your creativity. Imagine that you’re an … Imagineer! Yes! In fact, in today’s case, you’re a “re-imagineer”!
It’s Tough to Be a Bug! Should we rehabilitate? Leave the theme alone, but give it a bit of a facelift, maybe? Should we eliminate? Replace it with a new attraction altogether? Or, should we simply leave it completely alone?
Your task, today, is a two-part job. First, what’s your vote? Second, if you want to rehabilitate, what do you suggest we do? If you want to eliminate, what should take its place? What’s your “Project Plan”?
Leave your comments on this post, on Facebook, or on Twitter, my friends! This is what we do. It’s Imagineering. It’s “Re-Imagineering”! We need your help! Now, get to work!
