    I've been watching the development of this ride for a couple years now. It's a game changer in the industry.

    I had hoped to hold off a couple years to visit this park so phase II would be complete, but I don't think I'm going to wait that long.

    If it's you, then cheers. :beer: I liked the last thread on this subject a few months back. The one that included the Jurassic Park ride at Universal Studios or whatever. Sent me down a YouTube rabbit hole.

    Close. They're lifestyle bloggers. Disney now treats Disney bloggers to sneak previews and special parties in return for good press. They shipped a bunch of them over to check out Shanghai. The park doesn't open till June, actually.

    Not positive, although I have a contact I could ask.

    I'm guessing it's some sort of advanced "Pepper's Ghost" effect... Similar to how the large ballroom in the haunted mansion works. But that's just my fairly educated guess. The more videos come out, the more I'll be able to tell.

    more of this is needed in the US parks

    Ironically, the US parks are among the worst in the world now. Japan's parks are by FAR the best, followed by Hong Kong and Shanghai... Then Disneyland, then World, then Paris.

    Something you might find interesting about this pirates that you can't rally tell on videos... The boats aren't boats.

    They patented a new ride system that allows the boats to turn any direction or move up and down as they float along. So instead of a simple boat floating down a channel, these boats are attached to a track and they can be pointed certain directions via ride programming, or raised or lowered.

    It greatly increases story telling ability.

    It friggin BETTER be. Seas is amazing. Jaw droppingly amazing. In the morning I'll post a couple pictures from there.

    And Google "Sindbad's Storybook Voyage". Fucking awesome. Like a cross between small world and pirates, with hundreds (literally) of the most fluid AA robots you've ever seen, with music by the same guy that wrote The Little Mermaid (Alan Menken). I don't speak Japanese, and I can hum almost the entire ride soundtrack as we speak.

    I intended for Tokyo to be a once in a lifetime trip and I went back again just two years later because I loved it so much. I'll likely wrap Shanghai and Tokyo together on my next trip over there. Maybe even a second stop in Hong Kong at the same time.
