--Universal Down There was an article in today's Orlando Sentinel on the New Disney's Animal Kingdom ride "Expedition:Everest". But the ride wasn't as interesting as the info on the attendance numbers given for both Disney and Universal. To read the article, follow the link below.

Plus, I am thrilled to see the buyout of Pixar by Disney. I believe it will lead to some better films after Disney's recent animated flops. It's amazing how great things happen simply by changing leadership (i.e. Eisner... hmmm.)I hope some of the creativity creeps over into the theme parks--somehow.

The detail of the new ride looks great:

The queue might be up with "Tower of Terror" in level of detail from what I hear.

Disney *has* been doing better lately in attendence than other parks... I've seen some speculation that falling Universal attendence may be because Universal hasn't added much to IOA. Although the Studios gained "The Mummy", it lost Jaws and Kong... further making it more of a "thrill" destination. I love Universal... but it seems to have less of a draw among my friends at the moment since they went there last year and have "seen it". I wish they knew if people coming to each park were local or out-of-state... I think that those attendence figures would tell you something.

The buyout could be good... Disney has seemed interested letting Pixar keep their corporate culture intact. I think the buyout makes Steve Jobs that biggest stockholder (which will likely have fall-out in the creative divisions). It also puts John Lasseter as a sort of creative consultant to Imagineering, and liason to Bob Iger... Hopefully this will mean improvements to morale and creative culture at Imagineering... Time will tell!
