Comments for Inside the Disney Parks pavilion: How Imagineering successfully skirted big announcements at the 2013 D23 Expo


  1. Great recap of the pavilion, Ricky!

    Just a small note: Museum of the Weird wasn’t a precursor to the Mansion. It was developed side by side, when Rolly got bored with all the typical “haunted house scares” they were developing after the World’s Fair. It was meant to be experienced at the END of the Mansion, on the way out.

      Thanks. Indeed, “precursor” was probably not the right word to use. I know the concept was intended at one time as a queue / pre-show area as well. I’ve updated the article to reflect as such. Either way, I am looking forward to the comic book!

    I like that subtle little jab you put in there alluding to “Limited Time Magic”. I would bet good money that most Disney fans found the impromptu Dreamfinder and Figment meet and greet FAR more magical than any of the offerings Disney has managed to not promote during this promotion!

    1. I don’t think the something weird is what you’re expecting. I think it has something to do with Marvel’s Weird Wonder Tales comics. Supposedly, a link said it was based on Marvel comic books, not a comic book based on a Disney attraction. If you look at the picture of the clock with the devil face, it actually seems to be Dr. Druid who narrated the Weird Wonder Tales. I think it may be some type of attraction based on this series.

        Believe what you will, but just remember where you heard it first… 🙂

      Indeed. So far, it’s been heavy on the “Limited Time” and light on the “Magic.” There have been a few exceptions that were spectacular, but most were silly and small.

    That guy with the ear ring and the 12-inch long ear lobe gives the impression that the current crop of Disney imagineers are just wierd. That ear ring makes him look like he’s from a primitive tribe in a region that has been isolated from civilization for centuries rather than the educated nations of the world, and there probably aren’t many of those tribes left with the Internet and mass communication. In other words, the ear ring looks wierd and there’s really no excuse for it, unless you make the argument that Los Angeles is descending into paganism and darkness.

  6. Valuable info. Fortunate me I discovered your website by chance, and I’m surprised why this coincidence did not happened in advance!
    I bookmarked it.
