You Know What Really Grinds My Gears?

Disney is really becoming a joke anymore. Perhaps just another sign we are living in clown world. 🤡

Drove on 295 today and I see Phil Murphy is already overracting to winter weather and overusing road salt.

I'm highly doubtful the governor makes the call on how much road salt to use and when to use it 🤣

He holds storm cabinent meetings and personally manidated for highly aggresive snow treating of roadways. Murphy himself stated he wecomes NJ "being the brining state of America," to his critics and sees nothing wrong with being overprepared and has promised to them that he will continue to have the state overprepare as that is how he will have things from now on.  Phil spent 38 milion on snow removal last winter, despite only having a 10 million budget and last winter being fairly mild with few snow events. So yeah, he has pushed NJDOT to go insanely overboard in an attempt to make himself look good.   

 

Excess road salt has many long term consequences, all of them really bad which is why it must be used sparingly.  Not dump a million tons for a fes furries that melted on the warm ground anyway. Last year, after being caught off guard by an unusually early snowstorm up in North NJ in Nov. NJDOT, under pressure from Murphy, salted roads for every little storm last winter, even for all rain storms with temps remaining above freezing. Very wasteful and reckless kneejerk reaction. Since you live in FL now, you missed all that fun in NJ last year. I dislike both parties so I am not try to push politics, I just don't like anybody damaging any of my cars, including the government.

Disney World reverting the beautiful New Tomorrowland back to the plain and boring Old 70's Tomorrowland. Such a waste, and they clearly are doing it because its the cheapest and laziest option.

Maybe Disney is thinking "everything old is new again". I grew up with that 70's version of the future so it doesn't affect me much.

The only other option would be a total renovation of the facades-like what KI did to their International Street. What if WDW closed down Tomorrowland for 2 months in the 0ff-season and re-did it in a "Blade Runner" style?-you know, in time for WDW's 50th anniversary in2021?

I don't think Tomorrowland needed another retheming, just refurb the current elements. Maybe even add more Art Deco elements to other parts of the land. A Blade Runner Tomorrowland would be cool, even all the neon  in the 1994 elements is inspired by Blade Runner. 

 

Couple of big issues I see with the revert are that Buzz Lightyear does not fit into the 70's themeing as well as the 50's. Especially as the ride contain 50's style tin robot toys which you shoot at. The other big issue is the big Art Deco arcade built by Space Mt, it will stick out like a sore thumb among reverted 70's styling. 

 

Tomorrowland was still in its original form when I was little and first visited WDW. I didn't like TL that much until they changed it in 94, I throught the 94 transformation was amazing.
