The History of & Changes to The Haunted Mansion | Disneyland

The Haunted Mansion is one of Disney’s longest running and most popular dark rides. Since it’s grand opening in 1969, the attraction has become an iconic piece of Disneyland. Thanks to everyone who suggested this video as well (sorry but there’s just too many of you guys to mention everyone by name in the video) […]

PRH 2019 Update [READ DESC]

Hey kids, Jack again. Apologies in advance for another “blog post” instead of just talking for the update video. Honestly, typing this all out is just a lot quicker than going through the whole rigamaroo of recording and editing a video. Especially since I’m just explaining a few things. Don’t worry, I’ll try and keep […]

The Differences Between: Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean

Out of the many version’s of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, the version at the Magic Kingdom has always stood out to me as one of the stranger examples of a cloned Disney attraction. Specifically, the lack of similarities those two attractions have despite being made within a few years of one another. In this video […]

The History of & Changes to Maelstrom (OLD VERSION) | Epcot

PRH 2018 Update [READ DESC]

Hey kids, Jack here. Apologies for making you have to read all this instead of just listening to it. I just wanted to get this info out as soon as possible and having to record it a few hundred takes so the audio sounds good would take too long (plus I’m currently about waist-high in […]

The History of Leave a Legacy (The Epcot Stones)

In this brief “history of” video, we talk about the Leave a Legacy program and it’s sculptures that can be found in Epcot’s entrance plaza. We also discuss how and why they got there, and what their future might look like within the next couple of years. Twitter_ https_//twitter.com/ParkRideHistory Song Used_ • Epcot | Entrance […]

The History of & Changes to Maelstrom (Frozen Ever After) | Epcot

The long awaited “Remastered” version of The History of & Changes to Maelstrom video. I had been meaning to remake the original video for some time now, considering the fact that it was my first video and didn’t exactly hold up quality-wise compared to some of my more recent ones. Now completed with even more […]

A Tribute to Disney’s Community of Tomorrow (The Origins of EPCOT Center)

Epcot has been my favorite Disney World park for quite a while now, but what I’ve always found more fascinating than the park is it’s backstory, and how when it was first conceptualized, wasn’t even meant to be a theme park. This tribute video traces back the idea to Walt Disney, then follows it’s evolution […]

The History of Horizons – (Mission: SPACE) | Epcot

Undoubtedly Epcot’s most popular demolished attraction, Horizons was a omnimover dark-ride housed in it’s future world section. Despite it’s late 90’s closure, Horizons remains a favorite amongst Epcot enthusiasts. Bonus Info: The submarine prop at 7:44 has since been removed, exact whereabouts are currently unknown: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C-CFd5HXoAAaNcQ.jpg Song’s used: • Epcot Horizons Musical Score: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnF72apxwyc • […]
