Park Ride History

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 […]

Kitchen Kabaret and Food Rocks | Keep Epcot Weird Ep. 3

In this episode of Keep Epcot Weird we’ll be taking a bite out of Kitchen Kabaret, an opening day animatronic stage show at 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 […]

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 Dueling Dragons | Islands of Adventure

Dueling Dragons was a set of B&M inverted rollercoasters located in the Lost Continent section of Islands of Adventure. The attraction quickly gained notoriety as well as a sizable following among coaster enthusiasts shortly after it’s debut in the park. This video compiles the attraction’s 18 years worth of development and updates, leading up to […]

The History of & Changes to ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter | Magic Kingdom

One of the most adult attractions ever brought to Magic Kingdom, Alien encounter was Disney’s most ambitious and innovative show ideas. It later proved itself to be a little too ambitious and closed after 8 years of operation due to it’s ongoing controversy.

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 […]

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) […]
