Here's What Theme Park Fans Are Talking About This Week

February 19, 2023, 4:51 PM · Last week, Theme Park Insider revived its Discussion Forum, and I would like to thank everyone who stopped by to browse and to participate in the new threads there. In case you missed it, here are some of those new threads on the forum.

Roll Call: Who has worked for a theme park?

We started the board by asking anyone who has worked for a park at any point to answer our roll call. If you are - or ever have been - a theme park industry insider, here is your chance to let us know and share a favorite story or two.

Billion Dollar Question- will Critter Country at Disneyland be annexed into New Orleans Square?

Splash Mountain is closed now at Walt Disney World' Magic Kingdom but remains open at Disneyland... and probably will until the revamped Mickey's Toontown reopens March 19 and Disneyland can reassign construction resources across the park to work on the Tiana's Bayou Adventure project. But that's not stopping Theme Park Insider readers from thinking ahead and considering the future of the rest of Splash Mountain's Critter Country land.
