    I’m glad to see the Radiator Springs Racers Fast Pass terminals taken out. That location for Fast Passes was never practical. Even if in a year or two the crowds die down, it’s still not a good location.
    It’s much better to utilize the terminals for It’s Tough To Be A Bug. It keeps the Fast Pass crowds away from the ride…and Cars Land in general.
    And let’s face it, from the day it opened, there was never a need for Fast Passes for It’s Tough To Be A Bug. So it’s finally time for them to get some use out of them.

    Thanks Andy for being vigilant regarding the cheapening of the Buena Vista window displays, as well as the guest paper cups/napkins. It seems since the 80′s a culture of greed over quality /appreciation of Walt’s genius has permeated corporate Disney. The Penny Arcade being another recent example, and apparently the removal of the Tomorrowland subs to follow shortly. Thanks for your watchful eye and I urge everyone to register their complaints at Guest Services at your next visit regarding any cheap and greedy changes whenever they occur. For starters there’s cheapening of the Buena Vista window displays, the Penny Arcade, and imminent removal of the Tomorrowland subs. If no one complains, no doubt greed will trump quality in the future. These greedy corporate bean counters have NO appreciation for the Disney Magic beyond its money making potential. Sickening, isn’t it?

    Here is my list of thoughts (no particular order):

    I would not give up on having the windows change back just yet.

    Just wait for crowdes to come up, I garentee there will be Fastpass for when the real holidays start.

    Why do they keep referbishing the Mad Hatter? Did they not just do it last year?

    I am glad there is actual progress for Earl of Sandwich, If this restaurant was inside one of the parks it woud have been done with it months ago. Just saying…

    Is there any new makeover for our Tomorrowland in the rumor mill because it is needed desperatly.

    The park cups and bags may or may not be anything at the moment, I could be that they did not print enough until the new term. The only way we can see is in January after the holidays besides this summer they launched in some of the retail locations merchandise those popcorn boxes and cups. They would not take them away if they are merchandising it.

    Also you have failed to cover the almost complete construction backstage near the TDA Parking structure…Just saying

    Also maybe you can look into the deal Disney has with the new transportation termail ARTIC. Could there be a monorail expantion in DLR future?

    Also you failed to mentioned the AP Frankenwinnie event that no one was at….

    Keep up the good work. I use you to help me keep OSM map up to date because I do go alot but not every week.
