    I am another one who wants to have the “It was all started by a mouse” shirt. I’ll buy one when I go on Thursday.

    Remember when the windows at The Emporium used to draw crowds? The lovingly constructed miniature displays which depicted scenes from various Disney animated films were always something guests loved stopping by and enjoying as they either arrived, or left for the night. When the 50th.happened, The Emporium windows were filled with retrospective displays from the past, along with a new display from Ratatouille. Since then (8 1/2 years later…so far), those displays are STILL THERE! The vintage displays were consolidated down to just a window or two while the Ratatouille window remains unchanged. The only changes made now are the window clings that are put up to promote the latest DVD/Blu-Ray release. Whatever happened to the release of new, moving, window displays? I really miss them.

    So, did no one notice that Disney apparently doesn’t know how to spell “Endeavour”?

    For Tinkerbell77: reports and rumors are saying that Big Thunder will close in early/mid January and that the refurb will last anywhere from 6 – 12 months. Even if that turns out slightly incorrect in some way, if it’s happening in 2013 at all you can bet your bootstraps it will be closed by May… Sorry.

    Man Earl of Sandwich is taking a ridiculous amount of time. I remember salivating, before my trip in July as I counted down the weeks, at the thought of an Earl of Sandwich. And then as each episode of Dateline Disney, the timeline went from “late spring” to “early summer” to “late summer” and now “fall 2012″. Yeesh, may as well be “opening….maybe never”

    Is there anyway to get tickets to the Halloween Party in Disneyland if it says it is sold out?
