    Thanks for the updates. I haven’t been able to go to Disneyland in 4 years. Its so nice to keep abreast of all the changes.

    I love the pictures in your updates. They capture many of the little details that parkgoers miss on their way back to the RSR queue. I’m not sure how i feel about the Candy Canes being made over in DCA. Kinda makes it a little less special? I guess it gives more people the chance to see the confectioners do their thing.

    So why exactly are the joysticks being put back in if they have no control? Just going to confuse the guests…

    Once again i am forced to look on an ddream about the Disney Christmas from Afghanistan :( I love the great photos and when i get a chance to get online (which is not as often as I would like!) I come here first because the Happiest place on Earth at the most wonderful time of the year sure beats where I am.

    Thanks for letting me dream!

    Great update! I am FINALLY getting back to the parks when our family heads down to California next week!! The last time I was there was.. actually I think when your archive photos were taken! Little Mermaid land was just getting cleared, the Lagoon was drained, and the Orange still looked like an orange. Can’t wait to finally see new Star Tours, Mermaid, World of Color, BV street, Carsland, Haunted Mansion Holiday, all sorts of new stuff that I have never been able to see! Need next week to arrive!

    Keep up Dateline Disneyland! Its my Disney parks fix during the long span of times when I can’t be there! Thanks for all you guys do!

    Love the new Cars Land merch! Also appreciate the flashback- I remember thinking that the prices were ridiculous then! Now they actual seem cheap compared to today’s prices…
