  1. Really loving “from the archives…”

  2. Thank you for the wonderful update, really appreciated : )

  3. Even though I go every week its refreshing to see pictures of the park! :D

  4. It was disappointing when I didn’t win seats in the Candlelight lottery, but probably not as disappointing if I won then the show was canceled. Great update!

  5. Great update as always, thanks for keeping us all up to date!

  6. Fantastic update! I love the throwback photos.

  7. Great update.

  8. I need to fit in a weekday trip this season before the schools let out.

  9. Look forward to reading every monday evening, so we know what to look for on our next trip. Thanks so much!

  10. Candlelight was incredible…the weather cleared!! Kurt Russell was very good as narrator. Orchestra and choir (huge choir) along with bell ringers and trumpeter heralds on top of the train station provided great music, with Russell’s narration of the Christmas Story the total package was inspiring and uplifting.

    Crowd control was basically 1 one way.. enter next to the Disney Gallery and exit next to City Hall. Lots of Castmembers directing crowd control. I am sure putting on 2 performances a night for 20 straight nights is going to be a challenge for everyone..

    But all of their efforts are very much appreciated as Candlelight is a great experience.

  11. Great update Andy. Congrats on 5 years! I have been reading your articles almost as long you have been contributing to MiceAge. =]

  12. check out the neon of the Flos V8 cafe sign that faces the street…its been broken for a couple of weeks now…another sign of disney not fixing things…great update as always

  13. Even rain can’t stop all the fun at the parks. We have had some really great times on rainy days there. I love the snow white cottage gingerbread house. One more special thing about holidays at the park.

  14. Amazing how things can change in a few months! Great update. We cannot wait to see the improvements first hand. We will see first hand in a few months! YEA!!!!
