    Thank you so much for those lovely photos of Market House as it is today, much as it has been for a long time, and soon to be changed. I’m looking forward to good coffee, and certain that Starbucks will do a nice job, hopefully preserving a great deal of those old details; sad to say it, but I even think the Disneyana shop has lost its focus, and purpose since the Gallery opened on Town Square, so I think repurposing the space is a welcome thing. The mug/merchandising possibilities are endless, as is the need for seating.

    Really, still no smoke ring – breath of death- at the end of Indy’s darts room? Bummer, that’s SO cool in Japan. Seemed an ez upgrade to add here, now.

    Thanx again for your update.

    Not liking the crowded, congestion on Main St in the evening.

    Love the update. I’m a little worried about how Starbucks may change the market house.

    lots of great info here, love the TouringPlans tips for park status – really helpful. The MarketHouse is the first place i hit upon entering DL for my coffee fix (and the coffee isn’t that bad) love the free refills. thanks for all the pretty pics.

    Great Update as always, Kodak how sad to see another part of Americana leave from the park. As for Starbucks I’m sure people will love this new edition to the park but the lines sure will be noticeable and hmmm how much for a cup of coffee.

    Anyone else have trouble leaving comments? When I try to go to the bottom, my computer automatically starts scrolling back up!
    Candlelight is wonderful, and your photos capture the visuals well.
    How about Eden Espinosa as a narrator for next year’s Candlelight? A local product like John Stamos and worthy of that honor.
    Where can I get “Magical” from the summer fireworks show?


    Thanks for a great update. I really like the look back section you’ve had the past few weeks. I also really liked the first picture in the post. I know it’s there but always just pass it.
