    I find the Magic Kingdom Main Street shirt amusing too. Even more amusing is that of all the merchandise that both coasts share, THAT shirt is not one of them.

      The accuracy may not be correct, but I sure do love merch. with Walt. I may be on my third shirt of that version, since I wear it so much they keep wearing out.

      The shirt is not entirely innacurate. Magic kingdom was one of the nick names that referred to Disneyland long before Disney world opened…kinda like the happiest place on earth slogan.

  • That stage at the end of Hollywood Blvd in front of the hat is hedious. Why do they try so hard to ruin this park? First the ugly hat, and then an even uglier stage in front of the ugly hat. Yuck! Does no one in the company have the authority to fix a mess like this?

    You need only to walk through the front gate to immediately know that something is terribly wrong. So, I can only surmise that no one of any importance in the company has visited this embarrassment of a park, as surely the Disney Company would never allow such dreck!

    If they have to build something ugly for a special event, they should hide it toward the back of the park, not make it your first impression as you enter.

      When we went to WDW for the first time last year we got our main pictures in front of Spaceship Earth, the Tree of Life, and Cinderella Castle. Guess which park we didn’t get a photo of because there was a hideous stage covering the only thing you might get a picture of in that park.

        I guess it is best to keep all the ugly stuff in the same place 😉


    Hard to tell, but is that Seth Green in the picture of the photo spot interviewing someone?

  • I think you might be right!

    Any idea why the flag in Town Square is at half staff in the photo? Just wondering.

    Although the Snow White Mine Rides looks like it will be very enjoyable I must quote Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons in saying: “Slowest construction project EVER.”

    I like that floating happy face at the bottom of the picture of the Beast’s Castle …
