  1. Thanks for the update

  2. Here’s may favorite quote of the article:

    “You’d probably look like this if you were trapped in these clutter-filled windows, too.”

    :)

    The little girl mannequin has an expression that’s somewhere between plaintive and concerned – like she’s witnessing Godzilla starting to stomp around on BVS. Maybe that is the period-specific look they were hoping for! Come on, people, these look bad.

    Seems to me that they have had a long time to fix this. Get a couple of imagineers and a couple of marketing guys in the same room for a while and do something tasteful that doesn’t detract from the ambiance. OR reinstall the original windows and start to produce and sell “real” versions of the props – like the cool retro-cover books that they had there. That would be specific to the area and downright cool.

  3. Fantastic update!

  4. Maybe they just need happier mannequins…

  5. You say Disney’s PhotoPass photographers have now taken to carrying around big, cheap frames and have guests hold up when posing for photos.
    Every opportunity to be negative is not missed… why not just say Disney’s PhotoPass photographers have now taken to carrying around big, blue frames and have guests hold up when posing for photos.
    Why throw in cheap??? Followed by you think the guests like them, even more reason not be negative, then toss in you wouldn’t want you picture with the frame… then don’t take it with the frame. JEESH
    And mannequins with unhappy faces… my kids have never once commented on a mannequin and I must admit I rarely look at their expressions. This is probably a good thing because many times they don’t even have heads.
    Keep up the 99% excellent work you do however. Really enjoy Dateline and use it for much information.
