    Great update, it’s always such a treat to come and read this column!

    I snuck a peek inside the new Main Street Starbucks location. All I could see was the ceiling, which is totally stripped bare with exposed wires. So it looks like it has a ways to go yet. I’m worried the final product will lack the intimate character of Main Street, as happened in Disney World. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

    Thanks Andy for another wonderful update for a truly beautiful resort.

    I couldn’t get more than 15seconds into that video of awful song they played at the Birthday celebration, terrible mix of what should be a gorgeous song, and that grating yelling voice with ridiculous commands. No thanks.

    I think the Christmas in July Limited Time Magic was yet another cop-out in a badly thought out campaign. So many opportunities for wonderful character interactions. Christmas loops, snow on Main Street. And even the Disneyland Birthday celebration could have been much bigger for the LTMagic occasion. So many missed opportunities.

    Great to see the Crazy Cones fountain working again finally. I wonder what the issue was? Glad they could get it sorted in the end. And wow, some of that Cars merch is VERY well done! And the books are a beyond awesome touch! If I was there, I totally would have got one for my dad, he loves that kind of stuff! Well done Merch team with that stuff. Not so much with a lot of other areas, including Buena Vista Street.

    Looking forward to the next update, thanks again and have a great week! -Q.

      Try the video again. That awful song is just the first part of it.

    The new burger at White Water Snacks has been there for almost a year now. I remember having one last August. When I went there earlier this month I noticed that the burger had been added to the permanent menu.

    I have to agree with the review. It is very greasy… but very tasty. The carnitas is very juicy and the guacamole gives it an extra kick of flavor.

    White Water Snacks is my favorite place to eat in the whole resort.

    The human loved the pix of souvenirs but neither of us were impressed by the menus except for the photo of the burger. Bring on the beef. Bring on the pork. Bring on the grease — ay, chihuahua!
