    Stunning photos Andy! Thank you so much. I know how many LOOOOOONNNNNNNNGGGGGG hours you put into your multiple updates today. You’ve absolutely put together the most beautiful updates on Disney’s new Cars Land and Buena Vista Street that I’ve seen anywhere. Don’t know why none of the media seem to be reporting much on it, but there’s no point in them doing it now, because you’ve already produced the definitive coverage in your multiple columns here on the MiceChat front page and the Cars Land and Buena Vista Street guides in the forums: http://micechat.com/forums/cars-land-buena-vista-street-forums/

      I have to agree with Dusty, the coverage here has been fantastic on both Buena Vista Street and Cars Land. If the big time media don’t pick up on it then they are at a loss. If Disney doesn not point it out then they are losing out on some quality coverage (and very cheap advertising).

      Kudo’s to the entire Mice Age/Mice Chat team for all of the wonderfull coverage over the past 5 years of both Disneyland and the Adventure that we call DCA.

    It’s amazing how well it looks, and how long we’ve waited for this. It was worth the wait! 🙂

    You neglected to add Cone #5, which features “Popcone” in two different flavors. For the preview it’s Dill Pickle and Nacho Cheese, available in a cone-shaped cardboard container or a Lightning McQueen bucket.

      The day I visited, the Popcone had Dill Pickle and Sweet and Spicy. They were both very good. Here’s a tip: ask them to give you half and half. Delicious!

      The only problem with the Cozy Cones is that they have VERY slow service. I’m not sure why it takes 2 and a half minutes (or longer) to serve a popcorn, but it does. They really need to streamline the operation here and give the cast members some help. Lines this summer are going to be LONG!

      Thanks for catching that. I’ve updated the blog with the menu items from Cone #5.

    Thank you for the amazing coverage Andy, and especially thank you for the videos. I won;t be able to get back to the USA for at least a year and a half so this will satiate me for a while until I get to experience it myself. All your coverages this week are outstanding and I kust wanted to express my appreciation.

    Over the building period the glimpses over the fence were tantilizing but nothing prepared me for what it is actually like in the midst of it, I’m blown away by the level of detail and immersion.

    I think maybe the media aren’t coverng it yet, as Dusty pointed out, because they are more geared for the June 14th official media day, they certainly can’t possibly ignore it.

    Cab’t wait for your next report Andy!

    Andy as Dusty said your coverage had been fantastic! I am hoping that we get videos/crowd count of the crowds this weekend and see how everyone responded to the new park. I really loved seeing the new pictures of features not shown yet. Thanks so very much!!!
