|Wedding trips to Disneyland, Candlelight Processionals, and gingerbread cookies are just some of the highlights in this weeks MiceChat Round up of Disney and theme park news and discussions. That is just the beginning though as we find that all is not perfect in the magic kingdom, even with a Club 33 membership. We also kick around the idea of turning Space Mountain into a Star Wars attraction. Over in Tokyo we get a lovely trip report from MiceChat member sarlm and a look at a Disney Studios Paris attraction that never was. We get all of this along with a recap of the week in articles, podcasts and videos from MiceChat too! Let’s get started.||
