    Is it just me or does it look like nothing is changing at the new Princess Faire site? I understand that there might be some foundation work in process, but the pix don’t seem to indicate progress.

    Good update! Nice to have a heads up on the soon to be heads down Big Thunder. Catch it while you can and wait with bated breath for the upgrade! Refurbishment is not a new attraction, but if it is cool enough it counts. Note Star Tours.

    As to the People Mover…I never experienced it so I cannot really miss it. That said and nostalgia aside (sorry Dusty), I’m not sure how cool it actually would seem to be in this day and age. It seems to have been a sort of moving park bench that went in a big loop. Take a load off your feet and roll around Tomorrowland? I don’t know how interesting that would be, especially given Tomorrowland’s current state of blahness.

    I never experienced the Skyway at Disneyland either, but I love the concept. A total refurb of Tomorrowland might include an update that combines both People Mover and Skyway into one, lawyer friendly, attraction.

    At any rate, the key words are “total refurb of Tomorrowland” IMHO.

    Thanks as always for the good job on MiceChat!

  • I don’t know if I’m humbled, or disappointed that Haunted Mansion is usually always one of the shortest waits…haha

    Great update Andy. Last week I had a day at Disneyland (first time in over a year). I am so glad for DCA. It looks great. I have to admit though, Tomorrow Land looks terrible. People mover or not, the whole thing looks downright offensive. Shame on Disneyland to let Walt’s dream of tomorrow become so devastated. If this seems a bit harsh, well damn it. This really urks me to no end. Other than Space Mountain ( not looking so good itself ) StarTours ( a little over hyped for my taste) and Buzz Lightyear (still a good ride). The whole thing needs to go. It truely saddens me that it has come to this. I am about to drop almost 2k on AP for the family and me. I am thinking long and hard on this to see if it is worth it. Once again, great Update.
