    Smile Rolly Crump and Don Edgren Enshrined on Main Street, U.S.A.

    D23 posted a fun item about the new windows on Main Street for Don Edgren and Rolly Crump. The story explains how the practice of granting windows on Main Street started and why Don and Rolly are well deserving of their spot in the neighborhood of Disney legends.

    Walt started the tradition of store window dedications back in 1955, the year his Magic Kingdom first opened its gates. Realizing that the shops lining Main Street, U.S.A. needed names, he decided to use the real names of employees who went above and beyond the call of duty to help him achieve his dream. Walt's special way of saying "thanks" caught on, and since then, more than six dozen people have become the proprietors of fictional businesses that reflect their unique contribution to the park.

    I know D23 staff read these forums to learn more about how to improve the club/community/magazine/whatever you guys want to call it.

    Anyways, I just want to say that it looks like an interesting read, but the fact is that fan sites like mouseplanet and micechat had this kind of news two days ahead of D23 and I've learned enough about it that I probably have an assumption of what the article is about and have no motivation or interest in reading it.

    If I were D23, I would try to work closer with the other branches of Disney to get this kind of news out on the website either the same day or sooner than what the staff of other fansites can do.

    I was also intrigued by the news in the Twilight Bark section that the guest restrooms at DCA will soon be opening. Such attention to details is why we love D23!

    Or they just want to scoop Dateline Disneyland and In The Parks.

    It also looks like Rolly hasn't lost it in 40 years. That outfit? Fabulous!
