    just a tidbit i heard about west coast cruises

    ok, my mom works for LAPD in a division close to the los angeles ports in wilmington and san pedro. She was talkign to a couple of port cops the other day and they gave a bit of unofficial interesting news.

    Port of Los Angeles really wants to get Disney Cruise over here and are attempting to arrange with Disney the possibility of developing our Ports O'Call area in san Pedro. If you never been to ports o'call it's a little waterfront area that has unfortunately fallen to the less...savory...crowds in about the past decade or so (it was much nicer when I was young, and I'm 22).

    Don't know if anyone else heard this, but I thought i would pass it along. It would be great to develop this area for it and I'm really lookign foward to the possibilities.

    I have also recently heard that Disney has filed the paperwork to visit glaciers in Alaska. Looks like the Alaska rumors are moving forward

    We used to visit Ports O'Call all the time when I was young (and I'm older than 22 ) and loved it back then. Haven't been recently so I'm sorry to hear it has fallen into disrepair. If they can return the area to it's glory days quality I think that would be a good fit.

    it's pretty rough now...heck it was rough about 10 years ago when I last went. My friend went there a few months a go and her car was stolen out of the parking lot. The police later found it stripped.
