    Disneyland Park effects and details checklist

    I saw this on the photomagiques message board and thought it was brilliant for two reasons: first, it provides a one-stop clearinghouse to make known all the problems, issues with the park (hopefully to the powers that be). Second, it lets people know about some fantastic details that might otherwise go unnoticed (particularly if they're broken).

    Micechat needs one of these for every park, as a sticky at the top of the board. People can report on what is in good shape (green) and what is not (red), when things are fixed, etc., and I will change the original post to reflect those reports.

    "Below is a list of effects, props and details that have turned off or are easily overseen by the maintenance department. You can help us keep this list updated by checking if the effects below are working during your DLRP trip.

    Ah yes, that was a good idea, wasn't it? Sad to see all that red, though.

    On the bright side, rumor has it the Euro Disney people have now assigned a special unit dedicated solely to keeping these effects working.
