    Hahaha...no, no, don't get me wrong. Christmas and Easter are my two favorite holidays. The two most important events in human history are Jesus' birth and Jesus' death and resurrection, if you ask me, and I would certainly like some Peace on Earth and Good Will Toward Men! I just sometimes prefer the way Disneyland looks au naturale.

    Re: Court of Angels to become another Shop Add-On in NOS

    I like the court empty...it's a lot less troublesome to get upstairs to my break area. Or at least, if you're gunna retail the court, bring back the quaint Le Gourmet shop!
    I usta think Disneyland would be a target for terrorists, but now I think
    its just going to implode...court of Angels is the third strike. (Mr. Lincoln
    and Fantasia ice cream being first, COP to Innoventions being second).
    Loss of the Skyway, loss of Mine Train thru Nature's Wonderland...soon
    it will be a parking lot. Not hope, prediction.

    You just set it up so well, and I couldn't resist following through!

    Re: Court of Angels to become another Shop Add-On in NOS

    That would ruin one of the most beautiful spots in all the park. I always thought to walk down the stairs in one's wedding gown would look majestic.
    A photographer's dream if you will. I'm sure everyone says that though.

    I'm going to cry now. That's really terrible and words don't describe how awful it would be. To the lady who wanted her proposal there I pray you get your wish. Maybe hit up the wishing well, they haven't changed that yet!

    When would this transformation take place, if it happens?

    The quaint, the peaceful, the lovely...










































    Portrait artists set up shop here.











    The Louisiana state flag flies above. The open courtyard allows you a gorgeous view from all angles.













    The adjacent ornament shop. I've seen closets larger than this.

    Question Re: Court of Angels to become another Shop Add-On in NOS

    Those pictures bring up a question I've wondered for a while now. In the Court of Angels, there's a plaque advertising singing lessons by a Mme. Sally McWhirter. Does anyone know if there's a story behind this? I heard once the courtyard was dedicated to a CM who had died. Is this her?

    Who cares? Disney's been running the place into the ground for over a decade now.

    Seriously. I wish they would just bulldoze the place and start all over. I would especially love it if they got rid of that gaudy bronze statue of that old guy and the rat.

    Found this through Google:
    Sally began her career with Disney in the Disney Stores, Inc. in Indiana. Sally was promoted to District Manager before coming to work in Disneyland. Here she was named director of store operations in 1995 until her untimely death in 1997. She died at 40 as a result of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Sally sang with her church choir, which explains the plaque reference to music of angels and voice lessons. Her tribute is near this heavenly stairway, in the Court of Angels.

    Actually, that IS happening already...detail by detail, charm by charm, theme by theme. It's just happening so slowly that most don't recognize the destruction for what it is.

    Why does every little nook that is peaceful have to be filled with merchandise? If they want to do this, put it over in the Thunder Ranch area near Santa. Leave this corner of Disney alone. Makes me wonder when they'll turn Disneyland into DCA 2001?
