    If only Disneyland had real whores instead of cheap trinkets. They are adding retail space, but not adding anything even half as interesting as Mrs. Disney's One of the Kind Antique Shop.

    Plus, didn't the expansion to pieces of eight basically fail at everything but destroying the charm of NOS? I never see it staffed, let alone making sales. There's hardly anything there.
    it's a sale of candy and a sale of plush, it's a sale of toys and disney stuff
    there's so much that we sell, that it's time we tell, it's a plush plush sale!

    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.
    --p. 91, The Disneyland Detective by Kendra Trahan.
    Well, I suppose it is fitting that the Courtyard is becoming retail space considering Sally's role as Store Operations director. The store expansion is in-theme afterall! Bring in the cash registers! Bring in the profits!

    So has anyone be able to confirm that this is happening? i have a friend that would love a window for when to pay his respects.

    As for Photopass, it's happened. My sister has a photo of her and a friend posing on the stairs taken by a Disney photographer. It's actually quite nice.
