    I haven't heard anything about her. All I know is that they've been working on her a lot down in the pit. I hope she's close to recovery because I am dying to see what she looks like!

    Al Lutz hinted in an Editor's Note that the dragon may emerge from her pit sometime next week...

    I thought that maybe "Yankee Doodle" may mean she would come back on Independence Day!

    Hopefully. That will be a great surprise, especially since it's going to be packed that day!

    Re: Disneyland Project Tracker

    Today's Disneyland update over at MousePlanet has some details about the Main Street Magic Shop's problems and future:
    mouseplanet.com/8888/Disneyland_Resort_Update#news3

    Word leaked early last week that Disneyland's Main Street Magic Shop would close for a previously unscheduled "refurbishment," creating concern for the future of the iconic store. Cast members blamed the pending closure on a number of factors, including a search for a new supplier of magic tricks and a long-overdue remodel to bring the tiny store into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The store was supposed to have closed on Friday, but a last-minute decision delayed the closure, leaving the store's schedulers scrambling to fill shifts for the coming week.

    The closure was reportedly first considered earlier this year, prompted by the pending Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), originally scheduled to take effect on February 10, 2009. CPSIA requires products intended for use by children under 12 to meet new standards for lead and phthalates, and imposes new testing and labeling standards on toys - including product already on retailer's shelves. A one-year stay of enforcement was issued on January 30, but Disneyland had already sent much of their inventory of magic tricks and gags to outlet stores. Since that time, the store has offered a much-diminished selection of tricks and gags, and many popular items have been out of stock for months. Cast members say it has even been difficult to demonstrate magic tricks for customers because few of the tricks they usually perform are still available to sell.

    ^ Hmmm. I can't tell whether or not that's good news or bad news.

    Friggin' government. This law was pushed through Congress by lobbyists from the major toy manufacturers (Hasbro & Mattel...Big Toy, if you will) ostensibly as a protection from the lead hysteria last year. But they also knew smaller toy manufacturers could not afford the onerous testing requirements necessitated by the law (even if all the toy's individual parts are certified lead-free, you still have to send the finished product in for a battery of tests, for instance), which would ultimately reduce their competition in the marketplace as the smaller companies went out of business.

    That is good news that it is not Disney's fault that the shop may have to close until they can get child safe trick.

    It is bad news because how are mom and pop toy makers going to afford the testing. I still have the cradle my dad made for my dolls and my red wheelbarrow which probably had lead paint.

    Thanks for the update.

    Re: Disneyland Project Tracker

    Looks like the Fantasmic! dragon is still not ready for show time. Al Lutz explains in the 6/30 MiceAge.com editor's note:

    Editor's Note 6/30: Disneyland's Entertainment group gave it their best shot and repaired the exterior damage to the Fantasmic dragon. But the concern that the neck structure may fail again is preventing final repairs and programming, so a 4th of July debut is now off the table. Too bad TDA ordered a summer's worth of dragon guidemaps!
