    I'm really looking forward to the re-opening of the castle. I can remember going through it when I was little.

    I can't wait for it to open. I loved that original Earle diorama and I'm thrilled it will be restored.

    The video recreation is incredible.

    And I'm SO glad they are adding the Dragon! You guys are my heroes.

    (..and if this is as successful as I suspect, I still imagine a revived Pirate Ship/Skull Rock, Swiss Family Treehouse, Tahitian Terrace, Skyway, Rocket Jets, PeopleMover - - and maybe a Nautilus! Oh, well I can dream can't I?)

    I'm very excited about the Walk-Through re-opening. However, I have absolutely no memory about ever going through it when I was younger. So, it will ALL be new to me. Can't wait!

    I am so glad to hear that this was not 'cuted' up and that we are getting essentially getting the original '57-'77 walkthorough as we saw on the DVD! W/ This, Snow White, Pinoc, Alice and Toad, DL will have the darkest and most subversive Fantasyland out of all the MKs!! Thank you Tony and Chris.

    Interesting comment. But since those more closely reflect Walt Disney's original vision, aren't the later inoffensive consumerist franchise versions of Fantasyland (and Disney) the actual "subversive" ones?

    That's especially true if you had those little booklets with a bunch of unused "A" or "B" tickets (or coupons as they were actually called).

    Well, before full-day, unlimited passports were sold, I think that the relatively inexpensive main gate admission meant that locals could visit Disneyland pretty much any time they wanted (Walt initially considered free admission! ). As a child, although my family was fairly poor, I remember going a lot albeit not always doing a lot. When unlimited passports became the standard, it was a great deal if you wanted to hit the park pretty hard in terms of attractions, but was kind of expensive if you didn't. From that point, I remember going a lot less often but trying to get in everything I could each time (which can be fun but tiring). It's not weird but rather a matter of economics. Although standards have definitely shifted with regard to the perception of admission price, annual passports have kind of come full circle in bringing back the ability for locals to visit the park (now parks) more often while being able to relax a little bit.

    Oh...uh...gahgh...ew, thanks a lot, I just threw up a little in my mouth just from the thought!

    Me too, and it's kind of weird in a way since it's such a minor attraction by some standards. It's one of the little things that help make Disneyland special, though. On that note, I still visit Storybook Land by boat or train every time I visit the park. At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, if this ever gets old for me, then I know that something inside me must have died...really.

    Sounds a lot like Fred Savage's character in The Princess Bride.

    That's too bad. No problem, I can wait....

    Where would they put them? Maybe in or near the old Motor Boat Cruise lagoon (Fantasia Gardens) would be good.

    Probably will never happen, but I'd much prefer the real Nemo--as in Captain Nemo--to the current theme of the Submarine Voyage.

    Well, it's kind of circular--while the later versions may subvert the original vision, the original vision remains and subverts what people have generally come to view as Disney's vision. Personally, I like a little darkness in my doses of Disney. They had more of that in the early days, and it's one of the reasons that Beauty and the Beast and The Hunchback of Notre Dame are my favorites of the newer (relatively speaking) animated features.
