    Remember When?

    Remember when Main Street Emporium windows used to have a series of animated window displays based on current animation features? It seemed like it was once or twice a year that they would get updated. I think 101 Dalmations was one of those sets. Can't remember for sure, but didn't Atlantis have a set of windows at one time?

    It's sad, but our windows have been the same ones for seven l-o-n-g years. I wonder why the change-outs dont happen very often.

    Just another one of those cut backs Disney is so find of. Nothing like consistently offering less for more money.

    I loved those.......I have an AP and my mom doesn't. She maybe goes to Disneyland every two years now. The last time she walked by the windows I remember she commented that it was a shame that she comes sooo little and the windows haven't changed in years!

    I too miss those......and they should at least clean the inside of the windows once in a while....Ariel looks silly enough without having a cobweb from her hair to "knees".

    I loved those. Entering the park in the 70's and 80's it was the first thing I went to see. The Rescuers, The Black Hole, Pete's Dragon and a few others were pretty memorable. There were about 4 or 5 windows that in succession showed scenes from the story.

    I expected them to always be there and never thought they'd leave. The last time I was in the park there were still one or two windows with various displays with mini-animatronics from different features, but nothing that promoted one specific movie spanned over all display windows. I just never thought they'd do away with that concept.

    I miss those days. I never really noticed it until now. Such a shame.

    I always look at the windows and noticed the same thing.

    As glad as I am that what we have is there, I would have thought they would update the scenes by now. I still enjoy the current ones though.

    I actually never walk on that side of main street just so I can avoid looking at those windows. They were always such a special treat to me to see. I have very strong memories of walking down with my mom stopping to look at each display. They were a big part of my disney experience.

    Looking at them now is just really depressing to me.

    So, they got rid of yet another lovely little touch of charm in the Park? That figures. The Eisner/Iger Empire of Lameness continues its campaign of suckage unabated.

    Old Disney = Awesome.
    New Disney = Pathetic.

    DITTO! I rarely walk on that side of Main Street. I'm hoping one day I'll make my over and see that they have FINALLY changed.

    I would label New Disney as "Not as Awesome." Compared to the parks in the 90's, we are way above pathetic. But definitely not awesome.

    Ironically, if this was something that Disney just started doing now, many people would condemn it as being out of the theme of turn of the century Main Street.

    Or just get rid of them all together.
