    *sigh*

    If only they'd do this for Christmas as well. It's not a universally beloved holiday, but there's not a park out there that doesn't swaddle the entire grounds in "HO HO HO".

    SOME respite from retheme would be nice.
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    I don't know, just seems like everything costs money. Yes, the Hallowe'en party thing. The rumors (likely true) that they'll expand it to Christmas. I feel like guests are getting shuttled off into corners, "oh, just be happy with what you've got."

    I do not feel valued as a regular guest. They give a bit to the APs, the limited time magic and whatnot, but being a regular guest definitely feels degraded. A very "basic" level experience.

    Meh. Kind of kills the magic for me.

    Exactly right. IMO it goes to issues of taste and balance -- values that seem to escape today's Disneyland management, whose idea of taste and balance is too-bright colors, too-loud background music, ever-more-gargantuan fireworks and hyper-decorated holidays, as if their customers are attention-deficit clods who must be slapped in the face with Big Loud Shiny Stuff On Steroids or they won't spend money.

    Re: A Rant about various Disney Issues

    THis seems like a good place to say this given it has to do with broken effects. What is going on with Space Mountain??? The speed tunnel lights have slowly been burning out without replacement for a solid year and a half. There are now only 4-5 lights that actual works. Further, this is one of the only "real" effects in that attraction.

    While the ride badly needs a refurb, this issue seems to be one of simply replacing lights. Seriously, this needs to be fixed. For a second year now I hope that the ride will return from Ghost Galaxy with a functioning speed tunnel.
    Disneyland Wooooh!
