Now that the Media has their story, the opening celebration is over,
and the new attractions, Monster Inc and Turtle Talk have been announced, what happens next?
We've seen some nice last minute polish ups over the past year, in preparation for Disneyland's 50th. Among those Block Party at DCA, the new parade at DL to replace the 5 year old 45th Birthday Parade, hearing the announcement of Monsters Inc. replacing Superstar Limo, Turtle Talk replacing the Walt movie in the Animation Building, A new fireworks with great special effects replacing the Believe fireworks show, upgrades to Jungle, HM, and Space Mt, and filling in vacant attraction building with Astro Blasters
BUT surprisingly No Nemo Announcement has been made yet, and DL is now in it's longest dry spell of no new E-Ticket in the history. Yes, DCA may have received an E- Ticket with Tower of Terror, but DCA is DCA. DL still needs a new E Ticket. Of course TL still need a LOT of help, even AFTER Space/Rock It Mt re-opens.
After Space Mt opens, will the financing to DL be reduced to nothing? Will we really see the new Subs open? Will we really get a new People Mover? Or were the $$$'s just spent to make DL look all nice for the media the last 2 days and now go back to the "no e ticket for you" attitude that we have seen the past ten years? Or will the changes we've seen over the past year continue with a New DL Ticket, and a GRAND plan for turning DCA around?
Even after seeing the new parade at DL, and Block Party at DCA, a couple special effects at HM and Jungle, and a new fireworks show, Without the announcement of a project to replace the Subs, when one was promise to be complete by 2003, it really is a cause for concern.
