So I was reading the Orange County REgister this morning while eating breakfast and I noticed a little blurb in the Local section of the paper about Tom Sawyer's Island possibly changing it's theme. I already knew this from reading miceage and micechat but imagine my surprise when they mention miceage and name Al Lutz as a source!!
The Disney watchdog Web site, miceage.com, reported Wednesday that the island, which began in 1956, will be updated. Disneyland officials refused to confirm or deny the news.http://www.ocregister.com/ocregister...le_1298379.phpIn 2003, Disneyland rehabilitated many of the island's features to make them safer, said Al Lutz, the Web site's editor.
"The island is just a shadow of what it used to be," he said.
Lutz said executives, who cashed in on movies based on the Disneyland pirate ride, are pushing for the island makeover in time for the third movie's release next year.
"I think they are just reacting to the marketplace," Lutz said.
