    Re: AOL Disneyland article

    Thanks for the link - be sure to catch the bottom of page 3 where it includes other things from the print version of the article (I'm assuming they were sidebars of some sort) That's where this gem came from - I love it!!

    Freshly tweaked from a ride based on every Errol Flynn movie ever made to a ride based on a movie based on a ride based on every Errol Flynn movie ever made, the new Pirates is a triumph of postmodernism with a cool theme song. Yo ho, yo ho, indeed.
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Re: AOL Disneyland article

    LOL this article was FANTASTIC tho. But I am wondering:

    Miceage.com Another site for Disneyland obsessives, it offers excruciatingly detailed park updates and exhaustive chat boards, often frequented by pseudonymous Disneyland employees—a recent thread covered Fastpass strategy in the kind of detail usually reserved for the Talmud and Fantasy Football.
    LOL was that Darkbeer's thread??

    That price is just there so people can see how much money they save buy buying multi-day passes.
    Also, a single park pass should be plenty for one day.

    Do note that upgrading to park-hopper option is a flat amount ($39?) regardless of the number of days you buy, up to the max of 10.

    Miceage.com Another site for Disneyland obsessives, it offers excruciatingly detailed park updates and exhaustive chat boards...
    Might as well point out an excruciatingly detailed bit of correction to his article:

    You can still see his [Walt's] private car, the Victorian Lilly Belle, tacked to the rear of the choo-choo that circles the park.
    The Lilly Belle private car wasn't created until 1976...ten years after Walt passed away.

    But otherwise a great and well written article.

    Re: AOL Disneyland article

    The bottom of the article says he's a restaurant critic.
    That's very odd, because he really limits was he says
    about the meals, and he's not even right about the
    prices. He says 4 people at Blue Bayou for lunch is $100.
    Unless everyone at the table orders the cheapest meal on
    on the menu, no beverage, no appetizer, no dessert, and
    no tip ~ he's WAY off base.

    I enjoyed reading the article, and had to chuckle a bit at the description besides this forum.
