    Wink The one good thing that happened with Pressler/Harris

    What was one good thing that happened?

    For me it has to be Indy.

    Indy was the only thing that came to my mind.

    Haunted Mansion Holiday and the Fireworks. Was the space mountain soundtrack from them? That was cool too.

    Re: The one good thing that happened with Pressler/Harris

    From what I've read, he tried to scale back Indy when he first came on board.

    Some people just love those extra-cost special evenings, where you pay to have dinner, ride the attraction-of-the-night, maybe hear from an imagineer who helped create the attraction, and then buy something expensive and supposedly exclusive to the event.
    I think the number of these people is very low, relative to the 10 million or so unique guests to DL annually.

    Re: The one good thing that happened with Pressler/Harris

    Can't think of much...

    bigger emphasis on pins & pin trading?

    there's no way I'm going to give pressler credit for Indy... it was well
    into development by the time he got there.

    how about DTD & GCH and the Neverland Pool?

    ok.. renovation of the Hyperion?

    new TDA building?

    I'd say Haunted Mansion Holiday since it kept the Haunted Mansion fresh and updated.

    Honestly, the amount of sheer pavers that the Pressler/Harris combo did. Most of the lands look very good paverwise now, vs. the blacktop in the days of old. (See: Tomorrowland)

    Damning with faint praise, I see. At least now I know who to blame for the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Darn you, Paul Pressler, and your Light Magic parade, too!

    I think the idea for WestCOT was an awesome idea! But then Disney's Crappy Adventure came to be. Pardon for my French.

    Pressler bungling the job of managing Disneyland helped the cause in getting Eisner to "retire" earlier than expected.
