Re: DLR Podcast on Rockin Both Parks: "Our tagline for this is 'Space Mountain Reveal
I just finally got around to listening to the podcast. It was embarrassing. Everyone was as excited about it as I remember people being for the opening of Indiana Jones. It wasn't worth the hype.

I don't think this "rockin" ride reflects Walt's concern for quality, cutting edge rides or rides for the whole family.
I also have to say that I think there is no way in the world Walt would want the Chili Peppers representing Disneyland. While I like their music, and had seen them in concert, bought their CDs, etc., I think they are not very good Disney reps. This is a band famous for an Abbey Road photo in which they crossed the street like the Beatles wearing nothing but a single sock each, covering their junk. Their concert motto is "Rock out with your [bleep] out." Walt would have freaked.
