Hi everyone! Just a quick question -- For many decades, Disneyland was known for its policy of replacing its light bulbs before they completely burned out, so as never to distract from the show. Of course the mid-90's Pressler-era ruined all that, but when Matt Outimet took over in 03 and brought such wonderful changes with him, I thought that keeping up on the resort's bulbs would be a priority again.
Yet, to this day, I see lots of empty spaces where lights should be glowing, from Main St, to Tomorowland to Downtown Disney. A view of the Paradise Pier at night last Xmas was in such bad shape it was almost like playing "connect the empty spots." (By the way, has the Golden Zephyr ever had all its lights working?) It's especially noticeable on special buildings that we're used to staring like the Main St Train Station or the Fire House.
In the grand scheme, it may be a small thing, but isn't this an example of what Kevin Yee would call "decling by degrees?" Disneyland may not be able to maintain their old policy of catching lights before the burn out due to the increased size of the resort now, but shouldn't they at least keep up on lights that have burned out already?
Any thoughts? Does anyone actually know what the current policies are? Just wondering... Oh...and PLEASE, no "stop whining, just stay home then" kind of posts, OK?
