What fantastic report! It really was a magical experience for those involved.
A truly memorable experience. The pictures as well tell a wonderful story. And Matt Ouimet is a gentleman, he truly is doing his best to turn things around at Disneyland.Thank you Matt!

A note on the planter work going on around the hub. I too was worried that it would be a big loss, but it looks like they are going to make the best of a tough situation. The planter immediately outside the Adventureland entrance has already been narrowed down to a sausage shaped sliver. But what they've done is pack it full of jungle foliage (bananna plants, birds of paradise, etc.). I mean, literally brimming over with plants. And despite it's small size, it looks fantastic, a really excellent welcome to Adventureland. So I'm pretty confident that even with the reduced area they have to work with, the landscapers will do a good job keeping the lush feel that area of the park always has.
You know, I have to agree with Bacon - they've done a decent job with the walkway widening. Of course, I'd still rather they didn't have to do it, but given that they do, I think this will turn out much like the riverfront/Fantasmic! rehab - I think the new look will be good enough we probably won't miss the old too badly.
Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
