    BOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Kevin- I know I'm a huge critic of your stance on Fastpass, but I do enjoy reading your columns every week, so know that I do appreciate your writing.

    ENOUGH WITH THE FREAKIN IPHONE APPS ALREADY! You start the article with a little blurb about the new ride at Universal Studios, but then don't give us any news on it? Is it breaking down? What's the deal? Instead we get an iPhone app review that totally alienates the 80% or more of your audience that doesn't have an iPhone! Seriously dude, can we get back to the theme parks?

    Sorry about that, ducksman. I haven't *been* on the Uni coaster yet; I spent last weekend reading and writing.

    The article I submitted included a "Disney bookshelf" section, with reviews of 10+ books added to my collection, and the longer list of Disney books I put out every six months or so. It didn't make it into today's article, probably because I formatted the links wrong, so I take the blame there. It was never my intention to write another iPhone article; the iPhone stuff was actually more of an add-on to the book reviews, though it came first.

    I just bought the app this morning and briefly had time to play it. The graphics are great and you can't beat the music that sounds exactly like it does when you're in line or on the ride. Sorry I can't give more feedback on the game, but it does have excellent reviews on its app page

    I just about died when I heard the game for Wii was coming out a couple of months ago. According to Amazon, it has a September 15th release date. I'll be the first in line for that one.

    Yaaaaaaaaay!

    Thank you so much for the Toy Story Mania review Kevin. I bought it this morning and have played the first three levels and so far it is very fun. I would have had no idea that it was available if it wasn't for your article. The news about the Wii version is great also. With so many people writing about the same Disney news, it's nice to have something different. Don't worry about alienating readers. Any article will have something that isn't for all readers. (handicapped, families, special needs, seniors, annual passholders......)

    I am going to resist apps and I-Phones for the time. I'm a bit poor in spendable money and am making ends meet. I do wonder if the new tech stuff may ever get into my hands. Will this be some sign of future developments where if a person does not have technological gadgits that he or she will be missing out on an experience of some note?

    Well, that's always been true:

    Consider PS3 and XBOX360 of late, but also flatscreen TVs (I still don't have one). Or even just personal computers, starting the early 80s.

    I really appreciate the reviews of Disney related iPhone apps. I got a couple from the previous review and also the Toy Story Mania game. It's a lot of fun! Thanks, Kevin, and please do more reviews if you find new apps.
