I don't have any problem with the POTC update, so long as it is done well, and judging by your story, Al, I think it will be--TDA and Glendale will hold WDI's feet to the fire if it isn't. If those folks don't want to see more cuts in WDI staff, they'll crank something good out.
Your update left me with one question, though. If they move Golden Snores up to the hubcap (and good riddance, BTW), what will they put in the area where that attraction currently resides? Something new? Rip the building down?
Planting more trees across the park is a great start.
