    Thanks for another excellent update, Al!
    I love all the positive news!

    I hope that a Project Sparkle team is created for WDW's EPCOT and Magic Kingdom.

    Having "Citizens" in the park will be an awesome edition.

    They bring life to Disney's Hollywood Studios here in Florida, and have quite the following (even a fan-run Facebook page).

    Excited about all the news!

    First of all "Fantasyland “WonderBra” Theater" , one of the best lines ever. =-)

    Good to see that the Florida-based execs are starting to see the light, maybe there's hope for WDW in the future, that's definitely a place that "show quality" is on the back burner.

    The trolleys will see low hourly ridership, but the best part of it, is like the vehicles of Main street, they provide the background show, basically you don't have to ride it to "experience" it. which of course is one of the things that make Disney Parks above others. They'll spend the time and money for Theme and show sake.

    I would love to see all the WDW parks get their own Project Sparkle.

    Awesome update! I just hope that the Kardasians don't ever show up. We don't need "reality" TV stars like them at this park. Might as well call Kim an actress, Paris Hilton a singer, and The Situation an actor. Get some people with actual talent like Joseph Gordon Levitt and Emma Stone.

    Al this update was brilliant. It was a well written piece that gave me hope for the positive things coming to the Anaheim property. Great work.

    Wow, lots of exciting stuff packed into that article! I probably won't make it out West anytime soon, but it sounds like there'll be lots of good reading this summer and next fall!

    ...Mary Niven didn’t want slapstick humor like the Jungle Cruise, but rather a cross between the period-piece spiels of the Sailing Ship Columbia and the gracious sightseeing at Storybook Land Canal Boats. Mary and her team felt this was a better way to bring the story of Buena Vista Street to life and would help her achieve her goal of making Disney California Adventure a more human and charming park, qualities that ooze out of the woodwork next door at Disneyland but have been in short supply at DCA.

    Thanks for the update Al!

    I'm looking forward to something happening on the East side especially if it means the resuscitation of the People Mover ....

    Re: 2/21: A Sense of Place

    I love these updates! So much good information in them. Looking forward to the street performers for DCA. When I was in Hollywood Studios at WDW three years ago I loved the performers. One of them took me under her wing and wisked me all over the street introducing my daughter and myself to other street performers. It was so much fun!
