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.
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.
Mary Niven, however, realized that these trolley’s will offer a unique way to see Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Blvd., two areas of DCA that offer the most eye candy and intimate detail, and so she pitched the idea to Bob Weis that a second Cast Member needed to be on board each trolley to present a live spiel of the sights passing by the trolley windows....
...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.
*jaw hits ground*
Now, THAT is real Disney showmanship. Bravo!

Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

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!
