    I'll give you that one.

    Fair enough on his motivations. But what is untrue is his implication that Pig Cafe is what TDA Cast Members are commonly calling it. If anyone in TDA is calling it that, it's definitely not close to the extent that Al is implying. Fiddler is the name everyone is using.

    That's fair, although the last time he implied that was a few months ago. I've just been going with FFP, so maybe once this place actually opens we can all converge on one name!
    Disneyland Wooooh!

    I think the "Pig's Cafe" would be appropriate since they were the Three Little Pigs.

    They should just call it "Starbucks", since that is more understandable to Guests . Personally I prefer "The Pig Cafe".

    As for Luigi's Flying Tires, I think it would work better if there were fewer tires or a larger play area.

    "Pig Café" may not be what employees are calling it, but I fail to see how it's rude in any way. It's named after pigs. If it was the Aurora, Belle, and Cinderella Café, would it be rude if someone referred to it as the "Princess Café?"

    I like "Pig Cafe". I'm sure I'll make a pig of myself sometime in the future with its bakery goods.

    Sure, if he was calling it that in a playful, fun way. But he's not. Just listen to his tone on that podcast from last month. It's the way he says it that makes it kinda rude. Like I said, let him have his fun. He's not looking to swift with this one, and it will quietly go away once he finds something else to latch onto. Thank Gawd Roy Disney is dead and safe from Al's attack!

Yeah, sure the main ride will be fun, but it's not really innovative or inspired (Test Track with eye candy) and while I was never really that excited about Cars Land, Al's review doesn't change that for me.

    It would be closer to journey center earth in Japan based on quality of the ride. Being a test track fan I'm glad the direction they went. Wish a few more people shared your views. 3 hour lines aren't my cup of tea. If it takes merchandise tie ins to get great themed lands now, then so be it. Find me the next.

    I just noticed there's a wedding ring on Walt's hand on the new statue. I don't think he was married when he got to L.A. in 1923 which is the moment they meant to capture in the statue, right? What's up with that?

    Yup -- Walt and Lillian got married in 1925.

    Re: 6/5: Cars Land Guide

    Having been able to go to the previews on Sat. and Sun. I have to give Disney an A+++ on Buena Vista Street and Carsland. Luigi's is not difficult to master if you pay attention and, if you have a partner riding with you, work together. The only people I saw having problems were couples who leaned in opposite directions at the same time. I loved Cars I and Cars II does not lessen my love of the franchise. You feel like you are in Radiator Springs in the movie. You can't ask for more than that. For those who want to complain there is a simple solution. Don't go. Stay far away. That way maybe the wait times will be less than three hours.
