Great update as usual! We have been hearing for so long that a re-do of DCA is coming that it is hard to believe that it might actually happen. Tomorrowland is still the focus at Disneyland because of all the mistakes of 1998. Good things seem to be on the horizon though.

Good to hear the island is doing well. It's a testament to the CMs on Rafts who are keeping things moving more than they thought they would!
I'd like to hear more about that little tidbit about the new facilities backstage that you oh-so-briefly touched upon!
I have to wait until 2009 for official Star Wars weekends? How hard is it to get a dozen actors to show up.

Thanks again, Al, a Tuesday morning without an update from you is like a day without sunshine. Or orange juice.
Now that we all can see what a hit the Nemo subs are going to be, it is indeed time to focus further on DCA and it's problems. Here's hoping that giant brass sun goes to the scrap yard and they plant about 5000 more trees...
Sounds like good things are afoot! Thanks for the update!
The potential for DCA to live up to its original hoopla is pretty exciting! I hope John Lassiter and all the other creative Imagineers get their way; right now it's just so sad to visit the park for just a couple of good rides.
I hope too that they spend the bucks to improve the cast members facilities. They deserve something for dealing with the sheer number of visitors who come through the gates each day.
Thanks AL great update as always. its nice to know about the parking for Dtd. Parking there on the weekends is crazy. If they were to expanded north of ESPN Zone then they really need to build a small version of the mickey and friends lot. Im guessing they lose a substantial amount of customers due to the parking lot being so crowded. There are times when its so full we rather just drive to the block... but thats on extreme ocassions. I am also extremely happy and siked about the Peoplemover. I've been wanting a new peoplemover since it left in the mid 90's. YEAH!!! Stars always need an update but I hopethey get rid of those rocks aka TL-bottleneck creator. Thanks again for the updates and YOU ROCK!!!
