    I just recently read an article about Chicago folk singer Steve Goodman, who died in 1984 before his beloved Cubs went to the playoffs. Apparently his ashes were in part scattered over the warning track at Wrigley. The article said that his relatives knew someone who knew someone who got them into Wrigley Field when it was empty. (Goodman wrote and sang the song "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request", in which he asks to be cremated at home plate and let his ashes waft out over the bleachers onto Waveland Avenue...)

    The article went on to talk about health risks from the ashes. Apparently there are none, and ashes can be disposed of anywhere, but on private property, legally, the permission of the owner is needed. Obviously Disney isn't giving permission, but while it might seem creepy, it shouldn't scare anyone...

    Disney seems to be getting ripped off if thats all we get for $1.1 billion.

    Part of me wonders who on earth would leave a loved one's remains in IASW--but another part of me never, ever wants to meet such a person.

    I'm also excited about the plans to start planting trees all over DCA--something that should have been done before the park ever opened.

    I know Disney has a policy where they generally try and refrain from arresting guests, however, it may be time to re-examine this policy. From an outsider's view, it would appear that the actions (some) guests are taking with regard to vandalism in the parks, are becoming more and more frequent and more costly to maintaining the park. It bothers me to see and hear about such acts and I really think Disney should become more agressive at how they deal with these things so as to prevent further and potentially more serious incidents from occuring.
    Yeah, just letting these people get away with what they're doing doesn't sound like the best way to deal with it...especially if the remains are just going to end up being vacuumed and then dumped somewhere.

    I wonder why people honestly think that the remains will stay at the attraction, though...not the most intelligent of people, IMO. All the more why they should be escorted out of the park.

    I don't care if human remains can't physically do anything to harm me. It's still human remains. I'm going to Disneyland, not a burial site.


    That Adventures thing sounds like a lot of fun, but I'd probably never be able to afford something like that.

    Why does this DCA remake seem to just move further and further into the future? It was almost here, but every time Al comes out with an article, the timelines grow farther and farther away. I wish they would just start work. I am getting worried that the more they put off, the less that will end up getting done and the more that will end up getting cut. I hope they at least do some work to Paradise Pier or it will be an even bigger mess than it already is.

    Seriously I have never thought of people actually spreading ashes on rides...ewwww.

    The flying saucers were one of the surprise things that really got people excited. I hope they are able to figure out how to still make that happen. If they dont come through with some of the exciting stuff, it will be sad becuase then everyone will tack it up to Disney not living up to expectations again, no matter how good some of the other areas may turn out being.

    So Hollywood Pictures backlot is just a series of unusable structures.
    Muppets, Millionaire, Hollywood and Dine - worthless.
    Hyperion, Animation Bldgs. - good for one visit.
    Monsters Inc, Playhouse Disney - Ok for little kids

    That leaves Tower of Terror and a red trolley that I enjoy.

    I'm looking forward to participating in the ABD Hollywood tour. Sounds like the perfect Honeymoon trip to me!

    That is one of the best laughs I have had in a long while.... and I think there would be people to go for it!!!

    I don't know about pirates, but for HM maybe its all those stories you here about how the imaginears try to add dust to the place, that makes people think they will stay there for ever.

    I'm not that freaked out about the cremains being dumped (not that I would do it). I would be freaked out if a large amounts were allowed to build up in certain attractions. No kids, that's not pixie dust.

    Hmmm...I would maybe pay to put my cremains in stone in a walk way or attraction though. The trick is it couldn't be labeled. Otherwise it would feel like a burial site. See leave a legacy as an example.

    Al you say,
    Disneyland. A visit to the big parade warehouse where all the floats are kept, as well as a tour of the new hydraulic launch pad for the Disneyland fireworks round out the morning.

    I may be wrong, But I think Disney use Air canon to launch the firework.

    I think you can not get the speed you need to launch the firework from hydraulic.


    this is my thinking.

    So a ride on Pirates can now end up like this:

    "Good bye sweet prince."

    I am all over that Backstage Tour. I was actually pleasantly surprised at the price. The website says that in the value season with early booking it is $2079. Expensive? Yes, but considering what you get it is not bad. Especially for us locals that won't have airfare to pay for.

    Re: 11/13: A Pirate's (After) Life For Me

    The only thing I don't understand about this update is the need for such a major reconstruction to run Philharmagic in the Muppets theater. As far as I know, the only hardware needed would be the two extra projectors to show the side screen images. These aren't even 3D projectors, so their weight would be minimal. Perhaps there's some dimension to the theater that would have to be changed for the side screens to work.

    And I'm already saving my nickels for the big DL tour - sounds awesome!!!

    this is my thinking.
    Maybe the pad is on hydraulic lifts in order to direct the fireworks, but not necessarily to launch them.
