    Just wanted to share this because it took me a while to find this myself. (Apparently searing the Hasbro site isn't as simlpe as it sounds.)

    http://www.hasbro.com/monopoly/

    Go there and you can view the board to see exactly what made it, and where they can be found.

    What with the money increase? Inflation hit this game hard. Nice to see some familiar places though, Times Square, JFK, and Mall of America, in my other home town.

    Thanks for showing us!

    Uh oh . . . bad form. On the www.monopoly.com website, the board they show says "Disney World" and not "Walt Disney World."
