    Exclamation DTD Report

    Just for fun, I went to DTD today. It was SO crowded! The parking lot was nearly full when I pulled in.

    Design-A-Tee was OPEN, but remember it was crowded there. The store is very small. (Because it replaced 1/2 of the Wonderful World of Memories store.)

    I checked at WoD and Art of Disney, but they are all out of the popular 3" tall Vinylmation Mickeys. The 9" Mickeys and create-your-own are still in stock, though. They go for about $40.

    P.S.- The MK closed due to capacity at 1 PM today and reopened at about 6.

    P.S.S.- I also passed by the old Preview Center while getting to/from DTD.

    Re: DTD Report

    You forgot to add these items:

    - The new stage at DTD has been finished for a while and features great digital lighting at night.
    - The Santa House in between WOD and Basin was great. Looked like a gingerbread home. Very nice.
    -T-Rex was silent when I visited. I wonder if they are testing a non screaming approach to their party calling to be seated.
    -Pleasure Island... deplorable. Nothing to do there but eat. Still, many guests do not realize the clubs have closed because no club signs have been taken down yet.
    -The new balloon ride project has begun installation near the Guest Relations booth by the Pretzels place in the West Side. (A similar balloon ride is already in operation at DLRP's Disney Village.)

    I also forgot to mention that I only visited the Marketplace yesterday. I didn't see what remains of PI or see the West Side.

    I pass that every time I visit Downtown Disney. It's been the Amateur Athletic offices for several years now. Building still looks the same on the outside though.

    They covered up Motions, 8trax, BET, Mannequins signs. But then keep the AC and CW signs up and then light the PI sign everynight. What are they thinking?

    Correction. T-Rex was back to being it's usual loudspeaker calling noise-pollution place today. Very disappointing.

    They should at least take the "P" out - since they removed the pleasure.

    Just call it Island - "I". Short and sweet.

    Lol - good one Denise. I suspect the signs for CW and AC are still there for the usage at private rentals currently?
    Let's put the Walt back in Disney!

    I was there a few days back, and they looked the same to me (mostly I looked at the AC). But I believe that there aren't private functions past this month.

    Sad that PI is no more, but good to hear about the balloon ride going in...

    Re: DTD Report

    I had just put up some photos of PI the other day, just of the new food area being put in. Waterfront dining.

    I also have a few short videos of Nova Era that I had taken. I was so happy to see them at DD on NYE after leaving Epcot (that was too techno for me).
