A friend on mine just sent me some stuff from some group he belongs to (sorry I don't know which one) that has photos of the Hub which for all intent purposes is gone. There is a big box in the middle which I am assuming is there to protect the Partners Statue. But everything else is just mounds of dirt. I don't know if this is just around the planter or the whole area as they don't give any indication at all and there is nothing to compare it to. :confused:
Also they said, dated yesterday, that the new automated ticket machines at Disneyland's Main Entrance would be going into service February 1st. Are these like the ones in Florida where guests insert the tickets themselves instead of handing them to a Cast Member who then inserts them for you as we out here on the West Coast are all to dumb to figure this out for outsleves? It should be interesing to see how much the line slows down as newbies try to figure out which end of the ticket goes in and where does it go in and where does it come out. This will be a golden opportunity for some serious Herd Watching at a prime location.
