Dear Greg: In 1998, my wife and I purchased a Walk Around the World brick for our daughter, Olivia, at Disney World. It was located at the Transportation and Ticket Center. We visit Disney World an average of two times a year and made it a point to go and take pictures of her brick each visit. On our visit in March 2005 we failed to find the brick. Where the brick was once located, an automated park ticket machine had been installed. I spoke to someone at Walk Around the World who said the company that installed the ticket machines was supposed to reuse the bricks it pulled up but instead must have thrown them away. He vowed to get to the bottom of it and even walked out to where the brick used to be. Weeks went by and I never heard from him again. I've tried leaving voicemails at Walk Around the World, but they were never returned. Needless to say, Olivia is very disappointed. Her brick number is H07764.
Dear John: At first I thought this was about Orlando Magic Dwight Howard's free-throw shooting -- brick No. H07764. Rim shot! It seems that Disney staffers left a stone unturned in their original search for Olivia's brick. It was one of seven damaged when the ticket machines were installed, said WDW spokeswoman Zoraya Suarez. New bricks have been made and reinstalled in the general area they were located before, she said, adding "We will refurbish her paver to like-new condition in time for the family's next visit to the Magic Kingdom."
