How quickly we forget, with all the TV episodes and straight-to-video sequels, Lilo and Stitch did start on the silver screen...

If you caught the pbs American Experience about Walt he based all of Epcot on brand name businesses working together. The changes are a double edged sword for me: part of me wants everything to stay lIke I remembered it as a child. But how can you get mad when, if you visit Disneyworld every 2-3 years like we do, and spend TONS of cash to do so, you get new experiences every time!

Just returned from Disney World, the Starbucks on Miain Street was packed with people. Starbucks at Disney has been accepted well.

"Some times you need a little old fashioned."

We may complain, but Disneland and Disney World don't seem to be hurting for lack of patrons. When one group fusses that they will never return another group takes their family's first trip and falls in love.
