News and Views

Thanks to all MouseFest attendees!

We had a wonderful time again this year at MouseFest. This year's events were a smashing success! Thanks to all of you who came out to meet us. Mike Scopa and I will both be recapping the events in the next week or so, so keep an eye out for the stories. I'm exhausted from all of the festivities, though, so the Update will be a bit short this week. I've got plenty of photos, However, so I'll be spreading them out over the next couple of weeks.

Pleasure Island rumor update

It appears that the plan to demolish and rebuild and/or refurbish the entire north side of Pleasure Island is indeed true. The lake side of the island will become a series of third-party themed restaurants. We haven't yet confirmed the timetable for this process, aside from the fact that demolition of the West End Stage and Hub Stage will begin shortly after January 1. The outlook of the Adventurer's Club is less certain, however. sources indicate that there are three possible futures for the club, and its final fate has yet to be determined. The club may be spared and remain in its current location, may actually be moved across the street, possibly to the current location of 8-Trax, or may disappear along with the rest of the north side establishments. As we find out further information, we will pass it along.

Main Street work underway

Work to repair and replace the rotted portions of the 34-year-old Main Street Railroad Station is nearing completion. The work, which included replacing plaster and the rotted wood beneath it, is targeted to be completed before Christmas. The construction walls and tarps are nearly gone from the north side of the station, though the $40,000 custom screen remains on the south side for now. With the flagpole moved to a location in front of City Hall and the Christmas tree currently in the upper Rose Garden near the castle, station-goers were treated to a view up Main Street all the way to Cinderella Castle blocked only by the garland strung across Main Street.

Holiday decorations at the Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom's Christmas tree is currently installed in the upper Rose Garden, so that the stage for Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa to host the taping of the Christmas Parade this past weekend could be in Town Square, with a clear view up Main Street. Later this week, after the stage is removed, the tree will disappear for one day while it is removed, taken around the outside of the park, then installed back in Town Square, along with the flagpole.

Viewed from the right angle, it looks as if Walt himself is trimming the Christmas tree. Photo by Mark Goldhaber.

Shuttle, limos and Disney's Magical Express fight off proposal

Last week, we reported that shuttle and limo drivers joined with Disney and Mears to fight an airport proposal to ban all limo drivers and shuttle services from the baggage claim ariea on the airport's second level. It appears that those efforts were successful. At a public hearing of the airport's Ground Transportation Committee, that proposal was not among the draft recommendations presented.

Ears to the ground

…Following the Contemporary and Polynesian Resorts, the next Disney hotel to receive an upgrade to its furnishings will be the Caribbean Beach Resort. Work is expected to begin early next year.

The locker rental stand area is being converted to stroller rental, with the lockers moving elsewhere.
