(What's your opinion?)

Featured Attraction

This week we look at The Oasis Exhibits at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Review System Spotlight

This week we take a look at the Pop Century Resort. MousePlanet readers like it, rating it 3.7 out of five planets. Our featured review this week is by menicksmom of California.

menicksmom wouldn't mind staying there again, though she'd prefer to get a room closer to the main Classics Hall building, earning the resort a 4-planet rating.

You can also find the Pop Century Resort in our Park Guide.

Last Week on MousePlanet

Andrew Rich, down at MousePlanet Global Headquarters told you what you may have missed on the MousePlanet site last week if you're not visiting regularly.

Listener Feedback

Paul Emery wrote in to note that he is not a big fan of Stitch and wishes that Disney would not keep using the character.

Bob Becker feels that Stitch has taken on the role of "bad" good guy previously held by Donald Duck, but he wishes that Disney would instead use his "good" good guy persona, as he displayed at the end of the original movie.

Stuart Sternberg really enjoyed Episode 314, and thinks that our comments on Stitch were right on point. He also wondered, if each of us could open our own restaurant in Disney World where would you put it and what type of eatery it would it be? (Listen to the show for our answers!)

Sharla called in to give a great review of Up that was remarkably spoiler-free (which is good because Mark hasn't seen it yet).

John Papas noted that Mike's comment about a hand gesture with 2 fingers down and 2 fingers up related to Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, and thinks that it was what he was taught was a bad thing by his old Sicilian boss, called a "cornuto". John also provided a Wikipedia link for the gesture. After we recorded, Mike checked and found that Steven Tyler did not make that gesture in the film, but rather had one finger down and the rest up, negating his original argument.

Rene wrote in asking if MousePlanet has an email newsletter that she can subscribe to. Not yet, but we're working on it.

March of Dimes

Mark's walk for the March of Dimes went well, though he did not make his goal. MousePlanet readers and MouseStation listeners made up more than half of the non-Mark-contributed money - thanks so much! The donations page should remain active through the end of the month, so you there's still time to donate, if you'd like. Just go to Mark's fundraising page and help to provide a better chance to prevent prematurity and to help those babies that are born prematurely.
