It's all OK though, I was just trying to keep them out of EP because it was the most crowded today, but if they got EP done, then they'll just have more time later in the week, (2 days allotted for each park) to complete MK
True commando, always able to go to the next plan and optimize it on a dime (even if it stops your heart for a moment)

Well here's the latest rumors

You might have read a while back that DTD was going to get a facelift, then it died out, now the rumor is back but a little different then the 1st time, IMO I think they indeed will redo DTD while the economy is still shaky, it only makes sense to do it while they can save some money with bids since companies would rather make a little less to keep them going and with a huge job such as this they will make up any money if it turns out well from other jobs that they will acquire, The current Disney Administration is very wise, they are spending a lot of cash on upgrades to the parks and properties, even though it's not a good economy, but they are saving, tens of millions or more and keeping people working This is something I believe will definitely happen

Princess meet & greet is rumored to open in Sept where Snow White used to be

I saw a couple more less then thrilling, got to drop everything and get right over to see them Limited Time Only events, This week Voices Of Liberty are singing and doing some President speeches (isn't that pretty much what they do anyway)

Also I see a chalk art festival as a upcoming week

With all these exciting events maybe the week I'm there The Businessmen Briefcase Brigade will be there

I'm just finding it hard to believe that a lot of the events are going over someone's desk to be approved

Yeah, but this time it's Presidential speeches IN DISNEY, that's like how Space Mountain is the mouse trap IN THE DARK. . . woooooooooo aaahhhhhhhh


Also I see a chalk art festival as a upcoming week

Special pixie dusted Disney chalk

With all these exciting events maybe the week I'm there The Businessmen Briefcase Brigade will be there

Oh no please I really really wanted that for MY week

I'm just finding it hard to believe that a lot of the events are going over someone's desk to be approved

I really wanted to like this promo when they announced it, I thought it had endless possibilities, but it needs a WOW factor with maybe a little risk, something kids are going to want to do ( and bug you till they do it), something that you might have to change around some of your plans so you can go to it

I completely agree with you Ron, it has such great potential to be a much better promotion that it turned out to be. Even Redneck lawnmower races would be more exciting than the latest "Limited Time Magic" they are promoting for both WDW and DL.

You must be green with envy

This promotion clearly must be for laughs and the joke is going over our heads.

Now that's a theory I haven't thought of

I just hope the weeks I'm there is not the Dapper Dan's doing Boy Band tunes, I don't know if I could stand there if they busted out some BackStreet Boys or Color Me Bad

It would be a disaster if the Dapper Dans did Back street boys! It's so wrong in so many ways! It's sad in a sense that they could have done so much more with this years promo than they did. It had so much potential to be so much more than what it ended up being. It's obvious that I've more imagination than they do, which is a sad, sad thing.

I can't tell one of those boy bands from another, but they made tons of money. Wish I had been smart enough to have been involved/ connected somehow. Then, I could live in Golden Oak and go commando daily to WDW.

I got to vent a little here, I wanted to buy 1000 shares of Disney stock about a year and a half ago when it wass in the $26 - 27 range, well after being talked out of it by my wife and family due to the economy and $27,000 would not be a wise investment, I got to thank all of them yesterday when I checked the stock price it was only $54 a share, and now I know why they all still work This is not the 1st time something like this happened

I have a couple things I've been watching for awhile, when it is time, I know now just buy it and don't say anything until it pays off I have to go with my gut feeling just like I do at the parks,I have a goal , to be retired by the time I'm 50 and I have a little over 6 years to do it

ARRRGGG!!! I think this falls into the what were they thinking when their brilliant promo dept thought this one up. Run, Run, Run away as fast as you can to avoid the Dapper Dans singing the Back Street Boy songs!!
Beam me up Scotty, there's no intelligent life in Disney's Imagination department!!
