Rotten Tomatoes has Ratatouille ranked with a 92 out of 100.’s Toon Kirby has his review up too. I’ll be seeing it on Sunday! Woo Hoo!
  • has some humorous suggestions for future Pixar films. I think Space Monkeys actually has some potential.
  • Plans for the Anaheim Garden Walk go ahead with some vertical work taking place now. The official site now has a list of some of the food vendors who will populate the outdoor mall that will connect Disneyland with the plot of property planned for the third gate.
  • Kevin Yee talks about some changes he’s seen at EPCOT recently.
  • Cypress Gardens, about 45 minutes south of WDW, has delayed the grand opening of the historic ‘Starliner’ Wooden Roller Coaster. Apparently they’re still getting the computer system to function properly. No word yet on the new date.
