Bring Back Toad!

It’s a wild cry, but you hear it all the time on the various Disney Themepark discussion boards. Never in Disney’s history have they brought an attraction back from the dead. Okay, they did dredge up the old film for America The Beautiful, but the attraction itself (circlevision) was never really dead (of course, it… Read More »Bring Back Toad!

Poor Tigger

and I do mean poor. The Orlando Sentinal continues coverage of the Tigger Molestation sham, I mean trial, with a story on Chartrand’s request to return to work.

The non-Disney Stores

The Children’s Place is one step closer to buying the once proud and vibrant chain of Disney Stores. The Disney Stores used to be known for providing a little bit of the Disney Magic via a cadre of highly trained employees (er Cast Members), a cache of unique Disney merchandise, and access to collectibe art and merchandise without having to visit one of the theme parks. Paul Pressler, who failed so miserably as President of Disneyland, led the charge of the Disney stores from 75 outlets to over 600. When he left to take the Disneyland position The Disney Stores seemed destined to be a strong part of The Walt Disney Company for the long term future.
