  1. Glad to hear this, but what’s the hold up with bringing back the REAL magic: LIVE ENTERTAINMENT???

    Still waiting for a return to the stage for:
    Beauty & The Beast
    Finding Nemo
    Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue
    Indiana Jones
    Turtle Talk with Crush
    Monsters Inc Laugh Floor
    Parades (and not these sad excuses the parks are trying to do now)

    COME ON! The 50th celebration is coming up soon, and without entertainment, it loses the magic.
