Honor, if a picture is worth a thousand words, thank you for writing 3,000 without really doing it.

Brevity is the soul of wit.

Are you sure you're the "same" Corruption? That's two nice comments in a row...


Danke, for the compliment.

Same Corruption,

Just enjoying the output over the past few days :)

Knew that you had it in you!

WestCot more like WestNot.

It's a shame.

Honor,
can you maybe write an article about what WAS planned for DCA before the budget was cut??

You can see some of the art from the brochure Disney sent out over at Alain Littaye's "Disney and More" blog.

Maybe in the future I'll try and write something...

I'd be curious to see more art about those hotels though. They look amazing.

Okay, I think that's great about what we could have gotten. But we just have to stop complaining! We get what's alreaday built. Sure it could be better. But it took a long time to get Disneyland to the level of greatness of where it is today. Just give it some time. California Adventure (Or whatever it will be called) Will grow into a wonderful theme park. Let's just face what we have and wait for it to be amazing!

^ A post on what was gonna be built would be fabulous! Alain had some pictures and some description but he didn't describe anything as lengthily or eloquently as you generally do on this blog. Especially now the time is ripe with the present being somewhat desolate regarding new construction as much that will take us up to 2012 and beyond has already been officially announced new stories unless you want to give some phase 2 tidbits.....
