This is a small step forward for Disneyland.

Unfortunately it comes after many steps back.

Can't just leave a compliment, can you Spokker?

Talk about damning with praise.

Spokker is right though, but at least we are starting to move in the right direction again.

Of course it's good to be going in the right direction, but you don't have to end everything so negative. That's what drives people nuts about Spokker. He can't just say they're doing something right. He also has to say something bad instead of just leaving it alone.

He reminds me of the annoying relatives I'm going to have to deal with on Thanksgiving.

I love that the walkthrough is coming back. Of course, I won't see it because I'm avoiding Disneyland for many different reasons this year the most important of which is putting a holiday store in the Courtyard of Angels and adding characters/America to It's a Small World.

Another thing about this bitter-sweet opening is that it simply restores what was lost during harder times. A myriad of excuses were made for Disney about why the walkthrough closed initially, though no official reason was given.

Fans speculated that it was because terrorism or ADA compliance. Both were nonsense. They simply didn't want to spend the money maintaining anymore. It was the same reason the Subs closed.

Now both of those attractions are back (though Subs has to get a Nemo makeover, yuck). Good thing the Sleeping Beauty walkthrough didn't give them an opportunity to add Buzz and Woody.

What's the medical condition a person has when they're obsessed with something they despise?

"I'm avoiding Disneyland for many different reasons this year"

Give me an effing break.

If you're avoiding it why do you talk about it all the time?

Go get banned.

I love reading about Disneyland. I have many different books about Disneyland including John Hench's great Designing Disney.

However the Disneyland John Hench talked about is in many ways different from the Disneyland being operated today, in my opinion.

While I will no doubt return to Disneyland in the long-term future, especially to see DCA 2.0 next door, in the short-term I have decided to spend my recreation budget on other passions this year.
