    DLR attendance policy

    Well, your holiness, as I noted elsewhere the current contract (including parking) allows part tiers to choose either weekend or weekday availability. Just because you’re blowing smoke doesn’t mean you’ve been elected Pope!

    DLR attendance policy

    COVID is on the rebound and even after more than a year CMs I know are telling me that many people are still not back in shape. COVID has spread through parades and shows like wildfire. Have you seen MSEP go out with three or four dwarves or missing an entire unit? Lion King has been dark for...

    DLR attendance policy

    Facts are often inconvenient things. FYI—the new Master Services contract has a provision wherein part-timers can select either weekend or weekday availability. Disney needs more bodies. They are seriously understaffed and this new policy will likely make it worse, not better. And will...

    Are there no workhouses?

    Angels tell Anaheim they're opting out of their lease on Angel Stadium

    Yes--now that I look more closely at the concept art I think that's the more likely intent. It looks to be aimed towards the North side of the little angled tab on the Southwest corner of the Splash show building, which presumably would accomodate the up ramp from Critter Country to the...

    New Orleans Square is getting Flattened

    I wonder if they are going to make the walkway in front of the former platforms all Fan!! viewing area and use the enlarged rear area as walkway with two-way traffic. Potentially those free-standing lamposts could be anchoring ropes and stanchions. I'll take a look when I'm in the parks on...

    Angels tell Anaheim they're opting out of their lease on Angel Stadium

    This will be a bumpy ride before the dust settles. If Darkbeer is ever released from his NDAs, the telling of this story will be a two popcorn bucket event.

    Angels tell Anaheim they're opting out of their lease on Angel Stadium

    I question that whole transition. It would require relocating the entire West Side Cooling complex from between Mansion and Pirates show buildings, plus presumably demolishing the West Sider CM cafe and the NO Train Station. But if they can shorten TSI and put an S-curve in the DLRR, then I...

    Angels tell Anaheim they're opting out of their lease on Angel Stadium

    Oh, I expect there will be some regrouping. I still say the big game is when Disney and Anaheim sit down to do some old-fashioned horse trading. Each one has things the other wants. I view Disney Forward the same way I do the original Westcot--throw it at the wall and see if it sticks...

    PERMITS

    I'm told by my Bothan Spies that the walkway goes up the south side of the GCH DVC building opposite Goofy's Flying School. It breaks through the fence behind Corn Dog Castle where I presume all the construction you can see is for the actual entrance gate, which opens up between Corn Dogs and...

    Disney not subject to Anaheim’s ‘living wage’ ballot measure, judge rules - OCR/SCNG

    No. Most workers under this contract will be making $17.50 now. It isn’t until 6/2023 that the base rate goes up to $18.50. I talked to an old family friend who works in attractions. They said that after the NO vote last month the reality sank in for people. Too many CMs can’t afford to go on...

    Disneyland police blotter: Here are some of the crimes reported in September - OCR/SCNG

    “Oh, look at how clever we are—nobody has ever thought of lighting up behind this bush!””

    Disneyland police blotter: Here are some of the crimes reported in September - OCR/SCNG

    I was surprised to learn that the dogs can sniff both. Drugs and explosives. Horticulture has different dogs for bedbugs.

    The End Of An Era - Captain Kidd's Buffet Closed Permanently

    Oh my Mickey! First Sambo’s, then Tiffy’s, and now Capt. Kidd. I’m telling you, the resort district has been going downhill ever since they took out the giant Chevron man and Stovall’s space age decor.
