    Radiator Springs Racers No Longer Works In The Rain?!? Is TDA Broken, or Just Broke?

    Driving home a few days ago, I stopped at my favorite Caesars Palace bar and then restaurant for a pit stop. While in the bar before being seated for dinner, a couple nearby was telling the bartender how silly SoCal can be in inclement weather. They had several examples, but one of them was "all...

    Catching up on local news, and.... What the heck is this about? Is this just the once-good OC Register falling into the crap trap of most modern "journalism", or is this a real problem now?

    Theme Parks Have Rides, Right? WDW vs. DLR 2022 Edition

    Now that Covid is over and things are back to normal I thought it would be interesting to see where things stand on the Ride Count between WDW and DLR, after the last few years of delayed projects finally opening.

    Rodent Infestation Closes Main Street Souvenir Stand - Mickey Absolved of Crime

    Apparently they've got a rat problem at Disneyland. Not surprised. Guide 2, after a semi-exhaustive and Nightcap fueled Google search, appears to be the souvenir stand over on the west side of the train station, right next to the Guided Tour Gardens. Which must explain its rather utilitarian...

    Gas in California is now averaging $5.88 per gallon for 87 octane regular. This is the highest gas price in the nation, even higher than Hawaii. As a point of reference, even after the price hikes of the last three or four months, gas in Texas is currently averaging $3.85 per gallon. At what...

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

    We've all been through a lot over the past 18 months. It's been an emotional roller coaster for everyone, and things still aren't looking too bright right now as we look toward 2022; inflation, gas prices, supply chain woes, Britney's post-conservatorship career, etc. So it is with a heavy...

    Surprise! Red Tier Now Begins Sunday; Downtown Disney Restaurants???

    I know it seems like we don't need yet another thread talking about how Disneyland is still closed, but it seems like this is news that some folks may need and that shouldn't be buried in a months old thread with an unrelated title. So I apologize in advance if this is redundant, but it seems...

    Poll: What Will Disneyland's Operating Hours Be This Summer?

    I just posed this question in the massive Covid thread, but then I thought it would be fun to do a poll instead! :D Assuming their "Proposed Reopening" (the language currently on Disneyland.com) is approved by Governor Newsom, Disneyland and DCA will obviously have drastically reduced operating...
