Monday Mouse Watch : It's lights out for DAK's "Rivers of Light" parade, while Beastly Kingdomme makes a character-based comeback
For Disney's Animal Kingdom fans ... It's one of those bad news / good news kind of day. The bad news is ...

Does WDI plan on gagging our next Commander-in-Chief as part of the 2009 redo of WDW's "Hall of Presidents" ?

"The Disney Mountains: Imagineering at Its Peak" will be a tiptop addition to any Disneyana fan's library

Another Kingdom That Never Came: Disneyland expansion plans circa 1976
Mike P. wrote in yesterday to say: I loved last week's "Why For " about all the pavilions and attractions that were planned for Epcot and Disney World but ultimately never built.
