A JHM Reader Challenge: The Epcot English Lesson
Last Friday night -- after a long, tortuously slow commute in and out of the city (We had to go into Logan Airport to pick up Michelle and Alice for my parent's 50th anniversary party) -- Nancy and I decided that we all needed a break. Which is why (later that same evening) we all found ourselves at...

Seven Tips for Getting the Most out of this weekend's "ABC Super Soap" event at Disney-MGM
For football fans, it's the Super Bowl. For guys who collect comic books, it's San Diego's Comic-Con. And -- for Disney dweebs -- it's the National Fantasy Fan Club (THE club for Disneyana enthusiasts) 's annual convention. But -- if you're a serious ABC soap opera fan -- there's only one place that...

Debunking Big Thunder Rumors
It used to be something that theme park fans would consider a comical cliché. How you'd board a Disney theme park attraction and then ... Something would go horribly wrong!? I mean, think about it, people. Isn't this the exact same story point that drives the action in Disneyland's "Star Tours" and ...

When it comes to Disney, when is "good enough" good enough?
As you read this, 2000 journalists are in the process of being wined and dined at Walt Disney World. The Mouse has really rolled out the red carpet for these reporters. Treating them to after-hours parties at the Florida theme parks, which feature live performances by top name entertainers. (This year...

Okay ... now tell me what you REALLY think ...
Well, it wasn't quite "Jim, You Ignorant ***!" But it was pretty damned close. On the heels of Monday's less-than-enthusiastic article about "Mickey's Philharmagic," I got WHOMPED with a pile of mail from people who had also seen this new Fantasyland attraction during last week's previews and absolutely...

Rumblings at the WDI water cooler
It's a really interesting time at Walt Disney Imagineering. Plenty of people on edge right now. Which -- given all the rumors that have been flying around Flower Street lately -- is understandable. All this talk about another round of lay-offs coming in October. Right at the start of Disney's new fiscal...

Did Disney execs unintentionally slip "Philharmagic" a Mickey?
Sometimes I hate my job. What do I mean by that? Well ... I know that there are a lot of very nice people at Walt Disney Imagineering and Walt Disney Feature Animation who worked very hard on "Mickey's Philharmagic." Truly talented folks who labored for months to turn classic Disney characters (toons...

Why For? : Epcot's Space Center, Jim Korkis and Walt Disney World swamp boat rides
First up, Lee H. sends along a note and a photo, seeking some info about Disney's original plans for Epcot's Space pavilion: Hey Jim, First off, let me just say that I love the site. This is despite the fact that you tend to leave me hanging on some of your longer stories (remember Tower Tales...

Covering the Coverage
Let me say at the very start of this column that my intention here is NOT to make light of last Friday's tragic events at Disneyland. After all, a man died. And 10 other tourists were injured. Some of them seriously. So there's nothing fun or funny to be found in a subject like that. But -- that said...

Why For wouldn't J.K. Rowling let Universal Studios build a Harry Potter stunt show?
No doubt, you've heard this rumor before. It's the story that's been fascinating Disney and Harry Potter fans for the past few weeks. But it was H.C. who did the best job with this question when they wrote in to ask: Every once in a while, Universal Orlando President Bob Gault holds a "Lunch...
