Is Universal Creative on a mole hunt?
"Awesome" ... "Amazing" ... "The very best attraction that I've been on" ... These were just a few of the breathless reactions that Universal Orlando visitors gave to guest survey takers as they stumbled off of the studio theme park's newest attraction, "Revenge of the Mummy." Which has been blowing...

Would Disneyland have been just as successful in Santa Ana or La Mirada?
Hey, gang! As most of you already know, I'm in the middle of writing an unauthorized history of Disneyland. A tell-all book that (If the Good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise & there ain't no meltdown) will hopefully be out in the Summer of 2005. Just in time to capitalize on all the hoopla...

And would Disney's Golden Celebration have been better if its history portion had stayed in Tomorrowland?

WDI has a solution to Epcot's "Soarin'" problem
Epcot has a big problem. That "Soarin'"show building (the one that's currently under construction behind "The Land" pavilion in Future World) is huge.

Ready or not, here comes Superstar Limo ... again!
Didn't Stephen King actually write a book about something like this? Yes! "Christine." You know, the one about the haunted automobile?

The Big One That Got Away: Madison's Dive
So what's your favorite club at Walt Disney World's Pleasure Island? Me? Though I do enjoy an occasional visit to the Comedy Warehouse, I have to admit that I'm mostly an Adventurer's Club fan. I mean, I can't tell you the number of times that I've found myself in the Library, watching as Professor Otis...
