FWIW, we went to DLR and DCA's for 3 days in July. DCA kept our interest for...oh, mebbe 4 hours. The tractors would have been the highlight of the trip, but the tortillas definitely won out .
BTW is there ANYONE who wins a WWTBAM polo shirt in DCA? I REALLY wanted to win one and spent all day that Sunday, playing. I've won 3 shirts at MGM and have even gotten up to the 125,000 point question before I crapped out, but the questions at DCA are a LOT harder from 8,000 points on. Anyone wanna trade a DCA shirt for an MGM shirt?
Ahem....uh Jeff? You're actually 50% of a topic. "Jeff and Bean's Own Topic" is comprised of 2 people. You're 1 person. That's half. Boy they don't teach you well in Orange County, do they? It's OK...I'm going to be living in the "other" Orange County in about 4 weeks (we close on the house 2 weeks from today) and I don't think their school system is any better .
As for Millionaire...forget about Fastest Fingers...the winner of THAT is just someone who has no clue of the answer and keys in B-D-C-A really fast (and yes, I DID get into the Hot Seat one time that way ). Your best chances of winning is when one of those BDCA people have just got in...chances are they'll crap out early so if ou can hang in there and answer quickly when the questions are flying, you may have a chance.
Oooh, Jeff, yet another swipe slung at the poor, dying Disney Store--gosh, it's getting almost painful to go into our local Maine version! But where else can we be in direct contact with reportedly employees of the Walt Disney Company, so we can keep them up to date with the latest Randy Thornton audio creation which we just bought at the local Borders, or such, which will more than likely never make it to the shelves of the Disney Store which is much too busy clearing shelves for the latest festive Pooh wear which I suppose I could buy at our wondrous Walmart if I ever felt so inclined--am I making myself clear? Boy, if it weren't for that ever- looming spectre of Walt that appears every time that now nebulous term, "Disney", pops into mind, ........ Mike. P. S. And speaking of popping, I know I'll still probably pop in to the Disney Store this weekend if we venture to the mall--but you know how those abusive relationships go, .......
so pathetic that I can hardly stand to visit. Went in last weekend to see if they were selling this Decembers dvd's (they weren't), and I was amazed at how low they had sunken. There is virtually no art for sale, few books and very little music. What they did have was a vast assortment of what appeared to be childrens Disney character Halloween costumes, which wouldn't have fit me very well, even if I was inclined to wear one (which I'm not). Damn... Just what a boomer such as myself needs...matching parent/child Halloween Costumes. We really need to stop beating up on TDS. It's way too easy, and doesn't provide much of a challenge.
Jeff...any Disney Radio news that you can get me caught up with?
Also, please get them to fix DCA by the summer of 2004. I will be in the neighborhood. I can show you where Walt is buried if you have wheels. Show you the locations of the old studios (if I can remember where they are), or take you past Walt's Last Home. Did I tell you that when we were driving there we passed Diane at a stop sign?
....and then they go and create something like Haunted Mansion Holiday, which although I haven't seen it, seems quite imaginative, given the current state of affairs(even if it was built upon a pre-existing idea). They just continue to try and convince us that Tokyo isn't the only place where old-fashioned imagineering lives..... Mike.
Last time at Dland, I looked into the "studio" under the Rocket rods "old" boarding area and all of the Mark and Zippy stuff and signs were gone. Must have wanted new paint or somethig atrocius!
BTW Sharon, I told you Bean and I only have 66% of this topic. The other 33 is our beloved SK!
You just wont let us sleep.
Don't sell yourself short...this is YOUR topic. And Bean's too (though I think he's even more quiet than you are). I butt into enough topics as it is...I just happened to INVENT this one .
As for JPM&Z....something BIG had to have happened, cuz one day they were there and one day they weren't and there wasn't a word about it. Nothing. Even now, if you look for their names on the 'net, they're just gone. Like they never existed. Which is a shame because I thought they were the best DJ's on the whole station.
It has been a fantastic season this year, with an incredible finish!!! It reminds me of that old Disney movie about the Angels, too. So beat your Thunderstix, wave the Rally Monkey and believe in Angels!
I'm a Native New Yawka...I GOTTA love Dem Yanks and Dem Mets. Well, it's as much love as one who's not really a baseball fan can muster, anyway (hence the term "woodwork fan"...when they're in the Series, we come out of the woodwork).
My husband and I had already figured out if they won, the victory parade would be at DCA. Wow...I bet there were PEOPLE there that day and EVERYTHING!
(yeah, I know that the benefits sucked), and all you folks can talk about is baseball?
I really miss the Magic Kingdom Club. I recall saving $1000.00+ a a couple of vacations.
Anyone know why the shut down is taking place. I must confess that every time that I got the new coupons I was always underwhelmed at the offers. A free wine glass at Fultons is not enough to get me in the door...
