    Hello! Love your podcasts!

    FYI, the download now link points to the 8/17 podcast.

    I was able to find it under recent podcasts.

    Understandably kind of a down tone to the show. You guys seemed to hold back, there were a lot of pauses that spoke volumes. I could tell Len wanted to let loose, but deferred to the guest. I believe I heard a "sucks" associated with American Idol (I would agree). As for SpaceM, my understanding is they were forced do the renovation now because the track had become unsafe. Not much different from the DL experience except they don't want to spend the money now for a complete remake and/or they can't have such a major attraction down for the length of time required for a complete remake. They got caught trying to wring $$$'s out of that aging attraction and it bit them. The dynamics of the park are completely thrown off as everyone funnels to SplashM and BTM. It was not a good situation with the summer crowds. You didn't even get to the Fantasmic situation and the impact it has had on HS. I thought for sure Matt would mention Fantasmic. Keep up the good work and don't hesitate to let loose. It's what keeps me coming back for more.

    Interesting podcast. The economy is definitely affecting everything, sadly. Though I've heard some contradictory stuff about Space Mountain and American Idol, we'll see. I wish you guys had mentioned the proposed Fantasyland expansion, though - isn't that coming up sooner rather than later?

    No one mentioned "What Will You Celebrate?" Really? Disney should take that as in indication of the popularity of this year's promo. For my part, I think WWYC is a pretty decent idea with some not so great execution.

    This a good show but I also think many more would be appreciated. Less than a half hour is way too little time. As for YOAMD, I went there about 20 different days then and never got even a sniff of a prize. But I am going in about a month on my birthday to get a gift card and it should be $79 now, I will see.
