I wasted a lot of time on the old WDW Explorer. It has to be one of the best computer related things Disney has ever released.

Tokyo Disneyland hotels

The office Tokyo Disneyland website (in English) is http://www.tokyodisneyresort.co.jp/index_e.html

Click on "Resort Hotels", then the "Hotel List" to get the list of the "6 Official Hotels of Tokyo Disney Resort" on the monorail.

As an example of pricing, you can get a King Hilton Guest Room (390 square feet) in late May for 16,000 yen ($179) a night.

The Irish theme on the site today is "fabulous"!
The webcams that people sometimes set up in their rooms are great. I watched the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom from a balcony on the beach at the Poly this past New Years. It was ridiculously awesome to be able to watch the 360 fireworks from my living room! I only wish there were more webcams set up more often.

With respect to the Olympic festivities at Epcot. I do remember seeing summer Olympic trinkets (pins, etc) at the China pavilion but that's about it. I have no idea if Canada has or had anything.

What time is the 4 o'clock parade?
FP Photographers

We seldom buy more than 1-2 pix taken by them. I would concur with Matt regarding their photographers. I depended on them to take a family photo at Epcot and none of the pictures they took was worth buying. The composition was off…and someone always had their eyes closed or was looking elsewhere. I was very disappointed.

Hey! They answered my question about the Olympics. I = Hale. Thanks guys.

I wonder if NBC's deal with the Olympics hinders the Olympic presence in the World Showcase. You'd think that the Olympics would fit right in with Epcot's themes. When they can, they should totally get that in there.

It's worth noting that Corey Burton (WDW Explorer CD-ROM Narrator) is the Ghost Host for Disneyland's Haunted Mansion Holiday.

Also please note that in the show notes, one wrote "special Olympics events." Special Olympics are a totally different event.
