an adult only resort sounds fantastic. not only for those wanting romance, but just those who are sick of kids!

I know where Annette and I are staying for Reunion 2011.

Since y'all are being generous and sharing all your gifts this year, I'll share mine - free wi-fi across the entire resort. Enjoy!

This was a dangerous podcast. They were so convincing that they sounded like this stuff was reality. People could totally take clips out of context and run with that on forums ;-0. Funny though, there is a bit of truth to some of these based on heavy rumor vibes, CM leaks, and with credible evidence (construction permits):

1. New DVC resort, but over at River Country
2. New indoor coaster/dark ride based on Monster's Inc. going next door to Toy Story Midway Mania (announcement to coincide with Monster Inc 2)
3. New continent added to AK based on Australia Great Barrier Reef (taking over Rafikis Cons Station)... maybe we will get another coaster, but it will at least be another E-ticket

Quite honestly, with tight budgets going forward and the HUGE success of TSMM)...I think new coaster construction is a thing of the past with Disney. They know they can't be the best with that technology...and to do it justice it has to be the size and scope of Expedition Everest. No, we are going to see more 3D KUKA based robotic arm rides (similar to Sum of all Thrills and Harry Potter Forbidden Journey). I am an engineer...and it has become a reality in my company as well (scrapping big budget projects for smaller ones that maximize the $$).

Ah, I remember hearing rumours before the recession about Disney possibly constructing some light rail towards the AK/All-Star area. (Think trolleys). But as long as we're on that dream, how about another monorail resort somewhere along the EPCOT beam?

I'd skip the monorail to the airport, but how about a Singapore-style Maglev? Now that would be totally cool and would fit right in with Tomorrowland...
Gift 1 and 2

The Wonders of Life pavillion reopened, including the bikes and Cranium Command etc.

A one-way walkway from the bridge into Tomorrow running south, in between Noodle Station and Monsters, Inc, parallel with Main Street, so that people can leave the Magic Kingdom in the evening more easily, without having to fight through all of Main Street - in the same style as the arcades in Disneyland Paris. It could also lead to a new sit-down restaurant, near the park entrance, to the east of Tony's Town Square.

3) Mr Toads wild ride brought back in the new Fantasyland expansion using new technologies like that of test track and dinosaur.

A value resort that can accomodate a family of 5, other than having to pay the price for a family suite. Think POR but in the value category.

Loved the show idea. My dissertation on this topic would not fit in the space provided, so I used my blog (carynsliferocks dot blogspot dot com) to add my 2 cents :)
