#news Sorry if this has been posted already... Heard today that Big Thunder has taken longer to reopen because they added new cars and the new cars were tearing up the old tracks, so they had to add new tracks as well.
Also, they aren't entirely sure what to do with the subs, refurb or replace them. Right now they are still on the refurb list. I for one, am all for a replacement.
I had not seen this posted... El Capitan to host a Mary Poppins sing-a-long. Richard Sherman is the special guest tomorrow night. Click link for more

Dont forget to grab a sweet treat from Maurice's Treats! At the time, (isn't there more now?) the adorable cart featured 3 “Twists” and a new signature beverage: Boysen Apple Freeze.
In a tribute to the historic Carnation Plaza Gardens, a shield over the archway leading from Fantasy Faire to Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland displays the letters “CPG.”
