    Ah yes, I remember those days. They didn't last long, did they.

    I doubt we'll ever see a vintage car shop again, but the good news is that the streetmosphere is starting to return.

    Still, to end on a rather pessimistic note, it seems to me that unlike Disneyland's, DLRP's management has no concept of nostalgia when it comes to its parks. I don't see it "restoring" Discoveryland to its former glory or realizing Main Street was better off when it sold hats, because to their PowerPoint-watching eyes there simply isn't an immediate pay-off attached to lure them into action like the fake rabbit at a dog race. And they might not even be aware that they ever sold vintage cars at all...

    Yikes, DLRP really wins on that one. I love the blossom trees around the station too, many fond memories

    I have another one -- the Fantasyland station. It's so cute all tucked away there as part of the Fantasy Festival Stage and the building itself is quite lavish. Compare this to the blue and white metalfest they have in its place over at the MK!

    Ooh yes, the walkway that allows you to walk from Main Street to Pirates without ever getting wet -- or at least it used to, before they removed the part that was the Bazaar. It's so nice to sit among the trees between Central Plaza and Frontierland especially.

    Pirates! It may not be in the best state at the moment, but it's still a marvel of imagineering: the sheer scale of the fortress assault scenes never fails to amaze me.
    And such a wondeful queue!

    And I believe that they are accompanied by bat sound fx if memory serves.

    Ah, BTM, the perfect ride...well apart from the queue...but moving on. And the bugs in the final tunnel are the perfect cap-off

    Indeed it certainly looks the best facing away from the castle if nothing else! The DL hotel looks like part of the scenery!

    I liked Peter Pan's Flight with all the "glittery" stuff on the sip at the end scene.

    Also: you can see hot French women!
