      I'm not quite sure I understood the "MexiCAN or MexiCANT" comment...

        That was a fun read. I can't imagine Banderas' reaction was very good to that joke, but that would make it all the more fun!

          At the end of Ms. Teeter's remarks, someone handed her a machete, which she used to cut a vine, sending up a pole, which signaled someone to let an entire trainload of Disney's finest up and coming stars hurtling down the tracks of Expedition Everest, sending a plume of confetti and smoke into the air as yet another Disney attraction was opened to the world.

          Yes... and No. The front car featured 'High School Musical' stars, while the next car featured the groups 'The Jonas Brothers' and 'Everlife'. The Jonas Brothers have little to do with the company with exception of a song on DisneyMania 4. Everlife is signed with Hollywood Records and their cover of 'Real Wild Child' is featured in The Wild. They are followed by Kyle Massey (That's So Raven) and I believe Chris Massey - who is a Nickelodeon star.

          They're followed by Cole & Dylan Sprouse (The Suite Life), Ricky Ullman (Phil Of The Future), Aly & AJ (Hollywood Records), and I believe B5 which have covered several songs for Disney but are signed to Bad Boy Records.

            You know, that smoke effect is pretty neat. It makes that drop seem like you're in
            an avalanche. WDI: hint, hint... "-)

              I like the table of beer.
              Why can't they serve Corona regularly in the parks?

                Antonio Banderas is neither a "MexiCAN" nor a "MexiCANT" -- he is from Spain, not Mexico.

                  Great article. I wonder, though, why it is labelled as a Kevin Yee article when it isn't his article at all? Why isn't it credited as a Guest article? Oh well, interesting, funny, good article anyway

                    Good point, MasterGracey. Kevin's usually around after posts; maybe he'll give us a response?

                      This "outside" column came to me rather than to Al, and seemed to match the content of the Kevin column (WDW) rather than a Guest column, which is unspecified. Which is a long way of saying that I didn't even realize it should have been a Guest column to start with, and just didn't think of it until after it had been sent off to Al as a Kevin article. There. More than you ever wanted to know about miceage internal operations

                        That's exactly what I was thinking...did he seriously ask Antonio Banderas, a Spaniard if he was a MexiCAN/CANT? I have to admit I really just looked at the pics after that because I'm not that impressed with journalists who don't do enough research to know the ethnicity of someone and yet are willing to make a joke about it.

                          I think the joke is that in a film (I think it was Once Upon a Time in Mexico) Johnny Depp asked (or was it Cheech?) Antonio Banderas Charater if he was MexiCAN or MexiCANT. I know that line was in that film. It's just a joke. A bad one, but a joke nontheless.

                          Edit to add - Yes It was Jhonny Depp for sure, but I don't remember who he says it to. I want to say Cheech.

                            Nevertheless, it's nice to hear that. Thanks for responding, Kevin!
