    I’m pretty disappointed that the Main Street Theater may not be happening. That park could use a quality show and I was excited to see something Broadway quality. Sad, sad, sad.

    Other park news is pretty exciting though. I’ve never been to Japan, but I hope to be able to talk my husband into going sometime in the next 30 years (once in a lifetime trip!) and if there was another unique Disney park, I would be twice as interested in seeing it. Universal building another park also has me salivating. Their quality of themeing lately has been phenomenal!

    Thanks for the updates!
