BTW...Shop Disney has a Rainbow collection, with 10% going to GLSEN for anti-bullying in schools. Go to shopdisney.com and search Rainbow Collection. There is a rainbow mickey ball cap, shirts, pins...
Interesting quote from the change article... " Alexander-Manley admits that while diehard traditionalists will be upset over the move he does not feel that will be the response from the majority of attendees."
They seem quite smug.
Guess what, I'm sticking with June...the weather is cooler than August, the DVC Points are cheaper, some youngsters are still in school, so fewer public meltdowns by exhausted kids...just a much more enjoyable time in the parks overall. It seems they want to change the focus away from Disney, I guess they don't realize for many of us sharing a fun day and the atmosphere at Disney with like minded people IS the main draw for many of us.
Quite smug indeed. I've never understood such flippant views on tradition. Its nice for things to have a historical basis and some of us have some great associations with that particular time of year. Do you think OMW will still keep/encourage the unofficial days in the park in June?
Having a long day; thinking about next year. I did enjoy my time on the crawl & with the group, and hope to spend more time with you next year. (Adjusting my trip, and planning way earlier, so I am more prepared for what the experience is like and can spend more time with the group!)
