Scott is an OUTSTANDING critic. I've been reading his stuff for years. I trust his opinions 100%!

Well in the midst of all the layoffs, I was able to get a full time summer job at WDW in Attractions, on a Summer Alumni College Program...not sure what ride I'll be working yet, but look for me this summer! I'll be sure to give a true "insider" look as always

Nice Nine Dragons review, Scott. Loved the last line about using your credit card. LOL!

And Corey, gratz on the job! Good luck!
