Published: February 21, 2007 at 3:54 PMChurch Street Station? I thought it was closed years ago and hopefully it will stay closed and inspire the City of Orlando to think of something more appealing for it's Downtown area than a collection of overpriced watering holes. As a transplant from California, I'm happy that the Disneyland resort is making improvements and it would be wonderful if the Disney California Adventure could actually be transformed into a park worthy of Disney's name. If the Disney folks in LA can make something good happen, maybe it will inspire the Disney World team but I'm not holding my breath.

Published: February 21, 2007 at 8:26 PMI could have told you that Pearlman was a con man. Only a con man finds 5 guys pretty much off the street, pays for a minimal amount of recording time, and sits on his butt while the band tours and collects 90%...and only a sucker buys the deal. Only one guy out of a hundred (Justin Timberlake) has emerged from "Lou Pearlman" school with any assemblance of a career. Let that be a lesson to all wannabe pop stars out there.
On a similar note. Disney is to be thanked once again for ruining a portion of the town that gave them it's keys.
Published: February 21, 2007 at 9:17 PMI'm glad Disney is finally doing something with the 20,000 Leagues Lagoon! I've been out of touch with 'stuff' for a while ... But, is WDW planning a similar venue?
As for Church Street ... I live in Austin and we have 6th Street; I've been to Memphis' Beal Street and New Orleans' Bourbon Street. Is there really a need for something like this in Orlando??
Published: February 22, 2007 at 9:53 AMJust to respond to WDW/Seas... it's not going to happen here. At least not in the same location.. They put a Winnie the Pooh Playground there. Besides, they have added plenty of other Nemo attractions recently (show at DAK, ride at EPCOT) I feel like I'm missing something..
Published: February 22, 2007 at 4:59 PMTrust me it's better to be on the "East Coast" definately. Church Street Station is so old school. It's been dead for a long time and it's really not missed by most. There are so many better and fun places here in Orlando to go. So you can have your West Coast....I will be staying on the East Coast and enjoying every moment of it.
Published: February 25, 2007 at 6:24 AMThis is easily the most pointless post I've ever seen on the front page of this site, February or not. Were you that desperate to put up a new headline? Two new attractions at Disneyland (one of which isn't even exclusive to DL) hardly make up for NOT being the theme park capital of the world (ie Central Florida)... and what in the world does Church Street Station have to do with theme parks? That place has been dead for YEARS anyway, unless you count Club Paris, which has survived even after being ditched by it's namesake.
