Somewhere, Dee Snider is smiling.

Dee Snyder is the one who made them change the name from Twister Sisters to Twisted Twins...

I can't imagine him doing anything more than cashing a check and lounging at the pool...after his racquetball match...

Jeff: Congrats on another excellent article. I loved the Disney circa 1955 video. What really stands out is the absence of the lush landscaping we now take for granted. The berm is basically bare and the park looks OK but not beautiful yet. This is a much better video than the opening day telecast.

Actually, you're wrong. Dee Snyder has gone on record - no pun intended - as saying he would have loved the coaster to be called "Twisted Sisters", but he doesn't own the rights to the name.

This looks really good, I may have to see it. Tom Hanks is always amazing.

The hazy background of the Shanghai Disneyland castle construction is not making me feel optimistic. What a disappointment. Not sure if the hazy appearance was from fog, pollution, smog, or any other combination.
