    Agreed, Nancy. I always take a Grand Circle Tour when we’re at the park — sometimes more than one. I hadn’t thought about the loss of the quiet areas before, but you raise an excellent point.

    Tom, I appreciate that you reminded us about the conductors at DLRR. I think it’s admirable that the resort has found a way to keep the conductors “on the clock” during the downtime. While rotating them to some other position would have the same effect, I can’t imagine they’d be challenged as a cashier. Also, these are specialists; it would be a shame to lose any of them during this interregnum.

    Michael: Roald Dahl, not Ronald. N.B.: “The BFG” stands for “Big Friendly Giant” and, in case anyone is wondering, has nothing to do with the guns featured in FPS such as “Doom” or “Quake.” :-)

    Hi Tom – Thanks for the review of the Courtyard Anaheim Theme Park Entrance Hotel. I’ve been working towards our second trip (first was 3 years ago). Your review and the awareness of the new hotel got me to book it today for October. Thanks to you and the rest of the team you have been instrumental in our planning for the last 2 years.
