The face lift is very nice; it is a good addition for California.
One thing you need to remember, DLR and WDW are 2 very different parks. WDW relies on tourists while DLR relies on the local community more. The face lifts that DLR gets during the holidays really pulls people in. The weekends right now are every bit as crowded as it is during the summer.
If you want to see the 2004 version of HMH you can visit:
Go to SITE VIDEO/MULTIMEDIA
Go to my folder RU42
Look through and you will find my 2004 version of HMH. My 2005 version will appear on the VF site sometime in the next 2 weeks; but there have not been a lot of changes between 04 and 05.
Side note - if you are not registered with VF you will need to register before downloading videos.
