    Yea, that's true...I'd have to spend even more money to convince my parents to expand the house, and then we'd actually pay for the expansion...doesn't work out well at all!

    Okay, It's not an attraction, but I really do miss the "Eggroll wagon" that used to sit across from the steps of the Jungle Cruise. Does anyone know if they moved that thing. You could get a traditional eggroll, or a pizza eggroll and I believe there was yet one more eggroll. I just remember it being the snack that hit the spot and would carry me through the day.

    Well I don't think they have as many varieties but I took a gander at the menu of this new reaturaunt (courtersy of the ears to ears yahoo group) and they do have egg rolls!

    I agree about the Magic store but I also miss the Penny Arcade. That was always my favorite. I remember saving up pennies when I was little and spending them all on those old fashioned crank-turning games. But I also miss 20000 Leagues and World of Motion (Epcot). Even though the new rides are pretty cool, I get nostalgic for the classics, especially in Epcot. I also heard a rumor they are going to change Spaceship Earth!! Say it isn't so!!!! Please!!!!!

    I still miss the old "pinnacle" of Spaceship Earth, right before the decent back to earth, when you look down on the city. Would love to see pics/vid of that!

    Anyhow, the REAL reason for my post...

    If you didn't know, they still have a few of those penny-arcade machines on the top floor of the train station at the entrance. No one seems to pay any attention to them, buy they still do work!

    I'm not certain if lou has posted it yet but there should be an audio track from the sebring piano that is at the train station in the downloads section, if you do listen to it, and you know the name of the turne please pass that name along to us (lou or myself) so we can add that to the file name.

    I agree Melrose, the penny arcade was awesome! They still have some in shops along main street as well. After cranking them as a child, I'd go to school the next day and make stick figure flip books out of yellow stickup pads! I should've been an imagineer jeez...

    I miss the canoes! I remember the three sizes of paddles they offered and thinking, "Paddle? You want me to paddle?! ****ers on a track, I ain't paddle'n!" lol... till I saw a CM in a coon hat, soaked to the bone! Hey repeated over and over to people as he laughed, "A canoe tipped" and made his way out of sight so, I guess I was wrong eh?

    I miss the old school Innoventions! Remember that blue robot you played games with on a phone?! What was his name.... Smart1 I think. And the neat swedish styled clock-work murial in there.

    I actually embraced Dreamflight over If You Had Wings as a child! I don't know, something about animated plywood cutouts I found neat.

    And the haunted hut in front of HM! You could buy anything from there! From life-sized human skulls to candy! They were hardcore in the 80's I swear!

    Tampa,

    First - a belated HELLO! and welcome!

    Second, I also miss the great cart outside the HM. I bought some cool (or so I thought at the time.. i was a kid, of course), stuff there. Now, I have to settle for a couple of toys and shirt (which I own already), and pass by all the Nightmare Before Christmas stuff (Ugh)

    Ya! I'm not into skulls or anything, but it was neat to see Disney not give a flying flopping dumbo ear about it, cause the ride made it sell.

    Anyone have some Canoe stories? I'm suprised no one talks about em..

    And Hi right back to ya Lou! I'm love'n the site dude!

    Speaking of lost but not forgotten... has anybody been in the shop at Animation in Disney-MGM recently? I was there yesterday and about had a heart attack...they're selling a large, and I do mean large, Mr. Toad figurine!!!! I wanted it bad...but I live in an RV, so it would have been asking for trouble. The CM at the shop said they haven't been selling out, but they have been selling pretty well. And this after Disney said one reason for closing Toad is that they would never be able to sell Toad merchandise!

    Check it out next time you go...it's a really nice piece.

    Pinocchio's says goodbye to burgers

    As of this coming Sunday, Pinnochio Village Haus at the Magic Kingdom is no longer offering hamburgers and cheeseburgers on its menu.

    The kitchen of this Fantasyland eatery is being refurbished to allow preparation of pizza and other Italian food options, marking the return of pizza to the Magic Kingdom. (The popular dish had disappeared from the park with the conversion of the Plaza Pavilion to the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station.)

    The location remains open, serving a limited menu, until it opens its new kitchen on May 22.

    You know....I really loved the cheeseburgers at Pinocchio. Pizza is cool and everything, but those cheeseburgers really were good.

    I figured this is a fair re-balancing act...look at the menu from Pecos Bills...(copied from allearsnet.com)


    1/2-Pound Bacon Double Cheeseburger - served with your choice of french fries or carrots $7.29
    1/4-Pound Cheeseburger - served with your choice of fries or carrots $5.79; add bacon $.79


    also Cosmic Rays...


    Meteor Meal - 1/2 pound Bacon Double Cheeseburger served with your choice of French fries or carrots $7.29

    Cosmic Creations - 1/4 pound Cheeseburger served with your choice of French fries or carrots $5.79; add bacon $0.79

    note that these two restaurants not only list identical prices and products but they also match the Hamburgers that are listed on the Pinocchio Village Haus menu...
    Geppetto's 1/2 pound Bacon Double Cheeseburger (w/carrots or fries) $7.29
    Gideon's 1/4 Pound Cheeseburger (w/carrots or fries) $5.79; add bacon $0.79


    Somehow this does not stike me as such an onerous loss, if you really want to eat a cheseburger there just bring one from one of these other restaurants...t said it would be really nice if there were more counter service options available at each of the reaturants, Cosmic Rays isn't too bad but some of these place really do have small menus. I'm guessing it would take some major backstage renovations at the restaurants to make this possible, perhaps down the raod they will do this since Americas tastes have changed alot since these kitchens were first set up in 1971. In general I think they are probably doing the best they can to provide a wider variety of choices with the limited kitchen spaces they currently have, I dont think this is bad, but, I do belive they should be encouraged to make better changes down the road , for instance having Pizza, hamburgers, chicken, noodles, empanadas and taco salads available at all three of these locations (empanadas and taco salads are currently only available at El Pirata y el Perico).
