    "Breaking" news on Main Street

    A friend of mine reports he was on Main Street today when an overhead cable supporting Christmas decorations snapped and hit the pavement between himself and his daughter.

    No one was hurt and Disney maintenance people were on the scene within minutes.

    Anyone there today see this?

    Thats terrible but i am glad everyone is alright. I wish they would do away with them things hanging over main street. I never liked them. I really think Disney should invest some money into new Christmas decorations all across the Walt Disney World Resort. Some of them look way to dated.

    they do look dated... and considering that Main Street USA is on tv every christmas day you would think they would change it up each year to keep things new...

    While it might be nice to have something new, I'm sure they would receive just as many complaints for changing it.

    Yeah, I thought they were going to have call in the National Guard when they shut down Mr Toad's for the Pooh Bear. Even though my little ones at the time loved Pooh and had no idea who Toad was, it showed that any change can generate big emotions.

    Glad no one was hurt, first and foremost. I'm sure we've all been in similar situations with corroded support wires just giving way and landing within spitting distance...
