  1. A Week at the NFFC National Convention

    It's been quite a week at the NFFC National Convention. I was originally scheduled to participate on the Podcasting Panel, that was cancelled to make room for Disney Legend Wally Boag. If I had to make room for anyone, Wally is the man. Besides, I got to interview him for the podcast.

    Air scoops were installed in the roof escape hatches of the air-conditioning-less cabins, to increase ventilation. Plus, ridership in the cabins is being capped at about two-thirds of intended capacity. Nonetheless, Red still must ...
  5. Kirk Design and Imagineering

    Some of their stuff includes Disneyland, WDW, and Disney Sea, as well as Epcot. Posted some higher res and easier to see stuff on my blog this morning. But the whole site is SO cool. They really are great at what they do. Check it out:
