Bob held a Town Hall with Disney employees that was broadcast to the entire company where he answered a lot of questions. Among these were the parks reservation system, which Iger said he had not used and would have to ask Josh D'Amaro about. Overall, the tone was refreshing compared to that of Bob Chapek. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ If you have been to the parks recently, you may have noticed fewer characters around the parks. Most folks might not notice, since character meet and greets aren't as scheduled as entertainment, but character dining guests do notice. On Sunday morning, no characters were at Goofy's Kitchen for the character breakfast. No word on what is causing the shortages, but we will keep you posted if we hear anything. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ The Candlelight Processional is just around the corner, so the setup has begun! This year the annual event is on December 3rd and 4th. Some of the elements are already up in the park, with construction walls setup at the Main Street Train Station. Still no word on who the guest speaker will be. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ Over in ToonTown, a lot of the plants have been installed, but there is still paving yet to be done before the land opens in March of 2023. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ An interesting thing we noticed looking at the refurbishment calendar was that a number of them are open-ended. The one that we are most excited about is Indy, which is going down again starting January 9th. We hope this is the big one that is sorely needed. The Disney Gallery and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln are also going under on January 9th, most likely in preparation for Disney100 to launch later in January. Also of note is the first refurbishment for Web Slingers. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ One of our favorite spots along the Rivers of America has wrapped up work and should be open to guests any minute now! The dock across from Big Thunder Mountain has been behind walls and having the deck replaced for months now. As recently as this weekend, chairs and tables have been setup and the walls have come down, but the area was still blocked off to guests. We are excited to enjoy this area again on our next trip. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ Weeklyteers who love a good Monte Cristo should head to the Magic Key Terrace soon! A new Monte Cristo corndog is now available for $20 and includes two corndogs, a side of garlic waffle fries, covered in cheese and strawberry Thai chili jam, wine port jelly caviar, and berry compote. Most of the inside of the corndog is cheese, and the thai chili isn't spicy at all. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/11/27/review-we-tried-disneys-exclusive-monte-cristo-corn-dog-should-you/ A reservation isn't required for some of the holiday activities around the resort. Downtown Disney has a large selection of treats, crafts, and unique shopping items. – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2022/11/feel-the-holiday-magic-in-downtown-disney-district-at-disneyland-resort/ Discussion Topic: Producer James Fun

Many people know some thing about Disneyland Paris. They certainly know that it's somewhere around Paris. They may know about the amazing catapult-style launch of Space Mountain, or the Big Thunder Mountain on an island inside the Rivers of America or perhaps the dragon in the dungeon of Sleeping Beauty Castle. But today I'm presenting insider Baseball when it comes to Disneyland Paris, because there are some very unique aspects of the park that many people haven't quite considered. By the time we're finished, you may want to consider booking your Disneyland Paris trip sooner than later. It's that unique and that cool--and possibly more Disney than Disney Parks here in the United States! So join us for 5 things you may not know about Disneyland Paris.
Happy Halloween! We are lacing up our roombas to review Hocus Pocus 2 and share a coven full of witch-related Marvel news. Then things get spooky with our next Patreon inspired segment...

In the 127th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave cannot start the show and it's Quasi Producer Heather joining Dave, since Upon a Star Jenn is literally at a conference in Mexico as we record. First up, a little Disney'ing by wearing vintage shirts and new Disney PJ pants, plus Heather remembers to book her own room for a trip upcoming. Then, sorting through the news and rumors including a possible canceled pavilion (rumor) and a princess breakfast returning (fact), we also take a look at five still-closed attraction and experiences, and weigh in on whether they will return or not. And then, we harken back to D23 when Josh D'Amaro dared to dream and tell us, the rabid Disney fans, that maybe someday maybe, Disney will take a look at what "lies beyond Big Thunder Mountain" -- and then he mentioned the magic word... "Villains". So tonight, we build our own Villains Land in Magic Kingdom with each giving their ideas of the Disney Big Bads who could lead their own rides, shows, restaurants and more. From Henchmen dancing to a speeding carpet through the streets of Agrabah to a Fantasia ride... a scary Fantasia ride. Hope you enjoy our suggestions for how we'd build this land, and we'd love to hear your own!
D23 got our imagination going with the tease of what's behind Big Thunder Mountain so Jeremy and Brooklyn use their imaginations and come up with some ideas of what they would like to see back there and what they think of Disney's ideas as well
Ce mois-ci on parle du film basé sur Big Thunder Mountain, du jeu Disney Dreamlight Valley, du programme de Noël à Disneyland Paris, des premières informations sur les célébrations du 100e anniversaire de Disney et du programme de fidélité "Prime" sur Disney+

Everything New for Disney Parks and Resorts from D23 Expo 2022 So What's Next for Disney Parks?You won't believe what's coming behind Big Thunder Mountain at Walt Disney World This is Disney's Blue Sky sneak peak of what's coming down the road for Disney Parks. This portion of the D23 Expo had the biggest cheer of anything announced in 2022.First though, Josh D'Amaro announced what's happening with Dinoland at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. It has been languishing and looks forgotten so the announcement of a big transformation coming was welcome. Zootopia and Moana will share the space currently occupied by Dinoland. But the biggest news of all... Disney Villains are Finally Getting a Place to Call their OwnMagic Kingdom will feature new frontiers and it's all hiding on the other side of BTM. The little town of Santa Cecilia will come to life as Coco gets a Magic Kingdom presence. And if you do want to talk about Bruno, you're in luck because you may be able to walk right into the Madrigal's casita. But all is not fun and flowers in this new land...as what if the Disney villains took up residence there as well...beyond Big Thunder Mountain.This was presented as conceptual and would likely be 10 years down the road, but Disney would not share it in this way if it weren't going to happen. Big news for Walt Disney World and Magic Kingdom. -- There's More Coming to Walt Disney WorldA new nighttime show for EPCOT will debut in late 2023 to kick-off the 100th Anniversary of the Walt Disney Company. Moana's Journey of Water and the rest of the World Celebration area at EPCOT will open in late 2023. So we'll have to bear with those construction walls for another year it seems.Figment is returning in a brand new form for a meet and greet at EPCOT. That will be in place by the end of 2023. In Magic Kingdom, the perennial favorite Hatbox Ghost will materialize once again in the Haunted Mansion. And we now know that Tron Lightcycle Run at Magic Kingdom will debut in Spring 2023. We were hoping it would be sooner, but apparently they are working on finishing touches right now. No specific date, just "spring." Finally, in 2023, a new version of Happily Ever After will return as part of a new Magic Kingdom nighttime show. This received a good amount of applause. What's New and Coming to Disneyland Resort The DVC Villas at Disneyland Hotel will be called the Villas at Disneyland Hotel. How creative. On October 16, 2023 Disney 100 kicks-off and it promises to be the biggest celebration ever for Disney. Under the theme of a Boundless Future the following announcements were made: The Mandalorian and Grogu (aka Baby Yoda) will be onsite starting in Mid November 2022 at Disneyland Galaxy's Edge Over at the Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure Park, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, noted "we're just getting started." A new giant Hulk will be at Avengers Campus in California "next week." Plus, they're bringing the Multiverse to Avengers Campus. Disney is expanding the campus to include a new attraction. In the new attraction you will battle alongside all the Avengers against all the foes from anywhere. You will fight King Thanos. This is a new Thanos -- a Thanos who won. And the Avengers are not too happy about that and you have to help them. More news to come. Also new to Disney California Adventure, they are reimagining Pacific Wharf into San Fransokyo from Big Hero Six. You'll be able to meet Baymax there. Finally, they are reimagining Paradise Pier Hotel, as it will become Pixar Place Hotel. It will feature a Finding Nemo splash pad and more characters. All in all, Disney promises that the hotel will feel completely new. Over at Downtown Disney more than a dozen new or reimagined locations are in the works. More announcements coming over the next year. But the big news locally is a that SoCal favorite bakery Porto's is coming to Downtown Disney. RunDisney at Disneyland is coming back in 2024. More details coming soon. It's been awhile for Run Disney as the last one took place in 2017. Mickey's ToonTown Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway are coming along. It was good to hear that it will be a slightly different version of Runaway Railway than the WDW edition, to fit into the Disneyland ToonTown story. It's all opening in 2023. Tiana's Bayou Adventure will open in late 2024 in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The story for the ride is that it picks up where the film (Princess and the Frog) left off. In the new story, Princess Tiana is an entrepreneur and community leader in the year 1927. She is hosting a party for the community and we need to help Tiana to find a special ingredient that she's missing. Disney promises that the latest tech is being implemented to really enhance the outside of the whole area at night. Mist will be used like a painter's canvas. "True bayou magic." The attraction is to be a love letter to New Orleans. Guests should feel the story is authentic to the city. Another great piece of news is that the original cast will be lending their voices to the new attraction. --What's new at Disney Cruise Line The sixth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet is all about adventure...celebrating Walt's love for exploration. The new Disney Cruise ship is called Disney Treasure. The Disney Wonder is heading to Australia and New Zealand late 2023. The island of Eleuthera and Lighthouse Point will be the new Bahamas port for Disney Cruise. 90% of the power will come from solar.What's Coming to Disney Parks Around the Globe Zootopia is opening at Shanghai Disneyland. World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland will open in the second half of 2023, featuring a Wandering Oaken sleigh coaster. Disneyland Paris' Frozen Arendelle land is coming along and Disneyland Hotel is being fully reimagined -- opening in 2024 At Tokyo Disneyland, Disney Fantasy Spring will feature Peter Pan, Tangled and Frozen. Plus a totally reimagined Space Mountain will open by 2027 at Tokyo Disney. Pixar We Belong Together will be debuting at Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris next year. The DLP 30th Anniversary celebrations will be continuing until September 2023.--Thank You for Listening to the Disney Travel PodcastThank you very much for listening to this episode, Amelia and I hope that you enjoyed it.

On this week's show, Disneyland veterans, David and Ronn dive into several sizzling Disney topics. Exploring The NEW (Temporary?) Magic Key Pass Program! Is it better or worse? What did they change? Why did they change it? Is this the MKP program that is here to stay? Just kidding, when are they changing it again? “We read demand. We have no plans right now in terms of what we're going to do, but we operate with a surgical knife here, It's all up to the consumer. If consumer demand keeps up, we'll act accordingly. If we see a softening, which we don't think we're going to see, then we can act accordingly as well.” - CEO Bob ChapekDoes the question now become how drastic are the changes still to come? Something unprecedented? Will the future state of annual passes be unrecognizable - or even exist at all?Do we think Disney will ever put Batuu in a future Star Wars film? Do we think a Tarzan's Treehouse announcement could be big enough for D23? DCA lacks a great dark ride that cycles thru many guests like Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion. What dark ride would we like to see at DCA?Plus, we plunge into the Disney zeitgeist and explore this week's most popular and headline-grabbing Disney chatter including "attendance mix", D23 Legends announced, Disney+ Day, the Big Thunder Mountain movie announcement, Batuu Bounty Hunters, and Disneyland Magic Bands. All this and the big reveal of our Top 5 Favorite Quotes from a Ride, and more!
Disney fans rejoice! After a long wait, we now have news about the renewal process for Disneyland Resort Magic Keys. Plus, the 2022 Disney Legend recipients have been announced, there have been significant food cost increases in the parks, another sitcom is heading to Disneyland, another classic attraction is being turned into a movie, and a Star Wars film is returning to the big screen.

On the August 17, 2022 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editorial director Peter Sciretta will discuss the latest film and tv news, including a Big Thunder Mountain movie, another Saw film, and in the mail bag we'll answer a question about how AMC A-List contributes to the Box Office. In The News: Peter (og Valerie): Hawkeye Directors Are Making A Big Thunder Mountain Movie For Disney Rafael: Next Saw Film Set For Halloween 2023 Release In The Mailbag: Matt Y writes in “I have always wondered about this topic and thought that maybe Ryan could illuminate further. How do monthly subscription programs like AMC Stubs A-list count toward box office numbers? My understanding of MoviePass was that the company was actually buying the ticket at full price, but they were not affiliated with any specific theater chain. When I use my AMC membership to see a movie at AMC, are they paying themselves for each ticket? Is someone seeing Spiderman: No Way Home three times a week under their membership counted the same as someone paying "out of pocket" and seeing it just as often? Is this another area of nebulous "Hollywood accounting"? I would just be curious to hear you and Ryan discuss this sometime.

On this week's show, Disneyland veterans, David and Ronn dive into several sizzling Disney topics. Exploring the D23 Expo Panel Announcements and Details. Did they tell us too much?

Soundscapes: Disneyland Grand Tour Part 1 ----- Want More Here With The Magic? Visit The Website: https://herewiththemagic.com Watch Here: https://www.youtube.com/HereWithTheMagic Connect on Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/herewiththemagic Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/herewiththemagic/ -- To all who come to this happy place, welcome. On a sweltering day in mid-July, nearly seventy years ago, Walt Disney spoke those timeless words in his dedication of his very first namesake park: Disneyland. He invited us to step into a world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy. Today, a fairytale castle gleams in the distance, our gateway to all the Magic that is held in Walt's time-honored speech. Adventure and excitement await in the moments ahead, of that we can be sure. Whether we embark on a journey down the Rivers of America or swing down to New Orleans Square for some jazzy revelry and sweet beignets, these will be moments to treasure. To imagine walking right down the middle of Main Street USA with Walt. To encounter with him, those quiet moments of pause, where we discover joy that is priceless and peaceful and perfect. They are the alcoves and hideaways, the treehouses and terraces…the places where we stop just to take in the view, to truly relish the sensation of being in the Happiest Place on Earth. It's a leisurely stroll through the tumbleweed town of Frontierland, or pausing to listen to the babbling brooks of Critter Country. The Magic continues to thrive in all of these places. So I invite you to join me for the first part of a grand circle tour of Disneyland, as we experience it in a way that will speak to your nostalgic spirit and childlike heart. Along the way, I hope you'll celebrate every joyful moment you encounter, savor every quiet space, and be Here With the Magic of the place that started it all.
On this week's show, Disneyland veterans, David and Ronn dive into several sizzling Disney topics. Is a Reservation Waitlist Coming to Disneyland? Of course, Disney could implement a reservation waitlist but would they? Should they? Would that make the reservation system a better process – or a worse one? The Disneyland Resort is a different animal than the other Disney Parks in that it's a locals Country Club of sorts. Does that fact make a potential reservation waitlist more or less likely? So many questions that are all answered by one simple question: Will a reservation waitlist generate more revenue for The Walt Disney Company or not?What is our favorite Easter egg or nod to a former attraction? If we could spend one night in the Parks where would we sleep? What ride would we like to be on when a breakdown happens?Plus, we plunge into the Disney zeitgeist and explore the most popular and headline-grabbing Disney chatter including CEO Bob Chapek's 3-year extension, Tiana's Bayou Adventure coming in 2024, the return of the Lagoon, Lightyear makeover of Space Mountain, the waffling timeline in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

On this week's show, Disneyland veterans, David and Ronn dive into several sizzling Disney topics. Exploring The Glaring Disneyland Resort Entertainment Void. While a few huge nighttime spectaculars are set to return in just over a week like The Main Street Electrical Parade, the Disneyland Forever Fireworks Show, and World of Color with Fantasmic! set to come about a month later several other essential Disneyland entertainment staples remain non-existent. A Disneyland daytime parade anyone? Speaking of daytime, the sweltering summer heat is coming with merely a fraction of the large indoor air-conditioned entertainment offering providing that much-needed relief from the heat to relax, recover and remain elated to be at the Disneyland Resort. If we had to choose one, what Pixar or Disney Animated film would we select for a Live-Action remake? If you could take any item from Disneyland home with you, what would it be?

What in the "refurbishment" is going on - New Orleans Square, Pirates of the Caribbean, Nemo's Submarine Voyage, Tarzan's Treehouse AND Toontown? Aye, aye-aye. 75% of Disneyland is still pretty wonderful but more is better! So as magical as the Disneyland Resort is today... it's only going to get better from here!

On this week's show, Disneyland pros, David and Ronn dive into several sizzling Disney topics. Exploring the Science and Future of the Reservation System. Maximizing profits is the goal for every business. Disney happens to already be masterful at separating people from their money - add the repeated mentions of their "yield management" strategy and "demand-based pricing" from Bob Chapek and Disney brass - and it appears clear the pricing strategy for both admissions and even attractions may be changing. But to what end? Is the current reservation system performing at an optimal level resulting in Disney maximizing profits? Almost certainly not considering its infancy and recent times. If that is the case, changes are to be expected and it's very reasonable to even expect seemingly radical changes. Could reservations and/or the Magic Key Pass be terminated? Could we see Ticket allotments? Ala carte attraction fees? Variable pricing ala airline seats? Is the 1:00 pm Park Hopper rule here to stay? What celebrities have we run into at the Parks? Where would we love to see a permanent live stream camera at Disneyland?Plus, we remember, celebrate, and honor The Love Bug, The Many Adventure of Winnie the Pooh, Splash, The Old Mill, the Multiplane Camera, The Swiss Family Treehouse, and Man in Space in this week in Disney history.

Soundscapes: A Rainy Day on Tom Sawyer Island Follow along with the show notes below! Want More Here With The Magic? Visit The Website: https://herewiththemagic.com Watch Here: https://www.youtube.com/HereWithTheMagic Watch the companion video to this podcast Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3BUvKpcjQU Connect on Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/herewiththemagic Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/herewiththemagic/ ----- (2:48) Along the serene Rivers of America and nestled on the grassy banks, there is an island hidden in the heart of the marshy wilderness. Most who explore the tumbleweed town of Frontierland on the opposite shore spare little more than a glance for the landscape beyond, but we who have known its Magic head for the docks at the edge of Thunder Mesa, eager to board a raft headed for the outskirts of Tom Sawyer Island. There is something spiritual, a palpable shift that happens when we board our river raft and leave the mainland of the Magic Kingdom behind. It is a sense of intentional departure…a quest! We are embarking on an adventure into the sovereign state of childhood daydreams, where boundless imaginations and inexhaustible summer afternoons meant uninhibited exploration. It is a place where we are invited to remember what it felt like to wonder so expansively, to wander so freely and fearlessly, creating worlds far more rich with possibility than the ones we inhabited. Arriving at Huck's Landing, we find ourselves standing on an unassuming wooden dock overlooking the sprawling Kingdom beyond. Suddenly, in a place where every detail has not been contrived for us, our imaginations whir into action, imposing context and stirring memories to fill in these very deliberate gaps. (6:36) Winding pathways and lush, overgrown trees entice our curiosity, and even the steady rainfall could not squelch that delight so reminiscent of youth. Jump in a puddle - we dare you! It's good for the soul. Around Here, a rainy day only adds to the mystery and excitement, and we have a feeling we're about to encounter plenty of both. (8:30) Named for the man who penned the tales of Tom Sawyer and his friends, Fort Langhorne pays tribute to Samuel Longhorn Clemens, more popularly recognized by his pen name: Mark Twain. A fortress accessible only by suspension bridge, Fort Langhorne holds surprises around every corner. (15:06) Inside the fort, we spot a horse barn and stables, complete with groomers keeping the animals snug and dry inside. But we who are fearless in the face of danger (and puddles) climb to the top of Fort Langhorne, scouting our trail from the lookout points and wending our way back down through the secret escape tunnel. On our way back and halfway across Superstition Bridge, we are met by breathtaking views of the Magic Kingdom. Here, we catch a glimpse of how far we've traveled, castaways onto the island of eternal youth. (29:00) Back on the main island, it seems that Tom and Huck have anticipated the arrival of kindred explorers, and have put up some very helpful sign posts to direct us this way and that. “Barrel Bridge,” “Tom and Hucks Way,” and “The Other Way” leave a lot to the imagination, but as we're guests on the imaginative playground of those two characters, it seems only fitting that we follow their sound advice. Plus, finding a quiet moment to take in a beautiful view is always our inclination, so off to the Barrel Bridge we go! (30:55) A waterside pathway along the Rivers of America, a vista of still more captivating views of Liberty Square and Frontierland stretches out before us. Jutting out into the water and creating the illusion that we are held between one world and the next, this is perhaps the most serene spot in the entire park. We are neither a part of the scene nor disconnected from it. We are simply Here, held in a suspension of disbelief, a suspension of time and reality that engulfs us so entirely in the moment, we might remain for hours or even days without losing a single second. (31:09) As if more tranquility could not be contained in a single space, we stumble upon a waterfall trickling down a hillside, a sort of creek flowing in cadence with the rain, an entrancing sort of elemental rhythm to slow our pace and give us pause. We hear the distant echo of the Liberty Belle setting sail for its sightseeing voyage, and not for the first time today, the image of a life spent blissfully in this riverbank paradise flickers across our minds like a sepia-toned memory of a reality that never was. (34:00) It is this moment, more than our arrival or any we have experienced so far, which sets the tone for the rest of our journey. It is through this lens, a sort of extended release joy, through which we watch the delighted explorers wending their way through Scavenger's Fort, their wonder enlivened with every new discovery and winding wooden trail. It is Here, in this mindfulness, that we watch an Ibis rest serenely at the edge of the creek, not wanting or worrying for anything at all. Who'd have thought that Here, on this playground inspired by Mark Twain's exuberant imagination, we would find incontrovertible peace. Magic, some might call it. (38:34) And speaking of Magic, perhaps the most spellbinding space we'll encounter on this island is not for the faint of heart (nor the helplessly claustrophobic). Old Scratch's Mystery Mine is a feat of engineering, optical illusion, and a place only an imagination sustained by youth could conjure. At the dark and ominous entrance to the cavern, Tom Sawyer himself has left us a note, advising that we “keep a sharp eye out” and “dont stop for nuthin” as we call upon our courage and wander inside. Along narrow pathways we meander, our curiosity quelling any apprehension. (39:15) Up ahead, we spy a waterfall which seems to have spared no thought for such concepts us “gravity,” streaming ever upward and catching the light of dozens of glittering jewels waiting to be mined. A dazzling treasure, to be sure, but not the most priceless one we've found on our excursion to Tom Sawyer Island. Our minds retreating to what other quiet moments of joy our journey might have in store, we find reprieve from the cave's confinement in the wide open space outside and the refreshing rainfall still falling all around us. (41:19) Potter's Mill stands sentinel on the edge of the Rivers of America, charming and quaint and beautifully preserved in time. Home to several songbirds who undoubtedly have found a haven in the rafters from the “some no good” who scared them away from the grist mill nearby. (44:40) All at once retrieved from our reverie by the unmistakable clickety-clack of a runaway mine train and the even more recognizable screams of mingled fear and delight, we give way once more to that unguarded inquisition, and set off in pursuit of one last, daring adventure. (46:57) Spelunking through the Cave of the mysteriously elusive “Injun Joe,” we find a hideout sporting a fascination of fossils embedded into stone walls, which jut out and reach toward the ceiling in the oddest formations that almost resemble...faces? An eerie whistle of wind creeps through the cavern, and a bridge over a bottomless pit seems the only way through, the most bracing test of our courage thus far. Though, some satirical jungle cruise skippers might speculate that the return to civilization is far more foreboding. (49:47) And so we pluck up our courage for that great feat, and head back out into the drizzle, which seems to have lightened during our cave exploration. Harper's Mill seems to thrive on a more pervasive deluge, its water wheel churning around and around the grist mill in ceaseless earnest, collecting what it can from the low, gray clouds. A quintessential scene of the old, deep south, this scene calls to mind sprawling front porches and slow harmonica serenades. We can picture ourselves rocking away until the stars scatter the countryside sky, sipping sweet tea and listening to the childhood tales of generations. And as the Liberty Belle churns along the Rivers of America, sightseers enamored by the quaint little island they'll only ever know from afar, we wear the secret of this place like a smile. Suddenly, the idea of leaving this place is not met with fretful hesitation. It's not truly goodbye, after all, but “see you real soon.” (51:00) Like a farewell to a lifelong friend, not unlike what Tom and Huck might exchange at summer's end, we know we'll meet again someday. When that day comes, we'll pick up right where we left off (and maybe, finally, finish whitewashing that fence). For now, we've got a blissful afternoon full of memories to see us through, a wonderland of wandering to embark upon in our imagination. In the story that unfolds in every orifice of Tom Sawyer Island, we have found a place held for us in each chapter. For those of us who seek Magic in the mundane…this is our escape to Neverland, our quiet moment of suspension and joy.
