I used to get a daily email recap of the Disney Parks Blog but haven’t gotten one in a couple of weeks – has that stopped?

I was not really planning a trip to Disneyland next year, but now I am re-thinking my plans. We were at the 50th celebration, we have the golden mickey hats! So we HAVE to be there for the 60th Birthday of the Walt Disney.

I see that David has the same question as me. What happened to the daily emails? I used to get them every morning just after 7:00 and they suddenly went away with no notice. Will they resume?
