  • What’s next at Disneyland???

  • Speaking of new experiences, can you tell us anything about the new Rapunzel tower in the Magic Kingdom? I was just there, and I saw a Rapunzel tower near Peter Pan’s Flight! It looked AWESOME!

  • Please don’t change the menu at the Main Street Bakery; just add new coffee and leave the food as it is! I love the current food, and I’d really miss it.

  • Can’t wait!Especially for Avatar and Starbucks! Will there still be ice cream served at Starbucks or will main street retire the best ice cream ever with the cute mickey ears for good? That is the one thing I will definitely miss.
