If nothing else at least it makes some of the in-park stuff like Circle Of Life seem less preachy and hypocritical.

I noticed when I was down there in August that they were converting the trim lights in It's A Small World's queue to LED's. We went back 3 times that week, and each time more of it had been done.


I wonder if this will get the buzz about expanded monorail track going again? I know these babies use energy too, but Disney certainly has alot of busses that could be taken off the roads.
