That was, in a sad way, the crowning glory of the Pressler/Harris legacy at Disneyland, which can still be felt to this day. It's sad that so many accidents/deaths have occured in the last 10 years, in part thanks to their "run it until it breaks" philosophy of maintaining things at the park. Thankfully Disneyland as a whole is making HUGE leaps and bounds all around thanks to the new managment in the last 2 years. It will be better than ever soon enough.

Sadly, as things at DL are getting better then they have been in an extremely long time, WDW is taking a HUGE plunge down in terms of quality and upkeep.*** This post was edited by Peabody 12/2/2005 8:54:58 PM ***
