Front Page of The Temecula Edition of The Press Enterprise Business section today shows a picture of JP the ride in Osaka and Jumpin' Jellyfish at Disney Sea with the story.

I'll scan the pix if anyone wants to see them.

"Oh crap, I'm not riding Raptor anymore because there's one just like it in Japan. Cedar Point sucks now."

Feng Shui in Disneyworld? Now that's an idea i never thought i'd hear. =). It sounds fascinating though, and Disney is the master of "illusion," or making you feel like you're really in a Fantasy-type world (the music in the rocks at Adventureland still amaze me). Could anyone who's into Feng Shui give some examples of common principles? Thanks.
