Welcome, Interstate Travelers

The Prologue and the Promise, Horizons

For some reason I have a feeling that we’re going to have a lot of new readers today. To you all I say, welcome! Come in, set a spell. Subscribe to our RSS feed so you never miss a moment of our delicious wacky Disney goodness.

If you’re looking for information and speculation about Disney’s NextGen project, you can find the original articles on the subject from last April here and here, and an important correction here. Note that we’ve been piecing the story together from small bits of info over the course of a year, and with Disney’s level of secrecy on this project no rumor should be taken as the “gospel truth”.

Those of you interested in the history of Disney parks might want to check out my Neverworlds series, including articles on Port Disney, Disney’s America, France’s Lava Lagoon, and of course EPCOT’s mythical Danish bathrooms.

And, of course, those interested in my rambling thoughts and philosophies on what Disney needs to do to restore its parks in Florida and beyond can read my ten wishes from 2009 (with #1 soon to be named).

Whatever you do, though, don’t miss these videos! If there’s any benefit from all this traffic, it’s that I can beg anyone from Disney that’s dropping in to do everything they can to restore EPCOT to its lost grandeur. The park was and can be great, guys. But that’s a story for another day.

For now, stick around, drop us a line, and enjoy!

    I’ve been reading since just before Christmas and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing me with hours of entertainment so far reading back through the archives.

    Keep up the good work :)

    I’m excited about your snazzy new look and all your new traffic, too. In fact, here’s a message to them from me: “Dear new traffic, Progress City USA is one of the most in-depth and well-researched Disney blogs around. And Michael’s funny. He’s so funny you’ll wish he was writing for your blog. But don’t get jealous. Just keep reading, because it’s interesting. In addition to the being funny.”

  • Aww gee whiz guys, now I’ve gonna have to take it up a notch to live up to the hype for the newbies :)

    Thanks for the kind words, of course. I will accept effusive praise and quotable blurbs at any time. Perhaps I’ll rig up a fake movie poster to use all these quotes on.

    Rob: Welcome! Glad to have you here. Pull up a chair.

    And if anyone wishes I was writing for them, I’ll turn mercenary at any time if the price is right :) Hmm, how to be able to do this for a living instead of having to sit in an office all day… And if all you guys at Disney are intrigued, I *can* be co-opted entirely should you choose to subvert me to your will. Think how cheaply you can buy me off now before all this fame goes to my head…
