A quick follow-up to my previous post bemoaning the lack of trees at the Magic Kingdom's central hub. Yesterday's MiceChat photo update depicts the very progression I'm talking about. (Search for the words "Walt Disney World" about 3/4ths down the page and you'll find it.) Note that even in the 1997 photo, it appears the larger trees are still there.
I hear ya' Spirit. Forget these trip count downs how about a good bye to Bush count down..
It was very bare in front of the castle without all the foliage. Although, much easier to see the stage show.
The gardens near where the swan boats used to be are so beautiful. My mother actually has a great book featuring the gardens of WDW.

<<Why ruin the boards by discussing the Bush travesty? Let's keep Disney fun and
not talk about the dumbest president we ever had.>>
Now, now ... what makes you think we're discussing Bush? I was simply taking a shot.
Besides, about 2.7 Americans out of 10 still support the man ... and, scary as this may be, a lot of them seem to be Disney fans. UGH!!!!

Never had them. But I'll bet they have a whole lot more substance and a lot less gas than Junior.
I'm suddenly getting hungry!

By the way I call my plants around my house shrubs. I wouldn't want to embarass them by calling them bushes.

Is it true that WDW is now the 5th largest logging corporation in North America?

What's that chainsawing I hear ... oh, must be more tree removal at the MK!
But no complaining ... why would you want shade at a theme park in FLORIDA?!

I just stumbled on this post, there was a thread on this on the podcast section of the fourms i posted in a ahwile back with links to lots of photos of the castle I had taken over the years to illustrate it, I also posted a similar post on a nother forum I frequent that allows the use of photos, here's a link to that.

I think I need to convert that forum post to a post in my blog (with a link back to you since you got me thinking about it again)

Indeed, one of my many gripes last time. Even just some smaller trees like the ones at DLP would be great. The hub just feels like a strip mall at WDW (much like Main Street does there too).

I think there's a differene between neater and stark naked. More compact trees would look nice.

Quite frankly, I think the trees took away from the beauty of the Castle. It looked like they were overgrown and I didn't like the way it blocked everything. It looks much neater and more presentable now.
