    Is Spectro actually still going on... Well, the reason I ask is because it's not mentioned in the Current park map...

    I figured that it's probably not in there cause it's going away soon or it is already gone... (that's why I went & saw it on this past Sat.)

    I think it probably is going away till summer...

    I checked with Guest Relations before I printed the article and I checked again just a few moments ago and the article times for SpectroMagic are correct according to Guest Relations. How much longer SpectroMagic will continue is anyones guess at this point

    Puddn7 - You're not the only person who's sorry to hear about Early Entry going away. Please do be sure to write Disney at wdw.guest.communications@disney.com to let them know. Or, you can write a "regular" letter and send it to one (or more) of the addresses here:

    <a href="http://www.wdwblues.com/write.disney.html" target="_blank">http://www.wdwblues.com/write.
    disney.html</a>

    They've received a LOT of complaints about this, and I think it's important for folks to let them know that Early Entry will be missed. I know it doesn't always feel like it, but Disney *does* listen to its guests. If they get enough complaints, it'll come back. If they don't get enough complaints, I think it may stay gone even once the economy picks back up.

Now I have plans for eating at another restaurant, but it at least would've been nice for Disney to contact those with reservations and let them know. If I hadn't about it on the Internet, I would've gotten to WDW and not even have known. On the telephone, the employee said they were trying and/or planning to contact people with reservations, but we never heard anything from them. On top of that, I was afraid to fly before the events of 9/11. For me to get on a plane in less than a week, will not be an easy thing. I find it dissapointing that even though I'm going ahead and going to WDW anyhow, that they're essentially hurting people like me who are still coming to their parks right now, in spite of everything going on.
