OK, you'll notice that not much has happened with the site recently. The reason for this is
two-fold. First, I've just moved into my first house, and that's eaten up all my spare time.
Second, Tripod has changed their free web hosting from 50mags to 20megs. This has forced me to
take out some existing pages to get down to 20megs!!! I've been doing this site for fun, and for
the love of my hobby and yours, but cannot afford to pay for web hosting. For now, the site may
sit dormant for a while until I figure out what I'm going to do next. I'm always saving images
of items not on the site, and hope to continue with the site soon! Thanks to all of you who have
contributed in the past, it's really been appreciated!! Any of you can feel free to contact me about
any questions you have about the site, or our hobby. I'd love to hear from you! Thanks, Matt

Well, I've really re-worked the Disneyland Guide Book pages! Special
thanks to Mike Goldberg, Bill Silvester, Shannon Sudduth, and Dave Smith of the Disney Archives
for their hard work in cataloging the 1965-94 guides and letting me put the information on the
site! I've also re-worked the Other Disneyland Items pages, moving a lot of items around and
adding some information. That'll be it for a while, as I'm moving this week! Hopefully I'll have
another update by the end of the week!!

April 8, 2002
I'm slowly going to work through a back log of images I've got saved up. Also, I'm looking for a
new host, as Tripod has cut their free hosting from 50megs to 25megs. We're at 21 now. Also, some
text to add to the Disneyland guides pages due to a great contribution! Stay tuned! Thanks to all who
have been contributing!

Well, that month certainly did pass quickly! Sorry about the length between updates, but
I've had a busy month! We've bought our first home and have slowly been getting ready for the
move. We take possession in April! Very exciting times. I've got a lot of images and info to
add to the site, and hope to get to it quickly! Hopefully the next update will be before March!

Welcome to the launch of the new site design! As you will see, it is
still a work in progress. Gone are the large images of the items. I was out of space in my
free tripod account. So, now the thumbnail images are a bit larger. Hopefully they won't take
too long to load. Please give me feedback on this. Over the next few weeks I will probably not
be adding too many new images. I'll be cleaning up the pages, adding links, and also adding a
lot more written information on each page. But, with Christmas coming, I can see time getting
tight. Hopefully I'll have time! Plus, I'll be at WDW from Dec. 6 to 15th!!! Can't wait! Anyway
enjoy the new design, and please send your comments!
