Dear all in the near future there are going to be a few subtle changes to the site, and perhaps one or two not so subtle.
Over the last year or so the community has grown in numbers and in presence on the internet. Also during this time I have learned a lot about you, the users and about the needs of the community - now it is time to take those lessons and built upon them.
Roy E Disney, a long-time executive of the Walt Disney Company - which his uncle founded - has died aged 79. He had been ill with stomach cancer for the past year.
I had the honour and privilege of meeting Roy on several occasions, my memories are of a gentle and unassuming gentleman.
Roy, who played a powerful role at the company for more than 50 years, led a successful shareholder revolt against chief executive Michael Eisner.

Disneyland has had a long and proud tradition assisting it's disabled Guests to get the most out of it's attractions whether it is through wheel chair hire, wide access queue lines or with its Special Access Passes*. But research from the UK suggests these accommodations may be doing more harm than good for one group of Guests.
"Enchantment can be dangerous work. A series of employee fatalities this summer at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., has exposed a hard truth: the recipe for making dreams come true at the Magic Kingdom includes not only pixie dust and princesses but the hard work of very mortal human beings acting in a risky world where sometimes things go badly awry."
