DENVER, CO -- Elitch Gardens (just "Elitch's" to the locals) was a beloved theme park in west Denver with roots going back to the late 1800's. Eventually, in 1995, the name (but not the "beloved") moved downtown, becoming a generic cookie-cutter amusement park monstrosity with great views of the mountains.

New PhotoPass system isn’t automated; just hides ugly Cast Members

It solves the problem of "guests not smiling, and children crying." WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL -- Disney fandom has been in an uproar in the past week over a new "automated" PhotoPass system at the Walt Disney World Resort and Spa. Photos have surfaced showing holes for the new system in character greeting room walls. But Uncle Walt's Insider readers can rest easy, because we (as always) have the true story: PhotoPass photographers aren't being replaced, just hidden. Especially the uglier ones. Sparing feelings "It's ... Read more
