    We love Innoventions, and are thrilled it has a "new" exhibit!

    The beads do sound neat ... we'll have to check it out next trip.

    Interesting about the Angelica meet. It's funny, I never saw her again after we saw her in early summer before the movie came out. I hope Pirate Goofy comes back to this location.

    Sad to see Magic Masters going. We always stop in there while in DTD to watch them demonstrate some of their stuff. I've bought a few things from there as well. I can't see the silver shop lasting very long but who knows. It almost seems as if the West Side is turning into a more upscale shopping area.

    My husband was totally distraught when I told him Magic Masters is closing. Very depressing...I don't know what he'll find to entertain himself while I shop.
