Let’s take a stroll down a New York street. The year is 1944. Joanie’s dad served in World War II. He was in the army and saw a lot of battles in Europe.  He fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He also went through the town we lived in when we lived in Germany in 1981.  We did a tribute to her dad just before they closed the Streets of America at Disney Hollywood Studios.  I got a 1940 Ike jacket (named after General Eisenhower) and Joanie made a dress that looked like it was from the 1940’s. We got s ome great pictures and you can see the whole story on this website.  The newspaper that I am holding is her dad’s unit paper and was the last paper they published.  It has all the places they were and it also has pictures of some of the places.  You can see the Going Home paper on this website under World War 1944..
Disney World Closes the Streets of America - March 2016 The Streets of America was made to look like streets of New York City and San Francisco. That’s A Wrap. Everybody was getting their picture in front of the That’s a Wrap sign. The sign was as you came out of “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”  play area. The girl in the front is Ann P.   We call her our selfie girl.  She loves to take selfies with the group and she’s very good at it.  So sad that the Star Wars wrecking  cranes came.  The force was not with us.  Disney is making room for the new Star Wars Land.  They have lots of land behind Hollywood Studios so why do you have to take things out just make the park bigger?      

We had a lot of fun.

 The Darlins had fun at what Marina called “Kiss the Streets of America Good-bye.” We had some great photos and a good turn out. The girls got to twirl on the New York Street.

Lights, Motors, Action The Lights, Motors, Action stunt show was taken down also when the Streets of America was closed.  They built this very large stadium and had very fast cars race around this very big set, fashioned to look like a European village.   Awesome finish. The cars had a little motor cycle engines in them.  They also had a motorcycle guy that could crash out of the store windows and it took me several tries to get the right shot of him jumping through the glass, but I finally got it.
