  • I don't think it was ever established that Mickey and Minnie were married.

    In the meantime, the Tribune says that Star Wars Land will open on May 31. I was pretty sure Krustyland was going to follow, but a search indicates that Fox sold the rights to that to Universal before it sold the studios.

  • In reply to jack:

    Would you believe a common-law marriage?
