  • "Similar to Main Street, U.S.A. sections" perhaps it's "Similar to the ... sections" (that reads better to me, at least).
  • Changed.
  • "acts as" followed by "serves as" isn't brilliant prose for me.
  • Changed.
  • "A similar format is also used in" no need for "also".
  • Changed.
  • Only one sentence in the lead is directly referenced. This is a bit innocuous as generally the lead shouldn't have information that doesn't appear in the main body, and that's where you could reference it like you have everything else in the lead.
  • "Over the years" not particuarly encyclopedic writing.
  • Opening date is mentioned in the infobox, and nowhere else, and isn't referenced.
  • Image captions only take full stops if they're complete sentences.
  • Could link Flag of Canada for those who don't know what it looks like.
  • Fixed.
  • "80 by 50 feet" consider the use of the {{convert}} template so people who read metric units can understand this.
  • Fixed.
  • "a half-hour rotation" would prefer "a 30-minute rotation".
  • Fixed.
  • "the lights were upgraded" it also appears they increased the number from 504 to 300,000, surely worth a mention? Oh, it is mentioned but three paras later, why?
  • "world's largest expanse of interlocking paving stones". Quotes should be directly attributed.
  • The Toronto Star is actually The Toronto Star.
  • Its name change happened in the early 2000s, so then it was The Toronto Star, now it's the Toronto Star.
  • "forlorn looking person" should be hyphenated (forlorn-looking).
  • Are we allowed to correct the punctuation in quotes?
  • Where are Damas and Caballeros?
  • Sorry, I've reworded it to specific "Latin themed washrooms".
  • "Overlooking front gate is Maple Room" -> "Overlooking the front gate is the Maple Room".
  • Half of that was residue from working there; employees now "front gate" as a location, not a description, so they never use the word "the". Fixed.
  • "higher end" hyphenate.
  • "Front Gate Complex" vs "the front gate" is that consistent? The image has "Front Gate"... Section heading is "Front gate"....
  • I've put quotation marks around Front Gate Complex, as the term appears in the referenced planning document, but doesn't appear elsewhere. In practice, at least in recent years, it's just "Front gate".
Way at the back of this photo, between Snoopy and Charlie Brown.
  • Perhaps it's because I'm a Brit, but what's a "souvenir cart"?
  • It's an outdoor gift shop kiosk that can be moved/removed depending on demand. They never move during a park season, only between them, but they are the first things to be shuttered, because of their limited stock and only one staff member. I couldn't find another term online; here's a pic from Disney World.
  • "one ride now actually exits the park" no need for "actually".
  • Fixed.
  • "2012, actually encroaches" again, no need for actually.
  • Fixed.
  • Why all the talk of "guests"? Too corporate, these people are "visitors" to the rest of us.
  • "metal detectors were added to the gates and security was doubled " don't see this information in the reference.
  • Replaced with a different reference.
  • "Eis featured fresh fruit" what's that?
  • The name of the restaurant stand was "Eis". Would italics be of benefit?
  • "In 2005 or earlier..." eh? Don't understand.
  • "In or before 2007" similarly. This is really odd.
  • Why [note 1] etc? If the information is useful, put it in the article.
  • John Player & Sons has an article.
  • Agreed, but the store sold other Imperial Tobacco brands as well, so I'm not sure how useful the link would be.
  • Fixed.
  • "St. Albans" is "St Albans".
  • Fixed.
  • "and in spite of other locations of the chain within the park." personal research?
  • Not meant as such, but I've reworked that fragment to be a separate, referenced sentence that doesn't fall under OR.
  • "In recent years, it was renamed " what are "recent years"?
  • Fixed.
  • "in the early years" similar comment. Not particularly encyclopedic writing.
  • Fix the [citation needed] tag.
  • Looks like a little undue weight given to the drowning and subsequent inquest...
  • "a variety of entertainment" followed by "a variety of songs" is repetitive prose.
  • Fixed.
  • Be consistent with date formats in the references.
  • Fixed.
  • Ref 30 has a maintenance tag.
  • The link is dead.

GA criteria[edit]

GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    Many issues picked up with the prose above, and referencing in the lead.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (reference section): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    Some direct attribution required, some informatoin appears to be missing from some sources.
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    Undue weight in my opinion given to the drowning incident.
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images and other media, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free content have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    Caption punctuation needs to be addressed.
  7. Overall:
    Good luck improving the article! The Rambling Man (talk) 08:28, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
