I didn't realize there was a maximum thread length. Too bad as there are some long-standing classics here on the board.

If you like secrets, I suggest picking up "The Imagineering Field Guide to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World". I got mine for $9.99 at Waldenbooks and it is the same size as a park map folded, so- easy for travel.
They also had one for Epcot and Animal Kingdom. There was none for Studios, either because they don't make or they were out.

I was disappointed to learn that the meteors projected on the walls of Space Mountain were NOT chocolate chip cookies after all. (sometimes the rumors are more fun than the truth)

I did learn that the Fire Station in Town Square is called Engine House 71 because of WDW opening in 1971.

found this on another thread...

When you're on the "belt" after the ride there is one boot print and one "peg leg" dot in yellow paint on it. I guess it's supposed to depict Davy Jones leaving the ride as well?

Talking

Hello everyone,

Please e-mail me at dcanoli@comcast.net.

I get so many requests for the Word document of our thread, that requests left on this board tend to clog it up.

I believe I have gotten everyone a copy that requested one the past few days. (My family was on vacation for a few days.)

Thanks! Deb

Another "secret:"

If you have a special needs child with a disorder that falls under the autistic spectrum or is hypersensitive, you can get a note from their doctor and take it to guest services. They will give you a special assistance card. When you get to an attraction, show it to the CM working there. It doesn't mean that you don't have to wait in line, but they will try to take you into a quieter area for your wait. You can get a sample note from www.allearsnet.com.

Another kind of Stretmosphere

Many of you may enjoy catching the Streetmosphere entertainers at Disney's Hollywood Studios, this has proved so popular that in recent years the Magic Kingdoms Main Street has begun to develop "Main Streetmosphere" of its own, building on some of the exisiting entertainment strength the Magic Kingdom has, this seems to be growing in a slightly different direction than at the studios, some of the sets seem to looser with more of a meet and greet quality to them, and other sets, the ones that are more planned out, tend to incorporate music. You may have seen Mayor Weaver, or Fire Chief Miller, standing on the sidewalk in front of the movie theatre with the Toontown Tuners sometimes even involving the Dapper Dans as folks stream into the park in the mornings, but I recently saw a set a bit later in the morning that involved almost all of the citizens of Main Street that were out that day, Fire Chief "smokey" Miller, Mayor Christopher Weaver, The Ladies Main Street Auxilliary, the Toontown Tuners, lots of audience participants AND they use the fire engine during this set. For the first two songs the Toontown Tuners were playing solo over on the hospitality House side of Town Square. At he end of their second song the Fire Engine pulls up with Mayor and Chief Miller, the Tuners board the Engine and they all ride over to City Hall (as the tuners are playing Hot Time in the old Town Tonight). Upon arrival Chief Miller introduces the whole group which now includes the suffragettes as "the Citizens of Main Street", as the full cast launches into "Down on old Main Street". After the song when \ Mayor Weaver tries to announce for re election the "Main Street Womens Auxiliary" steps up, after their rendition of Sister Suffragette, the Mayor is fine with them getting the vote as long as they vote for him, but when he once again launches into "campaign mode" questions arise about accusations against the mayor of corruption, which he handles humorously with the song "little tin box". When the song ends, he returns to making more typical (but still humorous) campaign promises. Then stumbles on the word Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, so the whole cast helps him with it (in song of course). Following that they close with a short and fitting reprise of "Down on old Main street". The singing citizens then talk with the guests a bit while the tuners march off. if you're interested in seeeing this check with some of these same performers next time you're on Main Street and ask if they are doing the Fire Engine set with the Tuners that day, if you'd like to hear it BEFORE the next time you go you can listen to it in on my web site if you'd like (it's in an mp3) http://www.bigbrian-nc.com/sn28.htm
