Aww, I love the Typhoon Lagoon model! (Even though we're not water park people!) Walt's office even makes me want to reach for the tissues-- to think of the empire a single man started and what it means to so many people is just awe-inspiring!

I'm so glad you enjoyed One Man's Dream, Jackie! The kids and I spent much more time in there than I thought we would last year. It is a truly fascinating exhibit! It really drives home that message that if you believe in and work hard on you dreams, you can accomplish anything! Just look at what Walt accomplished! That movie made me tear up too.

What a fun exploration of "One Man's Dream" -- I have not been in there myself, and hopefully will make it the next time we go, but your insider's pics were great! Thanks so much for sharing! I love the Roger Rabbit outline on the window!!

I always enjoy going through One Man's Dream. I look forward to seeing what has been updated.

I always forget to look for the Roger Rabbit references when I am around Echo Lake. Next time.

Chef's De France not sure if lunch or dinner

Love the pics of Connor with the Toy Soldier. He really gets into his "role"!!

We have always gotten the gangster in GMR & my husband did not even believe me when I told him there was a cowboy also

Chelsea must have been thrilled when she got the pic of Bo & friends.

How neat! I would love to see that dragon someday!!!

I had no idea beforehand that Julie Andrews narrated the movie -- that made it even better in my opinion.

It was a very large crate! Lots of room for dresses!

It wasn't too terribly long, but it was very well-done, and it was nice to sit for awhile.

It is awe-inspiring to think about all that Walt did and how many times he was completely broke but kept doing it.

I was so glad we were finally able to do One Man's Dream. The kids and Charles even enjoyed it. Sometimes with exhibits like that, the rest of my family just indulges me.

You definitely should do it -- there was a lot of neat stuff in there! Connor and I love finding those Roger Rabbit things when we are there. Over at Backlot Express they have the Toon Patrol car.

It figures that as soon as I manage to do One Man's Dream, they refurb it and add new stuff.

I do love finding all the movie nods around DHS. There are so many, I am sure I am missing tons of them.

But at least you did get to do it before they took it down to refurb. An article I read said since it was meant to be up only for about a year, lost of stuff that was on loan was finally given back. I think that Mary Poppins dress was one of them.
I think this will be one of those forever changing exhibits and always changing for the better.

So visit often and takes lots of pictures.

A refurb at One Man's Dream? I guess it's time to go back in!

Jackie, was just on Ebay looking at ornaments and happened on some Mary Blair and thought of you! Oh my goodness! So cute and pricey! You must take a look and drool along with me.....

Gone With the Wind is one of my favorite movies too. I never tire of watching it
