I've done that animation tour many times and I've definitely never seen that statue! I hope it does return.

The sculpture is Mickey and Leopold Stokowski not Igor Stravinsky. Stokowski was the conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra when Fantasia was made. The sculpture is from the scene in the movie when Mickey shakes Stokowski's hand.

Yes, that's right. I confused the two. Stravinsky composed "The Rite of Spring" which was used as one of the musical segments in Fantasia.

Well to my surprise an atrium CL room opened up with the AP rate for next weekend. We had a BLV booked and also the Wishes dessert Party, so we decided to give up the dessert party and book the CL room and watch the fireworks from the lounge my already perfect weekend trip just got better!!!!!

I am so excited for this! I couldn't justify CL for our recent trips to YC or WL, but this one seemed to make sense

Hi guys. I need some quick help. Can anyone tell me exactly where the meeting room "Atlantic A" is located and how to get there from the monorail stop? I assume it is in the convention center but I am not sure how to get over there.

The Atlantic Room is located on the 2nd floor. Get off the monorail and proceed down the escalator to the 4th floor Concourse. Turn to your right and take the escalator near the Outer Rim and Chef Mickey's. The Atlantic Room is somewhere on this level which is called The Americas Level where you would also check-in for CA Grill.

I am attending a yearly event known as "Reunion" that is for fans of the Disney podcast "WDW Today". This year it runs from November 29 to December 2. I will be staying at Pop, but the check-in for the event is at the Contemporary. I am so excited!
