Disneyland Podcast water show show

I'm listening to this now as I post this and am wondering of there is any way that Wayne could post his videos of the laser effects from knots that he created?

I will see if I can do something. As I was telling the story, I was thinking to myself, "yea, no one is going to believe all this." So let me see what I can do.

I loved hearing his involvement in the creation of these water shows. There is so much work that goes on behind the scenes that we aren't aware of.

If you can get them on your computer see about posting them to the Dis youtube account.

Thanks Mary Jo. It was a great time in my life. Maybe we should have a movie night and we can all share "home movies".

Wayne - I loved this show. Do you remember the Sparkletts water show at Sea World? I remember that as a kid in the 70's. It was in an inside theatre where it was dark and cool and great on a hot summer day.

I enjoy the history that you bring to the DL podcast.

Yep, I certainly went to the Sea World show. Good show. Those fountains were mostly commercial formations made by Rain Jet. The Dancing Waters folks used to tease that show because "you could buy it at the hardware store". Lol. But the show was well done and I enjoy all water shows.

I got a "backstage tour" of the Sea World show once. Besides a very good automation system, their system had a major advantage over the Dancing Waters system; all their pumps had good filters so you didn't get particles in the jets that would block them. The Dancing Waters fountains only had big mesh filters and the little individual jets would always get clogged. I spent a lot of time each day cleaning jets by hand; all 1200 of them!

I just finished listening to this segment last night. Loved it! (Actually, Wayne could just read the dictionary and make it sound interesting! Fortunately, he picks good topics.) I've enjoyed all of his segments. Thanks!

I am mostly through this episode. Fascinating stuff!
I am glad this is being done. Our past, even details like Dancing Waters, jets, lasers, should be recorded

Great job, Wayne
