Thanks. I can't take all the credit though. The pictures I posted were some of the ones I took and some of the ones Lady H took.

There was fire, isn't that enough? You want fireworks to? Man you're a hard one to please. To answer your question, no there are no fireworks. Those came after the show.

Trust me, that line's a keeper.

Please send the usage fee of $19.95, plus $2.95 processing fee to:

Just kidding. Only Ponzi charges a fee. I feel honored that you're using one of our pictures as your desktop.

Out of curiosity, which one are you using?

We have more pictures of Mickey's Fun Wheel. With the lights fixed. I'll post a link to all our pics once I get them organized a little better.

I thought about it, but then we all know how that ends.

One, Two Freddy's coming for you.
Three, Four better lock your door
Five, Six grab a crucifix
Seven, Eight better stay up late
Nine, Ten never sleep again.

This is Disney, we only want happy endings here.

It was really hard to really describe it. I mean how else can I say, "These water canons would shoot 50-100 feet in the air. The colorful LED lights would illuminate against the water and make it seem like the water was filled with light. " I figured it was just best to show you. There are some great youtube videos as well.

What rent? No offense, you do some incredible things with photoshop, but having Coppertone Nebo as my desktop would be a little scary.

Welcome home. Hope you had wonderful trip. Do we have another TR coming?

I think you need to visit your aunt and uncle as well. "Hi Auntie and Uncle, we're going to DL, want to come?"

Oh, wait. That's not what you meant when you said happy endings, is it.

<sigh>

No. When I read the TR, I thought, "Ok, gotta get some big name actors and then throw in Lilo for humor.... and with her well known propensity for excess, it would work with the 'water' part too.

The humor obviously didn't translate onto screen very well!

Plus when I was trying to think of 'stars', I first thought of Damon... then couldn't remember his freaking name! I remembered Tom Cruise... and he was big about 10-20 years ago... (Well big as in name... I believe he's only 3 feet tall). Then I just got tired of the whole thing and went with it.to show you. There are some great youtube videos as well.[/QUOTE]

Oh, I don't charge for having it as a desktop. I charge by the number of times you click on it to view it.

And you're waaaaaay behind.

"Behind".... heh.

Its one when the official show is over with the wheel mostly blue and green.
I wish I knew how to save it to my computer so I could keep it.

Great pix of WOC, T-Man! A FP really does give a good straight-on view.

I know you'll get to it if you did, but did you ride Mickey's Fun Wheel? The one time we were at DL and rode it, my DH renamed it "The Spinning Mickey Head Wheel of Death!" Yes, we had one of the sliding gondolas... which I thought was the coolest thing, but he was of a different opinion.

Ah. Lady H took that one. I don't know how much she charges. You'll have to get with her on her fees.
