    That is so funny. There was a Facebook link to that video yesterday and I was watching it with my husband last night and showed him the goosebumps on my arms. He was laughing at me!

    Might be a really bone-head question but here goes.

    What is the significance of the big "white" building right next to the castles? Will it be hosting the new Harry Potter ride? If so, then wow! <That's a big building for it.

    I don't think its part of the Jurassic Park ride but I could be mistaken.

    There is going to be a Frog Choir (as someone mentioned upthread)

    At the recent bigwig party, it looks like they were demonstrating this. If you look carefully where I have circled, you can see the wire that goes from the large rock to the back of the demostrators (and presumably into the frog animatronics they are holding on the cushion)

    They had another big wig party last night, this time it looked like a retirement part for Tom Williams...though didnt know he was retiring. Anyway, all the train effects were working, and they had the castle lit up all nice and purdy.
    Some detailed pics here.
    Heard that the Frog choir was in full effect last night, but couldnt hear or get any of it on film. It's just getting cooler and cooler with all the stuff that keeps popping up.
