    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!! :laughing:

    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. ;) :goodvibes

    Crystal Palace for breakfast
    Teppan Edo (new for the boys)
    LeCellier for lunch
    Yak & Yeti for lunch
    Mama Melroses for lunch
    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:rotfl:

    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! :laughing:

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

    I would buy one as a playset, too! :laughing:

    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. :laughing:

    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. :lmao:

    It was very neat! All sorts of stuff in there from all aspects of Walt's life.

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

    Yum! All of those sound fantastic!

    Yes, he does! LOL!

    The Disney Urban Legend. :lmao:

    Yes, she was! :goodvibes

    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. :laughing: 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. :laughing:

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

    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.....

    Wow..how did I fall so far behind again. I missed three of them:confused3

    Great updates. I have never been to OMD either, but looking at the pictures makes me want to go.:goodvibes

    Where is the box from Gone with the Wind? That is one of my favorite movies and I don't think I have ever noticed it.

    He was a true visionary! :goodvibes

    I didn't realize that most of those things were on loan. That's very neat -- I like the thought of the exhibit changing from time to time!

    Her voice is about as iconic Disney as they come! :goodvibes

    Thank you!

    I went and looked at them yesterday! Drool is right! Those Peter Pan ones are precious!!!

    You're welcome! :goodvibes

    Scarlett has the best clothes even if she is a bit of a brat! :laughing:

    :rolleyes1;)

    Did Ziggy suspect that he was a topic of conversation last night? We were at my parents' for dinner, and I couldn't resist putting sweaters on their Manchesters (my big dogs can't wear clothes, so I have to play dress up with my parents' dogs). Well, Tippy (the girl) was not happy. She was all hang-dog -- acting like it was the worst thing in the world to be wearing the Christmas red sweater. I was trying to convince her it was a good thing and telling her all about Ziggy and his amazing fall/winter wardrobe. She wasn't buying it. :lmao: Toby, on the other hand, was all tail wagging and preening. :laughing:

    I have been updating a lot during this break.

    It is definitely worth seeing it! We really enjoyed it.

    It is over by Echo Lake. There is a big stack of crates -- one is addressed to Rick from Casablanca and another one to the guy from Citizen Kane.

    There is a billboard also with Roger Rabbit and the baby for a fictitious cartoon short.

    It is so neat in there -- all sorts of memorabilia!
