Wow, I never knew that about Tinkerbell!
Wow, this forum is Soooo Loooong! It took me almost a week to get through it.
I do have a couple of fun secrets and facts.
First, at the Cosmic Ray Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland (MK), the stage where Sonny Eclipse performs actually rises into the ceiling revealing a second stage below it. When I was in high school my show choir performed there. We got to go in the staff tunnels to get to the elevator for the stage and rise up on it. It was very cool to see backstage, -passing some of the costume rooms.
Another secret is about Tinkerbell during Wishes. My friend was a CM and told me that because of the weight requirement there are only a few people that can "fly." One is an elderly lady, and the other is actually a guy!
My last little fun fact is that the Tree of Life (AK) was constructed from an oil rig shipped inland from the Gulf of Mexico. Then they created the outside around it. The leaves and branches actually sway in the wind.
I am super excited about my trip in a month! I haven't been in five years, and I'm going with my BF who has NEVER been! We're staying at the All-Star Music, and were lucky enough to get a reservation at CRT! Since we're only being there a few days, we're only checking out MK and Hollywood (along with Downtown Disney and the Boardwalk.) I'm going to keep checking around this site for more tips!
Wow, I never knew that about Tinkerbell!
I have been to the TT VIP lounge with LivLuvsTink. It was very creative and clean. We got into the TT VIP lounge because we met a nice lady that was from Pittsburgh and my family and LivLuvsTink's family all love Pittsburgh. GO STEELERS IN THE SUPER BOWL!
A dream is a
wish that will come true!
I know on here somewhere that it talks about Lady and The Tramps paw prints. Wanted to post a pic of that since I had found it on my last trip down.
i've been a fan of lou's podcast since almost the beginning, but i have just recently joined the forum. i love reading about all the little secrets about the parks and have read all 77 pages of this thread... the thing i really want to know is whether or not the umbrella from "singin in the rain" is still there in disney hollywood studios??? my fiance and i are heading to wdw NEXT WEEK (!!!!!) and we would really love to see it (we both love the movie)! i haven't seen any posts about it on this thread since the 2007 posts, so i am wondering if it is still there. does anyone know?

I'm ADDICTED to my and
When I was younger we always stayed at the Contemporary because it was so convenient in location to the Magic Kingdom. My sisters and I have rode in the front car a few times, once the driver let me stand next to him and he let me put my hands on the lever...he put his over mine and told me that I was actually driving. During the same trip, he let me make the announcements into the PA system on the train...when we got off of the monorail the rest of my family that was sitting in the back told me that they heard everything that I said...It was a "Magical Moment!"

My family friend actually works at GM and we get the privilege of using the lounge. The first time my family used it I wasn't able to be with them since I was in school at the time. All I heard about from them was this lounge and the free soda and snacks that they received. We went back down this winter break and I was so excited to enter this lounge and get free food and drinks inside Disney. Turns out this recession has hit GM hard. When we finally got up there and made it to where the food and drinks were supposed to be there was a nice little saying explaining very politely that due to the recent economic crisis GM has had to make many cuts and it turns out they could no longer afford chips and soda for their VIP members. I found this rather hilarious and we all got a good laugh about it. And yes the view is wonderful. We took a couple of pictures up there but I cant seem to get them on here
Also made it into the VIP lounge at Mission: Space. They had many drinks and some wonderful hot chocolate even though it was 70 degrees out. They also had a couple of games and a station where you could send an interactive email to friends. Wonderful times. Being able to go to the front of the line whenever your ready to ride isn't too shabby either
Nothing is more powerful than the imagination. For it can also expand your greatest fears into an overwhelming nightmare.
Some imagination, huh ha!!
Hiya! I'm kinda new to the boards and it doesn't look like anyone has posted on here in a while but I have a question. My family and I are leaving for WDW the second week of June and I was wondering if the paintbrush hunt on Tom Sawyers island was still going on. I don't want to bother getting there early just to find that it's not going on anymore '^^
As for tips, the only thing I can say is to take your time and make sure you enjoy everything. It's a vacation so take some time to just sit back, relax and enjoy your time in the happiest place on Earth!
Yes i too wish to know if the paintbrush hunt is still going on. I also would like to say welcome to the boards and ill probably see you in disneyworld somewhere. =) june7th-june15th
