WOW...Lou see what happens when you write a great book!
I can say nothing this week other than just WOW!!!
Earlier this week, Dave O'Neal, of the Extinct Attractions Club, had a rare and wonderful opportunity to meet Roy Disney, in preparation for their upcoming 50th Anniversary special DVD. Roy will appear in many of their upcoming DVD videos including the nearly finished All New Tribute to Carousel of Progress!
While there, Dave was kind and generous enough to give Mr. Disney his copy of the Walt Disney World Trivia Book!!!!! Like I said - WOW! Roy Disney with my book! I'm speechless!!!!
Better yet, he said that Roy believed, "Walt would have supported our efforts..." I couldn't ask for any higher praise than that!! Roy also loves all out pourings of fan appreciation (can you say DWT.com?!)
Boy oh boy... this week is just getting better and better. I can't thank dave enough for doing something for me that I never would have had the opportunity to do myself... and considering he doesn't really know me from a hole in the wall, I can't say enough nice things about him.
To be honest, I've been a fan of the Extinct Attraction Club DVDs for some time, and that's what initially led me to conatct Dave. I strongly suggest you visit his site at http://www.extinct-attractions-club.com, and check out some of his amazing videos!
The production value alone is worth the price of the DVD, but the ability to visit some of our favorite old attractions is priceless to WDW fans like you and me.
Some of my personal favorites in my library:
If You Had Wings / Dream Flight / Take Flight
Epcot Center Universe Of Energy
Epcot Center Journey into imagination Historical DVD
Epcot Center 1978-1982 Planning Films rare DVD
Carousel of Progress attraction Historical DVD
Like I said, what a week! My sincere thanks again to Dave O'Neal, and to Roy Disney for keeping Walt's dreams alive.

Lou, it won't be long now until WDW will be giving you a call; hopefully, it won't be in the middle of the night!
P.S. I wish Nephew Roy (looking good at 75) would grow his Mousetache back! He would look more like Uncle Walt.
