    Here's what I think... (remember just who they are coming from!!)


    Area Development... any area that has been developed..


    Audio Animatronics... Robots that sing


    Berm... Like a hospitals code blue..

    BGM... Brother of MGM..

    Blue Sky... um.. a sky that is not grey...

    Brain Storm... when the voices in your head argue...

    Charrette... A cherry flavored cigarette..

    Concept... What happens when two people fall in love and then the stork brings a baby...

    Dark Ride... When a ride breaks down and you're stuck in the dark..

    Elevation... Building up..

    E-Ticket... Tickets with the letter "E" printed on them

    Kinetics... beats the heck out of me...

    Maquette... bigger than a quartette..

    Plan... what you're going to do next...

    Plussing... another name for adding...

    POV... Pretty Odd Voices...

    Propping... leaning oneself against a wall.. ie.. The man was propping himself against the ToT

    Section... A piece of something

    Show... opposite of hide

    Story... anything that comes out of my mouth...

    Storyboard... anthing I draw..

    Theme .... The.... Me....

    THRC... "trash hiding recptical container".. aka.. a garbage can..

    Visual Intrusion... when a over sized person sits in front of you at fantasmic...

    Weenie... What I call Gumpy Dude..

    Smile lets see.......

    1. blue sky is what the imagineers call brain storming.
    2. elevation is the drawing of what the building looks like from different real world angles
    3. i know more but don't want to say them all
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    I only know what this is because I was an art student and was once going to Disney to be an animator once.Well let just say that what I wanted to do a long time ago.


    Maquette- It a small model/sculpture of a character that they use for rides and also movies
    Storyboard these I hate because I never could come up with good idea(Hence why I'm not an animator )You use these to tell the whole story of either the moive or ride. It a really rough draft of what you will see.
