    Don is discussing the process for filming in circlevision with the 11 cameras, because if one reel jammed they would have to throw out the other 10 all at once so it was really important that they all work.

    Kathy is discussing the nemo subs, the challenges of a linear story in a moving vhehicle where the audience would see things at different times.

    Tony Baxter talks about his fave project, based off his first meetings with george lucas, star tours and indy later on.

    But 2 months after 1st mtg w lucas, eisner came on board, and came to wdi and said he didn't really know themeparks, but his 14 year old son did, so michael brought his son to look at what they were working on, so tony had to pitch to eisner's son to get star tours and splash mountain (then called 'zippity run') greenlit. Marty adds "at least Michael knew who in his family had the better taste".

    So michael's son loved the pitches, and eisner asked how soon the rides could be ready. Dissapointed that they wouldn't have an offering for the next two years, they dreamed up the concept for what would become eo in the room that day.

    Kevin Rafferty tells a story about being a kid at disneyland dressed as a cowboy at the saloon in frontierland and wallyboag picked him out of the audience before his 'spraying teeth' bit, and that was the start of his disney life.

    I'm addicted to Disneyland. Disneyland hobbies are expensive. If I become a bum people are going to say "Don't give him money, he's just gonna use it on Disneyland."

    Saw it tonight. Definitely an improvement. Oddly enough everything else in Indy seemed to NOT be working. The lighting and doors in the Chamber of Destiny weren't working, and the vehicle stopping several times throughout the ride with several scenes delayed... we sat in silence for about 15 seconds at the boulder scene as the car seemed to feel like it was shutting down, with no music or effects. The audio began to cut out several times once the ride eventually continued and ended. But at least the new AA works!

    Morning everyone! We're starting day 2! First up is disneyland through the eyes of television, with Tim O'day and rob klein. Starting with walt's concept for the disneyland tv show as a way to pitch the park to the audience. We're watching the opening of the first episode of the show.
