Thanks for sharing! That's an incredibly cool workspace and about what I'd expect from Disney.

It's nice to finally see, what the DCA carousel is being turned into. Jessie's Critter Carousel works for me. :smile:
Great first part of your tour, Robb. I too love seeing "behind the scenes" at things like Disney Attractions (and
musical theatre as well). It never takes away from the final "product", for myself.

Thanks for sharing all of this (so far), Robb! :mickey:

Isn't this the first time, that anybody's done something with the inside of enclosed lift hills? I mean, other than just
lighting done inside them, and/or smoke and moving lights etc? And with scenes at the beginning and end of it, too?
Just curious of me.

I know the one like Fluch Von Novgorod has done it, and that was an enclosed launched coaster, too.

Also, the fact they keep showing what's going to be in the first lift hill (Elastigirl and Jack-Jack on the loose), makes me all
the more curious about what's going to be happening in that second lift hill. :smile:

We never mentioned exactly which tube all that theming was going into... or if the tubes are going to be changed, expanded, etc... :Pr

^ Well, :oops: Sorry. I can't be there for at least a year and some months, so (over)imagining is all I got for now. :smile:

I love that Disney is finally doing stuff like this. For what felt like my entire life, they never did any sort of behind the scenes stuff.

This makes me a lot more optimistic about Pixar pier (to which my initial reaction was meh)

Wow, the WDI office is truly a magical place. The DISH is just mindblowing, but I wouldn't have been able to leave the model sculpting room. I hope you got to spend a decent amount of time there; I love those Haunted Mansion models. Is this the same WDI building where Walt used to give his presentations on EPCOT (the original proposed city) and all the rides being designed back in the 60's? So incredibly cool that you got to see this side of imagineering!!! :mickey:
