We did jump over to DCA for a few things,
a fastpass for Tower of Terror was first on the list,
then it was over to Monsters, Where we caught a monster
in the process of using one of the vending machines in Monstropolis
Roz wished our birthday girl a Happy Birthday
While waiting for our fastpasses, we went to the Animation building
I Absolutely LOVE the lobby!!! It's one of my favorite place in all of DLR!
But this is the first time I could get some half way decent pics of the lobby
We did watch the Toy Story zoetrope, and watched the entire lobby sequence, and then visited with Crush, although none of our group asked any questions it was fun as always.
During my trip, I also spent some extra time in the Sorcerer's Workshop. Ever since the muppet quest at the end of last year (in which one of the questions featured part of the artwork on one of the wall in the first room) I have wanted to spend some more time looking at all the details in this incredible room!
Most people are more familiar with this part of the animation building as where the Beast's Library is (where you can find out which character you are most like) or Ursula's Grotto ( where you can place your voice in a disney animated character ). BUT if you zoom through the first room, you really miss the most amazing room of them all!
After you enter the room, turn around, or you just might miss this mural of Walt
And don't dash through the room without taking a closer look at those crystal stalagtite light fixtures. The one to the left of Walt, notice the horns in the fixture.
Yeah, that's the one. Now, take a closer look .......
I want that in my house!
Now, look at this other Curious light
and a little lower
And there are a couple of lighted murals that are just as beautifully detailed
And a closer look at the top side and bottom of the frame
Take a little time to create your own drawing and place it in motion, or watch some of the ones already in the cylinders, or on the walls.
Then look at these images in the glass capsules, and spin the handle
Flotsam and Jetsam are on the top
(and notice some of the beautiful drawings on the walls!)
spin the handle on either side and two pictures become one
on the one above, ursula is on one side, and ariel is on the other side
Here is another lighted mural
you can see Zeus at the top center,
with the Hydra on either side
and Hades at the base
Another Crystal Light, by looking at the clues above the light, you might be able to find out who may be in there
And another Crystal Light
Although I'm not sure why the red light, maybe sybolizing the ruby that Abu was entranced by?
And of course, the Magic Mirror tells us what lies ahead
Next, we continue our journey to the Beast's Library . . . .
