And, both DCA and WDW share the same film, even though California is like 3,000 miles from Florida...an amazing ride nonetheless. However, transitions between scenes could be better, but the music score is AWESOME.

    On a sidenote, Epcot's Soarin' is themed like an Airport...it's quite cool.

    Now, WHY'S THE RUM GONE!?!?!

    Yes it is open right now, so is WDW's...a clone, like the 11 Batman the Rides throughout the Six Flags chain.

    1.) A cast member told me it had the extra theater, they are probably wrong and you are probably right, my apologies.
    2.) In the Six Flags chain, "Batman the Rides"=B&M Inverts...nothing else. Batman the Escape is an Intamin stand-up, Batman the Dark Knight is a B&M floorless and Batman Knight Flight was a B&M floorless (now is not SF park), and Batman and Robin the the Chiller are Premier dual-track LIM launches. Batman THE RIDE is a clone or mirror image of the same B&M invert track layout of the world's first invert built in 1992 at SF Great America. A little FYI, this layout is so popular, intense, and compact that it has been cloned for Busch parks and other parks worldwide.

    Soarin' Over California is still at DCA...

    I also miss the old Disney Channel specials with behind the scenes looks at Disneyland backstage and special features about the theme parks. Now it's all preteen sitcoms...

    Hey and get this, Disney channel canceled that to put on shows like Lizzy Mcguire for the younger audience! Now I say to myself, what parent would let their children stay up past midnight on a school night to let their children watch these shows?

    I am glad to know that the classics are now coming out on DVD though. I bet Zorro will be making its rounds sooner or later.

    That's what summer was for... and I did, sometimes. Yay for being a night owl!

    Davy Crocket came out on the Tresures collection along with part of the Mickey Mouse Club. Zorro is often requested and hopefully will be coming out soon. I can't wait for the rest of the Mickey Mouse Club!

    I totally agree. The old channel - even as recent as like, 2001, with the Zoog stuff and the cool Imagineer commercials - was so much better than the crapola that's on now.
