    Re: Disney Exhibit, Regan Library - PICS!

    Brian,

    You're lucky to live that close to the museum - that was a horrid trek from OC, and I'm originally from Woodland Hills!
    Since you didn't recognize the prop from Bedknobs & Broomsticks, I say you must watch it! Very cool film a bit ahead of it's time.
    I agree - great place to visit regardless of your political affiliations.
    Lastly, I feel like an idiot for not recognizing the piece of the Berlin wall. No wonder tourists were posing for pics with it! <OOPS>
    Please consider the environment before printing useless emails

    Nice pics, thanks for sharing!
    Yeah, "mom's" reference must have been thinking it was Chitty.

    Seeing the Flubber Car does make me think that it would be fun if Radiator Springs would occassionally host other Special Guest Star Cars from tv and movies. There are several that could be used, and or invited, from the Flubber car, Walt's private electric cars he used in Disneyland, Herbie aka the Love Bug, Benny the Cab, invite the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, yeah, dreaming here, but even KITT could be invited for a visit. I saw there are real cars built that look like the ones in Wacky Races (if anyone remembers that older H/B toon.

    Thank you for the pictures! I would love to see the exhibit. It looks amazing.

    I still have my viewmaster and a bunch of different Disneyland Land reels still in their packaging! They were a great way to see the Park when we weren't going to be there for another year when I was young!

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!

    Re: Disney Exhibit, Regan Library - PICS!

    Sorry about the bad spelling in the title! I am such a snob when it comes to spelling too. I am unable to edit the title so Unless a moderator can fix it, I'll live with the shame.

    Spectroman, now you know how we feel on our drive to DLR, although is not so bad on a weekend morning (less than an hour drive), or before 2pm on or after 7pm on a Weekday. Once we left on a Friday at like 3:30 and it took 3.5 hours. Horrible. There was an accident, and stalled car before the accident.

    Re: Disney Exhibit, Regan Library - PICS!

    I saw this post a few weeks ago so I went today. The library itself is well worth the hour's drive from LAX, but the Disney exhibit was a really great bonus. It's there through April. Unfortunately, I stayed until closing (5:00PM) and it took me two hours to get home to Torrance.

I was there early in the day so did not partake of anything, still on caffeine at that point of course but you can have an actual beer there in a real Irish pub imported from Ireland. board for board. Its below Air Force one in the large area with the huge windows for any Irish missing home. Really cool actually.
    Ooh! Do they have Guinness on tap?
