    That wasn't Dave Smith's presentation. That was your old broken record, getting played again.

    No kidding- I just recently returned to MC after a many year absence. It's disconcerting to see so much unhappiness-

    What makes you unhappy with Disney, and what would you do to change it if you could?

    As I said, I cannot divulge my sources.
    Though, some around here just can't take a joke.

    Soooo....how was the presentation? I was stuck at work. Wish I could have made it.
    I actually heard this said by a CM over the loud speakers at Big Thunder in 1995, "Please do not sit on the rocks. You will fall...and you will die."

    It was classic Dave Smith. He had color slides photos of Disneyland's construction, as well as old photographs of past park attractions/shops/restaurants. As always, he was very knowledgeable about every topic and mixed some of his own humor and opinions into the presentation.

    Really a great time!

    It was actually very interesting. I brought some friends and they thought it was going to be a long, boring, and arduous lecture but it was kept very interesting with a considerable amount of humor and they actually ended up enjoying it very much. By the end of the hour we were wishing we had more time. We saw many color photos of Disneyland construction and many attractions that now cease to exist. There were many attractions that I have never really known about (and I'm a pretty big Disney geek!) and it was fun to hear about them and see great quality color photos of them.

    I was in Disneyland the day of the event but did not go as it was my Girl Friends birthday. Looked somewhat interesting but Im not sure if he could tell us anything the documentaries dont already tell us.

    Idk when I goto Disneyland I don't think to goto an event like this.
