    It started in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle between 10:30 and 11:00am. Prior to the start a serious of announcements let the "citizens of Earth" know that the evil Emperor Zurg was going to invade. However, when the ceremony came the green army men marched from inside to the front of the castle, followed by Buzz Lightyear riding a miniature green hummer driven by an army man (woman). Buzz promised to protect everyone and a green army sergeant (one of the Billies from the Golden Horseshoe), asked for volunteers to fight Zurg. The volunteers took an oath. Buzz then requested LGM (little green men) reinforcements from Star Command. Dozens of elementary school children (from Green Elementary School) exited the castle wearing green Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blaster t-shirts and little headpieces with shamrock antennas. The group then marched down Main Street and back to the entrance of the ride. A small number of the school children were give toy ray blasters and shot the door to the ride. Pyrotechnics on the door flashed, the door opened and two air cannon shot tons of green shamrock confetti into the air. The children entered the ride ... end of ceremony.

    Not that I was aware of. Some people were picking up the shamrock confetti, however.

    End of ceremony...but beginning of humor as the smoke from the pyro set off the smoke detectors, forcing the ride to be evacuated and fire officials called in to clear it.

    Are you serious?! Wowzers. I'd almost say that's a bad omen . . . but it doesn't seem to be shaping that way.

    If that is true, it is ROTFLMAO! Can anyone else confirm this faux paus by the Entertainment department? (Won't be the last, remember the drunk dwarves?)

    Doesn't sound too bad. I stood in standby with the line filling about half of Ariel's Grotto. And even with the ride, at that time, coming to a stop every 5 feet (don't know what their problem was that day), it took less than an hour. When running properly the line moves quick. I'd guess that line would have taken well under 2 hours, pretty quick for opening day of an attraction.

    I guess that's true, but it is also a Thursday ... I am afraid to see it over Spring Break ....
