    Nemo Press Party 6-10-07 (Event photos & TR)

    Here's a look at the press preview party for the Nemo Submarines ride, Sunday night, 6-10-2007. The closed off almost half of Tomorrowland for this shin-dig. I'll start with a daytime view from Space Mountain...




    Next, a view of the band at Tomorrowland Terrace.



    A table setting, with the Terrace in the background.


    This is near the entrance to the party. The giant Nemo is actually just a costume sitting on the ground. It looked like a normal prop until I got up close and spotted the screened eye-holes.



    I loved these giant floating jellyfish. There was also a really cool lighting effect projected onto the Tomorrowland side of the Matterhorn. It looked like the reflections at the bottom of a pool. It was all pretty surreal.



    They had a bunch of themed bars set up throughout the area. I've always said that free booze is the one sure way to get journalists to your staged media event. And Disney's media relations people never miss a beat.



    Here's one of the dessert tables behind the stage. I had some kind of pineapple-froth-cake thing that was really good. All the catering was pretty elaborate. In fact, I'd say "elaborate" was really the key word for the whole event.



    This tall, dancing, horizontal, reef/man/thing was dancing to the music all evening.



    Until a month ago, I'd never met Tony Baxter. And now our trails have crossed twice. Small world indeed.



    More photos to come...

    I can't reveal my sources, of course. But I can tell you I was very pleasantly surprised to learn I was going.

    Actually, I met Mr. Baxter the first time at an unrelated event up in La Crescenta last month. Just a strange cooincidence. He seems a nice enough fellow.

    Now for more photos...

    Another snazzy prop for guest photos. (Innoventions is in the background.)




    Another elaborate bar. Now I can say I've had a cocktail in Tomorrowland, which is kinda fun.



    I believe this is Ron Dominguez in red. For those who don't know, his family owned some of the land Disneyland now occupies. He later went on to become a VP for Disney.



    Here I am consulting with my lawyer.



    Yet more photos on the way...

    A view of the alley next to Innoventions, which leads toward Autopia. The lighting throughout the event was really striking.



    Your truly, with the sub-mobile. (Yes, the gulls were squawking, "Mine! Mine! Mine!")



    Rodents of unusual size.



    Gotta dig those scuba go-go girls!



    The dance floor featured animated projections, with fish darting back and forth.



    Goofy, dancing. Donald was also there, but you already know what he looks like in a sailor suit.



    Here's the "blue carpet" at the entrance to the party.



    And I'll end it on my favorite shot of the night: The Matterhorn, lit up by all the funky underwater special effects.



    Sorry you couldn't all be there with me. And thanks to everyone involved in making this event happen and getting me there. You know who you are.

    That Minnie was getting DOWN with her bad self. I'm serious, she knew some MOVES! You have NOT lived until you've seen Minnie shake it to "Lady Marmalade"... that band was HOT!

    I wish they had them ("Splash") during the summer nights! MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better than "Brooke and the Boyz".

    Wonderful TR, thanks for sharing. I appreciate that you explained what was around the event for people like me who have never been there.

    Tell me something though, I know here, they don't sell any alcohol in MK, I realize this was a special event but does that rule also apply in DL?
