    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Nope, you're right about the fly thing. I actually thought that it was really cool that it actually sounded like a real fly and I liked the other parts of it as well, like the clipping of the hair and the guy blowing the hair off of your neck. It was creepy how real it all seemed!

    Disney really misses out on their own history.

    First, end the Steve Martin movie, stick it on DVD and it will sell like hot cakes and we all have it to remember.

    Next, cut out the hokeyness of the 3D sound lincoln. I keep expecting somebody to say, "At no point will we stoop to any 3D sound tricks." Then Lincoln says, "Did somebody say 3D sound?" And he releases some snake cans that you hear whizzing by you.

    But I say, do a short bio film about why Lincoln was so historic for Disney and read a few reviews from the papers. Use some of the old Disney Story footage in the film, and then you get to see the finale of the original show... where Lincoln stands and gives his speech with Battle Hymn of the Republic, but this is immediately following seeing Walt talking about Lincoln, seeing the Lincoln mask, all that. Not in a preshow, but in the main show.

    The rest of the preshow area can remain because the Lincoln show is now really about Disney even though Lincoln is in it.

    Besides, that amputation thing really depresses me. The Gruesomest Place on Earth. Yeah, it happens in real life but I go to Disneyland to escape.
    Favorite sites of the moment:
    Mice Age
    Mouse Clubhouse
    TV Shows on DVD
