    Hi there Alain. Whether it's concpt artwork or actual photos of Walt Disney studios, I can't get enough of this gorgeous park. The set of illustrations for Rock 'n Rollercoaster were my favorites. Fast and vibrant is what that ride's all about. Hope you will do an update on Toon Studios soon.

    It's funny the prop restaurant reminds me a lot of the restaurant that is located next to Star Tours at MGM. Also the art-deco restaurant "Rendezvous des Stars" reminds me of the main cafeteria/break room for the MGM cast members.

    Great to see the concept art, but it's worth pointing out that the RnR pre-show if different from the MGM one. It has a some nonsense about testing out a new ride for Aerosmith (you can see the coaster model that Steven Tyler plays with in the photo).
    It doesn't make a lot of sense, and is far weaker than Orlando's.

    As for Armageddon, it's not as exciting as it looks (though I do enjoy it), it just needs a serious re-do of the pre-show.
    And not even CyberSpace Mountain makes the TV Production tour worth taking...

    The DinoTopia set of the Backlot tour is disappointing, but the "Reign Of Fire" London set is pretty impressive.

    Keep those updates coming as ToT and Toon Studios take shape!

    Although I agree that the London set is beautifal (actually the only beautifal thing in Disney studios in my personal opinion) I'm surprised it's not mentioned that there's absolutely NO dragon. Just a flame that shoots out of a pit with dragon noises. It's pathetic. Was there ever a real animatronic dragon planned for this section that got axed or something? They could still fix it.... it's a shame to waste that beautifal set with a build-up that goes nowhere.

    That's exactly what I was thinking! It's not accurate to say there is a fire-breathing dragon; there is a jet of fire and you are supposed to pretend there's a really cool dragon just out of sight. (Is this attraction sponsored by Bic lighters?)
