    Cool PHOTO UPDATE 11/5/06 - The Music Behind the Magic exhibit at the EMP in Seattle

    WELCOME TO THE CLOSEST THING TO DISNEYLAND WE HAVE IN THE NORTHWEST!

    "The Music Behind the Magic
    Disney 1928-Today"
    exhibit showing at the Experience Music Project in Seattle, WA
    Nov. 4, 2006-Sept. 9, 2007



    Well, if you have read Melonballers EMP update you know that we had a mini-meet which was great. I actually didn't see any signs and wasn't approached by anyone about my picture taking so I kept on with my MiceChatter duties! I ended up with quite a few pictures, some of which are a little blurry so I will try to be picky about what I post. I really enjoyed the exhibit and thought that it was well done. It was smaller than I would have thought, after attending Disneyland’s 50th exhibit in Oakland, but I am glad I got to see it.

    I thought that the signs, posters and banners all looked pretty cool


    I loved the use of "hidden Mickey's" in the exhibit

    You could get an audio guide and all of the numbers to key in were little Mickey's.

    As you enter, there is a map of the areas of the exhibit


    Each section is broken down into interactive sections




    Original storyboard sketches for Pinochio were awesome



    Hear multiple versions of Disney songs sung over the years by different artists


    Snow White's Mirror

    Some movie posters


    Costumes from Mary Poppins

    and Babes in Toyland

    Original sketches for Mickey (Melonballer's favorite!)





    Some memorabilia and original sheet music to go with the sketches




    Melonballer got a kick out of this sign so I had to take a picture!


    Sound effects displays were very cool and the families that were visiting were all over these!!
    They explained how sound effects are made and showed some displays of the types of things they would use to make the sounds

    Inside the sound effects room, you could push a button and record your sound effects and then they play back what you recorded with the cartoon. (much like they do with the Ariel voice thing at DCA)






    I loved this old pair of ears!


    Davey Crocket wall






    Very fun and not terribly hard game of the knowledge of Disney music.
    It even comes with a "speed round"!!

    There were some nice pieces of art that were supposed to be representing the music of the attractions but Melonballer and I both feel that this part of the exhibit was lacking. They could have done so much better than just to have some art to represent the awesome music that was created for our favorite attractions.
    I believe that one reason that the 50th FW show was loved by so many, was because it highlighted the music and evoked emotions and memories about the attractions that we love so much!

    Enchanted Tiki Room

    POTC

    Haunted Mansion

    It's A Small World

    And what would a Disney exhibit be without merchandise??!




    Well... That's all I got! haha
    I hope you enjoyed this Disney exhibit as we did! I would recommend it to anyone living in or coming to the area.



    I need to thank MasterGracey for his "thread format" that I stole (haha), and also for his classes at the "Master Gracey School of Ninja Secret Photography" where I was trained! hahahaa

    Thanks for sharing that! I may just have to make the trip! I didn't think it was going to last that long! Oh, and I like the grey mickey mouse club t-shirt!

    Yeah, they had some cool t-shirts there, WAY over priced though, I liked one soooo much. It had Mickey slamming a guitar down. I should have got a picture of it... but they didn't have my size so I was mad... but it was $60!! Do they think they are Vault 28 or something?!

    My wife was cleaning out some boxes we had stored thsi past week when we were working on our babies room and found a bunch of 45's and other vinyl records from Disney. Looks like you all had a good time. I wish I could see that Louis Armstrong record in the one photo. Thanks for posting them.

    Thanks for the great update! Now I know what to expect when I go and what to allow more time for if I bring my kids!! I know they will both love the sound effects stuff and I will have fun with the trivia (although thanks to Melon I know that there are HS Musical questions so I might need the daughter's help with that part!).

    Hey - I think there is enough interest that there ought to be a Micechat NW Invasion!! Come on guys, what do you say?
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    I'm all for it. I was thinking a month or so back that it would be neat to try to have a meet at Silverwood this summer. I know I'll be really busy through the rest of this year, but next is wide open.

    Great pics but where is a pic of you two?

    That looks like a cool exhibit!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    You took a picture of me? When did that happen? Obviously my spidey-sense faield me. As far as a "where's Melonballer" game, lets just say keep your eyes open in the Disneyland Forum for that. I am still undecided, but its likely to happen.
