    Technically i never used it, there's just one in my signature. And Coastierox only used 2, but there's 2 in his signature. So really between the two of us, it was only used twice. And since there's two of us, that's an average of one per person. Since our posts were about 4 hours apart, that left an entire 2 hours for each smiley to sink in and find its territory in cyberspace, and since this IS (as a matter of fact) cyber space, who cares how much one particular smiley is used??!?!?!?!! GAH! Stop picking!

    The tempo is slowed down and the key/tune is slurred a bit, but it really is the Small World song

    And to redeem myself for getting off topic (sorry!) DYK that in the queue (sp?) for Dinosaur, there are pipes all over the place, but there's a red one and a yellow one with the chemical formulas for Ketchup and Mustard on them. (There might have been a white mayo one, but i'm not sure.)

    Also there's a yellow pipe labeled "Limon citron," which you can translate as either the alcoholic beverage, or Latin for "lemon."

    DYK that in the MK Haunted Mansion, the stretching room's ceiling goes up, but in Disneyland the stretching room floor goes down, because it's really an elevator so the walkway to the loading area can go under the train tracks. Since the Magic Kingdom HM isn't near the train tracks, it isn't necessary to go down, so the ceiling just goes up.

    DYK, that in the original Journey Into Imagination, the scene where you first meet Dreamfinder and Figment, involved an elaborate carousel-like mechanism. It was officially known as "the turntable", but it bore more resemblance to the way Carousel of Progress works. The vehicles remained on the track at all times, while the "carousel" or "turntable" rode just above. Cantilevered sections formed walls on the sides of each "pie section". Unlike Carousel of Progress, whose walls are--well, just walls--Imagination's were actually closet-sized equipment rooms. Also unlike COP, the center section travelled along with the "pie sections", each with its own Dreamfinder/Figment scene (5 in all, operating simultaneously). Because the animatronics were along for the ride, the show equipment needed to drive them had to be too--thus the equipment rooms.

    Turning clockwise, the left wall of a "pie section" would appear first. The vehicles would follow in, and the right-hand wall would follow behind them. At the end of this 4-5 minute scene, the vehicles would leave in much the same way.



    Because the animatronics, projectors, and other equipment rode along, and because it had to be timed very precisely to allow "acceptance" of the vehicles, the turntable was surprisingly complex and trouble-prone. Many mechanical elements of the ride had to be re-designed or simply abandoned (including the moving walkway at unload) to solve the daunting timing issues.

    The whole mechanism rode on railroad wheels, on railroad tracks (below the floor), much as Carousel of Progress does.



    The turntable mechanism was so immense, it comprised approximately one-third of the entire ride space! With the (pttthpt!) "rehab" to the ride, the Turntable was eliminated, and most of the space it occupied is now used by the queue and Image Works.



    The drawing above shows a "speculated" view of the new layout, overlayed onto a drawing of the original layout.

    And in answer to your questions, yes, I'm a total geek sometimes. Yes, they're my drawings ("please excuse the crudity of the drawings; I didn't have time to draw them to scale or to paint them"). And no, I didn't do them specifically for this thread.

    LOL I'm glad you caught that. It's a running joke with me, for my own amusement more than anything else, but it's fun when other people catch it.
