Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast opened ten years ago, on 8 April 2006. Continue reading “Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast turns ten!”
When The Legend of the Lion King opened in 2004, statues of wild animals wearing clothes and behaving like people were placed at the entrance of Discoveryland, pointing to Videopolis where the show was playing.
Inside the restaurant part of Videpolis, more statues where placed which depicted animals carrying their meal order or eating it from a table.
The statues remained for more than a year before finally being removed with the exception of the main logo.
On May the 4th (be with you) 2005 I was wondering through Discoveryland when I suddenly stumbled upon a maintenance Cast Member apparently making a drawing. I asked what he was doing, so he showed me his sketch of Orbitron – Machines Volantes and Space Mountain: Mission 2.
It turned out he loved making sketches of attractions in the park during his break.
After the re-opening of the Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland and Frontierland photo albums, have now all the entire Discoveryland albums returned with photos of all its attractions, restaurants and shops. Discover them now!
