So.... what should we do? Tell me your fave thing to do there so I can have fun and maybe discover something I haven't tried before!

Can't beat jamming to Rockin' either though!

You know? I've never seen Little Mermaid, or Beauty and the Beast! :lol: I did see Hunchback though. That was great. :yes:

Not a huge DHS fan. :redface:

For shame Tink! Both are excellent shows.

catrancher
16-05-2010, 09:36 PM
Aw Tink!

You do need to see both of them. They're both spectacular. My DW and I both love them.

And we don't even have any little kids anymore as an excuse! http://homepage.mac.com/twgower/.pictures/smilies/lmaof.gif

I wish they hadn't gotten rid of the "Hunchback of Notre Dame" show. We went to see that a number of years ago and ended up sitting right next to the runway halfway out in the audience. It just happened to be the spot where Clopin sings the final reprise of the "The Bells of Notre Dame". That kid was unbelievable! I still get chills just thinking about it! :thumbsup:

Tom (:macwave:... loves stage shows!)

"Swallowed a little mouse under the chair!" :lol:

Sorry, just the way you phrased that Mick, brought that old rhyme to mind.

I will get to them one day catrancher. :yes: We don't often go over, but will make the effort. We saw one of the last shows of Notre Dame and let me tell you, it was incredible. Very emotional for all involved. I don't know why I haven't seen the others, since we really enjoyed that one.

"Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen.

Pussy cat, pussy cat what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under the chair."

Ooops! When I said it through I realized it was "frightened" and not "swallowed!" :lol: At any rate, that's the old rhyme from childhood.

Keith, if you haven't been... the very best attraction is - 'Walt Disney: One Man's Dream'. :yes:
It is inspirational and poignant. Always brings a tear to my eye.
Also, if you have time, go to the Animation Academy and learn to draw a character. It's great fun and you don't need to have any particular skills to produce a great personal souvenir. :thumbsup:

foreverducky

This is something we've never done. Always mean to :shrug:
Do you have to sit through anything else before you go in to draw Diane?

It's at the end of The Magic of Disney Animation. The classes are about every half hour so the wait to go in depends how far through they are. It's well worth the wait though. Try going early in the day or last thing for fewer guests. You will love it! :yes:

Do you have to sit through Magic of disney Animation before you can draw? We have done this several times but never found the drawing room!

Hmm..not sure. We always see the attraction as I love it. :D The drawing room is tucked away almost next to the exit, after you have come out of MoDA. Just ask a CM. :thumbsup:

Nope you don't have to :) you just walk through the gift shop, out the back and you're just about at the academy. Classes tend to be on the hour and half hour and can fill up fast :D

Thanks so much, Mick. No hurry. Go fishing first. :thumbsup:

If it would be easier, I can give you someplace to upload it rather than cutting a DVD if you'd prefer.

Another fan of Hunchback here :) We saw the very last show (lucky thing too, as it was jammed to the rafters with mostly CM's). I cried from the first sound to the last. At the end they were tossing out huge decks of cards with the King of Hearts on them...to this day it's my single most treasured souvenir from the parks.

The video I have of the ending can only be described as blissfull chaos.

Let me know when you've got it in an uploadable state, Mick. Also, let me know how big it is. I think I've got a place in mind that you can upload it to if it'll fit.

Once you're ready and if it's not too big, I'll PM you the specifics on where to upload it to. :thumbsup:

Aww... too bad. Thanks anyway, Mick! :hug2:

The tail end was really the part I was hoping it would have. That final reprise of the "Bells of Notre Dame". Since I was sooooo close to the action on that one, that's the bit I was REALLY after.

But thanks for trying anyway. I really appreciate the effort! :thumbsup:
