    Has anyone done this at DHS?

    If so, what was it like? Did you ask questions or did the Imagineer just talk in general terms?
    Is the Bamboo room nice? :wiggle:

    :yes: I'd love to do it but as it's so expensive I'd need to know if it's worth it first.

    We didn't do the formal one, but did an informal one at JIKO one time. We love to sit at The Cooking Place when we are there. One time we went in and were seated on the left end of the counter next to a young fellow by himself. Turns out he was an imagineer from DL and was at WDW to help with the re-engineering of the Haunted Mansion. Had a wonderful meal while chatting with him. The waiter was pouring lots of wines for him to try and every time he poured one for the imagineer he poured the same one for Donna and I.

    oh now that's incredibly cool :yes:

    Haunted mansion is still my favourite ride, I'd love to talk to someone involved in the imagineering side of that. I bet there's so much I don't notice as I go round it

    No, I sure haven't. I've read some reviews on Mousesavers but that's it.

    this sounds really interesting...

    I do have to say I would probably be too shy or would forget about everything I wanted to ask....
