Stories Behind the Scenes


General

From: Donald 17 MAY 99

While we were at Walt Disney World a few days ago, there was a character sighting with a lot of characters. We came into the courtyard in front of Main Street and saw Captain Hook having a fight with the fox from Pinnochio. While behind Captain Hook's back, my brother started saying "Tick-Tock Tick-Tock". Pinnochio, who was right next to Hook, tapped Hook on the shoulder and motioned to look behind him. Captain Hook chased him all over the courtyard. After that, we decided to interact with other characters around the park. We went over to the Queen of Hearts and asked if she ever lost at croquet. She made an "Off with his head!" gesture, which led to a chase over the courtyard. We then saw Mr. Smee joyfully skip over to Captain Hook, trying to tell him something. Hook ended up pointing off in the distance as if to say, "Hey, look!" and while Smee was trying to find what he was looking for. So, just for fun, if you are ever at a character greeting thing with several characters, not only will the characters interact with each other, they will interact with you! Only at Disney would the characters act their parts!

Disney Monorails

D. Williams 25 JUN 96

This is not a Hidden Mickey story, but rather, concerning the Monorail. While on a tour of the Yacht and Beach Club, a guy named Rix told he used to work on the Monorail when the park was first opened. He said it took him about four minutes to get from the Magic Kingdom to the Ticket and Transportation Center (TTC) which included picking up and dropping off people. However, he said the speed needed to be restricted because of Disney's Contemporary Resort. The vibration of the Monorail going through the resort caused bottles to fall of the counter at the bar.


Small World

From: Mark Scott 20 DEC 98

In 1989, I was in the Magic Kingdom with my brother (Rob), his then wife (Michelle), and her sister (Dawn). As we worked our way through the park we decided to ride It's a Small World. Shortly after we were off of the ride, and walking up the exit ramps, Dawn was holding her arm and saying that she thought it was broken. None of us saw what happened. Apparently, when the ride was ending, the conveyer belt, that had just started to take the boat to the unloading location, stopped so the people on the boat ahead of us could get off. Dawn reached out and grabbed one of the handrail poles that are close to the boat at that time. When the conveyer belt jerked the boat to the unloading location, it somehow broke her arm. The rest of us did not think that it could have possibly been broken, and the first aid department at Disney gave her an ice bag and a splint for her arm. The next day we went to the hospital and had her arm x-rayed. The arm was broken. So, the next time you hear one of those messages that says to "keep your arms and legs inside of the boat at all times", you may want to listen. They are warning you because they know the rides can be dangerous in ways that you can't even imagine.


Responsible Parenting?

From:Solomon Davidoff 02 APR 97

I am an ex amusement park employee (Ohio's Kings Island), who still enjoys going to parks. I was especially glad to finally visit Disney World, but had my visit marred by another guest. I was sitting in the audience at the Indiana Jones show, when they asked for audience participants. Of course, I rasied my hand. I wasn't chosen, but I know that's much more likely to happen. What bothered me, was that the woman next to me who was chosen jumped up and went to be in the show, leaving her kids behind. With no one else there. I hadn't been talking to her, but noticed that the three of them were alone. So she's up on stage running around, and her two small children are alone, frightened and at their wits end. Three times I had to deal with little upsets, and one other guest started to reprimand me about how my children were behaving. Just a quick note. If you're going to go to a theme park with your kids, an activity I fully endorse, please remember that you might have to miss out on a few things you might have enjoyed doing for their sakes. Today? I probably would have taken her kids to security. I mean, they were only three and four! I know that's not always the right answer, but what would be?

Disney Security

Main Street USA

From: anon 30 MAY 99

Here is a funny story. Security guards at the Magic Kingdom witnessed a guest kicking Cinderella's Castle. They made a note of it. Two weeks later Disney has a law suit in which the plaintif stated that she was struck on the foot by a brick which fell of the castle. Here's the funny part. There isn't one brick on that castle

From: Joseph St. Angelo 13 FEB 99

A very frightening event happened while I was walking around the World, one fine evening in June of 1996. The park, as it typically gets in the summer due to the late hours and parades, JAMS quite badly and quickly fills to capacity, or NEAR capacity. NEAR meaning...get out, go home, people are standing on my feet. The park throbbed in the early evening, so much so, Main Street was in danger of people literally being trampled to death. Main Street connects to Tomorrowland right at The Plaza Restaurant, on the right side of the block. As you turn the corner and pass the restaurant, you'll find the yellow dining al fresco chairs, (on the dock of the waterway), a bank of bathrooms, and the Tomorrowland Plaza Pavillion (through which you enter Tomorrowland itself). To the right of the bathrooms is a wall of pay-phones and a mystery entrance for the cast members to enter and exit. P.S., as the crowd became EXTREMELY jammed, and I might say, life-threateningly so, they let us file out through this mystery door. It takes you to an open area, directly behind Main Street. The area is humongous, and you realize that you're "in-back" of everything. What's to see there? There's a massive parking lot, maintenance vehicles, storage bins, cast members moving portable concession stands, and very little else. It's mostly stark, metallic shades against the backs of the buildings but little, "revealing" items. It just amazes you to see how big it is back there, and it's really cool to see behind Main Street. You exit through a large entrance in the corner of Main Street by Tony's Restaurant, and you're back to the beginning again. But that day, they were hoping people would leave...rather than stay and get squashed.

From:Cheryl Althouse 01 MAR 97

In the summer of 1987, my husband and I visited Walt Disney World for the first time without our children. We had just watched the afternoon parade and decided to do some shopping at the Emporium on Main Street. While purchasing some things, I got into a conversation with the cashier and asked her if her middle name was Ann. The reason being that a lot of people I meet with the first name of Cheryl have that middle name. She looked at me a bit strangely and said yes. When the purchase was over, she whispered to me that in my bag was something that no one can buy as a memento of being there. She had taken off her name tag and slipped it into the bag. I don't know how many people have one, but I have an official Disney World name tag with my name on it.


L. Borne 25 JAN 96

I worked on the 4th of July when the crowds were so large, that we actually allowed guests to exit by going around backstage down main street. In the middle cross road section of main street, large doors could be opened. Another set of doors are located at the horse stable near the exit. Guests were funneled out though the cross road gate and entered back by the stable. We erected large curtains so that no one could see the garages where the main street autos were parked.


From:James Robert Hearn 29 OCT 95

I was in the Magic Kingdom yesterday, and happened across a carved pumpkin judging contest that anyone could participate in. It was in the small courtyard by the Ice Cream Shop at the end of Main Street. Anyway, one of the pumpkins evidently fell off of the table, and was crushed. Around the carcass was a barricade, with a sign saying: "Please excuse our mess, this pumpkin is being refurbished for your future enjoyment." Does Disney miss anything??? I wish I had a camera....


L. Borne 25 JAN 96

Working at Disney I met some unusual people. My favorite 3 stories:

  1. One pregnant woman, going into labor, insisted she have the baby on the main stage in front of Cinderella's Castle.

  2. I had to ask a nice group of French women to put their shirts back on. It was a very hot day, and they were walking around topless.

  3. Two guys stole a ladies purse in the Magic Kingdom - very rare. Their exit - yes, via the monorail. The monorail got about 100 yards, when it stopped, and reversed back to the station. Security personnel were waiting.


anon 25 JAN 96

All of the offices on the upstairs of main street are real. The real offices only have windows looking out toward backstage. The walls of the actual offices are 3-4 feet away from the fake office windows. Once, when I was up talking with the Main Street Cast Member director, I noticed a clever conversation piece on his desk. It was a mouse trap baited with a dime, and a plastic Mickey was caught in it with his hand on the money. This was his way of protesting Eisner's policies.



Steve B 24 SEP 96

I can confirm that guests are sometimes allowed to cut behind the east side of Main Street. I was there in October '96. Although the parks were generally not too crowded due to low season throughout most of the week, Saturday still attracted a huge crowd. Saturday night was the only night of the week (at least in October) when the Magic Kingdom hosted fireworks and the SpectroMagic parade. Even in low season, the place was so crowded that I overheard somebody saying that new admissions had been cut off earlier in the day. I watched the fireworks from the north end of Main Street. I was at the area where you can turn east from the Street itself and sit at tables overlooking the water around the castle plaza and Tomorrowland was off to my right. After the fireworks, a Cast Member opened a door in that section of Main Street facing the castle. Guests were able to go through that door, along the service areas, then re-enter Main Street at Town Square. There was no attempt to disguise or dress up this service area. There were no giant curtains covering anything. I could see various parked cars and the very unthemed backs of buildings. Given the number of people crammed into the park, relatively few seemed to take this shortcut. Perhaps the loss of illusion is not worth escaping from several minutes of shoulder-to-shoulder crowds thronging toward the exit.


Cinderella's Castle

Gene Jackson 31 JAN 96

Several years ago, I had written Guest Relations concerning the "never occupied" apartment in Cinderella's Castle, which I wanted to see very much. Guest relations, gracious as always, explained that the apartment was now used for storage and security and could not be viewed. I have always wondered if that is true. In any event, Guest Relations did take me on a backstage tour, including the infamous tunnel level at the Magic Kingdom and all because I had the courage to "ask".


Haunted Mansion

REPORTED: Karen Chong 31 DEC 98

I have been to WDW almost every year for the last 26 years. (I'm 26 yrs. old) When I was younger, I was very scared of the Haunted Mansion. It took me a while to work up the courage to actually get on the ride. When I was about 8 yrs old, I finally had made the decision to do it. We were there during October...a very slow time for WDW. My parents took me to the Haunted Mansion first. (I'm sure they didn't want me to chicken out) We were the first(and only ones)in line, and I was boasting to them that I wasn't scared at all. I must have been louder than I thought because the cast members inside started HEAVILY rattling the doors. I'm sure the entire park heard my screams! In the end, my whole family was laughing so hard, we all enjoyed the ride.

From: Gary Barnes 21 JUL 96

Back around in 1991, I went through the Haunted Mansion in WDW. Just when you get into the moving vehicle, you go through a hallway with pictures and self-knocking door knockers before you get into the mansion. Right when you clear the hallway, the moving car swivels and you face a corner of the hallway. Now in all my years going to the parks, this was the first time it has ever happened. There was actually a knight in shining armor there just standing with a battle axe. You would think that is was a dummy, but it actually moved and ran out to grab you. Now if you're not expecting this, is scares the willies out of you. That only happened to me once.

Rivers of America

From: Joseph St. Angelo 13 FEB 99

I was in Disney circa '85, and they drained the entire Tom Sawyer lagoon. The boat is on tracks, which most people know, but what you don't know is that the lagoon itself is simply IMMENSE. Vans and trucks were in the lagoon, and looked like Matchbox cars out of their depth...literally. The boat was placed in the back, towards where the Seven Seas Lagoon, mobile light show floats are stored. You could see the boat as you went by on the train, across the bridge.


Space Mountain

REPORTED: R.A. Fraker 20 OCT 98

I rode Space mountain the first year it was open and it happened to break down on us as we were going up the countdown ramp. We had to ride through with the lights on. This was much scarier than with the lights off because of how low the beams appear to be. It would make you think twice about riding with you arms raised.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority

From: Joseph St. Angelo 13 FEB 99

Paging Mr. Morrow, Mr. Tom Morrow...someone's walking around the Tomorrowland Transportation Authority...ON FOOT!!! Yes ladies and gentlemen, I was riding on the classic WedWay People Mover (there's a sign of age...okay! I'm 23 but I've gone to Florida 25 times in my lifetime...sometimes twice a year, SO WHAT! Oooh, stress-breaker. Sorry.), known to you young folk as the Tomorrowland Transportation Authority, and we were on the straightaway to the Space Mountain Entrance. Somehow or the other, a tourist, (noting from his Bermuda shirt and shorts, and his obvious confusion to his surroundings), previously escaped from his moving car, and was walking inbetween the tracks. As you exit Space Mountain there is a cement island, between the northbound and southbound tracks, right before your car turns to pass in front of Space Mountain directly, and this fella was just hangin' around there, and jumping onto the track, back and forth...WALKING...looking for his hat, or whatever the heck else he was doing. Immediate thought that came to mind, (as unlikely as it seems) TERRORIST. HELLO?!!! Upon getting back to the station, my family and I informed the ride operators, who turned a whiter shade of pale. They ran to their monitors to double-check the man's location, and questioned us vigorously as to what exactly he was doing. We replied... "Ah he was just taking a stroll around the park."

From: Mark Matthews 09 JUL 95

Disney Security uses infa-red surveillance cameras in the dark areas of rides to ensure guest safety, and to make sure no one tries to get of the rides. One of the most requested security jobs is to watch the monitors of the WEDway People Mover because young couples, unknowingly, frequently provide Adult entertainment for the security personnel!

Update: David Moorhead 15 FEB 96

There are no "security personnel" watching the monitors at the WEDway. The only monitors are the ones you can see as you get on the ride, over on the right. The only person who can see these monitors is the load operator, who for the most part doesn't care what sort of trouble you get yourself into, so long as you are done by the time the ride is over. I only know one person, "Mike," who is even remotely interested in keeping tabs on those monitors. There are intrusion mats around the ride that set off an alarm if somebody gets out. That's all we care about.


Pirates of the Caribbean

From: Fish 18 APR 99

My band performed at Walt Disney World just last week and got to go back behind the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. It's really strange how they have spare props and plants lying around the backlot in a spot where if you just peer in through the open door you could see it! There were piles of crates, barrels and bird cages by the Pirates, along with a rather large collection of exotic plants, including a couple palm trees. On the Jungle Cruise side, they have a tiny little shack they use to store paint in. There is a small paint bench outside where you are supposed to test the paints. Among the shapes made by the cast members (Maybe Imagineers?) were a peace sign, a skull and crossbones, and a tri-circle Mickey Mouse (Would that be a Hidden Mickey?). We came out just before Spectromagic, so we got to have a little conversation with a couple Cast Members, one who was from our area! After the whole thing was done, I came back, taking my time, soaking everything in and trying to perhaps catch a peek at some of the behind-the-scenes Jungle Cruise stuff. Well, from the Jungle Cruise I heard a series of rather loud "CRACK!" noises, then a lady screaming. That was very unusual! I decided to go on the Jungle Cruise immediately after, and we got on a boat with a skipper who looked a bit shaken up. Well, she explained that she had just crashed her boat!

From:Michelle Habas 18 SEP 97

Back in 1976 my family went to WDW for the first time. While there we rode the Pirates of the Caribbean. Despite the warning, "No flash photography please," a man in the boat in front of ours would not stop taking flash pictures. The boats were stopped and two cast members came out with an extra pair of rubber boots. They made him get out of the boat and escorted him out of the attraction.

From: anon 12 JUL 95

Whilst working in Disneyland Paris (formerly EuroDisney), I heard many stories about guest 'activities' in the Magic Kingdom. One such story entailed a rather detailed description - which I will leave out for decency's sake, sorry folks this is a Disney page - concerning a couple who requested a boat to themselves in the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. This request was granted yet Cast Members became alarmed at noticing that the woman disappeared half way through the ride. Panic set in at thoughts of a guest wandering around in back stage areas, yet the hard workers were relieved and extremely amused to eventually locate the woman on her knees before the lucky chap. When the boat returned the Cast Members managed to keep a straight face at the request that the couple could do the attraction again, and on the TV monitors watched as the man disappeared and the woman had a great Disney experience!


From: anon 12 OCT 95

We were on Pirates and two guests in the boat ahead of us kept stopping the boat. Disney security using infrared cameras obviously saw them, so, when it came to part of the burning city, two "Cast Members" dressed as pirates came down on each side and lifted the two guests off the boat. They were led to an "exit" off set. The woman behind me said, "Wow, that was very real looking!"

From: Robert Niles 24 JAN 96

There is a camera in Pirates mounted opposite the skull and crossbones that allows you to see boats as they go down the waterfall. Every once in a while you'd see some wiseguy standing up, facing the rest of the boat, trying to take a picture -- never noticing the gaping chasm behind him that his boat was about to plunge into. And the people in the boat would be screaming at him to sit down, to no avail.

Of course, there are two points at the top of the waterfall where the tower operator can activate plates that extend into the flume, stopping a boat's progress. So we kept anyone from falling down the waterfall. But someone sitting in tower could clearly see the embarrassment (and fear) on those guests' faces once they figured out what could have happened.

From:anon 23 JAN 96

Two times in one week I caught couples in the Pirates monitors who had boats all to themselves and thought (incorrectly) that no one was watching. You can guess what happened next... (You name it and Cast Members have seen people in monitors doing it.) The most surprising thing about the first incident I witnessed was that by the time the couple appeared in the chase scene monitor (which offers an excellent view from the front of the boat by the way), three Cast Members from the Jungle Cruise had heard what was happening and run over to watch. Remember, this is no more than six minutes into the ride! Then, by the time I made it out of tower and down to the parade route for my crosswalk duty less than ten minutes later, several Haunted Mansion hosts were asking me about the incident. And after the parade, as I rode the cast bus back to my car in the Center parking lot, I overheard two Space Mountain hosts talking about what they'd heard had happened at Pirates that afternoon. Forget TV. Forget the Internet. The fastest medium of communication in the world is telling a prurient story to a Disney Cast Member.


Splash Mountain

From:Matt Steninger 01 JUL 98

While riding Splash Mountain last year, my log was behind another carrying a group of 15-16 year olds(i'm 20). They decided it would be fun to dip into the water and slpash each other (right after Brer-Frog's ascension in the beginning). The logs stopped and a friendly cast-member voice announced "Please remain seated an keep your hands and arms inside the cars at all times." They sheepishly settled down and looked straight forward barely even moving. I turned around to see a camera hidden in the rocks directly behind us!

From:Jennifer Bell 04 OCT 97

Some people are just really weird. My parents took my husband and I to WDW for our one year anniversary. It was in September (rain season). We waited in line for about 45 mins. as we watched storm clouds approach. Being Florida babies, we figured it would dump then clear up. Well the cast members kept walking around checking the line, etc. Right after we got into our car, they decided to close the ride. We were informed that we were to be the last car. Thunder and lightning started to flash as we went through the ride. We didn't realize how bad the storm was until we got to the Flume part. We started uphill, and as we looked over the edge the whole car full of people went "oh..my..." then we went falling in the pouring rain. As we went to turn the corner at the bottom of the hill going towards the loading zone the lady in our car decided she didn't want to get wet, so she opened her umbrella. (we were in a 'fake' mountain, in a lightning storm...did she not know this?) All of a sudden a "voice" out of nowhere said "we can not continue the ride until you close your umbrella miss." The ride stopped and we were getting poured on. She finally realized the were talking to her and she closed the umbrella and the ride kept going. We laughed hysterically at the sign outside the ride that read: "caution: you may get wet on this ride" Hours later we were still wringing out our clothes.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

From: Robert & DeLores Stone 24 NOV 96

Here is a true story of sorts. I worked at Magic Kingdom attractions west in maintenance. A fellow in our shop was attempting to retrieve some sunglasses that a guest had dropped on Big Thunder. This is a no-no while the ride is in operation. A car hit him in the chest knocking him about 14 feet down to the next set of tracks. A car was coming straight for him. Quick action by another maintenance person saved his life. The other Cast Member jumped down to the lower level and pulled him away before the eyes of some very surprised guests. The rescuer received accolades and I believe an all expense paid cruise. Working maintenance around a lot of rapidly moving objects can be very dangerous.

From: Tracy Tartaglia 03 SEP 96

We waited in line for over 45 mins on Big Thunder Mountain, we got to the top of the ramp right before you board the trains and we were told that we had to exit the ride that it was being closed for the day. It seemed to be runnning fine except for the fact that an alligator had climbed on the tracks and animal control had to come and remove it!!! What a bummer. The good news is that the next time we rode Thunder Mountain we waited in line for 30 mins but they stopped letting people in line after us because of a parade. By the time we got off the parade was coming and they were not letting anyone cross over the entrance (this was before splash mountain was designed) We ended up riding it 5 more times without waiting in line. The only other people were the people who rode with us on the orginal ride.

From: Robert Niles 24 JAN 96

One time I was in the Big Thunder Mountain tower when we had to shut the ride down because we saw a kid in a monitor jumping out of his train as it rumbled up "A" lift. We evacuated, and when a host asked the kid why he jumped out, the kid said, "I changed my mind about riding." - Don't waste too much time working on that Nobel Prize acceptance speech, kid.

Adventureland

From: Joseph St. Angelo 13 FEB 99

Gene Kelley might have been "Singin' in the Rain," but one little girl certainly wasn't. Circa 1990, a friend of the family brought his wife and little girl to the Magic Kingdom one night. The weather had it in for them, and the sky opened up. It poured...so they decided to hole up in the El Pirata y el Perico Restaurante in Adventureland. It neared time for the park to close, but the two parents refused to get their little one soaked in the rain. So they waited...In short order, Disney "Suits" approached them, beseeching them to vacate their seats immediately. The man refused to leave, until it stopped raining. The Suits pressed...but the man and his wife would not leave. Finally they reached a compromise, and the man insisted he be given transport to the main gate...and Disney reluctantly obliged, accomodating his demands. They were ushered out through several "back entrances" winding up at Main Street where they could depart the park. And the rain poured on...


Utilidors & Keys to the Kingdom and Backstage Magic

From: S Dahlem 17 DEC 95

I always hated when they would bring a group of guests into the tunnels because they would always bring them by the Dressing rooms and the "ZOO." And there, for all to see, is Cinderella in her bloomers smoking a cigerette on her break and about 30 Mickey heads on a rack. Parts of heads and bodies all over the place. It really spoils the magic.

From: Joseph St. Angelo 13 FEB 99

I took the "Underground" tour of the Magic Kingdom, disappearing into the store to the right of

The Legend of the Lion King. (It used to be the Mad Hatter's Hat Shoppe, when I was there). So we walk down this small flight of stairs and emerge in a tunnel...beneath the park. To the right of us, the tunnel goes DOWN...WAY DOWN. Folks...it looks like a matte painting, it goes on forever, no exaggeration. Who knows how big it truly is down there! We walked along, and I saw some of the characters/people half out of costume. Golf-cart maintenance vehicles dashing to and fro...maps of the underground, etc. Contrary to what one Disney clerk told me, long ago, the underground is NOT, greasy and smelly and tiny...rather...it looks like something out of the 60's sci-fi television series the Prisoner, (look to the last episode, Fall Out.) Wubba-wubba indeed. It's fascinating...in an eerie kind of way. ΚΚΚ The tunnel files out to the back of Fantasyland, where buses are moving around. We pass a group of "Suits" who resemble the Men in Black. And they're lounging about, talking, etc. As the tour passes, they stop everything they're doing, and watch us...smiling. I turn around...and they're still there. So I figure they find us as some sort of amusement, "Oooh, another stupid group of TOURISTS." I look back and they're still smiling...I looked back, once more...and they're still there, shades and all, looking ever-daunting, and now, not smiling as much. Note to Tour Groups, keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times, and don't...DON'T TICK OFF the men in the black shades.

From: Joseph St. Angelo 13 FEB 99

Circa 1994, I broke down and took the Disney "Underground Tour" where they show you the hidden world beneath Main Street...only after HOURS of viewing the above-ground attractions, on a blisteringly hot five-hour walking tour. One question one of my group asked, "Is this park run on nuclear power?" And the tour guide denied it flatly. Dismissing the man, (unwisely) as a lost, country bumpkin, she was attacked by the question yet again by several more people along the way. She got very flustered, but stuck to her story and insisted that the park is run on hydro-electric power...running water. Seems odd to me...wouldn't you need something greater than Niagra Falls to generate that kind of power? Didn't their own Universe of Energy state, once upon a lifetime ago, that hydro-electric power is not a viable enough resource...yet, because it could not generate sufficient enough power for large areas? In the flatlands, swamp, and marshy areas of Florida, though, I found it a little unusual to have a massive RUNNING WATER outlet as what she described. Unless they have some hidden ocean that I was not aware of.


Magic Music Days

Disney Magic Music Days

From: Amanda 30 JUN 99

My band was invited to play at Disney every Christmas. The way we got in was the brown round door found next to Pirates of the Carribean. The door isn't locked. There are paths and one leads backstage to dressing rooms and the floats. You can also see the back of Splash Mountain. When we were dressing for the parade we were with all the of people dressing for the floats.

From: Karen Koy 16 APR 99

In the spring of 96 my high school music program went to the complex for Magic Music Days. Our jazz band played in the Starlight Cafe in Future World. We were taken down through the tunnels (even the custodians smiled at us!), tuned up in a small room, and were escorted to the stage. The stage was below the restaraunt's main level. It was a small, dark cylidrical room. We had no idea what was going to happen. The floor jerked and we started to go up! We played an intro vamp all the way up. (The room paused for a minute, and later we found out that there had been a small fire in the control room.) Needless to say, both we and our audience were quite thrilled by the whole thing. A couple visiting the park even framed a picture they took of us and sent it to the school!

From: Bridget Vaughan 08 JAN 96

I was a member of a Marching Band and we were always invited to Disney Magic Music Days...While behind the scenes we were told that if we took pictures they would take our film and kick us out...it was like a mini-mob operation...I didn't fully understand at the time why we were basically threatened with our lives. Needless to say a friend of mine snuck away with a couple snapshots...they are kinda crooked and sideways...but no juicy stuff..bummer eh?
