Hi....A friend of mine that is an Architect in Orlando and works partime at Disney , gave me a tour yesturday to a ''Walt Disney Imagineering'' facilities, believe me it was awsome . The Dioramas and Models of existng attracions were incredible, I felt I was at a KB Toys for grown -ups. They were working with future attractions dioramas and models. I did not have permission to photograph any of the models , but my friend will give me photos of models and dioramas he has worked , so I will try to photograph them and post , he gave me permission to do so...Barbo

Miguel,

That'll be cool! I'm a huge Disney fan as well. They were very popular whenever they came to our engineering school for recruiting. We all dreamed about working with them.

Thanks,

Very cool. The driver looks like Martin Milner from the old "Route 66" series.

Hi...I did go to the MGM Theme Park today and I was amazed with the Disney's Models , I am posting some photos , I guess some of you already have been there ,but this is for the benefit of those that have not . Today is very important for me, my son's first day at Magic Kingdom (Disney World) as Chef .I was able to enter with him at Disney University for trainng , and believe me it is incredible , perhaps one day I can enter behind the scenes of scale model special effects or have our first Disney Scale Model Event........ I have always dreamed the Magic................Have fun........Barbo http://s123.photobucket.com/albums/o295/mb4985/003_3-1.jpg
