^I think Spaceship Earth would be better as "Spaceship Yeti Ball."

Did my donkey title just change???

Seriously though, it does looks so much better without that crazy thing.

As for the change:

I've always liked Spaceship Earth, but I always liked how they changed it, and gave it a new spin every so often. It's been so long since they did that with the 1994 refurb, so I'm excited to hear that Siemens has some new ideas for the ride with Disney.

And like everyone says, this sounds like it's going to give the ride a Horizons feel to it, which makes this sound all the more intriguing. I miss Horizons so much, even though I enjoy MS as well, and anything that reminds me of it is welcome.

As for videos of SE's old incarnations, the incomparable Martin Smith has some good footage, which can be found on this site: http://www.geoffreynease.com/news.php

Gary Sinise to be in Epcot's Candlelight Processional

Postby gonecrzyNSC » Mon Jun 25, 2007 11:22 am

I just saw on intercot.com where Disney has announced the line up for this year's Candlelight Processional. I thought Wes would be excited to know that Gary Sinise is scheduled to narrate again this year Dec 23-25. ;)

Gary Sinise typically does the dates right around Christmas. I even witnessed the awesomeness myself in 2001.

Always wondered why he did those dates. Is his family based around Orlando?

I met Gary Sinise last year at the Candlelight Processional. I was singing in the choir and had a chance to talk to him backstage. He is a really nice guy and it looks like he is doing it every year. I think he told me he missed only 2005 or so.

I just read somewhere that he enjoys spending Christmas in Orlando with his family and has for the last 5-6 years, so maybe the Candlelight Processional is just a plus.

Yeah, he's here every year. I've seen a few readers there.

Robby Benson was very good, and funny. Edward James Olmos was very good as well. The great JC (Jim Caviezel or however the hell you spell his name) was TERRIBLE.
