Some notes from the rat…

I know this is the “Other” Orlando blog, but I spent some time at Disney this weekend:

* Spaceship Earth sans wand is so beautiful, it brought a tear to my eye. God’s golf ball is back in its former glory!

* The Muppet Mobile Labs seems to be running demonstrations every day for the time being (even if Guest Services won’t admit it over the phone). If you haven’t already heard about this marvel of Imagineering, check out some video HERE:

The show starts from the gate near the Imagination bathrooms, and travels to Inventor Circle, Fountain of Nations, or Mission Space plaza. Ask a CM in the area when and where the show sets are, because it is not to be missed for anyone with the slightest affection for Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his long-suffering assistant Beaker. The performers behind the puppets do a first-rate job — Dave Goelz and Steve Whitmire should be proud. This is the kind of experiment that gives us faith in the future of Disney technology — now let’s get these guys a permanent gig in front of Muppetvision 4D!

* The beef bowls at the temporary food stand in front of the Japan pavillion are almost as greasy/salty/wonderful as the ones at Yoshinoya (Japan’s answer to McD’s). Be sure to ask for extra pickled ginger!
