I hope that everything works out and you get your apartments rented nice and quick.

I loved your report from the Tiki Room event. I think I would have struggled with the menu between being a fuzzy eater and my freak allergy to bananas. It was strange to hear One Little Spark at Disneyland.

I'd like to fine a curtain to cover the front doors as they have clear glass windows on the top half. Icouldn't find any at Anna's the other day so I'll try Lowe's again. We're almost all done !

I just need to run the credit reports when I get home, but I think at least one couple is somewhat of a "yes". Although until I put their deposit in the bank, I won't count on anything!
have you tried Bed Bath and Beyond for the curtain's... I know I saw them in ours..

What an amazing event! While the Tiki room isn't my favorite as an attraction, learning about all that history would have had me riveted! I loved the picture of the computers, it's amazing how far they've come with engineering/electronics. And oh my goodness the concert. My computer is making me mad so have to come back and listen but what a treat!

Thanks so much for sharing

And on top of all the pictures, you posted videos as well. O.M.G.

I am in heaven!!
Been sitting here for the last little while just downloading and buffering and listening. Those are great snippets into the night that you've shared and it was such a pleasure to even get this little glimpse into such a special event and moment. How fantastic to be able to see and HEAR Richard Sherman play all those great historic Disney songs.

Thank you so much. I'm so overawed by your generosity to tape it and share.
I'm just glad that after all these years of you prodding me that I could come through! Now I have these memories captured for myself too!

Thanks, I'm hoping maybe this week, we'll have to see. Fran doesn't like to move quickly on anything.

There were a lot of people who struggled with the menu, it seems that Hawaiian inspired food is an acquired taste. We even split a corn dog from the Little Red Wagon after the show, there just wasn't a lot of filling food there.

It was so much fun. I was talking with ACDSNY and PIO on the Fogies thread on the way home, just bouncing off the walls with excitement!

I'm not sure why the tracks are taking so long to buffer, but they're really neat to listen to!

My favorite part was when he was describing the early presentations of the Tiki Room and everyone said, "That's great Walt, but what the he** is it?"

Oh how amazing that Richard Sherman was there to perform for you guys! And even better, that you got some video from it. Thanks so much for sharing. Dan really enjoyed seeing some of these videos too!

Oh my gosh, what a fabulous event! Sorry I'm so behind.

The Tiki Room is one of my all time favorites in fact I've been known to watch it alone; happily at that.

My phone won't allow me to play any of the clips but I'll do that when I'm at the Mac.

The menu looks great, authentic. I bet it was fun for the chef to make different items too.

I can't believe you got to hear him live again! You are truly blessed when it comes to all things Disney.

I love the clips with Richard Sherman, thanks for sharing them with us.

I'd love to see how the technology has changed over the years. My dad use to get to tour the DL computer areas about twenty years ago and they were massive back them.

I have that same problem with my phone. I could never play podsnel's videos and I guess it was because I kept trying to access them from my phone.

They say that they can't change the DL Tiki Room because the technology of the time is "built into the attraction" or so I've heard. I wonder if they still use all those giant computers or if they have smallered them down over the years.

What a great experience! I love that you got to see and hear such an in-depth history on one of the attractions that Walt really had a major hand in creating.

I also love the inclusion of the Imagineers and espeically Maggie Elliott...it's inspiring to see someone who was such an early pioneer in a field that even today is so heavily male dominated.
