Behind the Scenes at Disney World

Chuck and Whalechaser are in Florida now, and have just completed their "behind the scenes" tours with fellow Elderhostelers. Chuck posted a really fascinating series of descriptive accounts of each tour which can be found here. (I've linked you to day 4. After you read about that one, just follow his links to days one, two, and three.)

He loves taking pictures - remember I told you about how when we were at breakfast and every time I looked up, it seemed, someone was pointing a camera at my face? - and sounded a little frustrated by the fact that no picture-taking was allowed behind the scenes, but he more than makes up for the lack of photos by his wonderful details of each tour. (And still, you will notice, he manages to include a photo or two!)

If you've ever wondered what goes on behind (and under) the scenes at one of those large theme parks, spend a few minutes wandering through Chuck's stories. I think you'll find them quite interesting!

THAT was fascinating! I often wondered what went on behind the scenes when we were in Disneyland last summer. The whole barcode thing on the costumes is amazing.

One of the things I love about your blog Goldenrod is the ability you have to take your readers on a journey, it is fascinating.
