  • I can't believe I missed it!

    Please Show the MM Disney 2 hour special again as a rerun! Season 12 episode 60
  • Technology progress at its best!

    Amazing episode, everything you wanted to know and didn\'t know you wanted to know about Disney World, it is trully a Engineering Marvel and Disney was a visionary with an amazing legacy!!!

    His death instead of stopping his work became a reason to make bigger, better, brighter and impossible things to come alive; he was the force behind the reason and the spirit behind the impossible.

    Yes, Mickey was the begining (never underestimate the mouse) but his vision is the curse. For everything said and done they have much much more up their sleave and I can\'t wait to see it!moreless
  • This was a great episode, not only because I live 4 miles from Disney World, but because it reveals a lot of the behind the scenes workings of the parks that one would not know otherwise.moreless

    This was a great episode, not only because I live 4 miles from Disney World, but because it reveals a lot of the behind the scenes workings of the parks that one would not know otherwise.

    The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM Studios, and the Animal Kingdom form Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, one of the greatest attractions in the world. This episode reveals the planning, construction, and workings of the parks. From animatronics to Walt Disney, this is truly a "magical" episode.

    My favorite part was the part about the fireworks at Epcot because during that segment, I could actually hear Epcot's fireworks go off.moreless
