I stumbled onto a clip on YouTube of Rosie O'Donnell doing a behind the scenes at Imagineering. Eddie Sotto is featured as well as a young and old version of Rick Rothschild (the beard is still there, but modified and the long hair gets cut). It is a good clip of nearly 7 minutes and is very well done. It is a couple of years old, but still great. It includes info about where ideas come from and some great behind the scenes of how some attractions work.

This link should be good. Enjoy.

He's a bit more intense then i imagined.. Hmm, funny how you get an idea of a person in your head.

Anywho, isn't there supposed to be a new Eddie article soon?

And Holly - need an assistant yet?? Smile

I wondered where that had come from. I figured it was part of some kind of special and not just an inside thing. It would be great to see the whole thing if there is more.
Glad you enjoyed it, too.

Hmm... I have no way to dub it over to DVD... It was a good special, but that section you showed was definitely the best part because it was about the imagineering and "magic". I remember the other sections had some musical guests, and in general it was a lot of glitz and glamour about the resort as a whole...

lol... Rob... Not yet... Somehow I don't think that with my whole year of experience that they will let me have an assistant yet. Wink You might want to drive over to O-Town for the next TEA mixer, though... it could give you the opportunity to meet some people...

There's a Tea Mixer? Like Orange Mango Snapple type tea?

Oh, the TEA. Smile

Umm, hmm, when is that? Aren't I allowed to join TEA or IAAPA just because I worked for Disney once upon a time?

are you asking if youre not allowed to join? or if you are? As far as I know, anyone can join either organization, just as an individual membership. I know that TEA has student membership, not sure about IAAPA.

I'm not sure why i've hesitated to join then.. Well, i suppose primarily I never knew they had little get togethers - i thought just the major expos.

Is that how you got your start Holly?

You don't even have to join to go to the mixers the way I hear it! They just want people to come and hang out... Everyone I know who has been to the mixers says that it is a decent way to meet people. I haven't made sit over to the mixers yet... It seems like they ramped down in December and January, and are finally rolling again. But I do want to meet some more people outside of my little world...

I actually met my first industry contact in a different way, but most of the people I know who are in the industry are there because they knew someone... Networking is probably the best way to get a foot in the door...

Holly, looks like they had a mixer in Orlando back in Feb, but do you know of anything coming up soon? There is nothing on their calendar in the near future so I was just wondering.

They are having a backstage tour of Aquatica this week, but it requires RSVP... I won't be able to make it, and it might be full... I don't know when the next mixer after that is, but I think it is usually a monthly event.
