    What a generous offer! Makes me wish I was flying United!

    There are many stories about how Leota’s wedding ring ended up in the cement outside of the haunted mansion, but the truth is, that is really is not a ring at all, but the trimmed off end of a metal post that was once used in the area and could not be completely removed.

    I've started my 15 day countdown with A Disney Movie A Day. Last night I watched Newsies, today I was going to pop in Sleeping Beauty but Hercules was on ABC Family so I counted that instead. Will do Sleeping tomorrow night, but any suggestions for Tuesday's selection? I have most classics from the 90's and some Pixar, and most animated films from the 60's and 70's.

    This is a good one. I love that tree. I bought a ceramic replica for my Mom in 1999 and it got broken by my daughter. Time to look at eBay

    Thanks so much for this Imalismom (Gale)! This is the first thread I come check out each morning. My friend (and coworker) is coming to the meet too (she's a Disney nut, but not very active on Intercot) loves them too!

    Hey, I have two field trips I'm on for the next two days for school (going to Galveston for Environmental Science), so will do the count down, but later in the afternoon for the next two days...

    But to tide you over until I get back here to do the next countdown....

    Countdown Trivia of the day:
    Fantasmic! is canceled more often than any other show in Orlando. Ever wonder why? Well... The large mountain raising up from the stage is made of metal. There are 1.9 million gallons of water in the moat that surrounding the stage, the bench-style seats guest sit in are made of metal, and well, Florida is the "Lighting Capital of the World"... This should explain why….

    I thought they only appeared during the Flower and Garden festival - are they there all the time now? What fun! And no, I can't find all of them....
