Man this makes me feel old! Remember going with the family shortly after it opened. Also remember waiting a long time for Spaceship Earth. At the part where the ride cars turn backwards and go downhill, there were staff members physically turning the cars. Guess there was some glitch in the omnimover system at the time.

The 30th tag on the end of Illuminations was phenomenal! It was interesting seeing the line for the Limited edition merchandise reaching from MouseGears almost to the World Showcase. I ended up getting some of the goods but wasn't willing to shell out $125 for the limited edition pin.
