‘Soarin’ Over California’ needs to be brought back to DCA and stay there.
Fits perfectly, and it’s the better of the two films.

I agree. But what really needs to happen is to make an updated California version. The skylines of San Diego and Los Angeles and San Francisco have all changed dramatically in the past 25 years, for example.

Time to redo this concept for both coasts; an updated California version for DCA and a more genuine World version for Epcot. That is, if they're really as dedicated to it as they say they are. Or is Josh just using more of his cheap words again with his winning smile? 🤔

More photos I snapped from the Animatronics display.

Some gems for sure.

‘Bubbles’ from what I am assuming was one of the two figures located at Disneyland’s version of ‘Country Bear Jameboree’.

Control rack underneath the above figure of Bubbles…
Each cylinder controls one movement, labeled above in a numbered sequence.
Having working with animatronic figures, this was cool to see up close.

Pneumatic hand mechs from the late 1980s / early 1990s
Would love to know if these were used for specific figures or if these are just working test models.

Shedding a tear here….
On the left is what is left of WDW’s Auctioneer Pirate from PoTC.
On the right is a more modern head mech prototype built for Shanghai’s Davy Jones in the same Attraction.

great pics and coverage, do you by any chance have one of the puffin from maelstrom? I saw it in one of the prior photos kind of off to the side. just wondered if you had one of that display on its own.
