A collection of images and other items from Disneyland, theme parks and other amusement parks. Also look for images and items I find interesting, amusing or both.
I've never seen this before, these aren't real people, are they?
The animatronics DO look pretty realistic here... I wonder if the faces were cast from real people rather than sculpted?
I remember walking past this (big glass wall out of the picture on the right) and watching the standing guy give an animatronics lecture. It was neat the first time, but dull anytime after. It really looked a lot better in color. There was a lot of "mission control-like" sound effects that we have all heard in movies, etc, so nothing new. It was more like an tribute to the past, rather than "tomorrow"-land (even then when it was new).
I used to break out in 10 year old mecho-lust whenever I saw this set. I had no idea what any of those consoles did, I just knew I had to have one, even if it only made toast.
Always loved seeing this scene before "boarding." The park needs more audio-animatronic "human" performers!
