The Color Companion has a list of photo credits near the front of the book. If the photo on page 54 was taken by a member of the Disney fan photo community, the photographer's name and page number should appear in the list.

Share and Enjoy!

I just have to comment about Horizons.

From the day it opened I always considered it to be Walt's Carrousel of Progress 2.0. (The actual updates to CoP have only been dot releases. ;-) Once you get past the Jules Verne and the Shuttle Launch--you then get to see what I always thought was the same family as in CoP. Even though Walt was long gone by then, it didn't matter--it was as if he were still there, still a driving influence on his parks.

So, for me, to tear that down was wrong.

My favorite part of Mission Space is the interactive team game at the end. The ride itself is just Mission to Mars 2.0. Big improvement on the inflatable seat cushion effect, but that's the best I can say for it.

While I agree I do miss Horizons, Mission space is still a great ride. Just because you're too much of a wimp for Mission space does not make it bad.

Even though I know the podcast crew is a bunch of Mission: Space-haters :) , I was surprised to hear Matt's opinion that no one would have M:S in their top 20 WDW attractions. I know M:S is my 2nd favorite Epcot attraction (after Soarin), and easily in my WDW top 20.

But don't take my word for it--look at the ratings on Touringplans.com. It gives M:S 4 stars. Only 10 other attractions in the 4 theme parks have higher ratings than that. So going by the digital version of "The Good Book," M:S is tied for 11th among all WDW attractions.

Having said that, I do sympathize with those who are sorry Horizons is gone. I wish Disney would quit removing old attractions in order to put in new ones. For example, I wish they could have kept Timekeeper and found another location for Laugh Floor, kept Millionaire and found another location for Toy Story Mania, etc.

"Mostly Harmless." Please tell me that was an intentional Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy reference!!

For the question about color companion book...I was there for that research trip one person hired by bob took most of the pics and had people fill out release papers...however because the pics were taken in a public place then anyone can be photographed at any time.
Its always fun to see yourself in pics! :-)
