Dr. Ravenscroft is there right now. I'm sure once he comes back, he'll have a trip report (probably with links to some pictures).

I might at some point. Have to start writing I guess. If I had a laptop available while I was out there I could have done it with a fresh mind. Now I have to go back and remember things....

At some point?! Now that's just not fair for those of us who couldn't go. At least post a couple of pictures and tell us if it was great or not!

Relax, no need for anyone to get impatient. Although Fantasmic show pics would be great in a separate topic...

Holy smokes, doctor! That there's quite a lot of photos. I'd be glad just to see a couple...I have a bit of extra time being in the unemployed world. So was it what you expected and did you buy any souvenirs?

First I would like to say sorry to hear about the unemployed status, I hope things pickup for you very soon.

As for the photos, i was editing last night and just reached the photos from this event. I should have them ready to start posting next week.....I hope.

I don't know if there is a separate thread for the pics/videos of this event but I stumbled on this in YouTube and figured others would like to see it.

If there was a separate thread for the pictures I never saw it. Looks like Doc was going to share some photos but he hasn't yet :(
Cool video find though NaCler!
