Yeah, it's nice, but I got all excited, thinking it was a tree in Africa or New Gineau or something........it's Disneyworld, where the laughs are as plastic as the scenery, and a cheeseburger is $12.50(on the low end). Don't get me wrong, I love Disney, but I was thoroughly disgusted by how much of cash funnel that place has become.

There's already a whole other thread for your Disney-bashing pleasure.

I completely understand that. My post was intended for the post two before me. I was trying to get your thread back on its original track.

Aloha!
I remember seeing this on the Travel Channel at least twice a month. It's pretty amazing. And technically it's in Africa. But also Asia and whatever other lands they show there. I'm not 100% sure. I'm more of a Magic Kingdom and Epcot kinda guy.

-Cheers!

Sorry some backwoods carver didn't spend the last half of his life doing this, but it's still amazing on two counts;

1. As drop-dead beeeutiful sculpture

and

2. The fact that some pretty imaginative folks drew it up, planned that sucka out to the last bootlace, did it right, and got the tightwad rats driving black BMWs at DisneyIncCorp to pick up the check.

Oh, it's beautiful, I'll give it that, but I'm just a bit jaded after working for Disney for 5 years in the 90s.

Come to think of it, I watched the building of that tree on the History Channel, but missed the finished product. As stated above, there's a recycled oil derrik as part of the infrastructure. Fantastic feat of engineering, as expected from the Imagineers. I can't believe that after 5 years at Disneyland and on the travelling shows, I never went to Disney World. I think I OD'ed on Uncle Walt, man.

I think I've spent enough time for the both of us. I love Disney. I know this will probaby recieve tons of responses as to why Disney is so bad, but I don't care. Heck, I've been wanting to work in the parks for a while.

Anywho, just because it's not real wood doesn't mean it's not still beautiful.

I was just at DW last week and love the place (did Magic Kingdom for my daughters 6th birthday - the princesses are HOT). The Tree of Life is VERY cool. They have the Bugs Life show in the root section and you walk all thru the trees roots to get to the show. Every turn reveals something new and unexpected. It truly is the centerpiece - and well deserving. They just need to add some bars to the parks like Universal. Nothing like get hammered and riding "Its A Small World"!

AlohaStation:

All parks have bars except MK; for there, it's just a quick boat or Monorail ride to the Tambu Lounge at the Polynesian (or hit one of the other watering holes at the Grand FL or Contemp).

Small world needs it's own bar. I got stuck on it for about 30 minutes. I needed something harder with my Coke. I love the turkey legs though.
