So this is where the government has been hiding area 51. Who knew? My dad used to guard area 51 back in the day.
Did you're dad ever see anything? - darodrig

He saw lots of big black top secret vehicles, lots of guns. Mysterious glows. And would say things like I saw so many things I can't talk about. He had FBI clearance and would not give details. He also was at ground zero for the nuclear bomb testing. - sewedna 85.5 #3205 1:54PM

I'm sorry for your loss. Thanks to your Dad and your family for the service to our country. Most people don't even know they tested the atomic bomb on U.S. soil and all of those that it effected. - sewedna 85.5 #3205 5:05PM
Oh thank you Sewedna :) thanks to your dad as well :) - disneymomi

#News One of the people I follow on Twitter posted that the new Storytellers Statue has been revealed! I can't wait to see it in person!!! :)
This is what I read a few months ago on the reasoning behind the statue being at ground level. Hopefully there will be a CM nearby to make sure it's not tampered with.
It is a young Walt Disney as you would have seen him when he just stepped off the train from Kansas City in 1923, arriving in California to pursue his dreams. The street is set in the time period between 1923-1937, the time when Walt arrived and subsequently innovated, risked and created the studio that is the origin of all that The Walt Disney Company has become. He is located on the ground, not on a pedestal or planter, so that he is accessable to guests – “one of us.” Early Los Angeles (Buena Vista Street) is Walt’s land of opportunity and dreams at this time, and metaphorically it is for our guests as well!
In the scene depicted in the statue, Walt has just arrived in California from Kansas City, and as he looks around in wonder and optimism, the world is his oyster to realize his dreams.

Oh cool, well that's makes sense. I like the "one of us" part! - rbeezy 654.6 #160 2:57PM
@AgentP. Got your top secret package today. I'm soo happy you were able to smuggle it out of the tri-state area. Thank you so much for the great RAK. Very excited to watch the DVD. The surprise gift card made my day. You are the best secret agent ever. The memory of my first RAK will always be special. Hope to meet you some day.
