--The Animation Tour is back open also. You walk into the first room, with a pretty funny movie staring Mushu, and then go into another part of the studio, and some things are explained, and questions are answered. The lady said the studio is on Hiatus, and that "Home on the Range" (which, last I heard, was complete) was sent to WDFA-Burbank for completion. You then went into the depressing studio. The lights were off, screensavers were on, and most of insides of the desks were cleared out. So...Kenan and I went into the Draw your own character thing, and we TRIED to draw Mickey Mouse. Mine came out with a dent in its chin, a jellybean for the nose, an egg for an ear, and a loaf of bread for the other ear...(I even labeled all the parts) Kenan's didnt come out much better, but the girl next to us, who was like 8, had us both beat (well, her and her mom did)
--The Studios were holding auditions for a new ABC show "The Swap" and had a sign saying "Any family with 2 parents, and children, and would like to have a chance to be on tv, come to soundstage 1" and they interviewed you right on the spot
--Stunt Show construction is coming by good, and half of the NY construction is done aswell....But just as thats done, they have set up construction walls around ANOTHER facade, further up the street, and all the windows from that building have been taken out.
--SO....With nothing else to do, and TOT and RNRC flooded with people, we went on the Backlot Tour (Kenan knows whats coming ) So, we were both in the front of the line, waiting on the ramp, to get into the special effects water tank. They came by and asked if we wanted to do it. Me running my big mouth, I was like "OF COURSE!!!" and convinced Kenan to do it to. So we got down there, and got our blue poncho's on, and great big giant, impossible to walk in boots on, and were given the part of the 2 guys on the boat when it gets attacked. So, we're cleaning and cleaning, and the waters exploding, and im dying, and Kenan's pointing in the wrong direction...and it seemed to go on forever. The lady was like "OH NO, theres a torpedo! Wheww, that was close...but then you think its over, and here comes a bomb!...Wheww, you made it thru that one, but just when you think its over..." and she went on FOREVER ...It stunk we didnt get to see ourselves on the monitors or on a small tv or something.
So, we did the Backlot Tour, and they now have a speel for the stunt show included in the ride.
