    Yeah, thats what happened to the one that had the door off I believe.. which was originally on the studio tour next to the other version you see today. Disney thought it would be a magnificent idea to reuse it as a drink stand display...bloody geniuses working for that park...

    FYI, I'm going to be going to Disney World just after Christmas, and I'll be getting pics of the Rocketeer gear at the backlot. LMK if ya'll need specific shots.

    I'll go by that drink stand and see if anything's there, I never saw it before, but I'll look

    -TC
    I believe Hollywood Studios also has an exibit called "Walt Disney: One Manís Dream" that is supposed to have some Rocketeer stuff in it.

    Funny thing is that I've been there so many times, and I've never gone through there. Should still be there, and if so, I'll take a look

    Alright, well I got alot of pics today. I took as many as I could while at the backlot tour warehouse, tried my best to get quality zoom shots of what I could see. Pissed off alot of people in the process. I also got a few pics of two props from that movie surrogates.

    I was happy to find a well displayed rocket pack in the walt Disney legacy area. I got ALOT of pics, got it from alot of different angles, zooms, with/without flash. Tried to get it all within my limits.

    On top of that, they had a random original Tron helmet right next to it, and got quite a few detailed shots of those. Unfortunatly, I won't be able to upload them tonight because I may have forgotton to bring my camera cable to transfer to my laptop. I'll be making a seperate image thread for them.

    Was the worst time I've ever spent at Disney

    I know I said I had more, but I honestly cannot find any more than this one. The other ones I did find were too fuzzy to be of any use.

    Since you know disney world pretty well, is there a rocketeer pack on display in a restaurant? Some-one told me there was a rocketpack displayed in a restaurant along with Jenny's photo from the gee bee...

    Not sure if this has been answered yet, but they do have a rocketeer pack on display at the Sci-Fi Dine in Theater. It's in the left hand hallway when you get seated, pretty high up on the wall in a glass case. I actually saw it a few days after you posted while on my honeymoon. I'll see if I can find the pics I snapped of it when I get home from work.

    *shrug* It's possible. Unfortunately there wasn't any type of tag giving details on it. Heck, it was so high up on the wall, and in such a dark area I barely noticed it on the way out. And got a significant rolling of the eyes from my wife when I geeked out over it.
