My Dear Friends, I am so very pleased to invite all of you to a special showing of Fantasmic. What will make this evening’s performance so special is that this will be Walt Disney World’s first use of the highly successful Glow With the Show technology that has been so popular with World of Color. It will be quite some time before the ears become part of the show here in the Studios, or any other Walt Disney World parks, for that matter. This is just a preview for a very select group of guests to give our Imagineers a chance to see how the ears will work with Fantasmic before it even opens at Disneyland so they can sort out any technical glitches and I am very honored and excited to be able to invite you to be part of this evening. Naturally you, along with all attendees, will be provided with a pair of Glow With the Show ears for you to keep as a souvenir of this wonderful evening. As you will be attending the last show of the evening, I will be hosting a dessert reception for you along with the full cast following the performance. Since we expect the evening will end quite late, hotel arrangements have been made for you over at Boardwalk’s Innkeeper’s Club. For my dear friend Dory, my master Yensid and I have conjured up a magically levitating saltwater fishbowl so you will be able to attend. Simply think of the direction you want to go, and the fishbowl will float there - just like walking. There's no reason for you to miss this special event just because you live in the ocean. I look forward to seeing all of you following the show. After all, we’re all part of the Magic. As always, your friend, Mickey Mouse The 48 hour check in period starts now. During this time, read the letter, arrive, get checked into the Boardwalk (you are concierge level guests, so you will be greeted by a cast member at the front of the hotel, taken up to a small desk on the 4th floor, given your room key, and then taken to your room), and then arrive at Fantasmic for the show to begin. The end of the check in period will coincide with the start of the show; anyone who hasn't checked in at that time will become a VIP Detective. Check in period start time: 19 August @ 2.05 pm PST, 5.05 pm EST, 10.05 pm GMT, 20 August @ 6.05 am Tokyo Check in period end time: 21 August @ 2.05 pm PST, 5.05 pm EST, 10.05 pm GMT, 22 August @ 6.05 am Tokyo OOC: I realise that the Glow With the Show has not reached WDW - and probably will not for some time. I'm taking creative license with an announcement that has been made for a DLR show as a reason to invite guests to see a showing of Fantasmic. Just go with it, please.
