Ristorante Italiano

Mama Melrose's has a great sign facing the Muppet's exit area. With a tasty spread of food on the wall, the Mona Lisa sportin' the shades, and the smell of garlic and fresh Italian food you can't be anything but hungry when you walk by!

The security gate job appears to be, um, interesting. Or maybe just plain boring. Judging by the clutter we have an aspiring star (nice Oscar) who has one old computer and phone. They do have some great people watching if only they didn't sneak out for a bite to eat all the time or to go schmooze with the stars... Check out all the (somewhat dated) details in the shack the next time you are by the Backlot Express...

Noodle Station

The Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station - one of those eateries that always looks tasty but every time I'm there is never open. It always looks like it is close to being open, signs are out, etc. but I'm still batting zero...

Desktop: High Security

Who are we kidding - high security at the Muppet Show? Yeah right...

Chief Engineer

Look at the window in the Main Street train station facing out over the entrance and you can see Walt Disney's own window. As the chief engineer for the Walt Disney World Railroad he really lived up to their motto Keeping Dreams on Track.
