    Now that, i'd pay good money to see. It has something for everyone and the music is such an important part of Disney history. I would be so fasinated with everything this would have to offer, that would be worth paying a museum price for, and if ever given the chance, i'd go. Sounds amazing!

            I'll be back up in Seattle by then! I'm excited for it, and I'd be all for a MiceChatters meet.

            Is anyone else planning on going to the Disney Music Convention at EMP from Nov 3-5?? It hasn't been highly-publicized (I don't think it even has its own site) but it's definitely happening.

              Sounds like great fun!

              For a second I thought some of this would be in DCA's Animation exhibit...
