    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

              When it comes to books being made into movies, I try my best to read the book before watchign the movie. If I do it the other way around, I feel like I am cheating. Even with reading Wicked after having listened to the soundtrack for the broadway show felt like I had already formed an opinion about the characters.

              I took a great class at a community college. It was a Film Noir class. We read the book then watched the corresponding movie. The book that was closest to the movie was The Maltese Falcon. It seemed as thought the screenplay was being read straight from the book.

                  I've read all of those, with the exception of Constantine, Sin City, and Fantastic Four.

                  I'm very excited about Winn Dixie. It's one of my favorite children's books and I saw the trailer last weekend.....Dave Matthews!! WooHoo! Works for me. Courtney and I are uber-excited!! She's also freeeeeaaaaking out about Narnia. She's seen all the cartoons and the freaky live-action videos. Total obsession for her.

                  I am NOT excited about Fever Pitch. It was already made into a movie......starring Colin FIRTH! I don't need it remade!! Geez!

                  The Traveling Pants might make a cute movie to see with my daughter.

                  And my sister and I already made a pact several years ago that if In Her Shoes was made into a movie, that we'd see it together, ASAP. We're nothing like the sisters....but we both loved the book. And shoes.

                      I'm really excited for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Those books were so hilarious! I remember an old BBC version of it from long ago, too, I think.

                        I posted this in another thread, but I'm taking a class this semester that deals with how women are portrayed in fiction and how those works of fiction are adapted into movies.

                        Here's our reading list for the semester
                        Emma by Jane Austen
                        Orlando by Virginia Woolf
                        The Women of Brewster Place by Gloria Naylor
                        Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel
                        The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

                        We will also be watching the film adaptations of all these works and discussing them. Our major writing assignment will be to choose 3 of the above works and write our own adaptations of them. Sounds like fun!!!

                        We watched the Gwenyth Paltrow version of Emma and will be watching Clueless, which was based on Emma.

                        Just giving my 2 cents. Cheers!

                        Do you remember your imagination?
                        When Neverland was your destination.
                        Your magical adventure isn't over yet,
                        Just hold on tight and don't forget...
