              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.

                        I dunno. I've seen CM friends of mine do Guest Control for Fantasmic! and they pretty much rock. If it was me, I'd be sitting at a table at the River Belle Terrace doing my nails using the flashlight to dry my polish. "Where's the bathroom? I dunno, do I look like your mama?!"
