    re: The Optimist: Disney's WDI/WED Tomorrowland Movie ARG - Summary and Recap

    So with clues and other things moving into the real world, I guess the only way those of us outside of the area can play is to team up with someone in the area. Boy, am I glad I have you guys reporting on things!

      I believe that I may have found something new. There are 2 other images that are not being used on the cartography site, but are hosted on his server:The first is a picture of Bill Melendez:

      http://disneycartography.com/wp-cont...es/slide-2.jpg

      The second appears to be the 1960 CCCP (Russian) soccer team that won the first European National Cup (found info through a Google image search):

        Given that there have been clues at the Tam O' Shanter... perhaps someone shoud check the Progress City/EPCOT model in The Magic Kingdom's WEDway peoplemover/Tomorrowland Transit Authority since the blueprint in the center of the Tam O' Shanter art is the Florida Project and it could possibly yield something
        The fountain of youth really is in Florida... thats why they built Walt Disney World where they did.

          I noticed your post before but then I couldn't find it again on Amelia's blog. Either way, I read the following thanks to Google:

          The second player on the right is Viktor Ponedelnik who hit the winner in the first final with his 1966 FIFA World Cup Soviet team.

            Looks like these pics have now been removed from the cartography site. No wonder my revelations were moderated on the Story Orbit site.

            So far, this experience seems more like roll-play than game-play. Lame.

                  Had a flash of insight on my commute... what if the dates on Walt's table are time codes relating to the record and the telephone keypad conversion key could lead to the Progressland/CoP project page or something like that on the Lott Family's site
                  The fountain of youth really is in Florida... thats why they built Walt Disney World where they did.

                    Thanks so much for all the updates folks, it's a clever game and I'm enjoying reading all the discovers so far. Pretty cool Disney have created this and put such effort into it for us. Thanks again for sharing!
                    First visit to a Disney Park was to Tokyo Disneyland in Oct, 2005. I was hooked! Was so blessed to visit Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea in 2009, the original Disneyland and California Adventure in 2010, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea in 2011, and an incredible 5 night stay at Disneyland Paris in February 2013.

                      I noticed this on the description of Disney Interactive's presence at the D23 Expo:

                      "Attendees will have the chance to demo an un-announced premium tablet experience which gives Guests unprecedented access to Disney’s rich heritage."

                      Could be something connected, could be nothing.

                        Also, on the DisneyCartography website, Wallace says he's going to have a meet-up before d23 on August 6th. I will definitely try to be there for that. (He said he's going to tweet the location just before.)
                        Yet another reason to wish I could be at D23. If you (or anyone else sharing on this thread) make it there be sure to give us an update!

                        Edited to avoid double posting

                        Rocketeer, I don't think they would have something for the game where you HAD to buy a ticket to D23 to get the clue, however I could be wrong about that. Perhaps I should say I HOPE they wouldn't do that. It is bad enough that you need to be in SoCal to get the offweb clues...

                          Another one of my discoveries was deleted from the Story Orbit blog. I'm getting frustrated with this game. I'm surprised that they've been this sloppy with leaving stuff on their server that they don't want you to find yet. Leaving the puppeteers to delete posts and images once someone finds them ... this is how ARG's work folks.

                          On the other hand, perhaps this is part of the game itself and I should be persistent with spreading the word on what I've found? There's no central group working on this game though, no offense, but this thread has been kind of dead.

                            Oh, what did you find?? I've been lurking around!

                            Yeah I would LOVE to partake in the game but sadly for me, this game has gone way over my head It kind of seems like in order to fully participate in this game, you need a vast knowledge of Disney history to contribute in any discussion. I unfortunately do not have that knowledge. Sure, I can probably research all the information and be able to contribute, but there is always somebody who already knows the answer or figured out the mystery the moment a new blog post goes up, and it kind of takes away the fun for me. So I've just been taking back burner approach of the game and just reading the new developments and enjoying the game from the sidelines. I can't contribute anything in any of the discussions I still haven't figured out how the Cartography page was found! Gah, even though I've been following the game everyday, I feel so behind!

                              Don't feel bad, I've been sidelining it since the beginning because of the local access issues. If those of you who are actively playing could keep the rest of us in the loop that would be awesome! Remember, some folks are living the game through your discussion! No pressure...

                                Wallace posted a new map today, and there's some modern-day things on it, and some special stars and clues.

                                I bet that there are in-park clues now. Heading out after work to the park to see what they are. Hope Autopia has a short line.

                                  I've been posting at least daily recaps - but I've got a ARL (Actual Reality Life) to deal with.

                                  Today was a big drop, so I'm going to head to the park after work - looks like there might be some clues now there.

                                    looking at the map... the three things marked seem to be Signal Flag, Auto Apparatus and Mk. Zero
                                    The fountain of youth really is in Florida... thats why they built Walt Disney World where they did.
