    Already taken tomorrow morning off work to hit DL and LA to pickup the clues that we can - an excellently timed power outage at work makes this possible! Walt's barn isn't open until the 3rd Sunday of the month - this might take us a while (unless it's specially open tomorrow for clues). Sounds like an adventure!

        Can't wait for an update about the trip to Club 33! I saw some pics from another fan, but am waiting for our own resident sleuth to give his take on the tour...

        Also, anyone in our MC group get chili yet? Wondering if there are more than two messages.

            Alright, stopped by Chili John's to pick up my can.
            For anyone worried about being able to get one, they confirmed for me that they have around 300 cans still left.

            The message in my can differed from the one already discovered, referencing a "Science Factual Program" which was an actual series of films Disney Produced. (Youtube.)

            Here are scans of the front and back of the card.
            The Optimist - Imgur


            Interestingly, the back was actually printed to give the illusion of the printing bleeding through. I flipped it horizontally, but it appeared to contain the same text as the front. Odd that they would go through the trouble if there were no differences to be identified. Maybe the darker text combines to spell out something?

            Being the obsessed detective I am, I'm now going to peel back the can label and see if anything has been hidden there. EDIT: there's nothing there. Nobody else needs to ruin their can to find out.

              The symbols on the crest from Club 33 seem to match up to directions on the Disneyland map. Obviously WED is the Castle, and Sam Clemens is the Mark Twain, but it looks like we've got some contenders for the other locations:


              HG Welles: Tomorrowland Hub? Astro Orbiters?
              Tesla: Space Mountain?
              Amelia Earhart: Main Street? Maybe dedication plaque?
              Jules Verne: Adventureland? Jungle Cruise?
              Eiffel: Fantasyland? Matternorn?
              Edison: Frontierland? Thunder Mountain?


              Maybe we should be checking the dedication plaques for each land?

                I only just stumbled on the records from an Inside the Magic video sync. Now the game is better capturing my attention.

                  Man, today's trip to Club 33 was A-Ma-ZING!!! I envy you being there MM and thank you for so kindly sharing the experience with us. Know that we all appreciate what you are doing for us.

                    After today's AMAZING day - I'm stuck for a few hours at work. Once I'm off, I'll get home and break open that can!

                    Thanks for everyone that watched. When Wallace called for my name, my heart skipped a beat! This was really fun.

                    When I was on the phone, it all felt so REAL to me. I didn't have time to think about anything else. What an awesome experience.

                      I was just brainstorming ideas for where the clues from the "compass" could be and here is what I came up with:

                      AME = Amelia Mary Earhart

                      --saw a picture of AME in the Opera House by exit of Lincoln the other day!


                      JGV = Jules Gabriel Verne

                      --Old 20,000 leagues under the sea exhibit (the doors to enter were where the star tours line overflow room is now)


                      SLC = Samuel Leghorns Clemens (Mark Twain)
                      --Mark Twain Riverboat: I’m thinking museum or wheelhouse


                      
TAE = Thomas Alva Edison
 (not sure on this one)
                      --?big thunder mountain or ranch(thunder and electricity?)
                      --Daphne on the blog mentioned that Carnation Gardens(now Fantasy Faire) was meant to be Edison Carnation Gardens. Could be a lead.


                      WED = Walter Elias Disney

                      --clue in walkthrough or center stake? or maybe even the hub


                      AGE = August Gustav Eiffel
                      --France section of IASW


                      
HGW = H.G. Wells

                      --I know he was a science fiction writer and thats about it. so just a guess but the satalites where astro orbiters used to be look pretty "War of the World"'s like.
                      --only other thing I can think of science fiction like is maybe there is something inside Innoventions


                      NT = Nicola Tesla

                      --alot of theories out there about him making contact with aliens. so thinking space mt. here but almost everything in TL is space themed now so who knows.

                      I wish I could've looked after the event today but I (and it seemed most of the group) couldn't stay long. Maybe some people can get together a different day and look together. It'd be nice to do this with someone else

                        Doesn't Innoventions have something about "building a better tomorrow" in either the global neighborhood area by Seimens or the Home of Tomorrow? Or, the previous location of the House of the Future perhaps?

                        Great video MM! Was fun watching live as you got the phone call!

                          One of Wells' books was... The First Men In The Moon! Also, Wikipedia can be a friend...

                          From quite early in his career, he (Wells) sought a better way to organise society, and wrote a number of Utopian novels. The first of these was A Modern Utopia (1905), which shows a worldwide utopia with "no imports but meteorites, and no exports at all";[27] two travellers from our world fall into its alternate history. The others usually begin with the world rushing to catastrophe, until people realise a better way of living: whether by mysterious gases from a comet causing people to behave rationally and abandoning a European war (In the Days of the Comet (1906)), or a world council of scientists taking over, as in The Shape of Things to Come (1933, which he later adapted for the 1936 Alexander Korda film, Things to Come). This depicted, all too accurately, the impending World War, with cities being destroyed by aerial bombs. He also portrayed the rise of fascist dictators in The Autocracy of Mr Parham(1930) and The Holy Terror (1939). Men Like Gods (1923) is also a utopian novel.

                            I posted this notice from the Carolwood website on Amelia's blog, but thought I'd put it here as well. We don't need anyone getting delayed by unforeseen construction.

                            SPECIAL PARKING ALERT!
                            The surrounding streets and parking areas near the Disney Barn are a mess with closures and detours. We have decided to open even though there will be some challenges. Look for and follow the special signs for Disney Barn parking and then a queue up for Barn tours.
                            The usual east/member parking area will not be accessible. Guests will need to follow our posted signs to the LALSRM west parking lot. They will also enter through the main LALSRM entrance and we will escort them to the Barn area.

                              Thanks for the note! We scoped it out yesterday. It will another early day for me tomorrow, as I head up to the barn!

                              Excited to see what we see! Yesterday's full recap is in the first post.

                                    The telegraph station at the NOS/Frontierland Station is reading Walt's opening day speech in Morse Code. Is this relevant to the new attraction poster details?

                                          According to the Blog, Ricky decoded the new message at the Train Station:

                                          “Welcome society members of 1966 and our new inductee RDB.”

                                          Ray Bradbury is who they are suggesting the initials are for, which seems to make sense given the circumstances.

                                          Another interesting point: The person who links to the morse code sound recording (by Jeff, one of our Communicore Weekly hosts), is by a gentleman named Roland. Considering Jeff wrote his biography, I'm wondering if it's Rolly Crump himself following along...
