Dis-tionary

In honor of Dictionary Day, a holiday I am sure George over at Imaginerding is fond of, I feel it’s time we get back to visiting the Dis-tionary.

Character Breakfast – Character Breakfasts are exactly what they sound like, they are breakfasts where Disney characters make their way around the restaurant stopping to mingle with guests, take pictures, and give autographs. Depending on the location, and type, of the breakfast characters can range from the classics, like Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, to princess, Winnie-the-Pooh, and even Lilo and Stitch. Aside from breakfast, there are also character meals for both lunch and dinner.

Blue Sky – An Imagineering term used to describe the early stage of development where anything is possible. Technology, time, space, and other constraints are not used to limit ideas during this stage. There is a quote from Walt Disney himself that I feel epitomizes the Blue Sky process, “You know better than to kill an idea without giving it a chance to live.”

Visual Intrusion – A visual intrusion is anything in a given line of sight that disrupts the presentation of the environment. Basically, if you are in Tomorrowland, you don’t want to be to see Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. There are a few examples, the views from Splash Mountain, Expedition Everest, and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, where Visual Intrusion are necessary evils.
