The LOST Petition makes the Around Disney blog.
I was very surprised to see an email from a reporter for The Orange County Register asking if she could contact me for an interview. I remember as a teenager, going to High School at Los Amigos High (Fighting Lobos) in Fountain Valley seeing the paper on the dining room table at breakfast. This was twenty plus years ago, so the memory is hazy. (Yes kids, back then they printed the news on actual paper.)
So a couple of days ago I had a really nice conversation with Sarah Tully, who writes for the Register’s Around Disney blog, which has news and information about all things Magic Kingdom (aka Resort Area of Anaheim where Walt Disney’s Disneyland is located, perhaps you’ve heard of it?)
The interview resulted in this article (click on through to give some linkage):
If fans of the “Lost” T.V. show have their way, all would be part of a show-themed attraction at a Disney park. Preferably, Tom Sawyer’s Island would become “Lost” Island at Disneyland.
Fans are circulating an online petition to ask Disney to put an attraction based on the science-fiction show in one of its parks. See the petition HERE.
The organizer, former Orange County resident Jon Stueve, aims to collect 5,000 signatures by today so that a fellow “Lost” fan can deliver it to officials at the “Lost” premiere in Oahu, Hawaii. As of mid-Thursday, more than 3,000 people had joined the petition.
While I’m disappointed that Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokesman commented that Walt Disney Imagineering officials aren’t, “contemplating the concept.” I’m not really surprised. Imagineers are men of science, after all, and they’ll need some convincing from some of us men (and women) of faith. So I’m taking a ‘whatever, dude!’ attitude, and just gonna enjoy the idea as it dances through the my ever decreasing grey matter.
Thanks again, Sarah for the article and taking the time to contact me, and listen to this hair brained idea. It is the highest praise of a ‘hard core’ LOST fan to say to you – You All Everybody!
