Posted on
Officially, according to Imagineering, another group of fearless adventurers with somewhat tentative connections to the Adventurers Club formed the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A.) on August 12, 1938 and began attracting the attention of Disney fans in 2001 with the opening of Tokyo DisneySea. In the Fortress Explorations area, a type of museum of fanciful items enchants guests including a seismic recording station embedded in Mount Prometheus where S.E.A. members tracked and recorded the volcano's activities.

Friday night we had dinner at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney. We don't eat here very often, and I don't really know why, because we always look at the menu and have a hard time choosing - there are so many things that look good! I had made a priority seating for 8:00, and we were quickly seated at an outdoor table on the ground floor right against the railing, so we had a great spot to people-watch those going by.
