    I’ve enjoyed all the pictures you contributed to the AllEarsNet.com press coverage. I loved that you got your picture taken with Imagineer Joe Rohde. I’ve enjoyed watching him on so many of the behind the scenes shows that the Travel Channel has done at Disney over the years. In fact, he’s featured in an upcoming show about the location research that was done to create Expedition Everest.

    “Expedition Everest: Journey to Sacred Lands” follows Joe Rohde as he journeys through the land of the Yeti to demonstrate the “miles traveled to accurately replicate the culture, architecture and customs of the Himalayas for Disney’s newest attraction and thrill ride.” The show premiers on the Travel Channel on Sunday April 9th at 8 pm ET. Here’s a link for more info and air times:

    We saw that show on the Disney Magic when we did the 14-night Panama Canal cruise last August, Amy. They had a wonderful presentation about the “making of Expedition Everest” with lots of input (via film) from Joe Rohde. It was fascinating! I’ve also been a big fan of his for years — and you gotta love those earrings!! 🙂

    Come to think of it, maybe it was the earrings that led me to be such a big fan of his. I figure that anyone Disney allows to wear big, dangly earrings (even on national televison) must be one valuable “commodity” for Disney, and a person you really want to listen to when you’re “talking Disney!”

    It doesn’t appear that Beci has visited the Yeti…or has she?

    Joe Rohde’s natural enthusiasm is very habit forming and it makes you just want to listen to him forever.

    Can you imagine anyone else who you would have more fun traveling around the globe with than “Mr. Earrings” himself?
