Starry Skywith Star named TD 748. TD = Tim Delaney?by Nicolas
When you look up to the ceiling in the green room, you can see lots of pairs of letters and numbers. The following list shows all 41 pairs:
AG732 - AG752 - BB942 - DA760 - DH447 - DL453 - DM362 - DW258 - EB652 - EP863 - FB355 - FM652 - IP556 - JB156 - JF232 - JF646 - JG143 - JG245 - JL963 - LE453 - LM554 - MF859 - MK254 - MR246 - NG260 - NP766 - OF932 - PB148 - PL153 - RB764 - RH865 - RP257 - SB766 - SB858 - SE174 - SE252 - SP770 - TD748 - TM658 - VG767 - WW046transcribed by Nicolas
Where is it?SE252 seems to have vanished!REPORTED: Nicolas on 8 Oct 1999
TheoryThe letters could be initals of the imagineers who worked on Space Mountain.
Nicolas has asked for names of imagineers in a letter to DLP but received only an answer with the following content: "We are sorry, we can't tell you that. This information isn't for our guests."
One CM of SM who knows very much about SM told Nicolas: "Nobody can be sure of the right names, and concerning the numbers, some of them are birthdates, but some of them are Cast Members's ID's numbers, or other kind of numbers, like the part of the working area the Imagineer was working at..."
If the letters are initials and the numbers birthdates then the meaning of the three digits could be month/year, but since there is only one digit for the month, "1" would mean both January and November, "2" February as well as December.
Nicolas and I have compiled the following list with possible pairs of initals and names of imagineers (found on the web) who could have been involved in Space Mountain's construction.
If you have any further inside knowledge to disclose this secret, please let me know!
