Tribute Island: A Tribute to Disney — 1:00pm — 4:00pm

This week: A Trib­ute in Music to (Uncle) Walt Dis­ney!

From Nik Huett, Man­ag­er of Trib­ute Island:

Okay, so, over at the island we’re a bit over-excit­ed about this one, being bor­der­line Dis­ney-geeks an’ all.

Walt left us visions to cre­ate a bet­ter and clos­er soci­ety and the inspi­ra­tion for oth­ers to fol­low their own visions and dreams. He had a total dis­re­gard for age and a beliv­ed imag­i­na­tion, inno­cence, curios­i­ty and spir­it should have no end
and left us a lega­cy of mag­ic, charm, and sin­cer­i­ty that the world will not soon for­get.

So, is it a yel­low dress for Belle and a blue dress for Cin­derel­la? I can’t remem­ber. Any­way, grab ya Cap­tain Hook out­fit or ya Tin­ker­belle wings. Strap on the Buzz Lightyear hel­met or your mer­maid tail. Wood­en boys and bears of lit­tle brain, front and cen­tre. Are you a Baloo or a Scrooge McDuck? A Wicked Step­moth­er, King of Lions, Tiki bird, Blue Genie, or a Haunt­ed Man­sion escapee? Lets see what ya got.

This week only, a prize for best out fit of L$500 (just cos, well, we REAL­LY like our Dis­ney), will be inde­pen­dent­ly judged by Miss Emil­ly Lady­bird (pro­fes­sion­al RL the­atri­cal cos­tume design­er) dur­ing the event.

Come dance, have some fun, and lis­ten to those Dis­ney clas­sics, in trib­ute with the one and only Gabi Riel of Radio Riel.

About Trib­ute Island

Trib­ute Island is all about cel­e­brat­ing the lives of the peo­ple we’ve lost and loved. Peo­ple who have inspired us, enter­tained us, self­less­ly pro­tect­ed us, and who have filled our lives with sound and colour.

Most of our exhibits are inter­ac­tive in some way. This place has loads of ‘East­er eggs’ just for fun. The island is rough­ly divid­ed into top­i­cal areas. Enjoy explor­ing, and click the exhibits for free­bies and to leave your own trib­ute. We also hold reg­u­lar events, and infor­ma­tion is post­ed for these both in the Info Cen­tre and at the hub or avail­able thor­ough the Trib­ute Island group. Why not grab a free Trib­ute Island scoot­er from by the main tele­hub to help you get about.

Trib­ute Island is an ongo­ing exper­i­ment by Asso­ci­at­ed North­cliffe Dig­i­tal, part of the online wing of the DMGT group in the UK. It is kept free for every­one to use for the fore­see­able future. Trib­ute Island is man­aged by AND staff, who run social events and main­tain the sim on a semi-vol­un­tary basis. If you would like to help, please con­tact a sim man­ag­er for more infor­ma­tion.

Trib­ute Island was built dur­ing Octo­ber ’07 by AND, with the senior design con­sul­tants and mas­ter builders of Wind Meta Works.

Please explore the island, take some time to con­tem­plate and think about some of the exhibits, and help cel­e­brate the lives of the peo­ple rep­re­sent­ed here.
