Back in November, Jim Korkis wrote a blog entitled, Where in the World is the Rocketeer. In that blog he cited several examples of where at Walt Disney World you could still find artifacts from the movie.
I finally had a chance to do some exploring at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant just as lunch service began on a very low crowd day. The Cast Member was very willing to allow me (in the public areas) to search for the Rocketeer!
It is extremely dim in the aisles behind the theatrical flats, so these photos aren't the greatest but it shows they are still there. I didn't want to use a flash and disturb the guests having lunch and watching the movies.
Here are notes from Jim's blog and the corresponding photos.
On the left side, down to the right and near the bottom is the black and gold front cover of the South Seas Club menu-secured under plexiglass. The South Seas Club was the scene of a showdown between the Rocketeer and villain Neville Sinclair and his thugs.
Wandering a little farther down, just before the entrance to the main dining area, high on the left wall is a rocket pack that was used in the actual film.
Directly to the right and about waist level and protected by plexiglass is a prop copy of the Los Angeles Examiner newspaper with the headline "Who is the Rocketeer?"
When you read Jim's blog you'll see he talks about items at Peevy's Polar Pipeline, but I have yet to find the kiosk open so I could search for more Rocketeer!
