"The little show didn't start until about 8:45, when Al Weiss and the president of Compaq came out. They said hello, described the new attraction in very little detail, and mentioned showing off the plans but couldn't since they are at NASA ready to be launched in Atlantis. The Compaq president then unveiled his giant thirty foot keyboard to give us some details. Weiss said it would be easier with a mouse, and out comes Mickey. Yay.. Mickey pressed the space bar four times, some fireworks shot out of the top of horizons, and a great big beam of light like Universal's shot out of the top. The Space title was also projected onto the front of horizons, along with plenty of stars."
