READY FOR LAUNCH — Actor Gary Sinise (right) makes a surprise
visit Dec. 26, 2003, to Mission: SPACE, the newest thrill ride at
Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. to the delight
of the Rottier family from Plainville, Conn. Sinise stars on the
Epcot attraction as the Capsule Communicator (CapCom) that guides
guests on their pulse-racing journey to Mars. Here, Sinise
autographs a scale model of the X-2 rocket that guests board in the
ride for (L-R) Rick Rottier, Andrew Rottier, 8, and Michael
Rottier, 10. Sinise is appearing at Epcot this week as the
celebrity narrator for the Candlelight Processional, a re-telling
of the Christmas story accompanied by a massed choir and 50-piece
orchestra. Sinise will narrate the special event through Dec. 30.
