Best Disneyfied Snapshot of Texas

The Star of Destiny

Disneyland may have Animatronic Abe Lincoln, but we have Sam Houston and a re-creation of the 1900 Galveston hurricane with wind and rain effects to boot. The Texas Spirit Theater's presentation of The Star of Destiny never fails to excite out-of-town guests with its surprise-filled multimedia whirlwind through Texas history from colonization up through the moon landing. Natives are guaranteed to feel a viscous, awkward lump of Texas pride well up in their craws as Houston's ghost exhorts the audience to strive toward being the Texas heroes of tomorrow. God Bless Texas … and take that, Walt!
