Two recent developments. After posting Grandpa’s to-do list, Stephen figured out that Grandpa was referring to Michael T. Lott on the last line of his note, and that “eticket59” was the code to access a project of particular significance. As explained in the footer of an email, by adding a slash and this code to the URL of the Lott Family Construction website, we were able to uncover the original Tomorrowland blueprints. Yeah. Exactly.
Stephen had a pretty interesting theory about those notations in the corners of some of the blueprints:
Oh, yeah. I think he was a writer or some such. I think we chatted at the Fair a bit… but that’s all I really remember.

I’m kind of tripping out right now. Michael might have known Grandpa? And they were both together at the World’s Fair? Geez. Small world. (Yeah, I said that. Because it’s true!)
When I set out to make this film, I thought a little research and a couple of interviews would answer the few questions I had about Grandpa. But the questions are only leading to more questions. And, as many of you have long suspected, it’s becoming clear that Grandpa was more than just a teller of stories; he was in the middle of one!
More and more I feel like making this film and sharing Grandpa’s story is the best thing I can do. Feels good. Feels right. So right that I even get the sense that Mom could be on board. Little by little, here and there, I’ve been bringing up Grandpa. And she hasn’t freaked out. In fact, sometimes, she even responds! So, it must be a sign. Right?
