Good morning! This day in Disney history, Sep 2nd, 1979. The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction opens. Imagineer Tony Baxter (pictured below) modeled the "wildest ride in the wilderness" attraction after the scenery of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Do you enjoy this attraction, and why? Has it been awhile since you've enjoyed this attraction? For a ride through video: http://is.gd/ZBq0fh (on the app version, click "detail" on the bottom of this thread to make the link "clickable")

In Zoolander voice: "What is that? A BTMRR for ants? It has to be at least 3times bigger.... - Radius  502.7 #370 11:24AM
hahaha!!! - OhanaPhoto  3351.3 #30 11:32AM
I remember what a big deal it was when it first opened. They had long lines similar to the first days of Cars Land. I also remember they kept the "E-Ticket" sign up for several years after the ticket system was done away with. I love the old west theme of BTMRR. Probably since I love western movies and history so much. Oh, and I last rode it way back on Tuesday night. - ScooterMike  1962.2 #66 7:33AM
I LOVE the info you always add ScooterMike! Thank you! Do you by chance remember the average wait time back then? - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 7:39AM
I was five years old, but I recall it being a couple of hours. - ScooterMike  1962.2 #66 7:41AM

What a sweet thing to say! It's my pleasure, really. Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 7:20AM
Love the trivia. You've even found a few that I don't know. My kids love this ride so I have been on it tons. It's also one of the few fast rides that I can take my two kids on by myself after the wife poops out in the evening and I take the kids back to the park for a few final hours. - justme2012  142.5 #2707 7:15AM
Yay! Happy you like these! I'm envious that your kiddos like this attraction. My 6 year old refuses to. ::sigh:: maybe in a few years. Lol - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 7:27AM
QC right there! Haven't been on that ride in about 11 years. Love the simplicity of the ride! Not over complicated and just pure fun!! - joyfulmomma  248.5 #1264 7:20AM
Thank you! I so agree! One of my favorites! Hope that 11 year streak ends soon! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 9:20AM
Thanks for posting, I enjoy reading these! - lynniesue42  232.4 #1469 7:34AM
Awesome! Thanks for letting me know! Thank you! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 9:20AM
This is one I can't remember I was only one years old. My son and I love this ride! - MarshaMouse  4074.4 #24 7:41AM
I'm so jealous he likes it! I gatta get LilSweet to try it again!! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 10:32AM
I've always loved this ride! I remember being a bit torn because I missed the original Mine Train. My dad on the other hand, used to tease me because he liked BTMRR so much better - " Disneyland needed another roller coaster ride!". It still has some reminders of the old ride - the town of Rainbow Ridge and the Rainbow Caverns. I don't remember ever waiting more than 45-60 minutes to ride it in the early days. - Gia  802.0 #198 8:00AM
I so love it when you share your stories with us gia0330! Thank you! 60 minutes isn't bad at all considering it was a new attraction! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 9:22AM
I really enjoy your trivia...especially the park stuff! It brings back so many wonderful memories! - Gia  802.0 #198 3:21PM
This is my favorite attraction in Disneyland because I love the outdoors, the theme is perfect, and I live for drops. Day or night (but mostly night, with the fireworks going off) - it's so much fun. Oh, and who can forget going on this and doing the goat effect?! It's definitely the wildest ride in the wilderness.. big thunder from down underrrrrr! - Jacqueline  580.0 #308 8:08AM
Riding this at night is magical! That down under comment made me giggle! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 10:34AM
I'm from Utah so this brings a touch of " home" for me. I love all the history stuff you do! Thank you!! - abbeyroo68  184.8 #2074 8:29AM
That's awesome, a little piece of home in your happy place! Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me so! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 10:36AM
I haven't been on since may. It was my son's first roller coaster when he hit 40". I have priceless video of his face during the ride. - Mouse4life  1293.1 #108 8:30AM
Isn't seeing your kiddos face on attractions the 1st time amazing?! ::sigh:: hearing that made me feel all warm and gushy inside! thank you for sharing! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 10:39AM
Thanks for the Trivia! So glad my son finally likes to ride this. Lost count of the number of times I would wait in line with my 2 kids and then my son would back out. I didn't feel comfortable leaving him alone so I didn't get to ride. 😞 ✨ - IBelieveInFairies  610.0 #290 8:31AM
OMGoodness I feel your pain! It's one of my favorites an my 6 year old never wants to ride with me. I look forward to solo trips for just that reason! Hopefully both our kiddos will learn to love it soon! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 10:41AM
One of my favorites! - WishIWereThere  262.4 #1128 9:10AM
Mine too! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 11:20AM
Thanks girl! That's awsome - BubbaLoo  870.6 #184 9:12AM
😘 - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 11:21AM
Thank you again SMK! I love these! - IMissDisney  1205.3 #119 9:24AM
::high fives you:: thanks my friend! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 11:21AM
This has to rank #1 favorite ride for me. As for the classic rides that is. Reason for that is my family use to go every year to Disneyland and my mom can't ride the rides (she here very sick) so my dad rode every ride with me. He passed away when I was 15 (quit a few years ago) but this is the one ride that he likes the most and every time I ride if I still get tears in my eyes cause I know he is screaming his head off up there with me. Thank you for these great posts. They bring back some great memories. ;) - 2mousears  16.1 #7287 9:25AM
This made me cry! I'm so sorry for your loss but overjoyed you shared this and that my posts bring back happy memories for you! :) - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 5:49PM
I didn't mean to make anyone sad with my post. I do love all of you factual posts. Thank you again :) - 2mousears  16.1 #7287 10:05PM
I still vaguely remember the commercial they played for it's opening. Awesome commercial back then to a 5 year old, kinda cheesy now. http://tinyurl.com/8rlpd7k - Grindcore  499.4 #374 9:26AM
Thank you. I always look forward to your posts. I have 4 trips planned between October 4 and NYE. I really hope to meet you on one of these trips. I will DM you this time πŸ˜ƒ - LaPearleNoir  1301.3 #106 9:26AM
DM is not currently working, hoping that it works again soon!! I would love love love to meet you sweet stuff! Thanks for the support! - Duchess_SMK  5818.8 #14 5:50PM
Thanks Duchess. I love this attraction, especially during fireworks. - MightyWhitey  1026.8 #153 9:31AM
Bryce Canyon National park is so unusually beautiful. It nice to have it added to Disneyland. And Tony did a great job rendering it for guests to enjoy - E-Ticket  1193.3 #122 9:31AM
This one is my favorite attraction! I'm sad that it goes down in January. Can't ride it now and then it closes for a long time (9+months) :( Enjoy it now while you can! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2278.1 #52 9:42AM
This is one of Kyles(my son) favorite rides..Last week during the Fantasmic AP event my whole family did this ride 4 times in a row without getting off - JollyRoger5  3455.9 #29 9:53AM
By far Bellas favorite ride. She even talks about it in preschool. This attraction has brought me so many great memories over the years. Thanks again for the quality post SMK. Its Sunday and I've been schooled :) - RickChavez  3276.2 #33 10:03AM
What inspired him to create an attraction based off the Bryce Canyon-look was when he found an article in National Geographic saying that this scenic view "should be an attraction at a Disney park" and so, he designed one - BaseballMickey_CM  6482.1 #12 10:50AM
One of my faves! - ScarfGirl  638.6 #267 10:53AM
BTMRR is still one of my favorites,from the famous goat, to the stalagmites and stalactites and Nature's Wonderland pools. My most memorable experience at Disneyland is still the time my sister and I rode BTMRR during the fireworks. That was an unforgettable moment of Disney magic as we were going up the second lift before the goat's turn. It felt like sprinkles of color were within reach in the night sky. - Alicewhoareyou  1392.2 #99 10:53AM
Another awesome post! Thank you - RadiatorSprings4Ever  942.1 #167 10:59AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Update for week of Monday, January 19, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 8am-11pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday-Thursday), 9am-11pm (Friday/Saturday), 8am-12am (Sunday). 

DCA: 8am-10pm (Monday), 10am-8pm (Tuesday-Thursday), 9am-9pm (Friday/Saturday), 8am-10pm (Sunday). 

Attraction Closures: All of Critter Country (re-opening April 2015), Haunted Mansion (opens Friday 1/23), Matterhorn (May 2015), Sleeping Beauty Castle (March 2015), Snow White Grotto (May 2015), Pacific Wharf Cafe (re-opens 2/6), Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (re-opens in March), Soarin over California (re-opens May 2015), Taste Pilots' Grill (re-opens in 3/13). 

This week's "Wednesday with Walt" AP presentation is a look into "The Story of the Silly Symphony". Make sure to pick up a wristband with a valid AP at the Main Street Opera House starting at 12noon on Wednesday to attend one of the presentations that evening. 

unForecast Prediction: Expect it to be quiet this week (CIs in the 50s-low 70s). For the weekend, expect the parks to be moderately busy with CIs in the low 70s-80s, as this is "non-peak" season.

Have a great week MWers!  - BaseballMickey_CM Jan 20, 2015 11:11AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  352.8 #599 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6793 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  114.2 #3188 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  216.8 #1668 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  356.6 #587 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1255.0 #110 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  167.6 #2321 4:40PM

Did you see the photos yesterday, they have the canal ride  frozen land where old mill was. - secretagentangel  1322.0 #104 2:39PM
hardly anything open!  I know - I know - the diamond anniversary- doesn't make sense to travel there with nothing open.   - Sfarrell  80.9 #3711 7:31PM
Why not? I've had a blast all week!! - MissMolly  1265.6 #109 11:42AM
Some may not agree, but I don't think it's that bad. I would be bummed to miss some attractions if it was my one trip of the year, but the crowds are low and the missing attractions will be better than ever in a few months.  - chrismis21  492.6 #381 2:46PM
Me too @Missmolly! - ShariRenee  5017.4 #17 5:50PM
I hope they're changing the matterhorn bobsled seats.  Went once after the last refurbishment and NEVER again.  I literally bruised my tailbone. Everyone had back pain for the rest of the day.   - fancyshmancy1999  5.1 #16183 1:04AM

I was excited for this until reading a little more and for the dinning packages I think they aren't making this affordable for the average person. Also, I hate world of color cause you have to stand so if you get a fast pass through the machines I hope you don't have to stand - Disneyprincessvmk  46.9 #4526 11:36PM
