Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 29th, 1959. "Sleeping Beauty", Disneys 16th full length animated feature premieres @ the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. Story development started in 1951, meaning that in total, it took 8 years to make. Animation alone took 6 years because of the level of detail in each frame. Have you ever noticed that the film seems like a moving piece of art? Well that's because Walt wanted each frame worthy of being displayed in a gallery! At $6 million, it was the most expensive animated film ever made. Sadly, it earned $5.8 million, less than what it cost to make, meaning Disney lost money on it. It will be nominated for an Oscar for Best Music/Scoring of a Musical Picture. The voice cast includes Mary Costa (as Princess Aurora), Eleanor Audley (as Maleficent), Barbara Jo Allen (as Fauna), and Verna Felton (as Flora). Have you seen this film? What is your favorite part?

One of my favs! My favorite part of the movie is the music... Tchaikovsky!! The musical score features many pieces from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty ballet, 1890. Thank you SMK! Love this movie. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #133 10:45AM
Have you done the walkthorugh at Dl or do we have to add it to our list - pikarich  4303.3 #27 11:01AM
THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING THIS! Pretty Much the musical score of the movie was based on Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Ballet... Once Upon a dream is a waltz from the ballet! - otilegna  2174.8 #64 12:00PM
No prob otilenga. Rich, that's one thing I have actually done. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #133 12:40PM
Thanks for the additional info, MyPark! Tchaikovsky is a brilliant composer, and I'd go as far to say 95% of the general population has heard his work, and they just don't know it ;) - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #192 12:45PM
Yes! Definitely agree with you. The music from Sleeping Beauty always gives me chills. - kss4tink  218.0 #1694 10:15PM
β™ͺI know you I walked with you once upon a dream.β™ͺ - Stitch_Legacy  5137.8 #19 10:11AM
My daughter and I sing that song EVERY day!! - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1437 10:13AM
I remember thinking this was THE most romantic song ever when I first saw this as a child. :) - MissAmericaSings  386.9 #543 11:06AM
I LOVE this song! I will randomly sing this around the house, cracking my daughters up! Hahahaha. - MeridaFan  3577.4 #36 11:26AM
Listened to that the whole ride in to the park today - BeatleMike  635.3 #293 9:48AM
The book at the beginning was actually made and has been seen in many exhibits.It was very common to use live shots as an introduction to a film winnie the pooh was the most used in this style.Also as part of Fantasmic ,murphy the dragon now on it;s second version is the best dragon in the show with real fire breathing capabilities. The first summer it debut it was missing for most of the first summer due to technical difficulties, who remembers that?my favorite part is the villians did not find Aurora because they were looking for her as a child.lol - pikarich  4303.3 #27 10:58AM
and to add cinderella can be found everywhere in the parks, from the castle walk through,meet and greet, parades and fireworks. - pikarich  4303.3 #27 11:18AM
Love everything about this movie. Another fact- Aurora/Briar Rose has the least amount of spoken lines throughout the movie and they all come at the second half. - aprilinjune4  483.4 #408 10:30PM
Saw this movie with my mom and dad at the drive-in. We had to put our jammies on before we went. My little brother fell asleep. So I got to climb up front and sit between my mom and dad. You know how hard it is hearing a movie through a little speaker but I think they made out of tinfoil.  - Midasgold  614.1 #306 2:10PM
I couldn't resist commenting on this, my apologies for the tardy bump, well, 1 year and 1 day...lol, but what a cute memory that was! Thanks so much Midasgold for sharing that! Your comments always make me smile! "jammies" - Duchess_SMK  6104.3 #15 9:42AM
Thanks for this! I never knew.. Lol. My friend used to call me Sleeping Beauty because I'd always fall asleep everywhere. - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1437 10:14AM
Appropriate on your birthday lovely! 😘😊 hope your day is magical! - Duchess_SMK  6104.3 #15 10:23AM

Very interesting that the film originally made a loss. Something tells me that the DVDs and "Aurora" merchandise sold over the years may have turned this around. Great job Duchess. - RapunzelledColey  125.9 #3008 11:01AM
My favorite Disney movie! I love every part of it! Thanks for the info!!! Always love reading these posts. - mcramos925  410.8 #504 11:07AM
Wonderful movie. I really enjoy the forest scenes bc of the colors the chose and the shapes of the trees. So well done. Thanks, Duchess!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5459.8 #17 11:21AM
Love the classics! The perfect movie! Sigh. I am curious how much rereleases and video/DVD sales have made over the years. So sad it actually lost money originally! I hope Walt wasn't raked over the coals for that! - MeridaFan  3577.4 #36 11:28AM
Great info! My favorite scene is when they are trying to make the cake and gifts. Too funny! - erinten  539.8 #359 11:57AM
One of my favorite movies. Once Upon a Dream was such a romantic song. I had a crush on the prince as a little girl. - Witchie77  350.5 #626 12:22PM
OMG! This is my most FAVORITE movie and not just Favorite movie! I am so happy about this post! This movie needs more recognition! - PrincessDaisy  322.2 #737 12:31PM

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

unFORECAST for the week of July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



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  487.8 #404 5:39PM

Going to be in the park Dec. 29-Jan. 2. We've always been during the Summer and Spring so this will be our very first time there during the Holiday Season. What is the weather there like during Winter, what should Hubby and I be packing and what should I be packing for my two boys ages 8 and 9? I know the park is usually packed during the Holidays (from what I have read), would we still be able to park hop (we bought 5 days park hoppers) if we get our hands stamped?

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here
