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 #130 10:45AM
Have you done the walkthorugh at Dl or do we have to add it to our list - pikarich  4110.2 #28 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  2171.5 #64 12:00PM
No prob otilenga. Rich, that's one thing I have actually done. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #130 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 #191 12:45PM
Yes! Definitely agree with you. The music from Sleeping Beauty always gives me chills. - kss4tink  218.0 #1691 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 #1433 10:13AM
I remember thinking this was THE most romantic song ever when I first saw this as a child. :) - MissAmericaSings  384.6 #545 11:06AM
I LOVE this song! I will randomly sing this around the house, cracking my daughters up! Hahahaha. - MeridaFan  3551.2 #36 11:26AM
Listened to that the whole ride in to the park today - BeatleMike  634.8 #292 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  4110.2 #28 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  4110.2 #28 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 #406 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  6064.4 #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 #1433 10:14AM
Appropriate on your birthday lovely! 😘😊 hope your day is magical! - Duchess_SMK  6064.4 #15 10:23AM

Love this film so much!! My family enjoys it too...actually Aurora is my son's fave princess lol!! Thanks for sharing these facts with us Duchess, have a great day! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  885.5 #184 10:34AM
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  125.5 #3011 11:01AM
My favorite Disney movie! I love every part of it! Thanks for the info!!! Always love reading these posts. - mcramos925  401.5 #519 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  5413.3 #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  3551.2 #36 11:28AM
Great info! My favorite scene is when they are trying to make the cake and gifts. Too funny! - erinten  538.5 #358 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  350.3 #622 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  307.7 #813 12:31PM
Definitely my favorite Disney Movie as a child! - MrYalla  5.0 #17499 12:43PM
Ah! My favorite movie of all time. Thanks for the post! :) - CM_KittyPrincess23  268.6 #1111 2:30PM
I don't think I've seen this movie all the way through yet. I've seen bits and pieces though. Maybe I should watch the copy I bought! - LilSterner  4989.7 #20 8:33PM
I think by now it's made up for the financial flop. - lovetheland7  177.3 #2206 9:05PM
😍😍my favorite princess movie. I thought she was the most beautiful princess when I was little. I love the scene with her in the woods singing - PinkElephants  745.7 #232 9:12PM
πŸ˜ƒβœ¨πŸ‘ - E-Ticket  1377.3 #111 9:17PM
I love the singing in the forest scene, because who wouldn't love dancing and being serenaded to in a beautiful forest by a prince? - minniemommy  7.2 #12662 11:28PM
I love that she has a Prince Phillip and so do I. - sewedna  507.7 #387 12:12AM

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

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 June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



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  459.9 #440 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7069 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  130.6 #2942 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  237.7 #1429 5:04PM
I hope to be down at the end of August or first part of September. Which would you choose? - DeneciePie  327.9 #705 10:48PM
Sounds like you'll be there for Disneyland half marathon weekend  - MarshaMouse  4432.1 #23 7:41PM
