Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 31st, 1958. The 306-foot long Grand Canyon Diorama is added to the Disneyland Railway between the Tomorrowland & Main Street stations. The painting (by motion picture artist & designer Delmer J. Yoakum) has been done on a special seamless canvas, which required 4,800 manhours to complete, using 300 gallons of paint in 14 colors! The diorama, which includes taxidermic animals (the only ones in the park) in lifelike poses, is the longest in the world. During the opening ceremony, Walt Disney was joined by his longtime friend Santa Fe Railroad Chairman, Fred Gurley, the namesake of Engine No. 3, which began its service only three days earlier & was officially dedicated the same day. Just beyond the Tomorrowland Train Station, outside the tunnel that houses the diorama, the ceremony featured members of the Hopi tribe, including Chief Negangnewa, who performed a blessing. Among the rare photos from this special day, is a picture of Walt & Mr. Gurley chatting w/the boy who participated in the ceremony. Walt never seemed happier than when he was around the young or the young at heart, or whenever trains were involved! πŸš‚ In 1966, the diorama will be expanded w/ a prehistoric theme, shipped in from the New York World’s Fair Ford Magic Skyway Pavilion. Do you like this attraction? Why?

I've always loved the GC diorama portion, and to add to your post: The main theme of Ferde GrofΓ©'s "On The Trail," the third movement from his Grand Canyon Suite, is piped in through the train's sound system as it enters the diorama. The same movement was used in Disney's 1958 film "Grand Canyon" which was a "pictorial representation" of the music, filmed at the Grand Canyon. - Gia  802.0 #231 10:25AM
Also used in the movie A Christmas Story! - Grindcore  556.2 #366 10:43AM
Thank you so much for sharing that! I didn't know either one of those things! Cool! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:55AM
And it's a beautiful diorama indeed and displayed behind the cleanest glass panels ever too - pikarich  5238.7 #22 7:54AM
A fav for me ever since seeing the Primeval World at the World's Fair when I was 8, then again at Disneyland when I was 10. Amazing it is still on display to enjoy and reminisce about all these years later. - Melody_CM  13474.3 #3 4:23PM
YES! I love the Disneyland Railroad!! I have very early memories of this attraction as well as some very recent of bringing my family to the park. When we were exhausted, we would take the train on the complete circle as I rested. It was also often a great way to go to another part of the park during very busy times and not have to fight crowds. Thank you SMK!! What a great History and such interesting facts about this attraction! You're the BEST! - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 7:53AM
I love the music used for this part of the attraction - pikarich  5238.7 #22 8:22AM
Me too MyPark. The railroad is one of my favorite attractions. It's a great ride just to decompress for a while. You get to see most of the park, people watch, rest and relax. - Tom  11116.2 #6 10:17AM
Yes indeed, wonderful memories! Thanks for the post! :) - piratelife4me  1047.3 #176 11:40AM
The railroad is magical! Thank you MyPark! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:51AM
I've always loved the painting. I didn't realize all of the cool facts about it however. Thank you for this! - DisneyGrandma  877.3 #210 7:59AM
Thank YOU! Happy you enjoyed this. - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:51AM
We love this part of the DL Railroad!! I remember the Dino scenes very well from when I was a child. So fun to learn all of this, I shared it with my family during breakfast! Thank you Duchess for taking the time to post this for us today!! 😊😊 - MinnieMousewife  914.2 #201 8:39AM

This is one of my earliest childhood memories! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1265.7 #135 9:41AM
What a magical memory lucky you! :) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:54AM
I learned from our trip on the Lilly Belle that Delmer died before he could finish it. The art work was finished by his son. If you look closely, you can see where the son picks up where his father left off. The painting style changes ever so slightly. - GoofyMom77  906.7 #202 10:07AM
Great info! Thank you for adding that! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 11:54AM

I LOVE this area of the train experience. It's such a gem to be whisked away and view these stunning scenes. I cannot wait to go on this again because now I will really look and very much appreciate it with a newness - misschurro  6374.4 #17 10:42AM
And thanks! - misschurro  6374.4 #17 10:43AM

Me too! We should do a meetup! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:31PM
The firsttime I saw that Diorama, i am amazed how beautiful it looks! and its length! - otilegna  2680.9 #48 11:22AM
It is quite impressive! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 1:14PM
Thank you Duchess! The Diorama is one of my earliest memories of going to Disneyland. I would sit with my little brothers and we would stare in amazement! - ShariRenee  8578.1 #9 11:47AM
This is one reason I don't like to ride the train. Interesting info though SMK! - LilSterner  5504.0 #19 11:59AM
😳 But why?! - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:02PM
I just think the whole set up is cheesy and it always bothered me. - LilSterner  5504.0 #19 2:17PM
I like the history lessons. One confusing part for me though "In 1966, the diorama ... shipped in from Disney's World's..."? I'm assuming the date is a typo? - Westcoast  174.6 #2325 12:02PM
The addition of the prehistoric theme part. ;) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:13PM
But Disney World opened '71 right? - Westcoast  174.6 #2325 12:17PM
The Primeval World dinosaurs that follow the Grand Canyon diorama were added in 1966. They originated from the 1964 New York World’s Fair Ford Magic Skyway Pavilion. Perhaps that's less confusing, I'll edit. Thanks. :) - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 12:25PM
Ahh... thanks for the clarification. - Westcoast  174.6 #2325 12:32PM
I love this, it's a Disneyland classic! When I think Grand Canyon, I think about the Brady Bunch & Disneyland! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.7 #3 12:36PM
I love this part of the train ride. It's such a beautiful picture of just how beautiful the desert can be. - PixiePirateMaid  345.6 #690 12:56PM
Yet another excellent post from the Duchess 😜 - polo33  65.7 #4275 1:28PM
Thank u! I luv the music & sounds effects in this area :) - missariel33  2115.5 #72 2:05PM
That song just started playing in my head, I love that part of the train ride!! Thanks! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #188 3:16PM
When my husband and I went to the Grand Canyon for the first time we stood there and then said "It looks just like the one at Disneyland!" It is a very realistic Diorama. Once again Duchess, great information! Thank you!!! - Boundin  712.6 #272 5:27PM

Cool admin. Hope I do better than the first one. Hope people that enter will be ready to play and the tournament moves along better - Goofytom  2113.5 #73 6:41PM
Yes, 1 question every 24 hrs was difficult to stick with.  - DisneyMom13  235.5 #1534 6:28PM
Oh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ just realized that post was 2+ years oldπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ well people are still taking turns very slowly. Maybe it's the app, not the players.  - DisneyMom13  235.5 #1534 6:34PM
I will announce the December tournament date this week. - Admin 11:58PM
Can't wait! - sawman911  2622.2 #51 6:30PM
Still waiting. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 12:59PM
I end up deleting games while in progress due to opponents leaving me hanging FOR-EH-VER!!! - MommyandBash  374.3 #608 12:18PM
It happens, if you want start a game and I'll play you. I take a couple days off a week but I'll finish the games I start. - richiii3  1174.2 #153 2:20PM
@@Admin  Can't keep my games going, other end either not answering or app is stalling. It doesn't forfeit after 24 hrs of not answering. Want to play, but instead spend more time waiting and waiting. Thx - DisneyMom13  235.5 #1534 8:26AM

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

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



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  614.6 #331 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7244 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 7:32AM
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  171.2 #2390 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1357 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17627 3:45PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.5 #79309 12:12PM
