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  802.2 #276 10:25AM
Also used in the movie A Christmas Story! - Grindcore  614.8 #377 10:43AM
Thank you so much for sharing that! I didn't know either one of those things! Cool! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 11:55AM
And it's a beautiful diorama indeed and displayed behind the cleanest glass panels ever too - pikaplaid  7504.9 #16 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  30168.4 #2 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! - MyPark  1297.9 #155 7:53AM
I love the music used for this part of the attraction - pikaplaid  7504.9 #16 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  16309.9 #4 10:17AM
Yes indeed, wonderful memories! Thanks for the post! :) - piratelife4me  1089.2 #200 11:40AM
The railroad is magical! Thank you MyPark! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  890.8 #242 7:59AM
Thank YOU! Happy you enjoyed this. - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  928.2 #235 8:39AM

You are very welcome! Happy Easter E-Ticket! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 11:53AM
This is one of my earliest childhood memories! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1383.4 #149 9:41AM
What a magical memory lucky you! :) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  1142.4 #185 10:07AM
Great info! Thank you for adding that! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 11:54AM
Sweet! Now I have some Disneyland trivia to share with my birthday! Thanks Duchess - NascarDave  325.0 #869 10:13AM

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  9190.8 #12 10:42AM

The firsttime I saw that Diorama, i am amazed how beautiful it looks! and its length! - otilegna  2860.6 #58 11:22AM
It is quite impressive! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 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  14185.7 #6 11:47AM
This is one reason I don't like to ride the train. Interesting info though SMK! - LilSterner  5828.4 #25 11:59AM
😳 But why?! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 12:02PM
I just think the whole set up is cheesy and it always bothered me. - LilSterner  5828.4 #25 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  197.8 #2158 12:02PM
The addition of the prehistoric theme part. ;) - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 12:13PM
But Disney World opened '71 right? - Westcoast  197.8 #2158 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  6631.6 #23 12:25PM
Ahh... thanks for the clarification. - Westcoast  197.8 #2158 12:32PM
I love this, it's a Disneyland classic! When I think Grand Canyon, I think about the Brady Bunch & Disneyland! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1479.5 #5 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  355.6 #746 12:56PM
Yet another excellent post from the Duchess 😜 - polo33  92.3 #3899 1:28PM
Thank u! I luv the music & sounds effects in this area :) - missariel33  2115.6 #89 2:05PM
That song just started playing in my head, I love that part of the train ride!! Thanks! - adisneyfamily  1092.7 #198 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  827.1 #264 5:27PM
Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy new facts about disneyland - Splashmountgirl  337.1 #809 5:43PM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  11199.5 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10824.0 #11 9:55PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  103.7 #3717 7:14AM
I just want to thank all the newbies who are on the list so much lately! This was started as a wait time and more app so by your starting out from the beginning doing wait times is awesome! 2/3of my points are from wait times. I make a game of it and have fun doing them. Hope everyone tries it, it helps others and you earn credits!!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - secretagentangel  11199.5 #9 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  4487.4 #39 10:28PM
I figure it is the least my wife and i can do, plus it is great exercise! I keep saying, one of these days we will go to one of the meet-ups. We generally only go on Saturday and sometimes Sunday as well. That darn thing called 'work' just gets in the way!  - oiler2112  1293.0 #156 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  301.1 #1017 6:54PM
Next August I will be posting wait times I know it will help pass the time in line but with 15 to 20 of us should go pretty well thanks to you and all the people here on MW - mjpdisney67  84.7 #4071 10:10AM
I'll never catch Winnie, but I have 6 more days to get to number 2. And then my steady decline until my next visitπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:26AM
You can do it! I did 100 in an evening Thursday! - redsoxcarlos  5281.7 #27 4:26PM
I only post wait times if I've actually gone on the ride..( with the exception if the line is extra short, or extra long..) I try to give folks a heads up. Most of the time I have trouble posting times in certain areas of the park so I get frustrated... - carminaire  1046.2 #212 1:19PM

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  4013.0 #46 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14289 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  946.6 #231 9:06AM
I had the same issues more so in the park  - Plumiegirl  10824.0 #11 5:42PM
