Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY!
This day in Disney history, June 14th, 1959: Three major attractions are christened! The first being the ALWEG Monorail Mark I. At this time it ran on a .8 mile track around Tomorrowland. It was the first daily-operating monorail train system in the Western Hemisphere. The German ALWEG company developed a working monorail prototype, which caught Disney’s eye in 1957. He worked out a deal with ALWEG in which his designers would develop a monorail using ALWEG’s basic design as the starting point. Bob Gurr, designed Disneylands' version, a sleek train w/ a rocket-ship nose, stainless steel side panels, & the famous front bubble top. The Disneyland Monorail’s appearance was a completely different from the plain, functional design of ALWEG’s prototype (or ALWEG’s later Seattle Monorail, built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair).
The day was celebrated with a dedication ceremony & ribbon cutting that included V.P. Nixon & family.
To watch the ceremony: http://tinyurl.com/2d2mc6b
In June of 1961, the Monorail track was extended to 2 1/2 miles, Disneyland Hotel guests were then able to board the Monorail at the hotel & begin their park visit in Tomorrowland.
Do you like the Monorial? When was the last time you were on it?

Also on this day @ Disneyland, The Matterhorn Bobsleds, open!
Modeled after the Matterhorn, a real mountain in the Swiss Alps it is the 1st roller coaster to use cylindrical rails & urethane wheels (standard in the roller coaster industry today). Built by coaster builder, Arrow Dynamics & WED Imagineering.
Originally a dirt mound created from what was removed to make the moat around Sleeping Beauty Castle. First named Holiday Hill & then Lookout Mountain, Park Operations staff continually had to keep a look out due to its unofficial status as “Lover’s Lane.” The Matterhorn was conceived by Walt during two trips he made to Switzerland. Walt wanted to figure out a way to hide the unsightly Skyway pylon, what better then a 147' high mountain?
Supposedly, Walt sent a postcard featuring the Matterhorn back to the states w/ the edict “Build this.” Walt was discouraged by Joe Fowler when he wanted to “make some snow & have a toboggan ride.” Difficulties in creating the snow & drainage were solved by using steel, wood, plaster, & paint. Disneylands Matterhorn is a 1/100th replica of its Swiss namesake & the tallest structure inside Disneyland. What was Walt’s response when he first saw the completed attraction? Legend has it that he said, “It’s 10' too short.” HA!
It wasn't until 1977/1978 that the Matterhorn was refurbished to add the Yeti (Harold) & instead of being 1 car, 2 cars were joined, which basically doubled the attraction's capacity.
Do you like this attraction? Do you have a favorite side, & why?

In addition, The Submarine Voyage, is officially dedicated (even though it's been open since June 6th). Another E ticket attraction, it cost $2.5 million dollars to create. 38 Riders were able to enter the 8 half-submerged mini-submarines. Each 52' long sub cost about $80,000 to build were each 52 feet long, weighed 94,000 pounds, & could go about 1.7 miles per hour. The Disney-designed subs were built @ the Todd Shipyards in San Pedro, California. The fleet was originally named after the U.S. Navy's atomic submarines: The Nautilus, The Seawolf, The Skate, The Triton, The Ethan Allan, The Patrick Henry, The Skipjack, & the George Washington.
Sitting on small fold-down seats, guests leaned forward to peer out through port holes on either side. The subs moved around a track in the mermaid lagoon and gave the illusion of diving by having bubbles rise around it while the captain intoned commands over the loudspeaker. Guests saw an underwater volcano, lost treasure, a "graveyard of lost ships," the legendary Lost Continent of Atlantis, a treasure chest of gold, mermaids, a sea serpent, and passed under icebergs at the “North Pole” during their 9 minute voyage. "REAL(!)" mermaids actually swam in the lagoon for a brief period.
During the opening ceremonies, there was a water ballet of mermaids.

Does anyone here remember this attraction?

πŸ‘‹ Good morning sir! You're welcome! - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 8:39AM
Haha @ Walt saying "it's 10 feet too short". All the great pioneers seem to be perfectionists and he was no exception. - missmimi90  2002.4 #69 8:05AM
Exactly! πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 8:50AM
Thanks for the great post, Duchess! I just watched the video and "took a dive" on the submarines...that sea serpent was hilarious! Seeing that old video brought back memories, for sure. :) - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #562 8:13AM
::giggles:: right?! So funny! So glad you enjoyed your trip down memory lane! Hope you have a great day! - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 8:58AM
Happy friday to you too,thanks for these great days in history.I have to admit that ive never riden the Monorail though,its on my to-do list.And i need to try the left side of the matterhorn,the right side has one hard turn that feels like my pants rip everytime:( lol - bonedaddy909  1349.3 #114 8:17AM
You're so welcome! ::gasps:: WHAT?! You must try the monorail at LEAST once! Try to sit up front! So cool! Teehee, ripped pants at DL could be nice on a hot day, cool breeze like AC? ::giggles:: - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 9:37AM
Love it ! I know Walt also thought the Castle should have been bigger. It would not surprise me if John Lassiter try's to modernize both. Scrub the Autotopia and on that big footprint build a new ultra modern BIGGER Matterhorn. Then, build the most stunning new castle that would truly stand out as thee nicest of all Disney parks. If Walt was alive that would have been done already. - polo33  65.5 #4113 8:26AM
Ha! Now THOSE are some GRAND ideas! I could see Lassiter doing something like that in one of his movies! Teehee - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 11:11AM
Morning!πŸ˜ƒ Good read hon, loved going on a Sub ride this morning! - piratelife4me  988.1 #175 8:46AM

Thanks for this wonderful information. I did ride the original subs and as a little kid I really thought we were under water. - kskating  612.1 #309 9:14AM

Good morning! Awesome info! We love riding on the Monorail, so much fun! I haven't been on the Matterhorn since the refurb, I think it will kill my back. I remember riding on the old subs with my family many times. 😊 - MinnieMousewife  886.5 #188 9:19AM
Hi sweets! I've only gone on the new sleds once and I'll admit I miss the cuddle seats! I have a bad back and I miss using hubby's belly as a cushion! Lol you're right about the front of the monorail the best seat in the house! - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 2:39PM
Such amazing history. Thank you for taking the time to share all this history. I look forward to reading it everyday. - Tinkerbellmom4  412.2 #501 9:21AM
You're so welcome! I'm glad you like these! This one took a few hours of research so it means a lot for you to tell me you like them! :) - Duchess_SMK  6112.9 #15 2:40PM
Great History today. I love those rides! The sub not so much. I still have not been able to calm myself enough to go on. Closest I got was the observation deck and even that was very uncomfortable......one day.... - mini_MINNIE  1079.6 #159 9:24AM
I don't know why but I never rode the original subs.... I rode the Monorail last week. Love that I could hop on and ride to DTD for dinner then hop back on and get right back in DL. Great info! Thank you. - HalfCaff  437.9 #463 9:27AM
Wow great info for three great attractions! The Matterhorn was a very big deal for me and we knew we were finally there when we saw the snowy peaks and it was the tallest thing in the park. We couldn't contain our excitement anymore and my parents let us scream and yell and jump up and down in the car (no seat belts then) It was a thrilling ride that everyone loved! I have a home video that captured the real mermaids in the lagoon, I think I'll share it on the official TBT in the lounge, it was very cool to see them and of course I thought they were real!! Thanks so much for stirring up so many great memories today!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  866.1 #198 9:30AM
Good morning. Happy Friday! I enjoy riding the monorail it is fun to leave today and arrive in Tomorrowland. I ride often but have not been on since last week. The Matterhorn is cool... Hehe. The Matterhorn Bobsleds are always a must, Yeti are a big deal if you get a chance to see one you have to, you just have to. TIP: for the new sleds be sure to load your team into the sled biggest to smallest front to back it makes quite the difference (credit to ScubaSteve028 for first reporting this this tip... I think) I always forget which side is faster but I would choose that one if I remembered. Not the original submarine voyage but one of the few things I actually remember from childhood is 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea with my dearly departed Grandmother Adams. Did anyone else see a dog in the sub window? Awesome job putting this fleet of information together. Thank you Duchess. - GrumpyPirateDad  1845.9 #81 9:36AM
Sweet memory, I miss that one too! I did see the puppy!πŸ˜‚ - piratelife4me  988.1 #175 9:43AM

As a former Disney Submariner, thank you for posting! - BombFrogFormerCM  888.5 #185 11:01AM
Love all three of these attractions. I don't remember a lot from when I was little. I was Disney deprived. I do remember the subs and the City of Atlantis. Last week was the first time we got to ride in the front of the Monorail with the driver. And the Matterhorn is awesome except it gives me a headache sometimes. I still ride it - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1168.9 #139 11:02AM
That is a lot of openings. Thank you for sharing. Love all your history facts. - aprilinjune4  483.4 #408 1:30PM
All kinds of great history today! thank you :) That is pretty funny what Walt said about the Matterhorn. We thoroughly enjoy riding on the monorail- Front seat is the very best birds eye view of this magical place. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5498.9 #17 1:33PM
Awesome post about the monorail. A trip to the park is never complete for me without a ride on it. I especially like riding up front as you pass through the grand and also as your circle the Matterhorn. Last trip was just recently and the next trip will be in a couple months. Until then I will just have to play with the monorail playset I have at home. Thanks for all the great information in your posts. I love the history of the park as much as I love the park itself. I always enjoy reading your posts. One thing I do miss about the monorail is the monorail cafe at the disneyland hotel. I remember eating breakfast with the family there before beginning the day. Hope everyone has an amazing Friday! - junglecruise80  30.5 #5569 1:50PM
Great post with amazing info as always! Gets my day started off right :D - DisneyDawn  419.2 #491 1:53PM
What a very historic day at Disneyland! - BaseballMickey_CM  7103.5 #9 1:53PM
Great day in Disney history for sure!!! - PixiePirateMaid  331.6 #692 5:31PM
I did most of my Bobsled riding in the single car days. And yes, I remember those mermaids in the lagoon, and the underwater volcano. I enjoyed it all very much. Thank you, Duchess! Fun memories here! - MeridaFan  3578.6 #36 8:46PM

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

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 Aug 3, 2015
It's going to be HOT at Disneyland this week with weather in the high 80s. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 70s (approx 70% capacity), which is light for summer crowds. We expect it to be busier this week, however the hot weather does play a factor in crowd level as it tends to keep the locals away. 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 Aug 3, 2015 11:58AM



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  488.4 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7122 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  383.1 #555 7:32AM

I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1420 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4704.3 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.3 #10619 9:33AM
