Good afternoon & Happy Fathers Day to all the MW Dads! This day in Disney history, June 16th, 1956: Tom Sawyer Island & the Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island in Frontierland open. Guests can visit the island, surrounded by the Rivers of America, by traveling on a motorized raft which is piloted by a Disneyland cast member (one of the few vehicles NOT on a track). The Island was shut-down February 5, 2007 for the $28 million addition of “Pirate’s Lair at Tom Sawyer Island.” Unveiling date was May 25, 2007. Have you been on the island?
Also on this same day, The film "3D Jamboree" @ the Mickey Mouse Club Theater premiers. The short 3D Jamboree features the famous Mouseketeers & their leader Jimmy Dodd. The presentation includes the animated shorts "Melody" and "Working for Peanuts" all in 3D. Anyone remember this? I couldn't find much info on it.
In addition, Storybook Land Canal Boats (originally known as Canal Boats of the World in 1955) opened in Fantasyland! Four Mouseketeers (Darlene, Lonnie, Sharon, & Bobby) joined a half dozen other children as the American Dairy Princess christened the boats w/a pint of milk poured over the hulls. The attraction features 13 boats (powered by outboard motors) Which are scaled-down replicas of Dutch, English, & French boats, named after female Disney characters (except for Flower) Original 13 Storybook Boat Names: Cinderella, Daisy, Aurora, Alice, Faline, Flora, Fauna, Flower, Katrina, Merryweather, Wendy, Snow White, & Tinkerbell. Belle & Ariel were later additions. Anyone know which part of this attraction was once used as a ticket booth? Find the answer in the photo below. ;)
Lastly, in 1957: Holidayland, a land that existed for only five years, a nine-acre grassy picnic ground located along the western edge of Disneyland, opened. It had its own admission gate into the park & could hold up to 7,000 guests, for large events. Run by Milt Albright, Holidayland's manager (& future Disney Legend), it featured a regulation softball diamond, horseshoe pits and volleyball court, Holidayland featured—direct from its starring role in Disneyland’s Mickey Mouse Club Circus—the “world’s largest candy-striped circus tent.” At first dubbed “Holiday Park,” the picnic & special events area was originally planned for a woodsy area between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, but ended up just outside the berm, near Frontierland. (Today, Holidayland is a parking lot for employees.) Holidayland closed in 1961 due to its lack of shade, nighttime lighting, restrooms, & alleged lack of Disney "flavor". For a more info & photos from Holidayland: http://tinyurl.com/ku5c2xr I'm thinking this would have made a fabulous MW meetup location. ::giggles:: Had you heard of this attraction?
Thanks, as always, for reading! :) Hope you all have a GREAT rest of the day! :)

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
