Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 23rd, 1956: The Skyway to Fantasyland & Skyway to Tomorrowland begins transporting guests across the park.

Walt heard of a system being tested in Switzerland in 1955 & of course HAD to have one! After figuring out where the attraction would be placed in the park, he purchased a used 1947 Type 101 Sidechair #5, which was one of the Von Roll prototypes who was based in Bern, Switzerland. When Walt & the imagineers bought the ride, it became the 1st Von Roll aerial ropeway in the USA.

Walt, & Dr Walter Smidt, the Swiss Consul General of Los Angeles presided over the opening ceremonies. 42 gondolas carried 2 guests @ a time over the park. They were dispatched at about every 9 seconds & moved @ 4 mph. The Skyway gave guests an overview of the park between two stations: one in Fantasyland (where the drive system was located) & the other in Tomorrowland (where 35,000 pounds of ballast kept the 2400' long cables taut). In between was the peak, a support tower located on Holiday Hill (basically a mound of dirt, which later became the Matterhorn). In 1959 after the Matterhorn was added, guests rode through it!

Did YOU ever ride the Skyway? What did you think of it?

Also on this day in 1963: The Enchanted Tiki Room (a favorite for my minis) opened to the public in Adventureland! It was the 1st attraction to cost $1million+, first fully air-conditioned building & 1st to feature Audio-Animatronics developed by WED Enterprises. United Airlines was the 1st official sponsor, but later changed to Dole. Originally owned by Walt Disney (through WED Enterprises) it was to be a restaurant featuring AA birds serenading guests as they dined. The “magic fountain” was to be a coffee station (a storage compartment remains in the base) and the restaurant would have shared its kitchen with the now-defunct Tahitian Terrace (for more info about the terrace: http://tinyurl.com/mts76t7
& Plaza Pavilion Restaurant. Since ownership was separate from the rest of the park, a small admission of 75¢ was charged.

José is red, white, & green & speaks w/a Mexican accent (Wally Boag)
Michael is white & green w/ an Irish brogue (Fulton Burley)
Pierre is red, white, & blue & has a French accent (Ernie Newton)
Fritz red, black, & white has a German accent (Thurl Ravenscroft, voice of Hawaiian God Tangaroa-Ru near the entrance)

The birds all have real feathers w/ the exception of the chest area which is covered in custom-woven cashmere, allowing the figures to “breathe” in a lifelike manner (inspired by an employee at a planning meeting who wore a cashmere sweater which moved at the elbows exactly the way the engineers envisioned). To watch a few clips of historical footage from the Tiki Room: http://tinyurl.com/mkt2bcx

225+ talking, singing, & dancing birds, flowers, the magic fountain, tiki drummers & tiki totem poles make this attraction a MUST SEE in my opinion. Hopefully all you lucky people in the park will stop by for a dole whip and birthday performance today!

Have you been in the Tiki Room? Do have a favorite song or part of the show?

Again you have stirred some amazing memories! The Tiki room was a must do as a child...my mom loved it; dad not so much - too much sitting! I went through a long period of time where it was a "meh" attraction. Only went if it was hot or I was tired. But lately, especially after going with folks who have never experienced it I am enjoying it much more. As for the Skyway - I miss it! It was a definite must do every visit. My dad and I got stuck on it once, halfway to the Matterhorn from Fantasyland. Someone had fallen against the emergency shut off switch, so we heard. We were up there about 45 min and my mother ( on the ground!) was frantic. But I loved it! Just watching the crowds, the skyline and being with my dad alone in such a magical place was wonderful. We sang Disney songs to pass the time and he occasionally would threaten to swing it. Everytime I walk by the somewhat hidden Fantasyland station, I smile at the memories. - Gia  802.0 #237 1:29PM
My father used to sing, act and whistle professionally. His teacher was Marion Darlington, who is credited as doing many of the bird whistles in the Tiki Room. She also did the bird noises for Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi and many others. She was Alice's crying voice in Alice in Wonderland. I never met her, but my father talked about her a lot. I think she was instrumental in helping my dad get jobs. She accompanied my father and his family to Yosemite, where he sang and whistled during the fire fall they used to do at the Ahwanhnee Hotel. So, the Tiki Room brings back memories of my dad, as she taught him many of the bird calls and whistles from the movies she did. Every time we went in the Tiki Room, we had to hear the story of Marion Darlington. It got old, but now I appreciate the history so much. - snowwannab  759.0 #259 1:57PM
That's fascinating!! I'm lucky to be old enough to have seen the Fire Falls at Yosemite. Such a beautiful sight. - Gia  802.0 #237 2:00PM
Hard to find someone that knows what that was. It really was beautiful. - snowwannab  759.0 #259 2:04PM
Oh how I miss the Skyway! That was one of our favorite experiences at our happy place... And, would you believe, Jack and Kate loved this too! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰β€ #deadliestcastmember #jackandkate - MrsPrinceCharming 10:21AM
Is Admin going to write any more of these?? Waiting for more, they're so fun to read! 😊 - FrozenMommy  58.0 #4581 1:40PM
Yes! Episode 5 will be released very soon! I think it's his best one yet!! Then 6 will be released shortly after that! 😊 - MrsPrinceCharming  4:39PM
I remember, as a child, being gutted that it had started raining while we were in the show and how that was going to ruin our Disney day. Then, the pleasant surprise of there being no rain outside! - Zipadeedoodah  215.5 #1845 11:37AM

I got to experience the skyway to fantasyland several times. Wish I would have taken pictures of the amazing view. - Witchie77  381.9 #606 10:14AM
The Skyway!! Loved it! I miss it even. I have heard of tragedy on this ride. And understand why they aren't using it anymore. But was nice to go through the Matterhorn and see all the people in the park walking around. And a happy birthday to the tiki tiki tiki tiki room! - PixiePirateMaid  355.2 #680 10:17AM
If I rode Skyway when I was younger, I wouldn't remember, lol. But I did get to see it on display at the Club 33 Oktoberfest and take a picture with one! It was awesome. Oh and of course I love the Enchanted Tiki room.. dole whip float in hand! Any time I go in there, the song gets stuck in my head ALL day so I limit the times I go in there xD Those dole whip floats though.. soooo yummy. - Jacqueline  580.0 #362 10:18AM
I rode the gondolas years ago. You can still see the remnants of the station in the corner above Fantasyland - CoachSteve  153.3 #2709 10:19AM
Oh I remember going to the Tahitian Terrace..!!! Anyone else? - carminaire  843.8 #223 11:29AM
Good morning. I don't believe I ever rode the skyway. We were living in San Diego and my folks would say "we can ride that at the zoo" and would pick something else for us to do(I'm sure that's why I'm so nice)ha I really enjoy the Tiki Room and visit often. Will have to go for a birthday show today I think too. My favorite part is when Tikis play the drums. Thank you Duchess - GrumpyPirateDad  1938.8 #92 11:32AM
I miss the skyway! - BombFrogFormerCM  1028.5 #188 1:00PM
Was just thinking about the skyway last weekend. My mini would have loved it. Thanks for the info. - antetr95  2082.4 #78 1:14PM
I remember the Skyway well! I loved going through the Matterhorn as a small kid, and also the people-watching below. I had never been into the Tiki Room in 30+ years of going to Disneyland, but finally saw the show about a year ago with my 2 kids and loved it! - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3717 4:57PM
I have always had a love for the Tiki Room. Now that I have minis, it's even more magical! - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #815 5:10PM
I loved the skyway, too, especially where it went through the Matterhorn. The Matterhorn was my favorite ride, but it was closed for a few trips in a row, so the next best thing was riding the skyway through it. - coffeesnob  196.4 #2082 5:17PM

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 month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. 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 May 9, 2016 5:42PM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127412 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6371.8 #21 8:10PM
