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 #251 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 #274 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 #251 2:00PM
Hard to find someone that knows what that was. It really was beautiful. - snowwannab  759.0 #274 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

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  216.8 #1854 11:37AM

I got to experience the skyway to fantasyland several times. Wish I would have taken pictures of the amazing view. - Witchie77  390.3 #615 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  355.6 #702 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 #379 10:18AM
I rode the gondolas years ago. You can still see the remnants of the station in the corner above Fantasyland - CoachSteve  187.8 #2231 10:19AM
Oh I remember going to the Tahitian Terrace..!!! Anyone else? - carminaire  887.3 #221 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  1951.3 #94 11:32AM
I miss the skyway! - BombFrogFormerCM  1072.2 #188 1:00PM
Was just thinking about the skyway last weekend. My mini would have loved it. Thanks for the info. - antetr95  2140.1 #80 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 #3758 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 #842 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 #2115 5:17PM

I don't understand why it was changed in the first place. The area was closed down and rebranded as Grizzly Peak Airfield to be more cohesive with the "California" theme of the park and then they change the ride from Soarin Over California; which is sticking pretty close to the theme of the park; to Soarin Over The World? It just doesn't make sense to me. I understand updating the video itself, which is what I wish they had done.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 7:03PM

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  8069.1 #11 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2965.2 #50 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  892.7 #220 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  271.1 #1220 6:54PM

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 June 2016
Last month (May) seemed to be quieter than last year, probably because the 60th Celebration began last May, making last summer a lot busier. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the mid 80s (approx 85% capacity) for the first two weeks of June, then it quieted down in the last two weeks of the month. We are estimating smaller crowds than last summer because the 60th Celebration is over a year old, and there are still a lot of attractions being refurbished. 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 Jun 3, 2016 12:07PM



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  643.7 #336 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7592 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  451.5 #523 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  183.5 #2291 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  293.0 #1025 5:04PM
There was nobody there last week on Saturday loved it Hope it's the same this week  - jkobelski  34.1 #0 9:48PM
August 17 - It was still crowded yesterday, though it starts emptying out about 9 pm since some schools are in session and others are watching PTN. These are your last week's to watch PTN and the current WOC, and the 60th fireworks nightly show. Take advantage on a weeknight if you can. And on week nights, the jazz band plays several sets up until 10:15 pm on the Matk Twain and alternate with sets while cruising the ROA on a tom sawyers raft. We saw the band on the river at 10:40 Tuesday night. Market house is closed at night for coffee, the closest coffee after park hours is Starbucks DD/ WOD. or coffee bean in Haggen Dazs DD Β  ice cream Β store till midnight.Β  - secretagentangel  8069.1 #11 1:41PM
