Ok, this has to be one of the best Disneyland Historical videos I have ever seen from the opening year 1955. Th quality of this video is unreal and is a home movie taken and is in color. There are some unreal shots of Main Street, the Castle and lots of intrestings suprises you will see that I had to eevn pause and reewind back and make sure I wasnt seeing things. Another very intresting aspet of this video is you can see that a lot of the park was still under construction while the park was open. You see the storybook canals but no flowers, Casey Jr pretty much on wodden raisers fully exposed, and workers painting the Pirate ship in Fantasyland...Also the vieo features somthing that was not very well documented which was the phantom boats in Tomorrolwand! hope you enjoy this as much as I did

Sounds amazing! Let me grab some popcorn and get to it 😝 - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #136 10:28AM
Ah, this was awesome! Thanks Dave! Also, really interesting/ironic with the intro and choice of music. Made me feel... Hopeful to see all the images. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #136 10:36AM
This video is awesome, I saw this on MSN yesterday. Did you see the great video on EPCOT today (or what EPCOT should have been)? - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #158 10:30AM
I saw that one also, I love all things Epcot so I enjoyed watching it The coolest thing was that it had the attraction that never happened in it. The Living seas pavilon was supposed to have this attraction that was that went through a posiden adventure..it was scrapped and never built - Dave   12962.8 #2 12:32PM
It's sad to know what could have been. I could have been riding a dolphin under water. - MightyWhitey  1081.4 #158 1:13PM
This video is amazing! I love how Main Street still looks the same. When my dad was young he went to Disneyland around that time. It's great to compare what he saw as a child to what we see today. - DizPrincess_Sam  309.9 #799 10:40AM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

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

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here

And don't forget about Food! Check out our real-time Food blog to see what's new at the Resort. POST YOUR IDEAS BELOW and they could make the weekly top 5!

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 July 20, 2015

Since Disneyland's official birthday on Friday, we've seen an increase in crowd levels (currenly the MouseWait Crowd Index at 5pm Monday is showing 89, which is quite high). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the 80s. However, this year we are predicting mid-80s which means it should be busier. According to the weather report, it will get hot this weekend, which could lead to reduced crowds. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 20, 2015 6:05PM



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  487.8 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7108 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  381.2 #551 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  150.7 #2627 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  238.8 #1420 5:04PM
Yay to MouseWaiter kindness πŸ‘πŸ» - Dizkid  368.4 #577 11:40AM

Awesome! Can't wait! - PrincessDaisy  321.9 #741 8:33AM
It really surprises me that they didn't have Peter Pan finished by the time the Diamond Celebration started. I'm going next week and will be sad to miss it.  - RetroMinnie  55.2 #4371 10:06PM

Going to be in the park Dec. 29-Jan. 2. We've always been during the Summer and Spring so this will be our very first time there during the Holiday Season. What is the weather there like during Winter, what should Hubby and I be packing and what should I be packing for my two boys ages 8 and 9? I know the park is usually packed during the Holidays (from what I have read), would we still be able to park hop (we bought 5 days park hoppers) if we get our hands stamped? TIA. =) - MaryinVancouver888  5.3 #16513 4:17AM
