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  1175.7 #162 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  1175.7 #162 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)? - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #178 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   13820.4 #4 12:32PM
It's sad to know what could have been. I could have been riding a dolphin under water. - NickDoubleyew  1094.1 #178 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  321.7 #838 10:40AM

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 #333 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7523 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  446.1 #522 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  182.4 #2290 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  291.7 #1027 5:04PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.6 #76166 12:12PM
