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 #159 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 #159 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 #176 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 #176 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  319.1 #840 10:40AM
love it! - GoofyMom77  976.7 #196 10:45AM

just saw that costco has this service, they sent me a coupon!!!! though if they are really special, I would have a pro shop do it, just in case. if you go to costco watch out for honey badgers!! - secretagentangel  6905.2 #17 11:08PM
SAA, do you mind telling me how much it was? We are in the process of trying to go through my grandparents 8MM footage for the documentary we're doing and I'm trying to see if it's cost effective to get them transferred over. :) - MissMolly  1386.7 #134 1:00PM

I saw this on MSN yesterday. It truly is the best video I have ever seen of that time. It brought back so many memories of pulling right up to the gates. My husband was there in 1957, so he enjoyed seeing it like he remembered it as a kid. - snowwannab  759.0 #264 1:02PM

Every day was Dapper Day! I think I am going to go cry now. Makes me think of my grandparents and when I was a little girl and going to Disneyland with my whole family.

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  643.2 #330 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.6 #7482 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  442.1 #517 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  176.8 #2350 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 5:04PM

14 more days and I shall be entering in wait times for the first time( I was slow and shy to post). Well actually it will be 15 days. The first  day we check in and go to Trader Sam's. πŸ˜‰ - varela2892  64.0 #4433 7:14AM
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  6905.2 #17 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2764.8 #54 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  771.6 #257 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  245.1 #1462 6:54PM

I think one of you were just ahead of me today.  Most of the rides had the right wait time posted so they didnt need updating. - sallen848  186.7 #2218 10:51PM
Go ahead and update it as admin needs them posted as current time as possible. You can have ten people with you inputting times themselves and it still helps the app! (As long as all are on their own account I should clarify)😍 thanks for doing wait times, it helps us all!! - secretagentangel  6905.2 #17 1:19PM
