Good morning and TGIF! This day in Disney history, July 26th, 1955: LOOK magazine features Walt Disney and actor Fess Parker, dressed as Davy Crockett, on the cover.

The cover promises stories about Walt, Davy and Disneyland. Oh, and the truth about the Salk polio vaccine, and a new diet, as if the subjects seemed to go together?

I particularly enjoyed reading the eight page article about Walt, which starts on page 29 written by Arthur Gordon. He talks about Walts passion for Disneyland; his endless optimism, family life, stories from his upbringing, the development of Oswald, Mortimer, Mickey & even how he met Lillian….

"When Walt's position in Kansas City became desperate, he borrowed a camera, went around taking pictures of babies until he had a little cash. Then he bought a ticket to Los Angeles to join Roy, who was trying to make a living selling vacuum cleaners. With $500 of borrowed capital, the brothers rented the back end of a real-estate office for $5 a month and started turning out a series of shorts for a distributor in New York.

 They hired two girls to help them, at $15 a week. one of the girls, Lillian Bounds, found this pittance so small that sometimes she did not even bother to cash her paycheck. This endeared her greatly to Roy, who was handling such finances as there were. He kept urging Walt to use his charm to persuade the lady to cash even fewer checks. Walt was willing-and in the process fell in love with Lilly and married her."

How cute is THAT?!

Another favorite excerpt? Sure, twist my arm….This was after Walt and Roy had just shown Steam Boat Willie to it's first audience (Their wives), while they blew whistles, horns and banged tin cans behind them.

"How was that? "How was what?" said the wives, who, knowing their husbands were crazy anyway, had thought it best to disregard the noise.
 Despite callous reception, Walt got a mortgage on his house, talked Roy into mortgaging his house too and raised enjoy money for synchronization. All told, Steamboat Willie cost the terrifying sum of $1,200; even Walt's cherished Moon roadster had to be converted to cash. But this was the turning point. Almost overnight, the man-made mouse became an international celebrity. From then on, Disney was a mouse-made man. Even today, out of all his creations, Mickey is closest to Walt's heart. When he wants to hour someone signally, he sends them a "mouse car", a statuette of Mickey the is Disney's equivalent of an Academy Award."

Page 36 is where you'll read about Davy Crockett. Fess Parker really seemed like a neat man. In my opinion, a real American Icon!

Davy Crockett captivated millions of young viewers. His portrayal of the character had them hooked on frontier adventure, coonskin caps and Indian wars. There was somewhat of a "Davy-mania" happening this year which translated into Davy merchandise such as; clothes, books games and toys flying off the shelves. 5,000 coonskin caps sold daily!

Did you or do you own a coonskin cap? What did you think of those adds? HA! My, how things have changed!

Thanks as always for reading! Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!

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 week of Monday, March 9, 2015:

Park Hours: DL: 9am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-12am (Friday-Sunday). DCA: 9am-9pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-10pm (Friday-Sunday). 

Taste Pilots Grill in DCA will reopen as Smokejumpers Grill on March 13 as apart of the new-themed area, Grizzly Air Field. 

Attraction Closures: Critter Country (opens 4/3), Fortuosity Jewelry Shop (opens 3/13), Magic Eye Theater (TBD), Matterhorn (opens 5/16), Peter Pan (opens 5/8), Snow White Grotto (opens 5/1), Starcade (TBD), Soarin over California (opens 5/15), Grizzly River Run (opens 3/20), Luigi's Flying Tires (2016), World of Color (TBD). 

unForecast Crowd Prediction: This week is the unofficial start of the Spring Break crowds, so expect the parks to be a little more crowded than normal. Also with only one showing of Fantasmic during the week, expect FPs for the show to go quickly along with it being crowded around the Rivers of America close to showtime. Throughout the week, expect CIs to be in the high 60s to low 80s for Disneyland Park and in the low 70s to low 80s for DCA. 

Have a great week!

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  372.2 #556 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6887 11:53PM
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  117.1 #3152 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  218.1 #1663 5:04PM
Thanks for these updates. I love them!  - Dizkid  359.4 #586 6:07PM
It's Dance the Magic this weekend-always adds to the crowds too!!! - TinkerSchelle  1429.6 #98 8:23PM
What is dance the magic?? - bks4lou  178.9 #2164 4:40PM
Dance studios sign up and dancers come and do a little "pre-parade" along the route. It's cute ;) - TinkerSchelle  1429.6 #98 1:05PM
@bks4lou sorry-I just saw this question ;) - TinkerSchelle  1429.6 #98 1:06PM
thank you. No worries. I just figured out how to find my old comments to see replies :)  - bks4lou  178.9 #2164 8:21PM
