Thanks for posting live Disneyland pictures and news in the Lounge!
Good morning! This day in Disney history, August 27th:"Reason and Emotion" was released, The Mickey Mouse Club Theater opened in Fantasyland and Mary Poppins had it's world premier!
1943: "Reason and Emotion", directed by Bill Roberts is released.
Animated by Ward Kimball and Ollie Johnson, Reason and Emotion is a propaganda short created during World War II. It studies the connection between the mind and emotions. The cartoon humorously demonstrates this by taking viewers inside the animated heads of various people, to depict the primitive and caveman-like “Emotion” and the proper and intellectual “Reason.”
Can any of you relate? I know I can! ::reaches for my glass of water:: I MUST stay away from those doughnuts staring at me from the counter! ::giggles::
Also on this day in 1955: The Mickey Mouse Club Theater opens in Disneyland's Fantasyland.
It was the official Disneyland headquarters of the Mousketeers until 1963. An air conditioned theater where you could watch Disney cartoons. On June 16th, 1956, 3D Jamboree debuted there in color! A 3D film with the mouseketeers introducing the short films Melody and Working for Peanuts.
In 1964, the name changed to the Fantasyland Theater. It closed in 1982 (along with most other original Fantasyland attractions) for the New Fantasyland project. In 1983, it became Pinocchio’s Daring Journey.
Anyone here remember these attractions?
And lastly for today in 1964: my very favorite Disney movie, Mary Poppins has it's gala World Premier at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
The premiere was broadcast live on Los Angeles television, with a separate radio broadcast of the festivities. Some of of Hollywoods most famous stars and guests atteneded including: Maureen O'Hara, James Franciscus, Celeste Holm, Walter Slezack, the cast of the Dick Van Dyke Show, Agnes Moorehead, Annette Funicello and her fiancé Jack Gilardi, Roddy McDowall, Suzanne Pleshette, Carol Lynley, Buddy Ebsen, Kathryn Grayson, Ann Miller, and Brian Keith, George Hamilton, Angela Lansbury, Debbie Reynolds, Angie Dickinson, and Carl Reiner among others. After the screening, there was a five minute standing ovation and the guests attended a lavish after party hosted by Technicolor.
Mary Popppins will go on to win Academy Awards for Best Film Editing, Best Original Score, Best Song AND Best Special Visual Effects!
To watch an AMAZING video with scenes from the premier:
Do you have a favorite scene from Mary Poppins?

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
Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016 Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. 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 Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM
