 Best Post of the Day 4-10-14
Good morning! This day in Disneyland history, April 10th, 1988: at the end of the day, Disneyland's "America Sings", housed in The Carousel Theater, (operating since June 1974) closes in Tomorrowland.

America Sings was a 24 minute patriotic musical production that included a cast of over 100 Audio Animatronic characters! Enter one of six identical theaters, and have a seat. Sam the Eagle, with the voice of Burl Ives, will be your host as your theater rotates around a central axis in six stops. The two-level building, only used the lower floor. The PeopleMover trains passed through the SuperSpeed Tunnel on the upper floor.

To watch the show:



According to yesterland.com:
The first big act takes place in a swamp in the Deep South...


The Swamp Boys sing “Polly Wolly Doodle.”

The denizens of the swamp sing “Down by the Riverside.”

The geese sing “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad.”

The second big act is set on a moonlit plain of the Old West...

Saddlesore Swanson sings “The Old Chisholm Trail.”

The third big act is performed in a 1890's ballroom...
Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay!

The final big act takes place in a back alley of a twentieth-century city and finally after reprising “Yankee Doodle” one last time, Sam the Eagle urges you and everyone else in the audience to join in for “Auld Lang Syne.” You’re back in a simple theater that looks similar to the one you first entered, but it’s actually the exit theater. The show is over. Exit from the Carousel Theater to a jazzy version of “Stars and Stripes Forever.” (all songs titles and photos are from yesterland.com to read the lyrics click here)

After a run of almost 14 years, twice as long as it predecessor (The Carousel of Progress). America Sings closed permanently April 10th, 1988.  In 1989, almost all the critters from America Sings were moved to Critter Country and Splash Mountain. This Splash Mountain porcupine ( pictured on the bottom right of the main photo below) was once a drummer in America Sings. According to BBM, “some of the ducks animatronics are in IASW” as well.

The Carousel Theater will be used as office space for the next ten years before finally being replaced by Innoventions in 1998.

 Do you remember this attraction? What did you think of it? Did you have a favorite song? Or maybe a character?

Thanks so much for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!

Hoping to see lots of photos from the It's A Small World celebration today! Which by the way, was created by WED Enterprises in record time for the 1964 New York World's Fair. Then moved and re-built at Disneyland after the World's Fair closed in 1966. It opened in Disneyland May 28th, 1966. I'm sure a few of you were confused how it could be 50 years, so there you have it. ;)  I'll have to make a special post about it in May for it's birthday at Disneyland. :)

I remember this fondly, though I only went on it once. I think I liked it so much because I love those old songs- when I was younger, my parent's cars never seemed to have radios (I cannot imagine life without sirius xmπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) so we always sang- among them were a few of these songs. Thanks so much for posting this – I will watch the video later when I have a little more time. I am also looking very forward to IASW today!! 😘 - misschurro  7466.4 #12 7:57AM
😳 I know how you love your tunes churro! That must have been torturous! πŸ˜‚ hope you enjoy the videos! Oh and also hope you get to ride IASW! 😍 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 1:25PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚it was all we knew, happy memories😊😊 - misschurro  7466.4 #12 2:03PM
Great history post! - Admin 10:20AM
Sigh. I miss many of the old attractions. - jacdanfan  12152.8 #6 6:50AM
😊 indeed there were some good ones!  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 8:00AM
I love your history lessons.  - WishIWereThere  304.5 #929 7:28AM
D'awe! I'm so happy to hear that! Thank you!  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 8:00AM
Another great post! Thank you! - goofydad909  1997.3 #90 7:41AM
😊 thank you! So happy you enjoyed it! πŸ‘ - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 9:28AM
I remember this!  It was a great place to go and cool off!  My grandparents would take us to DL every summer and this was Grandmas favorite.  Wasn't there a "Pop goes the weasel" part.  That always had me giggling.   - AZDisney  610.5 #349 7:51AM
I didn't get to enjoy it myself, but others have indeed confirmed there was a "pop goes the weasel" part! 😊good memory!  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 11:52AM
Thanks as always for your very informative posts! - DreadPiratesRogers  852.9 #227 7:56AM
Thanks for letting me know you enjoy them! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 1:23PM
I remember this! I thought it was neat how the audience rotated around the stages, rather than the stages moving!  My favorite character was the weasel who said, "pop goes the weasel," and I would always be looking for him to show up and not really pay attention to the rest of the show, lol!  Thanks for another great history lesson, @Duchess_SMK!  And it was so great to meet you last weekend, although I wish we could have had more time to chat! - zenderella  408.9 #571 8:29AM
I remember that guy! - phillip...  1368.9 #137 9:19AM
Seems like that weasel was white popular! ☺️ Thanks for sharing that! Yes! Loved meeting you! Sorry I didn't get more time with you! Hopefully in May at the meetup we can hang more! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 1:27PM
Yes! Have fond memories of it growing up, enjoying it with my Grandparents. That and the Country Bear Jamboree were my Grandpas favorites.  - DisneylandOrBust  480.0 #0 8:47AM
πŸ‘ that's so neat! Did you have a favorite song from the attraction?  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 1:28PM
I loved America Sings , but the red, white and blue polyester jumpsuit was see flu to wear in the summer when you were outside...thank god for the air conditioner inside the attraction! - BombFrogFormerCM  1062.7 #182 8:50AM
πŸ˜³πŸ™ˆπŸ˜ see through you say? Oh wow! πŸ˜‚ That building does have quite the amazing cooling system! One of our favorite places to cool off and escape the crowds!  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 1:29PM
Oh how I hate "auto correct"...  Yes the costumes were see-thru in that some showed if you were wearing an undershirt for the guys (not to mention if you wore boxes vs briefs), the ladies had it worse though...plus the costumes didn't breathe so it was a sweat feat if you were outside for any period of time - BombFrogFormerCM  1062.7 #182 3:10PM
I figured that's what you meant. ::giggles:: man, I'm over grated just reading that! Poor cms!  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 6:58PM
The best costumes in the late '80s were Star Tours, Space Mountain and People Mover/Jets/Mars... - BombFrogFormerCM  1062.7 #182 7:24PM
That's why I enjoy Splash Mountain more than my kids do. Β Although they love that ride, it has a special meaning for me. - potatohead25  801.2 #242 9:10AM
Yesssss! Not everyone gets that. America sings reminds me of the times we used to go to DL with my dad. And splash mountain reminds me of that - phillip...  1368.9 #137 9:20AM
Cool. - potatohead25  801.2 #242 9:26AM
πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ awe! Such special memories!  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 6:59PM
I miss this attraction😒 Thanks for the post! - ElectricMayhemMom  1631.0 #110 9:14AM
Awe! Don't be sad! ((Hugs))  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:01PM
I @MissAmericaSings - phillip...  1368.9 #137 9:21AM
We loved going to this as a family, such memories for me!!  I'm having a really rough morning so I took the time to stop and watch this.  It really made me smile, thanks as always for these awesome history posts!!   - MinnieMousewife  916.7 #210 9:33AM
So sorry to hear you had a rough morning! Overjoyed to hear this made you smile! Makes the time spent worth it! ((Hugs)) hope you're feeling better! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:19PM
Thank you, feeling much better tonight!! 😘 - MinnieMousewife  916.7 #210 9:20PM
I miss this ride SO much and have so many fond memories of it. It was a classic up there with Country Bear Jamboree in my opinion. Truly missed πŸ’œπŸŒΊ - apesandmonkeys  6523.5 #20 9:37AM
😊 well hopefully the videos healed a little. 😘  - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:20PM
This closed when I was 1, but I had a soundtrack of the attraction, and I love it so very much. Wish I could remember seeing it. I know I did, just can't remember it lol. I'm glad they repurposed the animatronics in an attraction that is very well-known and loved! - BriHizzle  374.8 #631 10:10AM
😊 I don't think many one year olds would remember. Don't be too hard on yourself. 😘 yes! Nice to see them still hangin round! 😊 - Duchess_SMK  6535.3 #19 7:21PM
Thank you for sharing.. I loved this attraction as a kid.. I was 5 when this attraction closed but I still have fond memories going on with my family.. I remember when I saw that close attraction sign,  I always hoped it would return. But glad I have splash mountain to relive my childhood. - MickeyEyeAdore  33.1 #5909 10:46AM
I never got to see this, as my first visit was a year after it closed, but I wish I had. Thank you so much for the videos! I am glad that they kept the animals and found a new home for them in Splash Mountain - it wouldn't be the same without them! I also wouldn't mind if they put something like this back where Innoventions is, but I guess this type of show isn't the wave of the future! - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #346 10:53AM
Wow love this!!  Thanks! - HauntedMansionDiva  309.4 #903 11:00AM
It was one of the best attractions. When you first sat down in it and the first time it moved to the next set it was more thrilling than a roller coaster because of the anticipation.  - Midasgold  633.3 #337 12:16PM
I loved this attraction..thanks ☺ - poppins  33.9 #5831 12:51PM
I miss this attraction terribly --- My kid would flip over this attraction, doubt anything in the Parks today would come close. - Grindcore  568.8 #380 1:46PM
Seeing the video was fantastic!  Its amazing how much was familiar.  I love that so many of those are in my favorite- Splash Mtn! - MoonWillow  381.3 #617 3:31PM
Thank you for all the Disney history. - BAO1953  22.5 #7189 6:39PM
I had no idea that those splash characters were initially from another attraction. Love learning these things.  - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  538.4 #408 7:14PM
Thanks for the memories! :) - Ericksenator  377.9 #624 7:58PM
Great post! I had forgotten how much I loved singing all the songs!!!!! Thank you for the walk down memory lane! You do a great job! - Boundin  792.9 #245 9:00PM
Another great look at the past!  And another good ride. - redsoxcarlos  3340.9 #46 9:34PM
Wish we could see this again!  Great post. I will watch the video tomorrow. Thank you!  πŸ˜˜ - MeridaFan  4244.2 #37 10:30PM
Ooooo how I miss this😭 I remember it like it was yesturday. As a kid I loved clapping and enjoying every moment. It's sad that I can't share this with my kids but thank goodness for YouTube (not the same but hey). I'm happy to see some of my friends in Splash Mountain. Maybe that's why I like Splash so much πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  1143.9 #167 10:43PM
Miss this. My parents brought me to this every visit! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1191.2 #156 11:06PM
My mother remembers this and tells me this was a pretty cool show. Thanks for the post :D - MissAlice  343.5 #725 11:49PM
I might have when I was 2, but I didn't go back until I was almost 11, which was summer 1988, after it closed.  - bluefairy  643.8 #329 4:13PM

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 #7487 11:53PM

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  64.2 #4430 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  6921.0 #17 9:06PM
Half of my points are from wait times.  - Goofytom  2766.6 #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 #258 7:07AM
Pretty much all my points are from wait times  - kimo  255.3 #1414 6:54PM

Good job!!   - Ilovegoofy  76.2 #4118 10:28AM
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  186.9 #2220 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  6921.0 #17 1:19PM
