 Best Post of the Day 6-14-14
Can't sleep so....Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 14th, 1958 Alice in Wonderland opened in Fantasyland. In addition, in 1959: three major attractions were christened!  The Monorail, The Matterhorn Bobsleds and The Submarine Voyage!  

1958:
Alice and Wonderland was the only Fantasyland dark ride built between the park's opening and the redesign of Fantasyland in 1983, when Pinocchio's Daring Journey premiered. The presence of two rides based on the film is unusual in that Walt Disney said he regretted making it because it “lacked a connection to the audience's hearts.” ::gasps:: I whole heartily disagree! I LOVE Alice! How about you?  For some reason Alice was never duplicated at any other park, making Disneylands even more special!

As previoulsy mentioned in 1983, Alice was updated as part of an overall refurbishment of Fantasyland, as the Upside-Down and Oversized Rooms were eliminated and the Mad Hatter's unbirthday scene was moved to the very end of the ride. A new narration track by Kathryn Beaumont, the original voice of Alice, was recorded. To create more unified theming in Fantasyland, the Mad Tea Party attraction was relocated at the rear of Fantasyland to a spot adjacent to the Alice in Wonderland ride that same year.  Alice in Wonderland, however, did not reopen until 1984, one year after the rest of the new Fantasyland opened.

I don’t know about you but I can’t WAIT until Alice reopens! Do you have a favorite scene from this attraction?

Moving along, 1959: The opening of the ALWEG Monorail Mark I.  The day was celebrated with a dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting that included the then Vice President Nixon and his family.

At this time the Monorail ran on a .8 mile track around Tomorrowland. It was the first daily-operating monorail train system in the Western Hemisphere. The German ALWEG company developed a working monorail prototype, which caught Disney’s eye in 1957. He worked out a deal with ALWEG in which his designers would develop a monorail using ALWEG’s basic design as the starting point.

Bob Gurr, designed Disneylands' version, a sleek train with a rocket-ship nose, stainless steel side panels, and the famous front bubble top. The Disneyland Monorail’s appearance was a completely different from the plain, functional design of ALWEG’s prototype (or ALWEG’s later Seattle Monorail, built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair).

To watch a short clip with Disney Legend Bob Gurr on Creating the Disneyland Monorail:


In June of 1961, the Monorail track was extended to 2 1/2 miles, Disneyland Hotel guests were then able to board the Monorail at the hotel and begin their park visit in Tomorrowland.

Do you like the Monorial? When was the last time you were on it?

Also on this same day in Disneyland, The Matterhorn Bobsleds, opened!

matterhorn

Modeled after the Matterhorn, a real mountain in the Swiss Alps it is the 1st roller coaster to use cylindrical rails and urethane wheels (standard in the roller coaster industry today). Built by coaster builder, Arrow Dynamics and WED Imagineering.

The mountain was originally a dirt mound created from what was removed to make the moat around Sleeping Beauty Castle. First named Holiday Hill and then Lookout Mountain, Park Operations staff continually had to keep a look out due to its unofficial status as “Lover’s Lane.” Teehee..

The Matterhorn was conceived by Walt during two trips he made to Switzerland. Walt wanted to figure out a way to hide the unsightly Skyway pylon, what better then a 147' high mountain?

Supposedly, Walt sent a postcard featuring the Matterhorn back to the states with the caption, “Build this.” Walt was discouraged by Joe Fowler when he wanted to “make some snow and have a toboggan ride.” Difficulties in creating the snow and drainage were solved by using steel, wood, plaster, and paint. Disneylands Matterhorn is a 1/100th replica of its Swiss namesake and the tallest structure inside Disneyland. What was Walt’s response when he first saw the completed attraction? Legend has it that he said, “It’s 10' too short.” HA!

I found a couple construction photos for you, thanks Daveland!

It wasn't until 1977/1978 that the Matterhorn was refurbished to add the Yeti (Harold) and instead of being 1 car, 2 cars were joined, which basically doubled the attraction's capacity.

To watch a clip from the opening ceremony:


Do you like this attraction? Do you have a favorite side, and why?

In addition, The Submarine Voyage, is officially dedicated (even though it's been open since June 6th).

According to Disney Parks blog: “Following an introduction by Admiral Charles C. Kirkpatrick, Mrs. Mildred Nelson, wife of the chief machinist on the the first nuclear-powered submarine, USS Nautilus, christens sub D-301, appropriately also named “Nautilus.””

subs christining

Another E ticket attraction, the Subs cost $2.5 million dollars to create. 38 Riders were able to enter the 8 half-submerged mini-submarines at a time. Each 52' long sub cost about $80,000 to build were each 52 feet long, weighed 94,000 pounds, and could go about 1.7 miles per hour!

The Disney-designed subs were built at Todd Shipyards in San Pedro, California (same place the Columbia was built if you remember from my post from the 4th of this month). The fleet was originally named after the U.S. Navy's atomic submarines: The Nautilus, The Seawolf, The Skate, The Triton, The Ethan Allan, The Patrick Henry, The Skipjack, and the George Washington.

Sitting on small fold-down seats, guests leaned forward to peer out through port holes on either side. The subs moved around a track in the mermaid lagoon and gave the illusion of diving by having bubbles rise around it while the captain intoned commands over the loudspeaker. Guests saw an underwater volcano, lost treasure, a "graveyard of lost ships," the legendary Lost Continent of Atlantis, a treasure chest of gold, mermaids, a sea serpent, and passed under icebergs at the “North Pole” during their 9 minute voyage. "REAL!” mermaids actually swam in the lagoon for a brief period. They eventually stopped doing this as young men kept jumping in the lagoon to them.  SMH LOL

During the opening ceremonies, there was even a water ballet of mermaids!

To watch the ceremony AND see the mermaids:

Does anyone here remember this attraction? I know our very own BombFrogCM was a former CM who operated this attraction!

Disney Parks blog posted an something AMAZING yesterday outlining the timeline and added even more photos from the June 14th, 1959's events, including the parade! My favorite part:

bandstand

Look closely at this rare color picture and you’ll see Hayley Mills, Roy O. Disney and Diane Disney Miller in the background. The man pictured between Walt Disney and Vice President Nixon is Meredith Willson, composer of the smash hit musical, “The Music Man,” which was still in its first theatrical run on Broadway at the time. Mr. Willson was an invited guest of Walt’s who was seated behind the vice president. During the television taping of this special parade, host Art Linkletter says, “What do I see down there? Meredith Willson, would you come up here for a minute?” Mr. Willson then came to the front of the reviewing stand. Art continued, “I want to hear from an expert. You’re ‘Mr. Music Man,’ what do you see coming up the street?”
To Mr. Wilson’s apparent amazement, what he saw was an all-brass band including 76 trombones, marching down Main Street, U.S.A., playing his signature song from “The Music Man,” “Seventy Six Trombones!” Mr. Willson could be overheard saying, “I’ve been saying it all afternoon, but Walt Disney, when he does anything, he does it right, doesn’t he? Listen to that!”

parade

As this incredible band approached the reviewing stand, Art led Mr. Willson to a small platform in the middle of the street, telling him, “Come on up here Meredith!” The drum major handed his hat and baton to Mr. Willson who then conducted the band to the finale of the song as the crowd roared from one end of Main Street to the other.”
Cool right? :)

Thanks so much for reading and watching! I realize this was a rather lengthy post! I tried to only add the most interesting information I could dig up! Hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!

So. Much. Awesomeness in this post!!! I LOVE Alice!! My fave scene is the dancing cards. It makes me kinda dizzy (in a good way) The monarail what fun it was to ride in the front on my very first Disneyland trip! The Matterhorn used to scare the bajeZies outta me as a kid. Now it just is painful to ride. ๐Ÿ˜ข  The subs! In all their Mermaid glory (wish they had been around in the 80's) I only remember the sea monster in this ride, and it smelling like urine ๐Ÿ˜ž. What a great day in history for our beloved park!!!  - PixiePirateMaid  290.2 #839 6:33AM
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer all my questions! It's not often people do that! I agree about the Matterhorn I can't ride it anymore either with my bad back. It is sad. ๐Ÿ˜” The mermaids were pretty neat huh! ๐Ÿ˜ the smell memory though....๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜‚ Indeed, a huge day for Disneyland!! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 7:52AM
This is an amazing history post--I loved the part about Meredith Willson. Thanks for taking the time to put these articles together, I know it takes forever to put together things like this! - Admin 3:59PM
Sorry for the late reply and bump, but, not going to not respond to something so kind. ๐Ÿ˜Š I can't lie, this one took me about a week. ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆ so happy so many enjoyed it though! Made it totally worth it! That 76 trombone story will never leave my mind. Can't wait to walk down Main Street and think about that! Thank YOU Admin!  - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 9:13AM
Lots of great stuff here! ย Thank you for all your hard work that you continually do for MW! ย You are a true MW gem! ย ๐Ÿ˜˜. I love the 76 trombones story! ย Wouldn't it have been awesome to be there that day? ย Love the old attraction posters! ย I always loved Alice in Wonderland. The part at the end where you are up so high off the ground was always fun for me. (And still is!). All us kids loved the submarines. We thought they were awesome. I know some people think this attraction should go away, but I look at it as iconic Disneyland and should no more leave than the Matterhorn should! ย I love the Nemo ย addition to the ride. Just makes it that much more interesting. One of my favorite pictures to take at Disneyland is the Matterhorn with the lagoon and a submarine in the foreground. ๐Ÿ˜. Nothing says Disneyland to me quite like that shot. Thank you for another awesome post, Duchess! ย Now go back to sleep! ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜˜ - MeridaFanHasNoAP  3193.1 #28 6:36AM
I'm so glad you liked that story! It would have been incredible to be there that day! Walt sure did things big didn't he?? Good choices for favorite scenes! It's sweet you still love the subs. I haven't been on em in years, I'm too claustrophobic! I'm grateful for the separate viewing room! Thanks so much for your kind words! Lol I couldn't help being up so early! My backs been flared up bad since I've had this little boy inside me! He's already trouble and he's not even born yet! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Pray for me, please!  - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 8:01AM
Boy?!  Congrats!  I didn't know you had made an announcement yet!  ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜. He's going to be a cutie, for sure!  Awww. Hope your back gets some relief soon!  If that's possible. ๐Ÿ˜˜ - MeridaFanHasNoAP  3193.1 #28 8:45AM
Oh! I had on IG/Facebook but I didn't post about it on here, not really Disney related. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank you! Me too!  - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 9:50AM
Awesomeness once again! Thank you!  - WishIWereThere  240.4 #1325 6:48AM
Gosh! How kind of you! Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 8:09AM
So much great info!!! And I remember the original subs very fondly, it was one of my Dads favorites. I was very sad when it closed, but i enjoy the Nemo version too! Thanks Duchess!! - hatgal76  399.8 #473 6:53AM
Thanks so much for telling me you enjoyed it! Awe! Sweet memory of your Dad! :) Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 8:23AM
So much awesome Disney history today. ย Too bad the Subs and Alice are both still closed for refurb. ย Can't wait for them to reopen. ย As for my favorite ย part of Alice I love Cheshire Cat. ย As for the Sub's I love the Nemo school scene with all the pretty colors. ย However, I must say the old school sub ride still carries a special place in my heart. ย Thank you for the post and teaching me more about the Happiest place on Earth. - Gabster1forDodgers  534.2 #320 6:55AM
Right?! I had to spend a whole lotta time on this one! ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜‚ good choices for favorites! I too wish Alice was open! So glad you enjoyed the post! Thanks a bunch for telling me enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 9:49AM
Thank you for all of this wonderful information! I love the part about The Music Man.  It is one of my favorite movies and I think about it every time I walk down Main Street. - Thumper13  342.1 #599 7:05AM
You're so very welcome! D'awe! What a nice thing to think about while walking down Main Street USA! ๐ŸŽถ I'm sure I will now as well! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 10:00AM
Thanks Duchess, A+ review as always - E-Ticket  1024.6 #138 7:12AM
You're always so kind Sir! Thank you! -Ticket!  - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 10:05AM
What a terrific post! 6/14/59 was a banner day in Disneyland history and you brought it back for us with the film footage. I have vague memories of the mermaids the Submarine Voyage and I thought it was something I'd made up until today! The Alice info was fascinating. Meredith Willson was a genius and to finally see a picture of him was wonderful!!! Thank you!!! - PrincessCindy  51.7 #4224 7:15AM
RIGHT?! So much history today! Happy the mermaid footage confirmed your memories! :) So SO happy you enjoyed all the photos! Made me smile to read your comment thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 6:29PM

Terrific post!  I found some of the stuff on Matterhorn especially interesting. Thanks for all the research putting this together.  - redsoxcarlos  865.3 #169 8:48AM
Thanks! Oh good! You're very welcome! Thanks for letting me know you like em! I really appreciate that! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 4:54AM
I miss the monorail stopping at the hotel...that was special. - earthgrl26  195.1 #1917 9:09AM
I bet that would have been super NICE! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 4:55AM
Wow, amazing history post SMK! - MightyWhitey  1026.5 #136 10:37AM
Thanks buddy! Sent you a sticker! :) Nice seeing you in the lounge! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 4:55AM
Can't wait for Alice to reopen. My favorite part is the singing flowers. I remember monorail picking us up at the DL Hotel. My kids don't believe me, thanks for the picture proof. I have ridden the monorail numerous time and still have never been able to ride in the front. ๐Ÿ˜žI love the Matterhorn! A CM told me that Walt originally want to make it Candy Mountain, like the one in the window in DCA, but they couldn't figure out how to make it structurally safe. My favorite side it the rt. because, I think it's faster than the lft. side. I like the new seats. Even though they lack leg room, I'm not getting a headache from being head butted from the person in front of me. As a kid I loved the submarines. The mermaids were my favorite part. I thought we were really deep. Now as an adult it's ok. How amazing would that be to see 76 trombones coming down Main Street?! I would start crying for sure. Thanks for all the great info!  - Bassplayerswife  131.7 #2819 10:53AM
Oh that IS a great part! SHOOT! Riding in the front is SO cool! I heard that they hardly do that anymore though. I hope you get to someday! Candy mountain eh? Can you imagine how different our park would be today if that happened? I agree with you on the left side being faster! I wish I could have seen those mermaids in person! I'd be crying right there with you if I saw those 75 trombones too! Thanks for the support! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 4:58AM
Love this thank you , although i like the old sleds on the matterhorn, and like our monorail current look although it would be nice to have access in the rest of the body for those hot days , I remember the old original submarine ride and the then story before Nemo although a lot of the original props whe re saved,  andlook for the sea sserpent near the end made of rocks  - pikarich  2404.0 #42 11:41AM

Thank you kindly sir! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 4:59AM
Great post! I remember when they added the yeti and I went "whoa"! I remember the before Nemo submarine voyage from the 60-90's, I loved it as a while but not so much as it felt so claustrophobic! I have always loved Alice. I remember when we used to get off the Matterhorn and walk to the hotel and hang out at the bar/cafe and watch kids play with the boats (now between Rain Forest and ESPN). Thanks Duchess! - ShariRenee  3853.1 #22 12:51PM
"whoa" ::giggles:: Oh good! I'm not alone on the claustrophobic thing! LOL How neat it must have been to ride the monorail all the way to the hotel! Thanks for sharing that memory with us! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 5:00AM
Thank you for posting!  As a mini I remember when the yeti was added to the Matterhorn...  I also remember when the subs were navy grey and was so proud to be a CM on this attraction after the first refit with the grey becoming yellow though we still wore navy dungarees until 1989 - BombFrogCM  671.0 #234 2:29PM
There he is! "navy dungarees" ::giggles:: Hope you saw your shout out in the post. ;) Thank you Sir! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 5:01AM

Let's welcome K1 SPEED to the MouseWait Family! If you want an unforgettable, adrenaline-pumping experience then you need to head to one of their nine locations in California, including Anaheim and Irvine! Their electric karts are capable of speeds of 45mph and accelerate to their top speed almost immediately. Once you see their indoor tracks in person and experience the performance of their karts, you'll be hooked! Make sure to mention MouseWait when you visit or call!

I've done several indoor carting courses (anyone surprised)and these guys do it the best! The carts are fast and the courses are challenging. Their staff is knowledgable and friendly. And Dave is right..... Two races and spaghetti arms! - NascarDave  278.9 #923 1:34PM

Never posted wait times before can someone tell me how to do it? - Shameekz  28.0 #5307 11:34AM
It's pretty simple. Choose the park you're in. For each park you can sort by lands or alphabetical order. You touch the attraction you want to enter, put the time you see or actually experienced and press submit. You can also put FP return time that shows and press submit. It'll return you to the attractions.  - MarshaMouse  3640.5 #25 9:23PM

Play Disneyland Trivia with your friends with our new WEB VERSION of the TRIVILATOR! Play single or multi-player games real-time with people from all over the world. You can also play on your iOS device with our app.

I'm addicted to playing these games. Looking to step up my Disney knowledge. Anyone is welcome to add me to a game if they like.  - Shameekz  28.0 #5307 12:11AM
No one ever seems to play when I log on.  This looks like it would be fun... - Thundermountaingal  10.9 #8454 2:49PM
i'll play you, but I usually only get to it at night since I have an android phone.  I am currently playing 8 games and everyone gets to their turn when they can.  It's fun. - Gabster1forDodgers  534.2 #320 8:24PM
Hi thundermountaingal, I think you just misunderstood how it works!  You log on whenever you are able to and answer the questions that are ready for you, then you wait until the other person/people answer the same question you answered.  Then the results are revealed, at which time everyone needs to view the results, before the next question is answered.  It sounds like it might not be what you are looking for, but you might still give it a try. I have a couple games that are over a week old and we are maybe halfway through the questions.  People get to it when they are able to, and as long as you are patient, you should be able to have fun.  If you have a bunch of games going at the same time, then you will have more activity throughout the day/night, depending when you play!  Also, if you have a game with 3 or more people, that will go even slower, so you would probably only want to play one on one games.  You can also play a single player game, which is found under the "Local Game" tab and then you would just select Single Player and then choose your trivia pack and start the game!  I set up a game with you so you can see what I mean regarding the multi-player games!  If you don't choose to accept it I will just delete it in a few days, no big deal!  I hope you have a nice day and I hope this helped explain it better :0)   - zenderella  408.7 #459 8:22AM

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

Unforecast for Tuesday July 29th, there appears to be a bit of Christmas in July coming to LaBrea about 8 pm with lots of snow ( I wish) to cool us down. But lots of cool drinks and desserts if UTDisneyfamily cannot bring the cold air with them! Hope to see you all there!!! - secretagentangel Jul 28, 2014 5:49PM
Trying to post the forecast right now but not letting me post up there. I stopped by for an hour before church to get a sandwich. The beauty of having an AP!!!very hot to walk around so people are already waiting for the parade so AnyOne on the way here, pack your patience and find the a seat in the shade, read Mousewait and stay cool! Yay!!! I think this is working!!! - secretagentangel Jul 27, 2014 6:02PM

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  350.8 #570 5:39PM
