Oh she looks so pretty all dressed up. I like the top awning(not sure if that's the correct word) of the Congo Queen. And is that a CM or guest with the stripe shirt and sandal looking shoes?

More from October 1955...the Mark Twain in some seriously shallow water 😁

Tagged in: Disney History  
So the reason that the water is so low is because when they first filled up the ROA they did not realize that the ground would absorb all of the water so they had to pour concrete just before the park opened to the public. Even after they poured the concrete, they had a hard time keeping water in the River because of absorption by the ground. It took them years to really keep the levels at at a normal level and a system that not only keeps water in there but also replenishes it when it gets low. - Dave  12489.0 #2 11:43AM

Does anyone remember the phone exhibit where Astro Blaster is now (and American the Beautiful was once upon a time).  It had phones hooked up to characters (you'd pick up a phone and a character would light up so you'd know who you got).  There were also rooms (with picture windows that looked out - right across from Star Tours - then Monsanto) where groups could call family members for free and all talk at once (ooohhhh) on speaker phones.  I remember thinking it was the coolest thing! - msdizmaui  640.6 #279 5:10PM

DsnyPrincessMommy aren't you the sweetest!? Thank you! I do indeed homeschool. How exciting for you! Have you decided on a curriculum yet? That took me awhile, but now that we have one that I love it's much easier. :) We usually bring our nature journals to the parks and try to identify as many plants and birds we can find. Other then that, we pretty much just enjoy the parks as a nice break. I'd love to hear what you come up with though! Lots of possibilities! - Duchess_SMK  5955.1 #15 9:02PM
