When I found out I shared a birthday with Mickey & Minnie I was pretty excited to say the least.  I was looking through a calendar my Mom had bought to see what day of the week my birthday fell on, you know, what kids do, lol, and low and behold, there it was.. “Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse”!  I was beyond excited.  I’ve always loved everything Disney and have been lucky enough to celebrate a few birthdays at the parks as an adult, including my 40th  (my profile pic), when Disneyland was having a big 80th celebration for the cute couple. It was awesome!  And wearing that birthday button on that day, I sure felt special. Thank you Walt and  ..Mickey & Minnie! - DisneylandOrBust  296.1 #0 11:39AM

Thank you for this Duchess! This is a big deal for me. I don't talk about why I love ariel and the little mermaid too often because I don't like to be all sappy--but this movie was one of the main things my mom and I bonded over. She really influenced and fostered my love of the ocean when I was a child and continued to do so until she passed away in 2001. This movie is more than just a movie to me, as crazy as it sounds-and every time I watch it I am overcome with good feelings and great memories of my mom that will last a lifetime. I only hope to one day pass down my love of the sea and of this movie to my children as it is so so very special to me. THANK YOU 😘😘 - missariel33  1563.7 #84 4:41PM

What a great history post! The ads for the Post are great! Love the pan, Spud ciggies- (what a name, you would think they were made from potatoes😜) and I think I liked the Rambler car the best😂.  I watched the video- Alyssa Milano is soo young there. Loved watching the interview with Pat Carroll and hearing what influenced her to make Ursula's voice.  Interesting at one point Ursula says, "In my day, we had fantastical feasts, when I lived in the palace." I looked that up and apparently Disney played around with Triton and Ursula as siblings, which would make sense, that she was banished from the kingdom she would try to do what she could to get back at him. My favorite part about The Little Mermaid are the scenes with Ursula 💜💚💚, but you probably already know that😂😂. I am looking very forward to going on this attraction again😱😱😍😍😍. Thanks!!!     Love and 💕,  - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4182.3 #23 10:00AM
Thanks love bug! I had a feeling you may enjoy the ads as much as I did. I was LOL at the "Spud" ciggies too! What an incredibly odd name! I'd take any of those cars TBH. But the rambler is a great choice! She was right?! Made me think of that show she was on....what was it? Who's the Boss? hahaaha! Glad you enjoyed the video, I totally thought of you when I was watching the interview with Pat Carroll. :) Yes, I guessed you loved the Ursula parts best, but idk how I knew that! ;) Love YA! xx - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 4:58PM

Such a historic day! I remember hearing that when Fantasia was in theaters, there were only a few that could show it because it the studios built a special audio set up for the film, thus, could only show it in a few theaters at once. Also, did you know that the final product of Toy Story 2 was all done in about 3 weeks of production? If you watch the Pixar Story documentary, they were having a really hard time with a script and any character development while introducing new characters at the same time (Bullseye, Jessie, etc.). After watching it, a lot of people felt like the story still wasn't complete enough and felt like there was something missing, thus, a third film was made.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6229.0 #12 10:43AM
I didn't know any of that! Thanks for adding BaseballMickey_CM! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 3:08PM
and my fave scene for the movie is of course the Sorcerer Apprentice! but i love ALL OF THE SEGMENTS! (Wish they do another Fantasia movie this time around, now that we have all the resources Walt Disney needs during his time!) - otilegna  1829.4 #69 8:46PM

I am so lucky that the original Mickey Mouse Club was,  I guess,  syndicated and played in the 70s.  It was so great to see  the show that my parents would have seen when it was new.  and I got to see the shows within the show,  'Annette' and 'Spin and Marty'.  the songs on MMC were so fun! - MsTikiMermadam  1.6 #57686 2:35AM

I love this show for life. I don't care how cheesy and outdated it is. I listen to music on my car, I've learned some dance moves before and plan to one day wear my Disneybound outfit for this one.

I had not seen either of these Disney shorts, but I did watch the "Truth About Mother Goose". College already wiped out my childhood memories of fairy tales. Anyone read the original Cinderella by the brothers Grimm😬. I did not know the Mary from this fairy tale was Mary Queen of Scots. She didn't live happily ever after. 😵.

We used to ride Dumbo when the churros were little. Maybe it's time to ride again an get an elephant's eye view of Disneyland. Neat to see the video of how it evolved. The longest we've probably wait it is 20 minutes. Do they still give out the feather? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4182.3 #23 6:57AM
They do still hand out feathers (with little bite marks all over them 😂) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  543.3 #323 7:14AM
I think it depends on who's working because when we rode last trip they didn't hand out feathers. 😔 my kiddos were bummed. Great views up there!  - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 8:02AM

From what I remember, wasn't Mr Lincoln already playing at the park and a second show was made for the Illinois pavillion for the '64 World's Fair, making it the only Disneyland attraction from the Worlds Fair to be playing on both coasts at the same time?  - BaseballMickey_CM  6229.0 #12 12:05AM
It was vice versa. It opened here while it was still playing at the worlds fair. The fair lasted until October I believe.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2171.8 #54 5:57AM
^^thank you ma'am! My you were up early! Baby doing okay today IDVandalSkipperCM ?! - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 7:33AM
Duchess_SMK she's great!  I had to get up early to get myself ready for work before taking her to child care. I hope you're doing well!   - IDVandalSkipperCM  2171.8 #54 8:42AM
That explains it. I remember seeing it at the World's Fair in June 1965, and was a bit confused on it opening here the same time. I actually saw all four Disney attractions at the Fair, Lincoln, Small World, Carousel of a Progress and the dinosaurs. So I got an early baptism in Disney! - redsoxcarlos  1150.8 #123 8:50AM
Very cool ☝ @redsoxcarlos - MickeyLumboCM  756.6 #210 3:45PM
Also, wasn't while designing Lincoln's face, that the imagineer turned the mask inside out and realized it seemed like the eyes were following him, which then led to DL being the first to have an attraction (Haunted Mansion) with the faces that follow you as you walk by.  design by accident, I always think that is so cool!! - secretagentangel  1261.7 #104 1:17AM
Yep. The illusion is that your mind can't process the light around the negative concaved shape so it compensates by telling you the item is moving instead of the lighting from which you're viewing. Disney actually owns a patent on this design if I recall. - CM_Shadowgamer  2372.4 #48 4:53AM
Thanks sectetagentangel! I just posted a pic of those guys from HM on Thursday! Thanks for your comment! ^^so cool! Thank you CM_Shadowgamer ! I appreciate you adding to  that! You were up early too! Or was it really late??? 😂 - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 7:42AM
I remember reading that they do own the patent. It really shows how Walt Disney hired the best people because even when they weren't really trying to design something a certain way they still came up with awesome designs that no one ever thought of!!!!! And thanks Shadowgamer you  always give us the right info and facts to help us learn more! I know you love your job !!!I really envy your working at the park!😍 - secretagentangel  1261.7 #104 3:36PM

Happy 59th Birthday Disneyland! Great post to remind of how it was. I cannot imagine ONLY 2 boats for the Jungle Cruise- glad they got a few more😂. That pic of the chairs you mentioned, I liked the shades, above. Though at 101°, there does not look like much shade and back then, pretty sure the guests did not bring their CamelBaks. How frightening in Fantasyland😱. That picture of the man trying to get his toddler, I can't place where that is but, goodness, BUSY!  I think I would have been delighted with walking through the castle and Peter Pan's Flight. Thanks again and have a wonderful day at Disneyland!! 👉👉📅 cool emoji with DLR's birthdate!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4182.3 #23 6:20AM
😍 good morning churro! Oh how I wish you were down here today!  2 boats is cray cray! We couldn't even have a respectable meetup! 😂 Those shades ARE cool huh? Yes, not many mature trees yet. Could you imagine wearing a 👗👠👠 in that weather? 😖 I think that pic with the toddler is outside the main gate, to the right where the stroller rental and kennel is today? Those look like ticket booths to me. Good choices for your "most excited" you're the only one who's answered my questions! A➕ today! That is a cool emoji! Coincidence? I think not! 😂😘💗 - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 7:55AM
Awesome post as usual SMK! Thanks for taking the time to do this, I never get tired of watching old YouTube videos of Walt and Disneyland! - Admin 10:10AM
such an awesome day yesterday! happy birthday disneyland! - OhanaPhoto  3232.6 #30 8:30AM
Agreed!🎁 Still bummed I missed YOU though! 😩 - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 11:23AM
If I could have gone, I would have gone straight to Peter Pan, because all he ever did was be out side, go on adventures and have fun! Plus his hat was my favorite😊Thanks for all the great Disney history lessons😘 @Duchess_SMK - MadameLeota  1827.0 #70 2:52PM

Thank you so much for this post about Space Mountain!! I cried so hard when I watched it. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of the main reason why I absolutely love this attraction. Well hear it goes: My dad, who passed away in 2002, loved astronomy. He loved everything including the stars, planets, space shuttles. We would have never ending conversations about this subject. It was his passion. I continued to be passionate about it. My dad worked with the Space program at Collins radio. When I watched this and saw Niel Armstrong I really became emotional. My dad had met him. What an honor to meet such a great man!! Anyways, I don't have to tell you how much Space Mountain means to me. It is THE BEST ride in the universe!!!! Not only for the thrill, but it connects me to my dad!! I believe he loved Space Mountain as much as I did!! Anyways, I will especially make sure I ride it tonight in his honor!! Thanks again!! - Superspacemountainfan  82.5 #3650 3:45PM
I like space mnt - pikarich  3038.8 #34 3:51PM
Thanks for sharing. - potatohead25  566.9 #310 6:56PM
You made me cry! Such sweet memories for you! Thanks so much for sharing them with us! 😍 ((hugs))  - Duchess_SMK  5714.1 #14 8:05PM
First let me apologize for my lengthy 2 cents. Ok, so space mnt was closed and completely redone for the two years so it could reopen for Disneyland 50th anniversary, which it did have a soft opening 2 days before. the floor of space mnt was lowered about 20ft more for safety and earthquake safety and the tracks where redone 100 % to the original layout and the trains redone. lost was the glow in the dark trains and slowly some of the windows where closed from the then people mover track and other areas. the ride also got a new soundtrack and a special model was on display inside the opera house which showed the exact layout of space mountain.Did you know that every disneyl park has a space mnt attraction , which our is number 2 built after wdw and different in design and ride vechicles. our space mnt top speed can reach up to 35 mph and there use to be the biggest hidden mickey which is still there in the dark no longer shown but as you came out of the launch tunnel there was a huge 3 rock meteor and a blasted mickey carving on itbut you can only see it if you flash (not from me) of if the lights ever ome on and also as you climb the countdown ramp look on the right side wall and see a hidden donald made out of stars. Turtle crush seen it love it very fun and unpredictable which makes itso much fun and a great ac room indeed - pikarich  3038.8 #34 8:17AM
