As for the treehouse I have mixed feelings- Love Tarzan and I like the refresh/redo but I miss classic Disney.

I was one of those children that opened Small World.  I have posted that before, but that brought lots of memories back.  I met Walt, shook his hand and he spoke to each of us.  I didn't want to wash my hand, and I won't say how old I was, but very little!  It meant a lot even at that age I guess?  My voice is also on the 45 that we made with the Sherman Brothers in a studio that was sold at the parks.  I believe the 45 says it was recorded by a children's choir, which was us.  We were the International Children's Choir from Long Beach.  I was a soloist when we sang the song and I represented Columbia, and sang in Spanish, which I still remember.  Kind of feels special to be a part of such an iconic part of Disneyland.  Thanks for posting these, as always! - snowwannab  734.5 #252 6:57PM

Awesome info. We love this attractions. Never been on a different version but i'ld like to try them all. When my youngest was finally tall enough to ride we took him cause he loves roller coasters and he cried and cried. We couldn't figure out why he got so upset riding Space Mountain until one day he says "I don't want to go to outer space". He thought we were really launching into space and was terrified he was going to die because there wasn't any oxygen in space. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Now that he's 14 and fearless, it's so wonderful to have these memories.Β  - Bassplayerswife  446.1 #475 10:37AM

πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ» not true...whoever you are using my account please delete the app, sign out, change your something and please let us know who you are supposed to be so Admin can fix this. - Linzee  1165.7 #148 9:16PM
I did.  I deleated the app and logged on using my computer.  It was fixed , but as soon as I commented your screen name popped up.  That's why I didn't comment anymore. I am done asking admin to look into it because he officially doesn't give care.  The only thing I can think of was when I got a new laptop and dialed up thingy it some who cancelled out my screen name.  I am not doing anything wrong. I want this thing figured out too. - Linzee  1165.7 #148 9:43PM
You know this happened like two or three weeks ago when everyone was posting as someone else. Remember?  Maybe there was a glitch still going on with mine. That's why admin can't read or find my emails to him - Linzee  1165.7 #148 9:45PM
Please tell us who you are...he is actively searching this out, I've been messaging him. - Linzee  1165.7 #148 9:48PM
He needs to know what screen name you should be using, please help us figure this out.  Tracking your IP isn't working.   - Linzee  1165.7 #148 9:51PM
Please just type your screenname in a reply here or email me, email is on my profile page. Β I mean sharing an account is cool, but we are gonna have to get a few things straight...I don't like Space Mountain, or TOT or Screamin. Β I also don't eat meat so please don't comment 'nice pic or that's my fave" on those posts. Β I also do not usually thank or comment on blurry pics. Β I don't like the Grand and EQ if this is you using my account, I will for sure get a good laugh out of it. Β  - Linzee  1165.7 #148 10:13PM
