you know what is cool is that MissMolly's uncle was on the show and was a Mouseketeer - Dave  11390.2 #2 11:28AM
I remember her posting about that! SO COOL! Do you by chance remember his name? I forget....MissMolly - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 11:34AM
His name is Tom Jackman, but there was already a "Tommy" so they made him "Jack." πŸ˜‰ I'll bump that post of him finding the pic of himself with Walt when we went to the archives if I can find it :) - MissMolly  1221.3 #109 3:45PM

 I still enjoy watching repeats of the black-and-white version of The Mickey Mouse Club. I think the part I like the best is that the cast members all wore the first Ears! 😍😍 (surprise😱!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) And yes, I do know the song!  Walt must have had his hands pretty full with the opening up of the brand new Disneyland and a TV show, just a few short months later. What a wonderful way to promote ✨Disneyland✨!!  Pure marketing genius!!  - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4075.8 #23 12:50PM
Oh and Cubby was my fav!! He was so cute and I love when he would play the drums - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4075.8 #23 1:05PM
Cubby was so cute! - Thumper13  394.5 #491 7:24PM
😍 yes! I love watching the re-runs too! And since the "moosekateer" invented the ears it's extra special! I agree that Walt was a genius!  - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 7:47PM
Oh and cubby! πŸ˜πŸ‘ nice choice!  - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 7:47PM
I love watching the old videos of these. I really wish there was a DVD of all them. And the Mickey Mouse Club farewell song has to be one of the saddest songs ever, in a way that the show is over.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6078.4 #13 11:03PM
Today is Tuesday, you know what that means, were going to have a special special guest! I ❀️ MICKEY MOUSE CLUB! - MadameLeota  1765.5 #72 11:05PM
So get out the broom and sweep the place clean. Dust off the mat so the welcome can be seen. Loved this show. - kskating  579.1 #296 11:13PM
Roll out the red carpet, strike up the band, and give out with a hip-hooray "hip-hooray"! I watched this show religiously!!! - PrincessCindy  90.6 #3509 7:14AM

Thank you for another wonderful post! Hope you get some rest! When the attraction opened in the 80's, it was a big deal. I remember the toys and shirts. I think it is time to move on. We caught the Guardians of the Galaxy preview and enjoyed it. I am not sure what will happen.😏 - RadiatorSprings4Ever  811.3 #190 12:35AM

Perhaps it's time to revamp all of tomorrowland.  Seriously, it is now yesterdayland (1986!) perhaps a makeover to the tomorrow of 2061.  Just a thought - wildtoad  16.6 #6969 1:59PM
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 personally think bringing it back when there's no other movie preview would be just fine.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  693.9 #232 9:59PM

Wonderful post. We are trying to explain what this day means to the kids. The oldest has seen footage from that day and I have shown him the magazines and newspapers that I had saved. We explain that this is why it is so important that we support our troops. They are fighting for us so that this kind of tragedy will never happen on USA soil. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  811.3 #190 8:15AM
 That's great you've saved newspaper articles and such. What a great thing to teach your boys about. Supporting the troops is indeed of the upmost importance! Thanks for sharing!  - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 8:39AM
Thanks for the great post. Today is one of the most tragic days in history. I'll never forget those lives that were lost today.

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  4075.8 #23 6:57AM

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  6078.4 #13 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  2115.6 #54 5:57AM
^^thank you ma'am! My you were up early! Baby doing okay today IDVandalSkipperCM ?! - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #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  2115.6 #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  1049.6 #143 8:50AM
Very cool ☝ @redsoxcarlos - MickeyLumboCM  752.3 #207 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  1251.8 #103 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  2356.6 #46 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??? πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #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  1251.8 #103 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 moreπŸ˜‚. That pic of the chairs you mentioned, I liked the shades, above. Though at 101Β°, 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! Β 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!! πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ“… cool emoji with DLR's birthdate!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4075.8 #23 6:20AM
😍 good morning churro! Oh how I wish you were down here today! Β 2 boats is cray cray! We couldn't even have a respectable meetup! πŸ˜‚ Those shades ARE cool huh? Yes, not many mature trees yet. Could you imagine wearing a πŸ‘—πŸ‘ πŸ‘  in that weather? πŸ˜– 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! Aβž• today! That is a cool emoji! Coincidence?

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  77.9 #3704 3:45PM

You made me cry! Such sweet memories for you! Thanks so much for sharing them with us! 😍 ((hugs))  - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #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  2847.8 #35 8:17AM

#live The Fred Gurley is running today! The oldest of all the Disneyland Railroad steam engines! It joined Disneylands fleet on March 28th, 1958. But this engine’s 120-years old! Named after Fred G. Gurley, who was president of the Santa Fe Railway from 1944-1957. Built by Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Penn., in 1894.

I was ecstatic to see the Fred Gurley running last Saturday.  The Fred Gurley was out of service since the beginning of June because of a broken axle.    - ckholliday  253.3 #1196 5:58PM
Had a feeling you may like this post! I know you love the trains! 😊 I was happy to see Fred out too!  - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 6:16PM
We rode it last Saturday and my son said, why is the train different.  He didn't like it as much.  I just shared with this history lesson you posted and now he likes it more than the other one.  Thank you Duchess_SMK - potatohead25  562.7 #307 8:51PM

Today our Disney dreams came true with a visit to Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany. For those who don't know, Neuschwanstein Castle was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's Castle in Disneyland. It's easy to see how Disney Imagineers were inspired by this magical place! Like Neuschwanstein, the Sleeping Beauty Castle was designed to appear taller through forced perspective (design elemen  More...

I loved the skyway. I'm pretty sure it's my cousin's fault it was closed and removed. He would get a little box of rock candy and throw it at people. If he ran out of candy he would try and spit on people. My favorite part of the tiki room is when the ladies drop down and have us sing along. Unless Maynard's there then his intro is my favorite part of the show. I liked the Swiss tree but kids don't know of the movie or the book so it makes since to change it to Tarzan. I think it's a good change and lots of fun. - Bassplayerswife  168.5 #2274 10:20AM

great post , the longest i waited for this is 60 minutes lol on . the cms do a great job with an average of 40 minutes but 60-90 is ok on busier days.at first i thought fasspass would be great but do a low capacity and 2 vechicles load would make the stand-by line even longer.i have been able to hit over the 300,000 mark with my arm being super soar lol,mr.potatoe head is advance tech too as cameras are able to point out guest to in interact with.the ride had an upgrade when toy story 3 came out replacing the boo-peep pop ballons. throughout the ride are easter eggs that if you trigger correctly will open up higher point targets.the inside of the ride is a tribute to alot of classic board games and others. for japans version when the ride first opened pics where on social medias showing the wait time at 8 and 10 hr long.one fun fact i found in a toy story mania documentary is on the ring toss game it was modified quickly. the original game was programmed to act like real ring toss making it harder to land the rings on the targets, the change was to give the targets a magnetic pull around them making it way easier to land on them. - pikarich  2847.8 #35 9:15AM
You always add so much to my posts! Thanks pikarich! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 6:34AM
I love this ride, thank you for your post. I wish so much, it would be a shorter wait time though!  - FrankenweenieVelinee  1395.5 #92 9:40AM
Me too!!id get to enjoy it much more often!  - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 6:34AM
This surely is one of my fav rides in DCA. The queue is great with Mr.PotatoHead as the barker. And thank goodness they put those umbrellas up- we used to have to just stand in the sunπŸ”₯. I don't recall any of that opening day attraction stuff, as we were there. I just remember being in line near Ariel's Grotto and the line no longer moving. We sat down in our spots and waited. After some time, we were finally told the ride had broken down. Then the  line moved again, and stopped. It was really hot that day on the Pier and finally we decided to call it a day after waiting in line for 3 hours. Lesson learned that day, for sure... Go find something else to do and come back later😊😊 thanks Duchess 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4075.8 #23 6:40AM
Oh yes! That's right they didn't used to have those 'S! Wow! 3 hours then being told it was broken, now THAT's a bummer! Yes! I couldn't wait that long for anything. I'd have to come back. Especially with kiddos! Thank YOU churro! πŸ‘―πŸ˜˜πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  5667.5 #14 7:19AM
This is one of my favorites! It would be fabulous to have shorter wait times. However, a 60min. isn't too bad because the line is constantly moving. The bad part is the stinky smell from the plants. My favorite part of the ride is Ham's and the army men. There is just something exciting about being able to throw eggs and break plates! Once again, thanks for the wonderful post.  - Bassplayerswife  168.5 #2274 7:37AM
