Thank you Sir! I won't lie, they are a lot of work. 😊  But I get a lot of joy from making them. My kids love to read them, (Disney history counts as history too right? ☺️). It's Especially fun when I get to hear people's fun stories about their experiences with the things I write about. Helps bring the parks even more to life for me! πŸ’« - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:39AM

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  5909.5 #14 9:02PM

Good morning! πŸ‘‹ And 😍 I did not get to see DCA until 2006. I didn't visit at all while in college (no extra $ πŸ˜‚), but DLR was my first trip after I had been working for awhile, and also my first trip with my now-husband! Β Wow, sometimes I forget just how much has changed since then--I loved looking at the map! Β I did enjoy the earlier version of DCA very much, and it will always have a special place in my heart. Β It's so fun to have been able to see the park grow and develop (we joke that we, as a couple, kinda grew up with DCA πŸ˜‚--maybe we analyze things too much). Β Does anyone remember the store that sold the Mr. Potatohead parts? Β Loved that, haha πŸ˜‚ However, sentimentality aside, the new DCA is fabulous, and such a great Disney park. πŸ’–πŸ‘ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 9:52AM

Great post! No, we were not there for opening day. Funny, I recently found a map from our visit in 2004. Back then, both parks were put on one large map. Of course Maliboomer is on  on it as well as the Orange Stinger🍊. And then at the opposite end of the park we do have the Superstar Limo, but no ToT.  This DCA map looks and feels so very different from how it is now. I am definitely happier for the changes they have made. Thank you!!    - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5016.8 #18 11:15AM

At the daily opening of the ride they use to have a screaming contest, I don't remember if it was kids only. I think the power meter was used?  A few guests were picked for the scream off. The winner got a certificate that allowed them Front of Line privileges?  Sorry my memory is so fuzzy but they did do this I swear!  I want to say for a year or two. I love this ride, it's so well done, no "slow" spots.

The eucalyptus  trees in the back of jungle are from the original  lands too. They said Walt was going to save more trees and came to the site one day and someone cut down more than he wanted. So he went out and got more. when DCA was being built they asked in our local paper for people to donate full grown trees to Disney ( I believe they were paid for them too). - secretagentangel  1376.6 #106 1:22PM
I didn't know any of that, that's great info!! - adisneyfamily  839.9 #192 2:04PM
Not sure if they put plaques on the first DCA trees, though I doubt it. When they first brought them from people's homes they were in big wood containers but I think not all of them made the transplant well and died.  :( you used to be able to go to a place and buy the used Disneyland plants, (they replace littles constantly) but I was told they donate all now. There is a tour based on the plants of DL but not sure how often they do it.  - secretagentangel  1376.6 #106 2:52PM
Yes! I remember that video on Main St during the 50th anniversary with Steve Martin where Abraham Lincoln is now, talking about how Walt tied ribbons around the trees he wanted to keep/take down and they were green/red but the person operating the bull dozer was colorblind and cut all of them down! - SarahLovesDisney  82.2 #3709 3:05AM

I remember waiting in line that trip and the droid the talks in the queue said "Hi Dad" at the exact moment my father stopped walking. It was hilarious to our family. We loved the ride, I like the new one better because of the randomness of each ride.  - PixiePirateMaid  312.9 #752 11:18PM

I've posted the top pic before. My father took it in September of 1958 but this past weekend, I was finally able to get the same position and show how much it has changed over the past 56 years. It's amazing!

 Many prayers and good thoughts being sent your way! πŸ’– ✨😘  There are lots of great Disney quotes, but as an avid reader and someone who values storytelling, my favorite is "there is more treasure in books than in all the Pirates' loot on Treasure Island!"  A runner up is "life is composed of light and shadows and we would be untruthful, insincere and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows."   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 4:15PM
So sweet! I really appreciate the prayers! Thank you lady! πŸ’—that's an wonderful choice for a favorite quote. 😍 - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 6:22PM
"Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards.... The things we live by and teach our children ...are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings" Great post as always ! 😍 and wouldn't it be amazing it new baby shares a birthday with Walt! πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ you take care, all will go well 😊 - eviljules  1191.3 #124 8:59AM

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.. β€œHappy 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  395.0 #0 11:39AM
