The first time my brother and I saw the Chicken of the Sea Ship we thought it was a ride we were so excited. We went rushing toward it and went inside only to find out it was a restaurant. The addition of Skull Rock made for excellent pictures. When they Built Peter Pan Pool at the Disneyland Hotel, I was so happy to see the past come to the present.  - Midasgold  566.6 #307 9:52AM
Ha! Thanks for sharing those memories with us! Did you ever eat there? - Duchess_SMK  5676.3 #14 11:13AM
I clearly remember seeing the ship and thinking "tuna? bleeeech 😝😷". Β It just didn't sound appetizing at all!!! Β I also remember Skull Rock Lagoon and still miss it today. Thanks for the waltz down memory lane. πŸ’ƒ - DisneyGrandma  702.1 #226 9:56AM

I don't remember it, but there are pictures of us with skull rock.  Not sure it would have been something I would have wanted to eat.  Thanks for the post! - AZDisney  599.2 #287 6:22AM

Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 28th, 1929. The Mickey Mouse short, "The Opry House" directed by Walt Disney, is released. Mickey owns & performs @ his own theatre, going in drag as a harem girl, in a derby as a Hasidic Jew, & finally in a wig as a fancy pianist! It is the first time Mickey is seen wearing his trademark white gloves! To watch: http:  More...

I personalty don't like how relaxed Disney has become with the grooming of its Cast and that goes along with the costuming as well. Back in the 90s when I was there they use to send people home for their hair not being neat or side burns being to long, to much makeup, wrong color socks, the list goes on and on. I obviously have nothing against facial hair as I have it myself but think that they need to do a better job and making sure its cast is presentable on stage - Dave  11414.7 #2 1:03PM
^^Agreed. - NotNKansasAnymor  204.9 #1813 1:12PM
When I worked in appearance coordination, I had to write up so many people. It really bit hard. - Butterlina  1468.6 #88 7:31PM
I concur, from your time there during the 90's and my time in the late 80's... It was all about the clean cut image no matter your race, color or creed. If I remember correctly there were weight guidelines as well. - BombFrogFormerCM  707.9 #221 7:41PM
Where I work at if you're not clean shaven they will send you home or make you go buy a razor at the TDA building. - TINO  379.2 #518 10:54PM
I remember as a castmember between 1987 to 1990, if you arrived "scruffy" before going on-stage, there were razors and shaving cream for sell in vending machines right next to cast-cutters (castmember barber shop). - BombFrogFormerCM  707.9 #221 6:53AM
😳 HA! Wow! Well, I guess that's better then sending you home for the day without pay?! Thank you for adding that. Always near to hear first hand from CMs! :) - Duchess_SMK  5676.3 #14 7:06AM
They still have 'em. Now they also come with black and white socks and panty hose. - AWholeNewWorld  313.8 #732 8:48AM
Disney seriously thinks of everything - MissMolly  1228.2 #108 10:13PM
Walt had a mustache - Plumiegirl  8011.7 #3 10:10PM
Truth. - GrumpyPirateDad  1790.8 #71 10:26PM
Yes, but it was well groomed. I would prefer clean shaven CMs, but I could make my peace with well groomed mustaches, but no goatees or beards, that's too much facial hair. - NotNKansasAnymor  204.9 #1813 10:32PM
I agree. I don't like facial hair on a man either. - coll  31.3 #5166 10:55PM

For anyone that wants a really unique dining experience you've got to try the Chef's Counter at Napa Rose. The Chef's Counter gives you great food and a truly entertaining evening. You put your dining choices in the hands of your chef. You will be asked about your food preferences, things you don't like or can't eat, how spicy you like your food and how you like your food cooked. It's a five cours  More...

Just wanted to add that you're more then welcome to ask questions from any of the Chef's about about what and how they are preparing dishes. When we got there we saw them preparing beef tenderloins and racks of lamb. Admin was amazed at how they could tell doneness by look and feel, no thermometers are used here. The other great thing about sitting at the right station is that you also right in front of where all the yummy desserts are prepared and the freezer with all the sorbets and ice cream. - Coaster  14532.4 #1 3:29PM
Great post Coaster! Thanks for treating us to this incredible experience -- the food was unreal, I tried things that I'd never had before, everything was layered with out-of-this-world flavor, and seeing them run the kitchen was like watching a Food Network show. The best part was getting to hang out with you and Lori. THANK YOU! - Admin 9:46AM

I don't remember my first ride on POTC, although I'm sure it was the year it opened (I was 10). It was my mother's favorite ride. She wouldn't do roller coaster type rides, or spinning, or drop rides. Yet she would giggle and scream during POTC's drops saying it was just perfect for her. The background story wasn't readily available, but my mom was a history teacher and used POTC to teach me about Lafitte, the era, and pirates in general. She knew the song by heart, and would softly sing it throughout the whole ride. Her last visit was in the Fall of 1997, but every time I go on it I can't help but think of her and how much she enjoyed it. It's not my absolute #1 favorite attraction, but it holds the most memories. - Gia  801.8 #193 2:26PM

My first visit to DL was in 1973. My then boyfriend (now hubs) took me to the park on a very rainy Sat morn. First place we went was Pirates. When we exited it had stopped raining and the sun was shining on ROA. After riding Pirates and seeing this beautiful park shining I was so overcome with emotion I'll never forget it. That was the moment I fell in love with Disneyland. - DisneyGrandma  702.1 #226 9:20AM

The Walt Disney Family museum has a story from Walt about the ride. Walt wanted to show his wife what he had been working on, but the ride was not complete and as a construction site, dirt was prevalent, but Walt laid down floorboards to allow his wife to walk through and not get her dress dirty. A dreamer, a genius, and a gentleman. - campy  44.2 #4546 9:54PM

#Tip: I've seen several posts about starting a pressed penny collection, and I thought I would offer a little friendly advice since I have some photo examples. First, choose only pre-1982 pennies. These are made of copper and when pressed, will not have other "silver" metals show through. The examples below are my own. The ones on the left were gathered at WDW last week, made from "good" penn  More...

Great info thanks for posting! - Admin 5:09PM
Sorry, had to bump, but I wanted to add my two cents (hehe). I used all of your tips and they worked really well cleaning the pennies, but there was still some black gunk stuck on some of them so I went searching for another solution to get off the remaining gunk. And I discovered... an eraser!! Worked wonders. All you have to do is rub it over the dirty parts and it comes right off and leaves penny just like new. Hope this helps someone. Thanks for all the tips! Very excited to use my new shiny pennies on our next trip :D - lohofosho  784.5 #198 1:17PM

Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 7th,1997. Pirates of the Caribbean reopens after being renovated.

My mom's favorite ride! She never saw the addition of Captain Jack but she did see the change that Lilsterner mentioned....and was not happy!

I miss the original scene with the women being chased. That was more realistic! When the change was made to chasing food I was surprised at the addition of the overweight woman chasing the ham. I thought it was funny that there was a change to be PC in one aspect but just became as stereotypical in another one. I miss the funny historical aspect of the original but I don't mind the addition of Jack, Barbosa, and Davey Jones. - LilSterner  4536.8 #18 9:22AM
My thoughts exactly lol - rbeezy  702.9 #225 9:41AM
I also liked the women chasing the men and thought it weird at the time of why it was changed. It wasn't until I got older I realized why it was changed, I liked it the old way since that was just a pirates life to me! - pixiedreamer  131.9 #2850 9:50AM

I got to ride this a week before the official opening at an overnight event (didn't know about soft openings or previews then so we thought we were pretty special). I was one of the first in line that night and we were escorted down Main St to the queue. My group rode the ride and loved it. As we were coming back to the loading area someone wasn't paying attention and my Jeep bumped the Jeep that had just finished loading (no joke). Smoke came out of the front of the Jeep I was in. They moved the Jeep out of the way, pulled the one I was in to the loading area and we got out. The ride was down for a bit after that. I remember people were so upset! Quite a memory to have. I can also remember waiting for hours during the summer for that ride and the line started on Main St. At least there was entertainment in the queue once you got into the temple. - LilSterner  4536.8 #18 11:44AM

Hello , this is one of my favorite rides and yes it does have on of the longest queue lines ever for a Disney attraction. Indy is the only modern attraction that had a line snake all the was to main street other than the original star tours 1.0 this was before fasspasses existed and the wait time would be close to 6-10 hrs.This is a great ride but understand that with a lot of show elements this ride does go down a bit,remember it has a ton of stuff going on but they do a great job restarting it so please understand fellow mwr's. The vehicles are state of the art and a first for disney and the amusement park at the time it came out and the vehicle type is also used in dinosaur at wdw. The rolling ball has an incredible secrect ,but im not ruining it by saying what it is you can find this info on your own and hidden in the line is eyeore sign that everyone knows about and a time life magazine after the safety video room in the caged office and its highlighted with a magnifying glass is a vintage mickey mouse - pikarich  2897.4 #35 9:01AM

Good afternoon! This day in Disney history, Mar 1st, 1940. During a screening of "Bambi" after seeing the footage for the very 1st time, Walt Disney turned to the two animators, Frank Thomas & Milt Kahl (2 of walts 9 old men) w/tears in his eyes. He then says, "Thanks, fellows. That's great stuff, no kidding. Those personalities are pure gold." Walt seldom gave a direct compliment. So this wa  More...

Good afternoon! This day in Disney history Feb. 23rd, 1940. "Pinocchio" (based on the 19th century book by Carlo Collodi) Is generally released. Filmed in multiplane technicolor, It has cost a staggering $2.6 million to make. Disney only recouped about half of its budget. This film is felt by many film historians to be the most technically perfect of all the Disney animated features. Have you se  More...

My kiddos love this attraction at the parks as well! Good choice on a favorite part churro! ✨ - Duchess_SMK  5676.3 #14 1:49PM
This is absolutely a classic (as Churro rightly stated)! Also might I add that this film received 2 oscars: Best Original Score and Best Original Song for the world famous song, "When You Wish Upon a Star" I always loved this movie from early childhood. I did not know this was considered to be the "most technically perfect film" but I can see why. For its time, the animation is genius.. blending mechanical and human behavior perfectly. Even the animals are drawn with such accuaracy.. .if you watch Figaro, Geppetto's cat, see how soft and gently the movements are and try to remember... this is just a drawing... I bet you can't. My favorite part is when the Blue Fairy comes. I have such a crush on her! Thank you SMK for this all time classic Disney History and for sharing a movie we all love! - IMissDisney  1205.4 #114 3:02PM
Such a great description of Pinocchio! It would be awesome if they had the Blue Fairy character come out with Pinocchio at Disneyland. - kss4tink  217.7 #1638 3:06PM

😳 I'm confused with the date but, this is probably my favorite Disney movie. And my favorite part is when Stromboli finds a washer in his stack of coins, bites it and cusses up a storm (which is not in Italian). Then he gently and politely offers it to Pinocchio and Pinocchio happily accepts it. - philliprocks  878.7 #170 4:33PM

"Imagineering" is such the quintessential Disney term!! I love that word. Disneyland has so much Imagineering everywhere, from attractions to hidden Mickeys! One of the best examples of this is Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, where the "tiki room birds sing every day!" Over 200 animatronic birds, flowers, and tikis. What an awesome attraction where Imagineers made inventions! Thank you SMK! This is such a huge part of Disney!! You're awesome!!! - IMissDisney  1205.4 #114 1:21PM
