Buena Vista Street trolley fun fact - the numbers 717 and 623 are two important Disney days. I imagine you know the 717, but can you guess the 623? Let's show those stickers!

Tour #7: And here is the conclusion of my tour experience. The Tour came full circle, ending as Buena Vista Street does, at the majestic Carthay Circle Theatre. We got to listen to Walt talk about the night of the December 21,1937, Snow White premiere & got a feel for just how important and special that night was for him & those attending. One of those teary eye moments! Afterwards, our guide  More...

Thank you for the great review, looking forward to doing this tour. - jacdanfan  8086.8 #4 5:43AM

Tour #6: Of course Carsland is a featured stop on the Tour. You get to learn some of John Lasseter's history - from Disney animator, to Pixar creator & innovator, to dreamer of Carsland USA. Fun fact - John once took his large family on a Route 66 road trip in an RV where he got lots of ideas and inspiration for the wonders of Carsland! Can you imagine a road trip with five kids?!

Tour #5: After going in the 1901 lounge, the tour went through the other parts of DCA. We started in Condor Flats (named for the birds that fly near Edwards Air Force base) through Grizzly Peak to Paradise Pier. Did you know the elevation of Grizzy Peak, 1401 feet, is a nod to the address of a certain animation studio? Along the way, we got to experience 3 attractions - the plaid escorted way!  More...

There are a lot of special photos of Walt's early days in 1901, including pictures of his family (see prior post about wedding photo), informal pics of Walt, and ones from his early days starting up the   More...

I'm sorry - what's your question?  Where is he standing - by the Storyteller statute or where is the 1901 Lounge - to the right of the Carthay public enterance. - poppinspenguin  244.8 #1316 5:35AM
Sorry, to be more clear. I was asking about when you said "its kinda like the shadow of figures on that one window in the load of space on Star tours."  I was wondering where on there is the window. - keepmovingforward  143.7 #2700 5:22AM
It's in the load area with all the luggage & old droids.  Sorry! - poppinspenguin  244.8 #1316 4:11AM
Oh yeah - and notice that 1901 doesn't follow the address convention I mentioned in yesterday's post.  1901 is, of course, an homage to Walt's year of birth! - poppinspenguin  244.8 #1316 5:48AM
Very neat - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4976.1 #18 7:06AM
I've gotten to see Walt's shadow. I was lucky enough to win a tour of Buena Vista St. with an imagineer last year which including a surprise visit to 1901. It was fun. I'd love to be able to go back for drinks though. - PrincessTiannaBeignet  277.5 #983 12:26PM
