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...

Sounds like an awesome tour!  I would love to know which rides,though. Could you DM them to me, please?  There are certain rides I just will not go on!  So I would not want my $ wasted on an otherwise great tour. 😁.  Both come to mind. πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  3260.2 #27 9:12AM
Thanks for the info on the plain building. I always wondered why it was so plain looking compared to everything else.  - DisneyGrandma  682.8 #237 9:43AM

Tour #4: One of the cool parts of the Tour is getting to go into and look around the lounge at 1901. We were not allowed to take any photos, but you can easily search the MW Lounge for images. 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...

Thanks, we are thinking of doing this next trip. Where on Stat tours is that? - keepmovingforward  92.5 #3465 5:19AM
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  233.2 #1422 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  92.5 #3465 5:22AM
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  233.2 #1422 5:48AM
Very neat - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3943.9 #23 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  227.4 #1502 12:26PM

Tour #3: Our Plaid's name was Michael, and as all plaids, he was very helpful, polite, & knowledgeable. He had a couple of others along the way, CMs who helped make the tour very special! So, we start on Buena Vista Street, which progresses from Walt's first days in CA as an animator (Kingswell Photo, Oswald's, Mortimor's.) through to his triumphant opening night of Snow White premiere at the C  More...

Tour #2: The tour begins with check in at the Chamber of a Commerce in DCA at 9:30a (tour starts at 10a). Unlike the WIWF Tour at DL, you go into the parks with all other guests. There isn't a separate enterance in the morning for the tour. After you get your ticket (need your confirmation number), a Plaid takes you through a CM Only Door (!!), into a waiting room with complimentary water, tea  More...

Disney California Story Guided Tour Post #1: Earlier this week, my sisters & I took this tour, which first started 7-17-14 (7-17 being an important Disney Day!). The 3 hr tour was informative & enjoyable but not yet as magical as the Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour in DL. The CS Tour included 3 hrs of walking all over DCA, with a short break half way thru. We also received a commemorative pin; l  More...

#HauntedMansionHoliday. Here are some of the details of the attic overlay. Is your name on the list?
Mine is on the first list! I can never get a good picture of it because it's on the bent part that's very dark lol - thatgirljenn  888.8 #164 9:53AM
Mines on both lists. One with a good pumpkin and one with a naughty skull. - CM_Shadowgamer  2333.0 #46 1:07PM
I totally saw your name. Was going to ask if it was on purpose. - Taunton  120.6 #3016 4:39PM
The lists are based on the Cast Members that work it or help decorate it. We have multiple Matt/Matthews at Mansion, so it's been there before I started. - CM_Shadowgamer  2333.0 #46 9:20PM
Was it true that the wait for this was 2 hrs yesterday? - poohbearandyy  38.4 #4740 1:20PM
We rode first thing yesterday, & I only recall seeing the wait times of about an hour. Β But it was closing intermittently, so I could imagine there were some people who waited longer! - poppinspenguin  233.2 #1422 1:37PM

Seasonal dish at Rancho del Zocalo, as requested.
That's pretty cool but being this is my heritage dish I can't possibly pay that much for a tamale I can pay a $1 for that's handmade lol just the Mexican American in me that can't do it.  - MarshaMouse  3936.7 #24 6:22PM
Agreed!  I can get 1 dozen of the most amazing homemade tamales for $13.  Free last year from one of my room parents!   - DisneyPiratePrincess  66.5 #3902 8:28PM
Seriously a dozen cost as much as a plate there. - MarshaMouse  3936.7 #24 9:32PM
I hear what you're saying and yet, that's kind of the whole thing about Disneyland. It's ✨magical✨ and while I can get a whole half gallon of ice cream for $4, I can also enjoy ONE scoop for that at DL. 😊 it doesn't seem to bother me when I'm there😍 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3943.9 #23 10:25AM
