So. Much. Awesomeness in this post!!! I LOVE Alice!! My fave scene is the dancing cards. It makes me kinda dizzy (in a good way) The monarail what fun it was to ride in the front on my very first Disneyland trip! The Matterhorn used to scare the bajeZies outta me as a kid. Now it just is painful to ride. ๐Ÿ˜ข  The subs! In all their Mermaid glory (wish they had been around in the 80's) I only remember the sea monster in this ride, and it smelling like urine ๐Ÿ˜ž. What a great day in history for our beloved park!!!  - PixiePirateMaid  289.7 #841 6:33AM
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer all my questions! It's not often people do that! I agree about the Matterhorn I can't ride it anymore either with my bad back. It is sad. ๐Ÿ˜” The mermaids were pretty neat huh! ๐Ÿ˜ the smell memory though....๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜‚ Indeed, a huge day for Disneyland!! - Duchess_SMK  5353.8 #14 7:52AM

Sorry for the late reply and bump, but, not going to not respond to something so kind. ๐Ÿ˜Š I can't lie, this one took me about a week. ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆ so happy so many enjoyed it though!

Wonderful post! ๐Ÿ˜Š
I am not on here much anymore, but this caught my eye.  I was one of those kids in the choir that opened Small World.  I was pretty little, but do remember most of that day.  I got to shake hands with Walt. He was so kind, and made a point to speak to each one of us. Taking the older kids leads, I decided not to wash my hand for a week. That only lasted a few days with the plastic bag and rubber band!  We also made one of the 45's that was sold in the park, that went gold.  We recorded it in a studio with the Sherman Brothers.  The choir got to lead the Christmas parade for two whole weeks in the evenings, when they debuted the huge Small World dolls. Being backstage during the holidays every night was truly magical!  I believe Walt found the choir, because we were involved with Unicef and the People to People program.  Our signature song was "Let there be Peace on Earth".  I know the song is annoying to many, but if you remember what Walt's vision was, it may make it a little easier to handle. There isn't a time that I don't get a tear when I ride it, or hear the song. I have a rich Disney history in other areas, but this was the highlight.  - snowwannab  667.3 #233 11:07AM
I love your story!  So awesome! - MeridaFan  3185.5 #27 12:01PM
Thanks MeridaFan.  I forgot to mention the choir was The International Children's Choir of Long Beach.  Not many were from the country they represented, just wore the native costume.  I actually represented California, but for this Guatemala.  - snowwannab  667.3 #233 12:14PM
This is a wonderful story! So glad you shared it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜ - eviljules  559.8 #295 12:35PM

I don't think I remember that Animation building. But I sure do remember the little flip books that we kids would buy!  So much fun!  I think I remember the train. And I'm sure I must have been on it before.  I remember the geysers. Pretty cool stuff. Lots of anniversaries packed into the past few days!  The park was such a living, breathing, evolving place back in those days, wasn't it?  So much fun! - MeridaFan  3185.5 #27 9:53AM
Bet those were super neat! You're right! Lots going on this week. I'm having a hard time keeping up! ๐Ÿ˜‚ laundry is starting to pile up. ๐Ÿ˜ I love that the park is always changing, but I still do wish there was a way to keep everything. ๐Ÿ˜‚  - Duchess_SMK  5353.8 #14 10:30AM

He is!!  The actor is just awesome.  My daughters and I love his laugh.   - nittywitty  195.4 #1906 1:12PM
I'd still rather pay top dollar than have passes to all "the other" parks.  I'm so glad my daughters agree with me.  You get what you pay for.   At least I know my money to Disney goes to good use in sustaining BEAUTIFUL grounds, FABULOUS Cast Members and well maintained rides.  The list could go on.  It's tough to see price increases but it is a fact of life.   - nittywitty  195.4 #1906 10:51AM
My take on the price increase ๐Ÿ˜œ - Tom  6203.3 #10 10:47AM
I'm willing to pay the higher prices at Disneyland for a great experience and magical memories than going to the other parks for cheaper prices and then be cheated out of a memorable experience. I have not been to any other theme parks, other than Disney Parks, since I was a kid. For the passed decade I've been an AP and have enjoyed the park every week. If the day comes when the increase has become too great for me, then I will console myself by knowing that I was able to enjoy the parks as much as possible. However, I think I've gotten my money's worth every year ๐Ÿ˜ƒ - LaBelleParis  727.0 #201 12:33PM

I'd totally get that. Deserts tend to be too big for eating right after a big meal. That's one of the reasons I like The Spaghetti Factory resturaunts. They give you a small desert with the meal.  
I'm glad you put a quarter next to this so we could really see how tiny and cute it is. Looks like a jar of yummy to me๐Ÿ‹ - MinnieMyLove  128.7 #2855 7:44AM
