I know there is at least a small chance of rain today. If it does happen, they move indoors like the waiting area for Great Moments With Lincoln. I have seen several characters in there with short wait lines when it's raining. 

I've also seen Alice & the Mad Hatter at the Hub in front of the Castle at around 10am during performances of the Disneyland Band and then at about 2pm they play musical chairs on Main Street (I think in front of Coke Corner, but I might be wrong about that location?!) Hopefully someone else will be able to clear it up for you. - Catski23  5.1 #0 9:16AM
You are correct - MelodyMouse  5505.6 #16 10:53AM
I always see them when I go. Some say you can ask city hall where and when.  If you have a chase card DCA has a chase meet n greet with free 5x7 - E-Ticket  1376.9 #111 10:17PM
After entering Disneyland at Mickey flower they have characters. Then all around flagpole and hub - E-Ticket  1376.9 #111 10:20PM

gedi0614 The Disney Visa photo op is in DCA Hollywood area next to the Monster Inc. ride. You don't need to sign up but they do have certain hours you can take the picture. It's around 11am to 1pm. - CoachDisney  79.0 #3816 5:01AM
CoachDisney thank you. I have seen it a couple of times but I didn't know and of course I didn't ask. I will definitely keep my eyes open next time   - gedi0614  18.3 #7116 10:03AM
@gedi0614 as CoachDisney said but I believe it is 10:30 - 1:30. And if you have more than one card different numbers each card gets a free print. I usually get two. Characters have been Daisy Minnie and Stitch. Rotating.  During Frozen the moved it to another location so ask where. Pictures are usually available after 1/2-1 hr - E-Ticket  1376.9 #111 7:05PM
And, both times we have gone, we have seen Stormtroopers walking through Tomorrowland right by Star Tours. - dianeburns1998  43.8 #4754 11:13AM
Also, there are 3 to 4 Winnie the Pooh characters near the exit of Winnie the Pooh ride and Splash Mtn. Princess Tiana wanders around Haunted Mansion area. Also we always go by Snow White's wishing well to see if any characters are hanging out there. - brigeet  403.4 #515 9:41PM

Another terrific post D_SMK! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»

Tagged in: Disney History  
I rode the skyway and definitely miss it but I feel like there are more pressing things to refurb and bring back ::ahem ALL of tomorrowland lol:: I love the Tiki room!!!! but I do wish it was still a restaurant and I remember before Aladdins oasis too! As for the treehouse I have mixed feelings- Love Tarzan and I like the refresh/redo but I miss classic Disney. And there is not enough homage paid to Walts live action films in my opinion in either park. Swiss family Robinson was the last vestige to his his 100% live action movie Β legacy.Β Thank you Duchess!!! Ps that first pic of Walt is 😍 - missariel33  2083.1 #65 12:13PM
Oh and  - missariel33  2083.1 #65 12:14PM
hi missariel33! ::giggles:: I guess it wouldn't really fit into Tomorrowland if they brought back all the old attractions though would it? ☺️ But I too loved all of em! Wish there was more room on the property so that could add a "Yesterland" with all the retired attractions of the past! THAT would be amazing! I agree with you, classic Disney will always be my favorite but I understand their need to be fresh and current. 😊 Thank YOU for answering my questions! Aβž• for you too!! So glad you enjoyed the pics! 😘 I just noticed Disneyland Twitter used the same photo on their tweet a little bit ago. πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 12:23PM
Yes! Duchess_SMK New is great! Can't wait to see what tomorrowland is going to be like once they incorporate all of the star war sand marvel! So exciting😁😁 - missariel33  2083.1 #65 12:45PM
Yes I rode the sky Buckets  But really remember the ones that held 4 people. And going through Matterhorn. I do miss them the view was spectacular.  The Tiki room has great memories. Still does. The Tree house was special because I loved the movie. My knees won't climb Tarzan's anymore. Love the history.  Absolutely fascinating. Like your take. missariel33.  - suzieq65  39.4 #4951 2:44PM

Always enjoyed the Sky Ride. I remember one night we took it over the Electric Parade; wish I had pictures. And always enjoy the Tiki Room; didn't know about the restaurant either. Favorite part was always the talking totems. And I remember the Tahitian Terrace. Think I've posted before about being scared of being dragged down to join the hula dancers.  😞 Β Another great post - you continue batting 1.000! - redsoxcarlos  1770.2 #80 7:24PM

The train stopping for the fireworks sounds really great! I would have loved to see that as described. Great post! QC!

Tagged in: Disney History  
I was one of those children that opened Small World.  I have posted that before, but that brought lots of memories back.  I met Walt, shook his hand and he spoke to each of us.  I didn't want to wash my hand, and I won't say how old I was, but very little!  It meant a lot even at that age I guess?  My voice is also on the 45 that we made with the Sherman Brothers in a studio that was sold at the parks.  I believe the 45 says it was recorded by a children's choir, which was us.  We were the International Children's Choir from Long Beach.  I was a soloist when we sang the song and I represented Columbia, and sang in Spanish, which I still remember.  Kind of feels special to be a part of such an iconic part of Disneyland.  Thanks for posting these, as always! - snowwannab  728.9 #239 6:57PM
