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

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  728.8 #231 6:57PM
I remember you posting that and I'm so happy you brought it up again! Seriously the coolest thing I think I've read on one of my posts! So so amazing! What a cool peace of history! Thanks again!! Loved reading that! πŸ˜πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  6005.3 #15 8:38PM

Snowwannab what an incredible experience for you to be a part of! Must be a fantastic memory! :) - Bunnie  466.3 #426 10:12PM
 Wonderful post. Yes I did ride the mine trains, many times, loved it. By favorite part of a Small World is the Eiffel Tower. There is a doll half way up the tower that represents Mary Blair. The doll is dressed in Blair's typical fashion of the day. - jacdanfan  8670.7 #5 10:42AM
Thank you for answering all of my questions! Aβž•πŸ˜˜  I'll have to look for that doll next trip! Thanks for adding that!  - Duchess_SMK  6005.3 #15 11:16AM
The doll is difficult to see, it is somewhat dark and you have to pass the tower and look back over your shoulder. - jacdanfan  8670.7 #5 12:55PM
thank! I'll be looking!  - Duchess_SMK  6005.3 #15 5:21PM
Great to know, I'll be looking for that too, wish it was placed just a tiny bit more prominent tho - Bunnie  466.3 #426 10:14PM

Thanks so much Tom! I wish I could have seen the fireworks from there too! You're very kind to let me know you enjoyed this! Thanks again!  - Duchess_SMK  6005.3 #15 3:22AM
Thank you @@Duchess_SMK! I know these take a ton of work and I really missed them whilst you were so busy with the new baby!  I always learn something I did not know or remember something that I experienced! I never rode  the mine train but wish that and a few other past attractions would come back!  - secretagentangel  1555.9 #95 8:56PM
SAA! Hi! Thank you darlin! I'm still crazy busy. But I do try and still write posts for the opening and closing of most attractions. 😊 I'm with you! I wish everything could have stayed....but oh boy, we'd need a bigger park! 😜 - Duchess_SMK  6005.3 #15 3:24AM

Last Wednesday on Wednesdays With Walt at the Opera House they had a guest speaker that has done the voice of Goofy for the last 28 years. He had some good stories and did some other character voices live. Several Goofy short films too. Glad I went!

Glad to hear they cleaned the film up

I'm surprise at you guys didn't say something before. Yes the left side theater had some issues with the middle projector causing some darkness in the middle and the colors to be a little off. I was able to ride soaring yesterday for the first time since the refurbishment and am happy to report that this is now fix as I got a great ride experience and video on it but got a few photo bomb feet so I won't post that lol. I heard about the projector issue through other sites and wonder how nobody on my said anything so happy to see it was fix now - pikarich  3937.9 #27 12:44PM
