Greetings fellow MWers. I guess this news would pertain mostly to the NorCal members because its regarding the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. I'm not sure if many of you are aware of the "Animate Your Night" events they host, which are for adults only because they serve cocktails, museum is open after hours to those attending, and sometimes they have music and a presentation in the More...
I believe I'll try and do this.... thanks for sharing!! - DisneyFanZoe

Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 18th,1967. The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction (my personal favorite) opens in New Orleans Square. The debut kicks off w/great excitement, as a group of surly sea-dogs, led by Wally Boag, takeover the sailing ship Columbia before bursting through the new attractions' doors w/a battering ram! (Pictured below) All the figures in the attraction are More...
I don't remember my first ride on POTC, although I'm sure it was the year it opened (I was 10). It was my mother's favorite ride. She wouldn't do roller coaster type rides, or spinning, or drop rides. Yet she would giggle and scream during POTC's drops saying it was just perfect for her. The background story wasn't readily available, but my mom was a history teacher and used POTC to teach me about Lafitte, the era, and pirates in general. She knew the song by heart, and would softly sing it throughout the whole ride. Her last visit was in the Fall of 1997, but every time I go on it I can't help but think of her and how much she enjoyed it. It's not my absolute #1 favorite attraction, but it holds the most memories. - Gia

What sweet memories! Thank you for sharing! That's what DL is about...families making memories together! - brittandkell 288.6 #679 9:49PM
My first visit to DL was in 1973. My then boyfriend (now hubs) took me to the park on a very rainy Sat morn. First place we went was Pirates. When we exited it had stopped raining and the sun was shining on ROA. After riding Pirates and seeing this beautiful park shining I was so overcome with emotion I'll never forget it. That was the moment I fell in love with Disneyland. - DisneyGrandma

Awe, how romantic. 💏Thank you for sharing that with all of us! 😍 - Duchess_SMK 3291.4 #11 10:00AM
The Walt Disney Family museum has a story from Walt about the ride. Walt wanted to show his wife what he had been working on, but the ride was not complete and as a construction site, dirt was prevalent, but Walt laid down floorboards to allow his wife to walk through and not get her dress dirty. A dreamer, a genius, and a gentleman. - campy

I taped many programs on the early Disney channel when they aired many of the WOC and other programs showcasing DL early days and have this debut on one of the VHS tapes. - splashphotoCM

If you like lemon cake, then you will LOVE this bumblebee lemon honey cupcake! You know it will be moist the second they hand it to you because it is surprisingly heavy. The frosting tastes like lemon honey cheesecake, but it actually was buttercream. The cake tasted like (very moist) lemon pound cake, and it had a tart lemon filling. Very yummy! Two if us shared it because it was so big! We g More...
Before its too late, I wanted to recognize our wonderful @HMACIF for being one of the top MWers of the week for all her wonderful quality content she has posted from her recent trip to the parks! I know I am not alone in appreciating her fresh take on old favorites, as well as showing us all new things we have never seen before! Thank you, Ms. Churro!
Aww! Thank you all so much!! It was my absolut pleasure to do this. I had such a blast! My lil churros had fun taking pics with their cameras, too. They saw some real cool stuff and really realized that Disneyland is NOT all about 'how many rides you can get on', but to notice the wonderful details, as well! :D 😊😊 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint

How nice that they are learning that at such a young age. It takes some of us a lot longer to get it! - meridafan 1038.1 #83 3:55PM
It was kinda cute bc I would take a picture, then sometimes they were RIGHT behind me, taking the same shot. and always, look UP! :D - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 1802.5 #42 3:58PM
So cute! Someone should take a picture of that! Standing behind mom with their cameras. 😀 - meridafan 1038.1 #83 4:16PM

Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan. 3rd,1965. Disneyland's 10th anniversary officially kickes off. The park debuted its Tencennial Parade & in the evening, Walt himself introduced new attractions that were coming to the park on Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
This television episode also featured Julie Reihm - the very first Disneyland Ambassador who he refers to as Miss Disne More...
Is Mary Popoins flying? I think we need a flying Mary Poppins! She would be awesome for the fireworks. Especially since Julie Andrews narrates. - KissDclown

I think Churro may fight me for it! 😂 - Duchess_SMK 3291.4 #11 3:00PM
I'm OK with wrestling matches. - madsdad 1130.4 #72 3:15PM
It would look good on her! - ShariRenee 1562.2 #50 3:35PM
I guess I should have said it would look good on both of you, well maybe madsdad should just wear it! - ShariRenee 1562.2 #50 5:02PM
Speaking of madsdad wearing things, where are the pics of him sporting the "I Lost" sandwich board and wearing a tutu from the Bronco Bet?? - NotSoDapperDan 303.3 #595 5:08PM

Thank you for posting this! Sometimes I think we forget about the smallest things in our lives that bring memories flooding back...like Walt's voice and watching the Wonderful World of Color and waiting for Tink to fly on to the tv screen, wave her wand to say goodnight...thank you again for this! - mrscttlemstr

Paging @TheNewTrent you had requested The New Test Track. What a ride!! Top left is the staging area, top right is the vehicle entrance zone, middle simulates the "aerodynamic" stats of your sim car. And the bottom is what I call the "power portal" it is the last of the dark ride before you get out on the track.
