Will always remember this bridge walkway to carnation plaza and swinging the nights away! Sing, sing, sing! Back in the day Disney had famous big band musicians perform here. Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Tex beneke, bob Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Ray Anthony and the Glenn Miller orchestra (sans Miller as he was killed in ww2) to name a few. I would have loved to dance to these guys.   More...

Another cool picture! Really like what you do with long exposures.  - redsoxcarlos  4130.5 #40 7:40AM
Thanks! 2 people walked through as I was taking the shot (shutter speed was at 15 sec) and they thought they ruined the pic.  I told them they didn't and showed them this pic and told them about long exposure shots.  They were surprised how it turned out. - SorcererD91  4985.1 #29 8:36AM

I would love being paged to come and ride, obviously would have to stay in the area.

This attraction was the first to have/test a concept where Guests would sign up for a time to ride the attraction, stay in the area, then get notified when they could ride. Maybe something we can see in the future?  - BaseballMickey  8088.1 #13 4:28PM

We used to park as close as we could to the monorail and we'd walk back to the car for food and drinks, we were young and couldn't afford to always get food in the park. We used all our money for the 365 premium passes. When they put up the fencing and forced you to take trams we chose not to renew.

Awesome! Trying to figure where you're standing, looks like backside or the east side, no tomorrowland terrace area? My husband used to swing the skyway bucket on me I would yell to stop and he'd do it more! I think someone jumped out and they closed them, can't remember. Think it was on the news.

I was 9yrs old and I had brand new pink patent leather shoes I insisted on wearing cause they matched my summer dress...πŸ˜† - carminaire  907.5 #223 5:19PM

grapesoda and RadiatorSprings4Ever I like a bench or curb seating (limited) because it's more comfortable and because you are slightly elevated above everyone else, those spots are just to the left or right of center, directly in front of the castle. Everyone is usually seated in that area (on the ground)  once the fireworks begin. I would recommend 1-1/2 to 2 hours prior to fireworks. And it's definitely wall-to-wall after the first parade. - teapotsandteacups  1837.4 #103 12:55PM

Hi!  Favorite sandwich?  Probably turkey and avocado. But I'm really craving a French dip right now!  We were talking about it this weekend and I still haven't had one!  I do prefer chips with my sandwiches. Something about the difference in texture. However if I'm sharing with Little Skipper, I will get soup otherwise she won't eat any sandwich!   - IDVandalSkipperCM  2638.8 #58 10:10PM
Funny how she likes soup. Turkey and avocado sound very good. You're the second person to want a French dip tonight. Do you ever put your chips in your sandwich? Maybe little skipper would like it that way? - secretagentangel  8623.6 #11 11:16PM

Saturday's like before but they don't list the bands on their website like they used to, if you like a particular band you have no idea if they are playing until you get there.
