Interesting, Disneyland.com has finally put up the calendar for Oct 31st and Big Thunder is NOT listed as being closed for refurb. If it really is opening on time, I'm going to be so happy.If it is going to be extended, then this is a pretty bad move by DIsney of not announcing it by now. I guess we will wait and see....https://disneyland.disney.go.com/calendar/daily/#/ More...
For the first time in 9 years, Pixar will not be releasing a movie in summer. The Good Dinosaur is being delayed until Nov 2015 and will move several other big movies. Will not be a real summer without a Pixar movie!
Silly questions, but how do you tag a user in a post? I thought you just had to add the @ symbol before their username, but it's not seeming to work for me. Is it in the mobile version only? Is it case sensitive?
Has anyone else heard rumors of Club 33 being expanded. I heard this today from a friend who was there last night for Tony Baxter's retirement party. Sounds like they are going to create a new entrance and not use the one near Blue Bayou anymore!
So I have a question for those who use guest assistance cards. My boyfriend has trouble on stairs so we went to city hall and asked for a card and told the cm there that we just want to avoid stairs (for example, the indy stairs are not the easiest). The card we got only said to sit us in the front row of a vehicle or show and wasn't helpful at all (we couldn't use it on Midway Mania to avoid th More...
FYI, There was just a 5.1 earthquake in SoCal, so there may be ride closures. It wasn't strong (epicenter was south of Palm Springs, about 90 miles from DL) but enough that it was felt and may close rides.
Omg, I'm so excited. Saw a few pictures of the new Blue Sky Cellar exhibit on the Fantasy Faire and saw a great bit of info on a new food card that is going to be there. The new Maurice’s Twisted Treats outdoor vending cart which will serve twisted bread sticks and Dole Whip drinks!!!!!
So excited about that and can't wait to have a shorter line for a Dole Whip.
So how do you feel about going on an attraction with people who clearly know it well and start either telling jokes/lines BEFORE they happen on the attraction?
Last night I had a horrible JC experience because there was a guy on board who was LOUDLY telling all the skipper jokes before the skipper said it and laughing so loudly. And if the JC didn't tell the joke he wanted (since they have man More...
Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers. To read more about Walts love for trains

Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world! Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World. Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.
In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:
"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!
