Great read! Really enjoyed the information about the original concept with the pink elephants. Thank you for another fun history lesson! - Atora  1962.7 #58 5:31AM

We used to ride Dumbo when the churros were little. Maybe it's time to ride again an get an elephant's eye view of Disneyland. Neat to see the video of how it evolved. The longest we've probably wait it is 20 minutes. Do they still give out the feather? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3901.8 #22 6:57AM
They do still hand out feathers (with little bite marks all over them ๐Ÿ˜‚) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.0 #338 7:14AM
I think it depends on who's working because when we rode last trip they didn't hand out feathers. ๐Ÿ˜” my kiddos were bummed. Great views up there!  - Duchess_SMK  5550.8 #14 8:02AM

Good afternoon! This day in Disney History, July 18th: Disneyland, Great Moments with Mr.Lincoln , The Red Wagon Inn (open since opening day), re-opens as the Plaza Inn and Splash Mountain all officially open to the general public!1955: It was a humid Monday morning, park hours that day, 10am-10pm. Approximately 50,000 people   More...
From what I remember, wasn't Mr Lincoln already playing at the park and a second show was made for the Illinois pavillion for the '64 World's Fair, making it the only Disneyland attraction from the Worlds Fair to be playing on both coasts at the same time?  - BaseballMickey_CM  5875.7 #13 12:05AM
It was vice versa. It opened here while it was still playing at the worlds fair. The fair lasted until October I believe.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2058.8 #54 5:57AM
^^thank you ma'am! My you were up early! Baby doing okay today IDVandalSkipperCM ?! - Duchess_SMK  5550.8 #14 7:33AM
Duchess_SMK she's great!  I had to get up early to get myself ready for work before taking her to child care. I hope you're doing well!   - IDVandalSkipperCM  2058.8 #54 8:42AM
That explains it. I remember seeing it at the World's Fair in June 1965, and was a bit confused on it opening here the same time. I actually saw all four Disney attractions at the Fair, Lincoln, Small World, Carousel of a Progress and the dinosaurs. So I got an early baptism in Disney! - redsoxcarlos  932.8 #156 8:50AM
Very cool โ˜ @redsoxcarlos - MickeyLumboCM  559.0 #301 3:45PM
Also, wasn't while designing Lincoln's face, that the imagineer turned the mask inside out and realized it seemed like the eyes were following him, which then led to DL being the first to have an attraction (Haunted Mansion) with the faces that follow you as you walk by.  design by accident, I always think that is so cool!! - secretagentangel  1234.9 #102 1:17AM
Yep. The illusion is that your mind can't process the light around the negative concaved shape so it compensates by telling you the item is moving instead of the lighting from which you're viewing. Disney actually owns a patent on this design if I recall. - CM_Shadowgamer  2317.1 #46 4:53AM

Wasn't there also another story with Mr. Lincoln arriving late the World's Fair due to the baseball game? Also, the auctioning pirate in POTC now I think used to be a Lincoln AA too. If you look at the face and beard, it kind of looks like Lincoln.  - BaseballMickey_CM  5875.7 #13 11:38PM

Happy 59th Birthday Disneyland! Great post to remind of how it was. I cannot imagine ONLY 2 boats for the Jungle Cruise- glad they got a few more๐Ÿ˜‚. That pic of the chairs you mentioned, I liked the shades, above. Though at 101ยฐ, there does not look like much shade and back then, pretty sure the guests did not bring their CamelBaks. How frightening in Fantasyland๐Ÿ˜ฑ. That picture of the man trying to get his toddler, I can't place where that is but, goodness, BUSY! ย I think I would have been delighted with walking through the castle and Peter Pan's Flight.

Good morning! This day in Disney history, July 15th, 2005: Space Mountain reopens after a two-year refurb which started in April, 2003 and Turtle Talk with Crush opens in DCA. Space Mountains track layout remains the same but the the updated version features a new theme and special effects. A special opening ceremony is held with guest speaker,   More...
Thank you so much for this post about Space Mountain!! I cried so hard when I watched it. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of the main reason why I absolutely love this attraction. Well hear it goes: My dad, who passed away in 2002, loved astronomy. He loved everything including the stars, planets, space shuttles. We would have never ending conversations about this subject. It was his passion. I continued to be passionate about it. My dad worked with the Space program at Collins radio. When I watched this and saw Niel Armstrong I really became emotional. My dad had met him. What an honor to meet such a great man!! Anyways, I don't have to tell you how much Space Mountain means to me. It is THE BEST ride in the universe!!!! Not only for the thrill, but it connects me to my dad!! I believe he loved Space Mountain as much as I did!! Anyways, I will especially make sure I ride it tonight in his honor!! Thanks again!! - Superspacemountainfan  67.7 #3858 3:45PM

You made me cry! Such sweet memories for you! Thanks so much for sharing them with us! ๐Ÿ˜ ((hugs))  - Duchess_SMK  5550.8 #14 8:05PM
First let me apologize for my lengthy 2 cents. Ok, so space mnt was closed and completely redone for the two years so it could reopen for Disneyland 50th anniversary, which it did have a soft opening 2 days before. the floor of space mnt was lowered about 20ft more for safety and earthquake safety and the tracks where redone 100 % to the original layout and the trains redone. lost was the glow in the dark trains and slowly some of the windows where closed from the then people mover track and other areas. the ride also got a new soundtrack and a special model was on display inside the opera house which showed the exact layout of space mountain.Did you know that every disneyl park has a space mnt attraction , which our is number 2 built after wdw and different in design and ride vechicles. our space mnt top speed can reach up to 35 mph and there use to be the biggest hidden mickey which is still there in the dark no longer shown but as you came out of the launch tunnel there was a huge 3 rock meteor and a blasted mickey carving on itbut you can only see it if you flash (not from me) of if the lights ever ome on and also as you climb the countdown ramp look on the right side wall and see a hidden donald made out of stars. Turtle crush seen it love it very fun and unpredictable which makes itso much fun and a great ac room indeed - pikarich  2598.0 #37 8:17AM
