#live The Fred Gurley is running today! The oldest of all the Disneyland Railroad steam engines! It joined Disneylands fleet on March 28th, 1958. But this engine’s 120-years old! Named after Fred G. Gurley, who was president of the Santa Fe Railway from 1944-1957. Built by Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Penn., in 1894.
This day in history.. Tee hee. Thanks for the history 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3368.7 #26 5:28PM
I was ecstatic to see the Fred Gurley running last Saturday.  The Fred Gurley was out of service since the beginning of June because of a broken axle.    - ckholliday  249.7 #1204 5:58PM

I loved the skyway. I'm pretty sure it's my cousin's fault it was closed and removed. He would get a little box of rock candy and throw it at people. If he ran out of candy he would try and spit on people. My favorite part of the tiki room is when the ladies drop down and have us sing along. Unless Maynard's there then his intro is my favorite part of the show. I liked the Swiss tree but kids don't know of the movie or the book so it makes since to change it to Tarzan. I think it's a good change and lots of fun. - Bassplayerswife  117.5 #3045 10:20AM

Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 17th, 2008: Toy Story Midway Mania! has it's official grand opening ceremony in Disney California Adventure. The first guests arrived outside DCA at 6am to start a line that would eventually grow to hold o  More...
great post , the longest i waited for this is 60 minutes lol on . the cms do a great job with an average of 40 minutes but 60-90 is ok on busier days.at first i thought fasspass would be great but do a low capacity and 2 vechicles load would make the stand-by line even longer.i have been able to hit over the 300,000 mark with my arm being super soar lol,mr.potatoe head is advance tech too as cameras are able to point out guest to in interact with.the ride had an upgrade when toy story 3 came out replacing the boo-peep pop ballons. throughout the ride are easter eggs that if you trigger correctly will open up higher point targets.the inside of the ride is a tribute to alot of classic board games and others. for japans version when the ride first opened pics where on social medias showing the wait time at 8 and 10 hr long.one fun fact i found in a toy story mania documentary is on the ring toss game it was modified quickly. the original game was programmed to act like real ring toss making it harder to land the rings on the targets, the change was to give the targets a magnetic pull around them making it way easier to land on them. - pikarich  2306.0 #46 9:15AM
You always add so much to my posts! Thanks pikarich! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 6:34AM

This surely is one of my fav rides in DCA. The queue is great with Mr.PotatoHead as the barker. And thank goodness they put those umbrellas up- we used to have to just stand in the sunπŸ”₯. I don't recall any of that opening day attraction stuff, as we were there. I just remember being in line near Ariel's Grotto and the line no longer moving. We sat down in our spots and waited. After some time, we were finally told the ride had broken down. Then the  line moved again, and stopped. It was really hot that day on the Pier and finally we decided to call it a day after waiting in line for 3 hours. Lesson learned that day, for sure... Go find something else to do and come back later😊😊 thanks Duchess 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3368.7 #26 6:40AM
Oh yes! That's right they didn't used to have those 'S! Wow! 3 hours then being told it was broken, now THAT's a bummer! Yes! I couldn't wait that long for anything. I'd have to come back. Especially with kiddos! Thank YOU churro! πŸ‘―πŸ˜˜πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 7:19AM
This is one of my favorites! It would be fabulous to have shorter wait times. However, a 60min. isn't too bad because the line is constantly moving. The bad part is the stinky smell from the plants. My favorite part of the ride is Ham's and the army men. There is just something exciting about being able to throw eggs and break plates! Once again, thanks for the wonderful post.  - Bassplayerswife  117.5 #3045 7:37AM

 Best Post of the Day 6-15-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 15th, 1957: Don DeFore's Silver Banjo Barbecue restaurant opens in Frontierland. The very first grad night is held in 1961. Club 33 opens in NOS in 1967, and Cars Land and Buena Vista Street officially opens in 2012! 1957  More...
What a fun filled history post! So many wonderful attractions opened and such changes around the Parks! A mere nickel for a bag of Fritos! mmm! I like that! It would be pretty incredible to hear Aunt Jemima singing to me whilst I ate Mark Twain buckwheat pancakes. I wonder what songs were in her line up? The prices at The Silver Banjo, a place I had not heard of, look pretty tempting – I'll take the spareribs plate and a lemonadeπŸ‹ bc I see they do not offer CokeπŸ˜‚. That picture of the Grad kids rubbing their feet is pretty funny and I agree, I'm sure her feet hurt a bit more than his- but gosh the way they are dressed is sooo😍😍!! I also like the snuggle Matterhorn picture... Not sure how easy that was to do with a blazer onπŸ˜‚. I really wish that our high school would have offered it, I definitely would have gone to the grad night and wore probably something totally 80s- maybe pastel dress?? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.  I really like the outfit and pillbox hat on the lady standing next to the Club33 door. So classy. I have never been to Club 33- I would love to see the inside for my love❀️ of history, take in the view on the balcony of NOS and ROA, and perhaps enjoy the food😊😊 (I will just bet that the salmon was delicious – you know I love it, tooπŸ‘―) When I first heard that DCA was going to be made over, I wasn't quite sure because I was so saddened to see the CALIFORNIA letters come down. We always enjoyed taking photos next to the initials of our little churros. When we finally did go to DCA, for the first time, I had tears rolling down my face because of the beauty and how it just looked like it *belonged*.  I was lucky to eat at the Carthay, a year ago, with some wonderful MWers at the Reunion Weekend in the Snow White room. What a spectacular place that was- and so full of detail. As for favorite dish, I'm not sure-I just took it all in, but those cheese biscuits SURE were tastyπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ LOVE your collage! You and the girls look so cute and they are so little! Thank you very much for such a great history post 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3368.7 #26 7:57AM
So sorry for the late reply! yesterday was super busy! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all my questions my sweet friend! Spareribs and lemonade! 😊 good choice! I just knew you'd love those grad night pics! They really are cute huh? Lol, that blazer did look quite snug! You would have looked so cute in that pastel dress! I hope you get to go to club 33 someday soon! Everyone should get to experience it at least once! Mmm yes!Salmon is our fav! πŸ‘― what sweet memories you shared about your churros! Thank you for that! I agree those busquits are πŸ’£! πŸ˜‹ thanks again! πŸ˜˜πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 5:28AM
Thanks again Duchess for such an awesome post.  Thoserestaurants you mentioned were before my time.  I had never even heard of them, but I love the prices.  Haven't had the pleasure of club 33.  Maybe when I win the lottery.   Lol.  As for grad nites I think they were more special back then.  Dressing up makes it a glorious occasion and having the park open all night just for Grads was awesome.  I don't like The way they do it now.  It takes away all the special glory of an all night celebration just with other grads.  Now, it is set up as just a trip to Disneyland.  Lastly, Carsland is a great addition.  However, my most favorite addition is Buena Vista street.  Love the Trolleys, jazz, and rag time dancers.  Character outfits are also very cute!  Thanks again for the wonderful post and good luck with that little bun in the oven that you think may be a trouble maker.  :). My son is 10 now and he was a trouble maker from the start of conception.  However, I love him with all my heart and he keeps me laughing and on my toes.  Lol. :) - Gabster1forDodgers  502.0 #349 10:10AM
My sincere pleasure! So happy you enjoy them! I agree! I love those prices too! πŸ˜‚you don't need to win the lottery, just need to be invited! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰ I bet you'll get to go someday you watch! I a also agree with you about the grad nights! The dressing up part made it more fun and special! I could live on BVS if they let me! πŸ˜‚ Love the time period and the music! Thank you so much for the well wishes for my little man on the way! I've accepted the challenge of the trouble maker, hubby's a red head, and all my kiddos are usually born red, you know what that means. πŸ˜‚ thanks again for your reply! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 5:34AM
My cousin and I used to love to eat at Aunt Jemima's!  We would go there for dinner, even. I don't think we cared what time of day it was. We loved pancakes!  And they had every kind imaginable. I specifically remember those buckwheat pancakes. We thought we were so cool and worldly ordering up pancakes we could never get at home. Haha!  It was a lot of fun back in those days. Great memories for me. 😊. Carsland opening. We were not there that day, but our long planned week long vacation began two days later, on Father's Day. I know I picked up some souvenirs back then. I kinda tend to do that a lot. 😜 This was our first Disney trip in nearly three years. Getting to see Carsland was a bonus!  That Sunday was surprisingly not that crowded. We got fastpasses for RSR and only had about a 20 minute wait in line. Of course, we all thought it was awesome!  We all loved Maters' ride and still do. The kids went on Luigis' Tires. I always wondered why it wasn't a little bit faster.   Reading your list of old sponsors really brings back memories. I remember Frito Lay. I remember Sunkist Oranges. I remember when you could actually get ice cream at the Carnation Cafe!  I remember the Pendleton wool shop in Frontierland that my mom and aunts and grandma would always love to go shopping in and come out with something new and plaid. Sigh. Oh, to go back for just one day and see all those giggling ladies having fun shopping. Or to meet them for some spare change to buy our pancakes while they wait with their men in line for the next Horseshoe Revue show. That was my childhood. And I wouldn't trade those memories for anything. Thank you, beautiful Duchess, for another lovely trip down memory lane. 😘 - MeridaFan  3185.5 #27 8:34AM
I'm super bummed out I missed out on the pancake house! I LOVE me some pancakes! You,souvenirs no way? LOL I could totally picture in my mind your walk to the Horseshoe Revue. Such a blessed childhood you had to grow up visiting Disneyland. I hope my kiddos grow up to have such happy memories! Thanks for taking the time to share with us sweetheart! I really appreciate it! xx - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 9:37AM

 Best Post of the Day 6-14-14
Can't sleep so....Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 14th, 1958 Alice in Wonderland opened in Fantasyland. In addition, in 1959: three major attractions were christened!  The Monorail, The Matterhorn Bobsleds and The Submarine Voyage!  1958: Alice and Wonderland was the only Fantasyland   More...
So. Much. Awesomeness in this post!!! I LOVE Alice!! My fave scene is the dancing cards. It makes me kinda dizzy (in a good way) The monarail what fun it was to ride in the front on my very first Disneyland trip! The Matterhorn used to scare the bajeZies outta me as a kid. Now it just is painful to ride. 😒  The subs! In all their Mermaid glory (wish they had been around in the 80's) I only remember the sea monster in this ride, and it smelling like urine 😞. What a great day in history for our beloved park!!!  - PixiePirateMaid  289.7 #841 6:33AM
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer all my questions! It's not often people do that! I agree about the Matterhorn I can't ride it anymore either with my bad back. It is sad. πŸ˜” The mermaids were pretty neat huh! 😍 the smell memory though....πŸ˜·πŸ˜‚ Indeed, a huge day for Disneyland!! - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 7:52AM
This is an amazing history post--I loved the part about Meredith Willson. Thanks for taking the time to put these articles together, I know it takes forever to put together things like this! - Admin 3:59PM
Sorry for the late reply and bump, but, not going to not respond to something so kind. 😊 I can't lie, this one took me about a week. πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ so happy so many enjoyed it though! Made it totally worth it! That 76 trombone story will never leave my mind. Can't wait to walk down Main Street and think about that! Thank YOU Admin!  - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 9:13AM

Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 6th, 1952: "Susie, the Little Blue Coupe" directed by Clyde Geronimi, is released by RKO. A personal favorite, the cartoon short is based on a short story by Bill Peet (A children's book illustrator and before  More...
Although I was not born yet when this came out… I still remember watching it as a little kid and I still love that cartoon to this day. Thanks for the nostalgic view into the past, and may all Disney fans enjoy this forever! - DisneyDavidEMT  1392.9 #86 9:34AM
It's a great one huh? Thank YOU for always supporting my posts! ((Hugs))  - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 2:28AM
I always liked this one. The Bill Peet/Disney cartoons are always great. I was showing a few of them to my boys not too long ago. They really need to make a Bill Peet collection on disc - philliprocks  727.7 #201 9:51AM
That's a great idea! πŸ“ you should write a letter, to who I don't know but someone should! 😊 - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 2:29AM
I remember this short. Love how it served as an inspiration for Cars. I did not know that! Now I know why I love this short. Makes me cry just like the movie did.  - RadiatorSprings4Ever  623.5 #262 9:25PM
Makes me cry every time too! But happy tears! Hope you have a great weekend ma'am! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5382.0 #14 2:31AM
Oh, this is the sweetest cartoon! My sister and I were always so excited when it came on!  Did not know that it served as inspiration for Cars--great piece of trivia! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.3 #343 8:15AM
