Good morning! This day in Disneyland history, April 10th, 1988: at the end of the day, Disneyland's "America Sings", housed in The Carousel Theater, (operating since June 1974) closes in Tomorrowland.America Sings was a 24 minute patriotic musical production that included  More...
I remember this fondly, though I only went on it once. I think I liked it so much because I love those old songs- when I was younger, my parent's cars never seemed to have radios (I cannot imagine life without sirius xmπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) so we always sang- among them were a few of these songs. Thanks so much for posting this – I will watch the video later when I have a little more time. I am also looking very forward to IASW today!! 😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3132.2 #26 7:57AM

I don't remember the Midget Autopia but I definitely remember the Junior and Tomorrowland Autopias. We started out on the Junior because it had a shorter height requirement, then graduated to the big one, which was very exciting! Thanks for another great post, Duchess! - debbiev  606.5 #248 8:49PM

#news The rumor has been confirmed by a more then one Disney CM and a few websites. The Lilly Belle is officially only available for club 33 members and VIP tours as of now.    More...
I kind of treat it like Walt's Apartment in a way that Walt used it and he used it as a place to entertain his guests during their visit in the park (it even has the same carpet as the apartment). It was kind of like a living museum in a way. From it being open to the public almost everyday, I could see how the car would get more use from all the guests it would carry. Like how the apartment is open to tours, but has its limits to what guests can see and touch, this is the same situation.Β  - BaseballMickey_CM  5301.6 #12 1:30PM
I can't appreciate that. I do however feel bad for those that never got to see it. Perhaps the tours will still be a viable option for some.  - Duchess_SMK  5089.4 #13 1:34PM
Again, this is a rumor until Disney officially announces it and/or it starts to be enforced in the park. - BaseballMickey_CM  5301.6 #12 1:47PM
Well it's posted backstage....and being enforced now. ::shrug::  - Duchess_SMK  5089.4 #13 2:19PM
Also, anyone who asks in city hall will be told that information. So it's public knowledge.  - Duchess_SMK  5089.4 #13 2:20PM
LilChurro, BabyChurro and I rode it last summer. It was a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I sat in the Johnny Depp chair, too. Felt like a Rock StarπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I understand why Disney is doing it, but a bummer for those that did not experience it. However, there are many things we will never get to experience in life. I will probably never experience a Plaid showing me about. I will probably never experience the Dream Suite or a suite at The Grand. 😊i am grateful for what I have experienced πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3132.2 #26 2:52PM

 Best Post of the Day 3-12-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, March 12th, 2013: The Fantasy Faire and Royal Hall opened in Disneyland.   One of the highlights of Fantasy Faire is the Royal Theatre, where you&rsq  More...
Wow! Cannot believe it's been a year already!! I think this is such a sweet area that fits right in with the castle and leading into fantasyland. I have only seen the Rapunzel show and loved the tierd humor- for the adults and children. Thanks for your history post, as always😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3132.2 #26 10:54AM
Those short videos are great, too! Thanks! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3132.2 #26 11:00AM
I know right? Seems like last week! I too love the Repunzel show! I haven't seen BATB yet. Next trip I hope! Thank you! So glad they finally worked! I was sweating! LOL - Duchess_SMK  5089.4 #13 12:21PM
We are the opposite. We have always seen BATB but not tangled. One day we even made it for the morning show of Tangled and for some reason the first show was BATB instead of Tangled. Maybe next time we will make it. - warchanted  93.4 #3396 11:51PM
Great post.  I know I'm in the minority but I didn't really ever spend time in the CPG, so I really love Fantasy Faire.  I think the shows are outstanding and glad that the princess M&G is well done and most importantly, OUT of the FL theater.  I love having three new live shows because of this move. - Sarafina  420.6 #431 10:37AM
Thanks for the compliment! 😊 Also, Thanks for sharing your 2 cents! I love the area as well! I think it was very well done! - Duchess_SMK  5089.4 #13 12:39PM
I have a special place in my heart for the carnation plaza gardens since my junior high marching band played there! - WallSchmee  29.9 #5050 1:15AM
I love the fantasy faire! I especially love it at night when it's quiet and calm. My 2 criticisms...the inside area of meet and greet/hall is that it is way too dark and stuffy in there. As a designer the need for natural light in a space if you can have it is crucial and I think they really missed the mark on that. Stained glass or some beautiful iron windows would have been perfect...also I think rapunzels tower is way too small. I know it fits with the scale of everything but I think it could have been a little more grand. Anyway...sorry for the rant! Thanks for the awesome post! πŸ˜€πŸ˜˜ - missariel33  1077.7 #116 12:12AM
