Thanks you. So much work you making these fantastic posts. I love the attraction thanks to Walt.  - E-Ticket  1303.2 #109 7:18AM
Thank you Sir! I won't lie, they are a lot of work. 😊  But I get a lot of joy from making them. My kids love to read them, (Disney history counts as history too right? ☺️). It's Especially fun when I get to hear people's fun stories about their experiences with the things I write about. Helps bring the parks even more to life for me! πŸ’« - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 7:39AM
Duchess_SMK Your hard work is appreciated!! This reminded me that you homeschool, right?? I'm thinking about homeschooling my girlies next year- I love the thought of incorporating Disney! :) Do you have any other fun ways of doing this?? - DsnyPrincessMommy  53.7 #4341 12:10PM
DsnyPrincessMommy aren't you the sweetest!? Thank you! I do indeed homeschool. How exciting for you! Have you decided on a curriculum yet? That took me awhile, but now that we have one that I love it's much easier. :) We usually bring our nature journals to the parks and try to identify as many plants and birds we can find. Other then that, we pretty much just enjoy the parks as a nice break. I'd love to hear what you come up with though! Lots of possibilities! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 9:02PM
Another amazing post, and I even learned some answers to trivilator questions that I keep getting wrong. Great job! I love your history lessons. - DarthTinkerbell  320.2 #724 10:35AM
Thank you so much! Sweet! Honestly I SUCK at trivilator! LOL It's that darn timer, I can't handle the pressure! - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 9:03PM
I would like to thank you for posting such awesome stuff. I'm sort of new at Disneyland and I'm just wanting to learn everything and anything about it 😊 - PrincessOfDisaster  22.6 #6238 8:19AM
Oh I loved this, thank you!!  Always been a fav of mine and for my family as well.  So classic Disney and will always be one of the best.  I will watch the videos with my kids later and I'm sure they'll enjoy them.   - MinnieMousewife  847.9 #189 10:14AM

Good morning! πŸ‘‹ And 😍 I did not get to see DCA until 2006. I didn't visit at all while in college (no extra $ πŸ˜‚), but DLR was my first trip after I had been working for awhile, and also my first trip with my now-husband! Β Wow, sometimes I forget just how much has changed since then--I loved looking at the map! Β I did enjoy the earlier version of DCA very much, and it will always have a special place in my heart. Β It's so fun to have been able to see the park grow and develop (we joke that we, as a couple, kinda grew up with DCA πŸ˜‚--maybe we analyze things too much). Β Does anyone remember the store that sold the Mr. Potatohead parts? Β Loved that, haha πŸ˜‚ However, sentimentality aside, the new DCA is fabulous, and such a great Disney park. πŸ’–πŸ‘ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.8 #320 9:52AM
Loved the Mr. potato head store. We have a box full of disney parts from that store! - BibbidiBobbidiMe  155.8 #2531 9:03PM
How cute! πŸ’ thanks for sharing that! Yes! I remember the mr potatoe head store! We still have the set we got from there. All the accessories were so cool! πŸ‘‹πŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 4:51AM
Great post! No, we were not there for opening day. Funny, I recently found a map from our visit in 2004. Back then, both parks were put on one large map. Of course Maliboomer is on  on it as well as the Orange Stinger🍊. And then at the opposite end of the park we do have the Superstar Limo, but no ToT.  This DCA map looks and feels so very different from how it is now. I am definitely happier for the changes they have made. Thank you!!    - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5017.2 #18 11:15AM
Thanks love! It really is neat to see old maps huh? I miss the  and the mailboomer  But other then that not much about the old park. It really is fascinating how much it's changed! Thanks as always for answering my questions! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:03AM
Another amazing post Dutchess, so cool learning all of this history.  Loved the videos too!  Thanks! - TinyDancerTay  82.2 #3710 11:24PM
Thank you so much sweetie! Really love hearing you enjoy my posts! When people let me know it keeps me motivated to write more, even with my crazy hectic wonderful life. 😊😘  - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 5:25AM
it's so interesting to see the original concept of DCA.  it's wild to see how things changed.  i never saw the park till last year.  i love it now.  all those old pun names are totally cringe-worthy. - MsTikiMermadam  151.8 #2576 3:44AM

Never rode Superstar Limo but I saw the ride through and it was horrible πŸ˜‚ this is much better. Monsters Inc is my favorite Pixar film and I was hoping that whole area (from near the old arcade to Muppets Theatre) would eventually be Monstropolous but of course... Just wishful thinking - missmimi90  1721.2 #81 2:14PM
I agree with you about superstar limo! LOL What's your favorite part about the attraction missmimi90? And BTW I think Monstropolous would be a FUN addition! ;) - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 2:35PM
Either the Sushi room because I LOVEEE the ginger smell or the door room.  - missmimi90  1721.2 #81 2:37PM

Hi love! So sorry for the late reply! My mom fell and broke her ankle yesterday and is in the hospital waiting for surgery so I've been distracted by that and the kiddos!

Oh no! So sorry about your mom SMK! And Churro-I'm glad this attraction replaced it-but the limo ride was so hilariously cheesy I'm glad I got to ride it!!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - TinkerSchelle  1430.3 #98 10:31AM
I rode SuperStar Limo too when Ca adventure first opened. The only thing I remember are all the cheesy stars that kids probably didn't know who they were.  The ride was the worst idea. I also remember there was like a "backstage" around the area with a trailer and directors chairs for photo op.  - MickeyEyeAdore  27.8 #5632 1:24AM
lol, only lasting 11 months is a sign that it was indeed awful. πŸ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5909.5 #14 10:05AM
At the daily opening of the ride they use to have a screaming contest, I don't remember if it was kids only. I think the power meter was used?  A few guests were picked for the scream off. The winner got a certificate that allowed them Front of Line privileges?  Sorry my memory is so fuzzy but they did do this I swear!  I want to say for a year or two. I love this ride, it's so well done, no "slow" spots. When I first saw MI during the door chasing scene I thought "this would be a great ride".  I was so happy to see this scene in the ride! - PrincessDuckie  795.1 #205 6:22AM
