Good morning! This busy day in Disneyland history, May 28th, 1960: "The Mine Train Through Natures Wonderland" opened in Frontierland & “The Art of Animation” building opened in Tomorrowland. 1966: "It’s A Small World" opened in Fantasyland! Previously know as "  More...

I was one of those children that opened Small World.  I have posted that before, but that brought lots of memories back.  I met Walt, shook his hand and he spoke to each of us.  I didn't want to wash my hand, and I won't say how old I was, but very little!  It meant a lot even at that age I guess?  My voice is also on the 45 that we made with the Sherman Brothers in a studio that was sold at the parks.  I believe the 45 says it was recorded by a children's choir, which was us.  We were the International Children's Choir from Long Beach.  I was a soloist when we sang the song and I represented Columbia, and sang in Spanish, which I still remember.  Kind of feels special to be a part of such an iconic part of Disneyland.  Thanks for posting these, as always! - snowwannab  728.8 #232 6:57PM
I remember you posting that and I'm so happy you brought it up again! Seriously the coolest thing I think I've read on one of my posts! So so amazing! What a cool peace of history! Thanks again!! Loved reading that! πŸ˜πŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 8:38PM

Snowwannab what an incredible experience for you to be a part of! Must be a fantastic memory! :) - Bunnie  466.4 #429 10:12PM
 Wonderful post. Yes I did ride the mine trains, many times, loved it. By favorite part of a Small World is the Eiffel Tower. There is a doll half way up the tower that represents Mary Blair. The doll is dressed in Blair's typical fashion of the day. - jacdanfan  8684.4 #5 10:42AM
Thank you for answering all of my questions! Aβž•πŸ˜˜  I'll have to look for that doll next trip! Thanks for adding that!  - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 11:16AM
The doll is difficult to see, it is somewhat dark and you have to pass the tower and look back over your shoulder. - jacdanfan  8684.4 #5 12:55PM
thank! I'll be looking!  - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 5:21PM
Great to know, I'll be looking for that too, wish it was placed just a tiny bit more prominent tho - Bunnie  466.4 #429 10:14PM
The train stopping for the fireworks sounds really great! I would have loved to see that as described. Great post! QC! - Tom  8807.9 #4 8:07PM
Thanks so much Tom! I wish I could have seen the fireworks from there too! You're very kind to let me know you enjoyed this! Thanks again!  - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 3:22AM
Thank you @@Duchess_SMK! I know these take a ton of work and I really missed them whilst you were so busy with the new baby!  I always learn something I did not know or remember something that I experienced! I never rode  the mine train but wish that and a few other past attractions would come back!  - secretagentangel  1562.8 #95 8:56PM
SAA! Hi! Thank you darlin! I'm still crazy busy. But I do try and still write posts for the opening and closing of most attractions. 😊 I'm with you! I wish everything could have stayed....but oh boy, we'd need a bigger park! 😜 - Duchess_SMK  6005.8 #15 3:24AM

Awesome, thanks for this!  I do love the WDW more...last year it was my little one's fav and my oldest refused to ride at all. He does the DCA one now, so exited to go to WDW in a few weeks so we can ride together!  - MinnieMousewife  871.1 #189 11:25AM
Wow!  11 years?  Must admit, I prefer looking to riding. But, it is well themed (although poorly dusted). Very interesting reading about the mechanics. Thanks for another great post!   - redsoxcarlos  1660.1 #87 9:57PM

Awesome info. We love this attractions. Never been on a different version but i'ld like to try them all. When my youngest was finally tall enough to ride we took him cause he loves roller coasters and he cried and cried. We couldn't figure out why he got so upset riding Space Mountain until one day he says "I don't want to go to outer space". He thought we were really launching into space and was terrified he was going to die because there wasn't any oxygen in space. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Now that he's 14 and fearless, it's so wonderful to have these memories.Β  - Bassplayerswife  344.8 #636 10:37AM

I did.  I deleated the app and logged on using my computer.  It was fixed , but as soon as I commented your screen name popped up.  That's why I didn't comment anymore. I am done asking admin to look into it because he officially doesn't give care.  The only thing I can think of was when I got a new laptop and dialed up thingy it some who cancelled out my screen name.  I am not doing anything wrong. I want this thing figured out too. - Linzee  1047.9 #161 9:43PM
You know this happened like two or three weeks ago when everyone was posting as someone else. Remember?  Maybe there was a glitch still going on with mine. That's why admin can't read or find my emails to him - Linzee  1047.9 #161 9:45PM
