# - 500 credits to 1 MWer who shares 1 true fun fact about the Sailing Ship Columbia. Winner selected Tuesday around 6 pm, in time for sticker night. I hope you win!

When constructed in 1958, it was the first three-masted windjammer to have been built in the United States in more than 100 years. Please add me for this awesome RAK! Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ - Catski23  2.1 #0 8:33AM
When eating lunch at the Hungry Bear restaurant and the Columbia sails by and the cannon fires and I'm not expecting it, it makes me ... (fill in the blank)! ๐Ÿ˜‚ great RAK, thank you! Add me for Psychguy. - jacdanfan  8684.2 #5 7:13AM
Please add me. ย  There are replicas of crew quarters, the galley and work areas to see below deck. ย  - YoPirate  494.6 #397 1:36AM
The best thing any cast member has said after firing the cannon was "don't worry, those trees won't bother us again". - TheAlternate  31.6 #5401 3:50AM

#Adventureland - and here's the glorious top of the Canary Islands Palm

The Dominguez family owned the land that Walt bought to build Disneyland. According to the Cultivating the Magic Garden Tour, the conditions on the sale were that the Palm tree and the original family home were to stay intact in the park; the home is now used as business offices for Adventureland. It's an awesome tour to take so much info on the development of the original park and its gardens throughout! - Catski23  2.1 #0 10:10PM

#Plussing - look closely at the brooms. From last night near closing. I love it when cast members surprise me with their desire and ability to put on a show, even in the most unlikely of roles.

Here is another example of Walt's "plussing". Read this in a business blog last year: Perhaps one of the best examples of Waltโ€™s obsession for โ€œplussingโ€ comes from Disney historian Les Perkinsโ€™ account of an incident that took place at Disneyland during the early years of the park. Walt had decided to hold a Christmas parade at the new park at a cost of $350,000. Waltโ€™s accountants approached him and besieged him to not spend money on an extravagant Christmas parade because the people would already be there. Nobody would complain, they reasoned, if they dispensed with the parade because nobody would be expecting it. Waltโ€™s reply to his accountants is classic: โ€œThatโ€™s just the point,โ€ he said.โ€ We should do the parade precisely because no oneโ€™s expecting it. Our goal at Disneyland is to always give the people more than they expect.โ€ - jacdanfan  8684.2 #5 10:45AM
Excellent! - MelodyMouse  4702.8 #21 12:40PM
Very nice. I had to look up 'plussing' and according to the site boingboing.net:  Walt Disney coined the term plussing as a way of making an idea even better. By telling his workers to plus it, even when they think they nailed it, gave Disney that extra edge when it came to quality animation back in the day. Pixar is a staunch believer in plussing their work. And it shows.  - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5267.4 #16 9:15AM
And this pic made me smile ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5267.4 #16 9:16AM
I have often admired the CM street sweepers.  they always have that awesome Disney attitude and are always smiling.  I think honoring them with a sticker would be great!!!!!   @Admin - valj84DisneyAddict  140.3 #2785 10:20AM
