I watched the mine train video. I know Walt said Disneyland will never be complete but watching these makes me  yearn for yesteryear Disneyland.

Tagged in: Disney History  
I really love and appreciate these posts, thank you so much!  I wish I could have experienced the Mine Train, it looks really neat, and I would have loved the Art of Animation. Funny to think we would need tickets to enjoy these attractions. I'm so used to walking through the gates and just enjoying everything, not having to pick an choose which tickets to use and which to save. Amazing how Small World has endured so long with so few changes. Hoping they never add Frozen or Star Wars to that classic ride lol!! Thanks again!! :) - LiveLaughLoveDisney  298.0 #0 2:52PM
I'm so glad to hear you enjoy them! Means a lot that you took the time to tell me so. Thank you! I agree, it would be so odd to have to have individual tickets for attractions like a carnival. Thank goodness they changed that. Too much planning lol! My kids so love Small world. I bet they would be able to pick out any small change or substitution. I'm with you, that would be tragic to save such a classic attraction! - Duchess_SMK  6500.3 #19 4:00PM

Thank you for a bit of My history! The mine train was one of my favorite rides when visiting the park with my parents, friends and all out of state family that we brought to Disneyland when I was growing up. I enjoy these posts a lot, thank you!! - sunvalgifts  144.9 #2852 7:32PM

Remembering my last flight is easy: November 2005, WDW

I got to fly a plane once as a kid! And with husby repelling 80ft out of Blackhawks in our  days and a grandfather who was an air traffic controller, I really appreciate aircraft in working order!  Thank you and thank you!  - SassafrasDavis  514.7 #430 7:09AM
I still have my G.I. Joe Sky Striker (in the box!) And I always cleaned it and maintain it but lubing up the wings, since they moved. So I totally understand where you're coming from, bro.  - phillip...  1361.8 #135 9:17AM
phillip... Working order. πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ Because what's worth keeping is worth maintaining. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ - SassafrasDavis  514.7 #430 9:24AM
I have so many pictures of that, but not Disney related.  It's my work.  I work for a Helicopter Service/Sales/Flight Company with Pilots, Mechanics and just anything related to Helicopter Aviation.  We Fly, Maintain, Keep Records and Sell everything Helicopter Related.  Right now our Aircraft are leaving on Summer Fire Contracts. This is the busiest time of year for our Helicopters and business, except for when there are fires. - Winnie111286  17498.1 #2 7:17AM
Wow! That's pretty cool! Have you been in a helicopter? I never have - misschurro...  7270.8 #14 7:22AM
They terrify me. I am probably the only person here who hasn't gone up in any of them. I sit in them, but that's it. I went on a Tour once in Hilo, but that was enough for me. I am really afraid of flying and only do it when I have to. - Winnie111286  17498.1 #2 7:44AM
πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆπŸš I bet the sites in Hilo were incredible, I just don't think I could get over being so scared. Maybe I'd need a chill pill πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro...  7270.8 #14 8:11AM

It was breathtaking going over the volcano and seeing the running lava. I had lots of chill pills for that. My son got a Business/Aviation Degree from College and a Pilot's license.  Now he starts training, in August, in Oklahoma at the FAA, to become an Air Traffic Controller.  Happy and sad about that since he can be stationed anywhere in the country, which is sad.  Happy that he is finally getting back into his first love, which is Aviation. - Winnie111286  17498.1 #2 9:35AM
How wonderfully awesome for your son!! Best wishes to him!!  - misschurro...  7270.8 #14 1:52PM

My father in law was plane mechanic in Pacific Islands during WWII My uncle was Green Beret Airborne  My dad was chief -electrical engineering at Douglas Aircraft, then McDonnell Douglas. I can remember being very young out at the runway with other Douglas families for a take off ceremony of first DC-9. I also am moved by Soarin queue -hope they don't change it - dianaaa  26.6 #6521 10:04PM

My two high schoolers and I just finished reading To Kill A Mockingbird. I got the movie from the library and we watched it Friday and loved it..... going to start Fahrenheit 451 this week.

Great question!  I'm a big reader, and I reread pretty much everything I like πŸ˜‚  Don't have an e-reader, so I have tons and tons of books!  Gone with the Wind is my all-time fave book and film.  I reread it each year at Christmas but missed doing that this year.  I always try to read a book before the film comes out.  Had fun going through the Divergent series last year, but was really disappointed in the last book, so I haven't seen that film yet.  I also finished the Mazerunner series recently.  I read the Martian last fall just before the film, and I thought that one was done really well. I read Harry Potter over and over--have probably gone through the series at least 5-6 times.  I also have a fondness for the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella and have gone through those at least 10 times.  As a kid, I loved Little House books, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the Giver.πŸ˜ƒ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  627.2 #337 7:30AM
Bonjour from work, boooo. I read "Silence in the Lambs" in two days because I was seeing the movie that weekend. After watching the first season of "Game of Thrones" I read all the books. I can't remember right now but there was one in which I saw the movie first and then read the book. Which was a good thing because I would have hated the movie if I read the book first. - Lelundrial  711.2 #283 8:58AM

I tripped going up a step over at Jolly Holiday. My flip flop bent and my big toenail didn't look so pretty. I hobbled over and the nurse wrapped up my toe and I was good to go. 

Now this is an awesome day!  We went to First Aid once to get a Band Aid for my daughter, nothing serious.  Nurses are amazing people!  They work super long hours and do things that most of us would cringe at, all to take care of people.  A special acknowledgement to NICU nurses and ER nurses!  My family and I are very grateful to them!   - DisneyHeidi09  170.2 #2455 8:45AM
