Here's another Throwback Thursday from a family visit in the 90s; I think this was in '95 when we saw Fantasmic. Back in those days, my premium pass let me park on what is now the plaza between parks!

I had passes at that time and loved parking near the entrance and walking in the gate from such a short distance. used to swing dance every Saturday and go back out to the car at band break and eat our packed lunches!  - grapesoda  290.4 #949 9:52AM
Yes, it was so convenient! I could leave my jacket in the car and come back and get it later if needed, instead of lugging it around.  - redsoxcarlos  2205.6 #66 6:16AM
Good morning. Doesn't seem nearly as crowded. Do you miss the good ole days? - jacdanfan  10972.2 #3 6:20AM

Saw in an e-mail from the LA Times that Jungle Cruise is going to be down for several months to "revise docking procedures and add gates". Didn't say when; am guessing maybe after Jingle Cruise? 😞

And looks like DCA will be more crowded!  - AlyssaDisneyland  51.8 #0 7:48AM
Cool , they probably need to increase ticket prices because so much is opened. Since roa  water is being drained it makes sense. The waters of roa  feeds into other areas including jungle cruise and serves as a natural water flow and filter. Although rumors have it that they are trying to dam up near the front so they can at least have the areas around but railroad to splash with water but are concerned with earthquake safety, it would make sense to close jungle cruise because of the water issues.  - pikarich  4990.4 #23 7:45AM
