Let's collect trains! Disneyland fans know that Walt Disney's love for trains was one of the things that inspired him to build Disneyland. Walt built the Carolwood Pacific Railroad in the backyard of his Holmby Hills home that he purchase  More...
I'm sure most you know this.... But that HUGE beast of a home was NOT Walt's home.  His original home was a lot more humble.  They saved only a tunnel and a couple bushes, that's it.  "We" at the Carolwood Pacific Historical SS saved the backyard Barn and with the generous help of Sharon Disney-Miller and the Broggie family (Michael and Sharon), the Barn was moved to 'Travel Town' train park at Griffith Park Los Angeles.    If you've never been there, please stop by! It's really cool.   I work with plastics myself and built the cover for Walt's workbench.. And it gave me goosebumps as I was helping protect Walt's handprints (in axel grease) and tools as he had them there.   Great project.   As things are today, I still have a pile of original train track pieces (wood and rails) in a pile in my backyard.    We tried at one time to help the Barn by selling small token pieces of the track, but that only went for a small time.   Oh, strangely enough, that "pile" of track sits in Carlsbad here, far from Anaheim or the Carolwood property.  In the end...  In my opinion... It's a shame what they did with Walt's property, house AND neighbors house just to built that insane Estate.  Then to "suggest" it even carries a resemblance to Walt's smaller home?  Hmmm..  But, that's progress for ya.    By the way, Walt's train setup was a smaller scale, but to really be blown away, look up Ward Kimball's "Grizzly Flats" backyard train.  I remember his neighbors just "loving it" when he did a steam up.  Ha!   I'd been there only once, but quite impressive having a full-scale steam engine.    May they both rest in the Depot called Heaven.   8):-)   - imtigger   18.2 #6540 8-26-14 10:41AM Like(9)  Reply

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:

Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).

FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!

unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!

Have a great week! - BaseballMickey_CM Aug 25, 2014 12:00AM
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month.  - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
New "Music of Nashville" event coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree running on weekends, starting on July 18. To read more info: click here - BaseballMickey_CM Jul 9, 2014 11:04AM
So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA.  - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM


We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes   351.1 #574 7-5-14 5:39PM Like(3)  Reply
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6497 8-26-14 11:53PM
I agree with BaseballMickey_CM.  Saturdays are the lightest days when all other passes are blocked out.  The 4th may be crowded because of the holiday, but I'll take that over a crazy Sunday any day. - potatohead25   533.7 #324 6-30-14 2:55PM Like  Reply
My solo visit last Saurday was the lightest crowd I remember in a long time, especially during the Summer! - grumpypapa  1973.0 #58 6-30-14 4:52PM
I agree @@grumpypapa, last Sat. was as uncrowded as I've seen it in a long while! Besides the AP block outs, it might also be that people were waiting to visit until they were off work/school over July 4th weekend. - debbiev  771.2 #197 6-30-14 10:23PM
