God bless he USA. It's amazing that so much time has already passed. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago. Prayers for all the men and women who lost their lives and to the service men and women and animals who did all they could and gave all they had - LindseyanaJones 216.0 #1739 9-11-15 9:51AMLike(5)Reply
#1960#Submarine pre Nemo with Red Monorail. Skate and George Washington. Can you name the other Subs? What has Changed in the photo in 55 years? What is your favorite thing to see. I like the bubbles. Photo credit my dad.
Skate, Seawolf, Nautilus, Skipjack, Triton, I know there are more. They also changed names when they went to "Exploror Submarines". I can remember Nautilus, Seawolf and Triton staying, Explorer, Argonaut, and the other ones. - CM_Shadowgamer 2500.2 #51 9-10-15 1:27AMLike(5)Reply
Great old picture! I remember when the Monorail commentary mentioned this was the eighth largest sub fleet in the world. - redsoxcarlos 2046.4 #71 9-10-15 6:10AMLike(4)Reply
That rock next to the left waterfall looks like a skull. From this view it looks different than when I'm standing near the first waterfall. I always think there should be a wading pool right above the waterfalls. - secretagentangel 2434.9 #53 9-10-15 6:49PMLikeReply
Wow! What a fantastic viewpoint!! Really gives great perspective of how things have changed.Incredible that there was a parking lot just right there. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 5841.1 #18 9-7-15 10:16AMLike(1)Reply
Everything! I loved everything back then...the huge parking lot, the tram ride to the front gate...trying to remember where we parked...and changing into my PJ's before the drive back to West LA (so my parents could carry me to bed and then in the morning I'd wake up and see the shopping bags and balloon...oh the memories!) - msdizmaui 683.1 #273 9-8-15 12:58AMLike(1)Reply
Love that picture. I think the Disneyland Hotel had just one tower back then. And I remember one lone year (1994) where my premium pass got me parking right by the ticket booths. Thanks for sharing! - redsoxcarlos 2046.4 #71 9-8-15 6:11AMLike(1)Reply
Hi again y'all! My MW is acting kinda kooky right now on the ride home. For some reason, I'm not able to read or reply to all your wonderful comments. 😔 Please know I plan to! Just may be later in the day when I'm able to. 😘😘 - Duchess_SMK 6217.8 #17 8-9-15 5:23PMLike(4)Reply
Rollo Rumkin, Cousin Algernon, Ned Nub, Phineas P. Pock .Thank you for sharing this post. I always enjoy your posts. This is my 2nd favorite ride and a must do when my family goes. I usually have to drag my husband and daughter on it at least once and then I go by myself haha. It was my moms favorite ride. When I go to the parks I am always reminded of fond memories with spending time with her there; this ride is probably one of my favorite memories of us :) - Wickednspurs 13.9 #8517 8-9-15 10:15AMLike(1)Reply
I rode the skyway and definitely miss it but I feel like there are more pressing things to refurb and bring back ::ahem ALL of tomorrowland lol:: I love the Tiki room!!!! but I do wish it was still a restaurant and I remember before Aladdins oasis too! As for the treehouse I have mixed feelings- Love Tarzan and I like the refresh/redo but I miss classic Disney. And there is not enough homage paid to Walts live action films in my opinion in either park. Swiss family Robinson was the last vestige to his his 100% live action movie legacy. Thank you Duchess!!! Ps that first pic of Walt is 😍 - missariel33 2115.5 #68 6-23-15 12:13PMLike(5)Reply
Always enjoyed the Sky Ride. I remember one night we took it over the Electric Parade; wish I had pictures. And always enjoy the Tiki Room; didn't know about the restaurant either. Favorite part was always the talking totems. And I remember the Tahitian Terrace. Think I've posted before about being scared of being dragged down to join the hula dancers. 😞 Another great post - you continue batting 1.000! - redsoxcarlos 2046.4 #71 6-23-15 7:24PMLike(1)Reply
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 734.3 #249 5-28-15 6:57PMLike(6)Reply
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 9790.3 #3 5-28-15 10:42AMLike(1)Reply
The train stopping for the fireworks sounds really great! I would have loved to see that as described. Great post! QC! - Tom 9532.8 #4 5-28-15 8:07PMLikeReply
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 2434.9 #53 5-28-15 8:56PMLikeReply

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 895.9 #194 5-5-15 11:25AMLike(1)Reply
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 2046.4 #71 5-5-15 9:57PMLike(1)Reply
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. 😂😂 Now that he's 14 and fearless, it's so wonderful to have these memories. - Bassplayerswife 436.0 #471 5-4-15 10:37AMLike(4)Reply
Last night the subject of the "Berm Graveyard" at Haunted Mansion came up during LNC. @MickeyEyeAdore mentioned one of her memories being of it, so here's the history. From Mansion's opening on August 9, 1969 until May 1970 the original f More...

So the reason that the water is so low is because when they first filled up the ROA they did not realize that the ground would absorb all of the water so they had to pour concrete just before the park opened to the public. Even after they poured the concrete, they had a hard time keeping water in the River because of absorption by the ground. It took them years to really keep the levels at at a normal level and a system that not only keeps water in there but also replenishes it when it gets low. - Dave 13315.2 #2 4-27-15 11:43AMLike(6)Reply
That's a great view but it looks more like a marsh than ROA. How things have changed in 60 years - K2Dave 84.6 #3757 4-24-15 5:12PMLikeReply
