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. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Now that he's 14 and fearless, it's so wonderful to have these memories.Β  - Bassplayerswife   320.1 #726 5-4-15 10:37AM Like(4)  Reply

I did.  I deleated the app and logged on using my computer.  It was fixed , but as soon as I commented your screen name popped up.  That's why I didn't comment anymore. I am done asking admin to look into it because he officially doesn't give care.  The only thing I can think of was when I got a new laptop and dialed up thingy it some who cancelled out my screen name.  I am not doing anything wrong.

More from October 1955...the Mark Twain in some seriously shallow water 😁
Tagged in: Disney History  
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   12495.4 #2 4-27-15 11:43AM Like(6)  Reply

Alexander Graham BellΒ was awarded the first U.S. patent for the invention of the telephone in 1876. Phones were very efficient by 1963 altough still connected by wire they did not run out of battery charge. They came in a variety of colors. Β The pink one here is significant to the date. Conversations did not need to be covertly screened. Β People patiently took turns and of course Ladies first. And I was probably about to tip my hat to the girl with the white cowgirl hat and ask her kindly if she would like to be first. I imagine Walt and Lilly had used this particular one to converse with Mickey, Mnnie, Donald, Daisey and Goofy. - E-Ticket  1346.5 #109 4-10-15 4:17PM
