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   13.5 #8516 8-9-15 10:15AM Like(1)  Reply

As for the treehouse I have mixed feelings- Love Tarzan and I like the refresh/redo but I miss classic Disney.

Wish there was more room on the property so that could add a "Yesterland" with all the retired attractions of the past! THAT would be amazing!

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.

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   733.9 #243 5-28-15 6:57PM Like(6)  Reply

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   13202.7 #2 4-27-15 11:43AM Like(6)  Reply

Oh she looks so pretty all dressed up. I like the top awning(not sure if that's the correct word) of the Congo Queen. And is that a CM or guest with the stripe shirt and sandal looking shoes? And the fella in the foreground looks spiffy with a coat and tie. Thanks for sharing 😊 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint   5635.5 #17 4-25-15 11:01AM Like(2)  Reply
Love these pics! K- The guy in the foreground, to the left, has a neat woven hat, like the type you see in Hawaii that they make for you. - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5635.5 #17 4-25-15 11:03AM

1963... Did they have phones back then? Hey! Why are there wires hanging out of them... Did they need to charge? - disneydork   328.7 #705 4-10-15 12:40PM Like  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  1393.1 #110 4-10-15 4:17PM
I know... I was having fun with the cool vintage stuff. I'm a product of the 70's - disneydork  328.7 #705 4-10-15 6:34PM
@msdizmaui I absolutely remember !! Loved using the speaker phone to call my family when I was at the Park with a school group!! I think they had a prototype of a video phone as well ( which sounded soooo futuristic!) - carminaire   731.8 #246 4-10-15 7:04PM Like  Reply
