Here are a few great videos about what Disneyland does at Christmas time – this is a very special time of the year at the parks. Bookmark this page because we will add more as we find them. This page is iPhone compatible, however, we have noticed that the videos won’t play inside the MouseWait Android app – but if you go to this page in the regular Android browser it will work – http://mousewait.com/blog
The segment that shows how the Candy Canes are made is at 7:00 on the first video. I believe they make 3 batches a day, 45 each batch, starting on Nov 26 this year, so only around 1000 are made per season. You can see the Disneyland Candy Cane schedule here for 2010.

UPDATED with Dino Darts Secret below: We have tons of great tips for you today about how to increase your score and impress your friends on the Toy Story Midway Mania ride in California Adventure. Also check out our Toy Story store on Amazon.com!
If you are an advanced maniac, you must sit by yourself:
Hamm and Eggs: Hit the gophers on the bottom and combine that with the fox on the hen house. Then, hit the two pigs on the fence to reveal a cat and hit that. It could pop up in the middle or close to the barn. The point value for the cat goes to 500,1000,2000,2000,2000. At the end of this game, your ideal score is 51,200.
Balloon Pop: Hit the 500′s at the bottom and the 1000 lamb in the middle of the screen. To make the balloons respawn, hit one of the green or blue 100 point lambs. Now, for the two rainclouds, clear 4 on each side and leave one remaining. Then take a breath, shoot one and QUICKLY pivot to the other. You only have half a second to hit the other one. If successful, 2000 point balloons will rain! An ideal game score is around 60,100. A good score is 72,100.
Army Men plates: Hit the plates all over the screen. Two 2000 point plates will pop up on both sides of the horizon. Aim at the horizon line for one plate, then when you hit it, quickly pivot to the other side. Once this is done, the mountain will descend and 4 2000 point plates will jump up in succession. Sort of like a wave. After this is done, hit all the plates and the plate that the tank throws at you. You should accumulate at least 80,000.
Ring Toss: Crunch time: Before the game starts, start pulling as fast as you can and make sure you aim at the aliens in the rocket. This will require practice. If an alien pops back up from the ship, it’s over. But, if you hit the secret, the rocket will fly up and will reveal a gigantobot. It will pop up with 100,500,1000 and 2000. Try not to shoot inside the 100 point range. While the mouth is closed, hit the bottom targets on your screen. Planets, rockets, jetpacks and the 5000 point alien. Ideal score should be 115,000. A great score would be 130,000. It is possible to hit 144,000.
Bullseye: It is possible to unlock the secret by yourself. I recommend clearing the middle first, then the bottom gopher, then the two buildings, then the barrel, then the remainders. This will require practice also. Your ideal score should be 52,000. A great score would be 60,000+ In the end, your score should be 300,000+ Side Scrolling: Hit the two 500′s, it will reveal a 2000. repeat as you are scrolling across. Mine carts: Hit all the mine carts. Keep the pivot movement slow and fire rapidly. But make sure your gun stays on the same horizontal axis and don’t move it vertically. Then, the huge target will pop up…rapid fire! After all that mania is over, hopefully you hit 500,000.
Only 4 people have broken this mark and 3 of them can maintain it. Will you join our ranks?

1956 Disneyland Dream Videos NEW!
In July 1956, the five-member Barstow family of Wethersfield, Connecticut, won a free trip to newly-opened Disneyland in Anaheim, California, in a nationwide contest. This 30-minute amateur documentary film tells the fabulous story of their fun-filled, dream-come-true, family travel adventure, filmed on the scene at Walt Disney’s “Magic Kingdom” by Robbins Barstow. In December 2008, “Disneyland Dream” was named to the National Film Registry by the Librarian of Congress.
This is a 9 minute broadcast of the Submarine ride dedication for the 4th anniversary of Disneyland. Complete with the Mermaids!
