I loved the skyway. I'm pretty sure it's my cousin's fault it was closed and removed. He would get a little box of rock candy and throw it at people. If he ran out of candy he would try and spit on people. My favorite part of the tiki room is when the ladies drop down and have us sing along. Unless Maynard's there then his intro is my favorite part of the show. I liked the Swiss tree but kids don't know of the movie or the book so it makes since to change it to Tarzan. I think it's a good change and lots of fun. - Bassplayerswife   161.4 #2389 6-24-14 10:20AM Like  Reply

Please add me for your generous RAK. I have so many disney memories but I will share one that relates to IASW. Β  Growing up my family (mom, dad, sister and I) would go to Disneyland every other year. Β We were very close to our grandparents, so my sister and I would always send postcards home and ask to call my grandparents while on vacation. On one of our first visits to Disneyland we were in tomorrowland and saw the huge familyΒ sizeΒ phone booths. My sister and I begged and pleaded to use them to call our grandparents. Β I remember that phone call like it was yesterday. My sister and I were yelling at the same time trying to tell them everything we had seen and done. At the end of the call my grandfather asked if we had ridden IASW yet, it was his favorite ride. Β We had not, so of course that had to be our next stop. Every trip after that we had to call home at least once if not more from those phone booths. And every time my grandfather asked the same question and we always ran off to IASW. Β My grandparents are no longer with me, but every time I walk through tomorrowland I think of those phones and head over to IASW. Β It makes me feel a little closer to my grandparents and brings back wonderful memories. Β Sorry for the long post. Β Thanks. Β  - SBsnowwhite   505.6 #357 10-22-13 10:00AM Like(2)  Reply

Hello, please add me :D my favorite Disneyland ride. Well, and the first ride for me the first time I went to Disneyland, it was 1980somerhing. I only went about 2 times during my childhood. Thankfully I married someone who really enjoys Disneyland. I've been spoiled ever since, at least once a year.

Wow, he sounds like a swell guy. Please add me for AWOC. One time(like 2 weeks ago) we were on Casey Jr with the strawberries at night and it was real windy. One of the branches from a tree broke off onto the tracks from the wind and got stuck in the wheels which made the whole train shut down with no lights or power. It was pretty dark and the CMs came over with flash lights and got the train going again after about 15 minutes. It wasn't a walk off but still pretty exciting.

What a great RAK! My kiddos LOVE small world! They would be ectastic to win these! Please add me. My story, when my littlest first experienced the attraction I so enjoyed watching her eyes light up and bounce up and down on my lap. It was the first Disney song she ever sung and we listen to it often on car rides and around the house while playing. It's so cute when we go to the parks and I ask her where we should go 1st and she shouts "It-see!" (It's a small world) even though she can now say the full name of the attraction at 2, I never correct her because it always reminds me of that fist ride we took together. ::wipes tears:: Thanks again for this great RAK!  - Duchess_SMK   5617.8 #14 10-23-13 9:05AM Like  Reply

Thank you for sharing this RAK! If I may, I would like to add myself for the first person to respond to my post. My first Disney movie was a night out with my older sister to see Jungle Book. Great movie, best big sister ever! - DreadPiratesRogers   805.8 #189 7-17-13 8:43PM Like  Reply
Ooh we love squinkies at our house! I don't remember this, but my mom says I was obsessed with Whinnie the Pooh when I was little. The first movie I remember seeing in the theater was The Little Mermaid. - mickeyboo  66.5 #3905 7-17-13 8:59PM

Again you have stirred some amazing memories! The Tiki room was a must do as a child...my mom loved it; dad not so much - too much sitting! I went through a long period of time where it was a "meh" attraction. Only went if it was hot or I was tired. But lately, especially after going with folks who have never experienced it I am enjoying it much more. As for the Skyway - I miss it! It was a definite must do every visit. My dad and I got stuck on it once, halfway to the Matterhorn from Fantasyland. Someone had fallen against the emergency shut off switch, so we heard. We were up there about 45 min and my mother ( on the ground!) was frantic. But I loved it! Just watching the crowds, the skyline and being with my dad alone in such a magical place was wonderful. We sang Disney songs to pass the time and he occasionally would threaten to swing it. Everytime I walk by the somewhat hidden Fantasyland station, I smile at the memories. - Gia   801.8 #190 6-23-13 1:29PM Like(4)  Reply
My father used to sing, act and whistle professionally. His teacher was Marion Darlington, who is credited as doing many of the bird whistles in the Tiki Room. She also did the bird noises for Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi and many others. She was Alice's crying voice in Alice in Wonderland. I never met her, but my father talked about her a lot. I think she was instrumental in helping my dad get jobs. She accompanied my father and his family to Yosemite, where he sang and whistled during the fire fall they used to do at the Ahwanhnee Hotel. So, the Tiki Room brings back memories of my dad, as she taught him many of the bird calls and whistles from the movies she did. Every time we went in the Tiki Room, we had to hear the story of Marion Darlington. It got old, but now I appreciate the history so much. - snowwannab   674.2 #243 6-23-13 1:57PM Like(2)  Reply
That's fascinating!! I'm lucky to be old enough to have seen the Fire Falls at Yosemite. Such a beautiful sight. - Gia  801.8 #190 6-23-13 2:00PM
Hard to find someone that knows what that was. It really was beautiful. - snowwannab  674.2 #243 6-23-13 2:04PM
I have always had a love for the Tiki Room. Now that I have minis, it's even more magical! - NellTinkerBell   322.8 #686 6-23-13 5:10PM Like  Reply
I loved the skyway, too, especially where it went through the Matterhorn. The Matterhorn was my favorite ride, but it was closed for a few trips in a row, so the next best thing was riding the skyway through it. - coffeesnob   196.4 #1908 6-23-13 5:17PM Like  Reply
