I think Dave mentioned this once before where they were thinking of using Court of Angels as a new entrance. Well looks like that is the case. New lift and everything is what a member told me this morning. So I'm thinking that area will get some major construction. - RickChavez2188.2 #30 5-22-13 12:02PMLike Reply

You are extremely talented. Please add me! My son's favorite Villian is Captain Hook (he loves Peter Pan). He stands out from the rest because he's a cod fish. Thank you for doing this great RAK! - goofymom2boys398.2 #336 5-21-13 6:41AMLike Reply
I enjoyed watching this video.....brought back a lot of memories. I love how they showcased some more of the old dancers like Phil and Bill and they talked about Rose and Dubby who were very close family friends and part of the scene in the beginning and then into its revival in the 90s...The big problem was that these videos dont show when it was dead on most Saturday nights as the older folks have been dying off and the younger crowds stopped going. It was not until it was doomed that the crowds started comeback and that was great to see..I know when it comes back that the crowds do as well and management decides to keep it past the summer - Dave 8652.4 #2 5-20-13 11:06PMLike(2) Reply
I watched this the other day. I was asked to be interviewed for the documentary on the final night, but I couldn't go the day they needed me bc of work 😞 It was awesome seeing Dave's and my good friend Alex in it!!!! It was really well done and I loved seeing them talk about Rose and Dubby!!! They were the one couple you looked forward to seeing every week! Their enthusiasm was amazing!!! The one thing i loved the most about going back in the 90s was it was like having a family there every weekend. But like Dave said, in the beginning of 2000, it started to thin out and slowly the older couples passed away. It just wasn't the same. I know I stopped going for quite a while in the early 2000s. Every now and then, I would stop by to see if there was anyone I knew, but usually not. It was nice to see a new scene growing and it coming back to life in the late 2000s. I can't wait for the 15th! I'm really going to try and get back into dancing as much as I can once it returns. I miss it. I hope everyone comes out like on the closing night!! Thanks for posting this link. I was going to but forgot. - caramiapoohAKAface1449.4 #54 5-20-13 11:27PMLike(1) Reply
Swing dancing at CPG has been on my list forever. My husband and I even took dance lessons so we could go dancing but every time we went everyone was so good and knew each other we just sat and watched. We went the last 3 Saturdays and even got enough courage to dance the last night. We will definitely be there on the 15th. I didn't know they gave lessons at 6:30, we will be there for that. Thank you for all the info!!!!! - Boundin425.4 #299 5-21-13 12:26AMLike Reply

Such a small world. I'm at a Starbucks off if I-5, on my way home to Northern California and AvidDisneyThrifter recognised me! We ride pirates together the other night. Drive safe all you MWer's heading home. See you next week?
I can't find my earlier post asking if there are any MW meet ups this evening. Sorry for the double post. Are there any meet ups or folks that would like to get together at DL this evening with me and my mini?
Will any of you be at the parks tonight? I'm going to the swing dancing thingy at DTD. It's free! I've been told they do lessons before they start and again when they break. The band starts at 6:00. I think lessons are before that and at More...

I apologize everyone for not having these at the reunion. If you knew about how many machines and breakdown of said machines I went through in the past 2 weeks, it would explain what a mess we had. even my back up back up machine did not work, so we are now getting new dies for the new machines and I will be sending everyone their personalized buttons as soon as we have the equipment. I will update this as soon as we have it, I hope to have all the orders out within two weeks. We already have all the artwork done. If you have any questions, dm me and I will help with whatever you need. I also can have them with me at the parks, once I have them all done, I will let you know when I will be there too. thanks for being so nice about it , and we have received a lot of new orders, we will do yours as soon as the first batch is out. - secretagentangel670.0 #154 5-21-13 6:55PMLike(3) Reply
One thing on the names, I have a long one, and if yours is longer I might have to make the name a bit smaller to fit unless you tell me to put in two lines. those of you with shorter names no problems there. I have the old one with my user name in two lines and a couple with just my first name too. - secretagentangel670.0 #154 5-10-13 4:28PMLike(1) Reply

Family vacation first week of June to DL and DCA, everyone's a first timer (except for myself) any advice for taking 1 year olds? We have 1 year old twins and can't leave them out, I have no idea what to expect.
Use the baby care center. It will be a life saver. Also use the parent swap. Take your time too. No need to rush the happiest place on earth. - rachelelizabeth146.6 #2338 3-24-13 6:37PMLike(1) Reply

Get the little bubble bottles from a place like Walmart. I get the cheap pack of them for weddings in the craft section. I use these in long lines to keep my kids entertained. Usually other kids inline end up enjoying them too. - leviathan172.7 #1967 3-24-13 8:01PMLike Reply
Bring the grandma backup plan! Lol! When I went with my BFF and her family (including 1 year old twins), grandma brought her kindle and hung out at the grand lobby. We took the kids to Minnie breakfast at plaza, changed them, went on two rides, watched the Christmas parade, then sent them home with grandma and enjoyed the rest of our day. 😂😂😂 - bluefairy627.2 #174 3-24-13 11:18PMLike Reply

The trickiest part of a day at the parks with my grand mini is getting off and on the tram with the stroller. If I'm struggling, someone always pitches in to give a hand. =) Maybe another parent will be at the parks too. Have fun! - FairyGrandmother119.8 #2744 3-24-13 10:57PMLike(1) Reply

Wow!! This goes way back before my time! I was not around for the Astro Jets. I do remember Rocket Jets, although I may have gone on only once or twice. During the time of its operation my visits to the park were infrequent. But I understand that constant breakdowns plagued this attraction so I may not have had the chance back then. I remember it was visually a part of the old Tomorrrowland that many of us miss and remember🚀. Thank you SMK for taking us back again to classic Disneyland! Another wonderful Disney History! - MyPark944.4 #91 3-24-13 8:41AMLike(1) Reply

I remember the Rocket Jets, the elevator was small and cramped! They went fairly high so the view was great. I remember taking my son when he was really small and there was no seat belt, I hung onto to him really tight and he kept taking it straight to the top. Think Dumbo with a turbo ;).

No need to add me but I am always in the MW mistake zone. I think one of the first pictures I posted was us getting ready to drive to the parks. It looked like a FB post, ugh so embarrassed! During my first RAK, I thought "add me" meant add them as a friend. It seems like I'm always reply the same things on everyone's post. I can't help it! Everyone always looks so beautiful, cute, or is funny. I also thought I would get 300 MW points after I did my first Chub33 walk. Dont even know where that idea came from or the #. Last but not least, I think I reported myself a few time too. I always hit the "R" button by accident. I'm such a dork. - pinkmonkeys321.6 #516 3-2-13 7:13PMLike(4) Reply
