Wow!!!!! Awesome history on the Sailing Ship Columbia! I've read bits and pieces on this but never in such detail! She's truly a beautiful ship! I've been on this attraction many times. So much to see. It's really surprising! Be sure to go below deck to see lots of details and interesting things! But do not touch the gun on the bow! The CM's are a little testy about it. I've eaten at the Bengal Barbeque. Nice place to stop for a snack! Thank you SMK! What a great Disney history post today! You're so cool!! - MyPark   1298.8 #163 6-4-13 7:37AM Like  Reply
Did you try and touch the gun MyPark?! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜‚ what happened? What's your favorite thing to get from Bengal? - Duchess_SMK  6632.8 #23 6-4-13 8:09AM
Several guests tried before the ship sailed! If CMs were permitted to slap hands, they'd get their hands slapped ๐Ÿ˜‚. I've only had one of the skewers offered at Bengal Barbeque. It was a teriyaki I think. Very tasty. - MyPark  1298.8 #163 6-4-13 8:14AM
The Columbia is ok... It sure does look nice when they hoist that Jolly Roger up durring Fantasmic... oh haha Just kidding... sort of. I do always wish I had one though. Bengal BBQ is a family favorite, for me especially, I usually have Two Safari Skewers because I hardly notice the asparagus all I see is BACON! Now I am hungry and in need of an adventure at sea...Thank you miss. - GrumpyPirateDad   1960.8 #103 6-4-13 7:49AM Like  Reply

I love star tours 2 and found some secrects that cannot be posted on mw but if you ride with me I can share some with you ,hahaha anyways star tours 2 has 2 openings,2 first planet scenes,3 chracter holographic sequences,and 3 final ending scenes. mix and match this makes it a total of 54 versions. What i CAN share with you is disney left the number 1401 with is the shuttle you board on the spaceport is the same one with r2 and c-3po in the main entrance room. our pre captain rex is found in the queue line but is labeled as defective and if you listen to him closely he will spark every few minutes and speak a line from the old star tours. There are two hidde mickeys in the line , one is from the luggage scanner and the second is on the video moniter hallway every now and then r2 appears and tops ,turns and pulls out two arm and turns them into a circle sideways making a hidden mickey from a few seconds. before officially relaunching disney had a contest to ap to ride star tours and even today even after entering every last contest open to ap have not won yet. they estimated about 100,000 ap previews with cm previews too.thank you - pikaplaid   8125.9 #16 6-3-13 10:31AM Like(3)  Reply

We were there June 3rd! We were close by the SW Ceromonies and I took a bunch of pics for MW. Also disneygirl19, my daughter sat next to Carrie Fisher (supposedly) on a bench and took a pic for MW. There was a MW debate if it was her or not. Got some LE pins for once for us and MWer too! Overall a very fun hectic day.

I miss the mine train! While I love BTMRR, I have so many wonderful memories of riding the mine train with my parents. As a kid, my parents and I took road trips every year and the mine train was such a great reminder of some of the amazing sites we had seen. The cave as you enter BTMRR is a tribute to the mine train, with the glowing stalagmites, stalactite (yes, that's how it's spelled!) and springs. The whole area was incredible, with the pack mules and stagecoaches! It, along with IASW and POTC were my mom's favorites....they were entertaining but not roller-coasters! IASW has not been a favorite of mine, although I love it at Christmas. But it was a must every trip with my mom! My fondest recollections involve the later years when my dad and my daughter would nap on it while mom and I sang along with the soundtrack! I vaguely remember the animation building...I preferred rides at that age! - Gia   802.2 #281 5-28-13 11:21AM Like(5)  Reply

Good morning. I liked the Mine Train a lot when I was young. The Geysers smelled at lot better at Disneyland then at Yellowstone. Enjoyed the bears fishing and back scratching on a tree. Like the prairie dogs popping up. The waterfall by the Rivers of America, the tunnels, other animals and birds. I think I liked it all - Tealtownfan   1171.9 #189 5-28-13 7:30AM Like(1)  Reply

Another awesome memory! A few of us who were attending UCI at the time, ditched classes (and right before finals!) to ride Space Mtn. on opening day! No lines back then so we rode it over and over again. We were given free tshirts (I still have mine, just don't know where it is) and bumper stickers commemorating opening day. No music back then, and the queue had windows where those waiting in line could see the "rockets" zooming around. When I was hired as a CM the following year we had a tour of the attraction then rode it with the lights on...which is quite scary! The tracks seem soooo close to each other! The best memories I have are riding it with my dad...seeing him with his hands in the air and laughing made it even better. - Gia   802.2 #281 5-27-13 11:38AM Like(12)  Reply
