Tagged in: Disney History  
From what I remember, wasn't Mr Lincoln already playing at the park and a second show was made for the Illinois pavillion for the '64 World's Fair, making it the only Disneyland attraction from the Worlds Fair to be playing on both coasts at the same time?  - BaseballMickey_CM   5790.5 #13 7-19-14 12:05AM Like(1)  Reply
It was vice versa. It opened here while it was still playing at the worlds fair. The fair lasted until October I believe.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2048.1 #53 7-19-14 5:57AM
^^thank you ma'am! My you were up early! Baby doing okay today @IDVandalSkipperCM ?! - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 7-19-14 7:33AM
Also, wasn't while designing Lincoln's face, that the imagineer turned the mask inside out and realized it seemed like the eyes were following him, which then led to DL being the first to have an attraction (Haunted Mansion) with the faces that follow you as you walk by.  design by accident, I always think that is so cool!! - secretagentangel   1216.6 #100 7-19-14 1:17AM Like(1)  Reply
Yep. The illusion is that your mind can't process the light around the negative concaved shape so it compensates by telling you the item is moving instead of the lighting from which you're viewing. Disney actually owns a patent on this design if I recall. - CM_Shadowgamer  2313.4 #46 7-19-14 4:53AM
Thanks sectetagentangel! I just posted a pic of those guys from HM on Thursday! Thanks for your comment! ^^so cool! Thank you @CM_Shadowgamer ! I appreciate you adding to  that! You were up early too! Or was it really late??? ๐Ÿ˜‚ - Duchess_SMK  5433.4 #14 7-19-14 7:42AM
Historically the opera house  thay now plays the Lincoln attraction was the first building built in disneyland and was used to house lumber and other supplies until it was turned into an attraction,  great moments with Lincoln has been in the park on and off from re time to time more when the 50th was around and replaced with the Walt disney story with Donald and Steve Martin,  then returned back to the Lincoln attraction again, it was funny the technology use for the animation is where so real people though that it was an actor playing on stage.  Yes love the fried chicken and if you didn't know you can buy the chicken and rolls a la cart or for the meal substitute the 3 pieces for 2 breastfeeding pieces, and for splash mnt based on song of the south which due to controversial story line will ever see the day of light someday, maybe , but a lot of the characters here especially in the show boat scene are from the old America sings attraction, plus the hardest hidden mickey is at the top of the main lift before you drop on the right side is 3 small pond holes in the shape of mickey - pikarich   2399.6 #43 7-18-14 11:43PM Like  Reply

@pikarich ...not one, but TWO breastfeeding pieces. That's a good deal, right? - MickeyLumboCM  488.1 #368 7-19-14 3:48PM
Wasn't there also another story with Mr. Lincoln arriving late the World's Fair due to the baseball game? Also, the auctioning pirate in POTC now I think used to be a Lincoln AA too. If you look at the face and beard, it kind of looks like Lincoln.  - BaseballMickey_CM   5790.5 #13 7-19-14 11:38PM Like  Reply

Happy 59th Birthday Disneyland! Great post to remind of how it was. I cannot imagine ONLY 2 boats for the Jungle Cruise- glad they got a few more๐Ÿ˜‚. That pic of the chairs you mentioned, I liked the shades, above. Though at 101ยฐ, there does not look like much shade and back then, pretty sure the guests did not bring their CamelBaks. How frightening in Fantasyland๐Ÿ˜ฑ. That picture of the man trying to get his toddler, I can't place where that is but, goodness, BUSY! ย I think I would have been delighted with walking through the castle and Peter Pan's Flight.

Could you imagine wearing a ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘  in that weather? ๐Ÿ˜– I think that pic with the toddler is outside the main gate, to the right where the stroller rental and kennel is today?

Tagged in: Disney History  
Thank you so much for this post about Space Mountain!! I cried so hard when I watched it. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of the main reason why I absolutely love this attraction. Well hear it goes: My dad, who passed away in 2002, loved astronomy. He loved everything including the stars, planets, space shuttles. We would have never ending conversations about this subject. It was his passion. I continued to be passionate about it. My dad worked with the Space program at Collins radio. When I watched this and saw Niel Armstrong I really became emotional. My dad had met him. What an honor to meet such a great man!! Anyways, I don't have to tell you how much Space Mountain means to me. It is THE BEST ride in the universe!!!! Not only for the thrill, but it connects me to my dad!! I believe he loved Space Mountain as much as I did!! Anyways, I will especially make sure I ride it tonight in his honor!! Thanks again!! - Superspacemountainfan   66.8 #3859 7-15-14 3:45PM Like(5)  Reply

Thanks for sharing. - Gabster1forDodgers  534.0 #320 7-15-14 6:56PM
First let me apologize for my lengthy 2 cents. Ok, so space mnt was closed and completely redone for the two years so it could reopen for Disneyland 50th anniversary, which it did have a soft opening 2 days before. the floor of space mnt was lowered about 20ft more for safety and earthquake safety and the tracks where redone 100 % to the original layout and the trains redone. lost was the glow in the dark trains and slowly some of the windows where closed from the then people mover track and other areas. the ride also got a new soundtrack and a special model was on display inside the opera house which showed the exact layout of space mountain.Did you know that every disneyl park has a space mnt attraction , which our is number 2 built after wdw and different in design and ride vechicles. our space mnt top speed can reach up to 35 mph and there use to be the biggest hidden mickey which is still there in the dark no longer shown but as you came out of the launch tunnel there was a huge 3 rock meteor and a blasted mickey carving on itbut you can only see it if you flash (not from me) of if the lights ever ome on and also as you climb the countdown ramp look on the right side wall and see a hidden donald made out of stars. Turtle crush seen it love it very fun and unpredictable which makes itso much fun and a great ac room indeed - pikarich   2399.6 #43 7-15-14 8:17AM Like(4)  Reply

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.

great post , the longest i waited for this is 60 minutes lol on . the cms do a great job with an average of 40 minutes but 60-90 is ok on busier days.at first i thought fasspass would be great but do a low capacity and 2 vechicles load would make the stand-by line even longer.i have been able to hit over the 300,000 mark with my arm being super soar lol,mr.potatoe head is advance tech too as cameras are able to point out guest to in interact with.the ride had an upgrade when toy story 3 came out replacing the boo-peep pop ballons. throughout the ride are easter eggs that if you trigger correctly will open up higher point targets.the inside of the ride is a tribute to alot of classic board games and others. for japans version when the ride first opened pics where on social medias showing the wait time at 8 and 10 hr long.one fun fact i found in a toy story mania documentary is on the ring toss game it was modified quickly. the original game was programmed to act like real ring toss making it harder to land the rings on the targets, the change was to give the targets a magnetic pull around them making it way easier to land on them. - pikarich   2399.6 #43 6-17-14 9:15AM Like(2)  Reply

This surely is one of my fav rides in DCA. The queue is great with Mr.PotatoHead as the barker. And thank goodness they put those umbrellas up- we used to have to just stand in the sun๐Ÿ”ฅ. I don't recall any of that opening day attraction stuff, as we were there. I just remember being in line near Ariel's Grotto and the line no longer moving. We sat down in our spots and waited. After some time, we were finally told the ride had broken down. Then the  line moved again, and stopped. It was really hot that day on the Pier and finally we decided to call it a day after waiting in line for 3 hours. Lesson learned that day, for sure...

This is one of my favorites! It would be fabulous to have shorter wait times. However, a 60min. isn't too bad because the line is constantly moving. The bad part is the stinky smell from the plants. My favorite part of the ride is Ham's and the army men. There is just something exciting about being able to throw eggs and break plates!

What a fun filled history post! So many wonderful attractions opened and such changes around the Parks! A mere nickel for a bag of Fritos! mmm! I like that! It would be pretty incredible to hear Aunt Jemima singing to me whilst I ate Mark Twain buckwheat pancakes. I wonder what songs were in her line up? The prices at The Silver Banjo, a place I had not heard of, look pretty tempting โ€“ I'll take the spareribs plate and a lemonade๐Ÿ‹ bc I see they do not offer Coke๐Ÿ˜‚. That picture of the Grad kids rubbing their feet is pretty funny and I agree, I'm sure her feet hurt a bit more than his- but gosh the way they are dressed is sooo๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜!! I also like the snuggle Matterhorn picture... Not sure how easy that was to do with a blazer on๐Ÿ˜‚. I really wish that our high school would have offered it, I definitely would have gone to the grad night and wore probably something totally 80s- maybe pastel dress?? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.  I really like the outfit and pillbox hat on the lady standing next to the Club33 door. So classy. I have never been to Club 33- I would love to see the inside for my loveโค๏ธ of history, take in the view on the balcony of NOS and ROA, and perhaps enjoy the food๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š (I will just bet that the salmon was delicious โ€“ you know I love it, too๐Ÿ‘ฏ) When I first heard that DCA was going to be made over, I wasn't quite sure because I was so saddened to see the CALIFORNIA letters come down. We always enjoyed taking photos next to the initials of our little churros. When we finally did go to DCA, for the first time, I had tears rolling down my face because of the beauty and how it just looked like it *belonged*.  I was lucky to eat at the Carthay, a year ago, with some wonderful MWers at the Reunion Weekend in the Snow White room.

Thanks again Duchess for such an awesome post.  Thoserestaurants you mentioned were before my time.  I had never even heard of them, but I love the prices.  Haven't had the pleasure of club 33.  Maybe when I win the lottery.   Lol.  As for grad nites I think they were more special back then.  Dressing up makes it a glorious occasion and having the park open all night just for Grads was awesome.  I don't like The way they do it now.  It takes away all the special glory of an all night celebration just with other grads.  Now, it is set up as just a trip to Disneyland.  Lastly, Carsland is a great addition.  However, my most favorite addition is Buena Vista street.  Love the Trolleys, jazz, and rag time dancers.  Character outfits are also very cute!  Thanks again for the wonderful post and good luck with that little bun in the oven that you think may be a trouble maker.  :). My son is 10 now and he was a trouble maker from the start of conception.  However, I love him with all my heart and he keeps me laughing and on my toes.  Lol. :) - Gabster1forDodgers   534.0 #320 6-15-14 10:10AM Like(1)  Reply

So. Much. Awesomeness in this post!!! I LOVE Alice!! My fave scene is the dancing cards.

Now it just is painful to ride. ๐Ÿ˜ข  The subs! In all their Mermaid glory (wish they had been around in the 80's) I only remember the sea monster in this ride, and it smelling like urine ๐Ÿ˜ž.

SUPER spoiler; there are KEY WORDS in the ride that will predict what scene you will get. To get Vader as your start scene listen to these when the ride start: Star Tours 1401 you are cleared for departure,  C-3po โ€œ 1401 thatโ€™s us we cant take off the captain isnโ€™t on boardโ€ and to get the security droid listen to this โ€œ Star tour 1401 you are cleared for departure initiate auto takeoff sequence, c-3po โ€œwhatโ€ , computer- auto take off initited , c-3po โ€œr2-d2 whats going on here we are not ready for takeoff the captain isnโ€™t on board yet. The verbiage is very similar but has slight changes THATโ€™S how you know. Im not going to reveal anymore but will give you this hint the other changes in words are before r2 makes the jump to lighspeed and regardless of whose hologram you get itโ€™s the verbiage that c-3po says right after that tells you your final scene. and this is before the screen comes down other way is after the screen comes down if you see the millennium falcon then you know you will not get vader. Want to have a greater chance to be the rebel spy? after you sit down try and look forward and still as they need to quickly take a pic this from being selected 5 times already. my fav destination is the death star  - pikarich   2399.6 #43 6-3-14 9:25AM Like(5)  Reply

I am not on here much anymore, but this caught my eye.  I was one of those kids in the choir that opened Small World.  I was pretty little, but do remember most of that day.  I got to shake hands with Walt. He was so kind, and made a point to speak to each one of us. Taking the older kids leads, I decided not to wash my hand for a week. That only lasted a few days with the plastic bag and rubber band!  We also made one of the 45's that was sold in the park, that went gold.  We recorded it in a studio with the Sherman Brothers.  The choir got to lead the Christmas parade for two whole weeks in the evenings, when they debuted the huge Small World dolls. Being backstage during the holidays every night was truly magical!  I believe Walt found the choir, because we were involved with Unicef and the People to People program.  Our signature song was "Let there be Peace on Earth".  I know the song is annoying to many, but if you remember what Walt's vision was, it may make it a little easier to handle. There isn't a time that I don't get a tear when I ride it, or hear the song. I have a rich Disney history in other areas, but this was the highlight.  - snowwannab   667.4 #236 5-28-14 11:07AM Like(19)  Reply

I tried to update the wait time but it didn't work. Mickey and friends parking structure is closed via ball road (at least for now) re routing to Simba lot.
That's interesting. Wouldn't have expected that this early in the day. Wonder if that's a sign of how busy the day will be? - redsoxcarlos   865.3 #169 5-17-14 9:59AM Like  Reply

I still remember all the little changes they've made over the years, it always holds a special memory and I will always watch 100 times in a row if I could. I have so many favorite parts. If you watched it with me, you'd laugh at how many times I would lean over and say "oh this is my favorite part" ๐Ÿ˜‚ thanks duchess! - mini_MINNIE   891.8 #159 5-13-14 9:03AM Like(4)  Reply

๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ So many great memories of Fantasmic!  The first few summers of Fantasmic we took quite a few groups to DL just to see this amazing show. I would camp out starting at like 3 pm lol with my blanket and a book to save space. I don't know why I brought a book I always ended up people watching!  I loved sharing the show with our nieces, nephews (Teen Mickey!) , goddaughters and little friends. Every show I had a twinge of sadness that we would never have kids to share the show with. But I did love watching the show with kids and first timers. It was the best feeling ever. Flash forward a few years when our first miracle came along. I think I watched her watch the show the whole time. Crying of course. So grateful we had a daughter to share the magic with. Flash forward about eight years later when Lil One came along. She is obsessed with Fantasmic just like I am!  We have watched it twice in rain because we could!  Who cares about getting wet. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ any who thanks for the memories Duchess! - PrincessDuckie   712.1 #212 5-13-14 9:14AM Like(3)  Reply

I rode this the first time in July 1977.  I had no idea what the ride was like, since I could not see it from the outside.  Grandpa needed someone to ride with him, so they told me it's like Small World.  So I went.  I about died!  Took a few more years before I rode it again.  Now it's one of my favorites.  And although Grandpa is no longer with us, I have an awesome memory of riding this attraction with him for our first time!  โค๏ธโค๏ธ - AZDisney   598.0 #279 5-4-14 7:56AM Like(3)  Reply

i never got to ride it in my younger days because i only went to dl 2 times from age 0-21, but i habeheard and seen videos of the older rockets that use to glow in the dark.I love space mnt . before the 50 th anniversary of disneyland space mnt had closed for a year a believe and had rebuilt the track and the support where reinforced deeper for more safety. the asteroid at the top of the lift is still therewith a huge hidden mickey crater on it although its dark now they dont shine light on it anymore but a got it on *gasps flash -this was before my mw days and didnt know better. today there is a hidden donald and a hidden mickey projection comet on the dome thats mega hard to find but am always happy to point them out when i ride with other mws. lol ok - pikarich   2399.6 #43 5-4-14 10:34AM Like(1)  Reply
