I remember the country bears. One time I asked my mom to buy me a rubber pirate knife in a sweet sheath that they sold in NOS. She said no because she probably thought I would become some crazy serial killer with my rubber knife (it did have a skull on the sheath). From there we went to go see The Country Bears. When I sat down, under my seat, lo and behold I found the knife that I was asking for! Take that, mother! Great memories.Β  - phillip..   1356.5 #132 3-24-16 5:44PM Like(3)  Reply

This ride is nothing less than perfection! Although, I will admit I really miss Paul Frees' dialogue when you go through the cove that takes you from the past to the present. I miss it every time..."No fear have ye of evil curses says you, Ayyyyeee....   properly warned ye be says I...   who knows when that evil curse will strike the greedy beholders of this bewitched treasure!"(Old ghost's voice)   "Perhaps he knows too much...   he's seen the cur-sed treasure...   he knows where it be hiding? Now proceed at your own risk...  ye may not survive to pass this way again!"I swear, I hear it in my head every time we sail through that cove and I would love for it to return someday, even just temporarily!☺️ - Nala   380.4 #603 3-18-16 9:24AM Like(5)  Reply

I never walked around DCA until all the boards were up. I wonder why so many didn't take to it until they upgraded but I always thought it just didn't go well with Californians to buy two tickets to two parks at the same resort. I expect the same excitement on here like there was for Carsland for starwarsland. Hope they have a red carpet or something! And AP days! . (We did try to look at the beginnings of Star Wars land last night but it was too dark, lol)!

I rode the skyway and definitely miss it but I feel like there are more pressing things to refurb and bring back ::ahem ALL of tomorrowland lol:: I love the Tiki room!!!! but I do wish it was still a restaurant and I remember before Aladdins oasis too! As for the treehouse I have mixed feelings- Love Tarzan and I like the refresh/redo but I miss classic Disney. And there is not enough homage paid to Walts live action films in my opinion in either park. Swiss family Robinson was the last vestige to his his 100% live action movie Β legacy.Β Thank you Duchess!!! Ps that first pic of Walt is 😍 - missariel33   2115.6 #75 6-23-15 12:13PM Like(5)  Reply

hi @@missariel33! ::giggles:: I guess it wouldn't really fit into Tomorrowland if they brought back all the old attractions though would it? ☺️ But I too loved all of em! Wish there was more room on the property so that could add a "Yesterland" with all the retired attractions of the past! THAT would be amazing! I agree with you, classic Disney will always be my favorite but I understand their need to be fresh and current. 😊 Thank YOU for answering my questions! Aβž• for you too!! So glad you enjoyed the pics! 😘 I just noticed Disneyland Twitter used the same photo on their tweet a little bit ago. πŸ˜‰ - Duchess_SMK  6475.5 #18 6-23-15 12:23PM
Always enjoyed the Sky Ride. I remember one night we took it over the Electric Parade; wish I had pictures. And always enjoy the Tiki Room; didn't know about the restaurant either. Favorite part was always the talking totems. And I remember the Tahitian Terrace. Think I've posted before about being scared of being dragged down to join the hula dancers.  😞 Β Another great post - you continue batting 1.000! - redsoxcarlos   2985.6 #47 6-23-15 7:24PM Like(1)  Reply

I was one of those children that opened Small World.  I have posted that before, but that brought lots of memories back.  I met Walt, shook his hand and he spoke to each of us.  I didn't want to wash my hand, and I won't say how old I was, but very little!  It meant a lot even at that age I guess?  My voice is also on the 45 that we made with the Sherman Brothers in a studio that was sold at the parks.  I believe the 45 says it was recorded by a children's choir, which was us.  We were the International Children's Choir from Long Beach.  I was a soloist when we sang the song and I represented Columbia, and sang in Spanish, which I still remember.  Kind of feels special to be a part of such an iconic part of Disneyland.  Thanks for posting these, as always! - snowwannab   758.9 #256 5-28-15 6:57PM Like(6)  Reply

 Wonderful post. Yes I did ride the mine trains, many times, loved it. By favorite part of a Small World is the Eiffel Tower. There is a doll half way up the tower that represents Mary Blair. The doll is dressed in Blair's typical fashion of the day. - jacdanfan   11751.3 #6 5-28-15 10:42AM Like(1)  Reply

The doll is difficult to see, it is somewhat dark and you have to pass the tower and look back over your shoulder. - jacdanfan  11751.3 #6 5-28-15 12:55PM
