#1968 Memorial Day Pirates of the Carribean opened March 1967. So one year later. Comparing this photo (credit my friend Paul MacFarland). I see no underground Queue. They added two matching lampposts. Anyone say there wasn't crowded d More...
I remember having to snake back and forth in line on the left hand side of the building before entering the doors. I noticed on my last visit the area is still there but they didnt have it open...Im assuming because crowds were semi light. - kimdis 34.4 #5118 2-27-15 10:13AMLikeReply
I have this picture at home, i bought it in the gallery that is now the dream suite. It is one of my favorite renderings of the castle. It is even more special to me after reading all about Herb! I can't wait to see the tarp tomorrow! Thanks😘✨ - TinkerSchelle 1420.1 #100 2-12-15 4:08PMLike(2)Reply
Good morning! 👋 And 😍 I did not get to see DCA until 2006. I didn't visit at all while in college (no extra $ 😂), but DLR was my first trip after I had been working for awhile, and also my first trip with my now-husband! Wow, sometimes I forget just how much has changed since then--I loved looking at the map! I did enjoy the earlier version of DCA very much, and it will always have a special place in my heart. It's so fun to have been able to see the park grow and develop (we joke that we, as a couple, kinda grew up with DCA 😂--maybe we analyze things too much). Does anyone remember the store that sold the Mr. Potatohead parts? Loved that, haha 😂 However, sentimentality aside, the new DCA is fabulous, and such a great Disney park. 💖👍 - Spoonful_O_Sugar 569.4 #318 2-8-15 9:52AMLike(2)Reply
Great post! No, we were not there for opening day. Funny, I recently found a map from our visit in 2004. Back then, both parks were put on one large map. Of course Maliboomer is on on it as well as the Orange Stinger🍊. And then at the opposite end of the park we do have the Superstar Limo, but no ToT. This DCA map looks and feels so very different from how it is now. I am definitely happier for the changes they have made. Thank you!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 4982.5 #18 2-8-15 11:15AMLike(2)Reply
Another amazing post Dutchess, so cool learning all of this history. Loved the videos too! Thanks! - TinyDancerTay 77.4 #3786 2-8-15 11:24PMLikeReply
it's so interesting to see the original concept of DCA. it's wild to see how things changed. i never saw the park till last year. i love it now. all those old pun names are totally cringe-worthy. - MsTikiMermadam 116.9 #3150 2-10-15 3:44AMLikeReply
Never rode Superstar Limo but I saw the ride through and it was horrible 😂 this is much better. Monsters Inc is my favorite Pixar film and I was hoping that whole area (from near the old arcade to Muppets Theatre) would eventually be Monstropolous but of course... Just wishful thinking - missmimi90 1669.2 #84 1-23-15 2:14PMLike(1)Reply
I have only seen that scary vid of the former attraction. Crazy that it sat empty for 4 years! Wow! I enjoy this attraction. I think they did a great job with it and nice that they brought Disney/Pixar to DCA. My fav is def Roz at the end and her comments😂😂😂 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 4982.5 #18 1-23-15 2:43PMLike(1)Reply
Thanks for another great post. I rode Superstar Limo; I think it is the worst ride Disney ever made. The idea didn't sound bad, but the result was, especially the cheesy "stars" who would pop up. Monsters on the other hand is great, including the detail in the pre-ride. Maybe the ugly duckling turned into a swan? - redsoxcarlos 1335.7 #108 1-24-15 1:01AMLikeReply
At the daily opening of the ride they use to have a screaming contest, I don't remember if it was kids only. I think the power meter was used? A few guests were picked for the scream off. The winner got a certificate that allowed them Front of Line privileges? Sorry my memory is so fuzzy but they did do this I swear! I want to say for a year or two. I love this ride, it's so well done, no "slow" spots. When I first saw MI during the door chasing scene I thought "this would be a great ride". I was so happy to see this scene in the ride! - PrincessDuckie 788.8 #206 1-24-15 6:22AMLikeReply
The picture on the left was taken in 1972, I am in the red poncho and my sister is in blue. The picture on the right was taken two days ago! What a difference 42 1/2 years makes! What a blast we are having retaking our old pics! We decide More...
I'm nostalgic for the flower mart on center street...and just across main street you could get a pastel portrait from one of several disney artists (just outside market house) - MickeyLumboCM 816.6 #196 1-14-15 11:01AMLike(2)Reply
The Dominguez family tree and window on Main Street USA. A promise kept! The tree is a Canary Island Date Palm planted in 1896 as a wedding gift. The Dominguez family owned 10 acres that is now the Pirates area.
The eucalyptus trees in the back of jungle are from the original lands too. They said Walt was going to save more trees and came to the site one day and someone cut down more than he wanted. So he went out and got more. when DCA was being built they asked in our local paper for people to donate full grown trees to Disney ( I believe they were paid for them too). - secretagentangel 1348.7 #107 1-13-15 1:22PMLike(3)Reply
I was 10 when this opened. We went a week after the grand opening. I remember waiting in line that trip and the droid the talks in the queue said "Hi Dad" at the exact moment my father stopped walking. It was hilarious to our family. We loved the ride, I like the new one better because of the randomness of each ride. - PixiePirateMaid 312.3 #750 1-9-15 11:18PMLikeReply
I've posted the top pic before. My father took it in September of 1958 but this past weekend, I was finally able to get the same position and show how much it has changed over the past 56 years. It's amazing!
Many prayers and good thoughts being sent your way! 💖 ✨😘 There are lots of great Disney quotes, but as an avid reader and someone who values storytelling, my favorite is "there is more treasure in books than in all the Pirates' loot on Treasure Island!" A runner up is "life is composed of light and shadows and we would be untruthful, insincere and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows." - Spoonful_O_Sugar 569.4 #318 12-5-14 4:15PMLike(2)Reply

Of course by my MW name you can tell my favorite quote is the we keep moving forward one. Prayers to you for a wonderful delivery and a healthy baby. I work as a Tech in a hospital in a birth center.

When I found out I shared a birthday with Mickey & Minnie I was pretty excited to say the least. I was looking through a calendar my Mom had bought to see what day of the week my birthday fell on, you know, what kids do, lol, and low and behold, there it was.. “Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse”! I was beyond excited. I’ve always loved everything Disney and have been lucky enough to celebrate a few birthdays at the parks as an adult, including my 40th (my profile pic), when Disneyland was having a big 80th celebration for the cute couple. It was awesome! And wearing that birthday button on that day, I sure felt special. Thank you Walt and ..Mickey & Minnie! - DisneylandOrBust 365.5 #0 11-18-14 11:39AMLike(2)Reply
Thank you for this Duchess! This is a big deal for me. I don't talk about why I love ariel and the little mermaid too often because I don't like to be all sappy--but this movie was one of the main things my mom and I bonded over. She really influenced and fostered my love of the ocean when I was a child and continued to do so until she passed away in 2001. This movie is more than just a movie to me, as crazy as it sounds-and every time I watch it I am overcome with good feelings and great memories of my mom that will last a lifetime. I only hope to one day pass down my love of the sea and of this movie to my children as it is so so very special to me. THANK YOU 😘😘 - missariel33 1849.1 #74 11-17-14 4:41PMLike(20)Reply
What a great history post! The ads for the Post are great! Love the pan, Spud ciggies- (what a name, you would think they were made from potatoes😜) and I think I liked the Rambler car the best😂. I watched the video- Alyssa Milano is soo young there. Loved watching the interview with Pat Carroll and hearing what influenced her to make Ursula's voice. Interesting at one point Ursula says, "In my day, we had fantastical feasts, when I lived in the palace." I looked that up and apparently Disney played around with Triton and Ursula as siblings, which would make sense, that she was banished from the kingdom she would try to do what she could to get back at him. My favorite part about The Little Mermaid are the scenes with Ursula 💜💚💚, but you probably already know that😂😂. I am looking very forward to going on this attraction again😱😱😍😍😍. Thanks!!!

Such a historic day! I remember hearing that when Fantasia was in theaters, there were only a few that could show it because it the studios built a special audio set up for the film, thus, could only show it in a few theaters at once. Also, did you know that the final product of Toy Story 2 was all done in about 3 weeks of production? If you watch the Pixar Story documentary, they were having a really hard time with a script and any character development while introducing new characters at the same time (Bullseye, Jessie, etc.). After watching it, a lot of people felt like the story still wasn't complete enough and felt like there was something missing, thus, a third film was made. - BaseballMickey_CM 6688.6 #11 11-13-14 10:43AMLikeReply
and my fave scene for the movie is of course the Sorcerer Apprentice! but i love ALL OF THE SEGMENTS! (Wish they do another Fantasia movie this time around, now that we have all the resources Walt Disney needs during his time!) - otilegna 1989.1 #66 11-13-14 8:46PMLikeReply
I love watching the old videos of these. I really wish there was a DVD of all them. And the Mickey Mouse Club farewell song has to be one of the saddest songs ever, in a way that the show is over. - BaseballMickey_CM 6688.6 #11 10-3-14 11:03PMLikeReply
I am so lucky that the original Mickey Mouse Club was, I guess, syndicated and played in the 70s. It was so great to see the show that my parents would have seen when it was new. and I got to see the shows within the show, 'Annette' and 'Spin and Marty'. the songs on MMC were so fun! - MsTikiMermadam 116.9 #3150 11-12-14 2:35AMLikeReply
