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 legacy. Thank you Duchess!!! Ps that first pic of Walt is 😍 - missariel33 2070.0 #66 6-23-15 12:13PMLike(5)Reply
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. 😞 Another great post - you continue batting 1.000! - redsoxcarlos 1767.0 #80 6-23-15 7:24PMLike(1)Reply
I really like the Matterhorn poster. How cool would it be if the ride was actually like that! Remove the wheels, remove the rails. Make it a water flume up and down the mountain with patches of ice inside the mountain! - Did you notice the Omnibus in the overhead photo of Alice? Makes me wonder if the vehicles ever left Main Street? Wonderful post, Teach, great job! Thank you. - jacdanfan 8888.4 #5 6-15-15 9:42AMLikeReply

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 728.9 #238 5-28-15 6:57PMLike(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 8888.4 #5 5-28-15 10:42AMLike(1)Reply
The train stopping for the fireworks sounds really great! I would have loved to see that as described. Great post! QC! - Tom 8987.3 #3 5-28-15 8:07PMLikeReply
Thank you @@Duchess_SMK! I know these take a ton of work and I really missed them whilst you were so busy with the new baby! I always learn something I did not know or remember something that I experienced! I never rode the mine train but wish that and a few other past attractions would come back! - secretagentangel 1676.5 #89 5-28-15 8:56PMLikeReply

Awesome, thanks for this! I do love the WDW more...last year it was my little one's fav and my oldest refused to ride at all. He does the DCA one now, so exited to go to WDW in a few weeks so we can ride together! - MinnieMousewife 884.0 #186 5-5-15 11:25AMLike(1)Reply
Wow! 11 years? Must admit, I prefer looking to riding. But, it is well themed (although poorly dusted). Very interesting reading about the mechanics. Thanks for another great post! - redsoxcarlos 1767.0 #80 5-5-15 9:57PMLike(1)Reply
Awesome info. We love this attractions. Never been on a different version but i'ld like to try them all. When my youngest was finally tall enough to ride we took him cause he loves roller coasters and he cried and cried. We couldn't figure out why he got so upset riding Space Mountain until one day he says "I don't want to go to outer space". He thought we were really launching into space and was terrified he was going to die because there wasn't any oxygen in space. 😂😂 Now that he's 14 and fearless, it's so wonderful to have these memories. - Bassplayerswife 359.0 #598 5-4-15 10:37AMLike(4)Reply
Last night the subject of the "Berm Graveyard" at Haunted Mansion came up during LNC. @MickeyEyeAdore mentioned one of her memories being of it, so here's the history. From Mansion's opening on August 9, 1969 until May 1970 the original f More...

I love this back page of the Disneyland guide ..shows original artwork of the Haunted House as they called it then and Liberty street which never happened .liberty street was supposed to be an extension of Main Street but would end up at More...
So the reason that the water is so low is because when they first filled up the ROA they did not realize that the ground would absorb all of the water so they had to pour concrete just before the park opened to the public. Even after they poured the concrete, they had a hard time keeping water in the River because of absorption by the ground. It took them years to really keep the levels at at a normal level and a system that not only keeps water in there but also replenishes it when it gets low. - Dave 12802.5 #2 4-27-15 11:43AMLike(6)Reply
That's a great view but it looks more like a marsh than ROA. How things have changed in 60 years - K2Dave 61.2 #4206 4-24-15 5:12PMLikeReply
Oh she looks so pretty all dressed up. I like the top awning(not sure if that's the correct word) of the Congo Queen. And is that a CM or guest with the stripe shirt and sandal looking shoes? And the fella in the foreground looks spiffy with a coat and tie. Thanks for sharing 😊 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 5399.0 #16 4-25-15 11:01AMLike(2)Reply

1963... Did they have phones back then? Hey! Why are there wires hanging out of them... Did they need to charge? - disneydork 315.5 #764 4-10-15 12:40PMLikeReply
@msdizmaui I absolutely remember !! Loved using the speaker phone to call my family when I was at the Park with a school group!! I think they had a prototype of a video phone as well ( which sounded soooo futuristic!) - carminaire 690.0 #256 4-10-15 7:04PMLikeReply
Its always fun to see how things have changed over the years. The clothes, the hairstyles, even the strollers. Thanks for sharing this little treasure with us! - DarthTinkerbell 411.8 #498 4-9-15 11:39AMLike(2)Reply
