Hi! I think the addition of the water feature, underneath, makes it feel grounded and like it belongs and is there to stay. The cement, previously, made it feel too Fair-ish, as though it would be disassembled and taken to the next town. I have not been on it in years bc it just makes me too dizzy. Thanks for the History post!   πŸ˜˜ - misschurro   7731.4 #14 8-16-16 12:11PM Like(2)  Reply

As always, I love your History Posts.  I love the Haunted Mansion, both versions and the one in WDW.  Actually like the WDW better because of the queue.  It is interactive and makes the wait a breeze, if you don't have a FastPass.  Never miss Haunted Mansion.  A must ride every visit.  Thanks. - Winnie111286   21580.8 #3 8-9-16 10:03AM Like  Reply

I hope the next monorail mark 8 has ac in it. One thing about the monorail is wdw still uses the older model from ours but there is a true transportation use throughout. And one change for the monorail here was the firsts one was 3 cars then gradually extended to 4 and now current 5 cars capacity.

I love ToT! πŸ’– Such a fun read and neat to see the opening ceremony with the fireworks and lightening effects!  I just love the feel of Old Hollywood. ✨😍Haven't been on any other versions, but would love to do so. I'm definitely hopeful that the Guardians of the Galaxy change is just a rumor--I honestly don't think there's much truth to that idea since ToT is such a cornerstone for DCA and the Old  Hollywood theme is classic CA, and the ride is beloved and iconic in the park ...  I just feel like it would be like taking the Matterhorn and making it into a Star Wars or Lone Ranger ride...doesn't make any sense to me πŸ˜‚ but I do suppose anything is possible?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar   647.6 #332 5-5-16 8:35AM Like(2)  Reply

Hi! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ. I've always enjoyed that very haunting music, while waiting in queue. It's just works to make it feel creepier. I also like, in this instance, how the palm trees are not manicured and look as if they've been abandoned. What a fabulous opening with Mrs Serling! Great special effects with the fireworks! For years I wanted nothing to do with this attraction, thank goodness Mr. talked us Churros into it- it's now a family favorite. I've never been to any other DL resort. As for the change, I feel like it's a Β s t r e t c h. I love Guardians of the Galaxy, but I just have to wonder how the Imagineers are going to retheme it and make it feel natural??

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.

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   383.0 #628 3-18-16 9:24AM Like(5)  Reply

Hi my sweet friend! I knew you'd think so! I love that we have a sticker together!  So neat!! I can't believe you still haven't done blue bayou! Perhaps we need to have a mommy lunch meet up next trip! It's fun! Thank YOU so much for all you do! Can't wait to see you in April! ((Hugs))  - Duchess_SMK  6587.9 #19 3-18-16 12:11PM

This ride with s my favorite too. As a young kid I only got to go to DL once. My parents bought me one of those 3D viewers with the POTC pictures. I used to look at those pics a lot wishing I could go back and experience it again. As an adult I'm making up for lost time 😜 - Tom  13209.4 #5 3-19-16 10:39AM

A glimpse of the Pope house from Ball Rd. & Cast Place. Relocated due to Star Wars land construction. Oldest building in Disneyland.

Was that one of the houses we saw in the 10th anniversary movie when Walt was pacing out the park? - Taunton   1592.9 #116 2-5-16 7:16PM Like  Reply
It very well may be. The Popes chose this house to live in when they were removing homes in the orange groves where Disneyland was built. It sat behind Big Thunder Ranch.  - breathe_in_the_happiness  993.5 #205 2-5-16 7:47PM

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 know there's room for improvement still and can't wait to see what they do there!! - secretagentangel   7930.1 #12 2-8-16 8:51PM Like  Reply

Thanks for another interesting post. I prefer the Swiss Family treehouse; it was closer to being a true home in the trees. Tarzan is nice, but also more just a way to display movie scenes.  - redsoxcarlos   3994.7 #42 11-19-15 6:13AM Like(1)  Reply
