• A Bugs Life Queue!

    What a wonderful way to end the year with Alan Rappa’s killer photo of the entry queue to “It’s a Bugs Life” at DCA. The center station looks like it is floating above the floor. Is it? Tweet

    The hottest rumor today, December 31, 2011 is whats this “One More Disney Day” promotion all about? Some say its tied to a leap year promotion. It could be a 24 hour long party in all the parks on Wednesday, February 29th. Others feel it could be a free day add-on to ticket sales or […]

  • Photo of the Week

    I have never seen the subs this way before! Gregg Cooper has captured the essence of the experience of riding underwater and the fascination all the guests feel. Everyone is riveted to their porthole! I am so proud to have worked at Todd Shipyards who built this fleet (years before I joined them) for Walt […]

  • The Flying Saucers

    This was the ride you RAN TO! As soon as the rope dropped on Main Street every boy worth his salt made a bee-line to the Flying Saucers. This ride opened in 1961 but closed just five years later when Tomorrowland expanded to add the Tomorrowland Stage (like I needed that). I only had two beefs about […]

  • Old Autopia Pix

    Ticket Prices

    Yes, there are many who complain about ticket prices for Disneyland and Walt Disney World. “I remember when you could get into the park for 50 cents.” Yea, and I remember when your mother had a bouffant! Things do change and prices to enter the parks over the last 30 years have raced past the CPI, the […]

  • Disneyland Resort International Language Guidebooks

    Here is my Holiday gift to you… 16 brand new international language guidebooks, eight from Disneyland and eight from DCA! Believe it or not this actually took some time to put together. Since they are a very odd size (9″x 19 11/16″) I had to scan each page from the opposite side (64 scans), then […]
