Todays Future

Author: Cal Jones
Posted: January 9, 2017

During the rush of getting the Park constructed, "Tomorrowland" was the last land finished. Budget cuts didn't allow all of its attractions to be opened that first day. One of those cuts was to use the "Nautilus" sets from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" as a walk-through. When it closed in 1966, the organ belonging to Captain Nemo was moved to the ballroom of the "Haunted Mansion." For the first four years, "The Land" was mostly open space and used for corporations as a showcase, which Walt didn't particularly care for. "The Land" was supposed to represent what the future would look like

Disneyland And Imagineering Part 10

Author: K
Posted: January 9, 2017

"I know it's here somewhere" I'm not sure if that's exactly what was said upon first sight of where the Rivers of America used to be, but I'm sure it was something similar. Maybe with a little more salt. A lot of the excavation for the layout of the park revolved around removing existing trees and vegetation, digging out what would be the basin for the riverbed that would become the Rivers of America. Being that this was farm land, the soil was rich and in many areas well cultivated. However, one thing that was overlooked was the absorption factor. During the excavation of the riverbed,

Path Opens And Gives A Peek Of Star Wars Land Construction Zone Inside Disneyland

Posted: January 8, 2017

The holiday season means the force of the crowd is upon Disneyland, so officials decided to help that crowd get around the park more easily by making part of the "Star Wars" land construction zone visible to visitors. For a few days this week, officials opened a temporary pathway in Frontierland, along what used to be called the Big Thunder Trail. The trail goes from Frontierland to Fantasyland around the backside of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction. But to many fans of the Star Wars universe, it meant a peek at the construction activity in that area, which is normally

Slow Speed Thrills Disneyland Employee Has Driven The Main Street Fire Engine For 32 Years

Posted: January 7, 2017

Steve Finley is not a firefighter, but every day he gets to drive a fire engine for work, as he has since 1984. How does he do it? As an attractions host at Disneyland where five days a week he drives the Fire Engine up and down Main Street U.S.A. "It's no worse than the freeways. I probably drive faster here then on the freeways," he said. That speed is five miles an hour, and instead of driving around stalled cars, he drives around people walking in the street - honking the engine's unique horn, while riders clang the bell in the back. All the while he smiles and waves

Posted: January 7, 2017

The mine train that used to sit by the edge of the Rivers of America at Disneyland has found a new home. The train's engine and two cars will be restored by the Carolwood Foundation, then put on display at Walt's Barn in Griffith Park, under the terms of an agreement with the Walt Disney Company. Larry Boone, vice president of the foundation made the announcement at the foundation's annual volunteers dinner Sunday. "It's been a long time coming, but we've made a deal we can work with," Boone said. The engine and cars were originally part of the "Mine Train Through Nature's

Castle Heraldry Shoppe Closing At Disneyland

Posted: January 7, 2017

The shop where visitors could look up their family crest or purchase a coat of arms at Disneyland is closing. Disneyland officials confirmed that the Castle Heraldry Shoppe will close Jan. 12. The shop first opened inside a space within the castle in 1994. It moved to its present location in 2008, when the park re-opened the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough. Inside the shop, visitors could look up their family name's history, and see if it had a family crest associated with it. They were also able to order merchandise with the crest printed on it.

Are Disneyland Characters Too Big For Kids

Posted: January 7, 2017

I could see a slight sneer pass across the face of my teenage daughter as we walked past the line-up for a Sheriff Woody meet and greet on Paradise Pier in California Adventure a couple weeks ago. Now, I've been covering theme parks for pretty much her entire life, so she's used to theme park crowds. So I couldn't figure out what bothered her about the queue of little kids and their parents, waiting to meet the "Toy Story" star. "What's the problem?" I asked. "Why would any kid want to meet that Sheriff Woody?" she responded. "He's too big." In all my years visiting Disneyland, it never had occurred to me that the "Toy Story" characters in the park are the wrong size. But she's right. While Mickey Mouse and his friends have been portrayed as human-sized from "Steamboat Willie" on, the toys in "Toy Story" clearly are the size of normal children's toys. Andy held Woody and Buzz in him arms in the movies. They didn't tower over him, as they do the children who come

What Is The Best Time To Visit Disneyland

Posted: December 21, 2016

People often ask: "When is the best time to visit Disneyland?" If by "best" those people mean "not crowded," then any recent visitor to the park would be able to give the correct answer - which is, of course, "a school day, 20 years ago." Forget about trying to find a magical crowd calendar that will tell you the secret days when no one's showing up at Disneyland and you can have the park all to yourself. If that secret crowd calendar ever existed, lots of other people have found it by now, and they would all be there at the park, waiting for you - along with thousands of other

How Disneyland Installs The Holiday Version Of Its A Small World

Posted: December 19, 2016

As the Halloween season was winding down, Disneyland's famous canal boat ride, "It's a Small World," closes and goes through a transformation. Inside the ride, a crew of 24 people is busy at work turning it into a holiday version complete with scenic Christmas trees, festive decorations and lights, lots of lights. On the outside another 11-person crew is working at night, when the park is closed, adding lights to the facade.

Disneyland To Move Security Checkpoints Will Now Include Downtown Disney

Posted: December 19, 2016

Disneyland security checkpoints will soon include the Downtown Disney district in a move that is set to be completed by the end of the year. The change of checkpoints is intended to boost security and increase guest convenience, a Disney spokeswoman said. While no "specific incident" has prompted the change, the park constantly reevaluates is safety procedures and has acted on a "current state of heightened awareness," the spokeswoman said. The plan will see the western security location, currently located between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, move outward. The east side checkpoint is not changing for now. The new metal detectors and bag checks will be located in the area between ESPN Zone and the Rainforest Cafe; ESPN Zone and Earl of Sandwich; and an area located by Sephora and Anna & Elsa's Boutique. In addition, guests entering through the Disney and Friends parking structure will also have to go through the metal detectors and bag checks.

Disneyland Resort Gets Solar Power

Posted: December 19, 2016

You won't be able to see them, but shiny solar panels are on top of Radiator Springs Racers. The panels were installed beginning in August on top of the Disney California Adventure attraction's show building. They're now online, providing some electrical power to the theme park. Matt Gray, the director of park operations at the Disneyland Resort said it was done to help deliver on a commitment of being environmentally friendly adding that it "contributes to our companywide goal of reducing use of electricity." More than 1,400 panels were installed, the first time this has been done at the Disneyland Resort. The sun-powered array covers 40,000 square feet, and provides the equivalent of enough electricity to power 100 homes in the Anaheim area. Resort officials said that adding more solar panels to other buildings are not planned, but that plans could
