    I remember the day the Yippies invaded Disneyland. It was worldwide news. I miss the slurry seal pavement. It gave the place more of a dreamy look, when the ground didn’t draw attention to itself. I wish I could go back to the old Disneyland. Maybe when virtual reality comes about.

      i agree the slurry made it look cleaner and was easier to sweep on

    Random question, but what is the song you end all(?) your podcasts with?

    • the sweep spot

      The music at the end is from the people mover. I have no idea what the song is called.Thanks for listening!

        Ah, well that would explain it. My first Disneyland trip was the year after the People Mover was gone. lol.
