So much of Disneyland is a hidden gem. Most of them are the feelings and memories hidden in every one of our hearts. But, if I had to pick my favorite "tangible" hidden gems I'd have to say the top ones on my list are:
(in no particular order)
Snow White's Grotto
New Orleans Square
Disneyland at Christmastime(can you say...sensory OVERLOAD!!!!)
The spinning sun in IASW
The telegraph message of Walt's opening day speech
The silly doors and windows and drinking fountains and manhole covers in Toontown
Sacul Egroeg in Star Tours
Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln(makes me cry every time)
The smell of the pastries and baked goods on Main Street
The popcorn "slaves"
The jumping fish
The evil queen in the window(I know I'm saying ones that have been said before...but, I like them too!)
There are too many to say here. A lifetime of memories exists in our hearts and minds. I can only say that the real hidden gem is the spirit of Walt Disney that we see, smell, hear, touch, and feel in every corner of Disneyland!
