    A little bit of this, A little bit of that - Saturday, July 24th

    Hello my fellow Disneylanders. Here are a few updates from July 24th.


    The Disney Gallery

    First of all, they have plenty of the green and white Mad Hatter Tea Party cups. Pleeeeeeeenty. So you still have time. Disneyland likes to sell out daily and restock the next day. So there is hope.


    Here are some



    Some more



    And a looooot more



    I don't know why I did not notice this before but last week I reported on the the Tomorrowland Cast Member piece by Kevin Kidney and it looks the edition size and now shrunk from 500 to 499! It seems someone broke off this guys little arm! He looks so sad. That was the arm he waved with



    Star Tours

    Star Tours was curious tonight. At 11:30pm the queue was still full so people are definitely getting their fix in. Even the extra queue was open but was unused.


    Im so mad cause they are probably getting rid of all Mon Calamari since they're mainly notorious for the battle of Endor. Raawwrrrr!!


    Also tonight was the last night Cast Members could ride the ride from 12-1AM so I had a very surreal moment since I was on the last flight of the night. The moment the doors opened for the next flood of passengers to board, in came cast members from all over the park in there uniforms. It was hilarious. From Main Street attire to Fanatasyland. Only in Disneyland


    Disneyland: From Once Upon A Time To Happily Ever After

    A new book appeared in Disneyanna titled "Disneyland: From Once Upon A Time To Happily Ever After". I definitely recommend it. Its full of side by side comparisons of how locations in the park have changed thru out the years. Every page is a comparison. And several of them have Walt in the photos of past comparisons. It's so cool! Anyways, I love it. Definitely check it out the next time you are perusing Disneyanna






    Pal Box

    Another Disneyanna goodie I picked up was my very own Mickey Mouse Club "Pal Box". Uhh, yeah, just go with it. Anyways, I love it super duperly but I was surprised to see that the bottom of the box has faces of 2 Mousketeers. So every time I put it on my desk, I'm squishing their faces! I hope this thing is durable otherwise the term "I'm gonna wipe that smile off your face" won't be a figure of speech anymore.

    Awesome box top:


    Awesome box bottom:


    Finally, here are few quick snaps as I was exiting the park. You can see how they appear is particular order



















    Say bye Disneyland!

    ... I'll see you tomorrow!

    Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed seeing your pictures.

My belief was that during those days this room was a bit longer and extended into the space where the Star Wars portion of Star Trader is now located. However, seeing this photo is a great example of how cameras can make rooms appear to have greater depth than they really do. The space in this photo appears to show about the same distance that old photos of ATIS showed. So perhaps I'm wrong about my previous idea and this room has always been kept roughly about this size.

    Anyway, I don't mean to hijack... I just love that shot. Thanks again for the great report!

    Looks like the Jeff Kurtti book is a park exclusive.

    Great shots! And yay, lamp shots! I love pictures of Disney lighting fixtures, they always have great theming.

    Dude, that book looks AWESOME! Next time I stop by at Disneyland, I'm definitely picking it up. Before/After things are so interesting and it looks well done.

    Absolutely. There are some old Disneyland construction photos that were used to compare the old to the new that I have never seen before and I have seen a lot. Plus some excellent rare full page photos of Walt. I really enjoy it.

    Someone had asked if they have the ceramic pop corn bag and they do. Lots.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

    This scares me:

    Mommy, please make it stop.

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.

    ^That seriously made me crack up. It's probably their toothless grins that are creepy.

    Well... Mickey has a toothless grin, but Mickey's smile doesn't make me want to run in the opposite direction.

    @orbitalpunk:
    Thanks for the Disney Gallery update! I can't wait to pick up a few tea cups this weekend.


    I do believe in fairies. I do. I do.
