    Photo op at the wall of mad hatter hat store, i have tried to find a photo of the tradition, but no luck. Anyhow, a true measure of time past.

    So , in this research , and to confirm what is now gone, I found a photo of the figaro exit sign, not sure if it is till there since that eatery had a remodel.

    Oh, the tomorrowland train bathroom and NOS bathroom. I think time has forgotten them.
    What's the 'smoking terrace'?

    Matterhorn way, use to be the platform for the boat ride and other attractions, and get this great trivia question....There is no smoking in the park, at all, even in designated locations during the Halloween parties!!!!

    I'm pretty sure the jumping fish are still there. They were the last time I walked by the "mine cave".
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    Yes, the plastic fish still leap out of the old mine pond - always glad to see them still being operational.

    I recently came across an article that I thought would be perfect to add to the list! It's actually a pretty sweet little list of 25 fun facts that you might not have known about both Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom at WDW. It's astoundingly accurate for a list like this which are usually peppered with mistakes and half-truths. They even include a nod to Disco Yeti! How about that for journalism! :P

    You, my friend, are keeping me very busy

    The pod casts are awesome! I have only been able to listen to the first one and a few minutes into the second. (Well, 22 and 23 technically.) Sooo interesting, and so cool to hear the sounds of the park. I miss stuff like that the most... the sounds and the smells. Well.... and Dole Whips.... not gonna lie.. haha. (mmmmmmmmm... 75 days until a Dole Whip. AND In-and-Out Burger!)

    The link above is great! Now, I just need to find a few extra hours in the day because I got my book today... and I am so stoked! Thanks again for being so helpful and for sharing all of what you know.

    Keep posting! I will try to catch up
