    My grandfather printed the posters you see in both tunnels. He did all of them except for the Splash Mountain poster.

    I have an old friend who worked for Disney back before it opened, and his stories are fascinating.

    Equally interesting to me are the logistics of everything that has to happen to make the cogs work over there--just managing the inventory and its movement back and forth (with so little on-site storage) makes D-Day seem trivial by comparision.

    Me too, my grandfather was one of the painters that worked on the submarine ride. Maybe they knew each other.

    You have to understand the past before you can predict the future ..... history answers a lot of the "whys" and "hows"

    Another Disneyland history fanatic checking in. I cannot get enough info, pictures or sounds of Disneyland past to satisfy me.

    My wife just puts up with it, my kids are no longer interested in whatever weird audio or video file i've most recently downloaded, and nobody wants to watch my extinct attraction videos any more nor joins me in lamenting the fact that the Disney channel no longer has Vault Disney programming on any more.

    I have only my virtual friends here to turn to for validation of my mania.

    I love Disneyland history. Any Disney park, I DRAIN the internet of all info on any pasty attractions. I never can get enough. Thus, my late nights.

    I used to stay up late at night with my grandson and watch Vault Disney. Now I wish that I would have taped the shows. I taped a lot of Zorro episodes, but I should have taped the Mickey Mouse Club episodes of Spin and Marty and the Hardy Boys. History is important, but we are also making history now, as we speak.

    Since joining Micechat I have really turned into a Disney Fanatic (more so than before)! Just thought I might start studying the History of Disney, some on the internet, some at the library, and then of course I'm planning on purchasing some books, CD's and DVD's sometime here in the near future. I was born and raised here in Orange County, so Disney has always been part of my life. I think it might be an interesting subject to look into......I've learned so much from these forums that's it's kinda hard not to follow up some more!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    disney history is very important to me. my uncle opened the park and retired after building splash mountain. he met my aunt working at disneyland, my aunt was part of the disneyland choir for about 25 years, my other aunt worked at disneyland 41 years, she was the lead seamstress. they all have pictures of what they have done over the years. there is a picture is specific that i love where all three of them are taking a picture with the abominible snowman from the matterhorn. they also have pictures with the animals from the jungle cruise and they are all part of the disney hall of fame. my uncle has pictures with both walt disney and michael isner. there names are ray parish, josephine parish and adelina ortiz. i hope when i graduate in electrical engineering i can continue the legacy. my aunt adelina was the last to retire back in oct of 2002. i need to work really hard to get a job there in imagineering so that i can continue the tradition in my family. working there would be a dream come true.

    The history of Disneyland is the main thing that sets it apart from all other theme parks, even other Disney theme parks, IMO.

    for me it's like how can you love something if you don't know where it came from the past is important to guide the future.
