    Backstage Storage

    Most of that storage is behind toontown, along with extra attraction vehicles, parade floats, and even the railroad cars (I think). The small world holiday dolls look very spooky outside of that ride :devil:

    If you have ever done Magic Music Days, you have seen this storage area.

    They store all their christmas decorations in the christmas storage building for aqll the parks around the world in Walt Disney World, they truck out about around 15 or now with HMH 25 semis full of Disneyland resorts christmas decorations, all unmarked and stuff, except for the real tree that goes on main street, jsut on a flatbed from somewhere! They have a full time staff at the storage place thta makes new ornament, decorates trees, and gets miles of garland ready for the holidays, christmas lights all over, replacing bulbs and storing hundreds of special christmas decorations, only thing they dont store there is holticulture and foods, those are done in park or close to the resort by growers. form Cast Members who i know, and Travel Channel special Christmas At Walt Disney Warld: Behind the Scenes, i think. But thats all true! Behind splash is the parade storage building where they keep the floats, they offer behind the scenes tours every now and then to special people and guest, jsut keep your eyes peeled! The small world holiday dolls look very spooky outside of that ride :devil: They do anyways inside the ride!!

    I know where old parade stuff goes... actually it is a areally cool story...

    My dad had an interview with the Imagineers in glendale (?)... and he was going in there and he saw the old catapiller float (dont remember with parade)... when he was waiting for his interview he was (up on a CAD program) the RRCTS cars being designed... I remember him telling me about it when he got home... the sad part of this story is that my dad got a call back from them only a few weeks later and my mom never told him... so he is just a normal engineer now... But he took me to see where the office is... they are all white building and the only way you can tell they are the imagineers building is that they have little plaques by the doors with the building number and they have a shooting star on top of it... this is over by some old airport in LA... dony really know where exactly...

    I used to explore backstage areas on my breaks. It was awesome. I remember over behine the Fantasyland area, kinda along the train tracks and into frontierland area there were a bunch of old parts and peices just laying around. There were some old cars from different rides and dilapidated animals from JC and such. I am sure that is all cleaned up now with all the contruction that has occurred around the park since then.

    When we did Magic Music Days, my friend had a video camera hidden under his jacket and took video of backstage. I never saw it so I don't know what he caught. But I remember it looking just the same from then to when I worked there 4 years later.

    One thing I noticed backstage when volunteering for Minnie's Moonlit Madness, there were a lot of old ride vehicles just rotting in the sun. Not sure if they were planning to use them later, or what? Another odd thing I saw was several mermaids from the Sub lagoon, no hair, some of them missing tails. The skin on these things was peeling and scaley, like an old barbie doll that had been left outside for way too long! Mind you, this was a few years ago as they were putting the finishing touches on the "Light Tragic" parade.

    Smelly and junky are in the eye of the beholder. Give me a camera and get out of the way! I would have a blast snapping pics of old cars and rusting whatevers.
