    One of those unforgetable DL moments

    You know that hidden walkway that starts behind the french fry shack across from HM, and ends at the top of the Splash Mountain hill by the snack cart? You can see the far end of TSI there. Well, I was there last night and I went to stand at the SM end of the walkway, where I could see the water. As the Mark Twain rounded the end of the island and slid slowly past on the other side (I could see it through the trees), I heard music. There was a guy at the last table behind the fry shack, in the dark, leaning back with his feet on the table, and -- I kid you not -- playing "Oh, Shenandoah!" on a harmonica. I felt like I really was on a lonely bank of the Mississippi, watching a paddle boat go by.

    You never know when those moments are going to occur. How very cool that he brought his harmonica and was actually adding to the atmosphere. Just seeing the Mark Twain's lights through the trees would have done it for me. The harmonica would have put that whole experience over the top.

    I had completely forgotten about that slice of heaven, hidden there. My next trip I am going to stroll on over, and think about your moment! I hope I am half as lucky.
    Thanks for sharing.

    There are a few places on this ol' Earth that can just reach in and touch your heart. Disneyland is one of them. Thanks for sharing this wonderful moment. Thanks, Uncle Walt for making it possible.

    That is a great spot, I found it a few months back, I really like it on weekdays when they are doing work on the Columbia you can get really close to the bow.
