    Fond Disneyland memories

    I just love hearing a good disneyland story told by someone that has experienced Disney magic in a certain way. Whether it is due to a happy cast member putting smiles on childrens faces or perhaps meeting a loved one there, or even getting married there. Has anyone ever had a great Disneyland experience that they would like to share?

    I got whiplash on Splash Mountain once. Had to rent a wheelchair to watch MSEP. Not too bad, had a great seat!

    Re: Fond Disneyland memories

    I remember one time when I was younger, I was in the stretching room of the haunted mansion and it really freaked me out. Then the thunder roared and the room blackened to expose the hanging corpse from the rafters. Anyway, when this happened I screamed so loud that the woman next to me thought it was her husband screaming and she started to look at him as if he were crazy. I thought that was pretty funny. Oh also after I screamed, I heard a few people in the room ask the man if that was him screaming.

    Re: Fond Disneyland memories

    I must admit, riding these rides when you are young and have a big imagination makes them a whole lot more fun. I always thought that an old man, like Ebeneezer Scrooge, use to live in the mansionbut was locked inside one of the rooms with the doors that bulge out when the carrage first takes you down the hallway. Then I always thought a cannon would hit me in the Pirates ride so I ducked as far down in my boat as I possibly could.

    The greatest memory I have is of me and my dad watching the MSEP on Main Street. I was about 11 or 12 years old and it was so great. We held hands and marveled at all the lights. ~tear~

    Re: Fond Disneyland memories

    I have a really bad memory for remember specific events. But out of all the trips we made to Disneyland over the years, usually about once a year, maybe even up to once every 10 months, I always remember the lights being dimmed for the Main Street Electrical parade, and our seat that was always along the West Side of Main Street, sometimes in front of the Crystal Arcade.

    Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls: Disneyland proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination, with thousands of sparkling lights and electrosynthromagnetic musical sounds. THE MAIN STREET ELECTRICAL PARADE.

    Then that upswing of synth... a pause... and everyone starts clapping in unison.

    Even when I see that castrated version of it over in DCA, it reminds me of being a little girl with my family in Disneyland, and I always find myself getting misty...

    Sitting infront of the castle with my friend in the perfect spot watching the new fireworks show. After jumping up and down, screaming and waving my arms, getting Peter Pan to blow me a kiss back during the parade.

    Re: Fond Disneyland memories

    I'll post a story here I shared in the DCA Animation Building thread, that's definitely one of my favorite Disney memories. It happened just this last August, in fact.

    We decided to stop at Off the Page on our way out of DCA, and we headed back to the lobby of the animation building, which is a fantastically cool area. This day, it was even cooler, because hanging out in the lobby were Aurora, Cinderella, Snow White, Aladdin, Hercules, and Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey. There were no handlers as far as I could tell, and less than a dozen guests. They were just chilling there, taking pictures and signing autographs with the few guests. But the best part was when the pictures and music in the lobby switched to Snow White. Mickey grabbed her, and they started waltzing around. I wanted a picture with Mickey, but they were all starting to disperse. So Mickey took my hand and we skipped (literally!) over to a separate area that had a bunch of Mickey memorabillia hanging on the walls, and I got my picture there. It was definitely one of the coolest things I've ever seen or done at Disneyland.

    Or there was the first time I saw Tinker Bell. My junior year speech for Academic Decathlon was all about that. I should dig up the text of that speech and post it here sometime. It did really well in competition.

    Re: Fond Disneyland memories

    My Grandfather used to live like 15 mins from the BigD. Whenever my family would vist my Grand we would cruise to the happest place. My father loved getting off on blowing our (kids) minds. He would take us on Mission to Mars and tell us we were going on a trip to space. Ya we believed him... We would do ATIS so many times in a row as well. Yup, we actually thought we were shrinking as many kids did back then and America sings was so much fun to watch as a kid especially the part where they said "and then there was Rock!!!" and then it was all about the subs Being that my dad died when I was a youngter (9) the BigD is always a fond memory for me to relive, and now with my kids !!! "Yes Kids we are really going to blow up the death Star!!!! The rebels need our help.."
    Dont be frightend, I'm just a friendly Monster....
