Here's the Hopefully soon to be Yesterland of DCA:
With the rotating rocket burgers:
Just HOW MANY signs does this store REALLY need:
This is almost as Creepy as the Burger King King, Only this guy is 3 times as big!
and the ugliness continues:
And nothing says "class" like this:
Yes, this is just a small glimpse of "charm" that Eisner and Paul Pressler gifted upon us.
And of course there are several things not photographed, such as the Souvenier 66 store, Loud Bangs Pin Cart, and a few "small" details like that orange peel, and a dinosaur wearing sunglasses, an undisguised ferris wheel, and an undisguised roller coaster.
Enough of that for now. Here's a picture of a cute display in one of DCA's entry stores:
Now, back to Disneyland:
Should be pretty easy to dermined where these murals are at:
Merlin also said "Hi!"
Now a short trip to Toontown:
Minnie's House looks especially nice during the Spring:
and Jessica looks especially good, regardless of the seasons:
And Goofy was especially Goofy, posing in practically any way he could
contort his body, and sitting practically anywhere he could climb
And another pleasant surprise inside the Gag Factory, the hand held items near the ceiling were in motion! This was the FIRST time I have seen them move in YEARS!!!!! It is such a fun effect when it is in motion! Thanks, Disney, for getting this in working condition!
And from the Golden Horseshoe Revue:
and from a little further away:
One little surprise, in both the Disneyanna Shop on Main Street (pictured here), and in Off the Page at DCA. The Display of rolled posters is gone
In it's place is the Prints on Demand screen. Although there is a larger section of prints, with these machines, only one person at a time can use these machines (IF they are working ~ of the 2 machines at the World of Disney Store, only one was working) With the previous display, you could have a least two different people look at REAL SIZE Prints of what they would actually be purchasing.
And these prints on demand certainly are not as handy, or nearly as quick as the previous poster display. Not to mention the price point is rather high for kids. Disney is really missing out on a big segmetn of the market by eliminating the rolled posters!
Way back on my first couple of trips to DL in the 70's, I did purchase
at least a couple of these posters, a Space Mt one, and a Mickey Mouse Club Poster (Both of which i still have)
It's so sad that today's generation of kids won't have something in that price range of posters, to take home as souveniers.
I did watch the Parade of Dreams, and finally got a great picture of Donald,
who somehow always elluded me before:
Sadly all trips to DL come to a conclusion so
Who's the leader of the band
M-I-C (see you real soon)
K-E-Y (Why? because we like you!)
Then I asked the wonderful Wizard of Disney how to get back home. He said, Just say "there's no place like home, There's no place like home".
Well, that all true, but really, i didn't want to go home, because there's no
Place like Disneyland! There's No Place Like Disneyland!!!
Then things became very confusing! Especially when I saw
"THIS" standing next to the churro Cart!
I became rather alarmed at the thought that the wicked witch of the East was Still ALIVE! (And even more frightened at her choice of footwear, when she had such stylish slippers before!) So, to save myself from any danger, I quickly rolled the Churro cart over the witch, and got the heck out of Disneyland!
One last look at the castle
