Greetings from the Grand Californian! Happy Birthday to
Disneyland as it turned 52 yesterday. Trips at Club 33 were had and there are
pictures. (Your editor will have his own out soon but do enjoy the one's already
posted.) 7-11 turns some stores into Kwik-E Marts, the definition of cool. So
sit back, relax and enjoy this week's Round Up! - hollywood1939
Report] - LDF's Retro Trip Report: July 14, 1995 - My Best Day At Disneyland
Innovative Trip reporter LocalDisneyFan takes us all the
way back to July 14th 1995 to report on his day at Disneyland. The Skyway
was still up, Indy was brand new with a three hour wait, and Disneyland was
a whopping 40 years old. Travel back won't you?
More fun than Posh & Becks...
Hail to the
Princess Aurora! Castle walkthrough to reopen!
Dare we dream? In his most recent article Al Lutz speculated that
the classic walkthrough attraction might get a modern revamping. It was closed
shortly after 9/11 due to 'security concerns' but now
appears to be on track to open to modern park goers. What are your thoughts?
Not at the park on the 17th? How did you celebrate DL's 52nd?
The July Single Riders meet went off without a hitch and Mousercise
invites all who attended to post their pics here
Looking back two years.
Our dear MiceChat pal BarbaraAnn shows us pictures from a trip she
took to the resort from two years ago.
The Positives of California Adventure
DarthDucky asks: With all these negative DCA
comments and ideas for change (even though it does need some) I feel that I
must ask this, what is the thing you like most about DCA. Even the people
who hate it must like something in/about it. Just trying to create a more

Not one to normally offer a trip report, Olympicnut decides
that this trip was special enough to report. Good times, good friends and a

Report] - Talked into another trip to DL...July 14-17
PrincessButtercup writes about being forced to visit
Disneyland: My twins were tired so they slept in on Sunday morning, but
the Hamands picked me up and took me to the park with them. The crowds were
light so we had a nice mellow morning. We started with a ride on the
Matterhorn... Adam was just barely too small to ride. Then we went on a laid
back trip on IASW (small world).
Howdy, MiceChatters! I've got some rumors for you this
week as well as our usual compliment of Imagineering ideas! As always we
want more ideas and some tasty rumors for next week's roundup, so post ‘em if
you got ‘em! - Demigod

14 at Epcot and The Magic Kingdom
Is it possible to have too many pictures of the wonderful place known as
Walt Disney World? We at MiceChat sure as heck don't think so! Which is why
we're thrilled, of course, to have another Trip Report-this time from
Magic or Extra Crowded?
ld2 wants to know if participating in Extra Magic Hours is really worth it,
or if it will simply be more crowded than desired. Read on to find out your answer.
Sabres2006's mother was invited to participate in a focus group concerning
WDW vacations. As a part of the study, participants were asked to bring two
to three pictures of 'what she considers to be her family enjoying the

& others claim '09 & '10 release dates
Even though we are still in the midst of the summer of 2007 movie season,
that's not stopping Disney and other studios from staking out their weekends
for 2009 and 2010. Among those slated for 2009 are Narnia 3, Ice Age 3 and
the next Superman movie. As for 2010, it's looking a lot like 2007 with a
projected release of Spiderman 4, Shrek 4 and the last Harry Potter movie.
At this rate, seeing Gigli 2: J-Lo Strikes Back wouldn't surprise anybody.
& 'HMH' are back beginning 9/21/07
After initial success in 2006, HalloweenTime will be returning to the
Disneyland Resort in 2007. Beginning on September 21st, guests at the resort
will be able to see Candy Corn Acres in Sunshine Plaza of DCA. Mickey's
Halloween Treat will also be returning to the California based park on
Thursday and Friday nights beginning on October 4th. Of course, this also
means the return of Jack Skellington and all your favorite friends from
HalloweenTown. Hopefully Disney will have some new surprises in store for
the Mansion this year.
