NARF!!!! That is too funny. I absolutely love it! And I love it more that you thought of me. To go along with the theme of Disney...I saw this and thought it was perfect.


I'm glad you are still enjoying it. I will hopefully get a chance to start on the next chapter soon. Work has been burying me lately and I barely have a chance to catch up on the chapters T-Man posts, let alone post my own.

WhooHoo! I threw T-Man off the computer for a few minutes. Don't know how long I have, so I'll try to make this quick...

Then it has definitely changed. It's very cute. And the food is delicious. Expensive, but delicious. And since it's AYCE, and you have a selective menu, we all had a different dish, took a bite of each others to see what we liked and then re-ordered. Got to say, the lobster Benedict was delicious

I have to admit, it was awesome to see everything and you do sort of get sucked into the nostalgia of it all.

I don't think I could/would be able to sit on it. I don't remember it being roped off to be honest.

Right? I can only imagine what the lines were like there. Of course, I don't think back then it was like it is now either. The rides, the crowds, a lot has changed over the decades.

I do remember watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" (on a black and white TV with rabbit ears antenna) and watching an episode where they were showing what Disneyworld was going to be like. It was either just before it opened or just after. That got me (and my DSis) all excited about going to see it. We finally did about 6 years later, not too long before EPCOT opened up, so there was just the one park.

Back then you could refer to MK as Disneyworld.... and you'd be right!
See, your not that old...

I don't know. I would think by the time the park empties and the cleaning crews come in, I would probably be passed out. I mean, even we know that Tinkerbell doesn't swing in and wave her wand to clean up the park or put up decorations. But it is a nice thought instead of the sweepers. Unless of course you have a dancing clean up crew. that could be entertaining and magical.

Sorry...lack of sleep and brain overload at work...don't mind me.

yes dear.
Speaking of. Better start typing a little faster. I am pretty sure I've been on here longer than my allotted time.

You did that perfectly. I could hear the announcer voice and everything. Like I was listening to an old radio show. Hopefully I won't have to make you wait too long to find out. But then again...

I think the question to ask here is, did Lady H ride California Screamin', period?

Apparently Mr. Pkondz is questioning over on another TR that there is apparently this castle worth $5,000. Apparently I need to set the record straight here. It is actually worth $6,800. I was apparently a tad bit off, so now we know the exact price.

How do we know you ask? Good question. You can buy this castle from the online Disney Store.

Here is the picture I took:


Here's the link to buy it: Small Castle You can see for yourself that I'm apparently telling the truth now.

Since I am making clarifications on the prices of the castles, I need to clarify that I was WAY OFF on the price for the larger castle displayed in the window. I stated earlier I thought it was about $10,000. It is actually $37,500. You can also buy this from the online Disney Store.

Once again, here's the pictures I took:




Here is the link for the Disney Store: Large Castle

There's only 50 of these available, so you better buy yours now while you can.

Apparently, Black Sunday's attendance was about 28,000. Compared to today's capacity of 85,000 or so, I wonder how bad the lines were.

No fastpasses of course. No crowd dynamics studies, blah, blah, blah.

Nope. Not so much a question as a lack of trust with the memory banks.

I'm beginning to wonder if I should call off the wedding.

Yeah. What's up with that? Don't they know we're waiting to hear the end about their last day at Disneyland.

We'll get to it eventually. Another part of the reason that it's quiet around here is because a majority of the people that follow us here, also follow a more popular TR writer. So everybody converses over there instead of here. Even if he hasn't posted a chapter for months now, I think it's natural that everybody naturally flocks to that thread.

That's ok though. It's lonely in the desert. We're used to it by now. The burden of trying to keep this almost dead in the dry desert heat thread is almost over. Soon the buzzards will feast on our carcasses and this thread will be nothing more but dust in the wind.

No buzzards will be feasting. Just write the next chapter already. Please.

You asked about memories of the park when it opened - I don't but DH grew up spending his Summers down there, and his uncle was born the year Disney opened so they remember the "early days" with the ticket books. He said it was a big deal if Grandpa would give them a dollar so they could get extra rides! I guess the old fashioned FP uber users!
