Under The Sea

(click here to see more Disney Blogs)

Yay today is blog hop day and  the topic this week is Under The Sea. I'm guessing that this was picked because of the opening of the new ride at California Adventure. Ariel's Under Sea Adventure. I personally can't wait to go check it out! I still remember the first time I saw The Little Mermaid. It was New Years Day 1990!
I found my fun fact on the Internet and it's a secret about the movie.  Did you know that in the first five minutes of the movie, there is a hidden Goofy, Mickey & Donald. Talk about clever! It's right when Triton flies down over the audience! They are really hard to see so you are going to have to pause or slow down your movie. I found this information from They also provided this picture. The characters are in the fourth picture over.
Don't forget to test your Disney knowledge to the right! I love Disney Trivia don't you?

Magic Moments

Good Afternoon! Today is blog hop day and the topic for this week is Magic Moments. What's not a Magic Moment at Disneyland? OK, there was that one time a bird pooped on me that wasn't so magical!
Our family has had so many magical moments at Disneyland. Little things like my son being an honorary rider on Jumping Jellyfish at California Adventure where they announced his name over the speaker and everyone clapped for him!

To much larger Magical Moments like when we were able to drive the Mark Twain Riverboat! The great thing about the Mark Twain is that your family can experience this as well.
You can read more about how your family can have this moment as well by clicking here or here.

Did you know that Disneyland has more security than the city of Anaheim has Police Officers. Also another fun fact about security at Disneyland is long time security officer Robb Fischle. He was actually one of the children photographed in the famous opening day picture. Check out this fun video from the Orange County Register.

Tickets Anyone

Back in the early days of the park each ride had it's own ticket booths. They aren't used today but were left in the park. If you look you can still find them.

First Roller Coaster

It's Blog Hop Day!
This weeks topic is Disney Firsts. I've decided to share my sons firsts on the roller coasters in the park. We were so excited when our son was tall enough to go on Big Thunder Mountain. We even had to take this picture of him reaching the height requirement. He was only three, he loved it!
Big Thunder Mountain was designed by Disney Imagineer Tony Baxter and was built on the site which use to be Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.  You can still see some of the remains of the mining ride. To the left of Big Thunder Mountain the pond with the fish jumping and then the mining tunnel are still there.
