Corridor of Goons pop-up, Sleeping Beauty Castle. These little guys are sadly overlooked mostly, given delay on them that exists and people just rush by the doors - also too bad as how narrow this hallway is, hanging out there less feasible if mom/dad and the kids shoving by if you hang out to watch and wait for the effects, or have to press right up against the doors for photos and no room for other folks to wait so much if they want to see.

The Train that started it all

This has always been one of the most inspirational things Disney did. RIP Lillian’s garden. :)

Named after Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian, The Lilly Belle train car can be found making its way around the Disneyland Railroad on most days of the year (she’s not brought out if it’s raining to preserve the carpeted interior from becoming muddy). The Lilly Belle is the former “Grand Canyon” observation train car from Disneyland’s earliest days.  It was converted to this beautiful Victorian Parlor style VIP car during the 1975-1976 American Bicentennial and re-christened the Lilly Belle in Lillian’s honor.
The car features velvet seats, including a “love seat” for two; images of Walt & Lillian; glass knick knacks; flower arrangements; books; and even one of Lillian’s robes displayed on a hanger.  There are beautiful light fixtures, and there’s even a guest book you can sign!  A cast member stays in the car with you and talks about the train’s history while you circle the park. 
The Lilly Belle IS open to the public. In order to ride, you must head straight to the Main Street Train Station at park opening to ask about getting a seat (it’s pretty popular). If the car is out for the day, you can sign up for a time slot to come back and ride. There is no extra fee and you even get a cool souvenir if you ride: Lilly Belle tickets!

Walt Disney & the four Oscars he won in 1954. He realized that one of them was broken and was attempting to repair it.


I LOVE IT

A special Oscar statuette was awarded to Walt Disney in 1938 by Shirley Temple for ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ that shows an Oscar figure accompanied by seven ‘dwarf’ Oscar figures. 





No Disney feature has ever won a Best Picture Oscar, but the Academy did make a special award to honor the technical achievement of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This was only  the second time the Academy ever modified the Oscar design for a single statuette.

"burning settler’s cabin" at Disneyland. This scene appeared for decades along the banks of the Rivers of America, but was later changed when political correctness came into vogue. The arrows were removed, the (gas fed) flames were turned off, and the (arguably un-Disney-like) corpse disappeared. Today, we’re more enlightened and we all know that pioneer life was easy, that Indi… er… Native Americans were always friendly, and that nobody ever dies.

This tunnel to nowhere acts as another reminder of the Mine Ride Through Nature’s Wonderland that was replaced by Big Thunder Mountain. Near the Big Thunder Ranch, this tunnel sits directly above the now beaver-less Beaver Valley Pond.

Dormant and unused People Mover track, where it crosses through the Star Tours queue bay - taken in 2010. I believe this ‘window’ is now covered over with the improvements to Star Tours 2.0, so no more glimpse of the old trackway.
