"Lost" Lincoln | Meet The World in Progressland

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Unfortunately, I do have to say that I found two things about the new show very disappointing. First of all, Lincoln's speech had been shortened back in the eighties and I was very surprised to see that it had not been restored this time around. This shortening of his speech occurred at the same time that the "Two Brothers" segment had been added to the show. That addition has ALWAYS bothered me. It doesn't fit with the rest of the show.

Space Mountain - 33rd Anniversary!

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Thirty three years ago today, Space Mountain opened at Disneyland. About two months after it opened, my grandparents took my brother and me to the park to check it out. I still remember sitting in the front seat with my grandfather for that very first ride and the excitement of not knowing exactly what to expect.

Meet The World: Glow Fest Review from the Disneyland Resort!

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Okay, now this was weird. I saw some of these props in the Hollywood Backlot last Tuesday during the day and thought perhaps they were being used for Grad Nites. It turns out that they are for GLOW FEST, The Ultimate Summer Street Party! (Ends August 22nd.)

Disneyland Hotel Rainforest

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Today we have a vintage slide from 1973 showing the Disneyland Hotel Shops and Travelport. Just out of view to the right would be the Disneyland Hotel Monorail Station. I have always loved the "Erector Set" style girders and the mid-century modern architecture of the old hotel and truly miss it today.

Meet The World: Greetings from The Art Corner at Disneyland!

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Let me start this post by saying that I don't consider myself a big Disneyland pin collector. I'm being specific here when I say "Disneyland." I actually own more pins from Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris than I do from the original Disney theme park that I grew up with. Maybe it's because I buy more souvenirs in general when I visit other Disney parks, than I do from the park that's right here in my own backyard.

Meet The World: Alice Behind Bars....and the Kalamazoo Handcar!

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

This is a Friday the 13th "mini" trip report from The Happiest Place On Earth. I stopped by the park yesterday after work, and found the Alice In Wonderland exit leaf/track outlined with some very ugly railings. Evidently, this is something that OSHA is making Disney do for the safety of the employees when they have to perform evacuations of the attraction.

Meet The World: More Haunted Mansion!

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Here is the pin that I was purchasing on Disneyland's 55th birthday that led to my discovery of the special limited pins featured in my "Art Corner" post from last month. This pin is a copy of the roadside billboard that advertised the opening of the Haunted Manison back in 1969.

Meet The World: Cowboy Weekend at Disneyland!

http://meettheworldinprogressland.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

I did not go to the park for Cowboy Weekend, but I do remember seeing the Bear Country Hoedown many times throughout the early eighties. I believe this show was done as an attempt to try and draw guests back into that corner of the park in the late evenings.
