I got SUCH a laugh out of the Shrek movie's takeoff on 'It's a Small World'. The puppets singing that song still just send me rolling.........LOL..........

One of the horses on King Arthur's Carrousel has a gold tooth. I saw it again last month. The debate is why. I saw a TV show which presented "it was Mrs. Disney's favorite" as fact. Other sources claim it signifies other things.

I remember when I was in high school and visited Disneyworld... space goofy kept following me around the park. Creep. I thought it was cute until one of my friends said, 'that could be a girl, ya know!' Oh, and one of the cowboys (the bad one of course) in the Wild West show offered to buy me a drink after the show. And, the dolphins in the Living Seas were a bit too amorous for spectators. My friend's mother yelled out, 'OMG! Look at THAT! I didn't know they HAD one of those!' LOL! Never forgot that trip.

I had two visits to the park in the late 70's. Also visited Disneyworld, which I preferred because of the many things to do in Orlando.

I can't resist: "It's a small, small world after all, it's a small, small world after all, it's a small, small world, a small, small world, it's a small world after all."

Once you hear it, it never goes away!

You know, Small World takes a lot of hits, but I rode it for the first time a month ago. (Every other time I'd ever been to Dizzyland, it had been closed!) It got annoying (duh) but I couldn't help but think of the engineering that must have gone into it fifty years ago, to get the song playing end-to-end without the beat getting totally screwed up.

I was there with my family last weekend. It was playing Christmas carols, and it was actually pretty enjoyable for the first time in 25 years or so (I figure I stopped enjoying around 9 years old). They had the whole ride done up with Christmas decor, too.

Walt Disney was one of the great americans. He was a Mason, and true believer in American values. He was a bit eccentric however.

Thanks for the posting. I have visited this over 65 times, dating my visits from the year it opened. I attended the first Grad Night in 1962! I still love the place.

That violinist, I believe, is Drew Tretick.

Has about four cds now, I thinks..

Must be something wrong with me, I found the music rather soothing...

They do that every Christmas. They dress up all the dolls in native Christmas/Winter clothing. They also drape off the Israeli dolls.

Oh, his music is soothing......night after night after night after night after night after night after night.

I gather that neither you nor I are twenty year-olds. I'm reaching twenty for the third time.

A couple of years ago I was watching either the history channel or A&E and they were doing a special on Walt Disney and thought they stated he believed strongly in the communist party.

Now its possible I heard wrong and it was Eisner they were talking about, but I'm pretty sure it was Disney.

I'm doing a search now and ran into this site (a href= http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=ApMw2NNL.5.agwEFQViCTgFXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTE2YWVlZGxuBGNvbG8DZQRsA1dTMQRwb3MDMgRzZWMDc3IEdnRpZANGNjA4Xzc4/SIG=11v406ne6/EXP=1133202339/**http%3a//conwiki.com/index.php%3ftitle=Disney> Disney - Conwiki

"From Conwiki. "The Happiest Place on Earth" The Disney Empire began with a man and a cartoon rodent: Mortimer Mouse. ... Mortimer Mouse. Walt Disney's wife, Lillian, suggested ... Walt may have only been trying to get his films shown in Nazi Europe, he apparently shared some of the same political views ..."

Pretty funny stuff. Do you really want to quote a site that uses the term "The Illunimani?" I did search for Trilateral Commission and FreeMasons on that page but no hits.

Since 1955, 3562 divorces were initiated in the Disneyland parking lot...

LOL - Until you've been there, this doesn't make sense, but there's something about total exhaustion at the end of a long day, mixed with thinking the other person had written down if the car was in "pluto" or "goofy"...

One of the reasons I like some Mozart piano concertos so much is because I don't listen to them every night.

Keeping that in mind, that violinist is good, but every time I walk by his spot he's playing one of four songs. He's there to sell CD's, not please me.

Re Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse: I think it’s been redone as Tarzan’s treehouse. The music is gone, though.
