What's The DCA?  ???
Disney's California Adventure,  it's a 2nd theme park right next to Disneyland, only a few hundred yards away from Disneyland, and all the rides and attractions are themed around the state of California. it's pretty cool.

Ahh, there it is..  ;D that's so weird because I tried looking for it, but it never showed up. Thanks for your skills in finding it. I may retitle that one in order to keep these separate. I think this one will be the better of the two.

What's your favorite ride(s)?  To be honest, I like all of them. Some of them are not quite as exciting as the others, but I have a lot of fun with them anyway.

Your Least favorite ride(s)? Probably the Winnie the Pooh ride. It isn't the most exciting of all the rides, but I love Winnie the Pooh, so I still ride it, lol

What are your traditions when going to the park? We usually ride the train ride that goes throughout the whole park and you get to see the Grand Canyon. This kinda gets your feet wet before you jump off and explore all the sights. We also have made a tradition of seeing Fantasmick and the fireworks shows (but who hasn't?).

What are your favorite memories? I have so many memories of Disneyland. I remember riding on Matterhorn about 5-6 times in a row because it was the end of the night and it seemed hardly anyone was there, so they let us keep riding. I remember riding "it's a small world" for the first time with my parents. I remember meeting Mickey and Minnie for the first time, watching Lincoln at the Opera House, Captain EO, Star Tours.. all of those made big first impressions on me as a kid - and oh yes, the Electric Main Street Parade.

When was the first time you went to Disneyland? The last? First time, September 1988 and the last time was August 2006.

What ride do you think you've ridden most? Probably, Pirates, It's a Small World, Jungle Cruise, etc.

What are your favorite restaurants/food vendors in the park? Blue Bayou, Bengal BBQ, McDonalds Fry stand, etc.

What are the best souvenirs? I like to keep napkins, and even some wrappers (if they're pretty enough), postcards, artwork, keychains, mugs, shirts, etc.

Questions from Mike:

Why is the ride Splash Mountain nicknamed "Flash Mountain"? Ladies flash their ta-ta's -  ;D

What are your favorite Land's in Disneyland? Adventureland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, New Orleans Square, Main Street USA.

Do you like the older rides or the newer ones?  The older ones are great - but a few of the new ones really standout - such as Hollywood Tower of Terror, California Screamin', etc.

What rides would you ride over and over again if you could?
Riding Big Mountain Thunder is a lot of fun doing more than once.

Have you ever been inside Club 33? I never have.. I'd love to be a special guest one of these days...

How Old is Mickey?

Subject: Re: Ask Me Anything About Disneyland & DCA

Written By: ultraviolet52 on 11/09/07 at 4:40 pm


How Old is Mickey?


I would say, from my own memory, is officially 79 years old (from his 1928 talkie cartoon "Steamboat Willie") but I believe Walt made comics and some silent cartoons with Mickey prior to that, so he probably is technically in his 80s.

I thought that if you cryogized a thing and took it to a certain freezing temperature and then brought it back up slowly, that somehow the molecular structure changes. maybe he'll come back stronger  :o

I am not sure if it comes down to copyright or if it just keeps characters from diverting too much from what they're suppose to be. I think by not saying anything and if not having the chops to sound like the character may help someone who doesn't have that particular talent.

According to thestraightdope.com, these may well be the sad facts:

1) Walt Disney, as near as can be determined, was cremated on December 17, 1966, two days after his death. Admirable work in this regard was done by William Poundstone, author of a ground-breaking volume called Big Secrets. Poundstone heard not only that Walt was on ice, but that the body was stashed below the Pirates of the Caribbean exhibition at Disneyland. Disney was known to have been preoccupied with death, his funeral services were held in secret, and the cause of his demise was never formally announced. Poundstone, however, was able to get a copy of the death certificate, which says Walt died of cancer of the left lung and was cremated at Forest Lawn cemetery. The certificate was signed by an embalmer named Dean Fluss, a real guy who really worked at Forest Lawn. Forest Lawn would not disclose the location of the remains, but after a search Poundstone found the grave site in the cemetery's Court of Freedom section. There is nothing remarkable about it. Conclusion: Walt was fried, not frozen.

Disney lived to see many of his creations come into fruition. The only few things he didn't get to see past the drawing board was Disney World, the Haunted Mansion and I believe Pirates of the Caribbean was being built close to the time he died.



1966?


Yes, he died Dec. 15th 1966.

Walt had 4 other siblings (Herbert, Raymond, Roy & Flora). Roy, had a son also named Roy who has played a vital role in the Disney company, recently ousting Michael Eisner and Ron Miller (in 1984).

Walt Disney had two daughters, Diane and Sharon. Diane is married to Ron Miller.  Sharon passed on in 1993.
