Disneyland - Frontierland
Frontierland is a hootin' good time! Lucky for me, Woody was out walking around. I stopped him to take a photo....what a way to start the day! Hey Howdy Hey!
We rode Big Thunder twice until it broke down. We got a fast pass and went back later at night to ride it a third time!
Big Thunder....much better at night!!!
Fantasyland was my favorite part of the park growing up. The music and the rides were magical.
The Mad Hatter from the classic Walt Disney animated feature "Alice in Wonderland", pose at the Mad Tea Party at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. Disneyland guests riding the classic Fantasyland attraction spin across a giant turntable in oversized tea cups.
Inspired by the classic Disney animated movie, "Alice in Wonderland," the Mad Tea Party attraction at Disneyland Park recreates the film's madcap "unbirthday" sequence featuring the Mad Hatter and March Hare's chaotic tea party.
My brother was DETERMINED to make me sick on this ride once it started!
And HE DID! I was so dizzy and nauseous.
Alice in Wonderland was Disneyland’s (and Disney’s!) first two-level ride-through attraction. Due to the spatial constraints of the original Fantasyland, the majority of the attraction actually takes place on the second floor, right above of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride!
This ride is the ONLY version. The original opened June 14, 1958. No other Disney Park has this dark ride.
Disneyland - New Orleans Square
New Orleans Square at Disneyland is beautiful and it spans the Rivers of America into Adventureland.
The exclusive and very private Club 33!
The French Market serves cajun food.
The River Belle Terrace is where my family would have breakfast.
Reliving the romantic days of steamboat travel, guests board the Mark Twain Riverboat in Frontierland. The authentic sternwheeler boat takes them for a scenic trip down the Rivers of America and though the great American West.
Since the opening of Disneyland park on July 17, 1955, guests have been able to capture the nostalgia of the past by immersing themselves on this relaxing voyage around Tom Sawyer Island (now Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island).
The beloved riverboat attraction authentically captures the look, ambiance, refinement and design of a 19th century steamboat. From its multiple decks, guests can take in the beauty of the American frontier, including indigenous rock formations, natural forests, wildlife, and waterfalls. Along the way, they listen to music and narration by iconic American author Mark Twain as he details a time when traveling was as much about new discoveries as it was about transportation.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
