Matterhorn at Disneyland Park:

Winter is here, and some of you may be hearing the swish-swish of skis sliding down a snow-covered mountain-even if only in your head. At the Disneyland Park,there is a mountain range,it's called the Matterhorn!

Here are some things you might not know about this monument to Alpine adventure:

1...A Disneyland icon since 1959, the Matterhorn was part of the first major expansion to take place at Disneyland Park since the park's debut in 1955. The Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction opened on June 14, 1959, along with the Disneyland Monorail and the Submarine Voyage.

2...The Matterhorn Bobsleds was the first roller coaster in the world to employ a tubular steel track and an electronic dispatch system which enabled more than one car at a time to be on the track.

3...The Disneyland Matterhorn was built to 1/100th scale of the original Matterhorn, or 147 feet versus the 14,700 feet of the original.

4...The Matterhorn has been the highest point in Disneyland Park since 1959. It is the second highest point in the Disneyland Resort, behind the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which stands at 183 feet tall.(California Adventure Park)

5...The attraction was inspired by the live-action Disney adventure film, "Third Man on the Mountain," which starred James MacArthur and Michael Rennie as mountaineers. The movie was filmed in Switzerland, on and around the real Matterhorn.

6...Guests who look quickly while whizzing through the Matterhorn caverns may spot mountaineering supplies and other evidence of the "Wells Expedition." These scenic details are a tribute to the late Frank Wells, who was President and Chief Operating Officer of the Walt Disney Company from 1984 until his death in 1994. Wells was an experienced mountain climber and skier.

7...There is a half court for basketball inside the Matterhorn. For cast members only!

One of the best attractions at the Disneyland Resort...Dr Lee

Side note...I have two daughters, both were cast members, my oldest, Kimberly,now 28,was an attraction hostess on "it's a small world"(trainer),Storybook,guest controll on parades and Matterhorn.

Ghirardelli shop in Disney California Adventure :

Chocolate samples will replace free tortillas when a new Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate shop opens in Disney California Adventure.
The Ghirardelli venue will go where Mission Tortilla Factory previously ran. The chocolate shop is set to open in late spring. The California chocolate shop is designed to be similar to another Ghirardelli location at Florida Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World.
Mission Tortilla Factory closed May 31,2011 after a 10 years in the park's Pacific Wharf area.Guests could get a free,warm,freshly made tortillas after a tour at the attraction.
Ghirardelli, a company that started in 1852 at the historic Ghirardelli Square in San Franscisco, plans to retain the San Francisco feel of the Pacific Wharf area of the park. This new shop will hand out free Ghirardelli Squares chocolate samples, as well as selling products. The fountain will feature popular sundaes topped with fresh hot fudge that is made daily. This park shop is the only Ghirardelli location in Orange Coounty. Another soda fountain and shop runs in San Diego, California while an outlet is in Ontario,California.

Living in the east bay, (San Franscisco is about 12 miles from my house,just get on the "BART" and travel under the water for about 10 minutes),been to Ghirardelli Square, the """chocolate sundaes topped with hot fudge"""...yummy...Dr Lee

History and Heritage:

Just in time to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Walt Disney's birthday on Dec.5, the Disney Gallery on Main Street, U.S.A. has opened a new exhibit showcasing one of Walt's favorite things- trains.

"All Aboard...A Grand Circle Tour of the Trains of Disney," which debuted Nov.12,2011 and runs through June 2012,showcases the artwork and inspiration for Disney railroads, trains and train attractions.

Walt was always fascinated with trains, begining with his early childhood in Marceline, Mo. As a teenager, he worked on a railroad selling fruit, drinks and newspapers, and his fascination grew while working with Studio cast members who were also railroad enthusiasts. This passion culminated in the construction of a 1/8th-scale "live steamer" at his home in Holmby Hills.

Even in his earliest drawings of Disneyland, Walt always surrounded the park with a train. Today, trains continue to be the focal point at Disney parks worldwide.

All Aboard...Dr lee

Trivia...Which two Disney resorts named a steam train after Walt Dismney???

answer...The Walt Disney World Resort and the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort are the only two Disney resorts with steam trains named afteer Walt Disney.

Jake is newest character at Disneyland Resort:

A new pirate showed up at the Disneyland Resort over the weekend, this time at Disney California Adventure.

Jake from the Disney Channel's animated series "Jake and the Neverland Pirates," is on board as the newest walk-around character.

In the show, Jake heads up a three-character band of child-like pirates who look for hidden treasure. The show takes place in Neverland, as featured in the Disney animated film "Peter Pan." Three characters from the film also appear in the show: Captain Hook, Mr. Smee and Tic-Tock the Crocodile; Captain Hook attempts to get treasure at the expense of Jake and his crew.

The cartoon series is part of the Disney Junior line-up of television programming aimed at childern ages 2-7.

As a child, I liked Peter Pan...Dr Lee

Christmas at Disney California Adventure:

Disney California Adventure gets a taste of Christmas as the Christmas Tree reaches for the sky near Ariel's Grotto in the Paradise Pier.
There aren't as many holiday decorations at Disney California Adventure as there are at Disneyland Park, but one of the most significant is the Christmas tree that sits outside Ariel's Grotto. The tree, along with decorations at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta and other areas, are put up at the same time as those placed at the Disneyland Park. Next to the tree,at the base, sits a small town-square-like holiday setting where Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters visit to give guests a chance to take pictures with them.

I like the holidays at the Disneyland Resort...Dr Lee

Cars Land Mountains :

The Cadillac Mountains Range that serves as the backdrop for Cars Land at Disney California Adventure appears to be nearing completion.
Cars Land's Cadillac Mountain Range is nearing completion as the fictional town of Radiator Springs "springs up" in the foreground at Disney California Adventure. The land is based on the Disney/Pixar film "Cars." For the last two years,scaffolding was all you could see, and most of the scaffolding is gone.
In the foreground,the structures that will form part of the town of Radiator Springs are also taking shape. Most buildings will house either restaurants or souvenir shops.
The land, based on the Disney/Pixar film "Cars," will be home to three attractions. One is called "Radiator Springs Racers," visitors will travel into and around Cadillac Mountain Range.
At 12 acres, the land is the largest expansion of the theme park at the Disneyland Resort and is expected to open in 2012.

Summer of 2012 is going to be great...Dr Lee
