OUR LATEST SHOW


Show Number 151 - Tour of Disneyland 1955



  This week we continue our series where we tour Disneyland in the years that end with a 5. We have already done 1985, so this episode we are taking a look at the year 1955. This will exclude opening day activities, because that can be its own episode, and it will be soon. This year was the parks first year of operation, and we see it was also a very different time. Some of the attractions we mention you will be familiar with, and others you will not, but we hope you enjoy our trip back in time to the year 1955. 


I Also want to mention our good friend Kyle who hosts the podcast Tales From the Jungle Crews has a new T shirt line out now, they are very cool, and you can check them out here Merchandise From The Jungle Crews

Disneyland Resort Current Events


Plussing
Breaking News from the official Disney Park Blog!

The fabled Hatbox Ghost will be seen in the Haunted Mansion in May.
 
Also from The Disney Parks Blog is a report of some "plussing" of the Matterhorn Bobsleds and Peter Pan's Flight.

This does involve the Abominable Snowman.
 
In the Peter Pan attraction, the Nursery scene will be "reimagined".



Give the Band a Hand
MiceChat.com notes some changes in Disneyland live entertainment, specifically something that made waves.

Under the headline "Dis-Banding" they report that the iconic Disneyland Band is being recast. "What all this means is that Disneyland will be recasting the Disneyland Band for a bigger and more 'high-energy' version of itself. This will force long-time band members to have to re-audition for their roles, if they so choose."


Also…


It is worth noting that current Disneyland Band members that aren’t selected for the new version of the band won’t be leaving Disneyland. Instead, these musicians will join smaller musical groups in the parks and be in new 'break-out bands.' The current iteration of the Disneyland Band will perform through mid-July. The new version of the band is set to debut July 17."​


Sticking To Ya
The Orange County Register reports that Disneyland is officially saying that selfie sticks are NOT banned, but they need to be stowed like any other personal belonging when experiencing an attraction.


You can listen to show 150 on iTunes or go to Libsyn service here.
