These benches have been at the park for years. These photos were taken in 2009.

Other Parks at DCA

When we noticed all this detail on the Merry-go-round in DCA we had a lot of fun trying to get a few good shots. Some of the parks we had not heard of.

Minnie Memory - January 1977

Here we have two postcards from
two different Disney Parks.
One day apart.

It appears that Tom went to Walt Disney World
and the next day, his sister went to Disneyland.

I found these while going thru their Mother's papers. I was so surprised that they were only a day apart. That must have been a good mail week for their Mother.

Update to Where is this #1

A slightly different angle of the tower

and another from the Thunder Mountain side.

Here it is sitting right in plain sight from the walkway.

This shows the base of the tower, you pass right by it when you're riding
The Thunder Mountain Trains.

The upper portion of the tower is hiding behind a real live pine tree

And one more view right here on Main Street, USA.
You may have to look for it, but it's there.

Where Is This? Answer #5

In our house we enjoy a blog called "There I Fixed It"
So when I saw this bungee cord repair at the "PARK"
I had to take a picture. This is a spring latch that holds the
loading gate closed at the Tomorrowland Train Station

This is a picture of me looking at the repair.

Who knew that Bungee Cords are part of the Future

Where Is This? Answer #4


In this picture if you look close you can see that this is really
a pile of used horseshoes, not a pile of leaves
waiting for the landscape crew to clean up.

Unfortunately I do not have a picture that shows the exact location
of the horseshoes, so you will have to take my word
that they are there or go to the "PARK" yourself.
If you stand by this door of the log cabin
in the "petting zoo" area you should see the pile.

In the above picture, if you could see the area
to the left of the cabin it would be there.

Where Is This? Answer #3

This one should have been easy with the brickwork in the background

but if you weren't sure, now you should know.

And here is another clock nearby.

Where Is This? Answer #2

This picture is a light fixture in the queue line of a Fantasyland ride favorite.

These are from the same queue.

What I like about them is that they are all different yet

they all have the same "Pixie Dust"!

You guessed it, it's Peter Pan's Flight

Where Is This? Answer #1


This is where Tinkerbell stops when she flies from the top of the Matterhorn to start the fireworks at night. This picture was taken from the Tarzan Treehouse. The tree in the red circle is the tree in picture #1. It is artificial and hides the tower where the cables are attached.

Check these out.

Recently on, Life is a Journey blog. Connie walked all around the outside of Disneyland. What a walk that must have been. It was fun to look at her Photo Safari.

Today on another blog, Walking in LA, has some more "outside of the berm" photos. Usually Walking in LA is not Disney related, this blogger takes long walks all over the LA area. Sometimes as long as 18 miles. Today he happened to be walking in the Anaheim area and walked 3 sides of DCA.

These two blogs are a lot of fun, we hope they are a Minnie Adventure to you as well.

Look whats in our mailbox!

We are the winners, of the Mousestalgia giveaway. Its been almost a year now since we started listening to this podcast. A few weeks ago we entered the giveaway for a Theme Park0logy DVD highlighting the 60's. Since that was our teenage memories, it has been quite the win. We were so excited to have it arrive, we took a photo.

Inside was the DVD and some Mousetalgia Postcards. What a fun day. Thanks for a lot of fun Mousetalgia, and Carpe Kingdom.
