I took this picture of an Audio-Animatronic Native America chief from the Mark Twain riverboat in Disneyland, California.
Below is a 1959 newspaper clipping of Walt Disney in front of a rendering of the Walt Disney Elementary School in his boyhood hometown of Marceline, Missouri, and below that is a photo I took of the still-operating school as it appears today.
Check out these Disney character additions to “it’s a small world” in Tokyo Disneyland! Thanks to my great friend Katsumi Kagaya for sending these photos!
For the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom today I thought I’d post this shot I took of some of the beautiful artwork in the park. There’s so much great detail if you get the chance to slow down and look around!
Here’s a special peek inside the Walt Disney Elementary School in Marceline, Missouri, the city where Walt Disney began his childhood education.
When the city decided to name their elementary school Walt Disney Elementary, Walt was so touched, he attended the dedication, and brought gifts. He presented the school with a 55 foot flagpole from the Squaw Valley Winter Olympics for which he was “Chairman of Pageantry.” He also gave them an entire set of encyclopedias, and a specially designed playground.
Walt also had artist Bob Moore decorate the school with special artwork. The paintings you see here are in the school’s gymnasium.
What a treat it was to have the opportunity to visit inside this historic Disney location! Thanks, to Kaye and the city of Marceline!
I took this photo of the Christmas scene in the #CarouselOfProgress attraction at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Although it’s in the show year-round, I thought it was appropriate to post for this time of year. I’ve loved the Carousel of Progress since I used to see it in Disneyland back in the 1970s! I vividly remember the sad day that I went to see it and was told the attraction was closed forever. While the show was moved to Florida and is quite a bit different than the one I used to see, I still can’t believe I am able to bring my own boys to see it, with the rotating theater and the classic Sherman Brothers song, “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow.” I posted this picture and lots more on my Instagram, come join me there https://www.instagram.com/mouse_clubhouse/
For the 35th anniversary of Epcot today, which also happens to be the 46th anniversary of Walt Disney World, here’s a photo I took of one of the original opening day Epcot (or as it was then called EPCOT Center) attractions. This photo is from World of Motion and depicts the scene when sore-footed cave people decide it’s time to invent the wheel. Also, here’s some photos of Disney World under construction http://blog.mouseclubhouse.com/more-1960s-walt-disney-world-construction-pics/
