Disneyland’s 60th Merchandise

One of the things that many Disney fans were excited about was the new merchandise offerings for the Disneyland 60th celebration.  With the diamond anniversary colour scheme of blue and silver, I was keen to see the available goodies to buy.  I love to shop, but I’m completely rubbish at it, and didn’t buy hardly … Continue reading

The return of the Hatbox Ghost

When Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction first opened in 1969, one of the effects was the Hatbox Ghost.  There were apparently some difficulties with the way the effect looked to the public, and within a short period of time, he was removed from the ride.

With Disneyland beginning the 60th anniversary celebration, I thought it would be fun to highlight some photos from the 50th.   We were lucky enough to visit Disneyland a few days after the 50th celebration kicked off in 2005.  With it came the new Parade of Dreams that ran through to the end of 2008. … Continue reading
