Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is slightly double exposed on the House of the Future. Its medieval meets mid-century! Medievalism and modernism have never been so close. For a mere, but marvelous ten years, between 1957 and 1967, Disneyland’s legendary all-plastic House of the Future was just outside of Tomorrowland, perched on a pedestal, steps from the castle. They both represent fairy tales – one speaks of the future and the other of the past.CLICK FOR MORE!

Behold the glory of the Mark Twain, the prettiest paddle wheeler on the planet. Divine in every Dixie detail, it’s the ultimate old-timey attraction in Disneyland’s Frontierland and has been since the day it was launched, 60 years ago. Here, you see it in 1957.
Over the years, I’ve boarded that beauty more times than I can remember, and enjoyed that round-the-island journey enough times to have gone down the entire Mississippi river at least once.
So, what a surprise it was when I heard you could actually “drive” the Mark Twain, and then get a certificate that says “I drove the Mark Twain,” or something like that.
The TWA Rocket to the Moon is an icon of Disneyland’s early days. It was the centerpiece and crowning outer space touch of the original Tomorrowland, “the world of 1987.” But that wasn’t the only TWA Rocket to the Moon. I’m not talking about the smaller scale “tribute” to the original that stands in Tomorrowland today.CLICK FOR MORE!
Everywhere I travel, I always ask, “What’s the local food here?” Seems every place has something edible they’re known for, and our beloved downtown LA is no exception.
Among the classic downtown foods we enjoy on my “Disneyland” tour of Downtown Los Angeles, delicious eggrolls at Hop Louis, since 1941, fantastic French Dip Sandwiches at Phillipe’s, since 1908, mouth-watering, fresh strawberry whipped cream cake from the Phoenix Bakery, since 1938, and tasty taquitos at Cielito Lindo, where they’ve been perfecting the recipe since 1934!
