Happy Birthday Disneyland


Today was Disneyland's 56th anniversary. We love being there for the birthday and spent the morning enjoying the park and chatting with some wonderful cast members.

Daily Photo Tour - The Sword in the Stone


The Sword in the Stone is a classic place to take a picture at Disneyland. It's also a great place to people watch as men and women, boys and girls grasp the sword white knuckled, to see if they are the right wise ruler of England. I miss the days when Merlin would come out for a ceremony that would find strong men failing to pull the sword from the stone and a child succeeding in a magical moment. It's one of those fond memories of yesterday that I hope they will bring back.

This is great,I would love to see more shots of the castle from this side. It just has a whole different feeling from inside the courtyard area.

Thanks LynneAnne! I agree, there is very quaint, intimate feeling from this point of view.
