Some of my favorite pieces of background music in Disneyland come from Tomorrowland. Whenever I hear this, I just imagine I’m at a busy Spaceport waiting to board a starship that will take me to another solar system.
Bored at home? Wishing you were at Disneyland on Pirates of the Caribbean? :)
The Com Chat from Space Mountain, a piece of ambient music that’s the favorite of many Disney fans.
I had a family at the entrance of Winnie the Pooh
They all held fastpasses, but their little boy refused to enter the line.
He was terrified.
He wasn’t afraid of Pooh.
He wasn’t afraid that it would be dark.
He wasn’t afraid that things would pop out and scare him.
He wasn’t afraid that it would be fast.
He wasn’t afraid that there would be any drops
He wasn’t afraid of any of the typical things kids worry about.
He was afraid that he was going to get stuck in the honey.
Before Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Disneyland, there was Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland. This took riders on a Jungle Cruise-esque journey to see what the “wild west” had to offer. Through Rainbow Caverns, around the beautiful Cascade Falls (demolished in 1998), into Bear Country, and through the Living Desert. The ride was expansive, and covered much of Frontierland today.
Many remnants of the ride remain today: Tunnels from Bear Country that can be seen on the Disneyland Railroad, cacti from the Living Desert were relocated to Walt Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and a tribute to Rainbow Caverns is located in Disneyland’s version of this ride.
