Thanks to Disney Parks photographer Matt Stroshane, who shot the scenic photo above, we can now imagine ourselves standing at the station as the train arrives. Through the talents of Disney Parks Broadcast Production, we also can hop aboard. With the help of a minature camera, we all can enjoy the train trip that no one has ever taken before.

Remembering Annette Funicello at Disneyland Park As you may know, Annette Funicello was discovered by Walt Disney himself while attending an amateur program at the Starlight Bowl in Burbank when she was just 13 years old. That single meeting led to one of the most enduring associations in show business history. Earlier today, Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger spoke for all of us at Disney when he said, “Annette was and always will be a cherished member of the Disney family, synonymous with the word Mouseketeer, and a true Disney Legend. She will forever hold a place in our hearts as one of Walt Disney’s brightest stars, delighting an entire generation of baby boomers with her jubilant personality and endless talent. Annette was well known for being as beautiful inside as she was on the outside, and she faced her physical challenges with dignity, bravery and grace. All of us at Disney join with family, friends, and fans around the world in celebrating her extraordinary life.”

Walt Disney's Los Angeles 1923-1931: Pedaling Past History Editors Note: When we last left Buddy Robinson, he had just rode his bicycle past the home of Robert Disney on Kingswell Avenue. Buddy suddenly remembers that he wants to check what's playing at the Vista Theatre, so he points his bicycle south off Kingswell onto Hillhurst Avenue. He travels the four blocks to the corner of Hillhurst and Hollywood Boulevard where the Vista is located. He decides that the double bill of Tailspin and The Three Musketeers is to his liking and quickly exchanges a dime for a ticket and a few hours of vintage Hollywood escapism.
