“It is understandable that I should have sentimental attachment for the little personage who played so big a part in the course of Disney Productions and has been so happily accepted as an amusing friend wherever films are shown around the world. He sill speaks for me and I still speak for him.” – Walt Disney 🎡 🎢 🏖 #pixarpier #disneyland #pixarfest #disney #disneycaliforniaadventure #pixar #disneyworld #disneylife #disneyparks #californiaadventure #incredicoaster #magickingdom #toystory #disneylandresort #upmovie #happiestplaceonearth #monstersinc #theincredibles #toystoryland #disneylove #dca #incredibles #carsland #ferriswheel #paintthenight #pixarfest #disneyside #waltdisney #mickeymouse #mickeysfunwheel

Happy #throwbackthursday Everyone! Here’s a piece of concept artwork Imagineer Tim Delaney envisioned, a long time ago, the original ‘Star Wars land’ with a full scale Millennium Falcon and a Space Mountain dome designed as the Death Star replacing the Tomorrowland in Disneyland Paris!

America, spread your golden wings Sail on freedom's wind across the sky. Great bird with your golden dreams flying high, flying high. America, you must keep dreaming now Dreaming the promised vow of your pioneers America, keep on flying now. Keep your spirit free. Facing new frontiers. Restless one in a world of change, Keeping dreams aloft in the rain, Spirit free, soaring through the clouds, Of time, of time, Spirit free, you must keep flying now, Reaching to touch the sky, towards the winds of change, Oh restless one, search for brighter day, Soaring through stormy skies, with your head held high, America, spread your golden wings Sail on freedom's wind across the sky. Great bird with your golden dreams, Flying high, flying high, Flying high, flying high! Though I was not alive for the horrific events of 9/11, the event has changed my life in ways that I can’t even imagine. Long live America. 🇺🇸🦅🙏 • #disney #disneyland #disneyworld #tokyodisneyland #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #travel #castmember #september11 #waltdisneyworld #nyc #foxnews #cnn #pentagon #mikepence #donaldtrump #epcotcenter #epcot #americanflag #america #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #epcot #trivia #mickey #magickingdom #911 #lestweforget #twintowers

Come, visit a world where you can walk amongst African Wildlife. Take off on a rollicking log flume floating past pride rock. Delight in the pageantry and puppetry of a big-as-Broadway show. Eat authentic African meals, and navigate an elephant’s graveyard. Step into and relive the musical epic loved for generations. Experience the Circle of Life. The Pride Lands – World of The Lion King Only at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Happy #newridefriday Everyone! Here’s a 30 second advertisement for a concept of a new Lion King/African themed expansion to Disney’s Animal Kingdom which I have been working on for more than half a year! This expansion would take place where the current “Rafiki’s Planet Watch” is today, and would connect to the African and Asia areas of the park. It would feature two new rides, a ‘log flume’ type ride similar to Splash Mountain, recounting the story of simba, climaxing on a drop down into an elephant’s graveyard, which also doubles as a playground; and an ‘inverted spinning dark ride coaster’ similar to ‘Arthur - The Ride’ at Europa-Park in Germany. The land would also feature a new entrance and enhancements to ‘Festival of the Lion King’. This 30 second ad is just a glimpse of what I’ve been working on. I’m working on a more in-depth 3 minute ad, which I’ll post more updates on soon. Thanks for Watching and reading. Check out @imagineerjax for his drawings for this concept! • #lionking #thelionking #africa #harambe #animalkingdom #disneysanimalkingdom #disneyanimalkingdom #abugsland #ad #simba #wdw #conceptart #concept #lion #safari #splashmountain #history #happy #bright #fun #imagineering #vintagedisneyland#disneybound #disneyimagineering #tesla #mickey #magickingdom #rotoscope #animated

Here’s something cool that I want to share with you guys! This is a photo of @stlnvngo ‘s nametag and welcome letter to imagineering and work on the new marvel lands, signed by both imagineering heads Scot Drake, and John Mauro; and Iron Man himself, Mr Tony Stark! Apparently it was delivered in a folder labeled ‘Top Secret’ with Tony Stark’s signature on it! Congratulations Eddie on receiving this for his incredible hard work and talent, and Marvel and WDI for creating such a memorable acceptance!

I made this short video to show my disgust and and anger towards one of the saddest times in Disneyland history. When Disneyland’s $20 million New Tomorrowland opened in 1967, two striking murals by Mary Blair faced each other. Unfortunately, Walt Disney died before he could see the New Tomorrowland completed. The south mural (on the Adventures Thru Inner Space building) lasted until 1986. It was replaced by a space mural, which served as the facade for the new Star Tours attraction (1987). In The Art and Flair of Mary Blair, John Canemaker wrote: The Tomorrowland murals were not truly permanent: both “disappeared” when they were covered over by renovations in 1987 and 1998. “Mary Blair’s murals were not damaged or painted on,” [longtime Imagineering executive] Marty Sklar notes, “but the decision was made for cost reasons to leave them in place—hidden treasures at Disneyland!” It would be great if Marty Sklar’s story of undamaged murals—hidden treasures—were true. Unfortunately, evidence suggests otherwise. A video by AdamConlea, which I juxtaposed with the original vision of these murals, shows workers destroying entire rows of tiles during the construction of Star Tours. Openings were cut into the Star Tours building, destroying the bottom of the mural. The only reason any of the south mural survived is because it was easier to cover the remainder than to destroy it entirely. The north mural has fared better. A new curved wall was built over the Mary Blair mural in 1997. Although the work was not done with preservation in mind, most of the north mural is entombed behind the wall. There was no need to cut openings because the north building was already open at the ground level, with the mural above. Maybe bringing optimism and joy back to Tomorrowland would be a good idea—even if it requires carefully reproducing the missing and damaged tiles. That seems unlikely to happen, but if the original drawings are still safely locked away at WDI, it’s not an impossibility. • #itsasmallworld #disneyland #disney #startours #starwars #destruction #instadisney #disneylandresort #happiestplaceonearth #maryblair #horrific #fantasyland #waltdisney #walt

Tonight’s story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a gigantic Hollywood Hotel sign still in operation, in backstage Disneyland. We invite you, if you dare, to like this post because in tonight’s episode, you are the star. And this post teleports you directly to…The Twilight Zone. 😳😱👻 Photo by @blackeysgarage 📸 ⏰🛎🕰 • #disney #disneyland #towertuesday #towerofterror #towerofterrortuesday #disneyworld #disneyshollywoodstudios #disneyscaliforniaadventure #hollywoodtowerhotel #disneycaliforniaadventure #guardiansofthegalaxy #jamesgunn #waltdisneyworld #guardiansofthegalaxymissionbreakout #construction #carthaycircle #dca #disneyside #disneylife #history #bluesky #waltdisneyimagineering #twilightzone #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #thetwilightzone #disneyhollywoodstudios #droppingin #rodsterling

Happy #newridefriday everyone! I’m currently swamped with both client, personal and school work, so I have no time at the moment to create a new piece of art for the next few weeks, let alone have free time. I decided that I wanted to share some old art that has been buried in my feed, so I can share it with some new friends. I’m not overly happy with these images now, but I am proud of that fact. It shows how far I’ve come in this short amount of time. This is some concept art for an #indianajones Overlay at #dinolandusa and The Theatre In The Wild at #animalkingdom. Feel free to zoom in and look around! The first image shows an overview of the land, with #dinosaur converted to Indiana Jones Adventure, and all of the carnival rides and shops converted to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril from Disneyland Paris. The second and third images shows the bridge to the Theatre In The Wild converted to an entrance to this new land, and the old entrance to Dinoland converted to an Indiana Jones themed one. The forth image shows the entrance of the Theatre In The Wild, converted to a #petra inspired facade. • #disney #disneyland #pets #painted #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #painting #castmember #waltdisneyworld #wdw #disneysanimalkingdom #dinoland #harrisonford #raidersofthelostark #indianajonesadventure #georgelucas #happy #indianajonesetletempleduperil #bright #mickey #magickingdom #conceptart #seanconnery #pixarpier

📷: @brit_at_wdw Here’s a view that I’ve wanted to share for ages! Here’s an angle of Expedition Everest that you don’t see too often! This is the 9th wonder of the world, THE BACKSIDE OF EVEREST! I love this angle, as it shows how imagineers make the most of limitations. They didn’t have the budget to create fake rockwork for an angle not seen by the average guest, and can not be seen from within the AK berm. Faced with this limitation, they chose to theme the industrial showbuilding built into the mountain as Nepalese buildings built in front of the forbidden mountain. On the right you can also see a painted mountain range, which blends into the mountain from a distance. @joerohde and his team are geniuses! 🏔 🎋 🇳🇵 #expeditioneverest #joerhode #hiddenmickey #magickingdom #animalkingdom #nepal #everest #animalkingdomlodge #2006 #disneyworld #backstage #magicband #fastpassplus #backstagedisney #disneysanimalkingdom #orlando #florida #castle #hub #epcot #disney #waltdisneyworld #disneyland #wdw #junglebook #safari #legendoftheforbiddenmountain #forbiddenmountain #annualpassholder #discoyeti

Yes, as the slides say, California Here I Come! Unlike Walt however, I have a little more than just a suitcase, and a dream, I’m bring my incredibly supportive Mother! I’m going to be in California from the 15th of September to the 4th of October, staying right next to Disneyland from the 15th to the 22nd, flying to San Francisco from the 23rd to the 28th, and then staying in LA from the 29th to the 4th! We have some great plans already lined up, including going to the Monterey Jazz Festival, touring Alcatraz at night, going to the Walt Disney Family Museum, and hopefully going on Bob Gurr’s Waltland Tour! However, the main purpose of this trip is to relax in the Happiest Place on Earth and meeting you guys! If you are in the area, I would love to catch up with you! Whether that’s in the parks, at an In-N-Out Burger, or waking down Hollywood Boulevard, I would love to chat. DM me! Love, Jacques.

Hi, I’m Jacques! I am 15 years old and I live in, and am from Australia! I have loved Disney Parks ever since I went to Disneyland Paris when I was very young, and returned there a few years later! In September 2012, I went to Disneyland for the first time and was utterly blown away. My parents had been there before in their lives, and were telling me stories of the history of the park, and what it was like when they were there. At the time my largest passion was puppetry, but soon that morphed into a love for Disney Parks, and a fascination with the world of Themed Entertainment. Through YouTube and Instagram, I began to learn more and more about the history and secrets of Disneyland and Walt Disney World and became fascinated with both. In September 2016, our family travelled to the US, and because this was the first trip where I had some say as to what we did, and was the first trip where I absolutely loved Disney, at the start of the trip we stayed at Walt Disney World for Four days, and then went on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas, before going to New York. It was absolutely incredible. From that trip on, I knew that I had to use my creativity to create themed experiences in my future. Last year, I opened this account and I cannot get the words to say how much my love for Disney Parks has grown, and how many new friends I have made. Meeting new incredible people like Ryan @keystonemagic and Jackson @imagineerjax has been a highlight of the last year. I am so fortunate to have a family that is supportive of my passion. In fact my mum bought me these balloons out of the blue when I hit 1000. She knew that it meant so much to me. I can’t wait to give you guys more of an insight into my life and learn more about you. Thanks for everything so far. 💖

From the bottom of my heart, and would love to thank each and one of you who have joined me so far on this crazy ride. I’ve been posting for just a little over a year and could have never expected to be here now. Though I hoped and dreamed, I never thought it would actually happen. Even though only about 20% of you are actually active, that’s still 200 people who care about these weird little posts, either about historical events, or art I’ve made. Thank you. I have some big announcements and my face reveal coming in the next few days. Stay Tuned. Here’s to the next 1000. 💖 💕 💗 • #disney #disneyland #disneyworld #tokyodisneyland #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #mickeymouse #castmember #shanghaidisneyland #waltdisneyworld #wdw #disneyblog #disneyig #disneygram #disneyside #disneylife #history #happy #hiddenmickey #fun #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #disneystyle #trivia #mickey #magickingdom #1000followers #waltdisney #1000

🎉 Happy 63rd Birthday Disneyland! 🎉 As my recent home-away-from-home, it has definitely changed me for the better. I love being creative and have always had a love for Disney Parks since a young age, but only recently I discovered the creativity and incredible passion behind these parks. I could speak for hours on how passionately I feel about all Disney Parks, but Disneyland is the park that started it all, and feels the most like home. Going to the park feels like a warm hug from someone I love and thankfully I’ll be there again soon. Happy 63 years young Disneyland. Here’s to (at least!) another 63! 🍰 🎁 🎂 P.S: I do wonder how Disneyland will end from time to time. Hopefully nothing happens in my lifetime. All beautiful things must die someday, but at least we have it now. 😊 💖 • #disney #disneyland #disneyland63 #disneylandresort #disneyscaliforniaadventure #disneyside #disneycaliforniaadventure #californiaadventure #dca #disneylandbirthday #1955 #wdw #disneylandcalifornia #disneygram #63 #disneylife #history #disneyland63rdanniversary #turnbacktuesday #toallwhocometothishappyplacewelcome #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #disneystyle #hereyouleavetodayandentertheworldofyesterdaytomorrowandfantasy #mickey #magickingdom #waltdisneyimagineering #wed #wedenterprises

Happy #newridefriday Everyone! For my second NRF with @imagineerjax , we decided to create a new attraction for Shanghai Disneyland, creating a functioning train for their park! However this train is not an ordinary Disney Parks train, it has screens for windows and time travels to each land it goes to, similar to Universal Orlando’s Hogwarts Express! The Shanghai Disneyland Railroad is the creation of an unknown inventor who has harnessed steam power as a source to travel through time and into different dimensions. Inside each of the railroads stations guests are exposed to many of the inventions and experiments that the mysterious inventor stored inside his train stations as it seems he has run out of room at his main workshops. Each of his three trains are different and tell a unique story on board as they travel to the different themed lands within Shanghai Disneyland. Here you can see it travel through Mickey Avenue, then Tomorrowland, then Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Treasure Cove, and then finally Adventure Isle. ❗️Go to @imagineerjax ‘s page and have a look at what he created last week!❗️ • #toystoryland #mickeyavenue #mickeymouse #tomorrowland #tron #thegrid #shanghai #shanghaidisneyland #hogwartsexpress #waltdisneyworld #wdw #fantasyland #peterpansflight #piratesofthecaribbean #potc #adventureisle #history #happy #bright #fun #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #toontown #shanghaidisney #mickey #magickingdom #conceptart #animated

Happy July 5th, Day after Independence Day! I was going to upload this short video tribute yesterday, but technical difficulties meant that I had to post it today! Oh well! This video is a compilation of four American themed lands/parks/pavilions that Disney either built, or were stuck in the planning stages. Disney and American culture have been intertwined for decades. Here’s just a few examples of that. 🇺🇸 🦅 🇺🇸 #independenceday #fourthofjuly #july #disneysamerica #america #americanadventure #usa #fireworks #independenceday #freedom #redwhiteandblue #americanadventurepavillion #july4 #libertysquare #starsandstripes #hauntedmansion #july5 #independence #family #july #flag #celebrate #holiday #unitedstates #happyfourth #americanflag #hallofpresidents #donaldtrump #trump #epcot

Here’s a photo from the late 1960s of guests taking the tram to the Ticket Booths From the Disneyland Parking Lot. This shot seems to be taken looking towards what is currently Disney California Adventure as you can see the Arena at the at the current Anaheim Convention Center in the background. Originally, the arena was home to the Anaheim Amigos of the American Basketball Association during the first ABA season, 1967–68. The franchise relocated to the Los Angeles Sports Arena and became the Los Angeles Stars immediately thereafter; the team eventually moved to Salt Lake City and became the Utah Stars, capturing the 1970–71 ABA Championship. The Stars' subsequent fan support in Utah set the foundation for the NBA's Utah Jazz. The San Diego Friars of WTT played some of their home matches in the arena between 1975 and 1977. In 1978, the Anaheim Oranges of WTT used the arena as their primary home venue. The arena was also home to the California Surf of the NASL for one indoor season (1979–80). The venue served as the site for wrestling at the 1984 Summer Olympics. The arena can now be seen from Pixar Pier. 🚀 🛰 🛸 • #vidcon #disneyland #disneyworld #ttcpeoplemover #monorail #transportation #rocketrods #anaheimconventioncenter #tanacon #waltdisneyworld #d23expojapan2018 #d23 #white #tomorrowland #ttapeoplemover #tesla #spacex #peoplemover #spacemountainmission2 #johnhench #tonybaxter #wdi #waltdisneyimagineering #tanamongeau #disneylegends #disneylegend #tomorrowland #blackandwhite #magickingdom #tomorrowlandtuesday
