Did You Know: Alice In Wonderland Dark Ride (Disneyland)

Did you know, 

On June 14, 1958 came the second attraction based on the movie Alice in Wonderland.  
 
The beginning of the ride a caterpillar takes you up a hill and comes down the hill at the end.  The Alice In Wonderland attraction is actually on the second floor of the building that houses Mr. Toads Wild Ride.  

Curiouser and curiouser, which is one of the reasons I love this ride!

Disney Cup Collections

Welcome back to blogmas day 23!! With Christmas just around the corner I thought it would be fun to share my little Disney cup, mug, sippy collection! So let’s get started!!!! 

  
Here are 37 cups, mugs, and sippys!!! Now I started off with just one and it grew to another and another and bayum 36 more cups later! A big shout out to my Aunty Rosie who recently added to my collection which is awesome! I have some from Disneyland, Disney World and a collectible from Burger King. 

  
These are my favorite cups, I use these on a daily basis…it’s pretty bad considering I have so many to choose from but for three of the mugs I use them because they are so big, and can fit more tea! 

  
But my al time favorite sipper is BB-8! I recently got this at the parks and I don’t use it BUT it’s the GREATEST thing ever invented!! He is such a cute little droid! 

What is your all time favorite Disney cup that you own? Let me know in the comments below!!!

On This Day: The Three Caballeros

December 21, 1944 Los Tres Caballeros premiered in Mexico City! 

  
The film follows Donald Duck and two of his pals Jose Carioca representing Portuguese and Panchito Pistoles representing Mexico in there journey through Latin America! 

  
The Three Caballeros was Disneys first attempt at combining live action and animation. Surprising enough it was nominated for two academy awards. 

  
The movie was released in the United States on February 3, 1945, it was the seventh animated movie in the Disney animated features canon. 

This is easily one of my favorites I love all the music and the crazy adventures or troubles they get themselves into!!

That’s So Raven

One of my all time FAVORITE Disney Channel shows was Thats So Raven, which aired January 17, 2003 until November 10, 2007.  This show introduces the Baxter family as they manage there daughter Raven’s (Raven Simone) ability to see into the future.  This show definitely made some Disney Channel History because it was one of the shows to  break its own “65 limit” (where Disney will cancel a show after 65 episodes to keep it from going stale and from collecting residuals). That’s So Raven was also the first Disney Channel Show to break 100 episode and the first to have a spin off series, which was Corey in the House. 

 

The original name for the character Raven was Dawn Baxter and the show was originally called ‘The Future is on Me’, they then changed Dawn to Rose and the show was going to be called ‘Absolutely Psychic’ and finally, ‘That’s So Raven’. Not only did the character go through a lot of name changes along with the title of the show BUT so did the role of the best friend, Chelsea’s original name was Emma, who was originally the role of the Psychic.

  
If you have ever watched the show you may or may not recognize the school, if it seemed familiar in any way its because its the same school set they used for the show Saved By The Bell which was another one of my favorite shows.

  The filming for “That’s So Raven” was done in studio like many TV shows, but the story was set in San Francisco and if you are ever in the city you can find the home from the opening credits at 461 Ashbury Street, which is right on the corner of Ashbury and Page and believe me when you see it you will know its the house. Just make sure you are respectful to the people who live in there.
