Located right next to the Pin Traders store, Old West Cinnamon Rolls The cinnamon rolls here are amazing.
the cinnamon rolls are a “design your own” situation. The menu consists of a base price of $4.75 for a plain cinnamon roll (and by plain they mean NO frosting). Additional toppings are $1.00, so you can build the designer cinnamon roll of your dreams. Toppings include Frosting, Walnuts, Almonds, Pecans & Cherries.
The cinnamon rolls are also available in a “U-Bake” 4 pack to go for $16.99 or a “U-Make” cinnamon roll mix for $9.99.

Walt Disney worked extensively on this attraction, but passed away before it opened in 1967. It features one of the most elaborate uses of Audio Animatronics figures ever attempted by Disney.
The Pirate’s Lair experience embarks when aspiring pirates traverse the Rivers of America in Frontierland on rafts — with island maps in hand — and head ashore at Pirate Point where they are greeted by Captain Jack Sparrow’s warning of his presence on the isle.
Cavern explorers in Dead Man’s Grotto will encounter ghostly apparitions, buried treasure and mysterious voices, as well as discover an ornate chest that holds the heart of the villainous Davy Jones. Brave souls will be shocked to feel the thump of his beating heart and hear the strains of his ghostly voice.
In a watery inlet alongside a ramshackle barrel bridge in Smuggler’s Cove, treasure seekers might spot a sunken ship. A closer look discovers a chest that can only be revealed by operating a hoist to lift it from its underwater nest.
Unwitting guests roaming the island may stumble upon a rather intimidating suspended bone cage, similar to the one depicted in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. However, this seemingly unfortunate situation could lend itself as the perfect opportunity to pose for photos as trapped prisoners of the cannibal tribe that menaced Captain Jack.
Down another path, guests may meet up with roving pirates seeking new recruits to take the Pirate Oath, as well as The Bootstrappers, a fun-loving band of rogues who are always looking high and low for sing-a-long participants.
In a Bedroom in the Disneyland Dream suite it is filled with magical things I think need to go in my room, for example at bedtime, a special “kiss goodnight” effects show transforms the room into a tropical paradise as mermaids appear in the painting above the bed and a familiar pirate ship silhouette soars across the face of the moon.
Kathryn Beaumont, who provided the voice of Alice in Wonderland in the 1951 film, returned to do additional dialogue for the Alice in Wonderland ride and the mad tea party teacups at Disneyland when it was remodeled in 1982. here’s a 1982 photo of Kathryn and John Debney, who composed new incidental music for the attraction and oversaw the recording of the new soundtrack
We love real couple Jenn and Peter’s choice of Disneyland as a wedding venue.

When standing in line for the Jungle Cruise make sure that you check out all of the Photography’s on the walls, Listen to the music that is playing in the back ground as you listen to the music just start dancing and have a little fun!
Many Winnie the Pooh fans should recognize the name Mr. Sanders. It appears on the sign hangs above Pooh’s doorway. Left by the home’s previous resident, it seems that Pooh Bear hasn’t quite gotten around to replacing it.
Note: There is some debate to where the name Mr. Sanders actually comes from. Frank Sanders was a noted publisher in London, but A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh (1926) and The House at Pooh Corner (1928) were published by London’s Methuen Publishing, Ltd. Instead, illustrator Ernest H. Shepard may have simply added Mr. Sanders to his original drawings - a jab at personal friend, Frank Sanders.
but anyways you’ll notice pooh makes his home atop a shop in in Critter Country
The Dapper Dans are a barbershop quartet that has been performing at Disneyland since 1959. They also perform at Disney World and other international Disney locations. You can usually find them around Main Street in Disneyland, and sometimes they are on a Schwinn four-seater ordered especially by Walt Disney.
Even though I would not usually stop for a barbershop quartet, these guys kinda rock. It seems very difficult to become a member of the Dapper Dan and once a member joins, he sticks around until retirement or death. One of the quartets in Disneyland was together for ten years!
Not only did Steve Anderson direct MEET THE ROBINSONS, he’s also the voice talent behind the villainous Bowler Hat Guy and several other characters.
Andrew Jackson’s headquarters on Tom Sawyers Island. Many of the items seen here are now used as props inside the Haunted Mansion’s attic scene.
True facts. Specifically, the portrait of George Washington and Andrew Jackson’s boots are easy to spot if you know where to look, last time I checked.
The next time you go to Mickey’s house, take your time going through it! It has a ton of “hidden Mickeys” in it, but it also has a ton of cleverly done “personal” things of Mickeys. in a glass case, just after you walk in, straight to the back wall, lower left corner…Mickey has a passport that is stamped in each area that a Disneyland is located, and it is stamped with the date that that Disneyland was opened. Lots of cleaver things.
