Flashback Friday – Carnation Plaza Gardens

As many of you know, the Carnation Plaza Gardens hosted its last dance last weekend, as it is being closed and converted to a new Princess Meet and Greet area.

Flashback Friday – Snow White’s Grotto

Flashback Friday – Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse

Long before Tarzan ruled the jungles of Adventureland, another family called this exotic locale home.  From 1962-1999 the Swiss Family Robinson opened their treehouse home for the Disneyland masses to experience.  In 1999, however, the treehouse received a complete makeover to align with the release of Disney’s newest animated film, Tarzan.  Thankfully, the Robinson’s live [...]
