    According to the new book "Welcome Aboard the Disneyland Railroad" by Steve DeGaetano, the current message in Morse Code reads.....
    "To all who come to Disneyland, welcome.Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future".

    I'm pretty sure that only the first line of the speech can be heard from the station (To all who come to this happy place, welcome.) A guest waiting for a train had tried translating it and that's what she had come up with.

    Also... if you want to see and hear it "live", get a copy of the Disney Treasures DVD
    "Disneyland USA", it has the original live broadcast of the openning day festivities that was shown on TV.

    If you wish t see the speech in person at Disneyland, it is written on a plaque at the foot of the flagpole in Town Square.

    Scarily enough, I know it by memory.

    Yes, I actually typed that completely from memory, which is why there are probably typos.
