    While at Disneyland for our anniversary, Russ arranged a special surprise for me! I had never done this before and was very excited to be in the pilothouse!

    Now my bucket list is:
    1. Walt's Apartment
    2. The Roundhouse
    3. Ride with engineer on Steam Train

    I have a feeling only #3 will be accomplished.

    What is on your bucket list?

      Ask nicely to one of the cast members right before they start boarding if the Captain is allowing guest into the wheel house. If so they will take you into the wheel house to pilot the Mark Twain ring the bell and blow the whistle. Also you get to sign a guest book. I have done this a few times and its a great view of the river.

        The pilot also gave me a tour of the Mark Twain as we went up the levels of stairs, explaining the engines, the engineer, names of the decks, etc. It was quite informative. They receive the same training as the steam trains conductors and can work both rides.

          Doesn't the new walk in Walt's footsteps tour take you to his apartment?

              i'm so glad you were able to do that; how sweet of your husband to arrange it. your list is so short now! i'm not sure about how to get into the roundhouse, but if you do the "in walt's footsteps" tour, you get to see some of walt's apartment.

              "oh, i just love happy endings!"

                That's wonderful that you got to do that. We got to do that on our last trip, so much fun. This trip I'm crossing off another item...Club 33.

                  I've done this before as well a few years ago, and it really is fun and cool. Glad you enjoyed! We also got a certificate at the end that I have around here some where.

                    Welcome to the club! I took my daughters up there last year. It was a lot of fun. For peasants like me, it's a great, free way to feel like a somebody.

                                    But please don't kick the bucket any time soon.
                                    I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                                      Yes to both! The pilot made sure I signed the book as soon as we entered the wheelhouse. In talking to him all the way around the river, I found we know some of the same people! small world!

                                        So much fun! Glad you had the opportunity to enjoy such a treat! My friends and I were up there last Sunday. Like you, we took some nice photos, rang the bell, pulled the steam horn and signed the book. This weekend we're going to ask to join the conductor at the front of the steam train.
