  • Random Curious Questions About The Park?

    So, everytime I go to the park (which is a lot for someone who lives in the Bay Area about 6 hours away), I always notice things and wonder why, how or what they are.

    So I just have some random questions, and here they are:

    1. Why was the panther removed from the rock on the DL RR track?
    2. Why has nothing been done to the "rock" on which the panther used to stand (it looks so bad. it's flat and it has holes/bumps (whatever they are) where the panthers paws stood)?
    3. When do the fish jump out of the water on the BT trail? I've never seen them and I've always wanted to.
    4. Why did they cover up the tunnel in which the train used to run through with crappy army camoflauge nets?

    And another question I have might be a bit hard to answer:

    When I was really little (I'm talking 2-4 years old in the late 80s, early 90s), I very vaguely remember walking about the old Disneyland Hotel and it's various shops/restaurants/mini attractions/etc. with my parents. Didn't there used to be a Stromboli's restaurant? and what else was there to do a the DL Hotel? Also, I remember somewhat of a museum like attraction that was at the Hotel area that had a bunch of photos, and memorabilia. All I distinctly remember is seeing two old old plush dolls of Mickey and Minnie in a glass exhibit thingy. I know this doesn't say much, but what was that? It might have been something for the 35th anniversary? I really don't know but I've ALWAYS wanted to know what that was, also to help me remember all of the amazing things that I luckily got to see before it changed. and not necessarily for the better...

    Any answers regarding these questions or just some little tidbits about the things that I would like to know would make me soooo happy!

    Nobody will ever know...

    And which rock are you referring to? There are quite a few in the DLR

      1. Why was the panther removed from the rock on the DL RR track?

      I don't remeber this?


      3. When do the fish jump out of the water on the BT trail? I've never seen them and I've always wanted to.

      I've seen actual fish in there. I just assumed it was those fish that made the ripples in the water.

      4. Why did they cover up the tunnel in which the train used to run through with crappy army camoflauge nets?

      From what I can remember all the rain one winter caused a tree to fall and it took out the railroad track and the cute little mine car. They covered it with the net to hide the damage...I think?....I wish they would put it back. I loved it.

        Oh I'm talking about when you begin your tour of DL on the RR and the narrator talks about Adventureland. Then he says "watch out! there may be wildlife lerking about!" or something like that. Then up until a few years ago, you used to be able to see a stuffed panther on a rock, looking like it was about to pounce you. Well, he is gone, but the rock is still there, and it looks bad because you can tell that something once stood there...


        anyone know about the DLH thingy I was talking about?

            Are you thinking of the glass case(trophy-esque?) filled with various disney memorobilia from a long period of time? And there are different toys,dolls,pictures, and things of that nature? If this is it, it is just to the right of the Disneyland Hotel lobby, past the "Wall of Fame"(with the various famous guests that have stayed at the hotel), near the main ballroom. Or, if you go in the convention entrance, where you enter for Goofy's Kitchen and Steakhouse 55, it is to the left, past the escalators and stairs, down the hall, and the display is on the left. Sorry the directions are so confusing.

            Hope This Helps!

              Those jumping fish, you just have to stand and watch.
              It happens fairly often.
              That's all I know

              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                The panther might return when the Railroad resumes operation at the end of next month. I'm pretty sure there was a Stromboli's Restaurant at the hotel, not sure when it closed (anyone here have Disney A-Z? It's almost certainly in there).

                  Yes, I do have Disney A-Z. I did not find a seperate listing for Strombolis but in the listing for Disneyland Hotel; (I quote) "The hotel has a large convention space, outdoor activities, including three swimming pools, and a selection of restaurants from the Monorail Cafe, Stromboli's and Shipyard Inn to the uscale Granville's." (Now obviously this is a bit dated my book is copyright 1996 and I noticed they had an updated version at the gallery about 3 weeks ago.

                    Stromboli's was located where the current Goofy's Kitchen is now.

                    The Photos are still located near the lobby of the Marina Tower.

                        Mechanical (though there are real ones too I think).
                        The bridge at Big Thunder Trail.
                        I think they're left from the mine train ride

                          in the water at the Big Thunder Trail bridge there are real koi and mechanical jumping fish (sometimes referred to as "Phantom Fish).
                          Will there be screams when the sun sets,
