  • [Game] Where in the Parks Picture Game Intro and Photo #1

    My family wasn’t thrilled about having our pictures on public display (although they don’t seem to mind when they’re on Facebook), so with all the angst I caused both here and at home I just decided to replace all the pictures. Sorry for all the hubbub.

                The Pinocchio place was called Village Haus, I think.

                I've been going to DL since I can remember, but this game just points out how much detail I don't remember! It's good for the old noggin! 😃
                I remember that terrible frozen pizza. I also think it was called Village Haus. I hadn't gone there since the 80s until recently. I went to the Red Rose Tavern for pizza flat bread, which wasn't bad. We had some fries for the table, I think they were garlic fries? Those were good. I also went for breakfast and had orange cream cheese french toast or sum such. Also not bad. I love Fantasyland so I am glad I can find something to eat there.

                You're spot on -- that was Welch's Grape Juice, between Snow White and the Mickey Mouse Club Theater. It sold grape juice and frozen juice bars, and was notable for its grape harvest mural from Fantasia.

                There was a thread about it 2013: "A Reminiscence: Welch's Grape Juice in Fantasyland."

                I wish I remembered this. I do remember the Mickey Mouse Club Theater. That mural is so charming. The parks need an infusion of Fantasia. I also would love for them to bring back frozen grape pops.

                Also, didn't Knotts used to sell boysenberry punch in a plastic sipper in the shape of a boysenberry? Or am I mixing up my memories between the two parks? This would have been in the 70s or early 80s.

                That one was a challenge. That paint scheme is in a couple places and you captured one of the least photographed spots in the park. lol

                Very cool thread though.
                I look at each picture, and can almost vision where it might be.
                A few times I've been in the right part of the park, and a few times I have no clue...

                Keep them coming.
                I’ll mix in a couple of easy ones today.

                Is that a D shield from the 60th in the upper right corner of the original photograph? That would narrow down the date I think.

                Edit: far right. Not upper right.

                River Belle Terrace, outside, facing the Rivers of America which has a construction scrim up it looks like.

                edit. actually, i think what i thought was a scrim is just the light hitting the netting around the walkways on the southern tip of Tom Sawyer Island.

                I don’t think I’d ever noticed that until my daughter had me take this picture of it.

                The evening I took that picture we went for the Fantasmic package. We hadn’t seen Fantasmic in a while so we surprised my daughter with it. Food wise it was pretty good. My wife loved the corn chowder. Different from other ones in the resort. Unfortunately the only way to get it was with the package meals.

                Back when it was cafeteria style that was our go to breakfast place if we forgot to make Carnation Cafe reservations and their wait was too long. They tried replicating it at Rancho Zocala and Village Haus, but it wasn’t the same.

                After they became sit down and eventually added breakfast I checked out the menu because I was excited about another sit-down breakfast option. I was floored by the high prices and immediately checked Carnation Cafe’s menu to see if their prices were raised. Luckily they weren’t. I still don’t get how the same thing at River Belle is so much more than at Carnation.

                Yup TL side, second to last "drop" (the one before the splash down)? Facing fwd on the monorail. Left side of train.

                I think.

                This is actually a fun game and beats the pants off the debate threads.

                My guess is the walkway between the Carthay Circle and the entrance to Carsland.

                I’m a serious Parade avoider so this is all guesswork on this one. lol

                That’s pretty close.

                We were basically standing right where the photo op for the waterfall is.

                Looks like the Plaza Inn to me.

                Looks like Paradise Garden in DCA.

                I Believe I see the gazebo in the background, which would mean Goofy’s sky school is behind that.

                Yep. I think the rest of the pictures will be a little easier.
