        It sure feels like you climb more than 80 feet on the initial lift!
        Like this post? Read more like it at The Disneyland Dilettante!

            I also saw this on Eddie Soto's twitter feed. I wanted to point out that the graphic originally was published by the Orange County Register and has been around for several years.

            Just wanted to give credit to the proper source.

                  Sounds like the article may be due for an update! Since then we've seen the paint scheme darkened and the bobsleds lost their "sweetheart" seating design.

                    I can't quite decide if this is information I'd want or not. What if he's one of the people I've been yelling at for years? Lol.

                      There have been a few moments where I've respected his privacy and bit my tongue. Like one time when fellow Micechatters seemed hell-bent on correcting him about something he was clearly the authority on. I worry sometimes if I've ever been guilty of doing the same.

                        a question: was the Matterhorn exterior skin built in such a way that it made assents by the climbers easier? that a pathway was sort of built for an assent...
                        I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                          I think I remember reading years ago that there were permanent rope-anchors installed, but I haven't been able to find any authoritative source to confirm it. A couple posts on the SuperTopo Climber's Forum mention it was "sport bolted" (rigged for climbing) and had "holds," but the Daveland article seems to suggest there were none. The former DL climbers mention there being multiple routes to the top.

                              Love the Tinker Bell break room. Not sure if it is accurate, but a bed, lamp & table, mini-fridge, and water closet. What more could a guy or gal ask for??

                              Location location location... I would move in and treat it as my weekend cabin in the mountains.

                                Exactly! Disney should turn Tinker Bell's room into some sort of "fantasy lodging" thing. When she's not flying, that is. Or, if there's space (perhaps not), craft some other cool alpine cabin-ish place. I'm sure lots of people would line up to blow whatever price Disney came up with!

                                  The drawing doesn't show the elevator that goes through the middle to ground level. I had to walk off the Matterhorn from right after the chain lift and they took us down in that very small elevator. Two guests plus a CM on each trip were all that would fit. I don't remember seeing a big open area at the top where we entered so maybe the elevator doesn't go past 80 feet high, or it makes a few stops at different levels, but there has to be a way not shown on the drawing to get to that upper 67 feet.

                                      Thank you, Mr. Wiggins...just shows there is so much history and background to the Disneyland attractions...
                                      I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                                        What?
                                        There’s an elevator in the Matterhorn?
                                        I had no clue.
                                        Any pictures?
