    Re: Clocks in Disneyland

    Pinocchio's Daring Journey should have more clocks, I mean, Gepetto is first and foremost a clock maker, after all.

      I've wondered why they don't sell clocks that look like the Gepetto made ones at the end of the ride. Those are so neat and I'd love to own one.

        The Main Street Station clock story:

        Seems the clock on Main Street Station was off by a few minutes one day. Maintenance was called, a worker climbed into the clock tower, and the clock was re-set.

        However, it was still wrong. The maintenance man climbed back into the clock tower, and again re-set the clock.

        It was still off.

        So, on a hunch, a manager accompanied the worker as he reset the clock. Following standard procedure, the worker called City Hall to verify the correct time. The manager watched as the City Hall telephone operator pulled back the curtains of her window, looked over to Main Street Station, and told the worker the "correct" time.

        Problem solved!

          Speaking of the Main Street Station clock, there was another, slightly more subtle use for the clock besides the telling of time.

          It was an advertisement.

          Timex, Elgin, and Lorus were all one-time sponsors of the clock, and all at one time had their name emblazoned in large letters on the clock faces.

            Maybe the next sponsor will know that the traditional Roman numeral for 4 on a clock face is IIII. It used to be that way till somebody "fixed" it.

            We can hope.

                Has anyone notice the clock underneth the castle looking from Fantasyland. This clock will always be at 4:01. A CM told me that it is set on the time of death of WD.

                    They used to sell them in a shop in Fantasyland. My MIL has one that her daughter bought her 20+ years ago.

                      Haven't seen that clock stopped at 4:01, but Walt Disney passed away at 9:30am.

                            The rumors are this:

                            The time of Walt Disney's Death
                            The time of Walt's Inaugural Speech at Disneyland
                            The time that a clock in the movie "Sleeping Beauty" freezes on to give reference to the movie.

                            all the same to me...
